34 weeks

Well, so much has gone in the past month since I last updated. First, our little girl is perfect, growing well so far seemingly healthy as far as nst's and ultrasounds can show.

I have been admitted twice for Pregnancy Induced Hypertension which sucks but what can I do. I am now on strict bedrest until she is born. I have no idea how I am going to make it much longer. I want her to stay in as long as humanly possible to ensure her health but my god I am so glad only a few more weeks to go. They threatened me with induction or csection two weeks in a row, so I am so glad that she has been allowed to stay in and cook some more

Tim is gone but with everything that has been going on healthy wise they changed his return date from 12-12 to 11-25 and now hopefully 11-20. His command is trying to make sure he is home for the birth or as soon as possible afterwards.

How far along: 34week and 4 days

Total weight gain: I haven't gained anything yet. I was in need of losing some weight before I got pregnant so as long as she is growing I am okay with it.

How much does baby weigh: As of the 16th of October she was around 6 pounds estimated.

Maternity clothes: Full on maternity but my pants are getting too tight in the belly. Since I am on bedrest, I hang in tank tops and boxers or big cotton dresses

Stretch marks: I have them already from my first pregnancy (loss)

Sleep: nearly impossible. I just can not get comfortable.

Best moment this week: Hearing her on Nst, laughing at everytime they put the band around my belly she would flip out and move so much they couldnt keep her on the monitor unless the nurse held the thing by hand without the band.

Movement: I joke and say she is ADHD like her dad because she never stays still.

Food cravings: Carrots and dip, hummus and pretzels...Just about anything I can dip

Belly button in or out: Its pretty much flat.

What I miss: Being able to walk around or sleep

What I'm looking forward to: Finally meeting my daughter and hopefully my husband making it for her birth.

Milestone: Keeping her in for another week! I am trying to take it day by day
