Pregnancy Photo Shoot - 37 weeks

My sister Chantelle was awesome and took pictures for Abe and I. Click HERE to see the album.

I've had 3 appointment days in the city to catch y'all up on.

Week 35 - Saw my high risk OB and endocrinologist. I had gained 1 lb from the previous appointment (3 weeks before) and was 121 lbs. Still blaming the diet because of my gestational diabetes the doctors weren't too worried.

Week 36 - Got an ultrasound and caught up with my ENT specialist, baby boy Harder was weighing in a 6 lbs! My ENT doctor said my next surgery would be in about a year and a half to two years... hoping to extend that longer by actually doing the nasal rinses I've been supposed to be doing all along :/ my bad.

Week 37 - Up to 124 lbs!!!!! this is 9 lbs heavier then my pre-pregnancy weight. hoping to pack a few more on before he arrives.
Got my strep B swab - it's negative!!.
Everyone was really happy with me (both the OB and endocrinologist). I also saw the anesthesiologist (in case of C-section)... wow what do I say? I'm not a fan? I understand their necessity but common "I see no reason for you not to get an epidural, it'll make things a lot easier for me in case of C-section" this is what is wrong with the birth process in general. its all about whats best for the doctors not the mothers. who gives a sh*t what is best mom and baby? grrr. rant over.

Next appointments are for week 39, I hope to have delivered before then :) we'll see, the baby will come when he is good and ready!
