35/35!

Today is an exciting day!!! Made it to 35 weeks, with 35 days until my due date. I am sure he will be here before then, but won't know for sure until Friday with my next u/s and OB appt. Last Saturday, Brian and I headed to Madison to get the final few things we still needed for baby's arrival. We have pretty much everything now. We ended up deciding against buying a crib bedding set. Since we hadn't planned on using the bumper anyway, plus wouldn't be using the quilt until later on, we chose to just get a breathable bumper instead. Of course, the one we bought was defective and will have to make another trip to Madison to exchange it. One of the ties was not even attached to the bumper. Tonight I am planning on getting the mobile assembled and on the crib. Last Friday, my mom came over to help finish a few things in the nursery, and we also got all of the newborn and 0-3 clothes washed! Felt so good to get that job done. Below I have included pictures of his nursery... still not 100% complete, but getting there!

34 Weeks

Yet another week has passed! Today is the first day of November, and crazy to think my baby boy will be here soon! I had another OB appt yesterday. BP is still in normal range, and little swelling. Fundal height continues to measure weeks ahead at 40.5 (was 36 two weeks ago). My OB looked over the results from my last u/s on Oct 21st, and along with the acceleration of his fundal height, she decided to schedule another u/s for Nov 11th. If Noah is still in the high range for most of his measurements, my OB said we could schedule an induction date for December 6th (39 weeks). They won't induce any earlier than that unless there is a medical emergency. He could always come earlier on his own as well. So I am thinking he will be here in about 5 weeks max!!! Eeeeeeekkk!!!! Brian and I better get going on that to-do list!
