33 Week Check-Up
Only 6 weeks and 5 days left to go...that is of course if the baby is punctual. Today was another basic check-up but it was a little frustrating. Ella & I were a few minutes late because of EXTREMELY slow trucks on the pass and then we had to park a few blocks away because there weren't any spots in the parking lot. Of course, I was NOT happy when we finally made it to the office and spots had opened up. Just my luck. That kind of luck continued when we had to wait for over an hour for my 5-minute appointment. Fortunately, Ella was well-behaved and there were several children's books to read. I'm not sure if the wait was because we were late or because they were just backed up with clients. It was a full-house in there which is pretty unusual compared to my recent appointments. With my first pregnancy, waiting around was standard. But this pregnancy, the waiting time has usually been minimal. Anyway, the heartbeat was strong, I'm measuring properly for this stage of the pregnancy, and the nurse practicioner said it sounds like the baby has already turned upside down. I'm just hoping and praying that this one will be faced the right way when s/he decides to come out! Other than that, there isn't much to report.
