Bakin' up my baby bumble Bee!

We had our 36 week appointment today (at 36+2). Weight is up 16 pounds total (normal weight gain for pregnancy is 25-30 pounds), belly measures perfect at 36 cm, BP is good my normal 102 over 70, and his little heart beat sounds good. My cervix is holding strong at 2-3cm (has been that since at least 31+3), however it's a bit softer at about 80% effaced. I had my last progesterone injection 14 days ago now. My OB said that recent studies show babies born at 37 weeks do much better than those born at 36. (well yeah, hehe) So I am to continue the procardia as needed for contractions until next Tuesday (haven't needed it since Dec. 23rd). Then at that point Bee is free to come!!!! DR thinks Bee will be born much sooner than the 31st, but I'm thinking he might be wrong. I am more comfortable (contraction wise) now than I have been in months! Wahooo... now I'm starting to trust in my amazing cervix.

Some pregnancy complaints include hip pain and needing to use the bathroom often. These are things that I can deal with. I'm soooo glad the heartburn hasn't been as bad as it was with Ari. My belly is getting huge and none of my shirts fit. :( I have started to pack a hospital bag! Whoa haha I'll totally over pack I bet. :P
