37 weeks

Tuesday I had my 37 week appointment!
Everything went well, baby's heartbeat was 164, and I'm still measuring a week ahead with the tape. No big, Deb said to expect a bigger baby, around 9 lbs, which is what I was expecting anyway! I'm also GBS +, which is a mandatory 48 hour stay after birth. I was pretty bummed about this, I hate hospitals and spending unnecessary time there isn't my favorite!
I'm not super thrilled with my weight gain, but know baby is getting all it needs from me right now!
It's hard to believe I'm 37 weeks and technically the baby can come at any time!! Holy!
Probably I should pack my bag or something, no? Procrastination at its finest!
Still unsettled on a girl name, at this point I'm giving up, and just waiting until we meet the baby.
We finish this long houred rotation on Tuesday, I say we because it effects me too. While I'm not putting in 12-18 hour shifts at the hospital, I am putting in 12-18 hour shifts at home. (I could never be a single mom, I have mad props to those of you that are or have been! <3) Barry will also turn the big 3-0 on Tuesday!! We've given Four strict instructions to stay put until at least 5 o'clock on the 16th, so Barry will be able to take some time off. Still gunning for the 30th! :)
