Another update

Sorry this post is quite jumbled, It has been 2 weeks since I updated on the baby.

So since my last post about non-stress testing. We've had a bunch more appointments. Usually seeing 2 different doctors every week. It's a lot of time spent at appointments, but it's what we have to do for baby boy.

My last 2 non-stress tests have gone well. The one last week, just lasted a bit longer than we had hoped for. The nurse was kind of stupid though. I have a non-stress test scheduled for every Friday until baby is here, so as of now 5 more.

As of last Friday when we had our ultrasound baby boy is measuring about 4 pounds 4 ounces, so he's a bit on the small side, but we are ok with that. My fluid level is also up to around 18cm. The specialist that went over our ultrasound with us, seemed a bit cocky and like he knew it all. He even bet us a dollar that he was right. He seems to think that the babies kidney isn't Multicystic displastic, but non-existent, or shrunken.

I met with a pediatric urologist last week to discuss a plan for babies kidney after he is born. We are to have an ultrasound on his left kidney within his first two weeks of life. And then have what is known as a function test, and also a dye test that checks for back flow into his kidneys within the first month. Then we will meet withe the urologist again to discuss all the tests.

My regular OB is happy with my progress, and excited to still see me pregnant. We met with him yesterday and he said he'd be fine if baby came any time now, even though he'd like at least 2 more weeks. I'm dilated to a 2 and 70% effaced.

In other news I made it to 35 weeks, yahoo! Chase finally finished his associates degree, it's been a long process. His plan now is to get another associates in Visual Arts with a photography emphasis. We already have him registered for classes in the Fall and he's quite excited to start them. Since school has been out, we've had more time to go through things in the basement, and get things ready for Chase to have a studio here at home, and the baby to have a bedroom.
Somewhere in there we also celebrated my 27th birthday, we went and got pizza, and then came home so I could go back to bed.
Hopefully soon I'll feel like I have something important to write about. Hope everyone is enjoying their spring.

This is all important stuff. This should be what you want to remember when baby comes...all of that junk you went through to get him here is your arms for snuggling and kisses. Hang in there. We love you.
