35 Weeks!

My doctor's visit went well today! Ruthie is doing well. Her heartbeat is good. I'm contracting (although I don't really feel any pain yet!!) and my sugars were good!! I am, however, measuring big (a problem common with gestational diabetes) so next week I go for another sonogram to see how big she is. I'm looking forward to seeing her again! There is nothing better than seeing my sweet pea on sonogram. And, we can put away my newest "nightmare" that she is really a he (we sure will have a lot of pink to replace !!) We will know more next week regarding delivery (whether they want to do a c-section or if they'll just induce labor early). I will keep you posted. Until then, enjoy what the baby center says about babies at 35 weeks gestation!

"Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 pounds plus. Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight."
