Caryn...lol, my midwife pointed out today that this baby weighs more now than my other two children did combined at birth. And when he's born he'll be 3 times the size of my largest birth weight child. Amazing to think!

Oh, and I feel like a bus! LOL

Woohoo! Washing clothes! That little man is going to be sitting in his little infant carrier in your backseat riding home for the very first time before you can blink! I'm so happy for you!

Joni,

Congrats on a great appt! I just can't believe you're at 33 weeks! You're almost there, how exciting. I'm looking forward to hearing about Ashtyn's arrival.

BTW, the cartoon is so funny! That could be my dog. What a great artist too!

Another great doctor's appointment today! BP, urine dip, and everything else was perfect. We are now doing BPPs or NSTs (Biophysical Profiles/Non Stress Tests) every week. He passed with flying colors. During the NST, and we needed to see his heart rate increase 15 beats per minute above his baseline at least two times while I was hooked up to the monitor. He was sleepy at first so the midwife doing the test gave him a little zap through my belly with an artificial larynx (you know those instruments that people hold up to their throat so they can talk after they've lost their voicebox due to cancer...think anti smoking commercials). For some reason it just really annoys babies and they get their heart rate going. Worked like a charm!

I can't believe I have only 3 more doctor's appointments left before we meet Ashtyn! He is probably creeping up to 5 lbs. by now. I only have maybe two shirts that cover my huge belly anymore...


p.s. I updated my blog today and put up a cute cartoon starring our dog my 13 year old drew if anyone wants to see! [:)] http://slfsoft.com/baby
