Week 36 Doctors Appointment Update

25 Mar

Hey guys!

I’m *trying* to post about his pregnancy as a way to look back on it once the little guy is in my arms.  I love rereading all of Cameryn’s pregnancy blogs and hope I will enjoy reading the few I did with baby boy.

Yesterday I turned 36 weeks and had my first exam at the doctor’s office to see if I was making any progress at all towards having this little baby.

Well, it looks like history might be repeating itself as at exactly 36 weeks I am already 2-3 cm dilated.  This time the doctor didn’t put me on bed rest but did tell me to take it really easy as she wants this boy to stay put for as long as possible.  She said it is more important for boys to stay put for as long as possible. 

I have decided to not workout this week as I don’t want little boy to come until at least next week.  I talked with my mom who lives in Minnesota and she booked a flight out here for Saturday.  So I would love to not deliver this little man until she arrives.  We need her here so she can watch Cameryn and Quincy. 

I reread through Cameryn’s updates and from when I was 3cm dilated I had her five days later.  That would put me at having him very soon.  The doctor said she would be surprised if I was pregnant for another week and a half to two weeks. 

I honestly can’t believe it is almost go time!  I feel like I was just wanted to have a second baby and now he is almost here!

Well that’s it for me today!  I have two clients to train today and think today will be the last day as I want to make sure to rest and keep off my feet as much as possible.

I’ll keep you all updated on any progress and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed little boy stays put for at least one more week!

    So exciting! I’m 38 weeks, but it doesn’t look like this little one plans on going anywhere soon!

    Wow! Good luck! I am going back to the midwife this afternoon cause my rib pain is SO bad.. I’m wondering if the baby is transverse or something???

    My friend Laura is a nurse and said they call the “wimpy white boys” cause they need to stay in the longest! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed he stays put till 37! I’m hoping to make it that far also.. Hudson came at 38 weeks last time and weighed 5 lb 9oz

    Random question but I know you make a lot of smoothies and give them to C. What protein powder do u like? I’ve heard to stay away from whey protein while pregnant and nursing?
    I plan on trying to nurse this baby… Did u have any issues with using powder in smoothies while nursing?

    Hope u are felling good and have baby soon!

      Hi Katie! I use Sun Warrior brown rice protein. I really like the vanilla flavor but also also have the chocolate flavor on hand too. It is a much more chalky flavor but I like it better! Hope this helps! How are you feeling? Getting close to your due date?

        Thanks I will have to try that powder! Congrats on your little boy.. He is too cute and I love the name.

        Hayes is due June 2nd but we are planning to induce at 39 weeks because of my severe Hellp syndrome history… So probably may 23rd ! Not too far away but feels like forever 🙂

    Unlike the harder typical notion of loans, firms that offer loans
    online give their customers a opportunity to recuperate from outstanding debts by getting
    them to borrow only a minimal level of cash.
