So, we hit week 32 last Friday! Which means we only have 8 weeks until we meet our sweet Wade. We absolutely cannot wait to have him in our arms.
Wade is now the size of a Florida pomelo or a Squash. He should be around 4 pounds and 16.5 inches long. He has always measured a week ahead, but we haven’t heard a true pound measurement of him since our ultrasound around 20 weeks. Since we aren’t high-risk, we just get measurements of my belly now. Those are always right on track with where we should be measuring. When I asked at our appointment last Friday, we won’t be getting another ultrasound unless there’s a growth concern, or we make it to 41 weeks. I would rather not have either of those, so I’ll be just fine with no ultrasound.
We’ve had a stressful couple of weeks these past two weeks. The day we turned 30 weeks I started having a toothache, which to make the story short resulted in a root canal the next Wednesday. We also had an OB appointment the Monday after that, and they found protein in my urine. We had to do a 24 hour urine collection to check for proteins, and that came back with protein in it as well. So, they moved our appointment up from the next Tuesday to this past Friday. At that appointment, there were no traces of protein in my urine, and everything looked fine. We are still very mindful of my blood pressure, but it is still well under the limits we are looking for. So, I believe it was a result of the antibiotics I was on for my toothache and infection, and we have kept our appointments at every two weeks.
We are very close to having Wade’s nursery finished, and I will be so glad when that day comes. This mama doesn’t like to be unprepared.
Hopefully we have an uneventful two weeks and the next update is at 34 weeks after our appointment.
