- I didn't get my first internal (that will be tomorrow)
- I'm going to the doctor every week now
- The Group B Strep test was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be
- Carver weighs about 5.5lbs and we're pretty sure is head down (we'll know better tomorrow)
- The dr let us go to Ellensburg for the weekend to be at Jake's graduation party and see the boys one last time before they go to Malibu
- I asked what his policy is on episiotomies and he said that unless it's absolutely necessary, or I'm tearing, he doesn't do them.
It was my last trip anywhere until after monkey comes so that was sad. I'm pretty much homebound until I deliver now. I can go up to an hour away but I'm not too comfortable going many places by myself.
We finally bought a portable air conditioner a couple nights ago. We've been talking about it and were definitely planning on getting one before monkey comes so it worked out. It definitely helps keep the house cooler. :)
Chris has been helping Kim and Greg with their front lawn. He's installing a sprinkler system for them and 'advising' them on how to go about doing things. So Kim said that she wanted to get us a couple big things off of our registry to thank us. We tried to turn her down but she insisted. So Kim and I went to Babies R Us and she got us a swing, the boppy and slipcover, and the mobile for the crib! I had a couple coupons so we used those and we walked out of there spending less than we expected! Thanks Kim!!!!
