Cam and I had our 32 week checkup today. Everything is still on schedule. I did voice my concern regarding my swollen feet and my numb right hand but my doctor said it's normal. Her only concern was my hemoglobin level. She has asked that I take iron supplements throughout the rest of my pregnancy. I guess I expected this. I've always been borderline anemic...I was just hoping the prenatal vitamins would be enough. I also asked about swimming at the Lake Cottage and traveling to the lake through July 13th. She wasn't concerned regarding the swimming or the traveling which made me happy. She did however say that she wouldn't recommend us traveling after that. My weight’s good and Cam’s heartbeat was around 150…higher than last time but still good. Now we start going to the doctor every two weeks. I can't believe how fast the past 7 months have gone by.
So this week I found myself doing something I thought I would not do…I bought a swim suite! I have to say, I feel more comfortable in my pregnancy suite than I did in my bikini last year and I think I look better too! I love it. I love my belly! You may not be hearing those words 8 weeks from now but for now…I LOVE MY BELLY!
I’m so excited for this weekend. My mom flies in from Arizona tomorrow morning. Brian’s picking her up, taking her to our house so she can rest before I get home from work. I’m taking a ½ day so I should be home around 11am. I’m so excited to see her. Although we talk every other day or so, I haven’t seen her since September! I think she’s going to be shocked when she sees my belly. I think there will probably be some tears too. She’s seen pics but it’s much different in person! It’s nice, I get to see her this weekend and then for a week after Cam’s born. Very exiting!! I’m also excited because my shower is the weekend. That means I get to see some friends and family that I haven’t seen in a while which is always nice!
Hope all is well with everyone!
