Baby Holmes seems to be doing just great in the oven! My doctor gave me 4 stars at my appointment this morning except for my cold that has been hanging on for 13 days now.....ugh. I can't complain too much though considering it is the only illness I have had this pregnancy other than the first weeks of morning sickness.
Baby H is head down, with a heartbeat today of 132bpm, which led the doctor to guess "boy". I really think this baby will be a boy too, as does my husband and pretty much anyone else we ask. So I think we will be in for a HUGE surprise if it turns out to be a girl.
My weight gain has been just wonderful this pregnancy. At nearly 36 weeks I am up just 30lbs! I cannot believe it, and sadly, now I have no excuse for gaining enormous amounts of weight in future pregnancies.
I start weekly visits to the OB now, and next week will be my first cervix check, the Group B strep swab (ugh) and a finger stick apparently. So things are getting exciting! ;)
Here is a pic of me at 35 weeks:
