My 36 week check-up was today. I weighed (still holding strong at 30 pound weight gain- thankful it didn't go up), got pricked, and was sent on my merry way to wait for my Doc. (Btw, have I mentioned my Doc's name is Doctor Harper? Harper is not named after my Doc; however, he said he's going to take some credit for it. Ha!) I had the Group B Strep test done today (blah) and then Dr. Harper "checked" me. I knew this was going to happen today, and have been dreading it. I'm not dilated (not shocking- I was only one centimeter dilated when I went into the hospital to have Aaron; I was contracting but not dilating), and I was informed (shocker- not really) that there's just not a lot of room for you know, birthing a second child. I won't go into details as the readers that I do have I want to come back, but my birthing experience with Aaron kinda set the path for future deliver(ies). After a lot of discussion with my Doc, we made the decision to deliver baby girl via c section. I am totally okay with this. In fact, I've been somewhat preparing myself for this since I delivered Aaron. I'm honestly happy with this decision. They're supposed to call me tomorrow to schedule the surgery, and I'll be at least 39 weeks when I deliver unless she decides to make her appearance sooner. So, that's where we're at. Harper Elizabeth could be here in as little as 3 weeks from today- eeeekkk!!! I just can't wait to see her!
In other random news, I am DYING to see the new Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie, Don Jon. I've been pretty much obsessed with him since his SNL striptease. The movie doesn't come out until September 27th, so I highly doubt I'll be seeing it in theaters, but rest assured, I will be snatching it up as soon as it hits Redbox, y'all! Here's the trailer:
Have a good night!
