Things have been very busy lately. For the past 2 days we have been camped out at my parents house since the bad storms rolled through Monday and knocked out our power. Almost 9 month prego mommy and the old man (Gibson) couldn't take the heat so we packed up and headed out. It was nice hanging with my daddy for a few days while my mom was out of town. It would have been nice if she was home, but we got to keep dad company. We were about to go to bed last nigth when a friend down the street messages me that the power had finally returned, but we decided to get 1 more good night in the king sized bed before heading home. After returning home today I had to put away all of the food we had been keeping at the parents house to keep it from going bad and I still ahve to finish clening my kitchen. I thought it would be a great idea to clean out soem cabinets while the lights were out which only ended in me getting too hot and sent me packing to the parents house. Now that we are home I can finish getting the house purged, reorganized, and cleaned.
Today I had my 34 week checkup and everything and everyone are measuring perfectly. I also talked with my doctor about my concerns about being induced. I have seen so many people whose doctors have talked about inducing them even before their due dates and every single one of them never progressed and ended up having to have a c-section. She made me feel much better because she doesn't believe in inducing unless I get to 41 weeks or it is medically necessary. I feel like people get scared to question or ask their doctor about stuff which can end in unnecessary medical interventions. I am ok with being uncomfortable for a week or 2 longer. If it comes down to it I am totally ok with having a c-section, but if I can give my baby the time she needs to naturally get here then so be it. I have 1 more visit in 2 weeks and then we will start the visit every week. That means we are getting so close to the end and I am so ready for my girl to get here.
