week 29 update

Hello, everyone! I hope this week is going well for you. I had my 29w appointment on Monday.

I lost 0.4 lb during the past 2 weeks. Ugh. Not a large amount, but I am trying to gain so I am disappointed. The MFM did not say anything about it. Monkey's hb was in the 160s. I asked the MFM his opinion on the pg support belt. He said it might or might not help and it wouldn't hurt. I've worn it for two days now and have not had any ligament pain. Yippee! I hope it stays like that.

I also had my first baby shower that day. DH was with me, helping to open gifts. We received a lot of nice things. Made me laugh how only two of the presents were from our registry. Just goes to show you that it is true what they say about people getting what they want instead. Oh, well.

Yesterday we toured the maternity ward at the hospital where I will deliver. It was nice to see it and learn more about what happens once you show up in labor. They told us to go to the ER instead of the floor directly. I would not have known that.

My goal for the weekend is to get bags packed. When did or will you do this?
