Baby Boy 32 weeks

     That's right I had my 32 week check up on Tuesday. We are getting so close to the end it is crazy! I am getting so excited to meet this little guy!

     So back to my appointment. Good news first. Baby boy FLIPPED!! That's right he is now head down! I made the doctor check 3 times when he told me. ha ha I was like are you sure? He kept telling me yes his head is right there! I just didn't believe him. Once it sunk in I was so relieved! I was really not looking forward to a c-section. We aren't still completely out of the clear, there is a chance he could flip again, but it is a very slim chance considering how far along I am.

     I have 8 weeks left but we will most likely be induced at least a week early, maybe more depending on my dilation. So I am looking at more like 6-7 weeks left. Crazy! So exciting though, I feel like this has gone so fast. Why am I being induced early? I was positive with strep-b with Sophia and so I am most likely positive with this one too. Normally it's not a big deal but my deliveries are fast and they want to be ably to get the antibiotics in before the baby comes.

     Also my blood pressure has started going up. Bummer. I was hoping we could avoid that this time. Anyway it is on the rise and if it gets too high like it did with Sophia they will induce me early also. So either way I will be really surprised if I go past 39 weeks. I have felt not great this month, a not so nice side effect of the rising blood pressure. I only gained 2 pounds this entire month and the doctor said that was kinda low, which it is for me to be 32 weeks. Another not so nice side effect of my blood pressure rising. It's not like I don't eat. I eat all the time. I guess I need to eat more?

     Anyway we are in the home stretch. I go in every two weeks now and then weekly in August! Oh SNAP! We can't wait to meet this little guy. Tyler is nervous because he is coming right when school starts but I keep telling him don't worry we have grandma's that are so excited to come stay and help. Here's to hoping the transition from 1 to 2 will be fairly smooth!

YAY! That is so exciting! Cute onsies that you made too--they are adorable! Sorry about the blood pressure part...but so glad the little guy flipped. I hope the 1 to 2 transition goes smoothly too! For some weird reason it was my hardest transition, even Clark and Cal were both great babies. Can't wait for more updates!
