I had my 34 week check up today and things are looking good for the most part. Hazel is looking healthy so that is good. The two concerns my doctor is having is 1. the placenta is starting to calcify which can cause problems with blood supply if it gets out of hand and 2. I have not gained any weight in the last month (fine by me but not necessarily good for the baby). I have not had much of an appetite since I have been experiencing sciatica pain so maybe that's all there is to it. Anyway, I have another check up in 2 weeks and Dr. Heal will determine at that time if I will need to be induced early. As long as she gains weight in the next two weeks regardless of whether I do we should be fine :)

I just got back from the Doctor and Hazel is looking great. She is about 3.5 lbs and is in the head down position. Now I just need to keep her where she is at a little longer. Dr. Heal said as long as I stay off my feet we should be fine. Matt has been really helpful which allows me to take it easy and focus on being an incubator. My contractions are manageable as long as I am not on my feet for prolonged periods of time. No more strolls around the mall for a while.
