Pregnancy Update....

So I'm almost 34 weeks along now and definitely counting down the days. My blood pressure has been creeping up slowly and they have been closely monitoring it. I'm supposed to be going to the doctor every 2 weeks but the last few weeks I've been going twice a week. Last week I had to do the 24 hours urine and blood test. They said everything looked OK but I had a doctor appt. today and she wants me to repeat all those tests again this week and come back Friday. They are going to do an ultrasound while I'm there to look at how big the baby is and make sure he's growing properly because of my BP issues. I'm scheduled to have my C-section at 39 weeks which will be Oct. 19th but I don't think my doctor thinks I'll make it that long. Honestly she sounds like she's worried I won't even make it till 37 weeks. That is her goal though to be considered term.... So I have about 3 1/2 more weeks to go. Honestly with Athena she was born at 37 1/2 weeks but she only weighed 4 lbs. 9 oz. It looks like we'll be doing lab work every week until delivery just so if something was wrong we would catch it early and not so late like last time. I will keep everyone up to date on the pregnancy especially if I deliver early. Wish me luck! Good thing is we are ready for him to be here. Both his and my bag are packed. We have his carrier and playyard/bassinette for him to sleep in and plenty of clothes and diapers to get him started since I've already had my shower. I will get to go to the Kids Sale preview party tomorrow so whatever I still don't have I will get the chance to buy cheap then. Here are the things I need that hopefully I will be able to find, bouncy seat, crib, jumparoo and more premie clothes just in case he does come early.
