week twenty nine
i counted my stockpile of diapers that i couponed and i have over 2,000 from newborn to size 3 and some size 4's even. i think it's safe to say that i'm officially putting a stop to buying them until after baby comes. i tallied up the amount too and spent just around $200 for them all and numerous packages of wipes. impressed myself.
i met with the fetal specialist again this week and was told now that i have to come in on a weekly basis to monitor baby's blood and oxygen flow and watch muscle movements. baby is still measuring small (in 9th percentile) but everything seems to be "normal" inside. he also mentioned that if at any time during these weekly visits he sees any concerns, i could be sent down to labor & delivery right then and there. now that's a scary thought, but this momma is packed and ready to go. i just have to put the bags in the car and buckle the car seat into the vehicles. but hoping baby continues to be okay inside instead of out and that they keep on growing.
at night baby rocks out to "twinkle twinkle little rockstar" pandora station on the belly buds and gets quality time with daddy listening to his story recordings. baby has become more active and it's so fun (but so weird) to see them moving around. makes me wonder just what exactly they are doing in there. ha ha
i also started packing for next week's vacation trip to Texas, hello warmer weather. at least i hope so! it will be good to take a couple days off and spend some extra time with the husband.
