We had another appointment on Thursday. She checked position of the baby and it appeared to be in optimal position =] Let's hope it stays there! We had all the regular checks, plus the Group B Strep screen at this visit. I think we'll find out the results of that on Wednesday when I go for my next visit. If you test positive for Group B Strep, they administer antibiotics during labor to ensure you don't pass it on to your baby. Stats vary, but roughly 25% of women are positive for Group B Strep but do not manifest symptoms, which is why the test is done. If you have it and don't know it, 98-99% of the time it won't be passed on to your baby anyway, but because of the side effects if you were to pass it on, they take the precaution of administering the antibiotics for that 1-2% chance.
I posted last time that I thought my picture made me look even bigger than I was. Well, now I am pretty sure I am huge and the pictures are accurate. I ran into a doorway yesterday because I forgot how big my stomach was. Oops. Lucas and I have fun watching the baby squirm around in there. It has a pretty powerful kick. Lucas is hoping for a soccer player.
We got our car seat over the weekend. We are going to try and get it installed in the car next weekend. The baby's room is also nearly ready. We need to clear out the building/painting supplies and vacuum, then we can put up a picture. We are going to try and get a rug this week, also. Luckily, I don't have to work this week because schools are out for Thanksgiving break, so I can get to work on some of the final projects!
To close, some pictures of my giant belly. I took them myself today, since NASA doesn't get Thanksgiving break and Lucas had to work...
I can even see your belly button popping out! Happy Thanksgiving; can’t wait to meet baby Ward soon…even if it is just over the internet.
