~8 Weeks Left~

I went to my OB appointment on Monday. I met one of the new doctors, Dr. Smith, who was great. I think I only want to see women doctors this time. Our doctor for the twins and Reese was great, but he acts like House, and I kind of feel like I need someone a little more positive this go around. There is a level of pregnancy that only women can really understand, and we have some really great female docs in our group.

Everything was good at the appt- blood pressure, heartbeat, all that. I have to go back in a week and take the gross thick kool-aid diabetes test (I believe that is the official name). I am really hoping to pass the one hour test this time and not have to do the three hour one.

The doctor said that they will probably schedule the c-section for around the 38th week because they do not want me going into labor naturally. They want it to be very controlled so it will put the least amount of strain on Evie, and so they can have all the pediatric specialists available when she is born. They say she will have to be transferred to Egleston soon after she is born for surgery on the omphalecele, which kind of stinks, but they have amazing doctors there so I know she will be getting great care.

That would have me delivering around the 2nd week of December. That seems like very soon. This time of year flies by because we always have so much going on: flag football, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the twin’s birthday, and all the Christmas festivities. December will be here before we know it!

This Wed. night is OC night (our church) at the Corn Dawgs maze in Loganville. We have been wanting to take the boys for awhile. They have a huge maze and other fun fall activities. I know the boys will have a blast. Hopefully, I will get some good pics to post~
