Yesterday I had my 36 week appointment with one of the midwives at my practice, and it went great! I had to have the Strep B test. I didn’t have it with the boys, so hopefully I don’t with this pregnancy either! Everything looked great–they don’t do cervical checks until your due date (which is fine with me!), so I have no idea what’s going on down there. I have been have more uncomfortable Braxton Hicks contractions lately though. 🙁
We had a chance to talk for a while about pregnancy and the labor and delivery process at Beth Israel Deaconess Plymouth (formerly Jordan). I had a few questions, since I will be giving birth without the drugs this time. 🙂 I was very happy with all of the answers to my questions, and I am sure that this birthing experience will be quite a bit different from the last two.
In other news, my almost six-year old started lacrosse yesterday. He was so excited to start playing that we were hoping it lived up to his expectations. Our lacrosse organization here has an instructional league for pre-K and kindergarten, and I can’t believe how many little boys showed up! I also couldn’t believe how many of them had obviously played before! 😉 J had fun, although the 5:30-6:30 practice time is a little hard after a full day of kindergarten. He looked so cute all suited up in his gear (see pic).
Nursery wise, things are moving along well–the floors will be finished by tomorrow. Then we will finish painting this weekend. I am so happy that it’s going to be done in time for baby’s arrival (fingers crossed!). The floors look gorgeous now that the 5 layers of paint have been stripped off of them. They are wide and so rich in color–so glad we decided to refinish them. Now I just want to do all the floors in the rest of the house!
