37 weeks is just around the corner...

I went to the doctor today hoping something was happening since last week but no change. The baby is pretty content in my big belly and isn't budging. Not dilated yet...few other things have been changing so at least something is happening. Looks like we will have an April baby...which is fine with both of us! It is starting to get uncomfortable to sleep with the rib pain and getting up to go to the bathroom all the time but other than that no complaints. I will definitely be ready in 3 weeks though! My doctor leaves for vacation next week so I get to go back on Tuesday already so we shall see if anything changes.

Oh and my Group B Strep test came back negative so that is one less thing to worry about. I am pretty thrilled that the Glucose test was good, the Group B Strep was good and I have a positive blood type...makes things a lot less complicated for which I am thankful.

For those of you expecting I encourage you to look into donating your cord blood. It's expensive to store your own but why not donate yours for free to help someone else? Thanks to Jen and my mom I looked into it and it was really easy to sign up for. Go to to check it out. Most doctors don't ever bring it up but mine has done it several times so most of them are familiar with it. I think it will become very popular over the next few years.

I'm so glad to hear that all is well! Baby Meeuwsen will be here before you know it and all this waiting will seem like nothing. Can't wait to see you guys on Sunday!
