34 Weeks: The One Where I’m Considered Normal

by SimplySharpe on February 24, 2014

Today we had an appointment with the high-risk doctor for an ultrasound. One of the few positives of having a high-risk pregnancy is more views of your baby. I think normal/healthy pregnancies only get two ultrasounds: the dating one and an anatomy scan. I’ve had six or seven. Today was actually my last one, as I am now considered a normal or “perfectly healthy” pregnancy as they put it. YAY BABY SHARPE!

It was pretty exciting to get this news today, and even more so that it was first shared with us by the ultrasound tech I formerly referred to as, The Grim Reaper.  She was the one who did our scans for the two losses, and I had a complete panic attack when she walked in the room this morning. I haven’t had her for a scan this whole pregnancy. I saw her face and started to cry. When she was still smiling and talking about how cute and fast our little boy was, I knew today would be different. It was such an amazing moment to be able to see this lady in another light. It was even more amazing to know that I’m finally considered “normal” at least when it comes to high-risk doctors and this pregnancy.

And now for some monotony:

Simply Sharpe 34 Weeks

How far along? 34 weeks

Maternity clothes? Yes. It’s finally starting to warm up a little in Atlanta which means more comfy clothes like maxi skirts and dresses.

Stretch marks? Yawn.

Sleep? It could be better.

Best moment this week? Where to start? The awesome people I work with gave me a baby shower last Tuesday.

We took the hospital tour, which was very informative, and I was pleased to find out my delivery room will look nothing like the scene from Friends where Rachel has to share a room with everyone delivering before her. I had another shower on Sunday with some of the most amazing ladies I know, and then today I got discharged from the high-risk doctor. {In Chandler’s voice} Could this be a better week?!

Miss anything? Nothing worth mentioning.

Movement? He’s been super squirmy lately, and as it turns out, I was right that I was starting to feel his feet by my ribs. This baby is head down and ready to meet us.

Food cravings? For the love of turkey sammiches — this questions makes me hungry!!!

Nausea? Nope.

Started showing yet? I think we’re beyond this question.

Labor signs? Thankfully, no.

Belly button in or out? In and disappearing daily.

Happy or moody? So happy playing the Pharrell song on loop.

Looking forward to? Getting all the cute baby stuff from my showers organized and washed. My friends were so thoughtful in their baby gifts. I’m a lucky girl.
