We’ve hit 36 weeks of pregnancy with GUBbaby! This is definitely a milestone I looked forward to because at 36 weeks we welcomed our first born, Bailey! This is also the week that kicks off twice a week appointments. My schedule this summer suddenly got hectic with GUBbaby!
Hello GUBbaby, you’ve made it to 36 weeks!
Turning 36 weeks was probably one of the most exciting weeks for me. I still remember being 36 weeks with both Bailey and Cecilia. I have birth stories to share but for now, I’ll say with Bailey it was all so unexpected especially because I was still working and my water broke at work. With Cecilia, 36 weeks was one of the longest weeks of my life. I thought for sure she’d come early too! I don’t know why I thought that. But here I am yet again hoping for an early delivery! I’m ready, we all are ready, to meet GUBbaby and find out if we have a boy or girl to join the GUB family!!!
Non- Stress Tests
We had our first NST. I’m not scheduled for them once a week until I deliver GUBbaby. This was completely new because I never did this with my past pregnancies, well, aside from emergency ones at the hospital. Marcus came with me bright and early. They walked us into a room, sat me down, put a few straps on me and there it was! GUBbaby’s heartbeat. I still get emotional listening to it. It was our first hello and still, I get so excited knowing GUBbaby is healthy and active. We also had a quick ultrasound to check the amniotic fluid. With a full bladder, GUBbaby is still swimming in tons of liquid! Oh man oh man if my water breaks it should be a big pour for sure!
Shopping for GUBbaby
Our crib still isn’t here but I’m not even worried. Our kids usually stay near me the first 3 months. Marcus was smart when he started looking into getting a bassinet or even one of those playpen- bassinet combos. But then, during a recent trip, we found this baby on clearance! You can’t beat paying $28 for a sleeper. It’s been hard to think of a nursery theme too because everything is so gender-specific. I think it’s going to be more exciting when we welcome GUBbaby and go from there. So, for now, we have all our basics covered and like I said before I’m ready to meet this baby!
