Appointment Yesterday, Appointment Tomorrow!

Appointment yesterday went real well. I got a gift bag from APW since I made it to 36 weeks. My sister was with me and we were both laughing because neither one of us had got that far in our pregnancies before! Anways, still measuring at 3 cm. And this is crazy- the other cervix is dilating too at 2.5 cm! We were all laughing about that one since really I'm 5.5 cms total! So the amniotic fluid level was even lower at this ultrasound, down from 8.1 to 6.5. I guess the normal range is 8-22, and although I'm not in the "normal" range anymore, the Dr. said it's really not that bad. They still want to check on it before the weekend starts, so I have to go in AGAIN tomorrow to check the fluid level and have a non stress test. The baby can become stressed if the level gets too low so that's the reason for the NST. Callie was measing in at 5 pounds, 9 ounces, but the tech told me that it's really not very accurate because the head measurment she got was so poor due to her position (She's very very low!) I guess that's the one they really go by for weight, so it's probably wrong. I told her I didn't mind, that anywhere in the 5 pound range was awesome to me!! My weight was back down a couple pounds, so that was nice!
On another note, Parker got to play with most of his cousins yesterday! He got to see cousin Brady and David in the morning and then cousin Sebastian in the afternoon. He was pooped! We are going to Great Grandma Stemps this afternoon too for some fun.
Cory has picked up some shifts with Mechanical Insulators again and had to be at work at 5:30 this morning!! Poor guy! I just keep looking at the clock thinking how he's been at work for two hours all ready, and I'm just getting up for the day.
Melissa's house hunt continues...check out her blog for an update on that.
Nothing else really new! I'll update tomorrow!

I am getting so excited for you! I still think it'd be funny if we have our babies on the same day!

I think I'm going to go to your sisters blog and harrass her about having a flaky real estate agent...ha ha ha :)
