34 Weeks Pregnant
Here is a picture of me in my new Christmas pajamas that Landon bought for me at Eddie Bauer. They are really comfortable, and I like them a lot.

Today, Landon and I went to the doctor for my 34 week pregnancy exam. It was only a 10 minute appointment. My blood pressure looks great (118/70), I've gained another 3lbs. in 10 days (I've now gone from 141lbs. at pre-pregnancy to 182lbs), the baby is head-down, and its heart-rate is in the 130's. Our baby's heart-rate has decreased from the 17o's in the first trimester to the 150's in the second trimester to the 130's at this visit. This is normal, because the heart-rate gets slower the closer you get to delivery. We were given instructions today on when to call the MD when you go into labor. Basically, it says to wait until the contractions are 5 minutes apart, lasting 45 seconds in duration, and at the level of pain that you cannot talk during a contraction. Receiving these instructions with the phone number to call makes delivery-day seem so much more real--it is coming up within the next 5 weeks or so! We can't wait!
