Week 36 (and 1 day) And MIA

Sorry I have been MIA for almost a week now! Our computer completely died :(. I took it in to B.est B.uy to try and see if their G.eek S.quad could fix it again and the second they opened our tower they said that it was fried. They said that they could fix it but that it would really be cheaper to just get a whole new one. Gag. Just the expense we need right before the baby comes... Bobby thinks that he can fix it himself so we will see...

For right now we are surviving on an old laptop of Bobby's parents. At least it's something though and for that we are grateful! I kept having images of the baby coming early and having no way to email or blog! Panic inducing! It's a little on the slow side so I'm trying to catch up on commenting and reading blogs! I also haven't been able to check my email in DAYS. I'm going to try and hack my way in later today when I have had a nap and gained some more patience with all the slowness.

On to better things! I had my 36 week checkup yesterday with my OB. All went great! My blood pressure was good, I didn't gain any weight again (who can eat when the baby is taking up all the room!), and the baby's heartbeat was right on track at 135 bpm. I did have a small crying meltdown with Dr. W. during the appointment though :(. The baby had decided to nap most of yesterday morning and so was barely passing his kick counts (she likes at least 4 an hour). He had been very active for the past couple of weeks all the time so it was really alarming to me that he changed all of a sudden. Everything I have read on Dr. Google says to watch out for these kinds of changes. When the doctor went to check his heartbeat it took her a minute to find it and I started to have a panic attack. She usually puts the Doppler on my stomach and its right where she's guessing it is. By the time she finally found it I was just soo relieved that I lost it completely. She said that she would get him to move for me so she gently rubbed along his back for a minute until she got several good kicks out of him. She was very reassuring to me and later on in the afternoon after a good lunch and lots of water he got back to his usual thumping and bumping self :).

Thank God I only have 2 weeks and 5 days left until he's here!

So glad to see you back!! I'm sorry about your computer! I would be so annoyed...I get really annoyed when our internet goes a little crazy too.

Poor little guy was just tired and didn't want to move. I would have gone a little crazy too though. Sometimes I just poke my tummy or drink really cold water just to try to move Max around.

These few weeks will fly by so fast!!

Wow... sorry that I've been MIA too. You're so close and I would have had a melt-down too. You've been through so much and deserve all the happiness in the world. Can't wait to see you baby pictures and thinking of you every day for the safe arrival of your little bundle of joy. Love from Oz xoxo
