Hey hey! How are you guys doing this afternoon? I’m happy to be checking in today after a very normal 36-week prenatal appointment. Hooray!
I arrived at my appointment this morning matching my Bubba Keg (I told you it doesn’t leave my side) and waited for about 30 minutes before my doctor was ready to see me. We listened to the heartbeat and it sounded great (127 bpm) and then my belly was measured. I’m still measuring about three weeks behind (up a week from my last appointment though!).
Before it was time to go, my doctor did the group B strep test (I’ll have my results in a few days) and also checked my cervix. She said I was not dilated at all (totally normal for 36 weeks) and she could definitely feel our little guy’s head! From here on out, I’ll be heading to the doctor every week until our baby boy decides to make his debut.
After my appointment, I grabbed a quick lunch from Earth Fare.
I am loving anything cold and crisp lately, so spring rolls called to me and I grabbed a shrimp and avocado roll to eat along with a chocolate chip cookie from the bakery.
Let’s see… What else has been going on here since the weekend aside from the usual work business? (I’m still working at the gym but had to give up most of my classes that require me to do the workout with the class at this point.)
Last night we had a pretty darn delicious dinner! I threw together a simple dish that included sweet potato gnocchi, bacon and Brussels sprouts.
It was so easy to prepare and we loved the combination of flavors. And if you have tips for getting bacon grease out of clothing, I’m all ears. The bump is currently a landing board for all crumbs and stains.
Our baby isn’t even here yet and he’s already taking over our house! With the exception of the baby’s toys, Sadie is highly unamused by all of our baby’s gear. The stroller, in particular, totally freaks her out.
And before we settled in for some quality couch time after dinner, my sweet tooth started raging so I experimented in the kitchen a bit and made a batch of “dessert” popcorn by tossing air-popped popcorn in coconut oil, honey, brown sugar and unsweetened coconut flakes.
It was delicious and I’m sure I’ll be making something similar again soon. I’ll try to take notes next time to share it with you guys because I think my fellow coconut lovers out there would really enjoy it!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your Tuesday. I’ll see ya in the morning!
