“All My Bags Are Packed, I’m Ready To Go”

December 17, 2008 3 comments

hospital-bag3That’s right!  My hospital bag is officially packed and ready to go for my mad dash to the hospital when the time comes.  A special thanks to all my Twitter pals and their awesome packing suggestions (see right).

Some other awesome news:  My friend, Justina, whom I graduated high school with and whose baby was supposed to be due two weeks before mine, just gave birth yesterday morning to an adorable little baby boy named CJ (Charles Joseph) – 7 lbs. 8 oz. and 19.25 inches.  Justina’s labor was induced, and it sounds like she took the super-fast progression of her labor like a champ.  Congratulations to Justina and Frank on their new baby!  Check out Justina’s blog – I’m sure she’ll be posting CJ’s birth story at some point, and I’m very excited to hear all about it!  It only makes me even more excited to meet my own little Baby Lump soon!

Monday I had my 36 week appointment, and my doctor said everything is going well with Baby Lump.  She also indicated that even if I end up delivering late, she highly doubts that Baby Lump will reach the massive weight James was when he was born.  According to her estimates, Baby Lump will be a maximum of 9 lbs.  Still a big baby, but definitely nowhere near as daunting as 11 lbs!   Unfortunately though, the results from my Group B Strep test came back positive.  My doctor didn’t seem too concerned.  Apparently 10 to 20 percent of pregnant women will develop the infection, and they’re not really sure of the cause.  Basically, it means I’ll need to be injected with penicillin through an IV every four hours during my delivery.  So much for my perfectly normal pregnancy.  Oh well – things could definitely be worse!  Let’s just hope for the best and that Baby Lump isn’t the one in 4,000 babies that gets infected!
