Jug O' Pee

This may be TMI but i just had to post. As my pregnancy comes near a close, I find all these weird things happening. Like my doctor thought i might be showing signs of Preeclampsia, so for 24 hours i had to collect my urine and put in a big jug AND keep it refrigerated. I was tempted to write over the label and put Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice (i didn't!) But everything is now fine, no preeclampsia here. So that worry is over. They did an ultrasound on Wednesday and i have a BIG ol' baby growing in me!!! 7lbs and i'm only 36 weeks. If i go to my due date (which my doctor is predicting i will) I could have a 9 pounder! whoo whee! He has a full head of hair and is really long. Just like his mom! Well I was at one time. When i was born i was 21 inches long which is big for a baby. I only grew to be 5'2" though. And all my super model hopes were dashed. And on top of all that my baby's kidney is a tad big, and so they want to do a follow-up with a Pediatric Urologist at the Children's Hospital. The big concern is that the little guy could get a bladder infection after he is born. So more testing... So i have been to some form of doctor everyday since Tuesday. And for someone who NEVER has to go to the doctor this is getting a little old. Better to be safe than sorry I guess. And if my big ol' baby is doing okay, then so am I! BTW, if you do come over to my house ever and I offer you orange juice, I promise it will only be OJ! :) Have a great weekend! I will be sleeping through most of it. I just can't keep my eyes open these days. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Wow! A new discovery every day! When I was pregnant and the boys were babies we were always at the doctor...it really does get old! Now we hardly ever go...just once a year for their checkup unless they get sick which they haven't this winter! It'll be fun to see how big your baby boy is! Caleb was 7 lbs. 5 ounces and 21.5 inches long at 36 weeks and I always wondered how big he would've been if I had gone full term.
