33 weeks, 2 days

Matt and I went to a Dr.'s appointment today. The baby's heartbeat is a good 140 beats a minute. I have been having lots of Braxton-Hicks, but that's normal for as far along as I am. I am having pains that I didn't with Brinley. Dr. Barrong was kind enough to inform us that they get worse with each pregnancy and that it's normal...Wonderful!
This weekend my parents borrowed our van to take to Utah and I had my sister, Kami's, car. I haven't driven a stick shift in I don't know how long and Friday, after running a bagillion (is that a word?) errands, felt like I was going to go into labor. I laid down all afternoon and drank a lot of water. Saturday I went to see a friend, and got into my sister's car...then it hit me that driving a clutch uses muscles that I haven't used in a long time. No wonder I was in pain!
This Thursday we are going on a tour of the maternity ward of Sacred Heart. They have a section for special cases like ours. We are also, hopefully, meeting the photographer from http://www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org who is going to do bereavement photos for us. It's a non-profit organization. These photographers really do an amazing job!
We have our next ultrasound on November 2nd, mainly to see the position of the baby and measurements to be sure that I wouldn't have a problem delivering the baby breech.
