What's going on in there?

Baby continues to be very active.  I realized this morning (lying awake at 4:30 with insomnia and heartburn) that baby is probably not the championship synchronized swimmer I've been assuming she is and that rhythmic movement is actually hiccups.  Duh.  I'm so smart.

I've been having some random Braxton Hicks contractions - I don't think I ever had them with Joseph, but that's pretty normal.  Nothing to write home about.

My prenatal appointments this week went well.  I tested negative for group b strep - the last homebirth hurdle.  Next week I'll have my blood drawn again to see how my platelets are looking.  I'm thinking they should be pretty decent with all the yucky stuff I'm taking for it (the grosser the supplement, the more effective, right???).  Charlotte measured me at 39 weeks on Tuesday.  I'm 37 weeks today.  Lots of fluid still.  I'm starting to notice a little bit of swelling in my fingers (my fake ring fits pretty well now - and it's 2 or 2.5 sizes bigger than my real wedding set.  Eek!)  But nothing out of the ordinary.  I should probably just drink some more water.

Other than that... I'm feeling pretty awesome!  The cool weather has helped tremendously in the last few weeks.  It's not too hard being pregnant with a toddler right now!
