I had a doctor's appointment this week as well. She was measuring perfect and my doctor told me I was NOT too big! :) He asked if I was starting to feel her move alot more and I said yes, some days she never stops. But that particular morning she hadn't moved as much. He had me lay down to check the heartbeat and right as we started listening, she kicked and we see it on the outside. We all got a laugh! I asked him about the flu shot since it seems people think the flu will be bad this year. He said I did need to get a flu shot. This concerned me since I have never taken one, but he said I didn't really have a choice. I also asked whether he planned to be in the office around my due date. Since I am due December 11, I didn't want him running off on vacation. I wanted to make sure I was prepared incase he wasn't going to be there. I know there is always a chance he will not deliver me, but I wanted to know ahead of time. He gave me a pat and let me know he takes vacation after Christmas so more than likely, he would be there to deliver. If she hasn't come by December 11, I believe he will want to take her on December 14. December 11 is a Friday and he doesn't want to take her on the weekend if he doesn't have to, so December 14 would be that following Monday. After our appointment, Justin guessed that she would be born on December 3rd. I guess we will have to wait and see!
Now onto lunch...Every week I meet my old boss, Joyce, for work. She was one of the funnest people to work with and is one of the sweetest people you will EVER meet. I value our conversations and cannot wait until Hadlea can join us for our first lunch together. Joyce thought she needed a picture of my belly the other day...so here we are after lunch.
