Baby Update

We went to the Doctor today- all is well. It was a super quick check up: measure the belly (my stomach is the right size) and listen to the baby’s heartbeat. When the doctor held the sonogram monitor to my stomach, Janae tried to push away the wand and kick the doctor. Like she does every time. (Only now, she’s putting some muscle behind those kicks– ouch!) Already, we see a little personality coming out– this girl doesn’t like to be poked or bothered, and she’ll let you know it! (Just like a first born daughter ought to. Ian, are you scared yet?) 🙂

The best news from the appointment today is that we can finally take a deep breath after the chicken pox epidemic at my school. After the county Department of Health got involved and a new student was diagnosed with the chicken pox daily (not exaggerating: 15% of the school came down with the chicken pox– total infestation!), there was plenty of worry about whether my continued teaching would put Janae at risk. After taking off some time from work, the doctor says that I seem to be doing fine (no more itchy rash, hallelujah!), and baby is doing great as well. As long as no more students pass around childhood diseases for the rest of the school year (5 more days… Yahoo!), we should be in good shape!

So, all in all, a good check up! I can’t believe how fast this whole pregnancy is going. It seriously feels like we found out just a month or so ago, and we’re at 35 weeks already. The craziest part for me, though, is thinking that babies are considered to be full term anywhere between 36 – 40 weeks. I can’t quite wrap my brain around thinking that Janae could potentially join us next week!

Here’s hoping that Jeff and I can wrap our brains around it enough to finish painting La Jungla soon. 🙂
