36 Weeks, 6 Days

I'm pretty much full term as of tomorrow but I can expect this little bub any time between now and the next 5 weeks.

I just found out that my Group B Strep test came back positive. I've had a fairly smooth pregnancy thus far and I guess I can expect to have a bump in the road. Since I tend to obsessively read about everything that comes up, I've already spoken with Dr. Google. Well, actually I lied. I obsessively read about it before I went in for my 36 week appointment, since I knew I'd be having the test done (and then I stalked my online Kaiser account for test results until they came in). It's pretty common and about 15-40 percent of women test positive at any given time. Also, chances of it getting passed to the baby are low - like 1 in 2-300, but is dangerous for the bub if contracted, however harmless to me. Basically, I'll get antibiotics administered before or during labor to avoid passing it to the bub. Fun fun. Oh and the test was even more awesome. I'll tell you that.

Otherwise, I've been feeling pretty good and feel like I have plenty of energy. The bub does jolt me with some actually quite painful jabs these days to the point where I actually shout out in pain! What a little monster! However, it still makes me laugh.

Oh and I finally got my grades for the term and ended up with a 3.66 GPA. For the first term of grad school after not being in school for 5 years, it's not too shabby. I'm actually looking forward to returning to school in September (I know I'm crazy).

Aside from the whole Strep B thing, I am so so happy for you,Momoly. This is definitely different from the life you lead when we met, and I'm so glad that things worked out so well for you. I'm glad we're still friends, and I hope that I get to be in your family's lives for years to come. xoxo!
