32 weeks and OB check up

I had my 32 week appointment scheduled for tomorrow, but after yesterday's crash, CJ and I were so nervous that I rescheduled for today instead. I'm glad I did - for my peace of mind. I honestly DO think Keifer's actions and movements were slower than usual last night - but I'm not sure if that's because I spent the day lazing around, or if she had a bit of trauma from my emotions herself. Either way, things are fine. I got to see Addie, and she first measured my uterus and things are "right on" for 32 weeks, and we heard Keifer's heartbeat right away. *whew*. Then, because of the accident, Addie hooked me up to the fetal monitor for stress/distress monitoring and heartbeat/movement monitoring. Every time Keifer moved, I had to squeeze this little button. I was fascinated by the fetal monitor- all the little jagged lines going up and down and every time Keifer's heartbeat started to rise, sure enough, she would do a little moving and shaking. LOL. She was FINE. Thank God. Thank the angels who watched over us yesterday as we went sliding into the sign and ditch.

Babycenter.com tells me: By now, your baby probably weighs almost 4 pounds and is almost 17 inches long. Her toe and fingernails have grown in completely. Some babies have a head of hair already; others have only peach fuzz. Your baby is taking up a lot of space in your uterus, but those tight quarters shouldn't reduce her activity level. You may have heard that it's normal for babies to slow down later in pregnancy, but that's not true. If you notice any reduction in your baby's movements, call your healthcare provider.

For some reason, knowing Keifer has little, tiny, miniature toe nails just makes my heart swoon! I can't wait to kiss her tiny fingers and toes! *sigh*. Here are the obligatory 32 week belly pictures.

I am glad that you and Kief are both okay too!

This post is so weird for me though. The EXACT same thing happened to me EXACTLY one year ago. I was saved by a guard rail instead of a deer crossing sign and driving a black Jeep instead of a GMC. And... not pregnant... details. :)
