I had my 31 week appt today. Everything is looking good so far. I will start having u/s every 2 weeks starting next week to keep an eye on her fluid and growth. I also got my H1N1 shot. I was lucky that I went in today and was able to get it.
My irritations are that I cannot find a shot for Noah. His dr is still waiting on his shipment. In the meantime, our county is holding a clinic, but when I called to ask how they were going to verify that people are telling the truth about their child actually being high risk, I was basically told that I should wait to get it at my dr. This one, it seems, is really being marketed to those without insurance. Why is my child less important just b/c I pay out the rear end to have really awful insurance? Why are my tax dollars going to pay for a bunch of kids that may or may not be high risk to get the shot, while I have to wait? And when Noah's shot comes in, it won't be free. I will pay $25 to get it, although I would pay any amount of money to keep my son healthy. On the same note, I have heard that the Obama girls have received their shots. So glad that my child who has asthma that was so severe that he had to be pulled out of daycare has to sit and wait, while others go ahead of him. If they would have let me, I would have given my shot to Noah. Sorry to vent, but I get so frustrated when my son's health is put in jeopardy.

Noah went to his second Shrine Circus yesterday. He was so excited all day, that he asked me about the circus all day long (next time I am not mentioning it until we pull up in the parking lot!). We got there and headed up to my dad's group room. He was very excited to see his Granna and Gramps (especially when Gramps had on his funny hat and then when he put on his funny costume). He got a special surprise when his Uncle Matt showed up. Noah was so excited and was running all around yelling Matt's name. After we ate, Noah got a toy from Gramps. This was the highlight of his evening. He slept with the toy last night! We watched the circus for about an hour and a half, before we had to go (way past Noah's bed time). Noah loved it, especially the horses (or neigh neighs in Noah speech) and elephants. He was so tired and ready to leave, but in the car on the way home every once in a while he would say "more circus." He can't wait to go back. Here are a few pictures. I forgot I had my camera, so I didn't take as many as I would have liked.

I had an ultrasound this morning, because he could not see the heart well last time. We saw the four chambers beating away. We also confirmed again that it was a girl, although I don't know how he could tell! She is still breech. She is measuring right on track, except her head is a little big! But nothing to worry about. The fluid around her is good. Noah loved seeing her on the screen. Then we we got out, he took the pictures and pointed right to her face and said baby. I also had to get my blood drawn. Noah was very upset that I had a boo boo and gave me many kisses! After the appt. we went out with my parents to Target and then to lunch. Noah loved seeing his Granna and Gramps, and he was not happy when they had to leave! I start seeing the dr every two weeks now. Time is flying!

I went to the dr today, and everything is looking like it should. What a relief! By this point last time my ankles and feet were so swollen I could not bend them and Noah was measuring small. This little one is right on track. I go back on Thursday for a few more tests to make sure that my thyroid and glucose are in check and to see my little girl again on a sono. They have to check her heart and the fluid and make sure everything is still going well. Then I start going every 2 weeks! Time is flying by! I can't believe that Maddie will be here so soon.
