31-37 weeks with Baby #3

It's been a while since I did a baby update. I only have a few weeks left and they are flying by.

At 31 weeks I had gained 23 pounds. Babies heart rate was 160 bpm. Everything looked good!

32 weeks

33 weeks

At my 36 week appointment I was up 26 lbs. Babies heart was 154 bpm. Everything still going good. Just very hard time falling asleep at night.

37 weeks started my every week appointments. I'm up 28 lbs. Babies heart rate was lower at 132 bpm but still good. I'm also dilated 1 cm and 50% effaced.  I've had random contractions almost daily, but nothing crazy.

Could be tomorrow or could still be another 5 weeks.
