Yesterday, we hit 34 Weeks! Trevor and I went to the doctor in the morning, and I am happy to say that everything looks great. Knox’s heartbeat and my belly are right on track. I was back to seeing my regular doc, and she told me that studies show that Terbutaline does absolutely nothing to stop pre-term labor. It does stop pre-term contractions, though, and that’s its main purpose. She told me to take it as I need to, so I am only taking it when I get upwards of six contractions an hour, because that’s how many I am allowed according to the doctor. They moved me to every week at the doctor, thankfully, so I will be going back on the 7th. She told me I will be getting an internal next time, so we will see if anything else has changed since last week.
Now, on Monday, Trevor had the day off, so he and I made a trip to Target to pick up all the little things we still needed. Holy moly, we spent SO much money! Luckily, we had about $175 in gift cards thanks to showers (and repeat gift returns from showers) and Christmas money from family, so we didn’t spend any “real” money. We did get our swing, which was $150, but our total was $430!! Yipes! Those little items really add up. I did have to get some nursing bras, which are hard to buy when you have no idea how big your boobs will get, so I just got really stretchy ones and hope they work. We bought sheet savers, Mylicon drops, breast milk storage, organizational stuff, Infant Tylenol, items for my hospital bag, etc. As pricey as it was, I am SO glad that’s over with! I think we were there for almost two hours, so I exceeded my time-on-my-feet-limit, but I actually didn’t have a single contraction while I was there. That’s proof that shopping at Target is good for you.
