34 weeks

This is the only photo I was able to take this week before klutz mode set in and I dropped my camera on the hardwood floor. Now the lens won't retract and I have to send it into the Canon service center in Illinois for a "minimum" $150 repair. Note to self--next time plan on dropping the camera before the two-year warranty expires (it expired May 24, 2007---damn!).

Roughly 6 weeks to go, give or take a few depending on how things progress. I had an appointment with the midwife last week and everything is going well. So far my appointments have been pretty uneventful, not like I am complaining!

There is a new system in place at the hospital where patients are given a user ID and password which allows you to log on to their website and view all of your medical records, set up appointments, email questions to the midwives, and look up general hospital information. I tried out their system when I got home last week and had to force myself to not click on the tab that was labeled "Labs" as I knew the results of my amniocentesis would be right there, which would essentially tell me the gender of the baby. It was so unbelievably tempting to find out that I made myself shut down the computer and go do something else. Of course I have come this far without knowing and it is no big deal to wait a little while longer.
