Taking her time...

Yesterday was our weekly BPP test. Gabriele was being a little stubborn today. She passed her movement. flexibility, and fluid portion right away, but we could not get her to practice breathing for any longer than 4-5 seconds. In order for her to pass she must practice for at least 30 seconds. Since she would not do it I had to get hooked up to the fetal monitor. It was actually very relaxing though, Daddy and I got a quick cat nap in while we waited during the test. So this week since we had to do all five test she got a 8 out of 10, which is still passing so we are go to go for another week. Here is a quick look of me at this point. I am becoming very uncomfortable. I hate to say I am miserable at this point because I know the best is yet to come. From beginning to now I am definitely noticing a lot more pain, mostly my back and some contractions... it's exciting though cause it means everyday we get closer to seeing our baby girl.
