36 Weeks

Current mood: ecstatic

Well, I won't be having the baby this weekend. I went to the Dr. yesterday and I asked her to do an internal exam (I never thought I would want one of those!!) She said that my cervix was closed up but the good news is that the baby is head down. Hopefully that means I won't have to worry about him being breech when the time comes to deliver him into this world. I really hope that he comes in the next 2 or 3 weeks! Matt has to go to Nashville the last week of August and he won't be able to go if the baby hasn't come yet.

I can't wait until I can post pictures of my little boy on here for you all to see!

I need to clean the house and I don't want to....come on nesting instinct!! I need you!

35 weeks and 35 days left

Current mood: excited

I am getting really excited! I packed my hospital bag over the weekend and put the car seat in the car I was kind of scared to pack my bag, it seemed too early. I thought that if I packed my bag I would go into labor or something.

The ladies at work are giving me a baby shower today and I am so excited! I get presents and I get to eat pizza! I don't know which I am more excited about ; ) I am having another shower on Sunday that ladies at my church are giving. I am going to have a lot of thank you cards to write next week!

34 weeks and counting

Well, Thursday was 34 weeks and it seems like time is dragging on. I want August to get here! I can't sleep good because I can't get comfortable and I wake up every hour to go to the bathroom and I wake up a couple times with heartburn or acid reflux (Tums are like candy lately). This must be nature's way of getting you ready to wake up several times a night to tend to the baby.

I had to leave work one day last week because I was tired. I went home and slept for about 3 hours and came back to work. My boss is so nice! Of course I can't afford to do that every week. less hours means smaller paycheck.

I am having two baby showers this week and I am very excited! It's just one more sign that the day is getting closer.

I had a Dr. appt on Friday (I start going every week now) and I gained 8 pounds in 2 weeks! The Dr. said that it was probably mostly fluid. I hope so!!! I hope that when I go this Friday I will weigh the same or less. I also had an internal exam Friday....very fun. His only comment was "nice and tight" gee, thanks.

32 and 33 Weeks

49 days to go I cant believe that I am going to have a baby next month!

I am trying to get everything in order for after the baby comes, especially since I feel more helpless every day. I sometimes feel like I cant do anything because Im so awkward with this huge belly. I measured my waist last night and it was a slender 42.5 inches! I think it was like 29 inches when I got pregnant.

I got my insurance forms to fill out when the baby gets here so that I can add him to my policy. My insurance premiums are going to go from $25 a week to $94 a week! Yikes!

I am taking my childbirth class on Saturday and I am looking forward to it. I hope to learn a lot.

Well, I think that this is that part of pregnancy when it starts being a pain and you just cant wait to get the baby out! Of course, I want to wait until 40 weeks I just want it to get here fast!
