August 26, 2010


Well what a week. I felt kind of uncomfortable all week but today I am feeling much better. I am so ready for our baby to get here and I don't know how many times I can say it. I just hope he comes sooner than later. Well this week makes week 37. We had a doctors appointment on Wednesday and no progress. Doc says he will probably go full term but that he is measuring two weeks early. I have a feeling this is going to be a big baby. We will see soon enough. It was nice to hear his heart beat and know that he is doing well, and that my blood pressure is doing well. Had to do some cultures and blood work all normal stuff that pregnant women have to do. I think I jump to conclusions and worry about things before they become an issue. I am so worried about trying to deliver a large baby naturally. I want the doc to induce but I realize that he may not be willing to do that. The thing is I don't really know how big he is and if he is even ready to come out. Well obviously he isn't ready to come out or he would already be here. I have one more day with the kiddo's. I am kind of sad about that because I will miss having the kids around. However, I have like a week to two weeks of house cleaning to do to get ready for this little man. We really are already ready for him, this is really just stuff to keep me busy. I am sure these last couple of weeks are going to feel like an eternity, it already does.

Well even though the doctor never changed our actual due date I am just saying that we have four weeks left. He is still measuring a week early. I don't have any kids today so I am going to run around and get some stuff done.

Eric was out of town from last Thursday to this past Tuesday. I went to Austin to visit my Grandmother, step mom and dad. Did all the last bit of shopping that I needed to do for the baby. Got a lot of nice stuff. Now I am just ready to have Owen here.

I am beginning to get miserable. I am hot, big, a little uncomfortable, and just not content until he gets here. I realized that the doctor will probably not induce even if Owen is really big. I have been watching True Baby Stories and it is about the birth part of pregnancy. I am a little nervous to have a natural birth. I probably should not be watching these shows because they make me cry and want the baby to be here even faster.

We have our last class this weekend. Eric should love it because it is a breast feeding class. Well after this it is just waiting for baby to come.

My mother, sister, and sisters boyfriend came to visit this past weekend. It was so nice to see all of them. I miss getting to hang with my mom and sister. I felt like we all got along very well. I didn't feel stressed or anything. Just had fun.

We are five weeks and three days away from my due date. I am so excited. We had our last baby shower this past weekend. My mother and sister came down and we had a great time. My sister did an amazing job setting up the baby shower and decorating. I greatly appreciate Terri, Alyssa, Amanda, Charlsie, and Molly who also helped with the baby shower. The house was beautifully decorated, great cake, fun games, and great food. I was so happy to have my family and friends there to share in this wonderful time in my life.

We have gotten most of our stuff, definitely all of our big items. I have some coupons so the rest will be taken care of hopefully before Owen gets here. I spent yesterday and today sterilizing and washing everything. I have packed my bag and Owens bag. Eric is on his own. Just kidding I will get him a bag together. Eric is leaving for like five days so I want all bags ready in case I have to go by myself to the hospital. I am sure that Owen will hold out while daddy is gone but it is ok to be careful.

We have our next doctors appointment on Wednesday and our third class. Basically how to take care of a newborn. This will be a good class for Eric and myself.

August 5, 2010


Today I am officially 34 weeks pregnant. Which means 6 weeks left until little Owen gets here. I have my last baby shower this weekend. I am really excited about the shower. My mom and sister are coming down tomorrow which is great I can't wait. I have a tone of cleaning to do before they get here. I keep trying to clean but with all the kiddos here I can't seem to keep things clean. I have become seriously emotional in the last two weeks. Every little thing seems to be the biggest deal. I had to deal with AT&T this morning. Two hours on the phone to figure out a bill. Transfered about five times and dropped at least twice. I love phone, Internet, and tv companies just kidding. I think that I am going to try to take some maternity pictures this weekend while my family is down. Owen has been moving around like a crazy little man. Eric and I just sat and watched my belly for like 10 minutes last night while Owen worked it out. He is starting to wake up earlier in the morning which is good because he was a night mover and sleep in till 10 am. I was hoping that he would change so that we would have a little easier time with the night sleeping. I had my doctors appointment last week on Wednesday. All is going well and the doctor doesn't think that Owen will be early. We have our next doctor appointment on Wednesday. Eric leaves town on Thursday unless something has changed with my dilation. Last weekend we had our car seat class. It was a really great class. We actually learned a lot. We have our next class on Wednesday night. This class will be great because it is what to expect with a newborn. This means Eric will get to learn how to change diapers.
