Still waiting...

For those of you wondering... no baby yet!  Our due date was yesterday, but apparently Trey doesn't care;-)  I have another doctor's appointment on Friday morning and if he hasn't come by then, hopefully we'll get some more info! 

In the meantime, a friend of ours from church just had a cute little boy named Elliott!  We didn't know if she would be having a girl or boy, so we're pleased its a boy so that Trey has a friend to play with in our church plant!

No changes...

Hi Everyone!  Just a quick update... I had a doctor's appointment today and everything is still status quo.  I was very frustrated with this, but she reassured me that even if I had dilated alot that it wouldn't have necessarily meant anything.  So it's just a wait and see game now! 

They do want me to get the H1N1 shot, which is available today, tomorrow and Saturday for the pregnant women only at the office.  They are really pushing it and apparently keeping a list of the preggo women who do and don't.  I'm signed up to go tomorrow, but not entirely sure yet if I will.  At this point, I don't know if I would pass much immunity on to the baby anyways.  The doctor told me that it was mostly for my safety and that the death rate is 6% for pregnant women who get H1N1.  I don't know if I believe that statistic either!  Thankfully, I'm getting some second opinions from doctors soon through my mother-in-law to see the risk versus the benefit!!

Belly Shots!

No baby yet....

Hi Everyone!  I figured I would update you all.  No baby yet!  We're 39 weeks today... so next Tuesday is our due date.  It's been a rough couple of days though.  I'm constantly having Braxton Hicks... either with pain/cramping or without... but usually with.  I didn't have hardly any heartburn throughout my whole pregnancy until now.  Thankfully Pj was so sweet and went out last night to get me some medicine for that which seemed to help a bit!!  I feel like Trey's head is between my knees... so that's fun, lol.  It's been pretty much impossible to sleep the past few days, so I'm trying really hard to stay on the couch and nap during the day when I can... but if you know me you know that it's hard for me to stay still.  I'm trying though!  I did finally get a few hours of good sleep this morning... only to be woken up by the dog (in bed with me) throwing up all over the place.  So that was fun!  I suppose I might as well get used to gross stuff like that and being awoken from sleep constantly;-) 

I have another doctor appointment on Thursday so if Trey doesn't come before that I'm hoping that I'll find out we're really close!  We'll see:-) 

I'm really excited to meet Trey though!  It's been a long/fast 9 months and part of me still wonders how on earth a baby can fit in my stomach after holding my best friend's little newborn Ella the other day!! 

Also on a positive note, my cousin Christine was really sweet and took pregnancy photos of Pj and I (you know... those artsy ones).  She's really talented and they turned out great!  Once I can, I'll post them here for you to see:-)

Well, start praying Trey makes his appearance SOON!!!:-)  Any one want to vote on what day you think he's going to show up?  My vote is either tomorrow or Thursday... but we'll see.

The latest... 75% effaced and a little bit dilated!

Hi Everyone! Well had a drs appointment this morning and here is the latest... I'm 75% effaced and a little bit dilated. Trey was moving around like crazy that the nurse had trouble getting his heartbeat... which was higher than normal because he was so active;-) It was pretty funny!

And my best friend Chelsie is in labor with her little girl as I type this... pray that it goes quickly and smoothly for her! She was due yesterday... so pretty good timing (of course it is her second too;-)).

More next week... unless he comes before then;-)

50% Effaced & Weight Predicted!

Hi All! Just a short update. We had our doctor's appointment this morning and all is well. I'm 50% effaced so far... we'll see what happens. The doctor said with first time babies you just never know... you can be effaced and dilated for a long time and nothing happens... or it can go really fast. So he said it could be today... or it could be 3 weeks from now!

He did say that he estimates that Trey is 6lbs and 2oz right now. Typically babies gain an ounce a day at this point I've heard, so if he's right then hopefully Trey will be just right and not to big as I'm fearing;-) But I'll love to pieces no matter what size he is... although if he is over 9lbs I will never let him forget it;-)

Today is my last day of work! I'm looking forward to resting a bit and getting the list bit of things in order. Autumn is the perfect time to do that... I'm so glad he's a fall baby:-)
