37 weeks....

and here we go....

How Far Along: 37 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 24lbs....

Is your nursery done? 75%.... I working a little on it each night after Lily Anne goes to bed. It is really hard to work on it with her undoing things! I know she just wants to help....but oh my...

What is your favorite piece of baby gear that you've purchased? Our glider.... I moved it from Lily Anne room. (she got a new comfy is really nice too)

Which stroller did you buy? Chicco.

How many inches around is that bump? I have never measured.

Are you getting nervous? just a little...but not about labor or the hospital stay...but about the your are home...

Have you dropped yet? um...I think a little...only because she is SO low.

Any other signs that baby is on their way? I am dialated...and she is really low...does that mean anything... I dunno.

How do you feel in general? actually I feel pretty great. I am tired at the end of the day and definitely not sleeping good at all....but I am happy each day. Enjoying the last weeks of pregnancy instead of wishing it away.

What are you getting the most excited about? to actually meet her. I have felt her the whole be able to put her in my arms...ahh...

Any big fears or concerns? how will Lily Anne adjust once we are all home. Having a newborn again scares me a little.

What is in your hospital bag? is not even packed. I need to get on that I guess.

Are you exercising? Yup, about 2 miles of walking at night. I have since the start...except on bad weather days.

How many more days until D-Day? um....

What are you doing to keep yourself occupied if you’re on leave already? I am still working! keeps my mind distracted.

36 weeks and updates

So we had our 36 week appt yesterday. We had another growth u/s to check everything because I am measuring small. (although I feel freaking huge)

So... Olivia is measuring 5lb 15oz. My fluid level is low (borderline at 6.5cm)...anything below 5cm in LOW.

**so we have another u/s schedule for May 4th at 38 weeks.**

Me... BP was back to normal, no protein this time (thank goodness for both!) gained 2lbs. Not bad! 1st Internal (yucky): Olivia is really low! and I am 1 cm. Both mean nothing to me!


Lily Anne....where does one start with her? She has become my chatter box! I AM SO GLAD TO HEAR HER TALKING!!!! I do have to really listen to figure some of it out...but some words are so clear. She also has started to play mommy and me. Loves her baby dolls and is so sweet to them. Fun to watch her play and not notice that I am watching.

Now, the ugly....She is becoming INDEPENDENT!!! Wants to do everything herself. Gets really mad when she can not. I offer to help and seems to make matters worse. Usually ends up with both of us mad. She also had her first session in TIME OUT on Sunday afternoon. Nothing was making her listen and all she wanted to do was throw stuff and scream. This behavior does not work in our household. So I resorted to time out and it worked. I chillled out for a minute, she screamed...but stayed there. When her minute was up we talked and gave hugs and kisses. Lily Anne was great for the rest of the evening! SHOCKED!!!

35 weeks. hum....

How Far Along: 35 weeks and several days.... but 30 days to go!!! How much does baby weigh: most like 4lbs... I know what all the literature says... 5 to 6lbs. But seriously Lily Anne was on born at 6lbs (39 weeks) small babies! Maternity clothes: yes 100% but I am growing tired of wearing the same thing! Cravings: OJ... Sleep: what is sleep? I spend the night....up and down. Bathroom, get comfy, roll due to hips, sleep.... then repeat 2 hours later. Movement: it is a daily and nightly battle with her. She is all over the place....boxing ring or soccer field.... Belly button in or out: Innie! What I miss: not being so tired lately. What I'm looking forward to: Next Wednesday. We get to see Olivia on the u/s one last time. it is to check on her since we are measuring just a little small. Milestone: 30 days or less to go!!!!!!!

beach photos

These are just a few of the million I have but....thought I would share. We had a great time at the beach and enjoyed each day!

Because I am always talking about Lily Anne's is UPCLOSE and PERSONAL...the color Ginger Red I am talking about. Nothing like mama's! But it gets thicker and thicker each day.... I am completely in love with the color. Although the fierce attitude that is comes with, I am not in love with at all.

My heart and soul!!! I love her to pieces!!
