With only a few weeks left it is time for you to start making your predictions as to when baby will arrive! Will it be boy or girl? What date will it arrive? What time of day? How much will it weigh? Any name predictions? Brenda...it is ok to tell me what names you hate too! :)
Humor me please...I need something to help speed up the next few weeks!

36 Weeks

Yesterday I went to the dr. for my 36 week appointment. I gained no weight in the last two weeks and my blood pressure was much lower than it had been last time! Baby's heartbeat was around 142 bpm and it has been moving SO MUCH lately...especially in the evening! I am also including a picture of me from Wednesday. I now go see my regular dr. every week until baby comes so I will update you again next week!

35 weeks-Dr. Visit

Today we saw our ob-gyn for our 7th ultrasound in order to track the position of the placenta. Well, it turns out the placenta has moved sometime during the last 5 weeks. It has moved up and away from the cervix and so we no longer will have to have a c-section. This means that I technically have 5 weeks until the due date and will just have to wait until I go into labor. :)
We were excited to have a baby in just a few weeks, but I guess we will have to wait a few more and take what comes! I still have been feeling pretty good and am still able to get down on the floor with my kiddos at work...as well as get up without a tow truck!! I still plan on working until the day I go to have this baby. Thanks for checking in on our day!

34 weeks

Today I had a visit with my regular dr. to see how things were going. I gained 8 lbs in the last two weeks...must have been the McDonald's lunches that I have eaten several times this week!! :)
She checked the cervix and it is not thinning at all yet which is a good thing since I technically have 6 weeks left. The strep B test was also done to see if I am a carrier of that...not for sure when results will be back for that. When I arrived my blood pressure was a bit high, but they checked it again and it was lower so that is really not a concern...thankfully! Other than that she just said we will see what the ob-gyn sees next week on the ultrasound to decide when this baby is going to be born!! Thanks for checking in on our progress!

33 weeks--Baby Shower!!

Yesterday I had a wonderful baby shower with some great friends and family in Deshler! Chad and I received so many great things and have spent the evening putting things away and deciding on which things to wash now. We are so excited that we have received so much bath stuff, various baby care items, sleepers, and blankets and so much more!

For Christmas we received a VERY CUTE diaper bag from my parents and so I am including a picture of that so everyone can see just how cool it really is! The inside has the same colors of fabric like the front but the pattern is striped instead of circles and squares. It also came with a matching changing pad! It is from Zag Bag customized purses/bags and there is a website if you want to buy one for yourself!!

I also am including a few pictures of some friends that were at the shower. The first one is of Gina and Brenda who are friends from college. Brenda (on left) recently had a baby and Gina(on right) is expecting her first this summer so we have lots to talk about when it comes to babies!!!

The next picture is of some friends from high school. Jennifer (on left) has a daugher and so she too had some good ideas to share with me. Steph (on right) is the other friend and she was the lone hostess for the day. The other two ladies that were going to help her were sick and so she did a great job of getting everything done on her own. Thanks so much Steph for all you did!!!
It was so exciting to have so many fun people around to celebrate the addition to our family!
