35 amazing weeks

So here I am, 35 weeks along and still could pass for not being preggo. lol. But baby sure is growing! We had an ultrasound on Wednesday and the tech said baby was measuring 39 weeks 5 days. Approx 6 1/2 lbs. He is sure going to be a big boy! My ribs are so tender from his kicks, he is no longer breached and the tech said he's getting into position for birth. ahhh!! scary and exciting the same time! I am finding so much more pain now. Back, sides, hips, thighs, you name it, I got it. I'm sure I see the clock every hour through the night. I don't sleep well at all, even worse than before. My energy level is almost on zero I have to force myself to move, lol. Seems baby loves music though, every time we turn it on, he kicks up a storm. I'm guessing (and hoping) he comes earlier than expected, but not too early that I have to go to St. Johns. As much as I love feeling him move inside me, I'm ready to meet my little man and have a different excuse for not sleeping, lol.

33 weeks, and counting....

Oh the heat! I hate the heat. Next time I get preggo, I'm planning it for the winter, lol. It's so uncomfortable in this heat. Maybe it isn't that hot, but I feel like I'm gonna melt. I just can't handle 25 degrees, lol. I had another appointment Wednesday past. Because my stomach was so tender, they hooked me up to the monitor. Dr. said she thinks it's because of the severe heartburn I've been having. She prescribed some ranitidine. It works wonders! But while I was on the monitor, we were watching my belly move as the baby turned over and kicked, it was so cool. But I started to get sick, and lost all color in my face and lips and got cold and clammy, thought I was going to pass out. The midwife looked scared and when she measured my blood pressure, it was 70/30. She got me to sit uo a little and then I started to come around and my blood pressure went back up. It's been about a few times that's happened since I've been preggo. They don't know what happened. But all seems to be well! another ultrasound in 10 days. Can't wait to see our little man again! People are still bringing gifts for baby since they never made it to the shower. I got more clothes and a quilt. Can't wait to put the nursery together, hopefully this weekend. We're gonna paint I think a green color to match the bedding. Sleep is getting less and less. Everything hurts. Come on baby!

Hi Baby...

...You have been so active lately! Keeps Mommy reassured that everything is ok! Daddy likes to listen to you in the mornings before he goes to work, you are always awake at 6:00am (I hope this doesn't continue after you're here) and when he puts his face to Mommy's belly, you like to kick him. He talks to you and kisses you through Mommy's belly. I can tell you have him wrapped already and you're not even here yet! I guess your living space is getting smaller now because you've decided to take up space in my ribcage. It's so cute when we can grab your little feet and you wriggle away. There was a party in your honor last Wednesday night. Everyone brought gifts and money and there was so much food! You made Mommy tired fast, but we had a great time seeing family and friends. I don't think you like loud noises though, because you seemed to be tensed up a lot and relaxed as it got quieter. I already know you're gonna be like Daddy though. Everytime there's something cooking you kick and squirm as if to say "I want some!", lol. At least you know good food ;) Time is getting shorter now, about 7 weeks left to go, maybe sooner? Who knows! All I know is we can't wait to see you and kiss you and hug you and squeeze you and cuddle you and, well, you get the idea. I just want you to know how loved you are and always will be. I hope that you grow up to be exactly who you want to be, but never forget where you came from. Here's a song that says exactly what I want you to always remember in life...

"My Wish"

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin' til you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything
My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish
I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you and the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get
Oh, you'd find God's grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything
My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold


Just wanted you to know that before you were even born, I loved you.
xoxo, Love, Mommy
