For Whom?

Setting: last night, while I'm laying on the couch, in pain, having contractions and cramps. He is in his recliner. We are watching football.

Blue: I think you should be pregnant for the next ten years or so!
Me: What!?
Blue: Yeah! We can just keep having babies until you can't get pregnant anymore.
Me: What!? WHY?
Blue: Because! This is FUN!

Promise A Post Soon

33 weeks
The changing table right after it was put together.

The crib right after it was put together. And before the mattress. I LOVE it.

Boot Love

The H1N1 flu is making me nervous. I personally know of one little girl and one grown woman (Blue's aunt who is a doctor) who have tested positive for it. There was also a 19 year old girl that lives in my area who died. She went from strep throat to flu to pneumonia and died. DIED.

I am planning on getting the vaccine for the regular flu but not the H1N1. My perinatologist wants me to get it but, I discussed it with Baby's pediatrician and she says she wouldn't. I am not comfortable with it so, I guess that's why I'm going with what she says. What are you doing for yourself and your family?

I'm Hanging In

I don't really know what I want for Labor Songs. I guess that doesn't really help ya'll in helping me but, it's true. I'm doing some Jewel (the less I-wanna-kill-myself stuff), Norah Jones and Allison Krauss.

I'm having a hard time sleeping lately. Well, the last two nights have been rough. I can't lay down all the way because I can't breathe and I get heartburn. My nose is stopped up all the time and it gets really bad when I lay down. My mom says that she slept in her La Z Boy chair at the end of her pregnancy with Little Brother. I'm trying to avoid that for as long as possible but, it may come sooner rather than later.

I am obsessed with Sonic drinks. I always have been (did ya'll know they sell bagged ice??) but, it's a little bit worse now. 2-4 is half priced drinks and slushes and I'm allllll about the Limeades. I've only had it with cranberry juice but I might branch out today and try strawberry or something. Any ideas? Oh! And if you buy a Limeade now, you'll get a little sicker on your cup. Peel it off and go to to vote for a teacher/class that needs help. They have little bios of different classes and what they need. You can click on your own state, too.

**I just got home from seeing the OB. I have to see her every Wednesday until birthday. Except for next Wednesday, when I see maternal fetal. I will have a biophysical profile every week from now until Baby comes. This is just to be safe and check Baby's growth and tolerance of gestation. They do this for women over 35 or that have other risk factors. I have thyroid issues.

The nurse who listened to Baby's heartbeat says that Baby has flipped again. She told me what I was feeling and where. Baby's head is in my bladder (well, I knew something was!) and bum is up in my ribs. I think that Baby kicks her feet or pushes her arms out to stretch too, which causes some discomfort. But, everything has been going so wonderfully, I hate to complain.

As of today, I have 60 days until my due date!

Shoeaddict Asks

I haven't done this in a long time! But, I need help. I'm going to download some music on my ipod for labor/time in hospital. Any suggestions?
I'm already thinking Norah Jones and maybe some Jewel.

Thanks to all of you who complimented my picture. I appreciate all the support. Especially when I feel so giant.

I'm going to meet with the potential pediatrician this morning. I'm really nervous and excited at the same time. I have a (long) list of questions and I'm prepared but I still feel so weird. I'm a parent. This is my job.

I'm pretty sure we are going to go with her so this is just a formality. I know a few people who see and love her. She is in with another doctor that I also know is wonderful. No one that I've talked to had anything negative to say about this practice and that wasn't the case for many others.

Blue can't come with me today though. He has been going out to work very early every morning for the past week or so. He wouldn't really do anything anyway if he came. Still, I like to have him there.

Ok, so, I gotta go choose one of my (few) shirts to wear. Fingers crossed for me!
