New Pictures

So here are the 33 week pictures. Ew, stretch marks. At least they are low? I'm totally grossed out by them, but hey, it's life and if I have to have stretch marks to have my baby, bring them on! :) Went for my 2nd NST today. I am having severe back pain and Braxton Hicks, but everything is normal. Just my body 'gearing up'. My next appt. is April 1st, and hopefully then we will talk more about the induction. I am looking at May 9th as the date.

I am also including some pictures of Andrea and Rex. Haha... let me explain. Andrea learned how to hang blinds. But not without getting light headed, forgetting how to breathe, and developing her very own "stool" to sit on.

Rex - Well... you know... his shirt says it all!! He was supposed to be working, but yet, he decided the Easter Bunny needed to come visit while everyone else was working. LOL. It was a great laugh and we love him!

Just got back from Texas. Super sleepy but really miss my sister and mom! I wish I could have stayed there (but without all the manual labor! :) Had a really good trip. Andrea and Rex's new house is cute. They are doing so much work to it to make it their home, and that makes me happy. I would like to say it was nice and calm and relaxing. In reality, it was busy, went by way too fast, and was pretty painful. :) But it was so nice to be all together again.

April 5 is my first baby shower and I COULDN'T be more excited!! Rhonda has done sooo much (I am not allowed to know!) and she is super excited too.

So doctor will induce me early if I would like. Well, of course, if anyone knows me, of course I would like, haha. I'm completely impatient. I also want to be able to plan it to where my sub is covered, everyone that wants to be there is available (work, etc.) So, right now the day looks like May 9th. That is a Friday. Who knows if that day would be the day or if that weekend she would make her appearance? Also, will have to check with doc to see if that day is even available. So, that is where we stand.

Drum Roll Please.... THAT MEANS THERE IS ONLY 34 MORE WORK DAYS until I am a Mommy!!! WOWOWOW!!

Have a great week everyone! I also hope everyone had a good Easter! :) Loves!

Oh my Goodness...

Does anyone else see what I see?!? 59 days to go?!? I remember when it was like almost 200 something! Holy Bejeezus! Not that I am not completely ready, but wow!

We are now going to the doc every two weeks. This week (Wed. specifically) I start my weekly NST (Non-stress tests). I do believe DAH (XH, whatever you want to call him) is coming with me.

Just to keep everyone up to date, things are going well between the two of us. If I remember to keep my nosey self out of his personal business, I really enjoy talking to and spending time with him. I do believe he is becoming more and more excited about Olivia's arrival.

I learned last week that the hospital has excellent chocolate milkshakes available 24/7. That was encouraging to him. Haha

Dad and I are headed to Andrea and Rex's this coming weekend. I'm so excited to see my sister and her new house of course! Now I just wonder what we are eating for Easter... haha.

This week is Spring Break. FINALLY. It has been a long school year and the big part, testing, is yet to even come.

Well, guess I should get some sleep.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

P.S. Send my friend Sarah lots of labor vibes! I want her to have this baby before I leave on Friday! Come on CJ, we are ready to meet you! :)

Drum Roll Please...

Above: Maybe grimacing. Loks like maybe a dimple on her chin?

She was moving during this one, so kind blurry.

As my father would say, she is my daughter. Mouth open.

Either she was really mad we kept looking at her,
but I like to think she was licking her arm.

Her thinker position. Her hand/fist is resting on her forehead.
The ultrasound experience was great. Her head is behind my left hip bone, so some turned out not so great. Her butt is under my right rib cage, and her feet and hands are on my left side of my stomach.
I think she looks like XH. Chloe's baby pictures also look like Olivia. They have the same nose, XH's nose. Which is okay, Chloe is a cutie. :)

Labor and Delivery

I went to the clinic last night about 4pm due to fever, headache, drainage, all the normal sinus junk. They took my temp, which was still 101 (had been all day) and immediately sent me to L&D, due to me not feeling Olivia as much throughout the day. That got me completely nervous, but I know they were just covering their bases. Got there about 5. Was immediately asked for a pee sample and hooked up to the machines. Olivia's heartrate was a little on the higher side than they wanted to see, but they figured it was due to my own temp, so I got two tylenol. The funny part, my OB had her baby on the 26th, and she was there with her baby and was super shocked to see me, But she was able to read all the graphs too. Anyway, I was having terrrrrible lower back and lower leg pain. And within my hour I did have small contractions. ACK! I surely hope I don't have back labor when the time comes!!! They decided the contractions were due to dehydration. Yup, here came the IV. And I have baaaad veins. It had to be in the crook of my arm, which was not fun. I got a whole bag of fluids in 45 minutes, I had to pee so bad! They also did a CBC (I think that is what they called it) and everything was fine. White blood count was perfect. While there they gave me crackers. cheese sticks, peanut butter, and graham crackers. They were sooo nice and it's such a small hospital, I realy think birth day is going to be perfect. So I got home about 9 from my moms house and the weird part is, no more back pain. So I guess when I start suffering from severe lower back pain, I am already dehydrated. I thought I always drank plenty, but this showed me otherwise. They just put me back on an antibiotic for a sinus infection, hoping it's not the flu.
Whew, sorry that got so long. I'm headed back to bed.
