After the storm calmed a bit, I became the happiest pregnant lady! I loved being pregnant, well, until I started to hate it around 36 weeks. I loved feeling Olivia. I loved feeling her kick. I was one of those women who didn't mind their tummy being touched or rubbed... I loved it!
|33 Weeks - Veins and stretch marks!|
|Maternity shots - Holy Belly!|
I had two amazing baby showers where I was completely spoiled and pampered.
|Olivia's nursery theme was Little Suzy's Zoo - I had been collecting items since high school!|
|Miss my Granny :(|
|Big Belly Beautiful!|
My official due date was May 15th, 2008. Around the beginning of April I started bugging my doctor about an early induction. I was miserable, I couldn't sleep, and I just wanted my baby. I also wasn't one who wanted to go into any surprise labors. (Disclaimer: My doctor was in complete control, did an ultrasound to make sure everything was okay, and would not have induced me if she felt the baby or myself were in danger.)
My induction was set for May 1, 2008. You can read my birth story here.
At 12:48pm Olivia Rose entered the world weighing 6lb 6oz and measuring 20" long. She was my new life and it is so hard to remember life before her.
|Miss my Grandpa :(|
|The girl had TONS of bows...|
(I am just hitting on moments here, but this is where my blog kind of started; with my pregnancy. Feel free to go back and read all about our full year of 2008.)
|Sweet baby girl.|
|Olivia's ears were pierced around 16 weeks.|
|First Halloween :) My chunky monkey!|
|September - Grandpa's 80th Birthday|
