Le Diaper Bag and 39 Weeks!

Well!! We're still hanging on to the good ole pregnancy state of life!! Today is my official due date. Pretty weird!! I had a Dr. appointment on progress! Dang! We'll keep waiting though! Someday he'll decide to make an entrance....either on his own or with some help I guess!

Todd's here....thank goodness! :) It's been a lot less stressful this week! Maybe I should get stressed and the baby will come?? :) Nah! We've been just getting things ready for baby. We got a baby seat finally and we're setting up the crib today. Not much else we can do except wait though!

I made a receiving blanket and burp clothes for a friend of mine which was fun. These aren't really good pictures but you can kind of get the idea!

I finished the diaper bag also! The big one is for me....and the little one is for Todd!! :) Ok not really but we'll put the diapers and wipes in the little one so we can just grab and go....and Todd won't have to carry a man bag around! :)

Todd's Diaper Bag! :)

Here's good old Week 39 picture! I guess I should take a Week 40 picture too....we'll see what happens! :)

Well I think that's about it!! Maybe my next post will have pictures of the little one! :) Let's hope!

Week 37 & 38!!

Holy Cow!!! I can't believe it!!! We are so close!! I don't have a picture of week 37 but I think I look the same in all of them so just imagine week 38 picture maybe a little smaller! :)

We had a Dr. appointment at week 37. Everything is going well! I was dialated to 1.5 and 70% effaced! I was slightly nervous thinking that we were still 2 weeks away from Todd getting here! We also had an Ultrasound that day because the Dr. was nervous about how I was measuring. The baby is doing awesome though!! He is measuring smaller but the Dr. isn't worried saying that you have to take into consideration the size of the mom too!

We had a Dr. appointment today for week 38. It went well! I'm still 1.5 cm and the Dr. says that the babes will definitely be in when Todd arrives on Saturday!! :) Yeah!! We made it!!! So nice!! We had another Ultrasound today to check that the amniotic fluid and Baby were still doing ok. Everything is great still!! Baby is moving around and gained 1/2 lb since last week! He's also head down which is very comforting-no C-sections here. Hopefully! :) I'm glad he's doing well! It's still scary though that it is so close! I can't be a mom!! Really??

Week 38-Yeah I'm not looking too hot!! :)

Things are going ok in Utah! I wish I was in Alaska but it's ok! I stay busy with lots of Temple visits and lots of reading! I go on lots of walks too....the weather is nicer here but it is slightly hot!! I made the diaper bag too-future post! Promise! :) I've gone to a few prenatal classes too-they're kind of fun.....mostly just reviews from nursing school though.

Todd is doing well in Barrow! He's crazy busy with all of his activities! They found a substitute too!! Yeah!! Two days ago actually-yeah we were getting nervous! He was actually an old Science teacher at Barrow awhile ago and his son is the PE teacher there now.

Well I think that's it for now!! 9 days until the due date!! Ahh! Any day he could be here!! Which is fine with me just as long as it's after Saturday!!! But if he wants he can stay in there as long as he wants to!! :)

K well see ya!! :)

Weeks 34, 35 & 36!!

So! At the moment I am sitting in the Anchorage Airport waiting to get on a 2 am flight down to Phoenix, Arizona and then I'll get on a flight to Salt Lake! Ugh I am tired!! I can't believe it's 'the trip to have the baby' as Todd called it! It's come so fast! And as much as I love our families.....I was not and still am not too fond of it. I hate leaving Todd! It's the hardest thing! And to think back on how much we've been apart....I don't think it'll ever get easier! I was thinking though. We've spent the longest time together-January to October, 9 months-since we've met. Pretty weird since we've known each other for 28 months and have been married for 22 months of that! Good thing we have each other for forever!!! :)

Here are the most recent....kind of....glamor shots!! We don't have very many left!!

Week 34

Week 35

Week 36

Well! I think that about does it!! For now at least!! We have a doctors appointment on Wednesday so hopefully we find everything is still progressing well! I feel like it is!! :)

Oh!! I don't have any pictures but Saturday night during the Priesthood session of conference, some friends of mine had a Baby Shower for me! :) It was so fun!! We had a great time and it was fun being with all of my Branch friends before I left!

Now I think that's it for now!! :) Time to wait some more for the plane rides! So lovely!

P.S. 20 days until I see Todd!! :) Unless Baby makes his entrance sooner! :)
