Another doctors appointment this morning. Nothing much has changed he said. He did strip my membranes again and told me that this time he would make sure that it hurt. Okay thanks doc! We will see if it worked. My belly is measuring small so his prediction for her size is 6lbs. 12 oz. I told him that I really don't feel like she is that small. haha So we wait another week and see if anything has happened.
On another note my friend Meg went in last night to be induced. I'm so excited and happy for her!! Hopefully she has had her sweet little girl by now! :) Congrats Meg, Andrew, and Dillon. What a great addition to the family.

Nothing New Here

Does time move backwards???? I think at this point it does. Nothing major has happened this week...just lots of aches and pains!! I am looking forward to going home after work today because Auntie Chelsea is painting a tree in the nursery for me. I'm overly excited to see how it turns out. I'll post pictures of it when I get home. As for now we just wait and wait... And I get bigger and bigger! haha I know it will be worth every moment once we get to see her.

Ready or NOT???!?

Another week...another doctors appointment. Today he is going to be stripping my membranes. Yikes I hear it hurts but then again it's just the beginning to a much more painful process!! As I hear from different people that it could send me into labor right away. :) I wouldn't be disappointed. haha I say that now! I took a picture of my belly this morning with my dress on but of course I left it at home. I'll try to upload it later. I just wanted to update everyone before I forgot. To be continued...

Tick Tock

Well we have some exciting news. I went to the doctor this morning and I have some technical words to entice all of you. He said that I'm 2cm dilated, 70% effaced, and that she is stationed. Technically that sounds like a lot but realisticly I could go 3 or 4 more weeks. He did say that he thought I would go in the next week though. But not to get my hopes up. haha Too late doc!


This is from the first shower I had in Hanover.

Here are some of the ones from last weekend's shower.

I received so many wonderful gifts!!!

I think I've lost my marbles!

Only a few weeks left and when people say that the last month is the worst, they aren't kidding!! I try really hard not to complain too much because I know in the end it will be all worth it but some days I just want to scream. haha It's true!! All the parts of your body that you didn't think could hurt...DO! I've just decided to deal with the lack of sleep but with no sleep then the brain doesn't work well or in my case at all! So sorry for anything I've missed, forgotten, or wasn't told five times in order for me to even remember. I told myself since I was taking really good vitamins that the memory loss wouldn't be there...wrong again!!

On the bright side I have had two amazing showers in the last few weeks. The first one was in Hanover (which is by Albertville). My sister, cousin, and aunt put that one on together. I was able to see a bunch of my cousins that I don't ever get to see. The oldest one there was my dad's Aunt Alice who is 92!! We always get a kick out of her. Great food, lots of family and friends, and LOTS of amazing gifts.
The second one was in Detroit Lakes. Aron's sisters put it on. Monessa had a great idea of doing a book theme. Along with the gifts people brought they were suppose to bring a favorite childhood book. I received soooo many great books and presents!!! We had a great turnout as well. Lots of friends were able to make it to that one. Plus I can't forget all the yummy food as well!!
Thanks to my family for putting together these two events. I had a wonderful time and this little girl is going to be very spoiled from all the great gifts we received!!!
Stay tuned.
Pictures to come....
