Appointment Update

I had my appointment today (8/28). They did an ultrasound and a stress test just to be sure everything was okay with the little man. The US went great, a little painful with her pushing on my belly for 30 minutes, but everything looked good! She guessed about 9lbs 3oz for his weight. yikes! ha ha an unfortunately for this mama, his head was measuring 'off the charts'... like literally, off the charts, she couldnt measure it! YAY! haha.. Thanks a lot, Jake! ;) Other than that scary news, he seems to just be really comfortable in there.

I went in with my mind made up, I was going to put my selfishness aside, and do whatever the doctor told me was best. I was going to schedule induction if he suggested it, and continue riding it out if he'd let me. I really really REALLY want to go into labor on my own. Like REALLY bad!

After the US and stress test were done, we waited not so patiently for Dr Nichols to come in and check me and crossed our fingers that I had progressed and he would give us good news!

He came in and checked me. 80% effaced but only dilated to a 2+, he couldnt quite call it a 3. To say I was disappointed would be a huge understatement. I was so bummed.. He stripped my membranes and told me he'd go check out our options for induction, he didnt feel comfortable waiting too much longer, even though things looked good right now. He knew about the baptism and promised us he'd do everything he could to shoot for Tuesday the 1st. That was cutting it close, but gave me some peace that I still had a few days to do this on my own but I could still be to K's special day! He left to go get me on the schedule and a few moments later, came back into the room.. his words were 'guys, I'm really sorry but at Riverton, the earliest we can go is Thursday". I did everything in my power not to burst into tears! THURSDAY?! K gets baptized on SATURDAY.. So either I would be JUST leaving the hosptial (if all goes well) and I'd be taking a brand new baby out in public, or I'd still be there. Either one seemed wrong. I asked how much longer we could wait and his answer was a firm 'its time to get this baby out'. I knew then that he was looking out for my and my baby's best interest and I needed to listen. So all I can do now is pray for my body to go into labor this weekend! Really, any day before Thursday ups my chances of making it, so lets hope for that! I'm willing and have tried just about everything.. Sex (sorry family!), long walks, spicy foods, bouncing on an exercise ball/couch.. everything! Well, except Castor Oil. NO thanks!

For now, I'll keep being pregnant, and not very happy about it! Sheesh, I'm an emotional wreck! Come on, baby boy!  Your mama needs you!

40 weeks. Who is 40 weeks pregnant?! Okay.. a lot of people are, but I didn’t think I would be one of them. Remember how I measured 'ahead' all pregnancy?! UGH!

Week 28-34 Update

Due date:   Aug 27, 2015 / Aug 15, 2015 (according to the 3-D ultrasound)
What fruit are you: Currently - cantaloupe
How far along:  34 weeks
Next appointment:  July 21st
Gender:  Boy!

Total weight gain/loss:  +/- 30 lbs 
Exercise: Horrible! I have decided that I'm going to do what I can to just feel good, and right now I don't have the energy to work out. I've been working weekends, late nights and very long days so sadly, exercise has fallen by the way side. I still feel good though, and have that itch to get back in shape after baby!
Stretch marks:  Yes. The lovely little things showed up about week 30. Not dark, but they are there.
Swelling:  nope! I've been really luck and only had swollen feet maybe 3-4 days when I've been really hot!
Maternity clothes: Almost always! I can still get away with non maternity tops if they are long
Belly button: Inny still, shockingly!

Sleep: Great! I have been sleeping really well for the most part, I have to pee every night, but just once. And rolling over wakes me up, as I have no ab muscles to get me to the other side, but I fall right back to sleep!
Food cravings: watermelon. the last month plus I think I'd take watermelon over anything else! Including chips, in fact, last night Jake and I made a bet. I had to give up chips or watermelon the rest of my pregnancy. I chose chips! THAT is a shocking fact right there..
Food aversions: None
Symptoms: Starting to get a few Braxton Hicks. Mostly after a day of overdoing it, but nothing too scary. I did have one full blown contraction that scared us pretty good around week 32. It was only one, and that was one too many! OUCH! And does waddling count?! I've felt myself waddle a time or two recently! ;)
Movement:  He has gone from kicking my ribs to rolling around like crazy! I think he's too big to get any more good kicks in (running out of room in there) but his rolls are CRAZY! My whole stomach moves! So much fun!
Labor signs: Not since my one contraction

What I miss:  Still sushi and my last Summer's body ;)
What I'm loving: feeling so great still, and the excitement in the air! THIS is real! We are having a baby!! Kailee hugging and patting my belly, and her excitement. The showers, getting things organized and set up, and enjoying our last few weeks as a family of 3!
What I'm looking forward to: Baby boy mostly! But until then, my other showers, Giles girls trip and every doctor's appointment! Along with the groundbreaking of our new house this week! Whoa whoo!
Best moment these past few weeks: Watching K bug's tumbling class, girlfriend loves it and works so hard! So much fun to watch her love something and work hard at it, cabin time with the Andrus family, Island Park with the Robbins family, Baby appointments, design center and all the excitement with our new house, my surprise day date to Fetal Photo with Jake, and a day spent shopping in Park City, K bug coming home from her week plus trip to WA. We missed her SO much! And my first two showers. My Giles shower was July 18th. We hung at my mom's pool and baby and I were SO spoiled! Thank you everyone for coming and spoiling us! It is always so much fun to hang out with the Giles crew! And Morg and her boys, after all they are family! Thanks mom, for such an amazing day/weekend. I loved having that time with you and you absolutely amaze me with all you do! You completely spoiled baby boy, and I already know he's going to adore you, just like the other 3 do! The blankets were all perfect! Love your new machine! ha ha! We also had our Krew friends shower on the 19th, where once again, we were SPOILED! We have the greatest group of friends, and to Jamie, Jayme and Nicole.. THANK YOU for making us feel so special and so spoiled! You are incredible women and friends and we are so lucky to have you, and baby boy is going to love you three SO much! Thanks for making K feel special too, and for all the little details that went into that day. We felt SO loved!
 
Milestones:  Baby boy is packing on the fat and enjoying his last few weeks in my belly! I can tell how much he has grown by the way the movements have changed. It's gone from rib kicks, to complete body rolls, and I have loved SEEING my belly move! He is SO loved! We can not wait to love on you, dude! Dad can't wait to have his little buddy and sister can't wait to hold you! xoxo
