38 weeks

Sorry-no pic tonight. I'm tired and very pregnant. Just wanted to update my blog after today's doc appointment. The doctor checked and I am dialated 2.5 cm. Better than nothing! Maybe not too much longer. I am really missing my old body and am ready to burn my maternity clothes! Very ready to meet this little guy :)

37 weeks and an outie

This pregnancy has been very similar to when I was pregnant with Brent but in some ways very different too. The main difference is my body. I haven't gained nearly as much weight, I am able to get around and do things a lot better, and my belly button has popped out! It actually popped out about 2-3 weeks ago but it is really sticking out now. I think it is SO COOL but it freaks Brandon out.

Another difference is the fact that I have already felt contractions. My last pregnancy I didn't feel my first contraction until I was in labor. However, the last week or so whenever I exercise I have been feeling some contractions. I think it is a good thing that this has been happening because I am totally in denial that I am about to have a new baby in a matter of weeks. This pregnancy has gone by so quick and I have had to do so little to prepare since I already have everything I need. The contractions are certainly a reminder that this is real and it is almost here.

I had my 37 week appointment this morning and everything is going great and the doctor is predicting a 7-7.5 lb. baby. We shall see!

A Mutual Weakness

So it appears that Brent and I have the same weakness for cowboy boots. I personally own a pair and LOVE them and when we spotted these today at the mall we just had to have them. It was fate. There was only one pair left and they were his size! I put them on his feet and he strutted all around the mall like a true cowboy. Who says you can't play dress up with little boys!?

In Position

I know some of you really don't care to hear this much information on my pregnancy but I am going to share anyway. My last 2 appointments the doctors commented on how Baby Owen was lying sideways in my belly and that I should be expecting him to shift his head downward any day. As of last week I could still tell that he was lying sideways, practically up in my ribs, ouch! However, I felt a shift this Tuesday and the doctor confirmed today that the baby is head down and in position! Yay!!! It is certainly more comfortable and easier to breath. However, it is a trade off because now my tail-bone hurts and I have to pee twice as much as I did before. I didn't even know that was possible! Anyways, things are going great and we are getting SO EXCITED around here!! My favorite time of year is quickly approaching and soon we will be a family of 4!!
