The Bags are Packed!

The bags are packed, but don't get too excited! I went to the doctor Friday and NO changes! I didn't get to see my doctor because she got called to deliver and she had three more patients in labor! The nurse asked if I would be ok seeing the nurse practitioner and I said yes because I didn't want to be there all day!

I had an ultrasound and Brody now weighs six pounds, eight ounces! He's still a little below average, but the NP did tell me he scored eight out of eight on a test for movement and health! He's just going to be small, which is fine with me. I didn't realize when I had Hunter at seven pounds, two ounces, he was below average. It was big enough for me though :o) I would post pictures, but Brody is so smushed in there, it's kind of hard to tell what is what in the picture without seeing it in person.

His diaper bag is packed, the newborn lounger is ready, and thank God Brett's brother and wife bought me a new Boppy! I used my old one so much that it is basically flat! Those things are wonderful and I couldn't live without it!

I have an appointment on Friday, if I make it until then! I probably will since I've been telling everyone that I will go early! I'm just ready and we are ready to meet our newest family member!

Baby Bump!

I had a baby shower this past weekend and it was wonderful! I am blessed with many friends and family who showered Brody and I with tons of gifts!

My bestie, as we call each other, Lori made this diaper wreath for me to hang on the door at the hospital! Too cute, right?! She is so creative and I absolutely love it!

And here is a baby bump picture for everyone- actually two baby bumps! My friend Brittany is due November 10th with a little girl! This is their first and we are so excited for them! We have already arranged Brody and Olivia's marriage! :o)

Sorry it's such a short post, but this pregnancy is nearing the end and it is definitely taking a toll on me! I don't sleep much at night, my heartburn is out of control, etc. It's all worth it though and I wouldn't trade it for anything! I have a doctor's appointment Friday so I will update everyone then!

Update and 37 Weeks!

Here is why I have been MIA!!! Brett and his good friend Matt put down hardwood (laminate) flooring throughout our house! It is gorgeous and ten times better than our carpet! No matter how many times I steam cleaned the carpet, it never seemed clean to me. We had to unhook our computer, but now I am back in the Internet world!

I will be 37 weeks this Saturday and I have my preadmission appointment that day as well. We will take care of the paperwork and what not- this way Brett won't have to worry about filling everything out when I arrive to have the baby! Sorry, no belly shot today, but I have a shower this weekend and will post pictures from it!

We are busy working on Brody's room- nothing like waiting until the last minute!!! It's going to be a beautiful nursery and we plan to finish it this weekend!

Also, Brett says I'm a dork, but I think it would be neat to have him this Sunday! Why you ask?!?! His birthday would be 10/10/10!!! How cool, right?!?! We're not completely ready for his arrival, so it might not be the greatest as far as timing, but we are anxious for him to join our family! And if he decides to come this weekend, we won't complain!
