Doctor appointment today

I had another doctor appointment today. It was my first internal exam - fun. I am currently NOT dilated at all (YAY!) and when I asked about inducing on March 26th (I'll get into that in a second) my Dr said that that could be possible as long as he's in town and everything goes according to plan. I go back in two weeks (March 15th) and we'll have a lot better idea of what's going on then.

The reason why I want to get to March 26th is that Cody flies in on Friday March 23rd for spring break and the 26th is that next Monday. I really really want Cody to be here for the birth and to be able to meet Noah.

As far as the stats go.... I'm currently up 26lbs. That's the total I gained when I was pregnant with Carver. That's a little hard for me to swallow. My blood pressure was a little up last appointment and this one (I didn't ask for the exact numbers) but the nurse didn't seem too concerned and she said she'd just keep an eye on it.

So prayer requests are:
*That I won't dilate anytime soon
*That it's possible to induce on March 26th
*That I can take it easy so as not to start any contractions.

Google Friends Connect

Since Google Friends Connect is coming to an end in less than a week, I have changed my way to subscribe to my blog. Now you can subscribe through a reader. It's on the left under Carver's picture. Hopefully I won't have to change this again.

So go and subscribe so you don't miss anything. :)

Making a little progress

Figured I should do an update on the progress I/we have been making.

My mom found a funeral home in Tacoma that does a lot of babies and they will do the cremation for FREE!!! That is a HUGE weight off of our shoulders. They have a few urns that we can pick from or they will give us a credit to pick out one that we want. I feel so much free-er now that that we found this out. My mom still needs to give me all the information but I am pretty confident that we will go with them.

I FINALLY started packing the hospital bag this morning. I've got Chris and me packed (well, as much as I can think of that we'll need) and most of what we'll need for Noah. There's, of course, things that won't be able to be packed until it's actually time to go to the hospital (ie. hair brush, toothbrushes, camera, etc) but I have a list of those in the bathroom so we won't forget them.

Now for the comedic portion of this post...
Last Sunday, Chris and I decided to have a date night and do dinner and a movie. We dropped Carver off at Chris's parents and headed to Tacoma to go to Outback. The food was yummy but we were on a time frame so we could get to the movie on time. I had gotten two tickets to One For the Money on Groupon for $12 TOTAL so that's what we were going to see. Since it was in it's 3rd week in theaters, there are only a few theaters that still have it. So we went to the one that we thought it was at and... we were at the wrong theater. So we rush to the right theater (me with a FULL bladder!) and we get up to the front of the line (already 3min into the movie) and they say that the movie is sold out and the next showing is at 10:30pm. WAY too late for me. I was soooo disappointed! This was the second time that we had tried to see this movie. We tried in Ellensburg and I had printed the wrong paper. The really sad thing is that the last time we'd seen a movie in the theaters was when I was pregnant with Carver!!!!

33 Weeks

No picture this week. I've been under a lot of spiritual warfare lately and am trying to come out of it. It just makes me really short tempered, depressed and I've had some dark dreams where it's really hard to go back to sleep. Last night was better after Chris and I prayed specifically about that.

I've been trying to find the strength/motivation to look into the details of cremation. Chris really wants nothing to do with that aspect and I'm trying to respect that. After asking prayers at both my Mom's group and Bible Study, my mom offered to get all the information for us so that we could make the arrangements without having to go through everything. That was a big weight lifted off of me and I think that that was part of what made me vulnerable to Satan.

We're nearing the end and my next appt is Feb 28th (my Grandma's birthday!) where my Dr will check my progress. I'm going to see if we can induce the week that my brother will be here from CO for spring break.

Ok, here's the stats for this week.

  • How far along are you? 32 weeks 6 days

  • Total weight gain: up 24lbs... I'm hoping it won't get much more than that.

  • How big is baby?: We got an ultrasound at my last appt but I forgot to see how big he is.

  • Maternity clothes: yoga pants, leggings and tops.

  • Stretch marks?: I think I found one but it's hard to tell while my skin is still stretched. Hopefully I don't get any/many.

  • Sleep?: When I don't have the dreams/nightmares, I sleep really good! I'll only get up once to go to the bathroom. How crazy is that this far along?

  • Best moment this week?: Going to breakfast with Carver at Starbucks for Valentines Day.

  • Movement?: Pretty consist - he loves Mexican food :)

  • Food cravings?: Mexican and fruit. Noah LOVES them!!!

  • Food aversions?: Carrots.

  • Labor signs?: nope. Thankfully! Just achy hips

  • Belly button in or out?: either getting smaller or pokes out depending on where Noah is.

  • What I miss: my Dr Pepper, being able to crack my own back and a margarita sounds pretty good right now.

  • What I'm looking forward to: hopefully sleeping in a little bit this weekend.

  • Milestone: only 4-5 more weeks
