Slideshow from our SF trip in May

April May 2009 Slide Show (The other one wasn't working properly so I'm reposting this slideshow)

Baby Update #3

So I went to the doctor's yesterday and not much of a change. The baby's head is down, I am a fingertip, and 60% thinned out. So we scheduled an induction for next Wednesday at 7:30am. I am so excited to know that there will be an end to my pregnancy. I am beside myself. Of course I wouldn't mind if he came sooner but I know there will be an end. Wahoo!!!

Alexis has been telling my belly "come out baby brother" She just started that on her own. I think it is pretty funny.

Ellie has two teeth on the bottom and one on top that is working its way through. She is also signing "please", "milk", and "more". She prefers to sign "please". It gets her what she wants faster. She also learned how to drink out of a straw on Saturday and her dad thinks that that is the coolest thing ever.

Baby Update #2

We saw the doctor this morning and everything is pretty much the same as last week except for one more pound. Hopefully it is just the baby. His heart rate was around 150 something. I wouldn't mind if he came sooner than later, but I know he will come when he comes.

I am excited to get together with friends and family this Friday for a baby shower. We are going to tie baby quilts for a local charity. I just felt we should do something different and I have been blessed so greatly in my life. This is the least we could do.

For most of the pregnancy the weather has been wonderful and not too humid. However, this week has been like what a Michigan summer should be. All I want to do is lay in front of the fan and keep cool.

This morning I woke up around 3:30am and couldn't sleep because all I could think about were the dirty dishes in the sink, the unwashed unfolded clothes, and the messy basement. So I got up and took care of things. Then went back to sleep. I hope it doesn't happen again.

Baby Update

We went to the doctor on Monday after attending the 1p36 Conference in Indianapolis. I am half way thinned out and closed. The baby's head is dropped as far as will be until delivery and he is head down. So we expect no baby this week.

Because of that Brian has left for California to work on his research paper with Ted. Which I thought was fine until tonight when I started having regular contractions. They have calmed down some so I don't think anything will happen. I also just realized that there is a full moon tonight which might mean something or not.

So hopefully no baby until Sunday at least. We'll keep you updated.
