The This and That...

Hey everybody! I hope all of you are doing well. I wanted to thank all of you for your congratulations about the birth of Judah. We are so happy that he is finally here.

Not much other than baby related stuff has been going on around here. Our little man had his two week appointment on Friday and was back up to his birth weight. (There is a long story about this, but let's just say that he wound up gaining 11 ounces between last Tuesday and last Friday.)

We have been adjusting to being new parents, mainly the lack of sleep at night. My body is starting to adjust though and I just love to have an excuse to snuggle up with my little man for an afternoon or mid-morning nap. For the time being, I have been spending my days with Judah snuggled up on my chest. I figure this time will only last so long, so I am enjoying it while I can.

One of my friends did some maternity pictures for us around 36 weeks. I thought I would share a couple of them with you.

Any New News (38 Weeks)...

Hello everyone! Apparently these little two week hiatuses are just part of my life right now. I am sorry if I have left you hanging about whether or not the baby has arrived...

But, our little boy still has not made his entrance. However, since the last post I did have a false alarm that had us spending half of the day in Labor and Delivery at the hospital and got my mom on the road between here and Florida. Turns out even though I was having very regular "mini-contractions" they weren't the real deal and we were discharged. My mom did wind up coming on out here though since we weren't sure if things would kick into high gear or not. We had a great time getting to have some girl time. We mainly shopped, talked, walked around, and ate. It was nice to actually get to hang with my mom instead of us being consumed by a project around here.

Me and the tummy at 38 weeks and 3 days.

This week is the week though. My Lovenox injections have been switched to twice a day Heparin injections so that I can have an epidural if I want it. I had a check up today and everything seems good. The baby is still happy and he had the hiccups almost the whole time I was on the monitor today. I go in later on this week to be induced. So this is the week and I can't believe that this time next week I will be holding my own little boy, my son. I am soooo excited.

Today I zoned the nursery and my hallway. Tomorrow I am going to zone our bedroom, the kitchen, and the bathroom. On Wednesday, I am going to zone the office/dogs' room and living/dining room. I had a lot of energy this morning and I think that the adreniline of the baby coming (nesting) and the fact that both my parents and my in-laws are coming is helping me finish off my to do list.

Hopefully I will be back before I am induced because I had a couple of things I wanted to share that I am just too tired right now to write out. But, if not, then next time you here from me I will be holding my little boy. :-D
