38 Week Check Up

I went to the doctor on Monday and got checked. I measured exactly 38 cm so I am still on target there. I was dialated to a 3! My doctor said that he did not think that I would make it through the week to my next appointment, but three days later I am still here. With all the snow that has been falling everywhere I am worried that if I did go into labor that my parents would not be able to make it down in time... I just really want my baby! I am ready, my bag is packed and we are just hanging out until our little guy decides that it is finally time to make his grand entrance into the world.

37 Weeks and 3 days

Well I have almost hit 38 weeks. I am feeling VERY huge and VERY uncomfortable. I will be going back to the doctor on the 27th. I am hoping that he will have some good news for me! I am more than okay with waiting until my due date to pop this little guy out, but I REALLY do not want to go over... I have had such an easy pregnancy but I am just done. I try not to complain (even though this whole post has been me complaining) but this little boy just has no more room in there, and I feel like I can not stretch any more. Baby Kael is constantly in my ribs and it is very painful and hard to sleep.

We are getting closer and closer to having everything ready for the arrival of our little boy, his room is so close to being done, just need some bedding and to get everything hung on the walls. I have his bag packed for the hospital. Kevin has been drilling me and drilling me to get some bags packed becasue he has been so worried that we will not be prepared for when "IT" happens. I am just such a huge slacker, but I am happy that Kevin is so anxious for our baby to get here. Kevin will be such a great dad and I can't wait to see him with our baby.

35 Weeks and Counting

So tomorrow 12/6 marks 35 weeks in my pregnancy, WE ARE ALMOST THERE!!! I went to the doctor on Friday, everything is checking out great. My belly is measuring at 35 cm and baby's head is pointed down, heartbeat is normal at 140 beats per minute. The doc did an exam and I am dilated to a ONE!!! I know that is not hugely amazing, and I do realize that I could stay at a 1 for weeks, but to us it was huge news and so exciting! I am still feeling pretty good, I am still working full time and going about my normal daily routine, but lately I have been ready for bed at about the second I walk through the door at night. And there is the fact that my face and fingers just keep getting fatter and fatter! As easy and sick-free as my pregnancy has been I am so excited for it to be over with!

Kevin's 25th and Thanksgiving.

So I have been hugely slacking on posting lately. There seems to be so much going on right now, I feel like I am running around like a "fat, stuffed" chicken with its head cut off.

We celebrated Kevin's 25th birthday in November. On the night of his birthday we went to dinner with is parents and Grandpa Derrall at the Porcupine. I love the Porcupine and it is always nice to have an excuse to go there and eat. If you have never been I really reccommend it! Then we had Thanksgiving. We were with Kevin's family this year and had a great dinner at Susan and Stuart's house. It was nice being able to just hang out, have some great food and watch some football. On Friday, for the first time ever I got Kevin to hit the Black Friday sales with me. We made a fabulous investment, we bought a Canon Rebel T2i camera! We have been snapping some great pics and having a lot of fun learning how to use it. We are so excited to have a super nice camera for when our baby boy gets here, I am sure that we will be taking more pictures than ever then. To finish off the fabulous week of food and family we headed up to Heber on Sunday night to celebrate Kevin's birthday with my family. My dad made him an awesome Tigger cake... Oh if I were only half as good of a cake decorater as my dad is!
