Reading Other Blogs

Reading other people's blogs can be so fun! I love to read all my friends blogs before I start work - okay it looks like it may take a long time but everyone does not update their blog on the same days. I love to hear what people are doing, many are VERY encouraging, I love, love, love pictures, and I love the ones that make me laugh. It's just fun!

So here's to all my pregnant friends. This is a blog I got encouragement from the other day - WHATEVER!! I know this person...It's not some random friend of a friend. And to those who are not pregnant but love labor and delivery stories (as I do)...Enjoy!

Happy Labor and Delivery!!

This is what we get EXCITED about...


Our house in the snow! NO kid pictures because they were at my sister and mom's house! It was so NICE! What a great weekend - quite, cold - but warm in the house, and my bed - AAAHHH my bed...A day I'll never forget! BLISS!

I love how some of you made snowmen and I don't see how! We must not have gotten as much as some of you OR - you are just VERY good at building snowmen!
By the way Leslie, I know you are wishing you were in Alabama so you could put your snow boots on and take some of those pictures you were talking about! HAHAHA!!

99 Days and Counting!

Has anyone noticed that I only have 99 days (hopefully less) left of being PREGNANT! YAY! I've actually enjoyed the last few weeks of pregnancy. I'm now looking more pregnant than fat and I feel 1000 times better than I have been feeling. The baby is letting me know it's there all the time. I LOVE IT!

As most of you know we have decided NOT to find out the gender! It's been fun. One month I'm convinced it's a boy and others it's a girl. Jason says it's a MAJOR LOGICAL FALLACY - but right now I think it might be a girl because there are A LOT of girls being born around my due date. A girl at my church is due April 29 - she's having a girl and Karen is having a girl she's right with me. There have been some girl babies born just recently too. I wish Delilah was pregnant because then I would assume the opposite gender. We've NEVER (a whole two times) had the same gender baby! So, Lilah, your really messing me up here! But I have been praying that I'm surprised at the delivery. I'm really not wanting to think either gender! What brings me back to a boy is the heart rate.

I went to the Dr. last week and had a good visit. I tipped the scales to the 150 section! That was depressing but the Dr. did say I was measuring 27 weeks (when I was 25) - that's two weeks ahead of schedule. He said it may be third pregnancy and I asked "But, it could mean big baby?" and he agreed. With my history, I thinking big baby! I'll just say HEALTHY! The heart rate was 146 - so that made me think boy again! I wish I had NEVER heard of that stupid Old Wives Tale. Then I would be clueless because with this pregnancy - this baby has some similarities of Noah and some of Anna. And circumstances could be some of why they are similar at different times! So, the point is... I DON'T KNOW, and CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT!

Jason's parents came over Saturday and Jason and his dad finished the roof of our porch - which was a GREAT home improvement but my mother in law helped me get the nursery ready! Anna is almost completely out of her room, all that is left is her clothes. Jason is going to set up the bed and bring the diaper changing table up this week. It's starting to feel like we're having a baby! If it's a girl we are using Anna's bedding and if it's a boy my sister gave me my nephew Will's bedding - so we are set in that area! It was so fun preparing for the baby!

So, it's 99 days and counting and I couldn't be more excited about our new little addition! Posted below is a link to the Chinese Lunar Calendar - a baby predictor...Figure out what you were to have and tell me if it was right or wrong. I would be having my third boy if it was right!
