One Month to Go!

Wow, I can't believe I only have one more month until our new little bundle of joy arrives! On one hand, I am wanting this month to fly by because I am so tired and sore and having trouble sleeping comfortably, etc, and I want to meet our new baby! Then on the other hand, I am starting to feel overwhelmed that I have SO MUCH left to do before the baby comes! Only a couple of things really HAVE to be done, but there are a lot of things I would like to do. I have pretty much everything I need from when I had Jimmy so we are pretty much set, I just feel the need to get some little "extras" for when baby arrives. I have not, however, started to nest. I never did with Jimmy and I really hope I do this time. I need that burst of energy and motivation to get some deep cleaning/organizing done! I have a dr. appointment next week and then they will be weekly after that. I am still working on my birth plan and I have to meet the pediatrician who will be doing the hospital visit for the new baby. Our family dr. doesn't do the hospital visits so I had to find someone to do a one time newborn screening. I had a good recommendation so I feel pretty confident about this dr.

My last dr. appt. went well, another quick one, but he said the heart rate was 136 and the baby had dropped a little. The baby has been getting the hiccups regularly and movement has become a little more restricted. I can see little bumps moving across my belly when the baby moves, it is so neat. That feeling never gets old!

Here is a pic I took on my cell phone of my almost 36 week baby "mountain," that ain't no bump lol!

Oh and as far as names go, I have a couple I like, but we won't "know" what the right name is until the baby arrives. All the names I liked for girls last time don't sound right this time so I had to figure out new ones (or one really, I am so picky!). And boy names....ugh. I like 2 and Jim doesn't like either of them. Soooo....we'll see what happens! Let me know if anyone has any suggestions =)

How exciting... this new little pumpkin will really change everything in your soon to be larger family.. all is good!

Oh, the hard part of choosing a name she/he will have forever...

I love my girls names (dah?!) Tamis and Brea..both are different, and both girls like their names :) I also like Elise for a girl,( yes a grandaughter of ours), but not so common a name.

Boy names that are favorites for us.. Trevor, Caleb...(did I say more grandkids?!)

I pray for a smooth delivery!!!

Ali, I was so happy to buy a new bassinet this time. "If" I ever lay him down lol.

You are getting so close. Did you ever tour your hospital? Blessings, Audrey
