Update – 34 Week OB Appointment

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

When I first arrived, it was a little after 8 – my appointment being at 8:15 a.m.

I learned that my doctor was not only on vacation, but so was the nurse practitioner! Ugh!

Thankfully, with not too much wait time, I was able to see one of the partners before any of her other patients! Yeah!

Telling her about the contractions on Monday being 2-4 minutes apart and the pain that I had yesterday where I couldn’t even walk, she checked me….still dilated to a one.  With that said, though, she has dropped more into the birth canal, which was causing that pain!

Halfway into the 34th week, she forewent giving me the fetal fibronectin test again.  She told me that, at this point, if I were to go into labor, they would just deliver the baby.  So…at this point, we are simply in a waiting game for Amelia to make her grand entrance into this world!

Jonathan is planning on working on the baby’s room this weekend, painting and moving the new furniture in.

I have taken the daunting task of washing all of her clothes.  We are SO GOOD on clothes, its not even funny!  I think we have enough to get her into, if not through, the winter months!

I’ll post soon with pics of the nursery for all of the curious minds out there!

34 Weeks and Counting

July 13, 2011 Leave a comment

As of Sunday, we crossed the 34 week mark and each day is a better day that Amelia stays inside!

I know I’ve been short on blogging recently, but long story short, we have been in the hospital three times in the last three weeks for contractions.

After this last go-round, they finally sent me home with some prescription meds to stop contractions as need.

I am also on bedrest, so that means that I stay home every day – for the most part – while Noah has started daycare / preschool

Needless to say, I still have contractions everyday – in varying degrees.

We did go ahead and get a round of steroid shots, as well, to stimulate her lung function, just in case she does decide to come a bit early. My guess….before August….but who knows!

Here is my plump belly at 34 weeks measuring in at 41″ around:









Just keep us in your prayers – for mine and Amelia’s health and Jonathan’s sanity – while we finish out this pregnancy and wait for our little girl to arrive!

Jonathan’s Big Endeavor

May 24, 2011 Leave a comment

When we moved into our home, there was an opening between our master bedroom and the office….weird.

So, Jonathan took on this project recently doing everything from recreating the studs, to building the drywall, mudding, texturing and ultimately painting the new wall.

Here is the great job he did – spoken in pictures.

How proud we are of him!
