30 weeks!

Yikes! Coming into the home stretch, as everyone likes to tell

Just had another good OB appointment...BP is still great (110/72), protein is fine, and I lost a pound. I'm measuring normal and A's heartbeat is good (148). Back in 2 weeks.

Still making progress in the nursery...I'm not ready for pics yet though...still have some things to hang on the walls.

Moving right along...

Showered with love

My baby shower was yesterday, and it was so much fun! I can't believe how generous everyone was...we were completely overwhelmed with all the gifts we received. It reminded us once again how lucky we are, and how blessed Annabella is.

Now we just have to figure out where to put everything! :)

Busy day for Baby A!

Two doctor appointments today!

First, the OB. She addressed my cankles and said, "it is what it is...and it'll only get worse!" No concern since my BP is fine (110/72) and so is the protein in my urine. Plus I didn't gain any weight. So, my swelling is nothing more than an eyesore...which is good news!

We will be scheduling my c-section in about a month. It'll either be the last week in August or Sept. 2nd. Time will tell.

Then, off to the high risk doctor this afternoon. Grandma came along and got to see A for the first time! Too bad she was camera shy (AGAIN) but there was no mistaking the big patch of thick hair on the back of her head. Uh oh.

She's measuring at about the 70th percentile which is fine, according to them...and weighs 3 lbs. 4 oz. Yikes!

All in all it was a good day...A was on her best behavior :) Back for more in 2 weeks. Hopefully the good news will continue...

The furniture is here!

Talk about making everything seem soooo real...our former office is now a nursery! Wow.

I won't take pics yet since it's just bare furniture in an otherwise empty room...but after my shower this weekend I should have lots to fill it up with :)

Holy heatwave!

I can't believe how hot it's been! I've been trying to get out at least a little while each day, but for the most part I've been home in the AC. We got VERY lucky...there was a HUGE power outage in our area and somehow we escaped it.

Annabella took her first swim on Sunday...we went to my cousin's house and swam in her new pool. It was felt awesome. I see a lot more pools in my future in the next few months...LOL. It's great to feel so weightless, and COOL!

Off to dinner...we're taking advantage of our 'freedom' as much as we possibly can before our arrival, which we know will be here before we know it :)

Taking it easy this week

After seeing my OB on Monday and the look of fright on her face after seeing my feet and ankles, I thought it'd be best to take it easy for a while (she recommended the same). I haven't really done much besides run a few errands, and I went to the movies last night.

I have been able to get more done around the house though...A's closet is clear of everything except her stuff (and she's got quite a wardrobe already) and I purged some more of my things. The nursery furniture is being delivered on the 17th. We're making progress!

Let's see how I survive this upcoming weekend of 95 degree days. Like I've said before, I'd do anything for a pool right now...

Exhausted is an understatement.

I can't get over how tired I am today. Our nieces were here yesterday and slept over...honestly, we spent the majority of the time at our neighbor's house for a BBQ, but for some reason I am WIPED today. Guess it didn't help that I had a few nightmares and didn't sleep well :(

Anyway, this is what a tired, hot, swollen, miserable 26 week pregnant woman looks like, incase you're interested...LOL. Frank took this pic a few hours ago after we got home from brunch and I've been on the couch ever since.
