20 days?!?! You're kidding, right?

I just glanced at my ticker and realized...3 weeks minus one day is 20 days...20 days! Of course, I might not make it that long but we'll see. Last night at about 1 I started feeling really crampy and got a little worried. I tried to go back to sleep but that just wasn't happening so I got up, went to the bathroom, then got some water and read a pregnancy book for about an hour. After that I felt better and the crampy feeling started to go away so I did end up getting back to sleep. The bad part was that I had to be up early to get to work by 8 so I'm pretty tired today.

Chris came into town this afternoon. He and Bob are going to see the new Batman movie tonight. I heard it was really good! Too bad I have to be the babysitter. Oh well, maybe Oliver and I will watch a movie, too. Of course, if we do it'll be a Baby Einstein one...woohoo. I'm supposed to figure out where we are having dinner tonight. I have no idea! Someone suggested a new place called Jennifer's in Friendly Center. If we go there I'll post a review.

Other than that everything is normal. I still haven't gotten emails back from Mom OR Dad in response to the stuff I sent them.

Mom - did you get the directions?!?!

Dad - did you get the suggestions?!?!?!

I ordered a Happy Heiny diaper for Oliver because he kept asking for a red diaper and the BumGenius only comes in white, blue, green, yellow and pink. I like the wide velcro tabs but the liner seemed to bunch up more than the BG did. The second time I tried it was a little better so maybe I had it in the wrong the first time. I really like those wide velcro tabs - maybe I can figure it out and get some assortment of colors too. If anyone else is looking to get me something I'd like an orange one, a royal blue one, a lime one, a peach one - any of the bright colors, really. The other good thing about the HH diaper was that it came with two inserts. One for the smallest size and another that fits all the other sizes. Of course, the new BG 3.0 comes with two inserts as well...and they are about the same price. Anyway, if anyone's still looking for a gift we really NEED this is it!! With both boys in diapers I'm going to need a lot more than the 13 I have. (although hopefully Oliver will be out of diapers soon!!)

playing in the new pool...

Bob picked up a little plastic pool at Home Depot yesterday. It fills up pretty quickly and Oliver just loved it. He had lots of fun pouring water on his head! He also played with his watering can. There was a toy boat with a little pirate in it (thanks Aunt Rachael adn Uncle Dave) but he mostly used the boat to guessed it! ...pour water on his head.

all about the appt

We got in pretty quick for the ultrasound. Bob and Oliver came with me. We got to see Roy standing on his head. Oliver got restless toward the end so Bob took him back out into the waiting area while we finished up. She said everything looks good, everything is normal...the amount of fluid, the heartbeat, all the organs, she even confirmed (again) that he's a boy.

After the ultrasound we went in to see the dr. We waited a good long time, but remember how much I didn't like the last dr? Well this guy was fantastic! He came in and introduced himself to all of us (even Oliver) first, then he showed Oliver a book about babies in bellies. Then it was down to business - my strep b test was negative, as were the other tests they did for STD's. He said the ultrasound looked great, as did my blood pressure and my labwork. He looked at my sugar readings and said I was doing a great job (he looked at this week AND last week - the same ones the other lady looked at and said weren't so good). I gave him my birth plan and he said everything on there was totally fine, but did have a few suggestions (such as starting an IV but not putting anything in it just in case they need one for an emergency situation...i don't really want one, but I see why it is a good idea) We went over everything...he told us WHY things were done a certain way instead of just telling us that's the way it was. Oh yeah! He also said I can start testing 2 times a day instead of 3!!! Once in the morning before eating and once 2 hours after dinner. Hooray!!

I had a few questions which he answered and made me feel better about things in general. I really really liked this guy!! Anyway, everything's good and Roy is in position for launch! I scheduled my two appointments for next week but we'll see if I end up needing them...hehehehe!


Roy is standing on his head!! More info about the appt later, for now I'm off to celebrate with Mexican food!!!

sick of it!!

I'm tired of being pregnant. Tired of waddling around with this huge belly. I'm sick of dr's appointments and getting poked and prodded.

I'm so ready for Roy to get here, but not really ready because there's still so much to do. I need to get the house cleaned up for guests. I need to make a place to put the bassinet. I need MORE DIAPERS! I need to wash the stuff from the attic. I need to install the car seat. I want to find time to cook some meals and put them in the freezer but that probably won't happen. I want to do so many things but it seems like I'm always so tired. I don't sleep well at night anymore because of the frequent pee breaks.

Speaking of which - Last night I had a dream that I was eating cake with strawberries and cherries on it. All things I'm not supposed to have. GRRR! Then I was trying to get frogs off my (younger) sister while she was in the shower...weird.

Anyway, tomorrow is the ultrasound to see if Roy is standing on his head yet. Let's all pray that he is!!!
