Baby Update

Sorry, this really isn't exciting.
But we have a strong baby boy who loves to move around all night and all day (making it very hard for his mommy to sleep at night).
He is currently, head-down, a good place to be,
but I really don't think he will stay that way for long.
There is always some part of my belly that is poking out in a weird way,
so the odds of him staying head-down for the next eight weeks isn't likely. But what do I know.
Heart is around 150 bpm, which is great!
I think he has been in the 150's from day one.

My weight gain is.......
yeah right, there is no way I am telling, let's just say more than I wanted!
I only have 8 weeks left, hooray!
I am sure that this will be the longest/shortest 8 weeks of our lives.
We are probably horrible, we have yet to start baby preparations. We haven't rearranged the bedroom, or done really thorough cleaning or even bought anything yet. I think in some ways it makes pregnancy longer when you sit there looking at a crib for months on end, waiting for your little bundle of joy to fill it.

We bought a diaper bag, and we have a swing that my sister gave us along with some clothes to borrow and zac bought like three outfits at work the other day.
Yep, that's it, all of our preparation amounts to that.
Honestly, Zac hasn't wanted to buy anything, he is a
kind of person. Like all of the sudden I won't be pregnant anymore and we won't have to buy anything :). If I go into labor early, this baby will probably come home with nothing.
Hopefully I can convince Zac to get a carrier/car seat in the next few weeks, or we will have nothing to bring him home in, and he will be stuck at the hospital! haha

But, I am dying to hold my little boy.
I cannot wait, I have always loved babies and it seems surreal to think that this one will be mine. I will get to hold him whenever I want, instead of being polite and waiting for others.
I can be as selfish as I want, and I am so happy. I am in my last semester of school, and instead of counting down until the end, all I can think about is waiting to hold my baby.
Don't get me wrong, I am terrified to death! I am scared of labor, of not knowing what to do, not having everything he needs, knowing what to teach him, and so much more!
Yet, I am so grateful as I think of the blessing I am being given to be a mother.


  1. Those last few months are hard, I remember how much pain I was in and how uncomfortable everything was. Just hang in there and he will be here before you know it. As far as labor goes...I was scared to death too, so much so that I didn't even want to take the birthing classes because that just meant I really had to go through labor. LOL Yeah I know doesn't make sense. Anyhow, just listen the the dr and nurses and your will be just fine. The actual delivery was the best part of the entire thing for me, from pregnancy to labor. And you will get LOTS of great and needed items at your baby shower in a week. I am hoping I can make it up there. So hopefully we will see you soon.

  2. your having a baby shower right? i'll buy you baby something!

  3. All the men told Bobby that he would get the most sleep with the baby inside mom's tummy. For me I got much more sleep when Richie was out of my tummy. Babies always seem to be moving when you are trying to sleep. Don't worry about the labor. After 9 months of miserable you know that the labor is the end and that makes it easier. Even now I know that if I can survive the pregnancy the labor is easy. Just get a car seat, everything else can wait until the baby comes. We love you and hope you have an easy 8 weeks.

  4. This sounds so strange, but I loved my labor experience. As for the not being prepared thing: I think I was finishing the nursery the day before we had Brooklyn. It will all come together before you know it.

  5. Wow 8 weeks left!! That is super exciting. I can't really give you any pointers since I am only 7 weeks along, but I know that everything will be alright. I'm so excited for you and Zac.
