My Dr.'s apt. went well yesterday.

The Dr. said that I was dialated to a 2 and %50.

It was music to my ears. I can't wait to be done and hold my little sweetheart.

It is supposed to be 100 degrees today. UG!

I am running my errands early to try to avoid the heat.

Last night was a tough one. I think I had more contractions than ever before with this pregnancy. I might have gotten excited, but I don't come early. At least not 3weeks early. It made for a sleepless night.

But I'll hang onto my "2" and keep smiling.

P.s. does anyone know how to get ride of this dumb photobucket thingy that has popped up? It is driving me crazy, and I don't know how to get rid of it.

Dr.'s Apt.

I am hoping to report some progress.

My body sure feels like I'm ready to have this baby.

I'll let ya know how it goes.

Cross your fingers for me.

The rain

Today I woke to grey skies. Soon the rain came in. Hard and fast. I sat on the couch and watched it pound down. It was awesome. It seemed like a gift from Heaven. The days have been hot and long, not to mention uncomfortable. It was so soothing to hear the rain pound down, and just relax. It has been hard to keep my spirits up all the time when I am so miserable, so this was a nice change.

My Dr.'s apt. went well. Our little one is head down and looking good. It just seems like forever before she will get here. The Dr. didn't check to see if I was dialated. Not that I really wanted to go through the fun of that, I just was hoping for some sign of progress. Each night I get a contraction every time I roll over. (which is a lot!) My carpal tunnel is getting worse, and even though I am wearing the ugly spints on my wrists all day and night, I am still waking up with tingling and pain. I am so ready to be done!!

I am teaching the lesson on Job this week in Sunday school. Ironic timing. It's a good reminder for me.

As I was catching up with everyone's blogs this morning, I realized that it has been 11 days since I posted. I still can't download pictures on the computer, and the laptop is still dead. So, I guess I will update without pic's. Just use your imagination!

Right now I am killing time waiting to go to my Dr.'s appointment. Today should be our final ultra-sound. I am hoping everything looks good. They have been worried about my placenta being low lying. I would also love to hear again that we are having a girl. Somehow, I don't think that a boy would appreciate the pink and white room I've prepared for this new babe.

We went to Brennan's hockey game last night. Soon after it started he got a stick to the neck. I of course screamed involuntarily. He got up, skated off the ice, rubbing his neck, but seemed okay. I had a huge pit in my stomach for the rest of the game. I have never really been worried about his safety before last night. It stinks. He played well, and after the game showed us his awful mark on his neck. My baby! I don't think hockey games are good places for preggo mommies. I am just way too emotional!

School starts soon, and I can hardly wait. McKinley will be starting Jr. High and Brennan will be starting High School. How on earth did this happen?? Well I'm off to get ready for the Dr.'s appointment. Wish me luck. I'll let you know how it goes.

What's up

Wow! It has been a long time. Sorry I've been MIA, things have been crazy, and my laptop is toast, so I'll have to wait to download some pic's. Here are some of the things I've been up to....

1. Driving down to St. George, arriving at 1:30 A.M. only to find someone else sleeping in the condo a friend was letting us use! We ended up checking into a motel (yuck) around two in the morning. It was about 91 degrees outside, and when I walked into the room I was hit with a blast of heat. It must have been at least 110 degrees, seriously! Not a good night.

2. I went to my Twenty-Year High School reunion last week being hugely pregnant, and the size of a bus. Nothing like looking your best for a reunion! (I almost didn't go, but decided I didn't care if I was effecting the gravitational pull of the earth, I would go anyhow. I'm glad I did.)

3. Went to Moab with Will for work. Long drive, but the company couldn't be beat! We almost ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere, and it was HOT! Thank goodness for small miracles.

4. Watched Brennan play in two Varsity Hockey games. He looked great! (Pictures to come!)

5. Had the ceiling fan break, my bed break, a flood in the basement due to a busted pipe, (carpet is still ripped up) and two cars in the shop.

6. Dealing with carpal tunnel in both my wrists due to the pregnancy. I have to wear splints on both all day and night. Not a whole lot of fun. It hit 4th of July weekend, so I've been wearing them for over a month now. They are so pretty! Also, if I paint my feet green, I think I could be a foot double for the next Shrek movie. By the end of the day they are huge. Seriously ginormous. Ah the joys of pregnancy.

7. Counting days, only 40 more!
