What to Look Forward to at the Next Doctor Visit (4/27): I’m hoping I won’t be going to my next visit but if I do…I hope to find out I’m more dilated than 2cm and another membrane strip…

Total Weight Gain/Loss:+Maternity Clothes: ~36 lbs no change from last week – woo hoo!

Gender: It’s a GIRL; name will be chosen when we see her!

Please – keep suggesting names…we really don’t decide until we meet her…

Movement: I can definitely feel feet and knees…sort of weird…

Sleep: pretty terrible – but I’m starting to things done in the middle of the night…

What I miss: champagne, beer, being able to walk without pain, sleeping on my back, my ankles

Cravings: nothing really – I’m tired of eating in general

Symptoms: heartburn, terrible hips, ridiculously emotional, an enlarged stomach, anxious

Best Moment of the Week: Jared, the girls and I have been walking the orchard a lot lately.  I’m really enjoying all this family time together.  Watching the girls just run and being able to chat casually with Jared has been so nice.  We are all so ready to start the next phase of our little family.  Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a planner – all this waiting and not knowing is literally driving me crazy!

Still time to get in on the Baby Pool!


  1. Hi baby. It's time to come out now. Well actually it was the other day according to my guess. tee hee hee. Don't do like my babies and stay in an extra week or I'll have to teach your mommy how to kick you out.

  2. Oh you look so cute. Congratulations! I like the name, Rhyan for a girl.

  3. I love your updates! It reminds me of 28 and 30 years ago... Wow! How time flies! I am wishing for sooner rather, than later as that would be wonderful!
