35 Weeks, Ultrasound and Pictures!

I am officially PAST 35 weeks, which is when I delivered Tyler via emergency c-section! This is new territory for me and it's pretty exciting! When the baby moves (which is very often) you can see it from the outside and my whole belly moves! It's amazing and weird at the same time. I am feeling great and honestly think we're going to keep baking this baby until my c-section date, NO earlier!

My ultrasound last Friday went great! Brooke and Tyler came along with me and it was really fun sharing that experience with her. Tyler was a good boy too...he sat on the bed with me for part of it, which was so cute! The ultrasound tech said everything is going good and he is about 5 pounds. We saw a good shot of his face and he has the chubbiest little cheeks!! I think this is going to be my last ultrasound so I was happy to be able to see his face again since it's so hard to get a good shot the bigger they get. She also asked me a really weird question - I've never seen this tech before and she says, "Did the other techs say anything about him having a big head and short legs?" LOL! I said, "NO!" Then she looked back at her measurements of his legs and compared them to the other measurements that have been taken and decided one of hers must have been off so she changed it to another one. It was weird! The radiologist must have thought the number she switched it to was ok because she didn't have to take any new measurements. Next appointment is Thursday morning to drop off my last 24 hour urine sample (YAY!) and have blood drawn, have a non-stress test and see Dr. S.

Here are a few new pictures from the summer so far!
Thumbs up on the Looney 'Toon!

34 Weeks

This morning's dr appt went great! Blood pressure was 106/70 something...Amazing! :-) No protein in my urine either! Dr. S. was really happy and I can't even say how relieved I am after every one of these appointments. We are going to GO.ALL.THE.WAY!! My c-section is now planned for July 13th in the morning. Sprout gets to share a birthday with his GiGi P and he will be exactly 3 years and 4 days younger than Tyler! Another bonus is Daddy can go to work while we are in the hospital for 4 days after the c-section and then only has to take time off when we are home. It should work out great! I was given permission to take Benadryl for my cold symptoms. It seems to be getting better, but I can't wait to take some tonight and hopefully SLEEP. My next ultrasound is June 19th to check the baby's growth and my next appt with Dr S is June 25th.

I had to share this cartoon today from my's too true! Especially since I discovered this weekend that I can no longer see my feet and haven't been able to breathe for months now! :-)

Yuckies, Part 2

Sorry my update took a while!

Tyler saw his dr about his cold and everything was looking clear. No infections anywhere so we were happy to hear that! She said his cough was good and actually (of course) by the time I decided to take him in he was clearing up!

As for me, I think I hit the worst of it on Saturday. I am sleeping in the lazy boy tonight because I just can't sleep laying down. Propping myself up with pillows like I normally do with a cold is out of the question...have you ever tried sleeping on your side on two pillows? Not so good! :-) Sleeping on my back is out of the question because my legs/feet go numb from the pressure on my spine. So hopefully my sinuses clear up SOON!

Tyler has a nasty cold (which he so kindly shared with ME!) so we are going to see his doctor this morning. It started this weekend when he got sick in his bed and had a temperature of 101. He kicked the temp by Sunday, but now has a horrible rattling cough and a runny nose. There have been a couple times he's coughed so hard he got sick. (Three times yesterday.)

I will update today to let everyone know how he's doing and if I'm going to go in too!

Tyler's BIG BOY Room!

Here are some of the pictures of Tyler's new big boy room! Thankfully, our friends Mindy and Ron were able to come help us out for the weekend. Mindy did ALL of the painting, which turned out SO cute!! I can't say thank you enough and neither can Tyler. He loves his new room! (And had no trouble sleeping in there either!)
