Happy Thanksgiving...

The boys spent the day fishing. Drew was super excited to finally get out on the boat. Susie and I watched The Thorn Birds (meow) while the turkey cooked.
Our little turkey hasn't arrived yet.
I'm thankful I was able to eat turkey dinner at home rather than in the hospital.
Thank you Owen.
You can come out now though....seriously.

40 weeks

Today is our due date.
This picture is a perfect representation of how I feel today.
I am a ball of cranky, uncomfortable moodiness.
Went to the doctor today. Nothing has happened.
The baby has not dropped and my cervix is closed tight.
They made me stay on a heart monitor for thirty minutes to make sure the baby is ok.
He is doing fine. He is super comfy.
I have had a headache since last night. I think that is adding to the cranky.
I'm hoping its hormones but I feel like punching someone for no reason.
My mom and I went to the grocery store after my appointment, and I had a REALLY strong urge to kick this random man while he was kneeling in front of a display.
Seriously...for no reason.
I'm at home drinking a vanilla shake now...feeling much better.

Still no baby.
We are taking daily walks to help move the process along.
Ive been feeling like super poop since Saturday night.
Crampy and moody.
I'm hoping these are signs that sweet Owen is on his way.
40 week check up is tomorrow morning.
I will keep everyone posted.

Obsessed and hairy...

I have completely lost my husband to fishing. Its all he wants to do when he gets off work.
Completely obsessed.
He is also being superstitious. He has decided to not shave his beard until Owen is born.

39 weeks...

Today is exactly one week from my due date.

Owen is never coming out.

Went to the doctor today...still no labor progress.
He said I still could go into labor at anytime though.
The belly is ridiculous.
People stare...its pretty funny.

I told Owen he has to try and wait till after Saturday to come.
This is because his mom is a super dork and she really wants to
go see a cheesy vampire movie (twilight) before she goes into labor.

Something very very very special...

My lovely, wonderful (greatly missed) friend Michelle sent me a package. In it was a handmade baby blanket and handmade little knit cap (with ears!!) that mean the world to me. Words can not express how much I love them. I feel like we have talked about Michelle making us baby blankets since we were in high school. I am really very excited to finally have mine. It is soft and lovely, and I will always think of you when Owen is snuggled in it.
In addition to the handmade goodies, Michelle spoiled me by throwing in the cutest elephant, onesie and tshirt that I CAN NOT wait till Owen is big enough to wear. Thank you oh so much.
I love you.

38 weeks

Yup...I'm still pregnant.
I had an exam yesterday and nothing has happened yet.
Owen is quite cozy and doesn't want to come out.
Doctor said he already has an estimated weight of 8 pounds.
They will let me go to 42 weeks before they try to induce.
Hopefully he will come sooner than later.
I would really like to NOT give birth to a 12 pound baby (frightening).
I'm feeling pretty good. I usually have a burst of energy when I wake up in the morning, and then get tired and sluggish thru out the day. Lots of weird pelvic pressure and pain but no contractions yet. I also wake up every two hours thru the night to go to the bathroom. That is really annoying, but its kind of cool how my body already has me in training for nightly feedings.

Just fishing...

Drew caught his first grouper yesterday. It was a beautiful fish but a little too small and had to be thrown back. The tiny fish he is taking off the hook is a mangrove snapper. We catch a bunch of these out of the canal, and then my dad uses them to make the stock for his fish chowder. Super yummy.

37 weeks (Big Momma)

Here is my belly at full term. We are officially ready to go at anytime...although most baby's come week 40 (or later). I gained 5 pounds last week. The nurse made me get on the scale again because she didn't believe that I jumped from 162 to 167 in a week. I officially weigh more than Drew now...that is really weird. The only good thing is that if Drew gets out of line I can sit on him, and there is nothing he can do about it.

There is nothing better then being able to completely relax your last trimester of pregnancy. Especially being able to do so with your own mommy...before you become one.
Being in paradise doesn't hurt either.
