Another Doctor Visit

It feels like I should be done with these doctor visits. I can't believe that I still technically have 2 weeks left. I was really hoping that he would come early. We still have time that he can be early, but it is getting really hard. Today was my last day of work, so that will help me a lot. I can really get ready for when he does come. It is hard not to organize now. I want to clean and get ready now, but I also don't want to clean everything and have nothing to do for 2-3 weeks. I just need to find a hobby. Any suggestions?

The doctor told me today that I am still the same. I have not changed. I am still 1.5 cm dialated and 75% effaced. It is disappointing hearing that news, but it might be because he just isn't ready yet. I know things happen for a reason and I need to remember that. I kind of hope he doesn't come this weekend anyway because my doctor is going out of town. I really want my doctor to deliver Cameron. That is part of the reason for us going up to Sandy all the time, but I guess when he is ready, he is ready. We will see what happens next week at the next visit. Hopefully some better news.

This cooler weather has been great for me. Being pregnant during the summer isn't fun, with the heat. The next time we do get pregnant (which won't be for a while), we will try to get pregnant at the end of the summer so I can be warm during the winter. That won't happen for a while though, so we won't worry about that until the time comes.

Anyway, I can't believe the first day of fall is next week on Tuesday. I am excited to see the leaves change colors and the season come into bloom, but I really hope it doesn't go by too fast. I am not ready for winter yet. I am really enjoying the sunshine and I am not ready for it to go away. I think mostly what I am excited for is decorating. I LOVE to decorate. I am ready for the holidays so I can decorate. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are my favorites. I wish they had more for Thanksgiving, but I will just have to buy one thing at a time until it all adds up; that is what my mom told me to do :)

On another note, I went to the doctor again today. I am at my weekly visits. It helps the time go by fast for me. I am now 1.5 cm dialated and 70% effaced. The doctor is saying that he could come in the next couple of weeks. I guess we will see if it is true or not. He doesn't think I will be late. I am ready for him to come. It has been a hard, long pregnancy, but I know it will be worth it. I am excited to be a mom and I know Tyler is excited to become a dad.

I will keep you posted on what is happening. Hopefully something really exciting happens soon :D

35 Weeks!!!

I am officially 8 months pregnant! I am glad that I am closer to the due date. It has been a rough pregnancy, but I know it will be worth it. We are ready to meet him and see what he looks like.

We are definitely in the uncomfortable stage of the pregnancy. It is getting harder to sleep at night, my feet swell very easily, and the worst part is the heartburn. It seems like anything and everything I eat and sometimes drink, I get heartburn. I am looking forward to the day when this all goes away, mostly the heartburn. I know I won't sleep ever again, but I can handle that. I just hope the heartburn goes away. I don't want this, at least until the next pregnancy, but that will be a while.

We did go to the doctor. He check to see if he has turned yet and also if I am dialated. This is something he will be checking every week now. I didn't think that I would be anything this early, but I guess I am already 1 cm dialated and 60% effaced. He told me not to get too excited because I can stay like this until my due date. I am just glad that I am dialated a little bit. At least it is better than nothing. :)

We will continue to go every week and see what happens. We will be happy no matter what. We just want a healthy boy....and of course me to be healthy ;)
