Pregnancy Update ~ 40 Weeks

Yep, I'm still pregnant. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and still absolutely nothing. The doctor did a NST and everything looked fine. They also did another ultrasound. Baby is still head down, fluid level is good and she weighs approximately 8lbs 4oz. I was not expecting to have a child that size! I go back Thursday morning. My doctor says he is not sure an induction will be successful because of how high up baby is. In the beginning I was totally against induction, now I am starting to consider it. I would at least like to try it before resorting to a c-section. It would suck to have a section for my last child!

Still here...

I made it through Adi's dance revue!! I'm still waiting for something, anything to happen with this baby! My due date is in 3 days so hopefully soon. I feel like there is so much I should be getting done but my brain is so frazzled I don't know where to start. Sorry this post is so short, I am uncomfortable sitting. Now that I think about it I am uncomfortable doing just about anything. I know it's all worth it in the end and things will happen in due time. Have a great weekend!

39 Weeks Down ~ 1 To Go *hopefully*

Almost to the end! I thought last night was it though. I started having contractions at 6:30pm. They were pretty consistent but not very strong, just strong enough to catch me off guard. This went on until 1:30am. At that point I fell asleep. I know that babies will come on THEIR schedule, no one elses but I'm really hoping I make it to Adi's dance revue. Piggy says she would be more excited about having a baby sister. I don't think I could ever forgive myself if I missed it.

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday morning. The doctor said the baby is still REALLY high. He did an ultrasound to make sure the baby was head down. In his words, I'm pretty sure it is but I don't want any surprises. The baby IS head down. Its head is on my left hip bone and his behind is in my right ribs. Hopefully baby moves over just a little and 'falls' into my pelvis. I go back first thing Thursday morning to check and see if anything is happening.

Today is part 2 of dress rehearsal. I'm going to try and get the kids overnight bags packed and all of the daily chores done early this morning. That way, even if I don't go into labor in the next few days it will all be done.

I guess I took an unintentional blogging break. Piggy got home Easter Sunday in the late afternoon. Since then we have been finishing up the last minute 'to dos' before baby comes as well as enjoying our last few days as a family of 4.

Thursday KK started with a nasty cough and stuffy nose, he has since infected the entire house. Adi got over it pretty quickly. He is still suffering. I woke up with it yesterday and it seems it got to Piggy yesterday evening.

Hopefully we will all be better before baby comes! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. I will be 39 weeks Tuesday, hoping for SOME progress but not too much. Adi's first dance revue is Wednesday night. Anytime after that would be great! :)

I plan on trying to post our weekly menu tomorrow morning. It will be rather simple since we have dress rehearsals Monday and Tuesday night then the revue Wednesday night. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and to those of you who live near me, don't go crazy with the kids cooped up in the house!!! (I don't know about your yard but ours is SOAKED!)

Works For Me ~ Making Lists

Lists work for me! I'm sure this has been blogged about thousands of times! I am a visual person so it helps me to see exactly what needs to be done. I also feel a sense of accomplishment when I get to scratch something off :)
Here's my list for today:
  • get all laundry done, including bedding (I've been a little lazy about washing clothes the past two days)
  • clear all clutter off desk
  • sweep and mop floors
  • clean bathrooms
  • switch out winter and spring clothes (not sure about this yet, the weather has been CRAZY)
  • fill Easter eggs for hunt
  • sterilize bottles
  • start packing for hospital
I just realized that seems like a lot of things to get done TODAY. Maybe I'm overly ambitious. OR maybe, just maybe I'm nesting??

37 Weeks

I thought I had set this to autopost yesterday afternoon but apparently I saved it as a draft instead.

Thirty seven weeks today! Still nothing happening though. I went to the doctor yesterday he said the baby is still high. There's a full moon later this week so maybe that will help bring her down? I think I'm A LOT bigger than I was last week, I'm not sure what the deal is!

Oh and just for laughs my son came in while I was taking my belly pic. He decided that I needed to take one of the baby in his tummy too.

For Piggy To See

BTW if you don't like being called Piggy tell me what to call you!

Adi & KK checking out the baby sheep at MawMaw's house.

Looking at the sheep again

The watermelon plant Adi came home from school with today.

Corn plants. I watered this afternoon and and the ground is cracked already!

Pea plants. You can tell the kids helped you plant. There are random plants popping up in the grass around the row.

Strawberries we picked today.

Your freakishly big yellow BABY chicks.

The kids wanted to take a picture while eating ice.
Blogger doesn't want me let me change the picture placement. ARGH!

Monday ~ homemade pizza

Tuesday ~ crockpot chicken

Wednesday ~ leftovers

Thursday ~ homemade chicken tenders and french fries

Friday ~ shrimp and butter sauce (didn't get to cook this last week)

Backwards WFMW

This week is a backwards themed edition of Works For Me Wednesday. We are supposed to post about a dilemma we have. This is my dilemma:

Do you see it???

Look a little closer, notice what's missing?!

Now, we rent so I don't have many options.

I would love to try out this option:

But I have a feeling that wouldn't go over so well with the breakables.

There are also these two options:

The smaller of the two isn't very practical.

The bigger, I tried that but I ended up redoing everything.

I guess for the time being I'll just have to do it myself won't I?
BTW: If you haven't figured it out, we don't have a dishwasher! :)
