35 Weeks!

Only 5 more weeks to go! Hopefully less! As of last night, I am 1 cm dilated and 50% efaced, the nurse said there was no way I would make it to my due date, so that makes me happy! I am pretty swollen in my hands, legs, and feet and my BP is a little high, AND I have some protein in my urine, so they are watching me since I may have preeclampsia! Other than that, Parker is doing great, kicking like crazy as always! I am having contractions, but usually no more than 3 an hour...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I am so blessed to have a wonderful family to spend it with! We are going to grandpa's around 3 or 4, and I'm excited about all of that yummy food!! I can't believe that Christmas is a month away, hopefully I will have my greatest Christmas present ever by then!

32 Weeks... and 4D U/S Pictures!

In 2 short days I will be 32 weeks pregnant... that means only 8 more weeks to go! It seems crazy to think that next month I will be a mommy... I can't wait! His room is all done, except for the changing table is not fully assembled! We discovered a piece missing while putting it together and we are still waiting for it to get here...Other than that, we have everything we need for him which is a relief! I will post pictures of his room after I get the changing table together. My last day of school is December 8th, so I will hopefully catch up on some rest before Parker's arrival. I don't have to be back at school until February 1st so that will be a nice long break, although I am sure I won't want to go back!

Here are Parker's 4D Ultrasound pictures that we had taken about a month ago, I was 28 weeks pregnant then and it seems just like yesterday, so I hope that time continues to fly!

We think he is trying to suck his thumb here

His mouth is open in this one! So CooL!

Here he is sleeping peacefully!

The Baby Shower

We had the Baby Shower on September 20th, and it went wonderful! I honestly couldn't have asked for a better shower! We are so blessed to have so many people that wanted to give Parker gifts! Here are a few pictures! This is me with the gorgeous cake! Everyone seemed to like it!

And this is the diaper cake that Lisa Gibbs and Vicki made for us!

And last but not least, the quilt that Gloria Fraulini and Lisa Sauerhage had made for Parker!

I will be posting pictures of his room soon, we got it painted and all set up now so all we have to do is wait... for 3 more months! Ahh! I'm hoping with the holidays that it will just fly by, right? =)

24 Weeks tomorrow!!

Well, I haven't been very good with keeping up with the blog, I'll try to do better! Tomorrow I will be at 24 Weeks (6 months)and I can't believe it! I am soo ready to meet Parker! I have a doctor appointment this afternoon to meet Dr. Gates, he is the doctor that will deliver Parker if I go into labor and my Dr. is not there or on call. THEN in a few weeks I have to get the glucose testing to make sure that I do not have gestational diabetes... Other than that, nothing new is really going on. Matt is on vacation with his family in New Orleans this week, I wasn't able to go since I have school but that is okay because I was able to go to Florida last month and he wasn't able to go because he had to work!  Here are the latest pics of Parker from the 21 week ultrasound

And here are his long legs!!

And the most important part, definite PROOF that he is a boy!! hehe

In other news, my sister got engaged!!! WOO HOO!! I am going to have a brother in law! And Parker is going to have another Uncle! So that is exciting, they are going to get married in Destin, FL next summer so that should be a fun time! =) I think that is all the news I have for now, I will try my hardest to keep this more updated!

I can't believe I haven't posted this yet, just been very busy! We got to find out on the 16th that we are having a little boy! He is sooo sweet, he was jumping around all over the place! The ultrasound tech said that he has really long legs, but she couldn't do any measurments since it was just an elective ultrasound to find out the gender ( I will get the measurement u/s in a couple of weeks) I love him sooo much! We are all very excited, I believe we are going to name him Parker James... I never knew how stressful it would be picking out a NAME for someone... that is a big deal! But we both love the name and agree on it and I think it will be great for him throughout his whole life! I hope he likes it! =) Here is our beautiful little boy!

Here is his little profile!

Our Family Blog!

I decided to create a blog before the baby gets here, so that I will be used to it and I will try to keep everyone updated! We have officially moved into our house in Benton, I love it! I'm working 40 hours a week right now and not getting paid!! (clinicals) But the upside is, I will be graduated in 10 months and actually making money for doing this! I am going to post a pic here on my first ultrasound, this was May 13th so I was only 7 weeks pregnant, you can't really tell that it's even a baby but it is, the heartrate was 138 BPM. Here is the picture!
On the 16th I am going to find out if I'm having a girl or boy! I can't wait, we are all soo excited! I will definitely post the u/s picture of that and tell everyone if it's a boy or girl. I'll be happy with either! I do keep having dreams that it is a boy though! I had one girl dream but all the rest were boy! I guess we will see on Thursday! =) That is all the updates I have for now!
