Well last week on Wednesday we had another Dr's appt. I had not dilated anymore, but I have thinned out quite a bit. Dr. H told me that Bree is still moving way too much, still head down, but she is moving up and down causing me to contract with not much dilation =(. So in other words, little butterball is killing me without progressing!!! (Owen did the same exact thing, so this is no surprise) So just imagine a 6lb (or bigger, not sure) kiddo bouncing up and down inside you, good times I tell you =). He pretty much told me to seriously take it easy and just prepare for the 20th...not the 21st. They changed my C-section date to the 20th from the 21st. You see, I had put much thought into this date and I was pretty upset that it had changed. Claire starts school on the 19th so I wanted us to be able to take her the first 2 days. Then have Bree on a Friday, be in the hospital all weekend and get home and get back to normal the following week. As well, the 20th is our nephew Clayton's bday. So I had a mini meltdown in the dr's office, but my Dr is not working that Friday and we may end up changing things a bit, like the time she is born so we can maybe still take Claire to school or Mom can and not miss the birth of Bree. But right now, she is for sure going to be here by the 20th - IN 17 DAYS!! Before I felt like she was going to make an earlier appearance, but I am pretty sure now that she is going to hold out until then. What can I say, my kids like to be dramatic =)!! We are sooooooo ready!!! I feel okay as long as I am just sitting around and not doing much. Once I start going, pushing myself at all, I start feeling terrible and contracting. So, with all the help from my awesome Shane and our family, I am not doing much these days!! We did do so fun things this weekend...
Saturday, Claire and I went and got pedicures! I am looking for a new place. Mom and I went last week to our usual place and they did not do a very good job. Mom and I were both disappointed and decided it was time to go somewhere else. So Claire and I tried a new place this weekend. Funny story - Claire and I were both in our chairs, sitting back, waiting on our pedicures. They started me and I was getting the full Sea Spa Pedicure. I told them that Claire just needed a trim and polish. Being the sweet little Asian women they are, I could not understand the nice lady that was working on Claire. She kept on asking me something and I finally just agreed (after saying, "Excuse me, I am sorry" a dozen times) and nodded my head and said "Ok". Well the next thing I know I look over and Claire is getting exfoliated, a stone massage and warm towel wraps, just like me. I just agreed to have to my 5 year old daughter to have the $35 Sea Spa pedicure!!!! The funny part, Claire was just sitting back, relaxing in her massage chair, LOVING life!!! I have created a monster!!!=) I wish I got a picture, but I too, was soooooo enjoying my pedicure =).
Saturday night, we celebrated Drew's 30th bday with the family. Tara had us all go out to dinner to a great place and then their place for cake. Here are some fun pictures of our fun night!!
Me and my handsome hubs....yes, I do own more than just black tank tops, but cut me some slack, you are lucky I am even in pictures right now =)Me, Claire, Mom, Tara and Jessica!Us girls and the lucky birthday boy =)Claire loves her uncle Drew - Claire has grown up over night and now insists on wearing jewelry everyday and carrying a purse =)Me and Jessica Cuties Claire and Jace
Shane and Claire
Owen all about blowing out Drew's candles...=)This picture cracks me up as this is how I look most days =)Sunday morning, we had brunch for Shane's Mom's 60th Bday!! Her bday is not until the 10th, but Brooke coordinated a surprise for her early as they will not be in town. It was a great time...
One of our last pictures of a family of 4...Nana and her grandbabies (Chad, Jennifer and the boys were in TN)This was not the most child friendly place so it was quite interesting letting Owen drink from a nice glass, with no lid. Luckily, I had straws in my purse...he thought he was big stuff!!
I have another appt on Wednesday and I guess we will see then if anything has changed. Shane is actually going on an overnight trip tomorrow night for work, so you can guarantee if she is coming early, it will be as soon as he leaves town =). Hopefully not!! He is lining up help for me the entire time he is gone so it should be no big deal. (One day, I will do a post dedicated to Shane and how awesome he has been through this pregnancy and how much I love him!!) This is my last week of work as I start my Leave next Monday. I am so excited as we are getting so close and very soon we are going to be holding and spoiling our sweet baby!!!!!
Have a good week!! I promise I am going to get caught up on every one's blogs!!!
