Shower aftermath

Posted by aeopi on September 29, 2008

This may or may not be a surprise to you – depending on how well you know me – but I managed to get all the shower gifts put away into their proper place yesterday evening!  I was exhausted most of the day but for some reason this had to be done!  Owen’s nursery looks more complete now with all his fun presents in it!  Thanks again to everyone!  Here are some more pictures from the shower.

Holy Cow!

Posted by aeopi on September 24, 2008

Cow is right!  Look at that belly!!  I am now at 30 1/2 weeks – that means only 9 1/2 weeks left to go till the official due date of November 30.  Wow!  How time flies and bellies grow (and hands and feet swell, ugh)!  I had a shoe crisis this morning – only one pair to wear that even remotely matched my outfit!  It was not good.  Luckily my mom and dad are calling in backups for me!  Momma’s bringing some 10’s she doesn’t wear anymore to me this weekend and my Dad is ordering me some fall shoes.  Thank goodness we’re a shoe family!!

Latest update on doctors appointments: I went yesterday and am measuring right at 30 weeks and all else is normal!  My blood work came back from the last appointment and I’m a little anemic so have been put on an Iron supplement – no big deal.  Glucose was normal though, phew. 

My shower is this Saturday and I’m really getting excited!  I can’t wait to see everyone and get all kinds of goodies!  See y’all soon!!

Calisthenics

Posted by aeopi on September 18, 2008

Owen is moving so much these days!  Last night after Chris got home from his bowling night with the boys, Owen must have been doing jumping jacks!  Chris had his hand on my stomach for about 20 minutes just letting Owen kick away.  Owen kicks all afternoon and evening too.  Such an active little guy! It’s so cool and yet so weird to feel something moving in side of me.  I can’t get over the feeling of it!  I still smile every time it happens.  It’s like having my own private entertainment!

Update

Posted by aeopi on September 10, 2008

I went to the doctor this morning and am measuring at 29 cm which is about equal to 29 weeks.  Supposedly though I’m only 28 1/2 weeks.  The measurement is normal, just wanted to give you all the update as you begin placing bets on the due date! 

All went fine at the appointment.  I won’t know about my glucose/diabetes for a couple of days.  I got my shot (in the butt!!).  And baby and mom’s hearts sound perfect, text book as the doctor said.  🙂 

Love you all!

Something happened…

Posted by aeopi on September 3, 2008

Chris has finally felt Owen kick!!!  It happened the week before last.  I know I should have posted then, but I’ve been swamped at work.  Anyways, Owen kicked his hand two times and Chris was so thrilled that it made me tear up.  It’s so great to finally be able to share this wonderfully crazy sensation with Chris.  He has since felt it a couple of times but mostly Owen has decided that Daddy’s hand means he needs to calm down, and he stops kicking when Chris touches my belly. 

Last night was precious though.  We were both awake at 3am due to bathroom breaks and noisy animals.  Most nights this is the time that Owen decides to do jumping jacks (to my despair).  So, since usually Daddy has the hand of calmness I asked Chris to touch my belly for a while.  So we cuddled this way and Owen just kicked away at Chris’ hand.  It was so (Josh, don’t make fun) cute to hear Chris’ sleepy little giggle at the feeling of Owen kicking him.  It made me smile as I tried to fall asleep with my two boys.  Eventually Owen quit kicking and we all passed out, it was 3 in the morning afterall. 

Other than that update, nothing else is new.  I go to the doctor next week for my glucose test (for gestational diabetes) and to get my Rhogam shot (due to RH- blood).  Then two weeks after that is my last monthly doctor’s visit.  After that one we start going to the doctor every two weeks.  The clock is counting down!! 

Oh, and my baby shower is coming up at the end of this month (Sept. 27)!  I’m so excited!  Already, I have been to Alana’s shower, sent a present to Kathy for her shower in Houston, and have one to attend for Kim.  It’s fun to see what everyone has registered for.  Although, I keep adding things to my registry to the point that it seems like I have way too many things on there.  Oh well, y’all will have more fun shopping that way.  I can’t wait to see everyone at the shower! 

Guess that’s it with the update.  Love you all!
