37 weeks

I am now considered full term, which means I could technically go into labor at any moment! Although, I am not getting my hopes up... I am not enjoying sleep as much as I used to. It is hot, uncomfortable, and I am up about every 1 1/2 hours to go potty, so that is not fun! Also, my feet hurt like crazy, and nothing seems to help. But that is really the worse of it. Swimming has been a life saver though, it is so refreshing and relaxing!!! We go to the doctor tomorrow. I hope he does an internal exam because I am curious to see if I am dilated at all. Ben's head is so low that at times when I am sitting if he moves his head it makes me jump out of my seat! I can't believe that in four weeks our little guy will be here. Derek is so excited and that is so great to see. I will keep you all updated!!!

35 weeks

I am now done with school, and am soo happy to be done. Now I can just relax. My mom gets here on Thursday, my graduation is on Friday and my shower is on Sunday. I have a very fun week ahead of me. Here are some picks of me in my swim suit. The water felt so good, and made me feel weightless. It was awesome!!!

34 weeks

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! We had a very nice weekend, and very productive too. We started our Saturday off by going to our all day childbirth class. It was fun to go to, and we learned some thing that we didn't know so that was good. I was just glad that they told me where to go to check in because that was the one thing I was kind of worried about. We got done with that around 3pm, then we worked on the house. We got the extra bedroom all ready for my mom who is coming a week from Thursday for my sisters b-day, my graduation, and my baby shower!!! I am so excited. That weekend will be super fun.
We went to the doctor's on Monday. Ben is VERY LOW, which the doctor said is good because it gets the cervix ready, but something we want to monitor so I don't go into preterm labor. I feel like Benji has grown a lot in the past couple weeks, which is exciting but a little scary too.
I am officially done with student teaching this Wednesday. It couldn't have come at a better time because I have been getting tired more easily lately. I can't believe that in two weeks I will be a college graduate and will have my credential, and that in 6 weeks I will have my baby boy, wow I couldn't have planned that any better :)
On a side note, I am loving the warm weather, but I am hating the allergies, so if you think about it pray that my allergies go away, because sneezing with a huge belly is not the most comfortable thing!!!

33 weeks

Hi all! I am now 33 weeks, which makes me full term in 4 weeks, which is just CRAZY!!! We went to the doctor yesterday Benjamin's head is VERY low, which is good because if helps to soften the cervix, but is a little bad because I could go into pre-term labor. I told Dr. B that I was uncomfortable and that I felt pressure down low, and he said no wonder because he really is that low! I finally found 3 outfits that are cute enough to bring him home from the hospital in this past weekend. I will take all 3, then we will decide what to put him in when we are there. They found Key Stones in my urine sample, which means I am not eating enough carbs. He said I changed my diet to much and need to eat more. Those are words that I LOVE TO HEAR!!! He debated having me go in once a week, but said we can wait two more weeks, then after that it will be every week. I asked about an epidural, and I think that is what I will go with, unless I am able to cope with the pain medication they give me before I get the epidural. I also asked him other questions, but since my dad and brother read this... I will not share :) Needless to say we are totally ready and totally excited!!
Oh, I GRADUATE MAY 22nd!!!!!! I can't beleive that on May 22nd I will officailly have My Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and my multiple subject teaching credential with an emphasis in early childhood education. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I am pretty proud of myself. Oh I also have to brag about how amazing my hubby is. He was in San Diego this weekend and when he got home he gave me a present. He went into a Motherhood Maternity store in San Diego and bought me my hospital outfit for once the baby is born. SO SWEET. I also got several text messages from the guys Derek was with telling me that all Derek was talking about was Benjamin. So adorable and so special to know how excited he is. I can't wait to see Derek hold Benjamin for the first time, it will be amazing!!!
