40wks 5 days appointment

Well I had an appointment with my midwife today. Measured 52cms, gained one more lb(58total), blood pressure still a little high(125/85), and she has NO idea what position he’s in. We heard the heartbeat strong on both sides and can’t feel where the feet are. LOL I asked her to check me for frame of […]

Still Pregnant

Just a quick update to let everyone know that we are still waiting. My kids were 10 days over, 5 days over, and 12 days over(induced) so it could still be a while. I can’t get to the puter every day right now as life is SUPER busy with homeschool activities, but I will try […]

DH didn’t miss the birth

Well DH went to CA and is back and still no baby. I’m so glad he didn’t miss the birth, but as I’ve never had a baby on a due date before we figured he was pretty safe. I go on and off with contractions. I’ve had some doozies today that started out 10 minutes […]

40 week prenatal

Well, I went in for my 40 wks prenatal today. Everything was ok except my bloodpressure is still high(138/85 normal for me is 120/70 or so) but she says since I’m so close it’s no use worrying about it. Still I am going to try to take it easy until I go into labor. Baby […]

Still no baby

Just wanted everyone to know that Finneas is still snug and warm inside mama. He’s quite happy there it seems. I have gone past dates with all of my babies and it appears that Finneas is no exception. I’m not due until Saturday so it could still be a while. I have contractions on and […]

Yucky yucky day-39 wks tomorrow

Today is the day I’m supposed to be in labor. I’ve been telling this baby for months now that I really wanted to go into labor on the 9th and have him on the 10th. I’ve been telling him why it would be better for both of us, but apparently he just isn’t listening! I […]

Mother’s Blessing and 38 wk belly pic

The Mother’s Blessing on Saturday was a beautiful experience. All of my friends came early and worked on the room. I saw some things but wasn’t allowed inside the room until it was done. It took a little longer than expected (6hrs rather than 4) but it turned out so beautiful! Here are a couple […]

38 week appointment

Everything went well at my 38 week appointment. Well…other than gaining two more pounds(53 total yikes), Finney is still head down, ROA, and very high. My blood pressure was a little high, but not alarmingly so, so I am taking it easy. My midwife is going out of town from Tuesday to Friday next week. […]

Ugh…Ugh…UGH!

Tonight I went to my husband’s company party. It was a nice Americanized luau with fire dancers and everything. It was nice meeting my husbands coworkers and naturally I turned the talk to my upcoming birth as often as possible. Invariably the comment I heard the most was… “You’re having a baby?!” They all seemed […]

Scary 37 week appointment

I went in for my appointment yesterday and it didn’t start out pleasant. First I found out that I’ve gained ANOTHER 5 lbs eek and I’m measuring now 48 centimeters. There was a little good news. Baby is now ROA (right occiput anterior) instead of posterior. But when my midwife found his heartrate it was […]

35 week appointment

Well at my appointment this week Finney was definately head down! Woohoo! He is also definately posterior, but I’m not too worried about that. He is high as well. Very high. That probably explains my measuring 45cms LOL sigh I’m up to a lovely 46lbs gained and not too pleased about it. But other than […]

Appointment update

Well, I didn’t measure at 45cms like I thought I would but I had gained 8lbs ugh. That’s makes a whopping 43 lbs gain this pregnancy which is huge for me as the most I’ve ever gained before is 25. Bad news though, the reason my belly looked/felt different is because Finney is no longer […]
