I Can Walk!

I’m so happy to report that I can walk again today. What a relief! I was so tired of being cooped up in my bedroom all the time. Other than seeing the gastly mess my family had made of my home while I was thus cooped up, it was nice to get out and walk […]

Bored Out of My Mind!

Oh my goodness. I don’t know how bedrest moms do it. I am soooo tired of hanging out in my room. It’s so painful to walk anywhere, so I mostly stick to my room unless I need to use the restroom. I’m starting to go stir crazy. LOL I’m tired of being on the computer […]

Update

So sorry I haven’t been posting. I woke up with a lovely blog post in my head yesterday and never made it to the computer to post it. I was going to post that Virginia had actually dropped. I was pretty happy about that. But before I could post something lovely here, something else had […]

Not Done

Five days until EDD day and the gazebo roof is still not done. Dave worked on it for four hours last night, but thanks to some not-so-good screws he was unable to finish it, even with his brother’s help. I’m sure he will be working on it again tonight, which stinks for me, because I […]

No Baby this Weekend

I originally told my brother that the only way I’d photograph his wedding is if it put me into labor. Alas all I personally got out of it was pain. I couldn’t walk or even hardly move all day yesterday because my muscles were so cramped up, and as far as contractions go, not a […]

I Survived!

My appointment with the dermatologist yesterday went swimmingly if I do say so myself. It was quick and painless and even today it doesn’t hurt so much. It’s awesome to have the dang thing GONE! yeeehaaaaawwww! 🙂 Yesterday was a busy day. After my appointment I went baby shopping! I needed some onesies, some knit […]

I can’t believe it’s MAY!

I am officially due in 10 whole days! EEEK! I’m so not ready for this. My house is still a disaster. Our hot tub gazebo roof is not complete. I still have some baby items I need to buy. I just don’t feel ready! I guess she’ll come despite that and she probably won’t even […]

First of all a BIG THANK YOU to all of the people who loved me enough to throw me a baby shower for my sixth child. You went above and beyond the call of duty and it means so much to me. To My SIL Amy, my MIL Dianne, my mother Debra, and my good […]

Still HUGE

Nothing much to report other than baby V seems to want to grow like crazy. I am now measuring 11 cms over dates. I sure wish I could remember how big I was with Finn. A lot of that is my own belly in the way, of course, if I was thin I bet I […]

Eeek my big belly!

I finally got brave and asked someone to take a picture of my giant belly. Thanks Emily! Yes this was taken with my new camera for those who are curious. I did photoshop it a bit too. LOL For those who have been wondering I use photoshop CS2 to edit my photographs. And also, about […]

Pics of baby V!

Saturday I got to have a 3d ultrasound. Virginia was sooo cute! Her cheeks are so round and her lips look so cute! It even looks like she might have a cleft chin like my boys. She’s defintely 100% GIRL so no worries there. It was fun seeing her face in such detail, seeing her […]

Feeling Better

Well I survived the day yesterday without one emotional breakdown. YAY! Wednesday can be a hard day for me, because it is one of the days my hubby goes to build dune buggies and work on cars with his friends at night. For some reason I’m having a hard time sleeping when he’s not here, […]

Depression…is there such a thing as PRE-partum?

I am really struggling for some reason. DH and I have worked out our issues, and yet I still find myself melancholy all the time. And, once a week, and now it’s becoming even more often, I find myself sinking in to a deeper pit of despair and I am even starting to have panic […]

27 week check-up

Little Virginia is doing just fine. Everything in this pregnancy is going along smoothly. Her heartrate was in the 130s again and the only really interesting thing I have to report is that my uterus is already measuring 9cms too big. LOL That’s pretty common for me though, so I’m not worried about it at […]
