Baby update

Yeah, so I missed last weeks post. But I did go to the doctor and I have dilated to a 2 but I didn't ask him about effacement and he didn't tell me. We had talked a little, in a previous appt., about me being induced on the 15th but that is when Nate's family reunion is so I talked to him yesterday and told him that Thursday the 11 would be way convenient and doc would do it but he will be out of town. So, now we decided on Wed. the 17th to be induced, if he hasn't come before then. He even called in the set up the appt. right then with labor and delivery.
I have stopped taking or doing anything that will induce labor. I started 4 days ago walking on the treadmill for a half hour a day(15 min on an incline and 15 min flat) and I would like to keep doing that because it's so nice to just get exercise but I don't know if I will. I probably won't go into labor before then but you never know and with my luck I probably will go into labor while my doc is out of town.
We are excited for the baby to come and can't wait!

35 weeks

So I got my cervix checked again and I am still the same but what the doctor didn't tell me last week was that I was 60% effaced. He said it was no bog deal, which he's right, but it's nice to know what's really going on with my cervix. I have dropped and he's head down he's not going anywhere and he's ready to go.
Doctor asked me when I wanted to have Hadyn and I said I would atleast like to have him a week early. And when he left the room he said," O.K. the 15th"(of June) SO I guess we're atleast planning on the 15th of June. Wierd!
It's been real great being pregnant with Hadyn. He is the calmest baby I have felt. He has yet to have a kicking spree just soft calm movements. It's so enjoyable! He has had the hiccups a few time simce aobut 34 weeks but because of the position that he is in I have to really try to pay attention because it is really soft. I think he just might be my most mellow baby yet! I just can't explain how calm he really is! Infact he so calm that if it wasn't normal for him to be this calm I would be worrying.
Anyway, I've got another appointment next Thursday at 2:00.

34 weeks

So today I went to the doctor and just so you know every time I go I am almost to the next week so like today I am 34 almost 35 weeks (on Sunday). So it just helps move thing along a little faster with me being almost to the next week.
Anyway, Doc. did my Strep B culture and checked my cervix. I am dilated to a 1 but not effaced. My cervix is still pretty thick. Which things could stay this way till I am 40 weeks. It' just weird to think that if I go into labor in a week, they won't stop it. And in 2 weeks I am considered full term!
I am on weekly visits now so stay tuned.

I had to add a few more pregnant pics that I liked better than the others.
So lately we've just been living life. Nate got accepted to USU and we will move to Logan sometime after the baby is born and before the fall semester starts. We are excited!
Hyrum and Jesse seem to be going through a tantrum stage and it's kind of frustrating but they are doing well with learning about the new baby. Hyrum sometimes will randomly talk about Hadyn and when I ask Jesse where the baby is he says," Baybu" then lifts up my shirts pokes my belly button and gives it lots of kisses! It's way cute!
I am doing well in this pregnancy. I started out 20 lbs heavier but I will/should end at the same weight that I ended at in my previous 2 pregnancies which were the same as well. I gained 45 lbs in the other 2 and this one I will gain 25 to 30 lbs. And it's summer time so I should be able to get out more than I did in November with the other 2.
I am now 34 weeks, I have an appointment on thursday the 14th where I will be tested for strep B. I don't know if he will check my cervix then or not and from there he may schedule me for my last 2 week check up or I might be going in every weeks from there on out. I just can't remember. I am going to the same Doc that delivered Hyrum.
The only difference in this pregnancy is that I am having braxton hicks. I don't remember every having them with my other 2. At the moment I haven't felt any for about the last week or so but for a while there they seemed to come often and one day they were very frequent and hard and lasted all day long and when I went to bed they woke me up a few times out of my sleep. But it has settled down a lot, which is good. I am taking red rasberry and black cohosh pills to help soften my cervix. It's wierd to think that I could safely deliver in just less than 3 weeks when I will be 37 weeks and considered full term. I probably won't deliver but I could.
Hyrum is enjoying primary and Jesse will go to nursery in 2 Sundays! We are so excited for that!
I think it will be fun and will help me to get on more frequently if I copy my cousin Travis' wife Jenny and do a post after all my doc visits from here on out. So keep checking the blog now and I promise to post a lot more frequently.


34 weeks pregnant

So we were at Nathan's sister's wedding last night and they had some dancing. I recorded a video of one of the dances that I thought looked like so much fun. Well, Nathan's other sister, Sarah, has a fun little friend,Jaimie. I was sitting next to Jaimie and said that I would like to go dance but that would just look so funny with my being pregnant. I said that it would look like two pigs fighting under a blanket. Jamie laughed at my comment and said," No really, you sould go dance, it'll put you in labor!". I said," Jaimie! I'm not due till June." She said," Yeah, that's how good this song is!"

Am I really having a boy?

So I came across the ultra sound pics and video of baby #3 and got to looking and thinking that he is very well endowed, if you know that I mean! Seriously, to me it looks like it's the size of the umbilical cord! So either he's WELL endowed or it's the umbilical cord that we are seeing and it might be a girl. But I'm not a doc. or trained in the art of ultra sounds so he's probably just a big boy!

Tax Return

So it turns out our kids really are paying off! We are getting a nice tax return, atleast for us it's nice. We are getting $6,000.00 back. We are putting nearly all of it toward debt and bills but we are using a little for bunkbeds for the boys, glasses for Nate, and a digital camera! Well, a few other items we will get but those are the main ones. So sorry we don't have any pics up right now but in the next few weeks you should be seeing some.
I am headed up tp Rexburg next week to do a shower for my friends and I will also have an open house while I am there as well. Might as well milk it for all it's worth.
Nathan has applied for USU and we are just waiting on word whether or not he got in. It might be fun to live in Logan.
We went to TJ Maxx the yesterday to get me a purse and I found a matching purse and wallet/checkbook holder for about $33.00 when origonaly the set is just over $100! Nate chose it and I love it! Yes, I have to have my husband with my when I shop cause what I pick out is never quite as great as what he picks out for myself. He has good taste!

Our Blog

So I've had this blog for a while and never told anyone but I want to do one now. I'm hopeing that I can get some help with the layout soon.
Anyhow, we are in Utah with my in-laws. They are letting us catch up financially with the third baby coming. We are grateful, the only thing is just missing our own place, but it will all be worth it in the end. It's been good.
I am just about 25 weeks along and all is well. Nothing has happened and I have carried nearly flawlessy. The only thing is I fell down the stairs and bruised my hip/bum pretty bad but all is well, I was just in a lot of pain for a few days. I still feel like I have quite a bit of energy! And I am so excited to deliver in June so that I have a few months that I can still get out and go walking, it's not that great when you have babies in November, then your confined to your house because of the weather.
Nathan has appled to USU and we are hoping to hear back from them in the next 2-3 weeks! Hopefully he gets in, he really wants to go through the music program up there.
