Still Pregnant

This is my 39 week picture. Kind of out of date. But, I probably still look about the same. Obviously the baby didn't come on time like the doctor said. I don't believe anything they tell me anymore. In fact, I would probably have a better chance of believing him if he said the baby wasn't ever going to come. Anyway, I did have another doctor's appointment on Wednesday and made an appointment to be induced on Monday. Hopefully the baby will come before then, but if not, Monday will be the deadline.

Baby Stuff

Nick and I decided that since our baby is coming soon, we should probably get the crib together. So last week Nick put together the crib, changing table, and little dresser. The sad part is we put the crib together in the living room and then it wouldn't fit through the baby's room door. Then we had to take it apart and then put it back together again in her room. It isn't the most quality crib and I am a little worried that when she turns six months it is all just going to fall apart.

I decided that I want to try to make her bedding. I wanted to make a blanket, bumpers, and bed skirt.

I worked hard on this blanket before we bought the crib and of course it wasn't the right size. So now I am just mad and haven't started to make anything else yet. At least the material is cute. I really hope the baby is a girl because if not, our little boy will be surrounded by pink! I barely have anything neutral!

I am now 39 weeks and had a doctor's appointment today. I am dialed to a 3 and 70% effaced. The doctor thinks that the baby is going to come within the week! When he said this I am certain I heard the Hallelujah chorus in the background. However, when I called to tell Nick his response was "Uh-Oh." You see, Nick has been kind of worried about our due date being so close to the BYU/Utah football game. Now there is an even greater chance that we might miss some of the game. Nick is funny. He isn't one to talk much or show his sympathy. Every night he comes home and finds me on the couch and asks how I'm doing and I say "everything hurts and my back and my groin and my stomach feels like it's stretching out to explode and my throat feels like it has acid fire burning and I can't breathe and the baby is kicking me in the ribs and I feel like I am going to DIE!" And then Nick will pat my arm and say "hang in there..." and then walk away.....But really he has done a great job of taking care of me. I don't think he really knows how to respond to my dramatics but he usually does try. I would give examples of how cute and sweet he is but it would just embarass him. So, if you ask me in secret what types of things he does I will tell you.

I also had a baby shower last Sat! My sister, sister in law, and friend all worked really hard and threw me an awesome shower! But, I have not got any pictures from my sister yet so I can't post any yet, but I will soon! Unless I am in labor.....which hopefully I will be.....But thanks everyone for coming and for the gifts! I am so excited to use them!
