41 weeks and 1 day

still pregnant.

My mom, Beth, the boys and I have spent our days walking walking and more walking. Today we walked at the Mall of America.

more pics from our adventures while waiting here.

Baby Pool

Only three people are left in the game and things are not looking good for Carmen… if I have this baby by 10:30 tonight it will be a miracle!

I am entering a new guess because it is my game and I am the one carrying the baby so I can do that sort of thing!

I am optimistically guessing this Saturday.

Anyone else have another guess?

If it helps you choose a date let me tell you what has been going on…. Nothing! Contractions start up but they never really go anywhere. My original due date is tomorrow (July 14th). I don’t “feel” like the baby is coming any time soon – if ever. I refuse to take caster oil. However, I can only walk around the block once with out contractions starting up.

That is about it.

Tomorrow I have another appointment with my doc. I will let you know if she has any more insight.

34 weeks and nesting

I realized the other day that I have not been blogging about this pregnancy much at all, so here it goes.

Everything is fine. Baby Girl is growing just as she should be. I am feeling as good as to be expected. I am getting more tired and am waddling now instead of walking.Baby Girl is moving around ALL the time. Her favorite is to punch my bladder at 2am, 4am and 6am. She is already on a schedule!

The boys are getting more into the whole baby thing. PJ is convinced that he has a baby in his belly too. He loves  to smack big slobbery kissing on my belly. Michael has mastered his “gentle touches” and that is really about all you can ask from him right now. He is very self absorbed right now and is more concentrated on what he “CAN’T” do than the fact that he will have a baby sister soon.

Tim is really busy with work right now. He is trying to get as much done as he can before the baby comes. This means a good 20-30 hours of overtime each week. He is really looking forward to paternity leave where he can spend his days wrestling with the boys and reading books while the boys splash in the pool.

I am in full on nesting/purging mode. I am getting rid of anything and everything that isn’t needed. The next task on my to do list is to make up some meals for the freezer. If anyone has any freezer friendly recipes, please leave them in the comments or shoot me an email. I would greatly appreciate it!

That is all for now. I am heading to Sams Club to pick up gross amounts of ground beef so I can make up a couple of my Aunt Anne’s meatloaf recipes!

p.s. pics from this year’s AGM in Marco Island are now uploaded!
