Prego Bowling...

Last weekend Stephanie and the boys came for a visit. Tom thought it would be fun to go bowling, which it was... until I mentioned to my doctor this week that I went bowling. He kindly asked me not to do that again until AFTER the baby is born! Who would have thought to worry about my falling or getting hurt! I had a great time with them all weekend!

Scott and Michele even stopped by for a few rounds!

36 weeks

Last night we had a little bit of a scare, as I wasn't sure if I was going into labor. The strong pain and pressure did finally relieve some after 3hrs of contineous pain. Our weekly doc appt today showed us what was going on. Tommy has settled his way low into my pelvis and getting settled in.

The doctor took measurements again this week and says Tommy weighs about 6lbs, although I lost a pound over the past week. When he plugged in the numbers, the computer thinks Sept 9 will be the big day... but the computer doesnt realize its my first baby etc - so we can't really know yet.

Until next week...

Nursery Coming Along...

We got a few things put in the nursery this week. Tom is working on finishing the armoire painting but we are very proud of the cute drawer knobs we picked out.

Our order came in for the crib bedding and we couldn't wait to put it on the crib!

35 weeks & 4 1/2 pounds!

We are visiting the doctor on a weekly-base now. Its hard to believe Tommy will be here in 4 weeks (at most)! Doctor visit went good. He says Tommy weighs about 4 1/2 lbs and should gain about 1/2 lb each week from now on. So, if I carry him full term, he will be around 7 lbs. at birth. Tommy is "in the process" of dropping and should complete that journey in the next 7-10 days.

Tom and I went to CRMC after the appt yesterday to pre-register for our visit. This will allow me to get in the room and settled faster when I am in labor instead of filling out paperwork.

Meanwhile, as all this is setting in with mommy and daddy-to-be, we are working on setting Tommy's room up and arranging the furniture. We are starting the "fire-drill" phone calls with family, testing if they will answer their phones when we call :-) A few have past, many have failed!

Line of the Day: What Did I Hit?

Tom loves telling people funny stories that happen to me while being prego. I finally have a story to tell about him.

Somehow, he managed to have this past Saturday off work. It was later in the day and we had some errands to run as well as grabbing some food while we were out. We got in the truck and looked at the front window of the house. There sits (as always), Gracie's head peaking through the plantation blinds. We both comment to each other at how freakin' cute she is. As we are commenting on her cuteness, Tom proceeds to back out of our single-car driveway. We hear: "BAM". Tom's comment was "what did I hit?" and all I could do was scream - "MY CAR!". He was too distracted by Gracie's cuteness to remember that my car was parked behind the truck and he needed to back around it. We both jump out of the the truck to find no real damage, accept from his trailer hitch cover that is oval shaped with a Seminole head on it. My car is now dawning a nice oval shape on the bumper!! Not a SCRATCH on his truck.

We finally got out of the driveway and started talking about it so much that I couldn't stop crying because I was laughing so much (its a sweeny thing). Tom had to calm me down in fear that I would put myself into labor from laughing so hard. It took a good 20-minutes for me to finally get my composer back.

Note to Daddy: If you hit my car because Gracie was so cute... imagine how it will be when your son is here and so cute! What will you hit then? -mommy
