35 Weeks!

It is the last week of January and I am at 35 weeks! Thinking of the possiblity of holding my sweet Hannah next week is so exciting and overwhelming! Yesterday we had a baby shower with our Sunday School class at church. Hannah got more supplies and diapers!! When we started talking about going into labor early and how it could happen next week you should have seen the look on Josh's face! =) You never know when it could happen but we are ready with supplies and clothes and diapers...! A friend brought a bassinet over to us on Saturday so we could use it for the first few weeks. I put it together and it is right near my side of the bed. It was so exciting waking up this morning and seeing it there!
I go to the doctor on Thursday for my week check-up and then will continue with weekly appointments from then on. I will update you on my status then.
Continue to pray for Hannah that she would continue growing and stay alive and healthy for her upcoming birth!!

Hannah's Room

Here are the latest pictures of Hannah's room. Here is her crib and changing table. We painted pink flowers on the wall to match her bedding. Of course pink curtains too!

We even painted pink flowers on her closet door. (like "Boo" from Monsters Inc.)

This is my little wall I decorated. It has flower hooks to hold clothes and other items. It also has a cute shelf to store stuffed animals etc.

Josh's Birthday

I wanted to post a picture of Josh's birthday on January 19. I made him two cakes to honor his Florida Gators team. (note what he is wearing!)

34 Weeks

All is well here. Hannah is still kicking and moving around A LOT. Some days she seems to have dropped down like she is getting ready to come out soon. I have been able to breathe easier and am making a lot more trips to the bathroom! I guess we'll see soon enough. Josh and I are REALLY hoping to meet her in 3 weeks or so. Since the doctor has said she is already a good size baby, coming early will mean I won't have to try and push out a 9 to 10 pound baby girl! Josh and I are praying daily that sweet baby girl will stay healthy and finish growing correctly before she is born into this world. Please continue to pray with us that her heart would continue beating and that Hannah would be born perfect in the correct timing of His will.
PS Pictures of her room coming very soon!!

33 Weeks

33 Weeks! I had a doctor's appointment today and got to see my regular doctor. It was nice to catch up with her and she was really excited to see how far I have come from the beginning of my pregnancy. I had only gained "baby weight" (what Hannah herself gained) from my last visit so that was nice to know. She measured my belly and said that Hannah will be a good size baby and that she could easily come around 38 weeks! This date would put me at February 20th. If this information is true, my friend Kiersten and I could be in the hospital delivering our baby girls at the same time. (she has a scheduled c-section for Feb. 20)
Over the long weekend Josh and I went to Target to look at baby cribs and changing tables. As it turns out the crib and changing table I really really wanted had gone on clearance. After finding out the crib and changing table were quickly disappearing we decided to go ahead and purchase them. We had to drive to several different stores before we were able to purchase the matching changing table and crib (that were both white). We put them together on Monday evening and they look so good! Now all we need is a matress and I think we will be set.
Hannah has still been kicking and moving around a lot which is great. Although, she has been making me more uncomfortable. It has been harder to sleep and work, or really do anything normal. Please continue to pray that baby girl would stay healthy and strong and her heart would continue beating. Please begin praying for a quick and easy delivery of a healthy breathing baby girl.

32 Weeks

32 Weeks is here. For a long time during my pregnancy I kept saying, if I could get to 32 weeks I know that Hannah would have a good chance of making it... Now that I am here I still feel like I have forever to go and would be worried if she came this early. Yesterday work was stressful on my body and I started having contractions even though I went home right after work and rested. I called the doctor and she asked me to come into the hospital to Labor and Delivery to get checked out. They put the monitors on me and listened to everything and said I was fine and not in labor, my cervix was closed, and Hannah was doing fine. After about an hour and a half they let me go home. My body is just so overly tired, huge, and stressed. I am just ready to have this baby soon!!
Please continue to pray for Hannah that she would grow and finish developing correctly. Please pray she would be born a live and healthy baby.

31 Week Doctor Appointment

I had a great doctor's appointment yesterday. The doctor I saw was very friendly and didn't rush to get done with me. She saw the list I was holding and was very patient to answer each question and concern. It really made me feel a whole lot better. I do not have diabetes, but I do have to start taking an iron pill and continue taking the baby asprin until 35 weeks. We got to hear Hannah's heartbeat again. It was nice and strong.
Last night Josh and I went to a labor class. Yes, they do show you a video of a real birth - but I closed my eyes. I'm not going to see it from that angle when it happens to me, so I didn't want to see it happening to someone else. I am very nervous about the active delivery (pushing) part and also that Hannah makes it through it all and comes out okay. Those are my top two concerns which I just need to pray about daily.
I had a friend who lost her baby at 19 weeks yesterday. I am very saddened and also reminded that a baby can be lost at any time. Please continue to pray for Hannah that she would continue to grow and develop correctly. Pray that her heart would continue beating strong. We want to see her alive and healthy very soon!!

31 Weeks

I'm updating a little late this week. Tomorrow we go to the doctor and I have a really long list of questions to ask, like why they haven't sent me my test results or called about the bloodwork taken almost 3 weeks ago! Honestly I feel like just a number sometimes and it has been getting to me lately. So I have my list of questions and I am going to ask them one by one and make the doctor spend the time in that little room with ME. Also, I am going to ask to see my regular doctor for my next visit. I don't want to go swishing around again to someone different again. When I am on the delivery table and someone other than MY doctor has to deliver, I am not going to remember any of the other doctors that I saw for like 2 minutes anyways. I just want to see MY doctor. Shouldn't the pregnant patient get her way!?!
Hannah has been moving TONS. It feels like it is nonstop sometimes. Last night she was turned in such a weird position and I just could not get comfortable! I am ready for her to be ready to come out!! That is all for now. I will update you tomorrow on my doctor visit.
