37 Weeks

Time is flying, isn't it?
We went to see my favorite woman, Dr. Wang. The appointment went well, I was in and out in less then and hour. I am 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. A week ago I was just dilated 1 cm.
She told me "probably one more week." Of course at the time I was just like "ok, la-ti-da." But as soon as I left I called Matt and he wanted to know what she meant by that and I was stumped. I mean I didn't think anything about it when she said it. Was it an "one more week of pregnancy, sucks to be you. Blah blah blah?" Or was it an "one more week and you will probably be having little man?" Ahhh!!! She of course talked to me about calling if I have contractions and all that stuff, but she did that at the last appointment too.

36 Weeks

YAY! We made it to 36 weeks, now it's time for Christian to come. Well, actually he has to wait til after July 31st, cause I am co-hosting a baby shower for Katy that day.
We had a visit to the doctor's today. Shockingly we were in and out in an hour and a half. I had a Group B Strep test, you know I loved that.
Here's the stats:
Gained 12 pounds total
Dilated 1 cm
No effacement
My mucus plug said bye-bye today
Christian seems to be about 5 1/2 pounds
His heartbeat was 170, she had to chase him around to get it.
I was prescribed to eat 2 cheeseburgers for lunch today, I LOVE Dr. Wang!
I of course had to get a little irritated at something, which was the lab being closed for lunch. Like they really need to eat, please!
It was a good baby day, now it just needs to stay good. I am hoping to get Matt to take a couple of belly shots with Adelaide and I today, but we will see.

One more done

I made a ribbon thing to go around the bassinet, because I didn't like the baby blue one I had for it. So here it is :) The center is a baseball button. I do have one last sewing project I forgot about. Which is to finish the dress I started as my very first sewing project, but I need Stephanie for that so I have rest time while she is in Cancun.

Finished Projects

It feels so good to have things done. This week I finished projects for Adelaide's room. We painted her mirror, which was this green/yellow color with stars that said twinkle twinkle. It is not very good, but I kinda like that it looks messy. I do have to take a little yellow to it to cover some spots and paint the inside purple, but otherwise I declare it DONE!

One of my other projects was making pillow case covers out of Adelaide's baby clothes. Yep, got that done today (like 15 minutes ago). I had made one of them a while back, but had to rip it apart cause it was too big and not hanging right. Well, I did them both today and they look and fit pretty good. Adelaide is in love and carrying them around laying on them.

I am just glad to have her room done before Christian gets here. We still have more furniture to buy for her room, but that is on hold for a little while.
I have one more thing to make for Christian, which is a ribbon thingy to decorate around his bassinet, but that is easy. So off to make dinner, clean a little, and finish another sewing project.

August Babies

I am in a group through cafemom that is made up of moms giving birth in August. So far 7 moms have given birth. FREAKY! It really makes me realize that Christian's time is approaching. In addition to them, my cousin had her baby on the 4th and a friend of mine's wife had her's on the 5th.
I am just really surprised that it is that time already. I still feel like I just peed on the stick.
I still have a list of things to do before he gets here. I don't even have a bag packed. I am kinda going into panic mode.

On that note, I need to get to work...

Ramblings about my week (and it's only Wednesday)

Monday's 30% chance of rain of course made it 100% to my house. It was raining so bad that you couldn't see out our windows. The wind was horrible and backyard toys were pushed and thrown everywhere, some things made it from the backyard to across the street into the middle of the front field. It was even bad enough to knock a branch down from a tree that hit the cable and electricity wires and pulled a metal pipe holding those wires off the house (refer to exhibit A). We lost cable but somehow didn't lose our electricity.
Exhibit A:

Then the fun begins. . .
Call the cable company... they need to get approval and will call back in 15 minutes. They never called back!
Call TXU, they tell me I need to call an electrician and get my electricity on temporary disconnect, but I can do that when they before the elec guy comes out.

Then Tuesday morning fun begins. . .
Get a call from the landlord, who will have the elec guy out today :)
Call TXU to get temporary disconnect. The guy says it won't be done til Friday, WTF? Oops, call gets dropped while driving over the lake.
Call TXU back, talk to nice lady who starts scheduling it to happen at 9am that day (what happened to Friday, herk #1???). Oops, call gets dropped as we pull up to Hillcrest.
Go into Hillcrest, call TXU, and am asked "is this the 1st time you've called or the 3rd?" Yeah, it's the 3rd :)

Go to doctor appt and walk into a pretty little sign that says Dr. Wang had an emergency c-section and will not be back to 10. Talk to nice, old lady who tells me I won't be able to be seen til 11. BTW, my appt was for 9:30. And this is the appt I had to reschedule because Dr. Wang had an emergency delivery when I went for my last appt. I am not upset, cause I may be that emergency delivery one day. However it's frustrating.

While in the waiting room I get a call from Oncor (TXU) to tell me they won't get out there til 1 or 2, and that TXU never even told them they were suppose to be there at 9. THANKS TXU!!!
Call Bowen, they are so easy going, and the inconvenience doesn't bother them.
I waited 2 hours to have her measure my belly and check the heartbeat (took less than 5 minutes).
Get home, Bowen electric is here and fixing everything. YAY! Find out that Oncor never showed up, they went ahead and cut the elec off like the awesome Bowen Electric people they are. Adelaide was in love with one of the guys and followed him around, too cute.
Cable had come by earlier, but couldn't fix anything because of the elec wires. Well DUH, I could've told you that. Hmm, maybe next time they will call someone back. Anyways, the guys come out and fix my cable. They were sweethearts and not stupid!
I call TXU to cancel my disconnect and they tell me it was already cancelled ??? OK, whatever.
Everything is fixed, Happy Day!!!

Today, Oncor shows up to turn off my electricity. REALLY??? I told them it was cancelled and they go on their way.
My landlord shows up to check things out and says I need to call Oncor and get them to cut down the branch that is still a possible hazard. Well, I told him Matt and I already checked into it and it is his responsibility. Oh no, he of course doesn't believe me and wants me to call them. Ok, I called and had them send me something in writing that says it's his responsibility. The thing that sucks about this is that I will have to call TXU and schedule another temporary disconnect, AAHHHH!!!!!

Ohh and while I was outside, I got attacked my fire ants. So my toes are little sausages right now.
