I cant believe that the time has come! everyone said that "they grow up so fast" and I believed them for sure, but I didn't realize that it went that fast... Its so crazy! He is already one! Here are some pictures of my little pirate! :)
So it say I haven't posted since August... Whoops! Well here it goes. The last of my pregnancy. We were measuring a little large so they scheduled an ultra sound at 36 weeks. Little man was measuring in at 8 lbs 13 oz! I asked her what the average was for a fetus that size and she informed us between five and six pounds! Oh lord! I sure know how to cook 'em! I called my mom in a panic an she came as quickly as she could in case we came early! So the next untra sound was scheduled for our 39 week appt. when we walked in I was nervous that in the last three weeks he had put on about a pound, maybe a pound and a half? Nope. The tech told us he was measuring in at 10lbs 2 oz! But amazing and healthy. We were able to see him moving and sucking on his hand already! This kid was born hungry! Lol so the c section was on! But luckily for me I got the best of both worlds. I started contractions the night before the c section praying that he didn't try to come on his own. We were warned of complication with big babies and them trying to come out and having broken collar bones that could cause nerve damage! Ugh. So held out until we got the hospital and we were admitted in on schedule. Prepped and taken back for surgery! Fifteen minutes later my little angel was born. I was filled with so much love! Who would have known?!? 11 lbs 1 oz. 21 & 1/2 inches long. He was short and a little fatty patty!
Only two months since I last posted..... I'm slacking! hahaha
Well not much has really changed in the last two months, other than getting VERY large! I like to say, I'm large and in charge! :) I finally hit 30 weeks this week! Crazy that in ten short weeks I can be a mommy! <3 Im so amazed with this whole process! Its crazy! They say he is about 3 pounds and 15.5 inches! Thats longer than a foot! WOW! :) It makes me sooo excited that were going to be parents soon... and we have such an amazing support system behind us. Our little stash of goodies is getting pretty large too! And his room is almost all painted. We just need to add the lace around the top to finish it off. Then to start decorating! Well... we have to wait until after the shower to do most of that....but thats only a month away as well!! :)
Its crazy, but so much has changed in the last couple of months! First off, I have a new step father! He is such a cool person! Im really happy for my mother and my sisters. They finally get a man in thier life that is a decent person!
Second off--We found out were having a boy! Josh is soooo thrilled it isnt a girl first. haha
Also, we went off to Cali to visit with family & for my mothers wedding. It was so much fun. ((Too much driving....)) but so much fun!
Then the day we came back home, after we left both grandmothers behind, Jax decided to start kicking! And it was so strong, that Joshua was able to feel him on the first day as well! How amazing it is to feel that movement. I cant describe it. I love love love it!
I can just sit there and watch my stomache jiggle around when he kicks off. And he definatly found my bladder. Thats for sure! Stinker wants to make me pee myself almost all day. lol
Also--there was some drama at the work place. I have to figure out what im going to do. There are a couple of options. But there BIG choices and I need to make them pretty soon. So wish me luck!
Here are some pictures to share!
A couple of things happened in April! First off we had shooter school--which is a big deal for the fam! Its something pretty much all of us are involved with! We had a group of I think 22 or so. It was tons of fun to get all together and blow stuff up! <3
And for our monthly trip we went back up to Payson! Its just so peaceful up there-and doesnt cost too much money since its the families! Here are some pics from this trip! <3
Hope you enjoy! And hopefully i can keep this up to date now! ;)
We went to the doctor on my 14th week appointment-and I was slightly dissapointed because when we walked into the room there was only the Doppler, and when they scheduled the appointment they called it the In Room Ultrasound. We werent going to get to see our baby again!? I was super sad. She said that the only time pretty much was when we were going to find out the sex at the 20 week appointment. So I ended up being ok with it, but still not understanding why all of these women who get to see the baby before it even looks like a baby!? lol Anyways, she went searching for the heartbeat...... Nothing. I was terrified! She told us that once you hear the heart that you have less than 1% of misscariage at that point!!! So I started freaking out and crying of course. At that point, she had to bring the Ultra Sound in and look at the baby!! I was sooo happy when I finally got to see the little thing what was changing my life in a heartbeat! At first I didnt want to look at the screen, what if something had happened?? I was terrified. And she said ah there it is! The tears ended immediatly. We watched the heart beat for a little while, and she made it kick around with poking it! It was amazing! A true blessing in the making! :D
So this is how we recieved our first picture of the baby!
