Published by under Baby D 2010

So, as anyone who has ever had children knows (and likely, most of you who know anyone who has had children know), the third trimester of pregnancy brings with it some “fun” side effects. To list a few, there are the frequent potty breaks 24 hours a day (which, of course means not so great […]

39 weeks, 3 days

Published by under Baby D 2010

Well, Baby D is still just a-cookin’ away (as you can see in the picture). To me, it sure looks like he’s sitting higher than in the picture from two weeks ago, but I think (HOPE) it’s an optical illusion. He definitely FEELS lower. There’s new pressure in places I didn’t feel pressure before; I […]

Today was yet another appointment for Baby D and me (and no, we haven’t yet decided on a name, but we’re closer, so quit asking! ūüėČ ).¬†All went well at the appointment – Baby’s heartbeat was strong and steady at 155. Doc still likes to joke that we’re in the “girl” heartbeat range and that […]

The other night, Bryan was doing some laundry (yes, he really is a dream husband most of the time!) and he noticed something he hadn’t seen before. A purchase I’d made at the Fort Worth Just Between Friends Sale¬†was hanging in the laundry room to dry. (Yes, nesting is in full swing and baby clothes […]

Today was my 34 week appointment and all is well! Baby bump is measuring just perfectly on track at 34 cm (basically you want about a cm per week). My blood pressure was good, and Baby D’s heartbeat was strong and steady at about 160 bpm this morning. He’d been wiggling around in there before […]

Baby Beds!

They did a great job!¬†After that, it was¬†my turn to get bedding washed and on the bed. It took me a […]

Shower o’ Gifts!

Published by under Baby D 2010,Family Time

This past weekend, three wonderful friends hosted an amazing baby shower for me and Baby D. I truly can’t believe how generous folks are and how blessed we are to have so many caring, loving, wonderful people in our lives. The three hostesses are three of my closest friends. Tori flew in from Denver, CO […]

32 weeks and counting

Published by under Baby D 2010

Well, folks, today was my 32 week appointment. Everything looks great so far – blood pressure normal, weight gain appropriate since the last appointment (and that’s all I’ll say!), and the baby belly is measuring right on track – 32 cm for 32 weeks! I’ve felt a few Braxton Hicks contractions in the last couple […]
