New Peditrician!! =D

Well, Its Official! We FINALLY have a SET peditrician! I can't believe I changed my mind at 39 weeks preggo!! I started doing some research on Vaccine's and found out that the Peditrician I had previously chosen, has a set schedule of when and what they will have to have and they won't take your kid if you don't follow there schedule! I was okay with it before I looked into the shots and then I just got freaked! Hunter will DEFINATELY be vaccinated, but i want to choose when and what Shots Jarrod and I will give him!

I feel so much better after I did my research and talked to a few people that went to Progressive Pediatrics and I'm definately impressed with all that I have heard! So then ,I called them to confirm they could take Hunter , took Aetna and that they could visit us in the hospital! && SURE ENOUGH they can! woohoooo!!

&& today I think I started to lose my mucus plug, not too sure since i don't really know what it looks like! I just saw some stringy mucus when I wiped (TMI, but hey it comes with being preggo) I can't wait to see what happens in the next few days!!

I have my 39 week check up tomorrow and I'm PRAYING for some great news but I am also preparing myself that there might not be any changes! but I'm hoping still!!

38 weeks and counting!

Hey There Everyone!
Well, I had my 38 week check up yesterday and we have made a LITTLE progress!! I was so stoked to hear that things are starting to move a little bit! I am a finger-tip dialated (not quite a cm yet) and about 20% effaced! its not a whole lot, but I'll take it! It actually means that my son is gearing up to meet his mommy and daddy!! HOLY COW! ha ha

Everything is going great in the pregnancy this far and everyday is just a blessing! The DR. said that at my 39 week checkup if I have more progress about 1cm or more then we can schedule an induction date for NEXT WEEK!! that means it could possibly only be 1 more week until my son arrives! wooohooooo!! I am praying for some progress!

Jarrod and I went to Wal*Mart yesterday to pick up my meds for my sore throat and while we were waiting we walked around the store for about 45 minutes! I started having some BHC, however none were painful just really tight! I also bought a birthing ball so that I could relax my back some and just stretch! I looked up some excersices on the internet and I found out that using the birthing ball can actually settle the baby in your cervix more! I was really excited about that. So last night I sat on the ball gently bouncing and rocking side to side and this morning my pelvic area is a little more sore! maybe he is getting in there more!

Well thats all my wonderful news from my appt!! My Next appt is next tuesday Sept 1st only 5 days from his due date! only 11 days and counting! or maybe I will be in Labor before my next DR appt! who knows... just a waiting game now!

Got The Parts!!!

Yep, thats right we have the parts to fix my AC in my car!!! Its such a blessing! The Lord Provided for our needs once again! =D

Here is a little back story on my Car... It's not an old car by any means, 2004 Axiom! This day started off as a pretty normal HOT SUMMER day, I went for one of my appt's and everything was going great. However on the way home I was waiting at a stop light and when it turned green I went to accelerate and well NOTHING happened! I figured it was a fluke and restarted my car, and tried to turn on the next street to make sure everything was okay.. well about half way into my turn the car shut down again! I am on the phone with Jarrod at this point and i'm FREAKING OUT! I was in the middle of both lanes (on-coming and going) There was a car coming at me that was flashing its lights and honking at me! I couldn't move my car and this other man was acting like i could! i was a mess! Jarrod couldn't even talk to me because i was mumbling so much! Finally he got me to calm down a little bit ( mind you at this point I'm almost 8 months pregnant) A Lady pulled over as well as two men and pushed my car into a parking Lot! which was such a blessing! I then waited on my sweet husband to come and check out what was going on... When he got there we started the car and it died and then we tried again and it STARTED, I was stoked, however when the AC came on it cut off again and thats how we figured out that something Major was wrong! I just began to think "oh no, our baby will be here in a little over 2 months" and we were just then starting to get ourselves financially better from our crazy apartment change!(whole other story) However, I just prayed that the Lord would take care of us again and that we would be fine!
We called Jarrod's step dad and he said he would come to tow us as soon as he could, so we got in Jarrod's truck and went to get lunch and then headed back to meet up with Doug! We towed the car to a shop and they confirmed that it was my AC compressor that went out and that it would be VERY expensive to fix it! at this time we would have to wait and just save money before the baby came!

Also, my sweet husband drove my car to work everyday since with NO AC! While I drove his truck with AC! He is so sacrificial!! I feel so very blessed to have such a caring Husband! I can't thank the Lord enough everyday for providing this man in my life!

&& Here we are now, 2 months Later and Praise The Lord we went and picked up the parts yesterday and the car is going to be getting fixed tomorrow!! woohoo... I am so so so thankful!

&& as of tomorrow I will be 38 weeks! So I hope that after my car gets fixed Hunter will be ready to meet his mommy and daddy!!!

17 more days until my Due Date!!

Well, We only have about 17 more days until our due date! I can't believe it! Time is sure flying by and I really hope that it continues. I had my 37 week Dr appt on monday, The Dr checked me and well, I was still closed (not dialated) but he said that Hunter is in position and is VERY Low! So that was really good news! I knew that he had dropped only because it hurts to walk and sit now! I'm praying that when we go back this monday he will be even lower and I will have Dialated and Effaced some!

I am feeling pretty good, just starting to get really sore in my hips now. Walking and sitting hurt, I feel like its burning down there when I walk, like bone on bone, but I will take it with Joy!! It means that my little man is getting so much closer to being in our arms! I can't wait to see him and finally kiss his little face!

I am now OFFICIALLY anxious to meet my son! just knowing that it could be anytime is just awesome! I go on youtube occasionally to check out Baby births! I am such a dork, but I could just sit here all day and watch them measure the babies, hear there first crys and see how overjoyed the parents are to FINALLY have them in there arms! It just makes me all the more excited to meet my little man!!!

Hunter, Mommy and Daddy Love you so much and are so excited to meet you! We are so thrilled that The Lord has made you perfect! No matter what!! We are praying for you continuously!!

Hunter is almost here!

I was just sitting here and I realized that Hunter could be here in just 7 DAYS! I can't believe that I will be full term in just 7 days!! that is so surreal to me! My pregnancy has just flown by! However, I think Hunter is going to make Mommy and Daddy wait for a little longer!! I want him to be good and ready when he gets here!

Jarrod has made some estimates of when he thinks our sweet little boy will be here! The dates are:August 24th (38 weeks 2 days) or August 26th (38 weeks 4 days) and he will weigh 7 pounds 12 oz.I can't wait to see if Daddy is right about those ones! We are both so excited to meet him! I have to say that we have been getting more anxious lately! Jarrod has been reading and singing to Hunter alot lately and I'm pretty sure that Our Precious Boy loves it! When Jarrod gets close to my belly and begins to talk to him Hunter starts to wiggle and will move closer to where his voice is! I think it is just precious! I can already see how much Jarrod loves him and is already so attached to him! It makes me melt! He is going to be loved so much! I enjoy feeling Hunter move and I know that it will be a feeling that I miss when he is born but I can't wait to hold him in my arms and just love on him! I often wonder who he looks like,what color hair he will have, how much he will weigh, when his birthday will be ... I am still so astounded that The Lord is granting us this precious gift! We pray for him continuously!!
