Quick Update

Dr. appt yesterday went fine...uneventful. She didn't even check me, didn't want to stir anything up. Go back on the 7th for pre-op stuff, then the big day on 14th!
Hopefully, she will decided to come early! I am sooooo ready.

Season Premier Week

Call me a couch potato...I dont' care(I actually look like a potato, right now). This week all of my shows start up again. For the past month since they have been advertising new season premiers, I have been so anxious for this week. I think John and I watch something everynight of the week. A few will be new to me, like Biggest Loser (Families). I watched the first one last week and I was hooked.
Here are some of my favorites.
NCIS, CSI, Survivor, the New Adventures of Old Christine, and like I said, a few have sparked my attention, so I will check them out. And, it will make my week go by quick! Because then I will only have 2 weeks after this week is over. I know, I know, my mind works weird!
Any shows you are giddy about watching?

Countdown!

The countdown is really hitting home people! 3w 3d until baby Brecken will be here for sure! I really cannot express how ready I am to hold her and her to be out of my belly. Kayden is so excited. She talks about her all the time.
Thursday I had a dr. appt. All went well, nothing exciting. I go back on Sept. 29th. Then Oct. 7th for my pre-op, then Oct 14th for the BIG day. My c-section will be around 12:30 pm. For some reason my dr. had that week blocked off, but that is when I had to have mine done, so she is working me in on her lunch break?????
Can I get fries with that??????
Anyway, I have finally gotten clothes and linens washed for Brecken and everything is ready for her arrival. Except for 1 or 2 items that aren't that big of a deal.
Alright, well, I will try to update again before too long. Since we moved we haven't gotten internet (and believe it or not, I am still alive) so I have to update when I can get to my mom's or granny's. Have a good weekend!

Brecken's Shower

Yesterday, three of my wonderful girlfriends gave me a shower for Brecken. Second baby showers are awkward sometimes, b/c you already have a lot of stuff, and if it is the same sex baby, then you really have almost everything. So, the invitation mentioned the basic items I needed--diaper, wipes, lotion, wash, etc.
Nikki, Patience and Stacy did such a great job preparing and hosting this shower. When I walked in, there were already a ton of gifts. Then, more and more people started coming. I was just overwhelmed alittle b/c although I knew it would be a great shower, I just didn't expect such a huge outcome. It is an understatement to say we are blessed and loved. We received not only the essentials, but clothes and special gifts also.
Thank you so much to everyone who came or sent a gift or helped with the shower. It was WONDERFUL and I couldn't have been more happy.
When I got home, John opened the car door and said, "I thought it was just diapers and wipes, where are we going to put all this stuff!" Again, very thankful for everything.
I didn't get a picture of me with the hostesses, it is on my mom's camera and I will post it when I can get her camera.



Kayden even got a few surprises


Me, Audrey and Avie


Me and Christy


I was NOT exaggerating....

October 14, 2008

My appointment today went as well as we had hoped. The ultrasound showed that Breckens kidneys haven't changed from before-not worse or better. My fluid levels are normal which means that her kidneys are functioning properly b/c she is producing urine! God is good and is taking care of our little girl.
She weighed 5 lbs. My Dr. had my due date at oct. 28th, but after looking back over ultrasounds and measurements, she moved it up to the 19th(where it was supposed to be anyway)). So, that means that I am 33w2d instead of 32w. Maybe Brecken won't be 9 lbs!
My c-section is scheduled for October 14th. I am so glad we have a date on the calendar. Now I just have to be patient until then. It is hard, but I know she will be here before I know it.
So, that is my update. Thanks for your prayers, we really are so excited about meeting our sweet little girl and sharing her with you.
The ultrasound pic is fuzzy, but it is her profile. The picture of me (yuck) was only taken b/c I bugged people about belly pictures, so there ya go. The last one was just cute of Kayden.

Oh What a Day!

I had such a great and productive day yesterday. I had a list of errands to run and returns to make and since Mom was off from school we made a day of it. She also treated me to a pedicure (probably b/c I can't see my toes and they really needed it). The place we went was so nice. They serve you a drink in a crystal glass, give you a pillow for your book/magazine, carry your purse for you. Really the royal treatment. Side note: one of the polishes was called, "Save the Queens toes". I think I laughed for about 5 min. Anyway, we had a great day and then we cooked out at my aunts. Hope everyone else had a good Labor Day!
