DR Update

So I went to the doctor yesterday & I got some scary news! Paisley is expected to be BIG...Dr. Tran ordered that I get an ultra sound to see just how big she is! If she was between 7.5 and 8 lbs I will be induced next Friday...wow so soon! I had noticed last week Dr. Tran was off a week and so I asked her about it...so I was right! So 39 weeks is when she can induce me...that would be Wednesday but Dr. Tran has to be on call since it would be an elected induction (Hospital Policy). So I went for the ultrasound and Paisley was estimated to be 9 LBS!!! So Dr. Tran called and told me that we would induce Friday...and there was and 80% chance that I would be able to vaginally deliver considering she was so big. It is very important to me to deliver this way, so we will see!! :) So now it's just a waiting game! My mom will be back from Cali on Monday so lets hope Paisley isn't ready to come sooner!!!!

Shower # 3

I'm kinda late blogging about this ...it just kinda slipped my mind. April 10th we had my last shower, it was my biggest shower for family and friends. We got sooo much stuff & it as all so awesome, thank you everyone. Paisley is one lucky little girl, so many people made her quilts, afghans, and blankets, they are all so special! Growing up my favorite gift to get from my Grandma was a new quilt, we sleep with a quilt made by her every night! :D Some of the other awesome gifts we got were, the swing, bouncer,so many cute clothes, books, activity centers, car seat, stroller, and high chair to just name a few!

Well I went for my appointment yesterday and again absolutely no change! Apparently Dr. Tran and I are using different due dates b/c after I left I realized she told me that I'm not full term yet and will be next week....For my May 11th due date I would have been full term Wednesday and for the May 8th due date I would have been full term Sunday. I go back Friday so I'm going to have to ask her what day are you using as my due date?
Anyways, I've gained 3 more lbs and that puts me at a total gain of 20lbs...not too bad considering she said recommend weight gain was 20-25 lbs so lets just hope I don't blow up now. Paisley's HB was 145, thats pretty normal. Dr. Tran projects she will be an 8lb to 8.5lb baby and right now thinks she is about 6.5lbs. She did say I don't think you will have a scrawny little baby you will definitely have a big baby. We kinda touched on induction and from what I gathered shes not really a fan to do that until 40-41 weeks or if she notices that the baby is getting too big. We also talked about epidurals, the part I'm the most nervous about, she will give it to me as soon as she realizes I'm in active labor ... so to my sister in law that was a relief lol!
Wednesday night I just knew I was about to have her, I got a huge spurt of energy, Monday & Tuesday I had been contracting about 10 min apart, Joseph told me that it really looked like I had dropped so I made sure everything was packed & washed...ok so it has been for about 2 weeks now...but I added to it! Needless to say I didn't have her! My Mom is going to California next week so that is totally out of the question but the moment she gets back I hope this little girl graces us w/ her presence!!! :)

Shower #2

This Sunday we had our second shower, this one was with Joseph's side of the family. It was so nice to see everyone and the shower was great! :) Here are a few pictures:

Daddy's New Toy

Fuel prices have gone up, the cheapest price for diesel is $3.79 so to fill up Joseph's truck we almost need a loan! LOL! He's been looking at the particular Dune Buggy on Craig's List for at least 3-4 months, however I didn't think it was really a practical buy at this point. He finally did some convincing and this is going to be his new ride back and forth to work...I can't wait to see this ... especially on a rainy day hahaha! : P

Week 35

Week 35 (4-4-2011)

Approximately 5 Weeks To Go

How far along? 34 Weeks & 5 Days

Total weight gain: 14 Lbs

Maternity clothes? Yep

Sleep: Is starting to be an issue...It's hard to get comfortable therefore I don't sleep well...doesn't help I'm just exhausted all the time.

Movement: She loves to move!!

Gender: Girl! Paisley Renee Penney

Labor Signs: No however a few weeks ago I lost some of my mucus plug...and this morning I lost more...so maybe when I go Friday she will say I'm starting to dilate!

Belly Button in or out? It's getting really flat!

Cravings:Well I had some disgusting Chinese food on Saturday so I'm pretty sure that Chinese food has been crossed off of the list!

What I miss: I know this sounds ugly but being asked every 5 min are you ok...how are you feeling...everything ok?

Weekly Wisdom: I guess it's not wisdom just a special moment.... We had our second shower yesterday and Joseph's mom got us the glider we had registered for. She told us the only stipulation is she gets to come over and rock her to sleep at least once, I told her come any time! On the way to dinner Joseph and I were talking about how she made that comment and I said I want her to know she is welcome anytime and can rock her to sleep whenever...he said WELL THAT IS IF I'M NOT ALREADY DOING IT! hahah! I said are you serious, he said yes I can't wait to rock her to sleep, I've rocked other babies but this on is my own. He then asked me you're not so excited to get to do that, it's not that I'm not its just that I know it will be something I do all the time so I haven't really put much thought into it. He said I would be fine if she would come right now I'm ready to hold her! It was just special to hear how excited he is for her to be here, not that I didn't already know it was just nice to hear him elaborate on it! :)
