The Beginning of the End

Well I officially mark today the beginning of the end! I started my weekly appointments at the doctors' office today. I had my NST test first which checks Aidan's heartrate, his movement, and my contractions. It can indicate if he is experiencing stress or if there is any other problem going on. Good news! He was doing just fine. The rest of the appointment went fine, and I go back in a week for another NST and appointment with the doctor. I'm just happy that he's doing great, and I'm only going to the Dr once a week, and not twice a week like they thought I might have to! If there are no other complications, then they will probably induce me at 39 weeks. So he might be a little early, but not too much.

It's raining presents!

Today another shower was held for baby Aidan! We are so lucky to have sooo many people that care about us and our little boy! Today my school had a shower and everyone was so generous!! We have a very spoiled baby boy and he's not even here yet! It was a fun time and the cake and punch was sooo yummy! We are so thankful to have so many caring friends in our life.

33 Weeks Baby Bump!!

32 Week Dr Appt

Well I went and saw my Dr today and she said everything is looking good. They haven't gotten the results from the specialist yesterday yet, but she said that since the doctor there didn't talk to me that was a good thing. In fact things are going so well, that instead of starting my weekly visits next week, I get to go 2 whole weeks before going back to the doctor!! I'll have the NST (stress test) and a regular office visit... and then we'll see where it goes from there!

A Visit to the Specialist - 31 weeks 5 days

Today's appt at Phoenix Perinatology went well today. The U/S tech didn't say too much, just that everything looks fine and that if anything he's a little big! Oh boy! I guess he is almost 4 lbs. I uploaded some pics, but again... the little bugger kept putting his hands in front of his face, and then minute he moved his hands away he put his feet in front of his face! I don't think we've gotten a decent face shot of him since about 20 weeks. It was funny b/c she was trying to listen to the blood flow in the cord and he kept kicking the cord! Lil bugger!! But at least he's healthy! I think we've got quite a little pistol on our hands! I go to my Dr tomorrow so I'm sure we'll find out more info then...

Baby Shower

Today I had my baby shower. My friend Monica hosted it at her house and it was just wonderful. Baby Aidan was spoiled by all of our friends and I think he's going to be the best dressed baby in all of Phoenix!! And now we even have diapers! The food was fantastic and I hope everyone had a great time! We are so grateful for all the generous and special people in our lives. Unfortunately I left my camera at Monica's house, so it might be a few days before I get the pictures added. Thank you everyone!!
The awesome Diaper Cake Monica made
Some of the wonderful gifts we received for Aidan

Too funny!

Ok, so I have been sick since Sunday. well this week is parent teacher conferences and yesterday I had 13 conferences. By the ime I got home, I had no voice left and it has still deserted me today. Since i had no conferences today, I came home early, took a nap, and have barely gotte out of bed since. But I am starting to get bored since Ian's at drill this weekend, and I found this interesting website!! Ha Ha!! Way too much time on my hands! Anyway, you can take two people's pictures and see what the aby will look like... of course I couldn't resist, so here you go... the most normal one is first, but the rest are pretty funny!!! Especially the red hair... where did that come from?
