Still here.....

Ugh. Last day of July. I thought for sure we would have little V home by now....not going into August still pregnant. And the kicker is that for the past few days I have felt terrific! completely and utterly good. My swelling has gone down, my heartburn just about went away completely, my back quit hurting, my hips stopped aching, and I've been sleeping through the nights. It's SO wierd!! But to counteract that, Vi has been more active then I ever would have though possible at this stage! It's actually painful how much she is moving around in there, lol. People at work even comment on how my belly just flops all around as she's kicking and squirming, and dancing around, lol. It gets pretty uncomfortable after a while....

38 Week Appt

Another week down, lol. I met with Dr. Weibel today and he is so incredibly nice! My bp was a little up (130/80) and I gained one pound from last week (up 27 total).I was completely surprised (and excited!) that I didn't have an internal today....I've been expecting one every week now with nothing. LOL. But he did say that next week there would be one, yuck. But hopefully we won't have to wait that long. :) I really am hoping that little Vi comes tomorrow! Tomorrow was Mike's Mom's birthday and it would be so insanely awesome (yes I used those words together!) for her and Vi to share a birthday. :heart: So here is my planned day....wake up and go to car dealership at 10:45 for car appraisal. Leave with new suv. Go out to lunch with Livi while Mike goes to dentist to get tooth pulled at 3:30. Around 4pm contractions can start, and we can get to the hospital around 6ish. Have baby somewhere around 10pm. Go to bed, and wake up refreshed with a new little one. :) Sound like a good plan?? I thought so too!.....

Ugh I am SO uncomfortable anymore! My feet started really swelling this past Thursday/Friday, and yesterday when I woke up, I had the pitted edema all the way up my right shin :( My feet are so swollen, my baby toe on the right foot actually CRACKED and was bleeding!! They hurt so bad, and it doesn't matter if I put them up or not, they don't get any better no matter what I do. Today my back has really been bothering me, and my belly actually feels like it's going to rip open, or fall I'm hoping that this means that little Vi is going to come this week...I would LOVE for her to come Thursday the 30th...that was Mike's Mom's birthday and I think it would be awesome for them to share that! I have a Dr's appt on Wednesday, and I'm sure if my BP goes up again (usually it's 120/80....last Wed it was 134/81) and my swelling is still horrible (don't see it going away....) maybe she'll just send me to the hospital then :)
Here's the's from a week ago, but I have yet to take one for this week...

Boom Over the Bay! 4th of July

It was awesome being so close to both the fireworks, and the Brig Niagara! Just a few pics though since once it got dark it was firework time!

Erie shoreline...we look like we could be city! LOL

Livi's first fish!

Well I guess I'm a little late in posting about this, but what else is new?? LOL. We went out on the boat for the 4th of July and it was awesome being so close to the fireworks in the Bay! Livi and Mason absolutely loved it and were so excited being out there. And while we waited for them to begin, we fished a little. Well, ok, "I" didn't fish, but Nana was helping Livi and Pap was with Mase. And don't ya know....Livi caught a fish!! She was SO excited about it and is still telling everyone about it :) We didn't keep it since we didn't catch anymore then that one (good fishermen we are!) but we are definitely going to be out there a lot this summer....perch....mmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Getting the minnows out

Livi loved the bucket of "tiny Nemos"....

35 Week Appt!

I had my 35 week appt yesterday with the hottest Dr I've ever met! He was gorgeous and super sweet! LOL. Luckily it wasn't an internal exam week :P But he was really nice which was wonderful since my last meeting with Dr. Finn wasn't so great. But everything is looking great, but baby is still breech. On our u/s on the 21st if she's still sitting that way, the c-section will be scheduled, and he said that they won't let me go past 39 end of JULY! WOW!!! It's so scary that it's so close now!

Stretch marks are not fair

Ugh. I barely got any stretchmarks when I was pregnant with I guess I was naive to go into this pregnancy assuming (hoping?) for the same. Nope. They are steadily growing, and not only are they uglier then ever, but they itch and hurt. It's that burning, aching, itching feeling that keeps me in pain. Ugh. Even Mike has commented on how painful they look....oh yeah, they do. Sucky. How is it that some women get through multiple pregnancies without a trace of a mark, then others just get marred?? And to think that I still have 5 more weeks to go...I know it's going to get much worse before it gets better. Blech.
