38 Weeks!

We are down to weekly appointments! My Dr. is back and so now I can relax and Peyton can come. I weighed in at whopping 190lbs. I know it’s from the all Milk I've been drinking. I can't get enough of it. I'm at about a gallon every 2 days. Don't judge! :) I have kind of been dreading this appointment, but really excited for it all the same time. I knew he was going to check me... and he did just that. He was a little surprised to find that I am 80% effaced and ALMOST dilated to a 3. He said not quite, but pretty much. This was not a pleasant experience... Then he said "Do you want me to strip your membranes?" I was told by a few people to have this done and so of course I said yes. I'm not going to lie this hurt. I would do it again though it was bearable. He said "I can't promise anything, but I wouldn't be surprised if you have her this week. I don't want to get your hopes up though."  Mike and I went home and watched T.V. when my stomach started going crazy. I didn't have any labor contractions that I know of. They were defiantly Braxton Hicks. Short, irregular and painless. Last night the drain has been un-corked. I say that in code because it grosses me out and it's TMI, but it's the truth. Anyway no real contractions yet, so I came to work today hoping for some pain or at least some contractions I can time. Nothing yet... I actually keep telling myself she isn't going to come till the 19th or the 27th. Just so I don't go crazy.

If she comes on the 19th it would be epic! Mike and I met the 19th of Dec. 2006 and he purposed two years later on the 19th 2008. So having her on the 19th 2010 would be wonderful, but deep down I don't think that will happen. Sorry Colby I know you want her to being your birthday and all. :)
The 27th is also another wonderful day. It's Chase and Dane's birthday and also my uncle Doug's.
Only Heavenly Father knows when this little angel will make her day-beau.

Mike my sweet husband wanted to go to the hospital when the Braxton Hicks started. He is just so sweet always worried about me and P. He is going to be such a great dad; this little girl is going to have him wrapped around her finger, as if she doesn't already. :) He is looking for the perfect 1st year Christmas Ornament for her. He also bought the cutest little shoes for her first present, don't you worry I'll post pictures since he's already wrapped and put them under the tree.

My family is taking a poll of when she will arrive and her weight. We took this on Sunday before my Dr. appointment.


Dad-16th  6lbs 8oz
Mom -17th 6lbs 12oz
Ashton- 17th 9.0lbs
Whitney- 20th 7lbs 6oz
Colton- 15th 7lbs 1oz
Lynne- 19th 7lbs11oz
Chase- On his honeymoon
Tillie- 18th - On honeymoon
Nikki-13th 6lbs 10oz
Mike- 19th 7lbs 9oz
Hannah- 16th 8lbs 1oz
Thersea- Sick at home
Dane- 14th 6lbs 7 oz

I put my hands 3 different ways so you can get the full effect. I shouldn't have worn black today so that you can see how big I really am, but here is a close example.

I can't believe she'll be here any day! I am so excited for you to be a mommy and Mike to be a daddy. The 19th WOULD be awesome but I don't think you'll last that long. I think the 11th would be cool because then it would be 12-11-10 but... I think you'll have little Peyton on the 15th and she'll weigh 7 lbs 4 oz. Can't wait to hear.

My guess is 8 lb 8 oz. What do I get if I win? ;)

I wish I lived closer so that I could take your little girls' pictures!!! I'm really into photography these days and I want so badly to do a newborn session. If you are going to get her pictures taken remember to do it before 2 weeks old. I waited too long and Clara was awake and cranky!

I'm so excited for you. You are tough and you will get through labor just great. Honestly, you forget it all when you finally get to hold your little girl. :)
