Hospital Tour

We got to tour the hospital where we will be giving birth to our little girl today. It was under construction and a little outdated, but for the most part it was nice. We get our own room the whole time, which I thought would be a given, but apparently it's not. There is also a chair in the overnight room that turns into a bed so Jeremy can spend the night. Also they don't take the baby out of the room at all unless there is an issue, which I'm sure there will not be. I told Jeremy I wanted to ask if they will take her if I ask them too, but I guess that's not very nice. ;) Oh and baby is kicking a lot more today, thank goodness.

Back to work

Not for me, for Jeremy. He has somehow managed to get by since we moved here, with minimal training and a couple days volunteering at the rodeo. He started at work today, on a temporary flight (we still don't know his permanent schedule). Poor guy had to get up at 3:30 this morning to make it there a little after 4, and he wont get home till 6!

Jayden has all of a sudden taken after her mom, and has decided to be lazy the past couple days. I haven't been feeling her move very much yesterday or today. I called the doctor and they had me come in for a non-stress test. Yeah you heard me right, they had me come in, not go to the emergency room. This doctor is awesome! Anyway her heartbeat was great so they sent me home, I loved being able to sit there hooked up to a monitor and hear her heartbeat for a good 20 minutes. Such a wonderful sound. I just wish she would start kicking like she has been for the past couple of weeks.Still no acid reflux and I haven't thrown up in over a week. Although I think I spoke too soon when I said Braxton Hicks didn't hurt, yeah...they do! And p.s. why wasn't I ever informed of the fact that you get two months of "fake" contractions on top of the "real" ones?

Well you will all be proud of me, Jeremy had to work today so I had to take Matt to the airport all by myself, and I did it without getting lost.....dang I'm awesome!

31 Weeks

How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Up about 30 lbs total. Seriously, this is cutting it pretty close, doctor says it's good so far, but I'm not sure how long it will stay ok.
Maternity clothes? yep.
Sleep: I'm exhausted, I keep hearing all these different reasons people can't sleep. For me it's just peeing. I'm up every 2 hours to pee. I think it's mother natures way of getting me ready to be up every two hours with a crying baby.
Best moment this week: Getting the nursery fully finished
Movement: Jayden is very strong, she actually woke me up this morning kicking the crap out of me
Food cravings: same as pre-pregnancy, everything bad
Gender: GIRL
Labor Signs: None. BH contrax are starting to give me hell.
Belly Button in or out? In, but strongly threatening to come out
What I miss: sleeping all night
What I am looking forward to: Getting this baby out of me
Weekly Wisdom: Don't plan to be outside in the sun all day
Milestones: Jayden is almost 4 pounds and is about 17 inches!

Frontier Days

Jeremy's friend Matt is in town and we all went to frontier days. Turns out being almost 8 months pregnant makes it kinda hard to be walking around outside all day. We started out at the fair, which is pretty much exactly like the rodeo threw up on the Pima County Fair. A whole lot of cow skin and rhinestone vests. It was fun though, but after 2 hours of walking around in the sun, I was done. So the boys went to the rodeo and I went home to nap. Overall it was a pretty cool experience.

I got my first Braxton Hicks contraction today. It wasn't too bad, and only lasted a couple minutes..... too bad the real ones aren't that easy. Jayden has also taken a liking to punching me in the kidneys. I took my glucose test about two weeks ago. For those of you who have never had one, they basically make you starve yourself, choke down orange syrup and then they poke you with a needle and take your blood. But really it's not that bad, the worst part is fasting. It's actually pretty cruel how long they make a pregnant woman go without food. Because I'm so awesome, I passed with no problems. Next on the list is crossing my fingers I don't get the weight talk....... we'll see.

30 weeks

I'm 30 weeks and 5 days today. My tummy is growing everyday, but it does seem like it has grown significantly in the last 2 weeks. Jayden has started to limit her movements to mostly pushing, rolling, and of course head butting mommy in the ribs. My doctor prescribed nexium, which is a little magic purple pill that has completely cured my acid reflux, and my throwing up. Since I've been taking those I have been feeling great! I'm getting a little impatient and want to meet my little one soon, but I know she's not ready. We are planning on going to the famous Cheyenne frontier days tomorrow, I'll let you know how it goes.
