Home Strecht!

This will be my last post being pregnant!!! I can't wait! Okay we are both so excited=) I told Blake that this will be our last weekend ever not being parents. I asked him what he wanted to do, and he said go eat at Texas Roadhouse! HA Love you honey! But seriously we are so excited to meet our little bean sprout and can't wait to see what he looks like.

Went to the dr today and I thought that I would have progressed a little- WRONG! I'm still the same. But I'm being induced on Wednesday, November 2nd at 3am! It was supposed to be Thursday but schudling got messed up. I asked my doctor to do this because my mom needed to get a plane ticket and needed someone to go stay with Rex. He was going to come out, but he is just too weak and doing chemo treatments. Good thing there's skype so he can see his grandson=)My mom is flying in on the 2nd but not till that night, so by the time she gets here our little one will already be here. Though it'll be nice to have my personal nurse when I go home for a while.
A few things just hit me that made me so excited about becoming a mom: I can't wait to have fun kid parties! Holidays are going to be so much fun, like Halloween and Chirstmas. I have a real reason to go shopping on Black Friday now! Yeah I've traded my Cosmo magezine in for Parents magezine, but love it!

The last month is the worst... I don't feel good at all and I just want Blake to hold me, but it's a little hard (okay VERY HARD) when you have a big belly in the way =( Plus he kicks me pretty hard in my right ribs.
Sleeping: I sleep pretty good from 9:30 until 3 am and then all I do it toss and turn the whole time until I get for practice at 5:10am. Yes people I am one tough cookie to still be getting up and going! Strangely, I like it becuase it helps me focus on something else besides being so uncomfortable these last few days. I'm so proud of my girls! They are serisouly the sweetest young ladies ever and so glad that I decided to help coach them. They make it so enjoyable=) Football season was a great success and now just getting ready for compeition season.
Cravings: I can not get enough yoplait yogurt (if you eat them, save your lids to save lives!), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and oatmeal!
Weight: HA Wouldn't you like to know how much I've gained! I can't wear my wedding ring anymore and can't really wear my boots that zip up. I can barely put socks and shoes on, with this belly being in the way and all.
I do love having long hair, I think this is the longest it's ever been.

We went deer hunting and saw nothing!!!!! I'm pretty sure that I was the only one 9 months pregnant and hunting on a mountain. I'm actually surprised at how good I did hiking around, yeah I'm way slower but I did it =) Blake shot a pretty nice buck on the muzzel loader hunt. He was stoked about it!

Blake got accepted to Colorado! I'm just so proud of him and how hard he works for our little family. Now we are just waiting for an interview from the U. We are crossing our fingers for that school so we don't have to split up our family becuase I have to stay in Utah and do my student teaching for 60 days.

Well our next post will be of our little boy! Named either Bentley, McCoy, or Ryker...
Oh and Happy Halloweeny Everyone!!!!!!

I had a doctor appointment last week(35 weeks) and we found out that I was 75 % thinned out! We were all pretty shocked. Today I had an appointment and come to find out that I'm 75/80 % thinned out and dilated to a 1/ a 2. To be honest I was a little disappointed (just because I'm so sick of being pregnant!)... I thought that I would go in and doc would say 'you are 100% thinned out, dilated to a 4, let's go check you in at the hospital'... SIKE! I only thought this because Blake is out of town. My blood pressure is high for me so if it's high next week then he may start me=) Key word may. Hopefully bean sprout will decided to come before Thursday. I did have my first dream about him last night. I woke up so warm and fuzzy. He had lots of dark dark hair and was a little chunker. I was born with very little strawberry blonde hair and pretty sure that Blake didn't have any hair so I will be very surprised if our little one has any hair too. But who knows!

Blake had a pharmacy school interview like 2 weeks ago in Arizona at Midwestern and got ACCEPTED =) He was told that he wouldn't find out if he got a spot until a week later, but the lady who interviewed him was so impressed that she called Blake the next day! Ha! We were shocked. So proud of him! Blake has another pharmacy school interview today in Denver, Colorado. You may ask why did he go to another interview if he got accepted: Well AZ is a 3 all year round school and CO is a 4 year school so we wanted two options.

Last week Blake and I took some maternity pictures down in St. George. It couldn't have gone any more prefect. We had a great photographer and I recommend her!!!!!! Here is her blog, go check her work out! Blake was a great sport! We are doing an ABC book with our maternity and newborn sessions.

I'm pretty lucky that I don't have any stretch marks on my belly =)
I'm so glad that we got these done and can't wait to see the rest in a week!!!!

Have You Ever...

Have you ever gotten terrible news that it's so hard to even explain what comes over your body? I'm not talking about getting bad news that your car needs to be fixed for $900, nor that you find out that you bombed a test thinking that you are a failure in life.

Have you ever been so scared for the next few months to come and go knowing that things will never be the same?I'm not talking about being nervous for a new baby to come into this world, nor knowing where you are going to go graduate school.

Have you ever thought 'why now'? These next few months are suppose to be the most happiest time with Heavenly Father sending us a new life coming, but at the same time as a life may be going Home to Heavenly Father.

Have you ever thought 'wow, that General Conference talk applied directly to my family that it's kind of scary what we just heard'?

Have you ever noticed that whatever you are dealing with in your life, you hear that dreadful topic being sung about on the radio 24/7?

Have you ever had to sit back and watch people you care about be in so much pain knowing that there is nothing you can do for them?

Have you ever felt so helpless?

Have you ever wanted to be so selfish to tell someone you can't just quit now?

Have you ever felt guilty for being a brat growing up when they were only trying to be a father figure in your life?

What's better: Being able to prepare yourself for a tragedy of what may come or just wake up one day and tragedy hits you in the face? This is a toss up! I see the pros and cons of them both.
Pray for strength and courage for my sweet family.

I'm so grateful for Blake, my family, and Blake's family. I'm so glad to have the Church in my life and know that families can be together forever. Having a testimony of eternal life makes things a bit easier knowing life doesn't end here. There are no goodbyes, only see you later.

Love you Mom. Love you Rex, or should we call you Howard;)
