Doctor Visit and things....

Sorry I've been a slacker on the doctor update on Wednesday, I have been crazy busy...

So I went to the doctor and Hayden is still in there. He is healthy and happy. I also had my glucose test and a flu shot. Hopefully the results from my test will come back soon. It is my last BIG test before he gets here... other than the strep culture thing.... eishhh that sounds fun. 4 more weeks till my next visit then its every 2 weeks after that... This is all going by so fast! It's kinda crazy! And can I just vent about how much I hate having to be weighed every time I go. I know gaining some weight is good, and it’s all for a good cause... but every time I step on the scale I am always like, "I GAINED HOW MUCH!" It's always this huge shock to me... and I am just waiting for the nurse to be say, "Oh... wow... well ok, step down fatty, here is your cup for the next fun part of the visit." I just hope eventually my body will go back to at least its semi normal state, and my uterus will not stay the size of a basketball forever. Oh and apparently this last stretch of pregnancy it’s normal to gain like 11 more pounds... oh yay? (oh and apparently “the magic sheet,” from my dream, that makes you fall asleep and then boom baby… doesn’t exist. Medicine hasn’t come that far yet… bummer. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about a post about my dream is before this one :) )

My mom is off for UEA and it has been sooo fun hanging out and going shopping with her! We went to Sam's club and I got my very own membership, I am so excited. Especially since while we were there we found a big thing of Dreft and other fun baby things. (Yes I think that finding Dreft is fun, I'm not really sure why.) We also found some cute little baby clothes there. The next day we went to Shopko and we got Hayden's crib! It was on sale and I am so excited about it. It is a darker-ish brown color, it’s a 4 in 1 crib and at the bottom of it there is a drawer for all my extra blanket, sheet and baby needs! The drawer is my favorite part. As soon as we get it up I’ll take a picture. We also went to Wal-Mart and got some bibs and sleepers and blankets and a thermometer, my first thing of newborn diapers and wipes, all sorts of things. I love spending time with my mom, it’s so fun. By the end of the day we were both extremely tired. I didn't realize what 5 hours of shopping and being pregnant does to your feet and back. Thanks so much mom for spending the day with me and helping me find things for Hayden! I am so thankful for you, I don’t know what I would do without you, and especially now that I’m gonna be a mommy! You’re the best, Love you!

I'm in my last trimester, so weird... I never thought it would come. I'm slowly building up my baby paraphernalia and slowly losing my mind... I don't remember anything! Everything goes in one ear and out the other. I carry around a notebook with me all the time anyway, but I use it ALL the time now! I have to write things down or I will totally forget. Hayden is stealing all my brain cells so hopefully he will be really smart, but he just might have a brain dead mama. I am now a list freak! A list for groceries, a list of baby things still to get, a list of baby things I already have so I know how many sleepers and clothes I have of what size, a list of things I want so hopefully the law of attraction will work in my favor... a list for everything...

Cory and I are going to attempt registering next week too to start preparing for the baby shower. I figured I had better get on that since everyone will be getting crazy busy with the holidays coming up. I also have found to bedding sets I like to go with my transportation slash Dr. Seuss, "Oh the places you'll go..." theme.... I can't decide what bedding set I like more though... I think I've looked at them so many times I have no opinion anymore... if anyone wants to give me their opinion Ill be more than grateful. Just click on the link...
The first one is: www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5715135#Accessories+to+Buy
And the second one is: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6958807

Thanks so much everyone for your patience with my ramblings... Everyone have a fabulous weekend!

You're almost there!! I like the 1st bedding set by the way. Trust me you will use your Sam's Club membership all the time! I love the smell of the Dreft baby laundry detergent I washed all of Peyton's bedding and clothes in it about 2 weeks before I had her and I would just go into her room and smell all of her stuff I loved it!

Give me the scoop on your shower info. Day/ theme/ etc...? Obviously I can't be there but I'd still like to know.

By the way- you're going to love what I got you today but I'm still going to make you wait for it. :o)

You are so cute! Ya the strep test is not so fun... but you are right once you get that test done, it is smooth sailing from their. Well except delivering the baby :) You will get your body back, well in my case somewhat of my body back. But yes I promise once you have him, give or take a few weeks you will feel awesome!

Last trimester is the hardest b/c you can't wait to meet your little man. Don't worry about the weight some get their body;s back and some don't. Of course I'm in the some don't category. But I am finally starting to realize my size 2 figure is gone forever....someday maybe I'll be an 8 LOL!

I love cribs with drawers! I love changing tables with drawers too! The drawer in the changing table should almost be mandatory since its great for medicines, thermometers and diaper creams LOL! Hang in there your 2/3 of the way there!

So NOT even close to even- 3 days with Mickey versus 9 months of feeling a person grow inside you. I think I can gloat a little more than I have. No worries about the pictures. By the way- it's a Merchant tradition that you call someone while riding Thunder Mountain. So, uh, be ready for that call.
