33 weeks and 3 days!

It's been a long while since my last blog and I apologize. I don't know how so many people keep up with these things like they do! But for those of you who are reading that have been pregnant before, life gets pretty busy about this time and that's exactly what i've been. As you can tell, my eyes in my picture are like, "oh my gosh, i can't believe i'm getting a picture taken of myself this large!" hahaha. Well, since my last post, I've had two showers and they were absolutely wonderful. Thank you to all of you guys for the wonderful gifts for myself and Jaycee. She is completely "hooked up!" I couldn't ask for better friends and family.

I go back to see Dr. Howell this Wednesday. I now go every two weeks and then after this appointment, I will go every week. It just makes the anticipation so much stronger when your appointments get closer and closer together. Yay!! When i was there two weeks ago, i asked him if he could tell if she was still breech. He didn't want to push on her too hard, but he told me to come into this other room where he had one of his dads old ultrasound machines, and sure enough she has turned HEAD DOWN! He told me that she could still flip flop for a few more weeks and I said, "well at least she knows how to get there!" hahaha. I'm so scared of a c-section if you can't tell.

We have also gotten her room pretty much ready since my last post. At the end of this, I have a bunch of pictures that I'm just going to put up of her room and closet! It's so pretty. I could just stand at the doorway of it all day everyday! I don't have anything on the walls yet. I have something ordered off to go above her bed and then initials to go over her dresser and my mom and dad have gotten me the glider that i wanted, it's just not in yet. When Josh and I were putting EVERYTHING together, the best part of it all was the carseat/stroller travel system. Josh learned how to use it first and then he TRIED to teach me. As simple as those things are to use....let's just say that I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I was standing in the middle of the hallway crying b/c he could work it and I couldn't, and i felt like a horrible mother!! hahahahahaha. Needless to say, Josh just laughed at me the whole time i was crying. But I do have the hang of it now, so if we NEED to go out, I feel like I just might be able to do that now.

I think that is it for now. I am going to post all of the pictures of her room at the bottom. I still feel pretty well. I have cut my days down to two days a week, which is working out perfect. I am starting to get pretty swollen, pretty often now. My wedding ring doesn't have a prayer of coming off anytime in the near future. And after I work, I look like i have 5lbs of fluid, not at my ankles, but in all of my toes!!! Which Josh just thinks is a gorgeous site! :) But I will let you guys know the update from the doctor's office. Now that her room is essentially ready, I will be able to keep up with this thing better, I promise!

Quick question....what do i pack for her at the hospital besides clothes?!?! diapers?? pacifiers?? I don't know. And do you guys have any recommendations for something that I absolutely cannot go to the hospital without for myself?!?!
Love you guys and I will update you with Wednesdays appointment!
Layne and Josh!
