40 Week Pictures

There you have it. 40 weeks (tomorrow) and SOOO uncomfortable!!! I swear, it feels way bigger than it looks in these pictures. Here is a "bare" shot so you can get an idea of how big it really is.

P.S. I appreciate your sympathy...

40 Weeks Tomorrow.... and Ready to DIE!

I had another appointment today with my midwife. I had her do "something" (trying to keep this G rated) to try to get labor started. We'll see if it works!!! I'm only dilated 1 cm, 50% effaced, and she's minus 3. Don't know exactly what that means as far as how close I am... but hopefully things will progress!! Things are looking good with Camryn (of course). She's just happy as a clam in there. I, on the other hand, am ready for her to get OUT!! Any suggestions?? P.S. I tried to post pictures, but they wouldn't upload. Will try again when Rich gets home tonight!! XOXO

Ok, so I have promised to post these pictures for about a week now... and I am FINALLY getting around to it!

I needed a headrest for my car seat, and I wanted to be a little picky about getting one that coordinated. You can't have a stinking cute car seat cover, and hide it behind a headrest that doesn't match!!

Now I totally should have taken a "before" picture for this one. I had a friend who gave me this swing that she was done using (She is SO NICE, she gave me LOADS of fun stuff!). Swing was in mint condition, but the fabric was not my favorite, so I made this cover!! I think it turned out so great (yes I am tooting my own horn... I'm not really that great at the sewing thing!).

My cute friend Aymee made this sign for Camryn's door in all my colors! She is so crafty!!

This is the updated dresser top. Not the best picture, but I am working with a 2 megapixel camera here!! (Pathetic, huh?) Aymee made the tiny picture frame and both of the standing clothespins in the back holding quotes.

Here is the view from the door. Don't mind the stroller, the metal cutters on the changing table, the diaper bag hanging from the crib, or the baby monitor on top of the crib.

Here is the front view of the crib (complete with the magnet board we made to hold Camryn's name!) Again, ignore the vacuum. We still need to clean out space in a closet for it...

And I just realized this is almost identical to the above picture, but minus the magnet board. More of my cute crib!! I LOVE IT!!! (I had some major drama getting it here. Ordered it February 5th, was back ordered until early April... then back ordered til the end of April... THEN back ordered until May 28!!!!!! So I looked around and found it at another store in Salt Lake.. and they had one IN STOCK for $50 cheaper than the other place! I canceled my previous order, received a full refund, and grabbed this!!!)

A Totally FABULOUS Appointment...

So today I went in to meet with my midwife. I haven't been doing the posterior exercises because I am SO lazy, and as Lindsay pointed out, what will prevent her from rolling back to posterior after I work hard to get her to go anterior?? So I was kind of expecting to be told that I need to be better and do those, but guess what?? Camryn flipped ALL ON HER OWN!! Yay!! That's my obedient girl!! She is now on the left side, right where she is supposed to be, and has dropped pretty low (probably explains why I have to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME!). I didn't gain ANY weight this week (YAY!), I'm measuring 36cm, which is right on schedule. Last week I was 37cm, but they said that because she dropped lower, that could be why it looks like my stomach is shrinking. I wouldn't mind a shrinking baby! Easier to deliver!! So yeah, I am pretty excited about this appointment. It's only noon here, but this is looking like it is going to be a GREAT day! Now if only my crib would arrive... XOXO
