It's Baby Time!

Thursday, July 31, 2014

After my emotional day yesterday Robyn was SO sweet and suggested we go have some fun! We walked the mall and got dinner (and I got my nails redone!). I came home and had a few contractions and did think "maybe this is it" but ended up going to bed feeling normal. I woke up at 5 this morning dreaming about a beeping sound and realized when I woke that Britt's smoke detector was beeping all night for a dead battery (she slept through it like a CHAMP!). I was actually able to go back to sleep and woke up at 6:15 feeling contractions. I've always wondered how I'd know if it was happening at night. I was still half-sleeping through them and switched sides thinking changing position may make them stop. But they didn't. So I browsed Facebook and waited a bit. I got up at 6:30 and went ahead and got ready. Zach had slept upstairs (I have become quite the noise maker in my sleep) so I texted him at 6:45 and told him he may want to get ready before the kids woke up

39 Week OBGYN Visit

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I just got home from my last visit with Stacy. She is having her baby this Friday so today was our last chance to talk and for her to see me before she is gone on maternity leave. Everything looks good. Baby's heart rate was in the 130's and sounded great which is a huge blessing. When she checked me she said I'm now 3-4 cm dilated, 70% effaced, and -1 station . So for sure progress has been made since last week. (Last week I was 3 cm dilated, 60% effaced and -2 station). She said my bag of waters is detached from the wall which is a good sign too. At this point I already had Kye so I obviously didn't have an appointment. At this point I had also already had Britt. But I went into labor with her the day of this appointment. When I went to the appointment that morning I was 4 cm dilated, 90% effaced and -1 station. I went into labor a couple hours later. Since I've never reached my due date before, I have no clue what happens. I wanted to talk as much as I co

Britt Monthly Summary: June

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

All about Britt from June! Mommy/Daddy Time:  I can think of VERY few times when Zach and I have gotten to spend time together alone with JUST Britt? We take dates with each kid pretty often, but rarely do we get the chance to be the two of us with just one child. Kye went to spend the night with Aunt Karen so Zach and I enjoyed our sweet girl! It was crazy how EASY she was when it was just her! We often think of Britt as our spirited "tougher" child...especially in this two year old phase of life. But when it was just her by herself with us? She was awesome!  Britt and I went on a fun golf cart ride around the neighborhood while Zach made her dinner! She wanted to rock her sunglasses during her dinner ;) After dinner we went to McDonald's! They had a great special on 49 cent ice cream cones so we thought it'd be a fun special treat for the three of us to enjoy :) Kye stayed at Aunt Karen's through nap time the next day
