update

I have been so busy recently that I have not had the chance to update our blog. We are busy getting ready for the arrival of Mr. Caleb. Michael and I are so excited we can hardly stand it! Our spare time is spent getting his nursery together, washing his clothes and going to all of my wonderful showers!!!! Oh and any other time I have is dedicated to planning to be out of school for 12 weeks!!!

The pregnancy is still going fine. I love feeling Caleb kick everyday and watching him grow (I swear my stomach grows by the minute!!). I am starting to swell, which is not fun. I don't know if my feet have grown or if my feet are too fat to fit all the way into them! :) I can no longer wear my engagement ring (the wedding ring it a little bigger). I am still enjoying being pregnant, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't ready for him to be here. I went to the doctor today, and it seems as though Caleb may still be breech. I go back September 17th (36 1/2 weeks) and that is when my "waist down" exams start. She said that they would check my cervix, check for dilation and if they couldn't feel a definite head then we would have to have an ultrasound to see where he is hanging out. She also said that next week we will discuss what was next (to turn the baby, c-section, etc.). I kinda hope he is still breech next week so I can have another ultrasound (wrong, I know!!).

I will post pics of Caleb's room and me soon!

I remember all of a sudden not being able to wear my wedding band or engagement ring for about the last month of pregnancy---I kept being paranoid that people wouldn't know I was married :-) They fit again soon after Sarah was born, though!

Not too much longer!

I want to see pics of the nursery! I need to make a trip to your house to see it in person, though.

How exciting...the countdown is about to start. Hope all goes well at your upcoming appointments and they say you are dialating quickly, he is head down and the baby will be here soon!

Wow...you are so close! It won't be long now :) I had Drew at 36 weeks 3 days...so you are super close :) I will pray that he turns...you don't want a c-section...recovery is so much easier with a vaginal delivery!

good luck today!!
