pushing 38 weeks

Since I never get ready(because my clothes don't fit) I decided to take my 38 week picture a day early because I actually had clothes on... OH and they were my clothes not my husbands:) Look at baby Kingston and how big he is getting! Just growing away in my belly:) I think Dave is ready for him to come, he keeps saying I'm excited for Kingston to join our family:) He kissed my belly the other day and said "come to us soon son":) haha I love that he is being like this! This whole process has been really scary and both of us especially Dave's emotions have been alllllll over the place so to see Dave the way he is and feel that he is ready is so exciting for me! At my doctors appointment they told me that i have lost 1 1/2 lbs, but not to worry its normal for smaller girls towards the end... I'm still debating on if I'm going to tell Dave that. Hes so worried about having a small baby!!! Its a guy thing. They also said My stomach is really tight (i guess which is good) and that Kingston isn't quite 6lbs yet. Yah right on that one!!! I mean not that I don't think they know but this baby he taking up every inch of my belly and my hubby is a big boy... I just cant wait know whats going to happen and when it will happen for that matter. Ill keep you updated.. who knows maybe the next post will be pictures of our precious baby boy

37 weeks

**Lets start with a side note.... please don't mind my Beautiful smiling face!!!!!
So I made it to the 37 weeks mark and to be honest I was welcomed with bad news.(I'm dramatic) I'm now going to weekly appointments and had my strep culture. As far as that everything is golden( or at least I haven't gotten a call yet so I'm imaging its OK). However, after that we started talking about my delivery and when I'm due. Well, my due date started out at may 14th then went to the 12th so at the appointment he said to leave it back at the May 14th BUT, he doesn't think i will deliver till the 18th or 19th but will let me stay pregnant till the 24th BECAUSE THEY DON'T INDUCE ON FRIDAYS!!!!!! Not exactly what i wanted to hear!!!! He also shot down my idea that full time hair stylist deliver early. :( so now i think I'm going to be pregnant for ever and Kingston is going to be the first human to grow up inside of me!!!! and I'm going to stretch out and be squished FOREVER!!!!! The one good thing about my doctors appointment was that he told me my baby is in position and has dropped a little that if I happened to deliver he would be OK and ready:) . I don't think I'm quite ready to be honest. I think Dave and I need another week or two but if I go over, THINGS WILL NOT BE OK ANYMORE.

sorry about my negative note. I am still happy and Love this baby inside me but as cute as he is in my belly I bet he is ever cuter in my arms! and I'm still enjoying this adventure

Im officially "nesting"

Yep its true I have been nesting... This week I started washing all and I mean ALL of Kingston's clothes and towels and blankets etc... I also bought some cute little baskets to organize all his little misc items that I have no place to put. It was fun organizing and feeling like I'm getting close to the end. Today we got the travel system from my parents and its so Perfect. We are going to put the car seat in the car and set it all up JUST IN CASE! I told myself that when I turned 36 weeks that I would put together my hospital bag and now that I'm here I think I'm still a little early so Sunday I'm going to do it:) that sounds better to me. However I got Kingston's diaper bag all ready to take to the hospital. Oh,, By the way I LOVE MY DIAPER BAG. My husband went above and beyond and got me a Really nice one from Nordstrums. I'm going to be a stylish mama with my cool bag and cutest little stud.
side note... I hope I keep this nesting thing up after kingston is here.. I have some ideas for MY ROOM
now on to to reality... Pregnancy is rough, or at least its starting to get that way!!! Last night I i slept sooo bad I couldn't believe it. I was so crampy and achy AND SQUISHED! It was not fun and I'm really hoping that its not how the last 4 weeks are going to be. Hopefully it was just a bad night. And today was rough as well! For some reason I only have tough days on my day off.. why cant it be when I'm supposed to be working so I'm not wasting valuable time with my husband(if your my client its nothing personal, I love my job) anyways, my belly is GROWWWING at a rapid pace and I almost to the point where I am about to say... I'M DONE-but I'm not there yet....GETTING THERE, maybe by my next post, hopefully not but MAYBE!!!!!
36 weeks =28 days (give or take)

35 weeks and Easter

I cant believe I only have 5 weeks left till our precious babies here..... HE BETTER BE HERE!!! I'm a little late updating because this has been quite the week. On Wednesday, which is when i usually update, Dave went in for surgery... we didn't know when the surgery was set for. Weird i know but we pretty much were on call! So since Dave couldn't eat all day we had to keep his mind busy so he wouldn't think about food. We ended up going into the hospital at 5pm and didn't get surgery till 10pm!!! Pretty much we had a lot of time on our hands. We took the picture in the room:) waiting for it to be our turn. Anyways, after a long wait at the hospital he had a great surgery (on his shoulder) and only needed to be scoped. He now has 6 weeks in a sling and then 6 weeks of rehab... Were hoping that by July he will be able to play golf and enjoy some of the summer. But hes doing great I'm so proud of him:) date night(thought i would throw that out there)

So this is on Easter Dave woke up and painted this shelf for baby Kingston's room and wanted to get it up and ready before his surgery... I was very thankful! Easter was so great for us... Kinda our first Easter married because last year on Easter we were on our honeymoon. So I stressed about starting our traditions. I cant be having my husband go to work and hearing all the fun things his clients wives did and have nothing to brag about... so this year I started small but I did something and each year will get a little better! Dave woke up to a Easter basket with all his favorite treats and then he made us waffles with strawberries and whipped cream and then for dinner I made(wink wink) a honey baked ham with green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes, and rolls!!! It was a great dinner... Dave's dad and brother came over to enjoy my home made meal:) Easter was a success.... oh ya except the 3 hours of contractions I had! don't worry NO BABY YET... but it made us realize things are close. I went to the doctors and no weight gain this check up:) baby is getting bigger, blood pressure and the heart beat are perfect!!!
