39 Weeks…


and still waiting…doctor tomorrow…I guess we shall see then.


38 weeks pregnant…


I am 38 weeks pregnant, and am so ready. I never thought I would feel this ready. I have been cleaning my house, keeping my laundry done, and I honestly feel ready. I feel ginormus, and this baby feels like it weighs 20 lbs. I go to the dr. on Monday, so I am hoping for some really good news.

Happy Anniversary!


Yesterday was Jared and I’s 3rd anniversary! It is hard to believe we have been married for 3 years. But, on the other hand, we were talking, and it kind of seems like we’ve been married forever. (It probably helps that I have been with him since I was 14 years old) We had a quiet evening together. (Which will probably be our last) Jared brought me home 3 gerber daisies (since I don’t like roses), for our 3 years. He picked out the colors, and of course they were beautiful!! Then we had dinner at Bella Milano’s. It was delicous! Since we were in Edwardsville, he took me to get Starbucks. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Starbucks! I would have loved to get my iced caramel macchiato with caffeine, but I got it decaf. I shouldn’t complain, because it is wonderful treat, compared to all the water I drink. 🙂 We then went home and watched the Cardinal game together, which is a pretty typical thing. But, we had a very nice date together. Love you, Jared!

I wonder…


I wonder…

Why I always empty my shampoo bottle before my conditioner…maybe Jared uses it, even though he has his own…:)

Why Baseball players smack each other’s butts when they have a big win…that is just odd to me, oh well.

Why banana taste so much better in a bowl of cereal, yum!

If my baby knows when I am trying to sleep, and then decides to kick the crap out of my insides. 🙂

Why folding laundry is the WORST chore to do.

If my back and hips will ever feel like they use to.

If Domino will be as jealous of the baby as I think he will be. (I really feel sorry for him, since he is my first baby)

If I will ever feel like I am ready for this baby to be here. (Although I am super excited!)

Ready…or not?


This week I will be 36 weeks pregnant! Holy cow! That means in 4 weeks our baby will be here. Some times I feel like I have been pregnant forever, and other times I feel like we just found out. Some days I am soooo ready. When I think about seeing who the baby will look like, and holding the baby I get so excited. 🙂 Not to mention, I will get rid of this back pain, which has been the worst part of this last trimester.   Then sometimes I think we are NOT ready. First of all, I feel a very special connection to this baby. I will miss being pregnant and feeling the baby move and see my tummy getting bigger. Not to mention the extremely scary part, that we will  be responsible for another human being. WOW! No pressure or anything, right? So, ready or not Danielle and Jared, you are going to be parents! Good luck. 🙂
