34 Weeks!!!!!

Well, we have officially made it to 34 weeks! With everything that has been going on, this is a great relief. We went to the hospital on Monday for our weekly visit there. They monitor me and Callie and continuously check my blood pressure. I am doing pretty well thanks to the bed rest that I HATE! Sean continues to remind me of what I am allowed to do and makes me stay in my spot on the couch.

Now they just want me to not only be on bed rest, but laying down at all times. It seams to make a big difference in my blood pressure, which is good for little Miss Callie so she can stay in there longer. I am getting really excited and can't wait to see her and hold her.

My parents will be home in 7 days!!!! I can't wait. It looks like my parents will be home before she gets here, lets just not jinx it! We are excited to move forward and I am ready to get off bed rest. Sean is going to need a vacation after this is all I know!

Maternity Pictures

Sean and I got our pictures taken a few weeks ago. I was 31 weeks, almost 32, and the day before I went on bed rest! So lucky we got them done. I was really swollen and wasn't thrilled about that, but glad we did them anyways. I will just have pictures now to remind Callie what I went through before she was here! We are so excited!
My aunt, cousins, and their babies came in town to visit us this week and helped us get ready for Callie since she might come a little early. It was a blast and so glad they came. My aunt can always get more done in 1 1/2 days than I could in a week! With my mom being gone I needed her help desperately. She just takes over and makes the decisions for me.......We are completely organized, sterilized, stocked up, and ready for Callie to be here. Thank you girls!

Bed Rest.......

So, I am officially stuck on bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy. I just thought I would make things more interesting for Sean. Now he can clean the inside of the house, take care of the yard, the dogs, and most importantly, ME. I have been having some problems with my blood pressure and swelling. I am doing fine and am learning how boring sitting around all day can get. I went to the specialist and they looked at Callie. She is GREAT! She is just where she is supposed to be size wise and has not been affected by me. She is a little trooper. We just need her to stay in there for a few more weeks.

The worst part about this whole thing is I don't get to go to Dallas for my shower or my friends shower, which I was looking forward to. I don't get to go to my other shower in Austin either, but I guess it's better to stay at home and make sure that Callie is ok. We are excited for her to be here, but want her to wait a little longer. Thank you to everyone who has called or gone out of their way to be there for us. We appreciate it more than you can imagine! Thanks for everything and we can't wait to share our little girl with the world.

Sean cooked on Sunday for an early birthday and everyone came over. It was fun! So glad we got to see everyone! Thanks to my girls for my gifts. You all know what I need! Congratulations to some of my other girls! I think there were more pregnant girls here than non pregnant people. I love having friends going through the same thing. And, precious Peyton came over with my favorite new mom.... We have a baby shower this weekend that Sean's moms friends are having for me. It should be fun. I can't wait. And we don't know how to thank everyone enough for everything they do for us.
