I have to first start by apologizing about not keeping this up to date like I said I would.
I send the texts, post on Facebook, and forget to update the blog.

As you can imagine, Adam is still cooking despite his attempts to make an early appearance.

Yesterdays appointments were interesting. But let me back up.

Let's just say it has been a week and leave it at that. 
Adam is still doing great and getting bigger. They moved measurements to next week so it will be closer to the delivery on the 8th. 

We were monitored on thursday for most of the day with (again) a possible outlook of delivery since the contractions were so close and erratic. However they got slammed with patients and since my contractions don't make me dilate they sent me home with restrictions and to be uncomfortable there instead. 

So I'm still here with consistent contractions, pain and the urge to throw up. As long as I keep up on the meds things are a little better. 
I'm good with him coming any other day but today so I won't be doing anything but laying on the couch. 

Happy Halloween!

This last week it was Harvest Break in Idaho. That meant Ethan was out of school for the entire week and got to spend it down here with James and me.

Luckily I was feeling really good this week so we were able to do a couple things throughout the week.

On Tuesday I took him to the barns that my sisters friend keeps her horses so he could finally ride one.  He had a great time and talked all the way home about how much fun it was.

34 weeks and still counting

Appointments went great yesterday.

NST showed a great heart beat and consistent contractions.

Ultrasounds showed the C-Pam still measuring the same as before, which is still good news and no hydrops anywhere.  It also showed how big Adam (yup, we decided on a name) is getting. Right now he is measuring between 35w2d and 38w (Yes the 38w is his head size). His average measurements showed him at 36 weeks. His estimated weight is 6lbs 8oz with a 1 lb variance.

Needless to say he is growing and is healthy.

We have now passed the pediatric surgeons goal of 5lbs and only have a few more days to hit their goal of 35 weeks.
As for me, same ol' same ol'. Watch contractions and take it easy.

Thank you again to all those who keep us in your prayers. We have been so blessed.
