39 weeks..almost there!

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along: 39 weeks.. only 6 more days!
Size of baby: Baby H iss still around 7 lbs. and 19- 20 inches long.. can't believe it! I wonder how big she really is??
Dr. Lassister thinks she is about 7 guess is 6 lb. 11 oz and Jamie's is 6 lb. 9 oz.. we'll see. We were both small babies. I was 6 lb. 6 oz. and Jamie was 6 lb. 9 oz so I'm interested to see what she will be!

Total weight gain/loss: I have gained 21 lbs.. we are down to one more doctor visit.  woo hoo!

Maternity clothes: I am ready for my clothes to fit again!  I know its gonna take a while but I sure am ready!
Gender: You are a GIRL!! BURKLEIGH ANN

Movement: She is still head down so that is a good thing.  She is still moving around but not as much as she was.. I think she's almost ready! Yeah!

Sleep: Ugh.. its getting really uncomfortable.. but it's okay.. i'm taking naps most every day the heat is almost unbearable! Wouldn't you know it be record breaking heat the first part of the summer when I am prego.
Cravings: sweets, ice cream, slushes, fruit and anything cold!

What I miss: Maybe bending over..

Symptoms: Same.. backpain some, mostly heartburn and leg cramps at night.. ouch! Those things hurt like crazy!!

Best moment this week: My doctor visit was about the same.  I hadn't dilated anymore so I am still about 1 1/2 and 80% which means she could come at any time.  She didn't feel right about inducing next week.. she wants me to go to my due date and see if she will come on her own.  My due date is Saturday, the 18th.  If she hasn't come on her own by that Tuesday, the 21st we will induce.  So.. it's just a matter of days now!! We are so ready to meet this little one and can't wait to see what she looks like.  Mommy and Daddy are ready for you baby girl.. I hope you make your debut this week!!

These cute little pacis came in the mail this week. I thought they were cute!  I wonder if  she will be a paci girl.. if she is anything like me and her cousins she will be a thumb sucker.  She was sucking her thumb in one of my ultrasound pics so we probably won't need these but who knows!

Almost 38 weeks... and thank you Pampers!

Pregnancy Highlights
How far along:  Almost 38weeks.. not much longer!
Size of baby: Baby H is close to 7 lbs. and 20  inches long.. can't believe it!  I wonder how big she really is?? I'm thinking she is around 6 lbs..who knows?
Total weight gain/loss: I have gained 21 lbs.. going to the dr. every week now.
Maternity clothes: I am still really enjoying wearing dresses and skirts. Those seem to be the most comfortable right now! It is really hot too so the pool has been nice!
Gender: You are a GIRL!! BURKLEIGH ANN
Movement: She is a kicker for sure! Sometimes it takes my breath away.  I think she is running out of room in there.. I don't feel her as much as I used to but she is definitely moving around and is in position.. head down!
Sleep: Ugh.. its getting really uncomfortable.. but it's okay.. i'm taking naps most every day!  I'm exhausted!
Cravings: sweets, ice cream, slushes and anything cold!
What I miss: Maybe bending over..
Symptoms: Same.. backpain some, mostly heartburn and leg cramps at night.. ouch! Those things hurt like crazy!!
Best moment this week:  My doctor visit was today. I am 1 1/2 cm. dilated and 80% effaced.  Yeah! I am progressing from last week.  Last week I was only 1 cm. dilated.  I'm hoping that means she will decide to make her debut sooner rather than later!  It could be any day now.  Mom came over and helped me sort through clothes, wash, iron and put away.  I am getting our bags packed and trying to get a few last minute things.  We are getting anxious!  We went and bought a video camera this week so I think we're set!  =)

And.. thank you Pampers!! I was shopping at Target today and this is what I found.  I was so excited!!
  I had just told my mom the other day I wish Pampers would make diapers that were cute and didn't have all the characters on them and then today, I see these!  Of course I had to buy them.  They said limited edition so who knows how long they will be around but they sure are cute and yes, they had some for boys too.  So, go get yours!
There are 2 different patterns..
Aren't they cute?  I sure hope they stay around for a while! 

Fun with the kiddos..

My brother, sis n law, and all the kiddos got to come down for a short visit last week.. it's just never long enough.  It had been March since I had seen them last and they have all grown up so much, especially Carter man.  We had fun hanging at the pool, getting ice cream, shopping, and going down to the lake.  Wish they could have stayed a lot longer but they had to get back to school.  The kids still had another week left.  They are hoping to come back in July to meet Burkleigh Ann and I can't wait for that!  Hannah Rose was so sweet talking to my belly and asking when she could see Burkleigh.  =)  She asked if they were going to be twins.  So sweet! I just love that sweet child and know they are going to be the best of friends.
We had fun making S'mores at the lake
This little man had cupcake all over him!

Hannah Rose and daddy
My 3 cutie pies!

Fun on the swing
Just chillin..


Love this sweet picture!

And..we can't forget the 2 gimps!  Ha! Heather fell down the steps and had to go to the emergency room.. she fractured her foot and had to wear this boot all weekend.  Then, the next day Jamie twists his ankle and we thought he broke it.  Turned out it was a bad sprain but it was black and blue and purple about huge!  It was definitly a weekend to remember! 

Class of 2011..

Wow! I can't believe school has been out for a week already and it is already miserably hot!! Don't know how much of this record breaking heat I can take!  It's gonna be a hot summer for sure.  Thankfully, I just have a few more weeks of it.  

Last week my precious neice graduated from Pelham high school!  We are all so proud of her and her accomplishments and can't wait to see what the future has in store for her.  She is such a sweet, smart, pretty, fun-loving girl and I know she has great things ahead of her.  We love you Haley Ann and are so proud of all you have accomplished. 
Such a pretty girl!
