Nope not a mom of three yet. She is still in me. I thought a couple times that she might come but still nothing. Worse news is that she is now breech, meaning her head is up and her feet are down. Because of her size and such they want to do a C section. I am scheduled to go into the hospital tomorrow at 6 am. I have been hoping and praying that she turns but either way I will have a sweet baby in my arms by tomorrow morning.

(I am really trying not to be disappointed about not having an all natural birth. I have been hoping to go into labor naturally before Friday which was my original induction date.)

And Yet Another Prego Update

Yes, I am still pregnant. So I got to go to my sister's wedding. It was a beautiful experience and I am so happy that I got to witness it. That night at the wedding dinner I started having mild contractions. We went home and went to sleep. I woke up around 2:00 am with mild, steady contractions that were 3 minutes apart. I went for a walk with Talmage and then we went to the hospital. Walked some more and then checked in. My sister and brother were at home watching the Heber and Hannah
My contractions where long enough but grew farther apart and less consistent, 4 to 7 minutes apart. . They didn't grow stronger. They sent us home. That was good because I was getting so tired and really wanted to go to sleep
I had a couple strong contractions after getting home. I had mild contractions all day long about 7 to 15 minutes apart. After sitting around all day I was getting so mentally exhausted from just waiting and doing nothing. I decided to go to my sister's reception. While there, I swing danced, walked, skipped, hopped around the church building and climbed a small hill or two.
On the way home, I had a few strong contractions and was hopeful that I would be having the baby that night.
When I woke up the next morning I felt so good and rested. I had no contractions. Decided to go to church. After church we went and visited a couple of different friends in our neighborhood. Talmage rubbed my feet in the pressure point spots that induce labor. I had some contractions but then nothing.
I was so mentally exhausted from so much anticipation. I am so anxious to have my little girl and can't wait to see her.
This morning we went to the doctors office and they stripped my membranes. (Talmage and I both hate how that sounds). I've had cramps, but no contractions. Now I am just cleaning and waiting but feel calm and hopeful, not as antsy as I was feeling yesterday and the day before.

Another Prego Update

So, it is about three o'clock in the morning and I can't sleep. Maybe it is my body practicing for the sleepless nights to come. This happened two nights ago. I was up from 2 until 6.
Anyways, now you get to hear all about my day. I went to the doctors and had an ultrasound. This little girl is BIG. She is about eight and a half pounds. I also have a lot of fluid in me. The huge belly is making more sense. The best news of all is that she is head down!!! Yay!
I have been thinking to Olive trying to tell her to turn. I have also been praying to Heavenly Father that she would turn. I had a similar experience with Hannah and both times a miracle has occurred. I am so thankful.
If I don't go into labor this weekend or sometime early next week they want to induce me because of her size and also because so much amniotic fluid might cause the umbilical cord to come out before the baby if my water breaks unexpectedly. The baby pressing up against the umbilical cord could cut of blood circulation. Then she went on to explain what to do in that situation.
Talmage has Air Force this weekend and we were planning on me going with him but we just found out that he is sharing a room and I will not be able to come. It would have been nice because I would have been on base and he could be there at a moment's notice. We still haven't come up with a solid plan B yet. I feel a little anxious about all of this but I'm sure we'll figure out something.
Also, my sister is getting married this weekend. Part of the reason they are waiting to induce me. The wedding is tomorrow and the reception is Saturday. I spent all of today decorating for the reception. "You might as well do something while you're doing nothing." ~ Uncle Rico
I thought I would be exhausted, I was for awhile until I woke up around one thirty.

Prego Update

Still no baby. Amanda, my sister, is getting married this weekend. Talmage also has Air Force this weekend. So if I can hold out until Monday... either way I am going to have a baby sometime in the near future. How near though?
Ultrasound tomorrow, we'll see if she is transverse or not.
I'll be 39 weeks Friday. The twins came so quickly. It is nice to really be waiting and anticipating longer for this little one.
