Notes: I stopped taking the baby Aspirin by week 30. I did keep on taking it ever other day for a few more weeks to slowly stop it as the doctor had suggested. Jan. 6th did my 1 hour glucose test and I passed my with a 103. For Christmas Wesley got me new Lazy Boy chair to sleep in. I wished I could sleep in the bed but I hate being in pain. I had started to gain some water weight and my feet get swallon by the end of the day. I got ted hose to help we with my feet and legs at this point.

Jan. 30th Payson baby shower


It was really nice of Tiffany, Nicole, Rachelle, Amanda, and Roberta in throwing a great shower. I asked for a book shower because I wanted to get as many books as we can so we can read to Samuel. I received a lot of great books. Tiffany found books that went with the foods. It was a really cute idea. It was really sweet of everyone who came even though it was practically a blizzard outside.
 



Feb. 6th NST test (photos)


At work they were learning how to do a Non-Stress Test (NST) and I was the only one in the office that was pregnant that they could practice on. I sat there for an hour just listening to Samuel's heart beat. It was really cool but glad I didn't HAVE to do it once a week, or even every other day like some of the patients with complications. 


Feb. 15th Salt Lake Baby Shower


I had a great baby shower in Salt Lake. Big thank you to my Mom, Megan, Laura, Jenny, Brittany, and Tega for putting together a fun shower. This shower was a diaper shower and it turned out pretty good. When someone brought a pack of diapers they put a ticket in a drawing and my sister gave them prizes. I received a lot of diapers, actually we didn't have to buy diapers until Samuel was in size 2 diapers. It was a really good idea. Thank you every one who came and supported us. 





Feb. 20th Dr Harward 33 weeks 6 days


Moms Blood Pressure: 110/64
Moms Weight: 218 lb
Baby Heart Beat: 150
MEDs: Calcium 750mg, Folic Acid w/ DHA, Allergy Relief, Provida (prenatal vitamin), Docusate (Colace) 2 a day, and Prevacid 1 in the morning.
Notes: I got an other cold and with this one I lost my voice and had to take off work. The doctor gave me an antibiotic for it, I took the first dose and started to have itchy hand and arms. I needed a second dose because I wasn't getting better. The itching was driving me crazy, I was afraid something serious was wrong because there is condition pregnant women can get that causes itchy feet and hands. We did blood work and I did NOT have that condition thankfully. I stopped the antibiotic and the itching stopped a few days after. We think I started to itch because while pregnant there isn't great blood flow and so the antibiotic wasn't able to move around like normal. At this point I was pretty swollen and had edema pretty bad.

Feb. 23rd 40 days to go Wesley birthday 28.


I thought it was really cool that on Wesley's birthday I only had 40 more days to go. Just another cool fact. 

Feb. 25th 34 week (ultrasound) 




March 1st Abby Birthday 29

For my birthday I wanted to go and get my nails done, so Rachelle said she would go with me. It was a lot of fun to be pampered for a few hours. Then after getting our nails done we went to dinner to Olive Garden. It was a relaxing quiet birthday. 

March 3rd Dr Harward 35 weeks 3 days


Moms Blood Pressure: 104/68
Moms Weight: 221 lb
Baby Heart Beat: 150
MEDs: Calcium 750mg, Folic Acid w/ DHA, Allergy Relief, Provida (prenatal vitamin), Docusate (Colace) 2 a day, and Prevacid 1 in the morning.
Notes: At this appointment I found out that I had Strep B. This meant when I go into Labor I would need to have antibiotic so I don't pass it to Samuel. I also had ultrasounds done on my legs and groin because I was having a lot more pain and the doctors wanted to make sure it wasn't blood clots. All the Ultrasounds looked good. Also did ultrasound on my ribs to see if my gallbladder and liver was working okay because I was still having rib pain.


Thank you to Kim for taking the photos for us.

March 4th Work Baby shower

It was really nice of my coworker for throwing me a baby shower. We had a lot of fun. LeeAnn had put together a matching game, it was a lot of fun. I had great coworkers and a great time there. I miss them a lot.

Notes: Everything is looking really good. I was hoping that the doctor would check me but told me that he would check me in 2 weeks. I was just hoping that I was making some progression. The doctor did tell me to go for lots of walks to see if it will help the baby drop. 

March 17th (37 weeks 3 days) Wesley's job offer…
Wesley received a job offer in Texas!  He was offered a position as a Computer Forensic Consultant with AccessData.  We had to talk and pray about it a lot, but in the end it was such a great opportunity for our family that we couldn't pass it up!

March 22nd (Dancing)

This Saturday Gracie and Peyton wanted to dance and I told them that they need to dance to the song "Cupid Shuffle" so I had to get up and show them how to do the dance. This is how a 9 month pregnant woman shows kids how to dance. The shadow pictures is me trying to show you how big I looking in my shadow while Wesley was helping Gracie ride a bike.

March 24th (38 weeks 3 days)

Moms Blood Pressure: 100/66
Moms Weight: 230 lb
Baby Heart Beat: 150
MEDs: Calcium 750mg, Folic Acid w/ DHA, Allergy Relief, Provida (prenatal vitamin), Docusate (Colace) 2 a day, and Prevacid 1 in the morning.
Notes: The doctor did check me but my cervic was closed and still really high. It made me super bummed because I wanted to make sure I had the baby before Wesley left for Texas for his new job. I tried to talk the doctor in to inducing me early but he couldn't and with everything looking good with the baby and me he couldn't induce me early. He could induce me on April 14th if I hadn't had him yet.

March 25th 

I had to share this photo because it is one of the last photos that was taken of me before he was born, and they weren't taking a picture of me they were taking a picture of the kids. Wesley was signing all the paper work for his new job. I know I look huge. Oh well it was worth it.

March 30th

I had to share how fat my feet looked right before I go to bed, and this is me sitting in my lazy boy chair getting ready to go to bed.


March 31st (39 weeks 3 days) MONDAY

Moms Blood Pressure: 122/80
Moms Weight: 229 lb
Baby Heart Beat: 150
MEDs: Calcium 750mg, Folic Acid w/ DHA, Allergy Relief, Provida (prenatal vitamin), Docusate (Colace) 2 a day, and Prevacid 1 in the morning.
Notes: The doctor checked me and I was still closed and hadn't dropped at all. So we talked about what we should do to have this baby. We weren't too worried, but Wesley was leaving for Texas on April 10th and my doctor was going to be out of town next week. We decided with the doctor that our best option is to plan on doing C-section on Wednesday.  The doctor suggested this because of how my cervix was sitting and especially due to family history in this situation. 

This photos is for the last night before we had Samuel. While I was reading to Peyton I was having some pains but didn't think anything of it. 
 

Tuesday April 1st Samuel's Birthday...
