Another update

Just to fill you in. I went to the doctor earlier this week. She said things look good. She said my weight gain was perfect (19lbs!), my blood pressure was good, my tummy measured good, and Daisy's heart sounded good. So, she said she thinks I am doing great and she has no concerns at this point. Now my doctor's visits are two weeks apart! I can't believe we are getting that close. Oh, and I heard from Chris last night. He is doing well. Steven has been spending the week with me, he is the greatest brother ever. He has been grilling at night, taking the boys to the park (and to get ice cream), and today he cleaned my house! How wonderful is he! Here is a picture of my cute brother and me from last summer in Hawaii! Love ya Steve.

The start of my 3rd Trimester!

Can you believe it! I am starting to feel the effects of the third trimester already, just two days into it! (if you must know, we can talk about it later) I have a feeling it is going to be a long 12 weeks! (when you say it that way I can hardly believe it, Daisy will be here in 12, or less weeks!) Here are some recent pictures of me and some pictures of Daisy's bedding in her crib. It is all coming together!

Last night Amanda had a group of girls over to eat some yummy pizza. I just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed getting to see my friends. I miss getting together. I know life gets busy, but it is always fun to hang out and see eachother. (and yes I pulled into my driveway as the rain began to pour down, I managed to make it home without a freakout). Thanks girls for such a fun night. So glad Daisy was able to show off for you!

Randomly, Chris reminded me that we have not devoted any space on our blog page for our boys. Thus I am going to post some recent photos. I love our boys and hope that the new addition to our family is a smooth transition for them.
Also, I never posted a congratulations picture of Dr. Brian Firestone! What an accomplishment! Here is a picture of me and chris and the dr and his wife Jess!

Well, I am now 27weeks and I am sorry I have not posted pictures for so long. Here we go:

Last Friday our crib was delivered undamaged! So Chris and I put it together! We LOVE IT! What do you think?

Last Thursday we picked up our dresser from Galleria furniture here in OKC. The dresser is very big, it hardly fit in my Trailblazer! I couldn't see out of any of my windows or my review mirror, so I drove in the right hand lane the whole way home to avoid any blind spots! It was an experience. We are so excited about this dresser. The gray in the front is actually frosted glass and it goes really well with the crib. Inside those two doors are two shelves, which I think will work nicely for changing table necessities!

This is our bedding! We ordered it online. (We left in in the bag because we wanted to make sure we liked it and I wasn't sure I could get it to go back in the right way). We were going to try and register for it, but I think it is only available online, so I think it is going to come out of the bag soon!!! WE are so excited about this bedding. The bumper is to the right, it is polka dot on one side and light pink fuzzy on the other with hot pink trim. The bed skirt is to the left it is striped with a hot pink horizontal stripe at the bottom. I love how everything is coming together.

This is a picture of the decoration things I have collected to date. No, I haven't been buying it all, let me explain. The hat boxes came from Danielle's wedding, the hot pink daisies in vases from Danielle's shower, the zebra pillows I already had, the rocking horse was made for me last year from one of my arthritis participants (before I was pregnant, it was a joke in reference to an exercise we do called rocking horse, but I love it! I just changed the color of it's collar) The daisies with the green dots and the daisy container was given to us from the Goff's. As you can see I am going with hot pink, light pink, black and white. I wasn't going to do daisies necessarily, but a few daisy accents are okay. Now I am in search of a cute lamp/chandelier, curtains/or a valence, we have ordered a chair for the room, and then we will see what else after that!

Finally, here are the pictures of me. I did not weigh myself this week but as of last week I had gained 16.5lbs! I know those of you who haven't seen me in a while are saying, SHE IS HUGE! However, I believe that I might need to post a blog on appropriate and inappropriate things to say to a pregnant woman. At first they are funny to hear, but as you progress, you really don't want to hear that you look a lot further along than you are, or be questioned as to if your doctor is concerned about how much weight you have gained. Yesterday, in fact a lady I work with was in the hall with her husband. I said hello to them and went on my way. The therapist came to find me later and said that her husband questioned her and said, 'I thought you told me that girl was pregnant", she is, "well she doesn't look like it, she looks great!" I told the therapist to get her husband on the phone and back up here so I could hug him! Anyway, sorry for getting off subject. It must be the hormones.
I hope all is well with everyone. In other news, if anyone would like to see pictures of Daisy's boyfriend you can find them at I hope it isn't this long before I post again! Love you all.

I really have meant to get pictures up here. Things are getting so busy, and I am starting to get tired again. (Today I found out that I am anemic, so that might have something to do with it). Please pray that I can take the iron supplement without having too many tummy problems. Love you all, I will update soon. (we got our crib and our bedding, I have taken pictures I just need to upload them)

Quick update

Pictures to come soon, I promise. It has been a hectic week. Just a quick update. I went to the doctor this week, everything looks good. Actually she measured my tummy and said it was just perfect. So for all of you out there who have been making comments about how big I look, I am JUST PERFECT! The weight gain was a little bit better this time putting me at +16.5lbs total. Next week I have my glucose test--yuck, and my appointments start getting more frequent! I am getting so excited.

Daisy is really moving now. This weekend and this week I have been mesmorized by my tummy. I love watching it move around! It is so amazing to me that it is Chris and I's baby inside of me! What a miracle!

I went to visit Dara and Evan this week. They are doing so well. Their house (dara and ryan's) is beautful, but their baby trumps it all. He is starting to smile and is so friendly. It is always good to catch up with Dara.

We bought at dresser/changing table! I LOVE IT! It is black. I will post a picture when I can. We just brought it home today and put it in daisy's room. It is HUGE. It is an adult sized double dresser (like chris and I have in our bedroom). My plan is to purchase a really cute mirror to hang on the wall above the dresser.

Our crib is still on it's way. FedEx damaged it last week and had to send it back to NYC. SO our new one is on it's way!

I have found a really great hot pink chair I want, and daisy obviously needs. It is a rocker/glider, recliner/swivel. It is so comfortable and nice. I am very excited about this. Chris thinks it is really cute, but he was hesitant because he was worried, what if our ultrasound was wrong and we have a boy, what will we do with a pink chair? So we asked the PA, who did our ultrasound, at the doctor's office this week, how sure we could be that we were having a girl. She said that she isn't going to say 100% because mistakes happens but that she hasn't been wrong in 12 years so she would recommend going ahead and buying the pink chair! YEA!

I think that is all from here, Jess and Brian moved out this week and we are very sad. It was so fun having them here. I cant believe they are moving to texas!

Well, I hope all is well with everyone and I will talk to you all soon. Picutres to come!
