Update

Thought I should post an update from my appointment on Wednesday. (I switched it from Tuesday because I went to a La Leche League meeting... I love them!) So anyways, my appointment went well. First the nurse tried to tell me I was 30 pounds heavier than I am- ouch! Thank goodness I argued with her about it!!
My BP was good (it's always low), only gained 1 pound, appt. was good. Baby is definitely head down and very head down. Heart beat was in the 130s. I still measure small but am certainly getting bigger!! And I am still only 1 cm dilated.
My midwife did give a few suggestions for helping things progress... and we talked about induction just in case. So if he's not here by Oct. 12 we will do something about it then.
Otherwise, 6 days till the due date, which is making me very anxious!!

Speaking of babies, found out my brother and my new sister in law are expecting!! Cool, Owen will have a same-age cousin!!

I went out for lunch today with my best friend Pam and her mom, too. It was so nice! So nice to see her... we don't get to see each other much at all anymore. And the food was good too! Pam gave me some really sweet baby clothes and a cute cow rattle, and her mom made the baby a really sweet fleece blanket! It is great!!

Kids are doing well... school is going great, they are getting back into the swing of things. I love all of their teachers and am very hopeful that they will each have a great year!
Samantha is being challenged with the work this year, which is a bit of an adjustment for her but I know she will come through on top as always! She joined Builder's Club (Kiwanis for younger people) and ran for secretary...she finds out today if she got it. I'm thinking she has a good chance because she said she was only running against the chalkboard!!
Will has a great teacher too, a guy which I think is really good for him. And he actually WANTS to do his homework this year, which is such a nice change! He's so smart, and I think he's realizing that it's not as hard as he always thought it was.
Colby has been having some issues on the playground... been dealing with bullies. Ugh. I was thankful to hear Colby say that he is "protecting the girls". So cute!! I've already talked with other parents, and the principal, so hopefully it will stop.

I just have to say this: 3 months till Christmas! And here my plan was to have all my shopping done before the baby was born. I think I've bought maybe 5 things. Fa la la!!

Happy Happy Friday!

Ahhh! I can't believe it is now less than 3 months to Christmas.

I hope Owen pops out before October 12 for you.

How cute of Colby to protect the girls.
