Another day, another blog

A BIG BIG Happy Birthday to Marshall on the 7th. He turned 25, a quarter of a century old! Crazy how quickly time goes!


Here is hopefully one of the final belly pics from today, 39 weeks 4 days. If you are wondering if my back hurts, the answer is yes......




I worked my last two shifts this last weekend and all of the nurses were trying to get me to go into labor. No such luck, I'm still here and as pregnant as ever! Thanks for trying though Tara, Melody & Janalee :)
I had a dr.'s appt today and nothing has changed. I'm beginning to feel a little depressed to say the least. Dr. Barton wasn't sure the baby was head down so I had a quick ultrasound today and he is head down. I guess that was the perk of the day. Saw his cute little head & button nose. On the downside, my weight is up 7 lbs from last week, (weighing in at 179) gotta love that. I guess the holidays just took an extra week to catch up with me. Dr. Barton said even if I was able to be induced, I wouldn't be favorable enough at this point. I scheduled a c-section for next Thursday, the 17th, if he's not here by then. I have an appointment next Wednesday too. I really don't mind having another c-section if it weren't for the fact that it is decided how many kids we will have by having a repeat c-section. After 4 sections, your chances of rupturing go up something like 80% and after 5, they really encourage you to be done. I'm not saying I want 12 kids, I just hate knowing Marshall & I won't get to make the decision on when our family is complete. Anyways, enough whining, I will meet this little guy within the next week! Any prayers offered on my behalf to go into labor on my own would be much appreciated :):) Marshall's mom made a yummy chocolate cake for his birthday and sent half of it home with us. I think I'm going to go eat myself into a sugar induced coma as Jeralee would say and then go to the store for more sugar.

I have been checking your blog daily to see if you have gone into labor, I am sorry to hear that you havn't. The last few weeks seem to be the worst and the slowest. Youa re definetly in our prayers. You could always just dehydrate yourself and start contractions that way, but I am not sure that is so smart. Go find a trampoline. (but if you do that you might need to wear a diaper or empty your bladder :))

I'm so sorry! Waiting is the worst. I'm sure he'll come in his own due time, all 11 pounds of him! ;-) GOOD LUCK!

Happy Belated Birthday Marshall! 25, seems like a long time ago. he he.

Tiff, you are all baby. Your butt is still so tiny for being 9 months pregnant! And 179 is still a lot better than 223 ;-)
Well, worst case scenario, at least you know that he will be here by the 17th, even though it feels a long way off.

You weigh more than me... but not by much... he he. It will be over, done, and the history books before you know it. Hang in there.

Man 2 days to go! I would be dying! Luckily with Logan he was big so they induced me because of his size thank goodness. Maybe that will happen with this one. I tried acupuncture to get him to come early and it didn't work, maybe it would with you?

Hang in there Tiff.. Jason you are just pure mean!

Aurelia said...
