Take a guess

Here's the website for the online guesses. Don't just look at it - take a guess!

We don't know what it is, although some people are pretty sure they do (or they are very clear about what they want it to be).

take a guess

I thought I would post a recent belly pic so that if anyone wants to guess the baby's gender they can. This is 34 weeks 4 days. I should take a new picture because I think it's changed in the week and a half since this pic.

Here's 27 weeks for comparison. HeeheeI love it. My belly is so small in this picture!

ok, ok I'm getting ready

Early in my pregnancy I signed up for a couple week-by-week e-mail calendars. So each week I get an e-mail telling me what's going on with the baby, with me and articles about things I may be concerned about at this stage or things I should/shouldn't be doing. For the past 2 weeks or so I've been getting e-mails telling me it's time to install the car seat. As far as calendars go I'm supposed to have about a month left, although the doctor will let the baby come anytime after next Friday (it's weird to be able to say it like that... next Friday). So I'm wondering why do I need to put the car seat in so soon? Why do I need to pack for the hospital now? People will laugh at me. Actually the opposite has happened. When I tell people about these e-mails and how I think it's too soon they disagree and say actually you probably should be pack already. I still think I have a while left because it's my first and because my belly doesn't look as huge as I thought it would when I reach full term. But Jason went ahead and installed the infant carrier in my car. It looks good.
I packed the diaper bag for the baby with an outfit and onesie, diapers, wipes, vaseline (want to know what the vaseline is for? When babies are born their first couple of poops are like tar. I have personally changed these types of diapers and you need a scraper to get this stuff off. Apparently if you put vaseline on their little bottom the tar won't stick so bad and will be easier to get off. Here's hoping!) baby nail clippers and a pacifier. I guess I might get little hand covers b/c apparently babies nails are super long and they scratch themselves.
Now as for my bag... um, well, hmmm. I've thought about it. I should pack it and leave it in the car because if I go to a doctor's appointment and she sends me to the hospital I can't run home to pack my bag. I live 30 min away from the doctor and 45 min away from the hospital. So adding an extra 90 minutes of drive/pack time might not be smart. Again I think I'll be late or have to be induced, but only time will tell. So maybe I'll start packing my bag today. :P Maybe. One good thing about packing early is I can add things as I go because I know I will forget stuff.
Ok well sorry for the long, boring, pointless post. Have a good week everyone!

Oh btw - some people have asked and no, we do not know if the baby is a boy or a girl. We tried to find out and they actually told us both at different points during the ultra sound. Then they said they just couldn't tell. So the little one is keeping it a surprise until d-day. Guesses are welcome!

baby stuff

Here are some things we received for the baby. Since the baby is not here yet, the baby's bear, Stitches (made by Mommy and Daddy) is modeling the new stuff.

some baby stuff

Here's the crib all put together. It's getting kinda real now :o
I love the froggy hat :)

1st day of vacation

and I'm awake. The one thing I have been looking forward to about being off of work is being able to sleep in. Yet here I am awake at 6am. Plus I've been up for a while. Now I'm hungry so I should eat and then try to go back to sleep, but I don't feel like making anything b/c then I'll wake up even more and won't be able to fall back asleep. :P So I'm online and no one else is. I've looked at all my usual web sites and there's nothing new on them. -sigh- Oh well. Here's what else I have planned for my exciting day off: do laundry, call about lamaze class, possibly get a pedicure (I'm actually excited about that one), hmmm... I think that's about it. I wish I were going somewhere for spring break. Two other teachers at my school are leaving for Italy today. A bunch of people I know are going to Florida. I'm going to do laundry. -sigh again- Ok I'm going to get offline now before I start talking about strange pregnancy experiences that you really don't want to know about. Hope everyone has a great day!

Ok So it's bedtime but I don't want to go to bed yet. I'm in a really funky mood. I'm annoyed with something that shouldn't even bother me but it does. It's frustrating. rrrr
Pregnancy is... interesting. I knew that my belly would change and that some body stuff would change. But it's like every, even random, thing has changed on my body. I don't feel a whole lot of kicks yet, but I know the baby is moving around because I can feel and see where it is on the outside of my belly. And boy has it been exploring the past few days. It has been up to my belly button and down to my bladder and every place in between. Over on the left, over on the right... It's crazy. I guess it better enjoy the freedom while it can because in a couple of months there won't be any room left!
Ok I'm taking my crazy preggie brain to bed. Night all!
