Its go time. Looks like Baby M's birthdate will be March 24th. My water broke last night at about 930pm, we got to the hospital about 11pm and they confirmed it. Its now 1:04am. They are going to let me go all night until Dr K does her rounds, if I haven't progressed on my own, they will induce (gag!). I also recently discovered my netbook has a webcam. This oughta be fun!

Bubbles in the Park

Yesterday, even though Lily was still sick, we decided to get some fresh air and go to the park. She had her temp taken at my doctors appointment and it was back down to normal, and it was sunny and in the mid 50's. She really wanted to play with her bubbles. The bubbles were her Potty Training reward. The first day we took her to school with no pull up or diapers, I promised her a toy if she didn't have any accidents all day. That was the beginning of her potty training and she's been pretty much fully potty trained since then. Almost 2 fulls weeks, including naptime and night time.

This is Lily in the living room after we steam cleaned the carpet. All the furniture is at the other end of the room, but she couldn't wait to watch Sesame Street.

B and B

Means Basketball and Brackets. The only other sporting event I can sit on my tush for days and watch besides the Olympics is March Madness. And I didn't even go to a NCAA Div 1 school. But like the rest of the nation, I get sucked in. It helps that they set up big screens at work and give us free popcorn and soda. It also helped that I once went on vacation to Las Vegas during March Madness. Talk about MADNESS.

It's 66 degrees and sunny here today. Fabulous spring weather. And I'm at work. I took Tues and Wed off to finish "nesting" but Lily got sick at the same time and couldn't go to school with 102 fever. So we modified our nesting a bit and did some other stuff that still needed to be done. Laundry, baby clothes folding, steam cleaning the living room carpet, paid off my car, returned some items to BRU, doctors appointments (one for me, one for her). Tomorrow its going to be a bit cooler, then Saturday??? I don't think our weather people have any idea what is going to happen. One minute they say rain with a possible snow mix. The next they are saying a lot of accumulation. Whatever. All I know is that I can sit on my tush, watch some b-ball and no one can complain. If it was nice outside I'd feel obligated to take Lily to the park again. Or go to the Zoo. I've got more than one "party" to go to this weekend, and I don't think I can handle going to more than one. So I have to decide. And that's only if James doesn't have a lot of b-ball videos to edit. We shall see.

Update from Doctor: No update! She saw my sonogram results. Said "behave this weekend, I'm going to be out of town". No change in due date, no cervix thinning, not concerned with baby's size. All is good. Which is great, I don't really want this baby coming before April. I've got a very tight maternity leave schedule without a lot of wiggle room.

How Far Along? I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow.
Labor Signs? Not really
Sleep? None last night. Heartburn so bad I was praying for baby to come sooner rather than later, but DR said I could take Zantac so hopefully that helps.
Best moment this week? Last Sonogram! Saw baby, looks just like Lily. Baby weighs about 6lbs 70z already. More than Lily's birth weight of 6lbs 4.5oz.
Cravings? None really. The heartburn is too bad to care what I eat.
What I miss? sleeping on my tummy
What I am looking forward to? 8 weeks off work and a beach vacation in May
Milestones? Last Sonogram!

Skating with Clifford!

Saturday was KCPT's fundraiser at Crown Center Ice Terrace: Skating with Clifford! Crocodile Tears, she really wasn't enjoying it!

Went limp and Daddy had to push her around the rink.

But then she got to give Clifford a kiss and all was well:


How Far Along? 34 weeks 3 days
Labor Signs? Same old braxton hicks, like clockwork, every night starting at 6pm. Also had some kind of allergic reaction last week, and had a virus that caused a nasty fever blister. The fever blister thing happened with my 1st pregnancy too
Sleep? Getting better, Lily's room is being repainted so she has been sleeping with me, and Daddy sleeps upstairs in the guest room, will be glad when he can come back to bed with me, I don't sleep well when he isn't there
Best moment this week? Got tax return filed, getting a refund, something that hasn't happened in like 5 years
Cravings? Food, just food in general, I lost a pound last week, so I must be trying to catch up
What I miss? Warm Weather
What I am looking forward to? warm weather (see a pattern)
Milestones? pre-registered at hospital
