DR. APPT - 28 weeks

Yesterday I saw my midwife. Everything looks and sounds good. I am still feeling very good. This time around seems to be much easier than my pregnancy with Paige. Her pregnancy felt easy for me, but when I compare now, this one is definitely easier on my body. I can only hope that the delivery will also be easier:) I have officially hit the 30 pound weight gain mark - YIKES! That is the total amount that I gained with Paige. Not a whole lot I can do about that right now just a little extra work afterwards.
I will get a new picture posted soon, I see that it has been 7 weeks.

These are not some of the greatest pictures of Paige's super cute friends. Believe me they are all much cuter in person, just hard to get all smiles and eyes on the camera!


Paige got a big girl bed for Christmas. I found this bed at a garage sale last summer and Jed painted so nicely for Paige.

She has done so good with it. Her first week she fell out a couple of times. One night she woke up crying, I went in to see what she needed. She was laying at the foot of her bed saying, "where my pippow (pillow) go?"

At naptime she even lets her little friends share her new space.

Paige is now in the habit of waking up in the middle of the night and wanting to come to "Daddy's bed". She doesn't get out of her own bed just cries for her "Daddy's bed."

Sorry it has been so long.
I do have some pictures to post, however I am missing my camera cord. If I do not locate it today. I will at least get you some updates and cute stories.


Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.Pooped on.Chewed on.Peed on.I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom, I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.Or give shots.I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom,I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom..
Before I was a Mom,I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body.I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache, the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom..I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom

I had an appointment today with Laura (my midwife). Everything is going well. I have gained a total of 20 pounds. I gained a total of 30 with Paige and lost 45 (thanks to breastfeeding and Curves). I am measuring a few weeks ahead, but that is not a big deal - probably just another 9 pounder. I had a glucose test today so I did not get to eat until 10am. I felt like I was about to fall over. I now start going every 2 weeks to the dr. I almost started to cry when she told me to come back in 2 weeks. This has gone too fast -- yet I am so anxious to meet our new little baby. Paige felt the baby kick for the first time. As soon as she felt it she goes "oh wow" "again baby"
