Yesterday we had someone come to look at our house so we left and took a ride in our van. I reclined the seat, opened the window, and just told Steve to keep driving. It felt so good to be out of the house and to smell the outdoors. I can't wait to be off bedrest. I would love to go to the beach, go on a walk, anything to get outside. It will come, I won't have to lie down forever.

I'm so glad that she started saying water!! Before when she wanted water she would cry and wine until I figured out what she wanted. I felt so bad when I realied she was just thirsy.
She loves to say thank you, and says it all the time. What a polite girl.
Another thing I love to hear her say is yeah. She says it in this calm, serious way that is just adorable. Hard to describe in writing.

I don't know why I get so nervous before I go in for an appointment. I always fear she will send me to the hospital and I will be stuck there for a few weeks. For the most part, I'm not that worried about this pregnancy. Bedrest seems to be working and I have confidence that this baby will stay where he needs to til he is ready to come out. This being said, the night before and the morning of my doctor's visits I get so nervous and just imagine the worst. Well, no need to worry today. Everything went great and I really feel like I am on my way to being done with this bedrest thing. Only 7 1/2 weeks to go!! Sigh.....that still is a really long time!!
Your baby is busy getting ready for the birthday! The baby is beginning to regulate his own temperature and the bone marrow is completely in charge of production of the red blood cells. The baby is even urinating about a half liter of urine into the amniotic fluid everyday!
The movements that you feel will probably begin to change at this point. Once your baby held wild gymnastic parties, now as the space becomes cramped you notice smaller movements, such as elbows and knees. Try monitoring the baby yourself, using fetal kick counts.
Your baby weighs in at about two pounds nine ounces (1.16 kilograms)!
(If he only weighs 2 pounds 9 ounces, where has all this other weight come from?? One of the many mysteries of pregnancy.)
Oh, and here is a link to her blog below. She has great ideas, references everything, and post daily.
So, here are a few things I love and would really, really, really, really like to get!!
Finally, decided what crib I want. Can't believe I am going with white, but I am loving it!! I see it on so many blogs, and this modern ikea crib, you can't beat the price! My neighbor bought one and she has really liked it. Only problem is it does not fit a crib skirt! I guess I will be using that crib skirt I bought to make curtains, pillows, a quilt, etc. I really like this changing table from ikea, but I'm still not sure it is the one I want. I found another ikea changing table that will convert back to just a regular storage shelf and I think I may want that one. Funny thing is, I can find the picture of this other table online, but I can't find where to buy it. I may have to go to the store and try to find it there. Again, something I have to wait for. Sigh.... Any little newborn boy outfit from naartjie. I love this store and almost bought a couple little outfits right before I went on bedrest. I could order some online, but I think I would rather wait and get them from the store. I don't know. They are all so cute, soft, and cozy. They have such fun stripes and animal prints. I would love to put my little guy in one of their outfits.
This I know I want, the Joovey Stroller. Such a great stroller for families with more than one kid. Your baby goes in the front and your toddler can sit or stand in the back. Love the orange and black and all the clean lines.

My mom has been here to help this last week and it has been wonderful to have her. She just takes over and does everything, without me having to say anything. It has also been so good to just sit and talk with her about EVERYTHING, such a great distraction from the boredom of bedrest. I appreciate her taking the time to come, I know that her life is busy and it isn't easy to get away.
Well, I'll keep you posted.
