    I went to my drs. appt. today. I gained 3 pds. in 2 weeks. I have been gaining consistently. I did not get a reading on the hb because the doppler she had did not give a reading, but she said based on the fact that she was kicking while she was trying to get a reading she was healthy. She also gave me an internal because I told her that I felt a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen. She said I was tightly closed and although the baby was right in position she was still far away. So that was good to hear. She told me I was measuring a week behind at 34 weeks. She followed up by saying better to be a week behind than a week ahead. So all in all a good appt., I go week to week now.

    I have to go right now, Nicholas wants to get out of the tub!

    My Dh has finially returnd to work today. I am happy about that because now I can get on with my schedule as usual. The dr. said that he will remain in a special shoe and not be able to walk again, the way we are all accustomed too, for at least another 4-6 weeks. I sure hope he recovers quickly. I need him too help me. We havent been able too get much done lately because of his inability to use both feet. Poor thing!!

    Well I just got home after taking Nicholas to the Little Gym. He is in his "new" room right now, and he is supposed to be napping, but I hear him in there.

    Madison seems to be moving all the time. My belly is soooo big! But I'm not complaining. This has been a great, physically feeling, kinda pregnancy.

    I don't know if I want to sleep or clean or eat. I need to do all three, but only one is what I have time for. Well maybe I can eat before I do one of the other two.

    Nicholas is quite now. Maybe he is sleeping....or getting into mischief. I will listen a bit and then check on him. No I am going to check on him right now. Yesterday he destroyed a book at nap time. Gotta go!!!

    Tomorrow is my 36 week appointment. I am excited...I wonder if I am dilated, at all. Probably not, but oh well. I am really not in any big rush. I patiently await her arrival. Don't get me wrong I am very eager too see her, but she will come when she is ready, and I don't want to push that. I still have a ton of things to do. I am one of those people who do best under pressure, so you can believe that I will still not have everything ready a week before.
    I am very tired...and very hot! I am so happy that I have less than a month left, because I just can't take the heat, at all. It was only 70 today, and still I was uncomfortably hot and irritable.
    My feet are swollen. I am not sure if it is the heat or the pregnancy or both, but they are swollen.
    I want something cold ...like sherbert, not icecream, sherbert. I have none so I guess I will have to find another way to satisfy my craving. Probably cereal. When in doubt eat cereal. It is healthy, and cold and crunchy, so it should work.

    I can't wait three more minutes and Michael Ryan will go to bed and I will have my bed all to myself. He is watching t.v. in there until 8:30, and Mike is watching sports in the living room, so I need to wait until Michael Ryan is in bed to do my thing. The sacrifices Moms make...and Dad's do what???
    I'm going. Bye bye

    I went to the drs. on Friday and got to see my favorite doctor...Dr. Randall. She is awesome. She was my first doctor that I saw as a gyn patient.
    Anyway, I gained 1 pound since last week. I can never go a week without gaining . She did not giveme an internal so I am not quite sure of any dilation. She did tell me that it could be any time now and the baby would be completely fine. I had my strep test and that was it. I will see Dr. Eager on Monday of next week. She delievered Michael Ryan, so it will be nice to see her too.

    I had a lot of anxiety yesterday. I think it was because of what Dr. Randall had said about it could be any time now. That really hit home for me. I got to thinking that oh my God I am not ready. I am not prepared.
    I got real emotional started crying, which I haven't done in a while. So, I did what any girl in emotional stress would have done...I went to get a pedicure. And yes, I did feel a lot better!!
    So tonight my dh is at a bachelors party . He has ben gone since 12:00. They were going to race cars in Boston, and then take it from there. Whatever!!
    My brother Ricky came over today and helped me put together all the baby's equipment. He is so good. He did not read a single direction. He put together a stroller, a swing, a bouncy seat, and a bassinette. In like record time. My poor husband...he is so not a handy man. If my brother did not come and help me I would of had to do it. I mean, dh would have tried just to say that he did something, but I still would of finishing whatever he started. Thank God for having handy men in the family, at least!
    Well Michael Ryan is in my room, my T.V. is off, Nicholas is in bed and I can't wait to go to bed. So i will go now, maybe I will peel and orange. Yeah that sounds good. C-ya!

    37 weeks

    I am feeling good for the most part. I do have a nauseous feeling every now and then. I do feel a lot fuller after eating small portions, and I do need the bathroom more often now than I ever did.... and I don't just mean #1.
    I have been getting many more contractions during the course of a day, but they don't hurt and are certaintly not regular. I am very excited, and nervous, and sometimes overwhelmed...but I guess that comes with the territory.

    My dh is graduating on the 21 of this month. I am very excited for him, and wish that I could do something special for him. Right now all I can do is be really happy for him and let him know how proud I am of him.

    Michael Ryan has his kidnergarten screening today. This is also very exciting, as he will get to see his new school. The environment in which he will spend many years in. My baby is going to kidnergarten in September!!

    Well there is really not much else to report on at this time. I just want to note that I am anxiously awaiting Madison 's arrival. I am sooo excited that I am going to be a new Mommy again, for the third time. 3 weeks to go...hopefully sooner, but we'll see.

    I had terrible, terrible hip/pelvic cramps last night. It was excruiating! I could not get comfortable. Everytime I would turn over it would not take me long to turn again. It's bad enought turning is a project...but add the pressure of my aching hips and that makes for one heck of a night's sleep.

    Mother's Day was nice. My dh bought me a "circle of life" pendant. I wanted one for some time now. Michael Ryan wanted to buy me a lipstick...but dh said he didn't know what shade. Michael Ryan was upset, but I told him I loved the thought anyway, and I told dh that he should of just let Michael Ryan pick any lipstick...I wouldn't of cared. We also went to Providence Place Mall where we had to exchange a curtain rod for Madison's room. While we were there we also picked up a rug for her room...it was on sale! So now we have just about everything we need to get her room in order, we just need to set it up. Of course the crown molding is not put up yet. But I know it will get done. With 2 weeks left for this pregnancy, I can't believe how relaxed I am knowing that the room is not done yet.

    I went to my 37 week appointment yesterday. I did not get checked for dilation, she said next week. I lost a pound!!!!That was great news for me, considering I have gained close to 50, so any 1 pound loss is music to my ears. My GBS test came back negative, and my bp was 127/70, I think... but it was great! The baby's hb was 130. It has been the same for about the last month now. It has been high up to this point, maybe she has just really grown.The bigger the baby, the smaller the heart rate.

    O.k well I am off!

    I don't know what happen to my post. I had it all down and nothing!

    Oh well, here it goes again.

    My brother came and hung Madison's curtains on Thursday, early in the morning. He did a beautiful job. The curtains a re pink silk drapes with flowery sheers underneath. My father came that night for dinner and he and dh moved the furniture and laye the rug done. The room looks amazing. I am very happy with how it is turning out. I still need to do work in there but the moldngs have not been put up yet so I want to wait so everything doesn't get dirty. They are supposed to put up sometime next week. My dh is picking the up tomorrow.

    Nicholas has went 3 days with no diaper, with the exception of bedtime. He even let me know that he needed to go cocky on the poddy today, for the first time! I am so proud of him. I hope he doesn't regress when Madison comes. He chose to poddy train at this time all on his own. I was leaning on waiting, but I will follow his lead.

    38.5 weeks and I am anxious! My dh wants to wait until after is graduation, which is Sunday. But I am like.. no bring it on now!
    My honey, I am so proud of him graduating with his Masters in Administration.

    I am sooo tired right now, so I am going!!

    I am so extremely miserable, and irritable! I feel soooo bloated it is not even funny. I don't know, sometimes I feel like my body is ready, and other times I feel like I still have a ways to go. Well anyways my dh graduated today. It was nice to see him so happy. However, I was so uncomfortable. I had to sit for about 3 hours and my butt was aching like you can't imagine. Now, my husband says, I can have the baby.
    Out of all the days for my camera's batteries to die it would be today, the day I need it the most. Well at least I got two good shots of him anyway.
    Tomorrow is my 38 week appointment. I really hope I am dilated or thinned out, something.
    Tomorrow night Michael Ryan is graduating from preschool. I can't wait to see him. He has the opening lines in the ceremony. The teacher said it is because he speaks so well. He is really excited, as well as I.
    Well speaking of my boy, I need to go and tuck him in.

    I went to the drs. today and found out that I gained 2.5 pds., well that certaintly made up for the one pd. loss last week. Whatever! She did check to see if I was dlated and I am, but only a fingertip!! My next week appointment comes after my due date. She told me what to look out for. Things like my mucas plug don't necessarily have to go for me to know I am in labor. She said if I have any contractions that are regular no matter how far apart(becuase this is my third) to call. So that is what I will wait for.
    O.k well I just put Nicholas down for a nap, and I need to eat something!!
