My friend had her baby! I am so thrilled for her! I cried when I got the news. She had a little boy on July 8th at 11:30ish am. 8 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches long. She had a 6 hour labor and no induction needed! Yay!
I have absoutley nothing new to talk about with my own pregnancy. So thought I'd share a little development info. Our baby is now the size of an Eggplant. Since we can't decide on a real name, we rename the baby with each produce so now she is Ellie Eggplant.
Weeks 25-28 (month 6): Eggplant

Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
I returned the bedding I originally purchased and got the new set instead. I'm so glad I did, I think it looks great in the nursery! We also got our crib mattress and our dreser/changer combo this weekend and have it all set up! It's so fun walking into our nursery now- I find myself going in there and just staring. I can't wait until our little girl is here to enjoy it too!
My camera is bad at picking up true colors- the bedding is more purple then pink.
and the dresser!
and just for fun- these are the invitations for one of my baby showers. I think they turned out so awesome and they match the bedding (which I didn't know was going to happen) so they will look really cute framed in the nursery.
and these were in the invitations too- what a cute idea! I love it!
Sorry it's been a while since I updated. I caught a stomach bug from work. It was awful! I was so sick! Every time I would stand up I would get dizzy and puke. Then I started contracting, since I was dehydrated from not being able to keep anything down. Just BH but still no fun!
The heat didn't help at all. It has been so freaking HOT here! We have central air but I have still been so miserable. I've been running the a/c as low as it goes plus had our ceiling fans on PLUS ice on my neck to feel half way decent. Poor DH was freezing his butt off, but I forbid him from adjusting anything. So we finally went out and got me a little pool to hang out it. I was so sure my neighbors would think I was such white trash for hanging out in a inflatable kiddy pool in a bikini all big and pg but I didn't care! We finally got it all set up and I must say it's heaven! It's pretty large for a kiddy pool 10 feet by 6 feet and 2 feet deep! I could totally give birth in that thing if I wanted to!
Even Dh got in and enjoys it! Notice the cigar hanging out of his mouth!
No pics of me in the pool- I'm not brave enough to share my large pg booty on the internet but I will share some belly pics. This last week I have really popped! There is a huge difference between my 28 week pic and my 27 week pic. My little girl is growing in there and I am so glad!
It's funny the comments I get now. Some people think I am so tiny for 7 months pg and then the other day one of the NICU girls asked if I am having twins. I though that was a weird comment because I'm really carrying smaller then I thought I would for being so short.
Dh also went out yesterday while I was working and bougt a chair for the nursery. DH fell in love with this leather recliner and decided its the perfect chair "for reading to our daughter". How could I say no to that logic?! We are supposed to get it on Friday. I hope it looks good in the nursery! I'll share pictures when it comes in.
We had another u/s and OB appt yesterday. It was a pretty fun appt. I had to do my Glucose test. Which was awful! That drink is so thick and sweet. I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep it down, but thankfully I did! I even had extras so I made DH drink some too! The whimp couldn;t finish his 5 oz though!
I was worried that all that extra sugar would make the baby all bouncy during the u/s but she was resting. We got some great pictures of her! It was fun to see her acutal details and not just blurry pics because she was moving too much.
She weighs 1135 gms or 2 lbs 8 oz. She is still measuring a week behind but my OB is not concerned. The baby grew 4 weeks worth of growth in 4 weeks, so even though she is behind she is growing on track. She is also breech and my OB does not think she will turn so she told me to be prepared for a c/s. Which I have been all along since my RE kept telling me this is the only way I would deliver.
We also saw something interesting on the u/s. Since I have a severly bicronated uterus I have what's called two horns. My uterus is V shaped instead of a big opeen space. There is a small opening connecting the two sides so that still makes it one uterus, but its almost like having two. Well some how the baby got her feet on my other horn. It was so weird to see! The u/s tech and Dh though it was very cool but I think its weird and it kinda freaks me out! I worry about her getting her feet stuck over there or pulling them and rupturing my uterus. My OB wasn't at all concerned so I guess I shouldnt be either. I just never imagained she could do that. I have pics that show it well, but after my appt I had to take a nap since I had to work.
We also have our first baby shower coming up on Sunday. I am so excited! Its gonna be a fajita bar outside on a super hot day so I am hoping the weather givees us a little break and it won't go above 100. Fingers crossed for cooler weather!!
I only have a few seconds to write. I am sitting in the nursery at work with 5 very crabby babies and any second one will start up again.
I wanted to write a quick note about our shower on Sunday. It was so awesome!! I had a blast, as did DH (it was a couples shower) I am pretty sure that all of our family had a great time too. We played a few games which worried me becausse I'm not really a shower game person. I think most of them are cheesy but the ones we did were so fun (at least to watch) We had a nursery rhyme game where people got the first line of a nursery rhyme and they had to finish it. It was much harder then I though it would be. We also did a Price is Right game where there were 5 baby items and everyone had to guess the total price without going over. We also did Baby Bingo while we were opening gifts.
The food was amazing! My mother's husband is a phenominal cook- hands down some of the best fajitas I've had!! Everyone was overwhelmingly generous! I was so blown away with how many gifts we got! Almost all of our big stuff had been bought! We got a bouncer and some cute outfits from my sister. Another sister got me our swing, my mom got us a bassinette and made some super cute swaters, dresses and blankets. We got so many clothes and blankets that I don't think we will have to buy a thing to cloth our child until she is a year old! It was really quite amazing how much stuff we got- AND I still have 2 showers to go!
Alright- babies are crying. Back to work. I'll add pics of our loot later!
I got my 1 hr glucose test back and I failed. My sugar was 190! I have a 3 hr scheduled for Monday. I really hope it goes well. With my lingering morning sickness I do not do well not eating. I do even worst not eating for a while and then having something sweet so I am really hoping I don't throw up the glucola (or worse- pass out!) and have to do it all again.
