11 days until what?!

My baby shower was on Sunday and it was great! We were blessed by our church and friends. I could not be more grateful. I did not get alot of pictures but here are a few from that day.

So thats a few picture from the shower. And my husband wanted to be cut out of that picture because he wasnt ready for it to be taken..lol!
Well, your probably wondering what the title to this blog means....11 days. Yesterday I had on of my weekly non-stress tests. I do them twice a week. And my doctor came in and she looked at my chart and said, "Well, 11 days" I looked at her really dumbfounded like what. She said in 11 days you will be 34 weeks. We will not stop you if you go into labor! They are being cautious because I delivered my son early and had preeclampsia with my daughter. But just hearing from my doctor 11 days freaked me out. I could have a baby in less than 2 weeks. WHAT?!?! Now i'm sure I will not go into labor anytime soon. I'm hoping to have her around 37 weeks. I;; be very happy with that. After this shocking revelation from trained medical professionals I went to target and bought the rest of the stuff I needed. All we have left is a mattress and a changing table. (Still debating on getting a changing table) I have her closet organized and i'm trying to get the house in tip top shape. Just incase people want to come see the little one after she's here. I want my house clean. (I know, whos really going to be looking at my house when theres a new baby, but i'm crazy about people seeing my house dirty) Still trying to figure out who's gonna take my other 2 kids while i'm in labor. Lynae said she will do it, but I might want my sister there with me. Oh....11 days.....I keep repeating it to myself.

Alot to do today....

Well, tomorrow is my baby shower. I'm a little concerned because no one has RSVP'd. I know that doesnt mean anything but who knows. Its at our church and everyone from church is invited so we really have no clue how many people will be there. And that makes it very difficult to plan for. We are doing a cake and punch. I wanted to do some finger foods but without and estimation of the number of guest it stressed me out to no end. I had no idea how much food to buy and I didn't want to waste anything. Jason is really unhappy about the shower because I'm making him come. We invited men...how can I expect any guys to show up if the father to be won't be there! My sister has done a good job planning this shower. (I of course have given my opinions and input on EVERYTHING) She probably is ready to strangle me at this point!!
I'm pretty excited I'm getting my hair done today! I met a hairstylist through my online baby boards. My hair is getting too long for me to continue doing it. Its hard for me as a hairstylist to let someone else do my hair but these roots have got to go!! I did do hair this week, it had been awhile since I've done hair because I haven't felt so hot through out this pregnancy. It felt so nice to be creative again! And Courtney brought her daughter Avery over with her. She was the best behaved child I have seen in a long time. It gave me hope that Emerson might be good too! I feel like my kids have gone crazy lately. I'm so tired of arguing with them. It does no good. They only listen to Jason...I just don't understand it! Am I the only mother who can't control her kids?!?!

Raegan Leigh....

My sis in law had her baby. She was 32 weeks along and it was an emergency c-section. Mommy and baby are doing well. Raegan Leigh was born August 16 at 7:14 am weighing in at 4 lbs 6 oz and 16 inches long. She is in the NICU but she is breathing on her own. She does have jaundice so shes under the lights. She is doing better than anyone expected for being so early. I have to say she is HUGE for a 32 weeker!

Nesting much?

This past few days I've been cleaning alot. And now I'm on my sewing kick. I made both crib sets for my older 2 kids. I bought one for Emerson so i feel like I need to make something for her! I decided on a rag quilt. I've never made one before. I have never even seen a pattern. So i'm kinda winging it! I will also make a few burp rags. I should make them out of flannel but I'm using some fabric I already have. Hopefully if I layer the fabric it will become absorbant enough! I mean it is just for spit up right?! I will be working on these projects all day and night. I will post pictures when they are done. I also have a question for anyone who makes their own bows for babies. Where do I find the elastic for the headband part?!?!? Help me!

It's finally here!

The first day of school! HooRay!! I can finally get some things done around the house. I'm trying to make my new recliner work in my front room. I wanted one to rock the baby in when she gets here. I just have such a hard time with re arranging my furniture to make it work. I LOVE the open floor plan we have but it limits my options on furniture placement! UGH! Heres a picture of what it looked like before...any ideas....let me know.

A real quick Vent....

So, I'm pretty pissed off at something right now. I'm going to make this vent pretty generic because I'm not quite sure who reads this thing. I'm so tired of all the complaining how hard everything is, it's hard for everyone, right? You are not the only one. Then if you spend forever complaining about stuff don't go out and do the exact opposite of what you've been saying. People are getting tired of it! And yes, we talk about it, all of us. I'm just the only one who will ever say anything because to be quite frankly I don't care. Next time you feel the need to call anyone to complain about the drama that has happened...think twice. You really can only call "wolf" so many times!!

Where do the days go

I'm a little behind on keeping this updated. I guess my life is really not as exciting as I hoped it was. I'll do a quick recap of the past few days.
Wed- This day was the 12 anniversary of my oldest brothers suicide. It was a sad day but my sister and I tried to make the best of it. We took the kids to the horse show at the fair. The loved it. The horses were dressed up in costumes. It was a blast. We went to Hobby Lobby (Because I can't stay away from there) We had to get some more scrapbook paper for the shower invitations. (The invitations go out in the church bulletin on Sunday!!)
Thurs-My parents 26 wedding anniversary. I stayed home and did laundry all day. When Jason got home we took the kids to the fair. I of course wanted a gyro (I LOVE them) Well we waited in line for 45 mins for one and it was the worst excuse for a gyro I have ever seen!! Oh well. My parents met us at the fair and we took the kids on some rides. They didn't enjoy the little roller coaster like I thought they would. Of course they got some little blow up toys and did some other kiddie rides. My hip felt like it popped out of place so I wanted to go home. It was perfect weather that evening for the fair though, goods time had by all!
Fri-I had another doctors appointment this morning. I go twice a week for non stress test now. I lost a pound between tuesday and friday. Doctor isn't too happy about it but she said the baby looks good so just try to eat a little more. (I'm now drinking carnation instant breakfast a few times a day) Emerson was moving a lot for this test so they were happy. All looked good. I am now 30 weeks. If all goes perfect I will have her in about 8 weeks. (I had pre-e with Jaidyn and went into pre term labor with Joshie so they wont let me go to 40 weeks)
Today we are going car shopping, finally! I'm so excited but Jason wants make sure we don't jump into the first thing we see. (I tend to do this and not look around!) We are nervous about having a car payment again. We haven't had one in over a year!! I think that is why he is so apprehensive. I'm really hoping to get a nice SUV, but it is a possibility I will be rockin' a soccer mom van. With gas prices these days i gotta check my ego and protect my wallet!! I will post later and update on our car shopping trip. I'm sure I will have some stories to tell....we're taking the kiddos!

I have been tagged!

SO a fellow blogger has tagged me. I must write 7 facts about myself then tag other bloggers. (I will have to edit later with the bloggers I am chosing to tag...all of you have already been tagged!!) I wish my 7 facts could be more interesting but...hey, as I say in my house. You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!

1. I got married at 18 and despite what everyone said, we are still married and very happy!

2. This baby was a shock. I was scheduled to get "fixed" when we found out. It took awhile for me to become happy about it!

3. I am very fast with rude comebacks and jokes. I pretty much always win a verbal battle.

4. Shopping is a weakness of mine. I don't really care what I'm shopping for, I just like the thrill of it all.

5. I hate doing laundry and half the time dont fold it! If you want clean clothes look in the basket in the laundry room. (I know its such a bad habbit)

6. I'm secretly addicted to reality shows and myspace. I watch almost every reality show there is. And I spend hours on myspace "lurking"

7. I love reading romance novels. (not the ones with Fabio on the cover!)

I hope I didn't bore anyone with my 7 facts. I will edit tomorrow with my blogs to tag!

Doctor today...

I had my first NST today at the doctor. Everything went well. Im measuring 3 weeks ahead but I lost 4 pounds in 3 weeks. I'm okay with that =) I go back on Friday for another NST. Her heart rate was a little iratic (sp) But everything else looked great. My BP is normal! I'm really ready for the next few weeks to be over with though. I can't wait for Emerson to be here!! I also can't wait to walk up a flight of stairs without feeling like I ran a marathon....(No, no mention of mountains)

I used to love Mondays.

Mondays were the days Jaidyn went back to Kindergarten camp. She missed last Thursday because she was sick. So I didnt know that last Thusday was the last day of camp. My dad picked her up this morning tot ake her and he brought her back. She was in tears....so was mommy. I now have to wait 2 weeks for actual school to start. I loved my few hours of peace. This next 2 weeks will go by so slow!

Yes, It is that big of a deal to me!

So I will start this post by saying for the past few days all I wanted was really good pizza. Well one night I settled and we ordered Pizza Hut. Last night however we went to this really good pizza place and I had Jason order a large so I would have leftovers. Well this morning Jaidyn wakes me up way too early (So yes I am grumpy) I go the fridge to pull out a water and the only pizza in there is from Pizza Hut! I was pissed!!!! I didn't like the pizza hut why would I want it for leftovers when I had good pizza in there. (And ALOT of good pizza leftover) SO I call Jason, and ask him if he took all of it. He was Like um, yeah...you have pizza hut so I took this. So yes I yelled at him, "Why would I want that when there was good pizza, you could have taken a few pieces not the whole box!!) He got pissed off at me and said its not that big of a deal. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! To me this just ruined my day, yes it is that big of a deal to a hormonal pregnant woman. Then he had the nerve to hang up on me! If wants to get back into this house after work, he better bring home my pizza or sleep in the dae woo. And I'm am not joking!
