35 Weeks

I can't believe that I am already 35 weeks! I made it past the 33 week mark, when Kaiden was born and was so relieved when that week was over. At my 31 week appointment I saw Dr. M who is one of my favorite doctors now. He was so great and even asked if I was a little nervous to be coming up on my 33rd week (he was reading my mind) He told me that I really only had a 15-20% chance of the same thing happening that did with Kaiden. That made me feel soooo much better. I wonder why none of the other doctors told me what the percentage of the same thing happening would be? Oh well, we made it through and things seem to be going pretty well. If I had her today, I wouldn't be too worried but it would be great if I didn't have her for a few more weeks.

I haven't had any Braxton Hicks or anything like that so that has been a relief. My feet have been swelling up a lot lately though, which was a little scary and is ugly. Maybe I am a little paranoid but I called the nurse a few times just to make sure things are normal and that it is not Toxemia. I go in today and they will run some tests just to make sure. I'm just really excited to have made it past the 33 weeks!!!
Here are some funny pics of my uncle Mike and Little bro comparing our stomachs: (oh and one of cute Letecia and I. My shirt looks a little white trash-y but I had to do it to compare the stomachs)

House stuff

I'm sure no one is really excited about the progress of our house but I am doing this more so I have it. They have done SO much on our house in the last month, we should actually be in, in the next few weeks. Our final inspection was scheduled for July 30th but I think it will be bumped back a little because there were a few things that weren't going to be done in time. Paul is painting right now and it was a little stressful at first. He really needed a weekend at the end of the scheduled time but they gave him a weekend before, when he would have been doing prep work (if that makes sense) Anyway, he found out that cabinets weren't going to be done in time so he is going to finish the painting today and tomorrow, so he has the weekend to do it.

I have been in charge of picking out the appliances and counter tops. Really, both Paul and I have
but I have had to call and get bids from all these different companies. I think it would have been easier if there was just one to go with and then there wouldn't be so many bids to sift through and counter tops to choose from. We are coming along though and I am excited to have things finished...
