STILL nothing.....boo!

Today was the last Dr's appt we will have until after the baby is born. My blood pressure was a little high but not so high that the Dr. was worried about it. I am barely dilated to a 1 and still only 50% effaced. We are still going to be induced on Sunday night at 9:30pm so we should get to meet Addie sometime monday....



We had a great Christmas We played tons of games (Charles even got everyone to play Monopoly twice,) ate tons of delicious food and even did some day after shopping.

Charles also bought me a Juicy Couture diaper bag that I will post pics of later.... whoo hoo!


Still nothing happening

Had another Dr's appt today and there is STILL nothing happening.....I am still 50% effaced but not dilated at all! And the Dr. thinks the baby is already 7 1/2 lbs. It looks like she will be a big girl!

The good news is that if she hasn't arrived by January 4th, we have scheduled an induction....so at the very most she will be born in 12 days.


Dinner with friends

We went to our friends Don and Alicia Hickmans house last night so that Don could teach Charles (and me) how to cook Chicken Marsala and Chocolate lava cakes. We had an awesome time and the food was sooooo good! We also got to catch up with them and spend some time with their 3 adorable kids. It was a great night!


Nothing happening

Today was our first appointment where the Dr. starting checking our progress. I am 50% effaced but not dilated at all. It looks like Addie will not be coming early after all. :( She is still 2 weeks big so hopefully I won't have a 10 lb baby!!!


Didn't get to see the Dr.

So today was our first appointment to check my cervix and unfortunately we were unable to see the Dr. because he had 4 babies to deliver..... We will have to wait until next week to see if Addie is getting ready to be born.

W e did get to see the nurse and she took my blood pressure and measurements. Everything is great and Addie is still about 2 weeks big. They will probably do an ultrasound next week to check her actual size and weight. I also only gained 2 lbs....yah!!! My swelling however is still bad and according to the nurse will only get worse......


Bear Lake

We went to Bear Lake for the weekend and had a great time! Charles' office paid for us to stay at this really awesome 10000 sq ft mansion right outside of town. It was called The Inn at Snow meadows and not only was it beautiful but the couple that owned it thought of every detail. Every room had a different theme and we were in the Bohemian room. We stayed there with about 10 other couples from his office and ate like kings and played games and relaxed the whole weekend. It was sooo cold (0 degrees and below) and the drive home was a little scary, but it was a great weekend! http://bearlakesinnatsnowmeadows.com/


Christmas lights

I finally have Christmas lights on the outside of my house....yah! I have always wanted to put them up and Charles finally did them for me today! I am so excited and they look great


Maternity and Christmas card photos

Today we went with our favorite photographer, Brody Dezember and got some pictures of us and the bare baby belly taken before Addison is born. It was soooo cold and really hard to do but I think we got some amazing pics. My favorite is toward the end when Brody made Charles lift up his shirt and get some belly pics too. :)
