I am showing no progress but I am not that disappointed. I kinda figured my body wasn't ready..this weekend I will be 38 weeks so body, if you are listening, its time to make things happen. I go back to the Dr next Wednesday and if all looks good she is scheduling my induction!!!! So sometime in the week of November 9-13 I will be a mommy.
Yep..did you hear...INDUCTION DAY in 10 days.
I need to be off the blood thinner shots for 12 hours prior to delivery so scheduling makes the most sense.
So next week is my final week of work, my final week of me and hubby time and so many other emotions. But I am ready, ready for a life with 3 of us.

My doctors appointments are every week and Tucker seems to be growing and gaining ( I am measuring a week early). I have my last ultrasound next Thursday to see if this baby is huge or maybe its just me? I show no signs of dilation or thinning...come on body? I am going to start trying the old home remedies to get this body going, I want this baby soon. Any home remedies or old wife's tells you have heard that gets this baby moving?? Also I am not being a baby about getting Tucker here sooner b/c of my own good, its simply because of my blood clotting situation.
(The only reason I pursue the issue of showing signs is because I am scared to death to go into labor on this blood thinning meds).
I am enjoy my evenings at home resting and getting Tucker's room all together. I am enjoying time with Nate, our last of alone times and I just spend a marvelous weekend with my whole family. So why can't I think of anything to write...I blame it on the baby brain.
I promised you Tucker's room and soon you will see it. I wanted a couple people to see it in person first before I posted it on here.
So help me outta this slump..leave a comment, question or concern

I am blessed to be almost full term in my own pregnancy but at one time I thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel. I feel for the women struggling with miscarriages and infant loss. I pray for you all.
This is also for my blog friends and many that I dont know who are struggling with infertility. I want all of you to feel the blessings of pregnancy on day. I pray for ALL of you as well
For more information on this go here...read and pray
Yesterday I had my 36 weeks appointment. Everything is looking great and Tucker is doing just fine. He weighs 6lbs 3oz. He is growing fast. I am hoping for only a couple weeks left of maternity...like my doctor loves me soooo much she will induce me early. Other wise Tucker might gain a pound a week and be a big one. One of the reasons I want her to take little Tucker is because I am now taking two shots a day in my belly. That is NOT fun. I am so sore around my belly for sticking myself the last 9 months. Oh well, it is all worth it. I am saying maybe a baby by the first week of November..I have nothing else going on?
36 weeks and counting
- my feet are still huge during the day
- my nose is huge all the time
- my face has gained as much weight as my belly
- I have 3 maternity shirts left...so I better get creative with jewelry
- I refuse to buy more maternity clothing
- My energy level is falling fast.
- I am outta breath just walking across the room
- I am tired of working but will continue working until he arrives
- My maternity leave will have me off ALL the holidays! yahh
- I took the N1H1 shot and now I am scared of side effects...BUT my dr. really encouraged me to take it so I listened
- I keep buying baby clothes that he doesnt need
- While organizing, hubby said Tucker doesnt' care if the spices are in order so stop?
I am getting impatient......Hope to charm everyone more next week with exciting post

Your nose. It will get bigger as you reach your last month of pregnancy. So big that it looks wrong on your face, you have suddenly turned into a huge nose and nobody will admit it. And along with it growing will come bleeding. Every time you go to blow your nose blood will follow. Its classy
Everyone tells you how cute you look, you just gained in your belly. Not true! Those people are liars. If you just gain in your belly why are you cute little undies not fitting right? Why is your bra fitting like an A cup?
And speaking of bra...I would rather pay someone $20.00 everyday than wear a bra. Why? Well your boobs are now sitting on top of your belly so in order for you to have support your bra must DIG into your sides and back all hours of the day.
Shaving. I forgot I even grew hair in areas below my belly because I couldn't' see there. I had to ask my husband if I needed to shave my bikini line and he looked at me as if I was the woolly mammoth. I got the point quick. But not that it mattered because by the time I was done shaving I had to re-shower because you are all hot and sweaty from trying to reach all the areas. AND then you still didn't do a good job.
Your shoes are tight and snug after month 8 because your feet look like they belong to big foot and not you. And forget tying your shoes...after you leave the house in the morning and if they come untied...too bad, just go the whole day with one shoe untied because it isn't worth bending over at all.
Your back hurts...all the time. Well maybe not for everyone but it will hurt occasionally
Your sleep ends right when you get pregnant. It never gets better I hear either. When you have gained enough weight you can't ever ever get comfortable. And then don't' forget the pee breaks...b/c when you get comfortable its too late because you have to get up and pee. There are nights I kinda kick Nate getting back in bed or want to smother him with a pillow for a while as he enjoys a peaceful nights rest.
Its 45 degrees outside and you are sweating. After making dinner or vacuuming you feel like you have just ran a half marathon.
And just so you know...I WOULD NOT CHANGE ANY OF THESE THINGS FOR THE WORLD!!! It will be so worth it all in a couple weeks!!!!
