Baby Staniak Shower #2

October 22, 2006- We had our second baby shower given by Ryan's Mom. It was a great time! Of course she made it perfect! We received many great gifts and had great company. The food was also delicious. We got many of the great gifts that we had left for Baby Staniak. It was great to see friends and family that we don't get to see quite as often as we like.

3.5 more weeks until the due date... I don't know if we will make it! That belly is huge!:) Ryan's still thinking Halloween will be the day. That's just 9 days away!

Week 36

Well, I went in for my 36 week appointment yesterday and it looks like everything is progressing quite nicely. My blood pressure is good and I am not retaining too much water at this point, which is great. I am 1 cm dilated, 50% effaced and -2 to -3 station (How far the baby is "down" in the pelvis. Measured in negative and positive numbers. -3 is a floating baby, 0 station is said to be engaged in the pelvis, and +4 is crowning. ). This doesn't mean the baby will be here early or anything, just means that the baby is well on it's way. I have been feeling pretty great. I am pretty sleepy and by the end of the work day I just want to be laying down, but other than that, things aren't bad at all.
We went on our hospital tour this past Saturday. It all just makes everything more real. We are getting really excited and Dad-to-be is ready for the baby to come! (easier for him, since he won't be doing the pushing!) I am very excited though.. can't wait to meet the little one. (Or maybe the big one... Dr. thinks it's going to be at least 8 pounds!)

Week 34

I am getting so big! I feel like a whale! The baby is still moving around a lot and enjoys hanging out with my ribs. It's getting so close are we are getting really excited.

Week 34 - SMILE!

Here is the precious little stinker! Weighing in at 5+ pounds at the moment and still looking to arrive around November 14th... looks like we didn't need to worry about the size. The baby kept looking at the "camera" and we even got a peek at the little toes.
I am doing well. Still measuring a little big in the belly, but it just may be the position of the baby. Everything is great. Only about 6 weeks until we get to meet our little bundle of joy!
