Happy Due Date! :S

ah Yes, today is my 'due' date. No baby. I chose not to be induced until after 41 weeks. Like I said before I really don't want to be induced. I'm still dilated to a 2. At my 40 week appointment they said my cervix is a lot more softer and starting to move forward. I didn't know it did that? Also baby's head is even lower and my doctor said that when she does decide to come she should come pretty fast. I'm hanging on to that hope. OH p.s I have had my membranes stripped 3 times.. Yeah if your baby isn't ready to come your baby ISN'T going to come.


am
a
mess.

I cry at the drop of a hat. Not just because I'm very pregnant and very miserable, but also because everything that is going on is really sinking in and reality is hitting me hard and all these crazy hormones sure aren't helping.
My husband is leaving soon. We wont be together again for a whole year.. Yes there is R and R but does 2 weeks really compare to the amount of the time that he is gone?? I have been stressing big time about how Ellie will handle everything. I pray that I will be able to keep her somewhat busy. It wont matter how busy she is she will always want her daddy but hopefully it will make things a little easier for her.

Our anniversary is on the 5th. 4 years baby! A new baby would be the PERFECT anniversary present. Although it would be an even better present if she came before that and we are able to be home for our anniversary and not at a hospital. But ya know beggars can't be choosers.

I've been getting a little teary eyed that Ellie isn't going to be our baby anymore. I think Jordon has been having a hard time about it too. One night after Ellie was asleep Jordon kept going in Ellie's room and checking on her. Then he came in our room and asked, "Can Ellie come sleep in our bed? I need some Ellie time." It was the stinkin cutest thing ever. Jordon is a major anti-kids sleeping in our bed. But he went and woke her up and put her in our bed so they could get some snuggles in. I love seeing him be a dad. It is my most favorite thing in the whole world.

No belly pics for now... Im not really feeling it at the moment. But don't worry I will get one so everyone can tell me just how ginormous I am. Ha.
Keep sending those good vibes that this baby will come soon!

Did The Baby Pop Out Yet??

NOPE.

Someday maybe.

Had my 38 week appointment last Friday. I was suppose to have it on Thursday but my husband forgot about it and never came home from work and wouldn't answer his phone. Yeah can you even imagine how furious I was?! I was bawling my freakin eyes out. A little over the top? Yeah. But I'm pregnant..
Luckily the Doctor's office was able to squeeze me in the next day. I think the lady felt bad cause I was totally crying over the phone.
Good stuff.
Well here's the goods from my doctors appointment. 2cm dilated.  PROGRESS! I was only 2cm when I went into labor with Ellie. About 60% effaced. Cervix is nice and soft and everything looks ready to go.(According to my doctor) Had my membranes stripped. Thought I was going to cry it hurt so bad. Apparently my cervix is all the way in the back so it was hard for her to really get in there!! But oh she did.. I thought for sure after going through that I would at least deserve to go into labor that weekend. No luck. I was contracting all day Friday and I made sure I walked around a ton and all that good stuff to keep them going but nighttime came around and everything completely stopped. My mind was going a million miles a minute and I had so much energy for some reason and I could not get to sleep that night. I didn't fall asleep until 6 in the morning. It was fabulous.
Ellie giving her sister loves, and trying to convince her to come out.
Jordon finally got his official orders for deployment. lame. But good news is he isn't leaving right after my due date like we thought. He will have an extra week or two if this babes decides to come on time. Its nice to finally have a date to help prepare myself. It also makes me sick to my stomach every time I think about it so thats cool.
I'm so anxious to get this baby out so Jordon can have as much time as possible with her but apparently its up to her. whateve.
TURKEYS DONE!
Nothing fits anymore, not even my maternity shirts.
We have just about everything ready for this baby sooo she should just COME OUT ALREADY! If everyone could just send me some good vibes that she will come soon that would be great. Other than really wanting her out I have been feeling pretty decent. Although me and Ellie got a nice little cold today.  Hopefully it will go away soon.
In other news our nice and quiet upstairs neighbors moved. :( I'm very nervous to see who moves in next. Hopefully someone quiet because with a new baby I wont be holding my complaints back.

The New Big Sis

I have been wanting to do something for Ellie when I have the baby. Just a little something that we can give her when she meets her new baby sis. Something to help celebrate her becoming a big sister. Also so she wont feel left out with the attention of the new baby.
But I just don't know what I should do.. I have thought about making Ellie and Nolah little matching bracelets and big sis lil sis shirts, but not sure if that will get done before the babes comes.
So if anyone has any super cute ideas to share I'm all ears!

September!

It's September!!!!!
That means that sometime this month we will have a new baby girl in our lil fam!
I had my ultrasound and doc appointment this past week.
The ultrasound was so fun and made me super excited for her to come.
The babes is surely a girl, and she is very very wiggley. 
The ultrasound tech was cracking up about how wiggley she was. 
It was hard to get a really good profile of her face but when we finally did she had her hands up by her eyes and it made her look like she was rubbin her eyes.
So cute.
Either she has the best pouty face ever or this baby girl has some gigantic lips.
I can't wait to see what she looks like.
She is measuring perfectly. The doc said she is measuring in the 58%.
She asked how big Ellie was when she was born and said that she defiantly thinks this baby will be bigger! Ellie was 6lbs 9oz.

 35 weeks
I am 1cm dilated and doc said her head is really really low.
I was super excited to hear that her head was low because every time someone would check me with Ellie the first thing they would say was HOLY COW her head is WAAAY up in there. Ellie defiantly made me do all the work.
So I'm crossing my fingers that this will make my labor a lot faster!
At my 38 week appointment they are going to strip my membranes, hopefully it will work like magic and put me into labor.
I can't believe we are so close!
I defiantly don't have everything ready and probably should get on that..
I want her to be here already but I don't. 
I'm getting nervous!
I love my gigantic belly even though its making life miserable. 
Jordon isn't even nervous at all.
It kinda makes me wanna punch him.
He said as long as I have the baby in the hospital he is fine and dandy.

 36 weeks

4 more weeks to go!
