Everyone is getting my hopes up.....

We had a super fun shower 3 of 3 this past Wednesday night. I told buddy, there is no way we will ever be able to keep up this level of "spoiled rotten" now. I mean, is there anything this baby still needs? I think not! We may not even have room for her because of all of her pretties. But we'll make room =) She has some sweet


Everyone says we'll never make it 4 more weeks. Also, mom and I have picked September 18 as our estimated delivery date (full moon and all). I took a fun quiz online per a coworker's request and it estimates just what we're hoping for...2 weeks from now!!! Gracie, if you can hear me (and I know you can) if you're a good girl and behave all week in Jackson from Sept 13-18. Then you can have a prize that Friday night! A BIRTHDAY. You only get one birthdate for your whole life so make it count!

Anyone want to chime in with your delivery date predictions?
Here's what
justmommies.com thinks - as if they're some kind of authority.

"Your labor prediction quiz results are below.....
Get your bags packed early just in case you need them. Make sure your partner has a phone available when he's away because this baby just might come early. We predict your baby will come 2-3 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.8 pounds and that your labor will be about 12 hours long.
This is for entertainment purposes only." (I love their disclaimer!)


Come on Sept 18!!!!!!

Making Progress...

Went to the dr this morning. We're 36 weeks. She'll be full term Sept 15 and due Sept 30. Gracie is head down (good girl!!!) and her heart rate was good. My blood pressure is better than its ever been in my life. I've started to progress, but haven't noticed any contractions, although I read where a midwife tried to explain the "fake" non-progress-producing contractions and she said... "Does the baby ever stick its butt out? Well that's a contraction" hmmmmm, so maybe I have. Obviously not a REAL one or I would know it.

I pre-admitted at the hospital and they said that buddy can bring snacks and his toys (laptop and phone) to keep him occupied. So,everyone should get regular updates =)



Best news, I LOST 1 POUND. I've never been more proud of losing one measly pound in all my life..... hopefully we'll hang out right at 29 lb gain until she gets here! That would be lovely. Going back Sept 11 to see if anything's happening. If not, I get to take my work trip to Jackson Sept 14 - 18! My goal is to make it through Jackson recruiting week =) Then on the way home on Sept 18, those fun hills just outside Flowood surely will help speed things along. I plan on taking those bumps at about 90 mph!



Also, Corbin Lee Tehan is ready for his girlfriend to arrive, so I will try to accommodate. He looks like he's sleeping, but he's dreaming about their first date.
So cute!
