Are We There Yet????

31 Weeks and Counting!
I think he is running out of room and FAST! He doesn't move near as much as he used to and I have had a few scares because of it. I have had to call my Doc's office a few times because I hadn't felt him move for 24 hours. They told me to go straight to Labor & Delivery but I really felt like everything was fine. I asked if there was anything I could do before going to the hospital. They said I could drink an entire glass of orange juice and then lay down for an hour. If he moves at least 10 times everything is A ok. If he moves less then I should go straight to the hospital. Brett and I waited intensely for a single movement. One then two then he started going crazy. We were both so relieved! Because he doesn't move as much, I have done the glass of orange juice tests several times. I also have started to have contractions (braxton hix). I have been instructed to try and lay down when this happens. I try to do this as much as possible but with working it proves to be more difficult.

His room is really starting to come together. Stay tuned for pics! I want to wait until we get all the accessories up and it's all completed.


Hallie's latest art project...my belly! She had fun covering my belly with Valentine stickers. She is going to love having another cousin!

Yeah, I'm so excited for you--you're getting close. I know about those scary tests--just always TRUST your instincts and if something doesn't seem right insist on being seen by a doc!
