I had my doctors apt and growth sonogram on Monday. Much to my surprise the sonogram lady did my testing several times because our little man or should I say (BIG guy) is suppose to be 29 weeks 5 days but it showing to be 2 weeks ahead at 31 weeks 5 days. After seeing my doctor and they measured my tummy, it was confirmed! We have a BIG boy on our hands! :) My doctor even went back and looked at all my sonograms (all normal), and blood test (glucose and thyroid) all those came back perfect! So my doctor said it looks like we are dealing with a case of "genetics" - meaning Clint was a big baby so looks like this one will be too! The original due date was 8/23 but might look more like 8/10 (WOW!! That is only like 8-9 weeks away...) I am fine with that but I want him to be healthy and all I feel like I do these days is stress about him. He kicks plenty and squirms tons so I shouldn't worry so much because its not good for him or me. The doctor said everything else looks great but gonna have to keep a close eye on his size the next couple weeks. Since, this is the first time he has looked big, maybe he just had a growth spurt but the only problem with that is they tend to start picking up weight faster at this point. Lets just hope that is not the case and he just levels out. Father's Day weekend looks like we wont get to see Clint either because he isnt due back until the following week because we are taking a family trip to Table Rock Lake (near Bransom, MO). With doctors orders it looks like we wont be staying the entire week, it will be more like Saturday to Tuesday/Wednesday because I have to be back for a doctors apt on Thursday. We are excited about the trip because we got tickets to the Dixie Stampede http://www.dixiestampede.com/(Emma is LOVES trick riding and its like 2 hours of just that). She will be in heaven!! That's part of the reason I told my doctor I HAD to go!! It should be a nice trip because we will all be together and that is a blessing in itself! Swim lessons is going great for Emma!! She hated it the first day but after mommy gave her a "peep talk" and a swimming Barbie (yes a brib!) It worked and now she LOVES it!! This is the second week and we may sign up for another session for next month. Next month will be a busy month with Sibling Class at the hospital for Emma and I, shower at work and a family/friend shower that my dear friends Lisa, Brit and Kenz have offered to do! Also, my LAST day of work will be on the 27th (if Lane doesn't make any earlier arrivals). This is when I will start my new career as a "stay at home mommy". I can't express how excited and scared I am but so greatful for my husband and his career to be able to have this time with my children. Emma will be in school Mon/Wed/Fri from 9-12, along with Zoo School and Museum school twice a week. It seems that she is becoming so independant and so crazy to think school is just around the corner! I feel so blessed with all the amazing family and friends in my life because without them I don't think we could have done it! My mom and grandmother have been so great with keeping Emma since she was 8 weeks old to now and my friends may not live close (CA, Houston, Granbury, Mineral Wells and Stephenville) but have the biggest spirits that travel my way often and make me feel important. Life is hard but God puts amazing people in our lives so that it seems barable! Until next time...
