We had our maternity pictures taken this past weekend. I can't wait to get them! A friend of ours, Arden, took them and she is truly an amazing photographer! So keep checking back...I will post them as soon as I get them! Until then, here are some pictures of me and my belly!!! And one of Miss Emmy. Pam brought over a blue & brown sweater to match Owen's room for her, and as you can see, she is not happy about it!!

Day at the Hospital!

Last Friday, September 19th, I got up to go to work (actually I was going to work at a BAE golf tournament) and on the way, stopped off for my weekly doctors appointment. I was shocked to learn that I was dilated! She hooked me up to the contraction machine and wouldn't you know it...the next thing I know, I have been placed on COMPLETE bed rest and she sent me to the hospital!! So....my day of golf was canceled and Billy and I spent the next 7 or 8 hours in the hospital. They gave me a bunch of shots to stop contractions and then sent me home with medicine that I have to take every 4 hours until the day he is born!!! The doctor really wants me to make it to the October 16th date we have planned. I am working from home and trying my hardest to be a good girl and stay off my feet!! Here are some pictures of my hospital visit! We were bored!

Getting Ready for Owen!

Here are some recent pictures! That is me, Lauren, Markel & Miss Marley getting Owen's room organized after the shower. You can see he got a lot of stuff! Then....by best friend Markel, surprised me with a pack n play when I came home from work one day! Then Markel and Billy put together the swing and the stroller! Don't they look a little puzzled? Of course, Billy had to try it out on our first baby, Emmy! And then, finally, all 3 are ready!

September 11, 2008

We went to the specialist on Thursday, September 11, 2008. Everything is looking good! He weighed right at 5 pounds, which is right where he needs to be! I am so proud of my little man! I got a call from my OBGYN, who I have to start visiting once a week now!! I had some blood work done, and I am still anemic!! I have been taking iron pills for 60 days now, in addition to my prenatal vitamins, so I don't understand! They switched the type of iron pills I am taking and suggested drinking a glass of OJ to help my body absorb the iron. If anyone has any suggestions on getting more iron and what is best to eat, please let me know! I am all ears! So as of today (9/16/08), only 30 DAYS LEFT!!!! The countdown has begun!!! I am soooo nervous!!!
