All the pregnant ladies

My sister-in-law showed me this YouTube video and I thought it was HILARIOUS! If you are wondering...yes, this lady is totally 38 weeks pregnant! Quite impressive - make sure you listen to the words and watch the people in the back ground, it is great!

His nursery & we are 40 weeks today!

Well, apparently our baby isn't quite ready to make his grand appearance. I am officially 40 weeks today. Going 8 months with the date of "July 24th" in your head - and then that day comes and you still don't have your baby, well...we think it is a little frustrating. But that's okay.
We went to the Doctor again on Thursday and I was dilated to a "1+" - whoa! HeHe.
However, we know that this little guy will be here by Friday per Doctors orders.
Even though we REALLY want this boy here, I feel extremely blessed that we have carried him as long as we have. We had a scare at 34 weeks because of my blood pressure, swelling and water retention - The doctor told me that we will probably have to deliver the baby Monday because of my blood pressure. Casey put me on strict couch rest and I didn't do a thing all weekend. It worked. So here we are.
The nursery has been done for quite some time and I cant believe how many things we already have for him. The brick wall isn't done yet - we are adding one thing to it (which I am not telling you what it is yet) but Casey painted the wall, and I am totally impressed. What do you think???

As for me - I absolutely LOVE being pregnant. I think it is the most AMAZING thing I have ever experienced. I actually think I will miss it. However, I have gained a whooping 59 pounds - so don't think I haven't had it that rough. My doc says he thinks a lot of it is water, which I am hoping he is right. But every pound, the restless nights, being uncomfortable and extremely hot all the time is totally worth it. And the payoff is coming soon.

I do have to throw in...that my husband is absolutely amazing. He rubs my feet every night and has cooked almost every meal the last 2 weeks and hasn't even complained. I love him!

How delightful...

Monday night, Casey made me dinner. Then we headed out to the park where I read a book and he ‘practiced’ soccer with his 3 vs 3 soccer team (which takes place this weekend). Then we headed to Lindon for an 11:25 PM indoor soccer game of his. I actually did really well, I was sick of sitting when the game ended and ready to crawl into bed when we pulled up to our house at 12:45 AM!

I opened the car door and our fire alarms were blasting off. Casey and I gave the “what the heck?” look and went inside. This wasn’t the first time those suckers had gone off, and they sure are loud!!! Casey had to get the ladder and one of the alarms were at the top of our vaulted ceilings. He tried to reset them as we clearly found that our home was not on fire, but they kept going off…I started reading the back of one and it said something along the lines that ‘if this thing is beeping 4 times it is the CO2’ – sure enough, they were beeping 4 times.

After about 10 minutes in the house and discovering why the alarms were going off (one of the burners to the stove was ‘off’ but not all the way off, so it was letting out all the gases) I went outside with the laptop – I was getting worried about the toxins and the babe! Casey opened all the windows and doors, brought us some otter pops to enjoy on the front porch as our house vented out and made a phone call to the local Fire Department.

The Firemen came, the Paramedics came and they didn’t want to turn off their ‘lights’ or engines upon arriving at our house. There were a couple of them that were bright eyed and chipper – just a couple, the other literally looked like they had just been hit by a bus. They were SO happy to be at our house at 1 in the morning (-:

The Paramedic tested Casey and I for Co2 – we both had some in our system, in fact .4% less than what would have made us have to go to the hospital. The Firemen went into the house. They came back to report that they were getting reading for the Co2 at “ZERO” in the living room and kitchen. Then another Fireman came out and reported HIGH volumes of Co2 in the “baby’s room and the basement” – what the???? How scary is that? Sure, we had the windows and the doors open in EVERY room for about 15 minutes before they arrived, but it was the worst in my baby’s room??? SCARY!!!

Needless to say, they stuck around till all the rooms came back at a ‘zero’ and told us we would be okay there if we wanted to stay. Casey and I slept with ALL the windows and a door open, just in case. I always thought those Co2 alarms were over priced and not nearly as important as a fire alarm – but I stand corrected, and I AM SO GRATEFUL for ours!!! We had only been in the house for 10 minutes and our Co2 count was already that high, imagine if we would have stayed an extra 5 minutes!?!?!?!
