Well, I went to my 34 week check today, I am measuring bigger than I should. At 29 weeks I measured 29 weeks, at 32 weeks I measured at 37 weeks and today at my 34 week I measured at a huge 39.5 weeks. My Dr. was saying that he will induce me at 39 weeks before, but today he said that we are going to do an ultrasound at my 38 week visit and if the baby weighs over 4000 grams he will do a c-section. Part of me hopes he is 4000 grams but part of me would like to have a natural childbirth also. I am so mixed about it at this time. It's really in God's hands and he will make the final decision. I just want Greyson to be ready when it comes. I don't want to have to keep him in the NICU for ANY reason at all. I had another Non Stress Test again today, it was perfect. They said Greyson is moving around in there a lot. He got the hiccups while we were doing it, and I could hear Greyson jumping in there. It was so cute. So, 4 more weeks for sure, and 5 if he isn't weighing to big. We'll have to wait and see!

Oh my gosh , I really didn't think I would ever start getting uncomfortable. Today I had to come home from work because my back is hurting so bad. I came home to go to bed, and I am getting ready to do just that. Then on top of the back pain, my hips are hurting bad, and I feel bruised in my womanly areas, if you know what I mean. The girls at work said I have totally dropped just since working with them yesterday. It makes me realize I have got to get my bag packed for the hospital, so I started making my list last night. I can't think of everything, what do I need?????
Anyway, here is a picture I again took of myself last night, I am so uncomfortable, and can't imagine making it another 5 weeks. Other signs are happening but I won't post about them. Anyway, I will keep you all posted, nighty night for now!

So today I had my first Non Stress Test. I will have them weekly to make sure the baby is doing well in there because I am high risk. It makes me feel good to know that Greyson and I are getting special care. Starting July 31st I will have to have them 2 times a week. They are boring but it's nice to get to hear his little heartbeat that whole time. It also checks to make sure that I'm not having contractions or anything. So, today it was good results. I am glad to see that. His little heart was beating so fast and hard I thought he sounded like he was gonna come on out it was so loud. I will have another ultrasound in 2 weeks. I always look forward to those. Also, he has the hiccups daily now. I let the girls at work feel him with them yesterday. Poor Greyson, I wish I could just give him a glass of water. It's cute though. I try to talk to him whenever he has them so he knows I know what's going on, LOL. Poor baby. As a matter of fact, he has them right this minute. Sorry buddy!
Oh also, St. Louis had some bad storms last night. I was scared. The winds were like non I have ever seen. A lot of damage was done to the St. Louis area. Mom's house had a big tree on top of it when we got back from going out to dinner last night. I was glad she wasn't home during that. Also, we had no electric for about 4 hours. Right now though unfortunately 500,000 people are still going to be without power for the next 3-5 days. It has been 100+ degrees out. This weekend we are supposed to get some relief from the heat. Tonight there are supposed to be storms again. I'm not looking forward to them at all.

Well, last Thursday I went to the Dr and found out that I will be induced at 39 weeks unless something happens sooner. I wouldn't be upset about that as long as he's ready to come out. I can't believe how tired I am. I don't want to go to work, put on make-up, nothing. I am out of breath, he has taken over officially. I blow dry my hair and don't fix it anymore, I barely put on eyeliner. What has happened to me? I apologized to the people at work for making them see me like this everyday, LOL. I hope I will want to look better after he gets here. Or else, he is gonna have one pathetic looking Momma. I wondered what it was going to be like to be tired and done at the end, well it's starting!! I can do it, YES I CAN!!!

Dear Precious baby Greyson,
Mommy got your nursery finished yesterday, and she loves it. I can't wait to see you laying in your bassinet. Even more I can't wait to hold you in my arms. I have never wanted to meet you more than I do right now. I am getting very anxious to see your beautiful face. I know life is going to change big time when you get here and I can't wait to see what that will be like. I love you so much and can't wait to kiss your gorgeous face and sweet little feetsies.

Tonight Carlos, Mom and I are going to a 3D ultrasound at 6, so I will post a picture of Greyson then. I obviously took this picture myself while I was in the bathroom. Notice the toilet paper.....real nice. Oh and by the way I had an ultrasound done earlier today at my Dr's office, Greyson is measuring at 4lbs 6oz already. Which would measure me at like 33 weeks, WOW!

I think I have to buy this for Greyson. It says DIABETIC MOMS MAKE THE SWEETEST KIDS. I just love it. But it's like $15.00 with shipping. Isn't that kinda high? I could probably have one made for lots cheaper. Hmmmmmmpphhh, I guess I'll have to think about it.

Well, we closed on our house on Friday finally. I am so glad to have that completed and to be back in St. Peters. I love it here so much. Although we are done moving, I now have so much stuff to do before Greyson gets here, and I'm not motivated!!! I have been hoping my motivation will start soon but it hasn't yet. Everyday that I have time to do things around the house I find something easier to do. I have to get this stuff done!!! Greyson's room has really come together, it's just the rest of my house. It's a mess. Oh well, I'm just glad to be back in St. Peters!
