9th Appointment

Mesha is keeping the bounce seat warm for Riley
Just had our 9th doctors appointment today. I have gained another 3 pounds which brings me up to a total so far of 32 pounds. I got measure again and everything seems to be on track. My measurement is 34. We found out the Riley's head is down which is a great thing! Our next appointment is on April 1st and we were told that during that visit we are getting an ultrasound done. Since I was 8 pounds and something inches and Adam was almost 9 pounds our doctor just wants to see how big Riley might get by my due date.

Riley's Room

I thought that I would share pictures of Riley's room. Adam and I painted her room a very light green color. It took us both Saturday and Sunday to get it done. We ended up buying her crib on discount because it was a floor model at babies r us. The best part is that it was already put together! The dresser we have had for a couple of years now and I am glad that we decided to keep it. I picked up the changing table at babies r us and put it together. Pretty much we have everything we need. If we can find a glider or rocker that we both like and it's not breaking the bank we will buy one. As of now we are just waiting for little Riley to come.

8 Months

Wow how time flies! Here I am at 8 months along ( 32 weeks 1 day) I now feel very pregnant. The littlest things I do make me very tired. Pretty much everyday my hips and back hurt, I cant wait until Riley makes her appearance. I defiantly waddle around now and getting out of bed is beginning to be a chore.
Tuesday March 17th Adam and I get to tour the labor and delivery at Riverside with our birth class. I am very excited to see the rooms and get the lowdown on what will be going on when I am there. Our next doctors appointment in on Wednesday March 18th.

8th appointment

30 weeks 5 days
Went to our 8th doctors appointment yesterday and everything went great. I only gained 3 pounds this month which is very good for me considering that last month I gained 7!! I'm guessing that my body is leveling out or at least I'm hoping so. Usually at this stage in the pregnancy women are gaining the most weight. I guess we will have to wait until my next appointment which is on March 18th to see. From now on I will be going to see the doctor every 2 weeks. Wow has time flown by.
Also, this week we started our birthing classes. They are ever Tuesday in March for 2 1/2 hours at each session. The first class I think went very well. It's nice to be in a group of people that all are in the same boat with us. We all have no idea what is going to happen to our bodies or our lives after these babies arrive.
