33 weeks!

Friday, July 25, 2008

Wow, we have made it to 33 weeks. Brittany is getting bigger! Although, not too big, she still doesn't look quite as far along as she really is. Things have gone by pretty quickly for us the past several weeks. Just regular day in, day out kinds of stuff.

My yardwork has become a sort of a hobby. I really enjoy getting out, mowing the yard, working in the flower beds, and trying to make my plants and trees GROW! The pecan tree my dad gave us has sprouted from about 15 inches to almost 5 feet! The tree now comes up to my chin and it's still sprouting growth out the top! The nandinas I planted are struggling now. I'm not really sure why. They just seem to have no new growth and are the same as I planted them. And finally, they chaste tree I planted has exploded. It has nearly doubled in size. The blooms are very pretty, and fragrant too. Lots of butterflies on that one, a positive aspect I know Brittany likes.

On the downside, weeds are a constant battle. We are fortunate enough to live next to two yards that are, for the most part, kept up just enough to get by. Which means weeds grow rampant and are constantly trying to invade our yard. Don't get me wrong, the neighbors are nice, but yardwork is far down on the priority list it seems. I am spraying or pulling weeds every week. Don't tell my neighbors, but I sprayed into their grass too. I killed alot of their weeds on the side yard, but I took most of the sparse grass with it.

For those that know, my parents are moving! They want to be on some land with acreage, trees, pond, etc. And they sold their house! So now they are exploring their options, though they have to be out of their house by the end of August. I am crossing my fingers that their search leads to a house near Brittany and I. Not only could I save on gas by car pooling with my mom, but Savannah has family close by if we need them! Now if only there was a way to convince them that moving close to us, even if temporarily, was the best idea ever...

Back to Brittany and the baby...the baby is creeping up on 4 or so pounds! She's probably not quite there yet, but she's getting really close. At night, she is still really active when Brittany is sleep. It's not so much that she's kicking as much, just moving around ALOT. That's good, because that means she is running out of room! Getting bigger! If Savannah were to be born today, she would still need some form of oxygen treatment, due to the fact that her lungs are probably not completely developed. Also, her body might not be able to regulate it's temparature just yet, and would have to be in an isolette or under a warmer to help maintain her body heat. Other than that, she'd be a beautiful, yet small, baby girl!

Keep checking back, we're really going to try to keep the blog updated more frequently the closer Brittany gets to her due date. I cannot wait to be a dad!

Emotional Pregnant Freak!

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

It is official, that is exactly what I am. Since I (Brittany) am posting, I am allowed to say that;) Whether I am justified or not justified, I am truly experiencing the ups and downs of emotions that come with pregnancy. So Charlie just deal with me for a bit longer and to show for it will be a beautiful baby girl:)!

This past weekend we went to Charlie's cousin's wedding. Angie looked beautiful! Her ceremony was in Lewisville and then a fun outdoor reception at her dad's house. The power was bit tricky but I think everyone had a great time.
I went to the doctor Monday. I met one of the other doctors in the practice just in case mine is unavailable. He said I looked good and I was on track. I gained 3 more pounds. Kill me now by the way:) Oh well I am sure she will be worth it!

Pregnant women are always right!

Monday, July 07, 2008

It doesn't matter how many times you are warned, or how prepared you think you are. It doesn't matter if you are clearly in the right and she is clearly in the wrong. It doesn't matter if you've lost 50 arguements before this. None of this matters. Pregnant women are always right!

I thought I was ready, but I had no clue. Because she is holding our precious baby inside her, she deserves everything and more. I will never know what it is like to go through what she is going through. I love you, Brittany, for all you are doing for us and for our baby girl.

Baby, this one is for you. You are right! You are always right! Here are 100 apologies for the future just incase I forget to say it ;)

I love you, baby!

Thank you sweetheart! But I am not that full of myself and I am more than willing to admit that I am not always right. I will do my best to remember that and not take advantage of your post though. LOVE YOU TOO! Brittany

Brittany has gained ?? pounds!

Tuesday, July 01, 2008

Can you believe it?!?! Only ?? pounds! What's that? Oh, you can't see it? Well, shoot, let me check to see if my typing is all funked out today. No wait, that's right, I'm not sure I'm allowed to post how much weight she has gained thus far. Hah!

Yesterday, Brittany went to the OB for her glucose check, or the gestational diabetic test. We'll get the results back tomorrow or the next day. She is right on at 30 weeks, and the baby is doing great! We have graduated to going to the OB every 2 weeks from here on out. The next couple of visits, though, Brittany will be seeing some of the other OBs in our doctor's practice, just in case they will be the ones to deliver Savannah if they are on call. After that, we graduate even further to an OB visit every week! We're getting even closer to seeing our baby girl!
