36 Weeks!

Baby baby baby baby baby.
We are having a baby! This month. Oh my.
I can't even handle the anticipation, but i'm also

Colton works ALL THE TIME. Which basically leaves me to fend for myself and watch netflix in the day. I am so grateful to be able to stay home and keep my feet up and rest. I can barely drive my car because my stomach is so close to the steering wheel, so I don't go anywhere, really.

I am also Thankful for my beautiful desk that my good friend Laura gave me so I can sit somewhere and do bills now! Hooray! Now all we need is bar stools and a dresser and we will be officially ready for our babe and all the guests that come to see him :)

We had our 36 week appointment today. Baby is head down. Around 7 pounds. I'm not dialated yet, but it could come any day. Doctor told us that we are most likely going to be looking at a C-Section. :( No Bueno. Baby is too big, he has a big head, mom is small, she's had major hip surgeries. You do the math...

I am terrified of the C-Section. I've had lots of surgeries. I have PLENTY of scars, more than my fair share. So why oh why do I need one more.. But I will do whatever is safest for my Tai. Even if it is a lot more recovery.

We are excited about all the adventures this new year will bring to us. 2012, be kind to me.


  1. Mary I am so excited for you! I had no idea you were expecting! Who cares what other people say or "expected" of your life. You are going to be a great mother and it sounds like you got a really good man to be a good husband to you and a father to your little boy! Boys are so much fun! You are going to love being a mother! I'll be anxious to hear how things go and to see the little man! Good luck with everything! I live in Richfield now, and we will probably be going to Cedar a few I'll have to come meet him! Sure love ya!

  2. C-sections aren't as horrible as they can sound. I've had two and the only crappy part is the first week or so when coughing, laughing, or anything to do with your stomach muscles, hurts. It leaves a small, clean scar but in the end, it's not so bad. Don't let anyone scare you ;)

    Congrats by the way! Little boys are the absolute best :]
