false alarm

So yesterday I woke got out of bed around 9 with horrible back and belly pains. Tyler and I wanted to tidy up our house so we were getting some cleaning done. Don't worry, Tyler does all the lifting and big stuff, I fold laundry and rinse dishes. Anyways my back and belly would just not stop hurting. I laid down and tried to relax many times and it just wasn't working. I literally started sweating I was in so much pain. So finally around 2 I called the doctor and told them what the problem was and they sent me to the Labor and Delivery to be monitored. Once we got in the car it only got worse, I could not sit without feeling more pain. We finally got to the hospital and then checked in... the whole process seemed like 30 min. When in reality it was like 10. Finally I got to my room and they set me up to the monitors and I told them I felt like a big wus and she said no your having contractions and they hurt. I met with the perinatologist (lol... I new his family from church but it was the first time I met him). I had the doctor come in and she checked me out and took some tests. Then they hooked me up to some fluids and eventually the pain eased. They said they wanted to see if my contractions would slow down or stop before they gave me a shot of something to stop it... well they didn't slow down so they gave me the shot and guess what my contractions still we're going. But the tests determined that I was not in labor and that all was fine so they sent me home once I felt normal again and now I'm on limited activity... which they told me before, but no more trips to the grocery store. I'm laying low and not doing much of anything.

Today we went and met our pediatrician.... so one more thing off my list. This weekend Tyler's mom LouAnn is here and she is helping Tyler get the nursery finished. I'll post pictures by the end of the weekend. YIPPI its looking so good!!!

Snow in Atlanta

On Wednesday we got about a half an inch of snow and then it melted away. Tyler was out of town and I so sad he missed it. The weather man said there was a chance of snow on Saturday but we all know that means probably not. Saturday morning I woke up to the sound of freezing rain on the window (mixed with rain) I came to the kitchen and made some breakfast and when I looked out the window again it was snowing!!! BIG FLAKES!!! We got about an inch and half. I know big whoop, but that's amazing down here.

Alright Julie just for you! 32 weeks

I'm 32 weeks and 6 days today. I don't feel like I'm changing much anymore. I haven't gained any new weight in probably 3 weeks. I'm just uncomfortable all the time. It takes a lot of energy just to flip to the other side when I'm sleeping. I'm moving a lot slower these days! I normally would have had all the bedding knocked out by now, but I have to take naps and breaks and... well yeah, I'm just moving slower.

I have a C-section scheduled for February 21st!!! Of course the doctor thinks its highly likely I'll go into labor before then, at least we know when the last possible day is until we meet them. I'm just so stinking happy!!!

Daddy put a crib together!!!

I'm so excited to have one put together. I keep laying my fabric on the crib saying "it looks so beautiful!" So we have one more to put together and a dresser, but no rush I just wanted to make sure my bedding was going to fit before I finished it off.

Baby things to share

This is my nursery fabric. I'm doing the outside of the bumper in the polka dot print, the sheets and changing table cover is in the squares with the brown dots, the quilt is the circle print with a boarder of the stripes. I'm gonna do the inside of the bumper in a white minkey and the crib skirt is mainly pink, then a stripe of brown then about 6 inches of the circle print... hopefully it comes out looking as good as I imagine.

I'm in love with this line of baby items. Its called his gem ( this is the blanket it says his little lamb. I got two onsies and 2 bibs with the same thing on it. On the back they says The LORD is my Shepherd... Psalm 23. I also got a bath towel with the lamb on it and it says wash me and I will be whiter then snow. Psalm 51:7. I think the reason I'm in love with this so much is because my mom loved lambs growing up and she wrote a children's musical call "The Sheep Shed" There is something about lambs that just reminds me of growing up and what a wonderful mother I had.

30 weeks and we're back in Atlanta

Well I'm back on my computer so hopefully I'll be making a lot more posts. We were all set to be living in Dallas to be near family but unfortunately that wasn't going to work out for a little while so we're back in Atlanta. I spent about 2 months hanging out with my sister-in-law, making Christmas decorations, sewing curtains, watching trash TV and eating way too much!!! Today is my first day back and I have to say that I'm board, I miss having my little nephews to entertain me. I won't be board for long though there is a Uhal out front waiting to be unpacked hopefully this evening and inside is all sorts of things to be done. I have my sewing cut out for me, I'm making both the girls crib sets and I've got 2 cribs to put together and a dresser and boxes of baby items waiting to be unpacked and organized. Once I've organized I'll take a trip to baby's r us to get the last of the items. Oh and LouAnn is planning on coming either this weekend or next weekend and she is going to help us get stuff ready, like painting the nursery.

I've got a doctors appointment on Friday that I'm looking forward to, although I'm going to seriously miss Dr. Shimmer and all the staff in McKinney, they were the best ever. But things are getting closer and I look forward to hearing their heart beats and well the big day I get to meet these two princesses.
