Beautiful Florida Weather!!!

Okay the weather the last several days has just been wonderful. We've had the windows open and have been spending most of our time either on the lanai or outside. Lily loves. loves, loves this. After lunch on Thursday we took Lily over to the park to play for a little while. Here are some pics from our little outing.

32 Weeks!!! A Date has been set!!!

I am 32 weeks today and I had my Dr.'s appt. this afternoon. Everything is looking good. We found out the date for Emma's Arrival! My c-section is scheduled for April 7th at 9am. It is exciting to know the date. Only 49 days left!!! Everything checked out good w/ me today too. My BP was 96/58 and Emma's heartrate was in the 140's and 150's. My stomach measured 32cm. I'm getting very excited as it is getting closer and closer. I can't wait to meet her! My next appt will be in 2 weeks, March 3, 2011.

Emma's Bedding

Emma's bedding came in a few days ago. Last night we bought her mattress and today I got her bed set up. It looks great with the green on the walls.

Lily's Manicure and Pedicure :-)

Yesterday I painted Lily's fingernails and toenails for the first time, with some Piggy Paint (polish for little ones). She was very excited about it and sat so still while I did it and then let it dry. She couldn't wait to show it off to her Daddy.

30 Weeks!!!!

Yay!!! I've made it to 30 weeks. I had my Dr.'s appt today, and it went great! I got my results back from my 3 hr glucose test and they were good. I passed!!! My blood pressure was good 112/64 and I only gained 1 lb this past month, so that is great since a couple of months back when the baby was in a growth spurt I gained more than I had anticipated. Emma's heart rate was a healthy 147 beats per minute. They are setting up my C-section date, so when I go back in 2 weeks I should know the date we will be having Emma! It is getting so close now.

For about a month now I've noticed the veins in my legs have gotten really bad, especially my right leg. The front and back of it looks really bad and in the past week they are have started getting painful. Behind my knee of that leg I think I am developing a varicose vain. So, I may start wearing support hose for part of the time to help w/ that. I can definitely tell that this pregnancy has been tougher on my body. I think part of it is having a 2 year to take care of. I am up on my feet way to much. Some days I feel like I barely sit down and it is catching up w/ me. Now that I am close to end, my back is hurting some and of course my legs w/ the vein damage. The last few days I've been trying to make an effort to make sure I sit and put my feet up when possible.

My next appt is February 17th. I also have a routine ultrasound scheduled for March 9th where they will check and get an estimate on how big Emma is.

Update on Lily's Sleeping Situation

Just wanted to do a little update. Since Lily has been sleeping in her "big girl" bed she was done great at night. She's excited that she can climb into her own bed. Then I will read her a story, and we say our good nights. It's so cute and sweet! Her nap times have been a little rockier. Some days she would just play in her room the entire time (we have the door gated so she can't get out), the first few days she made a big mess in her room. Taking out clothes and hairbows and diapers and anything she could get her hands on. But after a few times of explaining to her that she needs to leave all that stuff alone she has gotten much better and doesn't seem to mess w/ it any more. The last few days she has been napping each day. So, she seems to be getting used to it and I am so happy about that! She keeps collecting new things she wants to put in her bed to sleep with. She has so many blankets in there now. She definitely likes being all snuggly. But as long as she is safe I don't mind.
