38 weeks!

So I am now 38 weeks and counting and things are going well! I went to the doctor again, however nothing has changed so I am still at a 1. So I'm guessing my body and Sophie are both gonna take their sweet time! and I'm ok with that. more time to rest. I was able to go to the gym last night and walk a mile before I started to cramp up a lot so I had to quit but let me tell ya. it felt great to get out and move around. We have been taking my last days of vacation and going to IKEA and Cabella's and the malls to just get me walking and dilating. It's been fun spending time together before its not just the two of us anymore. My friend Monica made Sophie these cute little beanies and I just love them! THANK YOU! Sophie will wear the little one at the hospital and the big one next winter. We will keep you updated! Cause it could happen any day now! but just plan on or around the 13th.... hahaha

So I went to the doctor yesterday and she said that I'm dilated to a 1 and i'm 50% ephaced. (is that how you spell it?) anyway, so it's anyday now! my blood pressure was a little high so I have to go in on Thursday to get that checked out to make sure it was just a spike and not a pattern that I'm rising everyday. SO! I'm just waiting and waiting! I did some labor at work today to hopefully help things out a bit. ahahahah but I'm just enjoying my last days with a peaceful life before Sophie comes and I don't sleep anymore. because believe it or not I am still sleeping through the night. booya! no complaints here. just getting anxious! ah! I don't want to wait anymore! BRING IT ON! but make sure it's with an epidural! hahaha

So Paula pointed out to me that the privacy settings of my comments were changed... I don't remember changing them but I guess I did and it wasn't letting anyone leave comments. but I fixed it now I think. So you should be able to now. SORRY! :) (I blame it on the baby taking my one and only good brain cell :)

So Derek knows that I want to get back into working out after the baby and that I wanna go on walks with Sophie. So for valentine's day he got me this MP3 player that is just awesome! I have no idea how to put songs or anything on it so he is doing it all for me and I'll just take it when it's ready. haaha I'm totally clueless when it comes to computer stuff like that. Thank you honey for an awesome gift! I LOVE IT!!!

Can we Please Turn off the Snow?

So I'm probably not the only one who is tired of the snow. But last night just did it for me! Derek works in eagle mountain and had to spend the night up there because the road was closed and the conditions were just too dangerous. So thanks to the snow I had to spend the night alone. well not really. Our cat stayed up all night meowing waiting for Derek to come home. He is lucky there were no loaded weapons around. After I kicked the annoying cat out I got some sleep but it made me realize how much it SUCKS to sleep alone. so I wanna say... HONEY I LOVE YOU AND LOVE WAKING UP NEXT TO YOU EVERY MORNING!!!! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! but hey, at least he got to sleep at his sisters and have a warm meal so thank you to the Lewis family for letting Derek crash at your house. and at least I didn't go into labor last night right?! haha lets be positive here. LOVE YOU DEREK!

Ok. So I have to get packed for the hopital this weekend because I'll be 37 weeks and aparently the family tradition is to go two weeks or so early (since 8 out of 10 babies that "former Duris girls" have had, are that early) so JUST IN CASE (believe me, I'm not PLANNING on going early) I need to get stuff ready for the hospital. I don't really know what to bring. well I do but I want to get some insight or ideas from moms and see what you guys took that saved your life while there. what I SHOULD and SHOUDLN'T bring. I'm only planning on staying as long as they make me. I don't wanna be there longer... poor derek has to sleep on a "recliner chair bed". HELP ME! babies

Jace was feeling a little left out and since there is so much change going on he decided to run for apostle. hahahaah the things people do with spare time when they are making signs... GO JACE! I'll vote for you! maybe not for apostle but for janitor or something! hahahahah

It's getting there!

Have I Dropped?

what do you mothers think? the first Picture is 31 weeks, the second one (in the black shirt) is 35 weeks.


I can't believe that at the end of this month my pregnancy will be pretty much over. I'm thankful its been an easy ride and I hope it continues like this with all the other pregnancies I'll have. Even though I feel like a truck it's so fun being pregnant! I probably say that cause I can still sleep through the night when I don't have heartburn. I feel a lot more pressure down below so I think she is dropping a bit.
