EIGHT...

...POUNDS!! that's what my doctor said yesterday at my check-up. that's how big she thinks this baby is....ALREADY...and i still have a few weeks to go. she said that this baby would FOR SURE beat out amelya's birth weight of nine pounds four ounces if we would go to 'full term'. she also thinks that this baby may be close to her birth weight delivering early!! so i guess i'm preparing for a 'big' baby and probably shouldn't go out and buy tons of newborn sized diapers. with amelya we only used the pack the hospital gave us and then put her in size ones. the baby's heartrate was super high yesterday because it wouldn't stop moving either. the dr. said that's what's supposed to happen so it's all good. normally the heart rate is between 140 and 150, yesterday it was 170. she okayed me for our trip to minnesota this weekend. she said to get up every one and a half to two hours. she also had them copy my record thing from this pregnancy. JUST IN CASE. basically if i have it i won't need it, if i don't, i may. i am really praying that this baby just stays inside. if i don't deliver at a 'network' hospital, my insurance won't cover a thing. and i don't think i could handle a five hour drive home in labor, heck i'd probably have the baby on the drive home. my dr. did say DO NOT try driving home. GO to the hospital if i feel any cramping or my water breaks. but i know god is good, and i trust in him that everything will be just fine.

i've been trying to think about what to get shaun for our anniversary. for me it needed to be something nice. since we got my ring the bigger diamond and the necklace with the other diamond. http://aproudmommyof4.blogspot.com/2008/08/potty-wins-every-time.html (that's where i showed the pictures...plus it is a really funny post about my poor hubby) anyways back to the gift. we've been talking about a gps since this trip has been planned. so i thought, hey he won't think i'd get him that. so i did. i bought him a nice gps for a gift. actually over all it didn't cost too much. around 350. and then i got the case and this mounting thing, you can't suction it to your window in minnesota, and i don't need to be getting fined there. so it was a nice gift i thought. i gave it to shaun last night. and he really liked it, and didn't say you shouldn't have got that, you didn't need to get that. usually he does silly stuff like that. he really liked it and checked it all out last night. plus i figure the rest of his gift comes in the form of our (lord willing) romantic weekend away. we both need it. i think he really just needs a break from work and would go anywhere at this point.

while at best buy i also bought myself something. my all time, okay one of my all time, favorite movies...adventures in babysitting!! i was so excited. AND it only cost FIVE BUCKS!! even better. i absolutely loved that movie, and am excited to watch it again, and again, and again...because now i have it. yay!!

and because everyone else is doing it...i want to do a game too!! of course i need to have a baby guessing game...is this a vain attempt to get lots of comments...maybe...just kidding...kind of...but remember you can not be a blogger and leave a comment anymonously. just leave your name in the comment! now here's what i want you to guess: baby's weight, height, sex, and you can try and guess my due date. i'll share amelya, breigh and caitlyn's info too, so you have something to go off of. now a prize. hmmm...i'll think of something. truthfully it just may be the awesome satisfaction in winning. can NOT get better than THAT!!

Have fun on your romantic weekend.

I think you should drive home if you go into labor. Cramping and water breaking is over rated. Worse case scenario, you have the baby in the car, make the news, and everyone's good. :) But, don't listen to me; I have my babies at home!! Hee -hee.
