Six Weeks To Go!!!

August 7th, 2008

Welcome back.  Today is Thursday, August 7, and we only have six more weeks to go.  I suspect that those weeks will fly by and then we’ll have a brand new bouncing baby boy.  We’re super excited.

Also in recent news, my sister Makaela just had her baby, Brady Patrick, and he’s super cute.  And my sister-in-law Shari is also pregnant, due around Valentine’s Day 2009.  And my other sister Lori just had a baby girl in the last year.  Lots of babies in our family will make the cousins all near the same age, which we think will be a whole lot of fun in the coming years.

Crisi is doing well for the most part.  She’s having contractions (the Braxton-Hicks “fake” contractions) more often now.  Today it happened seven times.  Her stomach becomes rock hard and it looks extremely uncomfortable.  She just waits for it to pass and then keeps on trucking.  Other than that, the Jellybean seems to be constantly moving around inside her belly, trying to find a comfortable spot to settle into.

She has done a fantastic job sticking to her new diet and is keeping the gestational diabetes under control.  That’s great because it means we won’t have to do the insulin.  Lord knows I didn’t want to stick her with a needle, and I know she wants to do it less than I do.

Here’s a quick video that shows some of the highlights from the 4D Ultrasound that we had a few weeks ago.  It also shows the baby’s belly with hiccups from another recent ultrasound.  And then there’s a couple of pictures of us preparing the room and furniture for the Jellybean.

We hope you are all doing well.

    Hey, what a great video. I think Josh is going to look at that some later day in his life and think that was really cool.

    Crisi – I hope you will be able to tell the difference between the real contractions versus the fake ones so that you don’t have a 45 minute Makaela special at the hospital!

    Hi Crisi and Travis,
    Wow — what a fantastic video of little Josh. He looks like a full-grown little guy now. Not much longer until your little bundle of joy arrives! We will be anxious to hold our two new grandsons soon!
    Love, Susy

    I really try not to read too much of these “blogs” because then I learn all sorts of scary pregnancy stuff. Like gestational diabetes. Next thing you know I’ll be learning about frequent UTIs. AAAAAAAHHHHHH! Regardless, 4D is pretty cool. It’s weird how you practically have a little alien in your belly. What’s that like, huh? Alien carrier!!
