Aaron is back from harvest! They finished cutting last Friday thanks to no rain delays this summer. Now we are trying to get everything together in preparation for our new edition to our family. I luckily have continued to feel pretty good. I have noticed I am increasingly more tired and little hungrier than normal. My first introduction to leg cramps woke me up in the middle of the night with terrible cramping in my calf that seemed to last for 3 days. I am hope I do not have any more of those.
Aaron and I are attempting to get a baby registry started. I just can’t decide where it should be…target, wal-mart, babies r us. I have started a registry on Amazon. It is so hard deciding which items we want. I am really looking forward to our baby shower at the end of July; it is always so much fun to see friends and family!
Aaron and I had a doctor’s appointment on June 26th. Everything went well our doctor said that the growth looks good. Our little guy’s heart beat was 143 beats/minute. Which is a little slower than previously recorded but still within normal range. We start going to the doctor every two weeks now so our next appointment will be July 11th. Aaron will be in Orlando for the NAA (National Auctioneer Association) Conference and Show, so I guess I will have to handle this appointment on my own. With the increase in appointments and the rapid growth of my tummy it is really starting to get real. We are 66 days from our due date. My doctor told us we should be ready for anything by the beginning of August. Wow, it is coming quickly. I have been able to stay pretty calm and not get to worked up about things, however knowing that we will be holding our little baby in about two months if not sooner, well that just gets me nervous and excited!
Since Aaron was away so much in June he had not really had a chance to feel the baby kicking yet. Well on Monday night he felt the little guy kick for the first time. It was really neat to share that experience with Aaron. Our little guy continued to kick for about 20-30 minutes in the same place, I think he knew it was his Daddy and wanted to make his presence known. 🙂
We are looking forward to a busy weekend. Aaron is playing shows in Sharon and Medicine Lodge this weekend and as it turns out Sharon is celebrating its 125th Birthday so they are having some fun activities over the weekend as well. Hopefully the temperatures stay moderate, but I think it will probably be dreadfully hot. Enjoy the holiday weekend!
