Stroller test drive

Babys first Christmas! (kindof) He certainly got enough presents to warrant a 1st Christmas status....high chair, play mat, a few clothes, a book, blanket etc...
I've been feeling alright. Definitely begining to get to the uncomfortable stage. Peeing all the time, very very full after eating, weird pains now and again, extremely hot at night - but other than that I'm doin good ;)
Very strange to think in less than 5 weeks we'll have a baby in our hands.

After hearing the doctors say that baby, if born in New London (Lawerance & Memorial Hospital), might be transferred at birth to Yale if there are uncertainities or anything that their doctors aren't comfortable with- we have decided to forego that stress & just go ahead and deliver at Yale.
Another appointment today but this one is more of a check up of my vitals and the size of my ever growing belly. Probably nothing interesting. HOWEVER some interesting tid-bits of info are....
- I still have an innie - although it is extremely shallow now. Almost a no innie, no outie situation
- I find I put shoes on in the begining of the day and leave them on because it's become that uncomfortable and difficult to get down there to put them on
- Weight gain in this trimester has definitely been the big winner - total weight gain so far: just under 20lbs, 10 of that in the last trimester :o
- Had to watch Dylan get several shots at the vet last week & I CAN'T imagine watching my baby get shots.
- I got up to pee 3 times yesterday night! What the heck!!!!
- Sometimes I wake up in the morning and forget that I'm pregnant
- Just got my new car last night. Better start working on getting the carseat in -heard some of those things are like rocket science to figure out.
- One of Kevin's co-workers said "I hope everything is ok with your son" Kevin said he looked around as if saying ...son, what son - you must have the wrong person. HA! First time someone dropped to S bomb so casually. Welcome to Fatherhood my love :)

Babys first snow! AND despite my nightmares I've made it through the first big snow storm without going into labor :)
I've started buying essentials and putting together a hospital bag. I'm finding it difficult to pack for such a unknown event. humph :/ I've been asking Andrea and refrencing different online lists of "what to bring to the hospital" but I find I'll put something in and take something out - probably doesn't help that we haven't had our tour of the hospital yet so I don't even know what kind of environment we'll be in. Don't think I've even ever been to the post having baby wing of any hospital.
We have another ultrasound at Yale this afternoon and then another regular check up tomorrow. Excited for both :) Stay tuned.
Santa made a special early trip to our house and dropped a couple Little Logan gifts off under the tree...oooooOOOoo

Ride on green machine, ride on.
- The pants that I had been able to button and zip even just 2 weeks ago are near impossible to button now.
- My appetite has increase, meaning baby isn't so high that he's compressing my stomach
- My peeing activity has increased once again, meaning baby is low enough and big enough to squish my bladder
- Lastly, because it's about freggin time!! 7 weeks to go :)
My fingers have started to get puffy at night so I've been taking my wedding rings off when I sleep & Kevin seems to think that my body temperature has increased a bit. Instead of him saying that its warm some place I'm the one to mention it. We've barely turned our heat on in our house!
We finished baby Logans room - stay tuned for some pictures :)

From the outside view of the abode & view of the ocean from our driveway
The bathroom - nothing special here....but notice on the shelves in the back the bottom two have teeny tiny wash clothes and a teeny tiny bathtub :)
The living/dining area - before
The living/dining area - now
The kitchen - before.... maybe if there weren't doilies on the windows this wouldn't be my least favorite spot in the house

We basically needed to start from scratch with these doctors - which is unfortunate cause Kevin & I had found our happy ground but now find all the worries and concerns we once had are resurfacing. blah. I was offered an Amniocentesis again which we declined the first time around because of the small risk of a miscarriage. But now that I'm 32 weeks pregnant the risk of miscarriage is now a small risk for pre-term labor so we went ahead and had the procedure done. The results, which will be back in 2 weeks, will let us know if there is any chromosomal problems.
They want us to transfer the rest of our prenatal care and the birth of our baby to Yale New Haven instead of continuing with our care with our doctors here in New London. Not sure what we're going to do yet.
Appointment in New London tomorrow and another appointment at Yale in 2 weeks.
Ready for baby to be here....
