We've Moved!

Monday we officially moved out of our house. We are still living with my parents until the end of August when our new place will be ready for us! I'm excited to get into a nice, new place that'll be safe for baby Talmage. Just hopefully he'll come after we've moved. This past week has been crazy and definately tiring!!

I kind of put my bedrest on hold. Oops! But now I'm back on bedrest. And I've been having a fever the last two days. So we're hoping that the contractions won't come back with the fever. I just feel bad for Talmage. He gets stressed when I get a fever and his heart rate goes up.

Crazy week!

Well this week has been crazy! I thought I should tell everyone just to update.

On Wednesday, I started contracting at 11:00 am and didn't stop. It just got worse and worse throughout the day. It got so painful that I could hardly breathe. I stayed on the couch all day. Finally my mom told me I needed to go to the hospital. So I waited for Jacob to come home from work at 6:00pm. Then I started to feel much better...I DID NOT want to go the hospital. Anyways, we ended up going to my parents house to eat dinner since I didn't feel good enough to cook.

Then the contractions came worse and in my back. It was the worse pain I have ever felt in my life! So we headed off to the emergency room where they took me up to the maternity floor to look at me. Little did I know...I was contracting every 2 minutes!!! Crazy! And then they checked me and I was already dilated to a 1 and 50% effaced. So I had to spend the night and didn't get home until 10:00pm Thursday night.

They were giving me IVs, drawing my blood a million times and giving me shots of tribulene to stop the contractions. They put a monitor on me to monitor the contractions and one to monitor the baby's heartbeat. For awhile, his heartbeat was in the 180's! Scary! So anyway, I'm now on bedrest and can't drive, cook, clean or go to the store. I also am sick with the flu at the same time. It stinks. So we just moved in with my parents for now until I get off bedrest or have the baby.

I'm still having contractions every day so it is not fun! they are definately painful! I just hope they don't get too bad because I do not want to go back! And I'm going to the doctor at least once a week now. I just hope I can hold him in for at least a few more weeks!!

32 weeks 3 days BELLY PHOTO!

After many requests, I finally took a belly picture! I've been swelling a lot!! My arms face, legs, feet...everything! But I broke down and took a picture anyway! I just don't feel as "pretty" when I'm huge!

Well today was my OBGYN appointment and my glucose test. I was supposed to take the test at 28 weeks but it didn't work out. So here's a picture of an empty orange glucose drink. Yummy! It tasted ok but made me feel sick all day! Talmage sure liked it though! He kept moving around and it took them awhile to find his heartbeat.

Happy 24th Birthday Jacob!

Tomorrow (JULY 3rd) is Jacob's 24th birthday! He is so old! Jacob is the most amazing man, husband and soon-to-be father. He loves his family more than anything. Jacob loves to laugh and have fun. I've never met someone who hasn't loved Jacob. He is so kind and sensitive. And he is every kid's dream come true...always playing and wrestling with his nephews and nieces. I can't wait to see him as a DAD! I feel so lucky and privileged to be married to such a wonderful man. I look up to him so much! He's such a hard worker and would do anything to make sure his family is supported. Jacob is also one of the smartest people ever! He always has the right answer! And he has a way of talking to people. And if you know Jacob, he's a people person, always brightening others' days! He's pretty much the closest thing you can get to perfect! I love him so much and couldn't have asked for a better husband!
