More Audrey Updates!

There is more?!? Oh yes! After my appt. on Tuesday that evening around 8:45 I began to have contractions. They were pretty intense, but I did not want to go up to labor and delivery. I just hate being one of those people that jumps at every little thing. Although my doctor had told me to go after finding out how low Audrey was. So I endured the contractions - they weren't THAT bad. I took some tylenol and finally fell asleep around 11:45 or so, but I was definitely tossing and turning all night. When Evan got up to get ready for work at 6:00 I was still having them. I was frustrated and told him I better go up to labor and delivery. I warned him that we may be there for a while. Once we got there I got hooked up to the monitors and the contractions showed up right away. They were about 10-15 min apart. - They then did a preterm labor screening which came back negative which means that Audrey will not come in the next two weeks! Great news! I was then checked which made my contractions come even closer together. This time they were every 7 min and created little perfect hills on the screen that were evenly spaced. ha. - To stop the contractions I was given a 3 shots and a pill orally. One shot was given every 20 min in each arm with the last shot I had to take the pill. Even after all this I was still having minor contractions and was sent home on bed rest for the next two days. - The medicine they gave me is terrible! It makes my heart race and gives me the jitters. - I started taking only 1/2 a pill every 4 hours and then I quit taking it. I haven't had any more contractions so we'll see. I'm hoping I can just take it easy and not have to take any more medicine. :)

Audrey is at station -2 and I am a tiny bit effaced. I pray everything can hold off till I reach full term.

Audrey Update!

Today was my 33 week visit and I am now going to the doctor every two weeks, soon it will be only one week. Well, these past two weeks I have been feeling a lot of pressure/cramping and figured I should tell the doctor. Since it is my first pregnancy I never know what is a big deal and what is just normal. But now I am so glad I mentioned my feelings to the doctor because after being checked she discovered that Audrey's head is lower than normal. She said this is fairly common but is definitely something to keep an eye on. Instead of going back at week 35, I am will be going every week from now on to be checked. I am hoping she will stay put for the next few weeks or so! :) Otherwise, everything is great, which is wonderful to hear!

Audrey's Nursery!!

Here are the latest pictures of the nursery. There is still final touches that need to be made such as decor on the wall and the upholstered glider, but it is definitely coming together! I absolutely love her room and have moved a chair in there for the time being to sit and take it all in. It is my favorite place to be!

This is the view from the door
This is the corner where the chair will go!

A better look at the chandeliers!This is my secret knob that Evan put in to dim the chandelier lights! He has worked so hard on this nursery!

This picture does not do this branch justice. It definitely adds something to the room and is such a unique piece. I have decorated it with ornaments, some being sentimental.

Remember the table? I decorated the edges and am possibly going to paint an "A" on it, we'll see!

I love how this shade turned out! Sandra's idea of course!

Wall decor that is hopefully going up today!!
