Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

Countdown has begun!!!

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has sped by! I have just over 10 weeks left until Maddie is here. Can you believe that?!?! I certainly can't! Hubby has started counting down and we have 74 more days. That sounds even closer than 10 weeks. I have so much done already, but now I keep thinking of everything that I still need to do. It is a bit overwhelming at times. I have an iPhone (which I love, love, love) with a calendar on it. Just to look at it scares me!!! There is a dot on almost every day reminding me that I have something to do that day.

Each summer I get a season ticket (with friends) to an outdoor theater. This year the line up looks fantastic and I can't wait till next week wen it starts. But now I think of all of the things that I need to do and almost wonder if I have the time to go this year. But I will make time as this will most likely be my last year to go and I want to enjoy it while I can. And besides, I already paid for the ticket! This yer they will be doing Titanic!! I am really stoked about that one!!! What I am not looking forward to is the heat! And standing in long lines for the bathroom. Yuck! But I can do it!!

We are getting ready to go out of town to visit family next week. It will be a 10 hour trip. Okay, who am I kidding?? As much as I have to pee it will be more like a 12 hour trip!! I am a little scared to be so far away from my OB, but I will be seeing him 2 days before I go to make sure that all is well. And yesterday I had a FFN test done to check if I would be going into labor within the next 2 weeks (I was cramping and my back was hurting). That came back fine so I am feeling a little better about traveling. If the OB gives me the go ahead we will be leaving next Thursday!

  6. Make sure you get out of the car and walk around frequently too. When you make your pit stops, walk around for a few minutes. I hope you have a great time!
