Ten things that made me happy this week

1 Getting to go for 2 nice walks with my hubbs!
2 Getting to go on a girly date with my bestest.
3 Going to Charming Charlie.
4 Ordering baby boys vinyl for his room.( Mama called the doctor and the doctor said.... No more Hunter's jumping on the bed) How cute!
5 Feeling the loving support of my hubbs.
6 Setting baby boys last picture as my backround.
7 watching a million episodes of Mystery Diagnosis! Love!
8 Getting a cherry limeaid from Sonic.
9 Getting to hear baby boy's heart beat! And that he is going to be a big healthy boy.
10 Practicing lullaby's I am going to sing to baby boy.

SO this week as I am sure most of know I found out baby boy is way to big for me to give birth to naturally. SO I will be having a c section in like 2 weeks. I will know the exact date and time on Friday or by Friday. And these past 2 days have been very hard. It is very sad to me that so many people had such negative things to say about me having a c section. This was in no way was an easy decision for me to make. I was crushed knowing that I could not do what my body was meant to do. But the spirit was with me at that appointment and helped me feel peace. And to know that I need to trust in what my doctor was telling me. This is in NO way how I planned on bringing my baby into the world. I have been mentally and emotional trying to prepare myself from the moment I found I was pregnant for giving birth naturally. But the spirit over and over reminds me that I am doing what is best for the health of me and baby boy. This is the safest route in my position. And really I have the support of my Hubbs and my parents and those who really care. It proves to me those who care based on the reactions I got. And all I have to say is if you have nothing supportive to say please keep your comments to yourself. I know my recovery will be hard, but I know the Lord is watching over me. I know it everytime I feel baby boy kick. Everytime I think of the next few weeks the spirit brings such peace rushing in. I know I could not be as ok as I am right now without my Heavenly Father.

BIG boy!!

SO today I went to an ultrasound. It was cool because they did mostly 3D. So I got to see his cute face and hair! Boy has a lot of hair already! Guess everyone was right about the heartburn thing! So atleast there is a reward for all the heartburn I have been going through!

Look at his hair and cute chubby cheeks!!

So at the ultrasound the tech said he weighs 7 Lbs 9 Oz! And that I am measuring 2 weeks early! SO we will see what happens. Apparently The Phillips family has big babies. So says my Sister-in-law!

So lots is going on!

Today at my doctors appointment I found out that I am effaced. Yay!! Not sure exactly how much but she said that I am getting close. Also when she was doing the measurement of my stomach she was surprised by how big I was measuring. She said I was measuring a lot bigger then I should be. So........on thursday I get to go in for an ultrasound. Which will make the wait a little easier. Any chance I get to see him is exciting. Lets just hope everything goes good, lets hope he is a good size and ready to be here soon!

So I also dyed my hair brown. I really like it. Its a bit dark but I enjoy having hair that is all one color again.

I have decided that with lots of emotional stress I have been going through I am going to do something one of my friends does on her blog. Every week usually on wednesday she does 10 things that made her happy the past week. SO I am going to start doing it! I think it will help me stay positive.

Ten things that made me happy this week:
1 Getting the rest of the main things we need for Hunter.
2 Getting an adorable sweater for $15. Did I mention that it originally cost $60?
3 Finding out I get to see my baby boy this week.
4 Getting skillet queso at Chillis.

Maternity Pictures!!!

We are at that point where the belly is huge and in a matter of a couple weeks we could be parents!!! I am so excited. But sure anxious as well. Here all the pictures for all you lovely people out there!

This one is by far my favorite!! And honestly I am not sure why.

My friend and I are due a day apart! SO how cute is this?!?!

As you can tell we are very excited about this little guy!!!
My handsome husband has been my rock through all of this. He has put up with so many doctors visits, sick days, cravings, scares, bed rest, blood tests, and crazy mood swings. And through all of it he has been so supportive. He knows just how to make me laugh, and help get my mind off of everything. I know that he is going to be an amazing father. And I cant wait to see the look on his face and tears in his eyes when he gets to hold Hunter for the first time.
