We went to the doctor yesterday and she checked my cervix for the first time. It was not a pleasant experience, but not quite as horrid as I had imagined. I'm not at the point (and am hoping I won't be) where I just "need to get this baby out of me". It's just the earlier she comes the more time Jon will have before he has to go back to work (and the sooner I get to drink a Coke again). As of yesterday I am 37.5 weeks, 1cm dilated and 50% effaced which basically means she could come in days or weeks. Luckily she is head down and while the doctor was checking me she said, "oh, she has a lot of hair!" I was unaware you could feel a baby's hair through the amniotic sac, but hey I didn't go to medical school. I'm just hoping she's not some sort of ape baby.

I found a really cute mobile for baby no name's room. I can't wait till it gets here. They have a bunch that look very similar to the ones at Satchel's here

Macroday: Bugs in the house

This was taken on a railing outside the apartment we used to live in. However, I have had them in the house. One December we brought our christmas tree home only to discover a few days later there was a praying mantis nest in the branches! The little guys were everywhere. My mom made us run around catching and putting them outside because they were "good bugs" :o)

PhotoFriday: Noisy

Jon at the state swim meet last year. It was very noisy (and humid) inside of the aquatic center. It's crazy to think this year we'll be bringing a baby with us when we go!

Nerdy baby

So, it is an on-going joke in Jon's family that we are going to make our baby "too smart". This is probably because Jon likes to entertain himself by quizzing family members on science facts whenever we are out and about. I found this poster on etsy that is so perfect! I ordered one for the baby's room and Jon's classroom. They have a lot of other cute nerdy baby stuff too. Here's a link to the shop if you want to check it out: Nerdy Baby

So after 6 months of no posts (due mostly to the start of softball season) I'm back. A lot has changed, mainly my body and the 7 month old baby girl waiting to be born inside of it. I'm very excited! and am taking next year off from work to stay at home with her. I only have 3 weeks left of summer hours and then about a month until her due date (7/31). Here's what I look like now:
