We went to the hospital to be induced and I mentioned that Baby Carter had moved a lot more than usual last night so they did an ultra sound to make sure he was head down. He had completely flipped and was now head in the ribs!!! They tried to turn him, but he wouldn't budge and that was the most painful experience ever!! The doctor gave me two choices, wait or have a c section now. I have never had surgery so I am scared to do the c section and I don't want to have one if there is a chance he will turn again, so now I wait until I go into labor or go in next Tuesday to be induced or have a c section if he hasn't turned. I am very disappointed, but I guess he is not ready yet!! Now I have to wait again..........

I have been having contractions for about 2 hours, every 3-5 minutes!! I don't want to get my hopes up, but maybe he will be here soon!!!! It was the same with Hayden, I didn't have any labor at all or any dilation ect...... I really want to not be pregnant!! I was going to clean the house tomorrow and will be disappointed if I have to!!! Please let this be it!! December 14th sounds wonderful for a birthday!!!
Well, no baby yet:( I had consistent contractions from about 9:00 pm to 1:00 am! They started getting uncomfortable at 12:00 and than just stopped at 1:00 am:( I never had BH with Hayden so I really thought this was it, now I am tired and disappointed, and I have to clean the house today:( I hope the contractions at least got me ready to be induced on the 22nd, I will find out on Wednesday if we can go ahead with the induction!!!

I only have two weeks left!!! I am so excited to finally have Baby Carter come home!!! Hayden asks me when we can go to the doctor to get him out, he is ready to have his mommy back!! I guess it will be a shock for him, I won't be able to spend a lot of time with him until everything is settled, but I will have to try to include him! I am still not dilated or anything, but with Hayden I didn't show any signs of labor until my water broke so it looks like it will be the same this time!! I have never had Braxton Hicks with either pregnancy so I don't really know what they feel like, maybe I have them and just don't know it? I have gone to part time at my job, it is just to hard to work 10 hours then come home and clean and do laundry and try to play with Hayden. Now I come home around 2:00 and JJ picks up Hayden at 5:00 so I get a little time to myself to rest and not have a three year old hanging on me! It has been nice, I forgot what "alone" felt like and I am loving my 3 hours of peace. That won't last long, now there will be a baby and a three year old fighting for my attention, but I will try to remember how fast Hayden grew up and savor the baby time, it is probably my last!!!

I had my 36 week appointment today and am scheduled for an induction on the 22nd of December!!! I am glad to have an end in sight, but I do hope I can go into labor on my own!!! At least he won't have to share his birthday with Christmas!!! I am not dilated or even thinning out so I'm not sure I will go early!!
I also went to Twilight this weekend and I did like it, but I was really tired and had been on my feet all day at work and then walked around all the vendors and was not feeling too good, my feet were really swollen and I was hungry!!! I need to go to it again and decide what I think about it! It was so different than the book, but I expected that......I just thought it was cheesy and looked low budget!!! The next one should be better because they will spend 10 times the money!!!!

The older I get the less exciting a birthday is!! I am 28 years old today and it is just another day, JJ is sick so we aren't doing anything, I took Hayden to a doctor appointment to get his flu shot and now I am just sitting at home!!! He did really well at the doctor though, he let them check everything and helped with the "flash light" to look in his mouth and eyes!!! He even did really well with the flu shot, just got mad at her for hurting him!!! He told me one doctor was nice but the other one hurt him and then gave him a band aid to make it better!! He didn't even cry! He just wanted a sucker and to "get outta there". So that was my big birthday!! Oh well I guess I am not a kid anymore!!!
The Thanksmas celebration was really fun and Hayden enjoyed his Maryland cousins!!! Here is my favorite nativity photo of all the grandkids!!!

I am so tired lately and my feet swell up and my legs hurt and my thumbs? hurt........last time I never got tired of being pregnant!! I worked up until I went into labor and never had any complaints. I just can't wait to not be pregnant now!! And I really don't have it too bad, just so tired and sore all the time. All I want to do is lay down all day and do nothing, but I have to work and I have a 3 year old that wants all my attention all the time!!! I feel like my whole body is swollen this time and all my joints hurt, I get numbness in feet and hands, and even my thighs and have to toss and turn all night to stop the numbness, I get charlie horses almost every night and they are getting more painful!!! I had only small swelling with my first pregnancy and that's it!! I still don't get morning sickness, but I have gained more weight and feel like I can't take a deep breath ever!!! I know I have it pretty easy, but I hate not wanting to do anything ever and if I do try to ignore everything and just do normal things I am so much more tired later!!! I have over 2 months left and I have no idea how I am gonna make it!!! If I could just relax, but I can't sleep no matter how tired I am!! Being pregnant is the most wonderful and the most annoying thing ever!!! I wouldn't give it up but I can't wait until this baby is here!!

We are so excited for Hayden's 3rd birthday!! He has been counting down for "the biggest Thomas Train birthday party ever" (his words)!! This is the first time he has got that it's his birthday and is way excited that his friends and relatives are coming to see just him!!! He helped plan the party and picked out the theme, we went to a party supply store and took our time until he found the perfect Thomas Train decorations!! I am glad the baby wasn't due before his birthday because he gets this one day just for him before he has to start sharing Mommy and Daddy and everyone else's attention!!! I just can't believe he is all ready 3, he is growing up too fast!!!
