37 Weeks: Pregnancy UPDATE

You know in the last week I have had more people/strangers approach me and ask me when I am due.  Most of the people will say something funny like "due at what 6pm tonight"  or "due yesterday"  "I bet you are due any day now."  Strange thing is I am not due till March 28th.  Last night at Olive Garden I had so many people do a double take when they saw me.  I'm not sure if it was me being sensitive but I felt like all eyes on me.  Not a good or a bad thing just noticed it.  Maybe it was the dress I was wearing... my pastor did  say to me when I wore it a few weeks ago "the 70's are calling and they want their dress back."  LOL it is a very comfortable dress and I love not having to wear jeans... leggings = more comfort!  :) 

So what did the Doctor say today?
We did not check if I was dilated or effaced today but she said we could next week if I don't have baby before then.  Baby's heartbeat was 139!  I did not gain any weight this last week so that is nice to hear!  Doc said my sugar in my urine was a bit elevated today but I think I will blame that on the raspberry lemonade I had at the Olive Garden, and the 2 glasses of apple juice I had yesterday.  (I also ate some of the robin eggs... Easter candy.)  So she advised me to be more careful with my food choices!  She said I am all in the clear to have the baby any day with no worries.  She said full term is considered 38 weeks but 37 is safe and normal.  :)  Have I mentioned that I am ready??  Doctor also told me that she wanted my contractions to be 5 minutes apart for at least an hour before I go to the hospital.  This is new to me because with my daughter my water broke and that was obvious a time to head to the hospital.  Not sure if I want the same experience where my water breaks or if i do the whole contraction timing!  All morning yesterday it was consistent with 20 minutes apart but after I woke from my nap they were gone.

Hi I'm a new follower from MFM. With my daughter my water broke and I never got contractions. They didn't wait more that 24 hours after that though and had an emergency c-section. She was 10 days early. I will keep you in my prayers.

Yeah! Seems like the baby is sitting high. I think that may be why people are staring.

You go girl!

You think I'm carrying high?? I think I carried my daughter higher as I felt more discomfort in my rib cage with her. Some people think I have dropped but I am not convinced yet either.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
