37 week OB visit

      So I guess I should start with Tuesday (July 12) I had some issues that I thought might be connected to my water breaking. So I called my sister to talk to her about it and then I called my OB and they basically told me that I needed to go to the Hospital, not the women's clinic which is where I usually go, and get checked out just to make sure that my water had not broken....
      I got checked in and such and they had me change into a gown and belly band and give them a pee sample... After lying down on the bed  she put a thingy to monitor Liam's heart beat and I will say that it took her a good 5 minutes to get his heart beat to show up due to the fact that this boy is a wiggler!! 
      After that she did a little swabbing to test for the Amniotic fluid and then she checked to see if I was effaced/dilated... I think that that is the worst part for me cause its difficult for me to relax at all with all that pressure and such! She then said that she could not really tell how effaced/dilated I was because his head was basically in the way... I thought that that meant that he was coming but she just said that usually there would be room to feel around the head to feel the cervix but I guess that Liam had a MASSIVE HEAD!!
       After being checked and such the loving nurse told us that we'd have to wait for the results of the swab.... came back that my water had not broken but the stuff that I thought was my mucous plug was indeed a good chunk of my plug (meaning he is coming soon :D) and that I would still be loosing some since it can regenerate. Then she tells us that we need to stay for about 20 minutes so that she can get a good heart beat reading on Liam due to the fact that the WHOLE TIME we were there he NEVER STOPPED MOVING which meant every time that he would move it would not show on the monitor. DARN CHILD.... I LOVE him though!!
      I will say this about my Husband he doesn't like all that icky stuff of getting checked and such. So when she was checking me I thought it weird that he actually scooted the rocking chair closer to my head... I thought that it was because he could see what she was doing! He later informed me that he did it "To be nice" What a silly boy!! I love him but I don't get why this baby stuff makes him all icked out... he goes to babies being born all the time....
      So today I had my OB appointment and it was my first time with Doctor Shumate.... Not what I thought!! He was extremely nice and when Charlie said earrings I thought "Oh maybe gadges?" nope its a hoop and a diamond... in both ears. He checked Liam's heart beat and said it was between 129-133... They had called earlier this morning and asked if I could come in at 12:30 instead of 1:30 and I start thinking WHY WHY WHY? As a first time mom I think that thats fairly normal to freak out when they don't say why. It was because He had had something scheduled for my appointment time... SIGH OF RELIFE!
      My first thought when they called is that they are going to tell me that I have Group Strep B... to which I would tell them to TAKE THIS BABY OUT NOW!! It seemed like everything that they had tested me for had all come back positive. Luckily I was negative for it and I was excited!! I am kinda looking forward to my next appointment on the 22nd....

Liam's Future Wife

      So one of my really good friend... Mrs. Bridgette Kehrer had her daughter about a month ago (I believe) and I haven't really gotten to see her except for in pictures... But she and I have come to the conclusion that our children SHALL MARRY EACH OTHER!! We have already arranged it... 
      Miss Madison Rae Kehrer.... we are going to be coming home (spokane) September 1-7 and Liam and Madi will go on their first date and also in their matching outfits Bridgette and I got them... We shall be there to make sure no mischief is going on and plus they don't know how to drive... but all I got to say is that she is just so FREAKING CUTE I cant handle it... :D

Liam's future wife.... Madison

Rosting on the FRONT BURNER

      So since 35 weeks I have been getting fatter... I know that my mother hates when I say that...I KNOW I'M NOT FAT and it doesn't bother me to say that! But I have realized since about 30ish weeks I have been dying of heat! I don't sleep with the covers or any cloths really but I am still always so hot!!
      4th of July Weekend my In-Laws and Ben (Charlie's youngest brother) came up and decided to do some deep sea fishing from the Charter company in Depoe Bay! I was originally going to go but I called the OB to just make sure I was able to go or not. Unfortunately they told me that I couldn't, which I had a feeling that they would tell me that. 
      Charlie, Ben and my mother-in-law all got up at about 5:45am (I did as well since I don't sleep much)to go fishing since they had to be there before 7am! My mother-in-law and Ben both ate before they took the dramamine but Charlie decided not to eat before he took his! I found out after that my mother-in-law and ben had gotten sea sick, my mother-in-law more so then Ben but Charlie thinks that they got so sick because they ate! Charlie didn't though and it was probably cause he never really eats breakfast anyway!
      The day that my In-Laws left (July 4th) we went to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, which I haven't been to in YEARS... YEARS!!! It was a 2 hour drive but SOOOOO worth it!! I have never walked around so much in all my life but at least it helps with the baby dropping more!! They recently (since I have been there)added the space portion and they even added a WATER PARK!! There is a plane on top of the building that has the water slides coming out of it and going into the building and the pools!! IT EPIC and I REALLY WANT TO GO!!
      There is a Plane in the Aviation part called the "Spruce Goose" it HUGE and totally EPIC! You can go into it but parts are sectioned off that you are not allowed to go into unless you pay for a tour....
$25 for a tour of the front of the plane and up onto the (I guess) flight deck and sit in the front, mess with the controls and such! you also get one picture (they take more then one for you to choose from)basically the $25 is for the picture
$50 (I think it said per person) for a tour of the front and back of the plane. You get everything in the $25 tour but you in addition get to go tour the back of the plane!
      So the picture of Charlie, Liam (though in the womb)and I is hanging up in the dinning room... although his parents have the one of all five of us that they are going to send us!! I will just say it was a good day I think!
      Today I got a package in the mail... Jena (Charlie's 2nd oldest sister)sent me some baby cloths for Liam! They are all super cute... oh yeah Jena is due 6 days before me and we are both having boys!! I am excited to see my new nephew... he will get to join his two crazy ADORABLE sisters and I know that he will be just as ADORABLE as them!! LOVE YOU JENA!!
      Charlie is working 8 straight nights and all I got to say is I am bored outta my mind!!
