39 1/2 weeks

Still nothing on the baby front. No change. I'm getting a bit frustrated over here. It sucks just waiting. Everything checked out good though so I shouldn't complain but I'm ready to be done. I go back to the doctor next Tuesday and if there is still no change of even if there is change we will discuss the next step to get this kid out of my uterus!! Everyone say a little prayer that I don't make it to my next appointment.

Who Goes Fishing During Deer Hunting Season?

The steelhead are in the Kalamazoo River! I felt it was about time to get a fish blog out there again. I know you guys have been missing it.
My neighbor Ted and I decided to go out fishing last Monday morning and it actually turned out to be quite a productive morning. While driving out to the river, I couldn't help but think to myself, "why am I waking up early to go sit in the cold and go fishing when I could be out in the woods waiting for a deer". Well, it turned out to be well worth missing a morning of deer hunting. We had two poles with Hot'n'Tots on them and two poles sporting one year old steelhead spawn that I tied while trolling up the river. The first two hits were on the spawn sacks and got us excited, but we reeled them in to find that they were just catfish (exciting and fun, but not what we were hoping for). The next two hits produced the two steelhead you see in the picture. They were also on the spawn sacks. Not the biggest steelhead, but they will taste just fine. Finally, we got one more hit, this time on a Hot'N'Tot. It turned out to be a nice size smallmouth bass. All in all, in was a fun morning.

I had my doctors appointment early this week since Jimmy will be gone Thursday and Friday of this week. Again, there is nothing to report. Absolutely no change. Yippee. Looks like I'm in this for the long haul. At least I sleep great.

38 weeks

Well, no big news to report. I had another appointment this morning and there is no change other than the baby is lower. Still not dialated, still not effaced. Shucks! I've been feeling a lot more contractions this week so I thought there might be a chance I was dilated. Jimmy did do a weight check this morning and said she was weighing in at about 6lbs right now and should gain about 1/2lb a week until she makes her appearance. Lets just hope she comes soon.

Almost 37 weeks

Another doctors appointment today but unfortunately there is no big change for me to report to everyone today. Her heartbeat was a little slower this week at 137bpm instead of 150. All systems go according to Jimmy but I'm not dialated so it could be awhile yet. I'll leave you with this beautiful shot of my belly I took this morning.
