Things are going good at my house. I am still the same. I am now 36 weeks.
I am hoping to make it another couple of weeks. Here is why...
First: At the end I start to get a little nervous of what is to come. I am so ready to not be pregnant but I am going to have a huge adjustment having a baby around again.
Second: My husband still has football. Lone Peak is doing so good. They play this Thursday up at the U of U stadium and if they win that game then they will play in the State Championship Game the week after. It is so so exciting and would be so fun if they make it to the Championship game. But it is keeping him busy and with all these tests and going to the hospital Jared has not been able to go with me at all. It would just be easier if I had the baby after the season is over. As long as they don't start me on a Thurs or Friday we should be ok though.
Third: I want my baby to get as big as she can. I always have little ones. Any weight that she can gain is good.
and finally Fourth: I would love to make it past Thanksgiving. We go to Jared's mom's house this year and there are always a million little kids. It would be hard to go with a newborn. I would probably be a nervous wreck the whole time.
So I am still pregnant and still trying to take is easy but it is getting really old. I have to remember that it is all worth it in the end.
Oh and Payton is in a fashion show on Wednesday night up in Salt Lake and she is so excited. I would be sad if I could not go with her. I will post pictures after. SOOOOOOO Cute!

I am at home. I have to go to the hospital twice a week for a non-stress test and then my doctor appointments once a week. I am supposed to be taking is easy. On top of it all I am having contractions. It should make for a fun couple of weeks. Ha Ha!
But the good news is that my baby looks good. She is 5lbs 2oz (which is a good size baby for me). My biggest is Jaxson who was 6lbs then Ike was 4lbs and Payton was 5lb something. I am now 35 weeks along. So hopefully she can get a little bigger. I would love a bigger baby.

Yesterday I had to go to the hospital for a non-stress test. From that test they found out that my blood pressure is high. So I had to go do some more blood work and tests and I have had to do a 24 hour urine test. Has anyone done this? At least they let me bring it home to do cause they were going to make me stay in the hospital over night to do it. I have had to save my urine since last night so I can take it back into the lab so they can test it. YUCK! I made Jared put a cooler in my bathroom with ice in it cause there was no way I was going to put it in my fridge.
I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow for another non-stress test and for a sonogram and to go over all the results of the tests that they did. They are testing me for pre-eclampsia.
I have never had high blood pressure before and can not believe how miserable it makes you feel. I hope that it does not last too long.
I will post more after tomorrow and know more.
I do not like to stay in the hospital so I am hoping that I do not have to stay there.

My husband has kept everything he ever had from playing football. So when Jaxson needed a jersey to wear over his pads for practices, Jared was more than thrilled to bring out his old Colts jersey from his little league days. I adore how much Jared loves this sport. He did not want Jaxson to play until 7th grade but you should see how excited he gets about it. I hope that Jaxson learns to love the sport just like his Dad!

Ever since I was pregnant with Jaxson Jared said that we would have 2 boys then a girl...and then a boy. Since he has always been right we kind of assumed this one was going to be a boy. NOPE! Jared was wrong...WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER GIRL! 2 Boys and 2 Girls. I am really glad that Payton will have a sister.
But I have no Girls names picked out at all. Any suggestions?

So by the pictures you can tell what we did in St George...a lot of laying at the pool. It was so hot down there last week that the pool was the only thing that felt good. Enjoy cause these will probably be the last pictures you see of me...I hate pregnant pictures.
Jared's football game did not start until 7pm and I still felt like I was going to die of heat. By about 9pm it finally felt good. They played the St George Blitz. They lost and it was not fun. This is the first time in a long time that they have not made it to the Championship game. I think that they were sad...but I am so happy that it is over too. Baseball for the boys is done and Football for Jared is done. YEAH! Except next week he goes to football camp with the high school and will be gone. I swear when I married him I knew he loved sports but I had no idea that I would still be watching him play football 10 years later. He has had two blown knee's and now he needs shoulder surgery...he was just waiting for his season the be over with. I keep telling him that it is time to retire. I thought this year would be it but now that they lost they are all talking about playing next year. Ughhhhh. Oh well at least he is doing something that he loves.
Jaxson's Allstar tournament was in Kearns. It went pretty well. They won their first two games against PG and then we played Kearns for the Championship. We lost the first game so they had to play a double header and we lost the second game. It was really sad. Jaxson is really sad that baseball is over. He loved this year and had so much fun! He is going to play tackle football this year so I am really glad for a break for about a month. Jared's rule was that they could not play tackle until 7th grade but we have talked him into 5th grade. I was hoping that Jared would be able to help coach him but it looks like he is going to be coaching at Lone Peak High School so I don't think he will have to much time to help. Oh well. It is going to be a busy fall so I am going to enjoy the rest of summer.
Here are just a few cute pictures from the games.
