Dr appointments, drive in's and car seats

Well, Thursday morning I had a DR appointment. It went well, i was told my weight is great (woo hoo! last time she told be to be careful cuz I was gaining too fast...). I was also told I drink too much water and I need to eat more salt- i've never heard a dr say that in my entire life. Come to find out people can actually get addicted to water... she said I need to just eat more salt for now and when I get done breast feeding then I need to not drink so much. I drank 78 ounces of water that morning before my appointment (my appointment was at 11:30am and I woke up at 6:15...) Anyway, I was also told i'm measuring 3cm bigger than I should be so in two weeks when I go back we get to have an ultra sound!!! The dr wants to see just how big Lexi is because at this point the dr is thinking they will have to induce me a couple weeks early. I'm still debating how I feel about being induced. I do not mind her coming early but I don't want to deal with the side effects of inducement. We've been going to child birth classes which I'm very excited about, I thought I knew a lot about giving birth and stuff, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to take them but i figured- what the heck, they're free why not? It's not like I'm going to get stupider by going right?!
Last night Eugene and I went on a date, even though there is still7 weeks before Lexi's due date, we figured we might as well just get it in just in case... Anyway, we went to a drive in! I'd never been to one. It was kinda fun and kinda frustrating at the same time. we got there at 7:45 and the movie didn't even start until 9. we spent about 45 minutes before the movie started getting the car comfortable (we have a hatch back), then right before the movie started I was looking at the sky and said "this reminds me of that part of Twister when the tornado rips through the drive in...." about three minutes into the movie the wind starts picking up real bad, the sky is a nasty color and it started raining and flashes of lightning filled the sky.... We could hear tree branches falling all around the place and the power kept flickering which was getting quite annoying because we were trying to watch Superman. Turns out you can miss the begining of superman and not lose any important information. Anyway, we ended up turning the car around and watching the movie through the windshield wipers. Well, being 33 weeks pregnant and sitting in a car for two hours is not the most comfrotable thing. I was quite miserable. Anyway, Superman wasn't all that good, but they play two movies so we got to see Click too. Click would have been a lot better without the usual perverted Adam Sandler usual comments and Scenes. It stopped raining so we got to open the windows to the car and it made it a little more enjoyable. But I still don't recommend sitting in a car from 9pm until 2:15am when you're pregnant. it's not that fun. I kinda felt like she was just going to come out from all the pressure she was putting on me!
We also got to get Lexi's stroller and car seat out of layaway yesterday! that was fun, it's exciting to have something big for her. We haven't quite figured out the car seat straps and head support thingy, but hopefully someone we know can help us with that. things are just too complicated. we also bought a shelf and two cute hooks (one's a butterfly and one's a flower) for her room! My mom has been working hard on her bedding and she showed me pictures it's looking VERY nice. I'm excited. :) Lexi's room might actually be ready for her when she comes out!
Next weekend is going to be VERY fun, and I'm so excited. My sister in law and niece are going to be staying with me from Friday until Sunday(our husband's are going to Promise Keepers). Then Sunday Beth, Josh and Olivia will be coming to visit!!! YAY! I haven't seen Beth since her wedding... cuz I'm a bad friend. But I'm thrilled! Livi is going to be sleeping in Lexi's crib so we lowered it for her and I'm washing the sheet. How exciting! I'm even going to call in sick on friday... YAY Company!!!
well, I guess that's all the excitement for now. I'll keep ya posted on the baby thing.

Scary picture

I was going to show you a good picture of me from saturday, but it turns out that all the pictures are still on the memory card which of course is in the camera. Where is the camera you ask? Well of course it's with Eugene in Florida- where else?!
So anyway, you're stuck looking at this scary fat picture of me very pregnant. I think I have a buddah belly.

I guess a month is a long time to go without posting anything huh?

Well, unfortunately there is nothing exciting going on in Jes Land. Eugene is away at Daytona Beach, FL with the youth group- they're at camp. I'm stuck here cuz of my stinky job, but I guess that's ok, someone has to make some money to pay the bills right? Lexi time is getting closer, we now have 8.5 weeks until her due date- that doesn't necessarily mean we have 8.5 weeks until we get here, we could have 6, we could have 10... who knows. Either way I'm getting rather anxious and nervous and excited and and and....

My biggest worry right now is the actual labor process. Atleast that's what I think is the biggest worry.

The thought that consumes my mind the most is the fact that I do not want to work after I have her and I just don't know how we are going to work that detail out. That's one that I am trying to let God work out, but I think about it all the time.

And my biggest excitment is just knowing that I'm going to be a mommy! (scary and exciting at the same time). Soon this girl that pokes and pushes and kicks my ribs is going to come out and I'm going to be able to hold her in my arms! and change her poopy diapers too. :)

Being pregnant is a weird feeling, not just the always growing and stretching stomach, but the weird movements, the feeling of having your body part moving from the inside and you have no control over it. It's simply weird. Knowing that there is a tiny human being in me is simply amazing though. God is awesome the way he designed our bodies. Then there is the completely irrational hormonal mood swings that make you cry over the stupidest things and laugh over things that you should be crying over. I'm just glad I have a supportive husband who even though he doesn't understand why I'm crying while watching Ed, Edd and Eddy, he still loves me and shows concern (before laughing at me of course.)

Well, I guess I might try to go to sleep now, I'm kinda tired. Hope you're doing well!!!
