I might have woken up a million times throughout the early morning hours to use the restroom
I might not have been able to fall back asleep and tossed and turned until I awoke for my next restroom trip.
I might have been woken up by my dog crying to go use the restroom.
I might have tried to go back to sleep afterward with no success.
I might have tried to watch abc shows online, only to find my computer freeze each time.
I might have cleaned my entire house, and done 5 loads of laundry.
I might have layed in the pool for a solid three hours on a float.
I might have contemplated what I am going to do with my life the next six weeks without work, all the while awaiting a baby.
I might have sat in Caleb's room and imagined my baby being here.
I might have cleaned out my disgusting car with my hubby.
I might have been really upset that one of our dogs shed, and that the fur would not completely clean up out of our car.
I might have covered the backseat with a sheet in an attempt to make it easier to clean before the baby comes.
I might have given my yorkie a bath because she decided to go swimming in a dirty pond and then roll in mud.
I might be counting down the days till my baby arrives.
I might be washing work clothes for my husband as we speak.
I might be hoping I can sleep tonight.
I might like mighty Monday's and continue this each week.
Pray for movement to improve in his right side. He will not be able to walk on his own until his right legs movement improvents.
Pray for his vocal cords to strengthen so he can further communicate. He can say a few simple words and sounds right now, but his throat muscles were damaged and have to regain strength.
Pray for him emotionally. I know that it has to be tough to be completely mentally there, but to not be able to do things you once did. I know it gets frustrating for him, and that breaks my heart.
Pray for his mom, dad, and brothers. His mommy has not left his side for one day since the accident, and her entire world is taking care of Matt right now. Pray for them all in this valley of life.

In other news I have been having pains in the lower part of my stomach. They have been occuring for the past couple of days now. A sharp shooting pain. I am wondering if these are Braxton Hicks. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? I am going to ask the doctor about it tomorrow.
I also pre-registered Nick and I for a birthing class. I almost forgot to sign up for one, until I found a pamphlet about it the other day when we were organizing more of the nursery. Nick and I are registered for a 5 week class from July 1-29.

Today, Nick and I went for our 31 week appointment. The doctor was a little concerned with my weight gain, because she says that I am not gaining enough. Until this visit the doctors had informed me that my weight gain looked good and that the baby was measuring correctly. However, today she said that I should have gained at least 5 lbs in the past couple of weeks and I have only gained 1. I began the pregnancy at 103 and now I weight 116. Total 13 lbs weight gain. She scheduled me for an ultrasound for my next visit to make sure that the baby is measuring correctly because she feels he may be measuring at 28 or 29 weeks. I have to admit that even though she told me not to worry I am. I have come so far in this pregnancy and it seems like it will be so soon when I finally get to hold my little miracle. I just do not want anything to be wrong. I am so attached and in love, and I just want my baby to be safe. The doctor asked if I was eating a lot and if I was exercising. I told her that I ate all the time, and that I waitress so walking is my only form of exercise. I am worried that if I have not gained enough in a few weeks that she may reduce my activity or even place me on bedrest. AHH I am so worried. Any mommies have any advice about how much weight they gained throughout the weeks of their pregnancy? Also, I am suppose to pig out the next few weeks. She said lots of milkshakes. Any flavor recommendations? I just want little Caleb to be happy and healthy. Keep us in your prayers.
