This past Sunday I woke up with a horrible backache. I really thought it was because I worked really hard the day before and my body was just not use to it. But Monday came and the ache continued. It wasn't until Monday night that I knew something wasn't right. I woke up two or three times due to contractions. So today, of all days, I went to see the doctor to make sure everything was going smoothly. By the time I made the appointment, I could barely keep it together, and I was terrified that something was majorly wrong. She sent me to the hospital to have the FFN test, and to be monitored. The test came back negative, which was a huge sigh of relief. However, I did have 4 contractions while I was there. I had to laugh, because according to them, once I hit 6 contractions, then I needed to come back!! SO I guess I'm suppose to wait it out, and hope that I don't start having 6 contractions an hour... BUT what do I do for the pain until I have her?? I have been blessed with a wonderful family. Even better, I was blessed to have married into a great family too!! Two weeks ago Mark's cousin, Aunt Susie and Grandma Maroney threw me a baby shower. Honestly, it was really hard for me, only because I felt I shouldn't have one since I had one with Grant. But Kimberly persisted, and I am so glad that she did. I had an awesome time getting to know the Maroney girls. My mom, Megan and Macki were able to come too! Which made it all the much better!!

- 70 days, exactly today!
- 10 Weeks exactly!!!!
- I only have 9 more Mondays left to work
- 6 more Dr visits (hopefully)
- I only have to wear my work clothes for 10 more weeks (I hope they'll fit!)
- 5 more paydays
- In 17 days, officially, I will be able to say, "I'm having a baby next month"
- Mark & I only have 7 more Saturdays to get the bathroom and Cami's bedroom done (he works 1 Saturday a month)
- 43 days left of work, good thing I'm training someone!!
Ok, so I may be a little obsessed! I'm very excited. I can't wait to see what she'll look like... To start losing this weight, ugh... To finally share her with Mark... There is so much that still needs to be done, it's overwhelming. But I am glad that the c-section is scheduled and we know that she'll be here on Friday October 23, Mark and I will have been married exactly 9 months! Bet not a lot of people can say that!

I am not sure why I love to watch Grant eat, but I do!! This is a little boy who knows what he likes!! I have had to be come creative when cooking, because I want him to be healthy and not face weight issues (seems to be a big problem with kids these days!!) I borrowed my mom's wheat grinder and have found out that Grant will eat wheat pancakes just as much as he'll eat regular ones. I've learned about making different kinds of quick breads, and muffins with wheat. It's actually been fun, and I've enjoyed eating these treats too! If you look closely at this cookie, you'll notice that it's covered in frosting... Oh wait, it's all over his face! It's not healthy. At all. We tried decorating them, but he just wanted to eat the frosting. Mark kids that he is just like his mommy... What?? I like (ok LOVE) frosting! It makes the cake!

I have so many wonderful memories of Megan. Growing up, I never thought we would be friends. I am so proud of the person she has become. She is a great mommy, wife and sister. I admire what she has done with her life. I long to live closer to my family. I miss my family. I miss fitting in, and having them to be around. But I probably miss having my little sister the most, especially right now! I LOVE YOU MEGAN!!
