Almost Time

I am WAY behind with our blog...partly because time is flying by...the other is because the computer that I put our pics on is upstairs, and I just don't venture up there that much right now. So, to play catch up a little...Right after I posted last, we had an offer on our house after about 4 years on the market. It sent me into a little of a panic at first. Wouldn't you know it..when the nursery is half way complete, someone would want our house. Long story short- we were suppose to be out by April 21st, but we are waiting for their house to sell. So the contract has been extended till June 30th. Whew! I can breathe again for a little bit. And I'm glad that we will be able to bring Ava home to her beautiful nursery.
In other news...If you are reading this, I guess it's evident that I have made it to 38 weeks! Yay! Short cervix and all..This pregnancy has been pretty easy for the most part, and I am thankful for that. Just for the sake of it, I'm going to do a Pregnancy Highlights-so I can remember this time.

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 38 weeks and 1 day

Size of Ava: According to our weekly checkup last Friday, she is estimated to way a whopping 8 lbs and 6 ozs- and she's not even here yet.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Around 20 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Yep! Yep! Got about 9 lbs of baby in this belly

Gender: We better be having a girl!

Movement: She was really active a couple of weeks ago, but the bigger she gets the less space she has in there. I still feel her every day. Now, it's just like whole body parts rolling across my stomach. She's really been responding to Trent and music.

Sleep: Is good till about 2 or 3 am. After that, I toss and turn for the rest of the night.

What I Miss: Absolutely nothing. I'm just ready for this sweet girl to get here!

Cravings: Let's see... Icee's still-especially coke Icee's. I feel like a bad mother admitting this but for the past two weeks, I have craved a coke everyday. Thank you Sonic happy hour! Other cravings: mushroom quesadillas with fresh pico de gallo-thank you Mi Pueblo! and the list goes on...

Symptoms: Waddle everywhere! I feel like I've become a side show attraction at school. The little kids love to make comments about the baby. The Junior High girls take one look at my stomach, then look at theirs, and then have this look of fear. I'm thinking it may be a good form of birth control for them.

Best Moment This Week: Was actually last Friday, when we found out her due date is moved up to May 18th with plans for an induction-if I don't go into labor before then! Exciting times!!! We are busy to last minute things in the Haynes household.

So to catch up to date a little more.. Here we go with some pics.

A sweet little diaper wreath for Baby Ava. You can't really see all of them, but there are these little wood humpty dumpty figures attached to ribbon that were on my nursery mobile when I was a baby.

Forrest City Baby Shower- April 3, 2011

It was beautiful, and we are so grateful for wonderful family and friends.
Ava is already one blessed and spoiled little girl.

My mom had this surprise for me. It was a framed picture of my great grandmother (Opal Leona), my mother (Ava Sue), me, and then we will put one in of Ava Leona when she's around the same age.
All of our sweet hostesses, me, and mom. Pretty sure my eyes are closed but oh well!
Soon to be family of 3-or 5 if you count our canine children!

I still have A LOT of catching up to do, but this is a start for now. Hopefully, I will get some more posts in before sweet baby comes but if not, life will go on! And how exciting it will be!
