Let the countdown begin!

9 weeks left.

I wish I could say it was the FINAL countdown, but that doesn't begin till we have 5 weeks left.
As of today I am 213 days pregnant (30wks 4 days) and have only 60 days left!

The C-Section date has been set!!
Mark your calendars and adjust your work schedules, Wednesday November 2, 2011 around 6am will be the birthday of Baby Boy #2 :D
Unless he decided to come early that is.

But as of right now it looks like we'll be on schedule. My blood pressure has been perfect, my swelling minimal, and while there is an 80% chance I'll get preeclampsia again, right now I'm doing great.
Apparently 4,000 IU's of Vitamin D a day keeps your blood pressure down, thank you Dr. Mikel.

Me, today at 30 1/2wks

It's ok if you think I look huge, there happens to be an enormous baby inside of me.
How big?
Well as of 2 weeks ago he was at 2 lbs 12 oz, putting him in the 75th percentile for weight.
They also broke the news to me that his head is enormous.
I suspected as much seeing as how Preston's head has been in the 95th percentile since birth.

We do have a name picked out, and if you want to know what it is, ask and I'll tell you.
It's pretty awesome.

What else to update you on. . . .

I'm not as sick as I use to be. I only throw up like 3-4 times a week now which is MUCH better.

I've gained a total of 8 lbs so far, which my doctor is pleased with.

I'm trying to get things ready for the baby, but still feel like I have lots to do. Like buy diapers.

He moves around A TON, but get's the hiccups a lot less then Preston did at this stage.

Preston and the baby already fight. Preston will sit on my lap and the baby will kick him. Just a sign of things to come I suppose!

Not any huge cravings, the only thing I think I crave a lot of is soda. I don't normally drink it, and I've been giving myself 1 soda a week, but lately all I want everyday is a Pepsi. I don't even LIKE Pepsi!

I've been having a lot of pain with my sciatic nerve and my heels hurting (plantar fasciitis) both of which I'm hoping go away after the baby is born. In the meantime I'm suppose to wear tennis shoes (aka Mom shoes) around all the time. Riiiiiiight....

We're all really really excited for him to come. We just want to snuggle him & talk about how we can't remember what life was like before he came to us.
