Well, I had my first weekly exam today. The doctor said everything looks great, baby is no longer measuring small, and her heartbeat is good and strong.

Now, for the big news…I’m already dilated to 2cm, and 75% effaced! The doctor said our little girl could literally come anytime now…maybe this weekend, or maybe another 2 or 3 weeks from now. She said it’s likely that the baby will be out before her due date! She also said that the baby is kind of head-butting her way out…putting so much pressure on my uterus that it looks like she’s dilating me faster :)

So, everyone get ready…baby girl Brunson is going to be here soon!

Well, I’m 35 weeks this week, so our little girl should be here sometime in the next 5 or 6 weeks. Its so hard to believe that the past 8 months have gone by so fast!

All of the baby showers were so much fun! Thanks to everyone who came, and special thanks to Donna, Susan, Kanda, Lynn, Angie, Sarah, Maria and the Harris Baptist Church ladies for putting on the fabulous showers! We got so many wonderful gifts for our baby girl! With all the gifts, and the stuff we’ve bought, we’ve just about gotten the nursery ready for her! I’ll post pictures of the finished nursery when we get it cleaned up and completed :)

Randy Pace took some amazing pictured of me and Tyler a few weeks ago on March 25th (about 33 weeks)! We absolutely love them! Here are a few of my favorites:








Kate Hunter also did a plaster cast of my belly. It looks so awesome! She’s decorating it right now, but I’ll upload a picture of it when its done. Its going to hang on the wall in the nursery.

I can really feel the baby getting bigger now. It honestly feels like I’ve gotten a lot bigger even in the past few days! She kicks all night, and wiggles around constantly. Tyler gets pretty freaked out when he feels her, because her movements are so strong! She’s pretty bad about keeping me up at night with her moving, and I’ve become addicted to Tums, but other than that, I haven’t had many issues. All in all, its been a pretty enjoyable pregnancy! I’m almost sad to having it ending, though i really can’t wait to meet her!

I’ll try to post again soon…and try to keep this updated more often :)
