38 weeks and 4 days

Bun still in the oven for those of you I haven't talked to in awhile. We are just about done with our list of things to do, which is great because I am starting to slow down a little more. It has been great to relax a little bit each day and try to prepare for this little one. Mark and I were talking yesterday and we just cannot believe how fast it has gone by. Although he followed up and said, I can barely remember you not being pregnant! Great! We are very excited and nervous all at the same time. The doctor's visit today went about the same as last week. Not too much progress since last Friday. Good news is that my doctor doesn't like his patients to go past 41 weeks, so regardless we will have our baby in 2 1/2 weeks!! How is that for a little dose of reality! We look forward to meeting you little babe!

37 weeks

Here I am at 37 weeks along in the pregnancy! Less than 3 weeks to go (or somewhere around there). All is good with the baby. Heartbeat was about 138 at the last doctor visit. Doc says that everything looks good, just not quite ready yet. Bun still needs to bake in the oven!

I realized that the post below is a little outdated. I am about 36 1/2 weeks along in the pregnancy and will be going to the doctor again tomorrow. Less than one month left, depending on when the little one wants to join us!

Stammen wedding in the Thumb

Thought I would post some pictures of Joel and Becca's wedding in Port Austin, Michigan. Where is Port Austin you may ask? 6 hours north of Troy on the very tip of the Michigan thumb. And no, it is not a very big town. We had a great time (mostly Mark) at the Blue Spruce Motel, although we weren't able to go into the swimming pool because the weather was just a little too cool! It was nice to see the lake and walk around the cute little town. The group managed to take over The Landing (small dark/dingy bar), play lots of cornhole, have a campfire and stay up late 3 nights in a row. Thank you to Joel and Becca for an unforgettable weekend! Mark is still recovering! Your wedding was fun and it really looked like you guys had a great time as well. We are so happy for you and hope you are having a great time on the honeymoon! See you when you get back.

Tony singing The Gambler and Mark "the sidekick" helps from the audience. lovely.

On the way back from MI, Mark and I were talking about this trip being our last big hurrah before the baby comes! Yikes, it is hard to believe that 9 months can go by so fast! Well, this summer has surely been fun and we look forward to our little one's arrival very soon. I will be seeing the doctor on a weekly basis now to see if we are making any progress. I will be sure to keep you all updated.
