34 weeks and a little scare!

Well, I am now 34 weeks as of today and according to Baby Center, Drayton should be about 4 3/4 pounds and 18 in. long.   I believe the 18 in. long since he simultaneously shoves up under my ribs and kicks down on my leg sending shooting pains.  The tiredness is definitely coming back.  I've gone back to about a nap a day. 

So, for my little scare, I've had Braxton Hicks contractions every now and then for about 10 weeks.  Well, last night, they decided to kick it into high gear.  I was having one about every 5 minutes.  So after staying calm for about 6 in a row, I started to freak out from the 7th through the 15th.  I looked up anything I could about them and found that if you have more than 4 in an hour, go to the hospital.  Well, considering I'd had about 13 in an hour, I started to panic.  We were fairly close to going to the hospital when my doctor called me back and told me not to worry and just go to sleep.  I liked that option better, so that's what we did!  They continued through the night, but today have been much better today.

We thought for a moment we might have an extra special Christmas present!  We're glad we just got the snow instead.  Merry Christmas!

Not a good sign

Well, I would say it is not a good sign that already I am going forever without updating the blog and i don't even have a kid yet.  I will try to do better!  We had Thanksgiving in Rogersville and Nashville which was so much fun and so great to get to see family.  Unfortunately, I forgot my camera.  In Nashville, my cousins threw me a family shower which was so nice.  When we got back, Linda's sweet friend, Allene, gave us a wonderful shower with all of the Airport Freeway crew.  (That is Tim and Linda's church)  And then we had our Pine Tree shower at church!  So we have been so blessed and are almost ready for little Drayton! 

We then went to Duncan, Oklahoma to have Christmas with Ty's mom's side of the family.  I did take a few pictures from there. There was a wonderful array of gifts for Dirty Santa.

The Seat cousins minus Cole and Tiffany, and Wes and Carrie

Grandmom and Jack with the plaque Ty made for them.

And now for the belly pics.  I will say, these are not the most flattering and it's ok if you agree with me.  It makes my head look tiny compared to my mammoth stomach.  I was a little appalled when I looked at the pictures after Ty took them (especially the first).  Also, if you want to see bare belly pics, you can email  me and I will send some.  Those are pretty funny as well, I just don't want to post my bare belly on the web.  So, without further ado, here are the 33 1/2 week belly pics.

I will have an appointment next Monday and then after that, it will be every week!  That is crazy that it is just about 6 weeks away.  Nuts!

Well, Have a Merry Christmas!  We are in Grapevine for Christmas with Ty's family and then will be home until Drayton comes!
