I guess my body has decided that it is done being pregnant and just wants to get back to the way things where before. The only problem is that it is going about it all wrong. After several weeks of increasing blood pressure the doctor send me to the hospital for a non-stress test and blood work. The baby passed the test just fine. She doesn't seem to have notice the change in my blood pressure so far. But I totally failed the urine test and my blood pressure just kept bouncing all around. So we are meeting with the doctor tomorrow to discuss inducing. I have no problem with that as long as it is for the best interest of me and the baby and not just for convenience for them. I so wanted to start "naturally" but whatever it takes to get her here healthy is fine by me. We shall keep you posted.

We picked up a swing for the baby from my sisters last night and just set it on the floor for the evening. I was going to put it up today but as I was getting ready I found Mister already trying it out. I didn't even get a chance to cover it before he was in it. What is it about sleeping in something that is not meant for you. We got a cat bed last year for the cats and they never used it. I guess we should have just set up the baby crib sooner.

I thought that I should do something to keep the cats occupied instead of sleeping in all the baby places. I had gotten a fish tank for David when he came home from church with a gold fish a few months ago. The fish gave up the ghost about a month ago and so I got the tank back. We have had it sitting in the front room empty for a few weeks and so finally I got some fish to put in it the other day. We know have 3 guppies(1 male and 2 females) and an algae eater. The cats love it! Mister finally moved aside so that Aggie could get up to see them and talk to them. I hope that it keeps them entertained when the baby comes home. I've forgotten how much I love fish tanks. I was laying on the couch watching them the other night and found myself falling asleep. We haven't come up with names yet so if you have an suggestions feel free to comment on what you think they should be.

Aaron and I have been busy the last few days getting everything ready for Zoe to arrive. We have the corner of our room turned into a nursery. Not much room in our little house so we have to make due with the baby being with us for awhile. We have the bassinet sitting in the crib to save space. We where able to fit a rocking chair and changing table as well. Aaron set up a lamp for me with a blue light so I can have some light to nurse and change the baby's diapers at night but not so much light as to wake him up. He was very grateful for this. I just couldn't see but of us having to be awake at night.
So with all the new things for the baby the cats have taken it upon themselves to "test" it all out. I've put blankets over everything so that the cats can sleep in them without leaving cat hair on the sheets the baby will be on. I did however find one baby thing I forgot to cover. We have a vibrating chair downstairs for the baby to sleep in during the day and I found Aggie "testing" it out this morning. She was curled up with a stuffed dog that Aaron gave my for valentine's day. It was so cute. I guess I need to get another blanket.

Our last ultrasound was when I was only 18 weeks pregnant. They gave us only 80% that is was a girl. I was OK with that but between then and now I've had several dreams that I was having a boy. It really confused me and made me think it was just a shy boy. Well we had another ultrasound last night to make sure the baby was head down which it was. In fact, since it was head down we were able to get a good look at who it was. It is most definitely a girl. So I'm not sure why I had all these dreams about having a boy unless Noah just wants to make sure that I don't stop at one child.
We are so excited to meet Zoe. We were able to get some 4-D pictures of her and I think she looks like me already. HEHEHE It was hard to get a clear picture of her face because of the placement of the placenta and the fact that she is so far down. If anyone wants to guess on when I will deliver, the weight, length and time I will add you to our list. Whoever gets the closest will get a cheesy gift.
