so i kept trace home with me on wednesday and it was a bittersweet day. do you ever start thinking about your "lasts?" well i've been thinking about lots of lasts lately. and wednesday was the last "mommy and me" day that trace and i will have before lucas. i know we will still occasionally have those days once lucas is here, but it's not the same! trace is my little baby, he loves his mommy so much and the feeling is quite mutual!! so we had a wonderful wednesday and i am so thankful to have spent the day with him. today trace went to meme's where he will stay the nite and they will bring him to the hospital in the morning. it's wierd not having him here tonite, but at the same time, it gives nate and i a little bit of last minute rest! this morning i did my share of cleaning, but rewarded myself this afternoon with one last pregnancy pedicure *it was heavenly* and then ordered pizza for dinner! i can't eat after midnite so i figured i'd better eat good before then :)
so tomorrow is obviously the big day... we will finally finally finally meet lucas! seems like i've been pregnant forever, but it's only been 38 weeks (and 5 days) to be exact :) we are set to be at the hospital at 6 AM... i am hoping to get an epidural as soon as we get there, then push this little baby out (i hope he's little) and still catch a late breakfast. HA. hey, i'm trying to stay positive!!
seriously though. when i let my mind wander of course a million thoughts and worries could enter. but i've given it all over to god so i'm praying for a peaceful sleep tonite... i know it will be a good long while til i get another semi-uninterrupted sleep! ;) i remember those days of waking every 2-3 hours with a newborn. i know god gave us the strength to get thru them with trace and he will do the same for us and lucas!
please remember to say a little prayer for us, if you think about it! i know things will go great. and i will update whenever i get a minute, hopefully at least a cute lil pic sometime tomorrow! until then, here are a few pics of my sweet trace car. man, i love this boy!!!!!!!!!!!

i haven't posted any pics of trace lately... so i thought i would take a few of him being cute. well he was being goofy instead. so anywho. here's what we got :) he's still a cutie though, they just weren't the great pics i was hoping for.
i went to the dr again yesterday, i am still almost 4 cm dilated and now 80% effaced. overall good visit, i was just hoping to get some kind of help or be further along so that they couldn't send me home. i wanted them to hook me up to the moniter, but they wouldn't. augghh, so why am i not having contractions?? who knows?!?well here's the good news: if lucas does not come on his own before next friday, jan 30, then dr adcock will induce me! woo hoo :) so no more than 9 more days of being pregnant, i am so excited! plus i have been fighting this bronchitis and sinusitis junk again, the same thing i had before thanksgiving, but now it is worse b/c i am 37+ weeks pregnant. i feel like i might cough this baby out! but i'm on my 3rd day of strong antibiotics so i'm hoping to get well before lucas gets here!

so i had decided to have some professional belly pics taken this pregnancy. well i have not gotten a chance to have them done yet, and when i got put on bedrest, i was so sad that it just wasn't gonna happen. sooo today i sweet talked nate into playing the part of my at-home photographer! we def. don't have the best lighting or set-up here at the house for a photo shoot, but we made the most of it! i took a small break from my bedrest and we had a mini photo shoot. i think he did great! i don't always feel very photogenic these days, but i was happy with the way most of them turned out. here are just a few of them. watch out, i'm warning you, my belly is getting big! according to the books i'm reading, lucas should be about 5 1/2 pounds right now. it's hard to believe he will be here so soon. i'm really starting to wonder, what will he look like? will he look just like trace did when he was so tiny or will he be totally different? will he have dark hair or no hair? dimples or not? i can't wait to see him for the first time, i know he will be just perfect. we are praying for god's perfect timing and until then... just trying to be patient til we meet baby lucas.

SO onto lucas news: i went to the dr today, i am 35 weeks prego. i have made a lil more progress, i am dialated to "a good 3 cm" the dr said, and still 60% effaced. wow!! i was able to ask a lot of questions about bedrest, mine and the baby's health, pre-term labor, etc. and i was happy with all the answers i got. dr ross thinks that lucas will be here by next weekend. wow, so hard to believe! but so far everything looks good, even if i have him next week the dr thinks he should be ready to face the world and will be a healthy little guy. so praise the lord for another good report. i'm still supposed to take it easy this next week, and then i'll go back next tuesday for another check up. will keep you posted!
