Will this ever end?

My family (and Joes) has been trying to get over the flu. Everyday someone new is sick. I have never in my life seen so many sick people in a weeks time! When will this end?

Brady's Blessing

Today Brady had his blessing. He was blessed at Grandma and Grandpa Johnson's ward. It was really great to have family and friends there to see him get blessed. It was very special to have Joe's family play Christmas music too. Brady and I will be upset to see Joe leave on Tuesday. I am just glad he got to see his baby's first two weeks of life. Hopefully we will see him in a couple months. I can't wait until we can all just live together!

Here are some pictures on christmas

Well here is the birth story..I will keep it short! I got to the hospital Monday morning at 1 AM and I was 2 and a half cm dilated. Then 4 hours later I got the epidural when I was 6cm..then 20 minutes or so later I was fully dilated and pushing. 30 minutes later Brady Dell Johnson was Born!

Brady Dell Johnson has arrived!

Brady Dell Johnson came and we can't get enough of this cute little guy! He was 7 pounds 11 oz and 20 inches long! I will post more pictures and the story of the birth when I am more awake!

My lovely trip to the hospital

The last couple days have been kinda crazy for me. Last night I started having these killer contractions around 8 and they were around 2-4 min apart. I just stayed at home as long as I could and at 1:00AM I told my sister that I need to go to the hospital. We got there and my contractions were around 2-3 min apart and very very painful! They told me to walk around for an hour and if anything has changed they would keep me. Well I walked around the hospital until 3:00 AM and then nothing had changed. I was SO upset! I thought for sure that this little guy was coming! She then gave me a shot of morphine for the pain and sent me home. I woke up this morning feeling great! So who knows when he is going to come! Hopefully soon! I am getting really sick of trying to put my socks on and falling over! I don't even remember what it feels like not to be pregnant!

I think I am going crazy...

I went to my OB appt. today and she told me that nothing has changed...She kinda gave me false hope last time she checked me! She made it seem like I was going to have a baby in a couple weeks. Well it's been a couple weeks and nothing. So I will let you know what happens at next weeks appt! I just hope I have this baby in time for Joe to see him. I just wish my Dr. would agree to induce me when the baby is 40 weeks. I guess the only thing I can do is pray that the little guy comes a little early for Christmas!

What I have been up to this November

This is what I have been up to this November:

November 6th Was my birthday and that was a blast!

I have been taking the dogs on walks everyday...

I Watched everyone cook the Thanksgiving meal :)

My mom is a little Martha Stewart! She really made Thanksgiving special this year even though it was just the four of us. She still make a weeks worth of food! Very yummy!

My dad carved the turkey..the dogs are hoping some fall to the ground.

Last night we put up the tree! I spent 3 hours yesterday wrapping presents so I am glad to be done with that. I decided to buy all of the x-mas gifts early because I don't know how much longer I will have until my little boy decides to come. Black friday was NOT fun for me! but at least I can relax til Christmas!

Just counting down the days....

36 week belly pic

I wish I had some new exciting news but I don't. I went to the Dr. yesterday and she wouldn't check me so I have no clue if I have made any progress. I posted some pics of my room. I moved all of my stuff into a downstairs room because that room is warmer. Moving all of my stuff was very hard! I couldn't walk the next day. I am excited for the baby to finally come! I just hope it is in the next couple weeks! Joe and I just need to figure out what the little guys name will be! If you have any ideas let me know!
Joe will be home in 3 weeks and 3 days! I am so excited! He is really excited to see his family. He spends most of his days cleaning and going to class. He has made lots of friends and they like to watch movies and play video games. He also spends a great deal of time talking to his crazy, emotional, pregnant wife. :)

He's coming soon!

I went to my OB check up and got some suprising news. I asked the Dr. to induce me and she told me that there is no way I am even going to make it to my due date. I am already dialated a little bigger than a two! She said that she thinks I have a couple weeks left if that. So who knows! I would rather go early than later. At least Joe will spend the entire two weeks with his baby. I am really glad that my body decided to try to get this baby out early! The Dr. thinks he is about 7 pounds and head down so he is ready to come out! Wish me luck!

5 weeks left! (hopefully)

Well I am 35 weeks now. I can't wait til this pregnancy is over! I can't believe how fast it has gone by! I am going to my ob appt tomorrow and I am going to ask her to induce me on Dec 21st or 22nd so Joe can spend time with his baby. Joe will be flying in on the 20th! I am so excited! It has been really hard with out him! Anyways I will let you know if my plan to be induced worked! I will be doing lots of begging!

Congrats to Melissa and Alicia! Your little babies are so cute! I wonder who is next! Sara and I have the same due date! It's a race! :)

My dad +a dull saw blade + flying wood = painful hand and belly

Well yesterday my dad got into a fight with a saw and some wood at work. The saw kicked back and my dad broke his hand and cut his stomach. He was in the ER all day yesterday. He is fine and just needs his hand to heal. Doesn't that look scary and painful?
