Baby oh Baby It's Been awhile..

So I haven't been on here in forever and I never posted about My labor or the baby.. So I figured what the heck its been almost a year let me finish it off. So here I am finishing my Chappell Baby and then printing it out for my Sophie's baby book.

First off let me start off with why I stop blogging. My husband was laid off from his job 1 week before Sophie was due. Let me tell you how tore up I was. It was so hard just because they took my insurance right from under our feet. I was shattered and didn't know what we were going to do. Let me just say I HATE SCHLUMBERGER!!!!! They say they are family orientated but they are not.. All a LIE.

My mom was kind enough to let us move in with her until we could get back on our feet again. Thing was she lived in San Antonio Texas. My mother in law was with us at he time and she also lived in San Antonio so we pack up the house in about 2 1/2 - 3 days and Drove all the way to San Antonio. Me 9 months pregnant.. Man was that a hard trip.. So we made it to San Antonio and I started looking for doctors that would take me as a VBAC.. No one would.. I felt like crying all the time.. I never thought I would be in this situation to were I felt so helpless and scared. Not just for me but for my baby I was carrying..

I stared having hard contractions on the 22nd of March. Which is the due date my doctor had given me. It was around lets say 2 ish am that we headed up to the er.. I warned them that if they were to put a knife anywhere near me I was going to sue. I was not having another c-section. I would go give birth in our vehicle and then come back into the er when I had the baby if it was going to come down to that. It just so happened the doctor that was on call that night knew the doctor who did my c-section and agreed she would take me on as a patient and let me have a VBAC.. Praise the Lord.. It was all his doing. He knew what was going to happen. I should have just left it all alone and he would have provided , What can I say. I'm human and I freaked but everything worked out perfectly. I was only in labor for 4 hrs and only pushed twice and I had a beautiful baby girl. 6lbs 8oz... It was the easiest labor I could have asked for.

So now Sophia is 10 months and into everything. She is starting to walk and loves to play with her brother.. She calls him Bubba.. I couldn't ask for a better child. Oh and I was so worried about breastfeeding and in all actuality it was so easy and she does great. THE END !!!!

Monday's Doctor Appt.

It went really well yesterday. The doctor said that Sophia is measuring out about 34-35 weeks and I am only 33 weeks. So that is a plus, hopefully that means she is going to be a healthy little baby. I also talked to him about stripping my membranes when I get closer to my due date (only if my cervix has thinned a little) so that way Chris will be for sure at home and not in the field to take me to the hospital. He said that if he was to strip my membranes (if it works) normally you will know within 48 hours if you are going to go into labor. That is my one concern is that Chris will be hours away on a job and not make it back to town in time for me to have the baby and him miss the whole thing. So when we decide to strip them Chris can take off a few days to be on the safe side. I still can't believe how fast this is coming. It's already the beginning of February and I am due in March.. Eeeekkkkk !!!!!! HaHaHa I am so excited !!!!

Oh I Forgot These

The first ones are me taking the picture and then the last one Caleb took of my belly. It looks so flippin big in that picture. HaHaHa We took these at like 6 in the morning. :) I am about 30-31 Weeks here.

33 Weeks Today

I haven't kept up with this blog like I intended. It seems every time I say I am going to write on here I get busy with something else or I just plain out don't do it. I am really going to try to keep up with it7 the next couple of weeks. I SWEAR !!!!

So today I am 33 weeks pregnant. Only about 7 more to go. I can't believe how extremely fast this has gone by. My last Dr. Appt went really well. Sophie was measuring out exactly how she should and her little heart beat was just as strong as it has ever been. She has been moving around a lot lately but she has her days were she is less active and just sleeps I suppose. I have been having really bad insomnia. I can't figure out if I just can't get comfortable or I am just so anxious. I have another Dr. Appt on Monday so I will write and let you all know how that goes. After this appt. I will start going every week instead of every 2 weeks. Oh the anticipation. So I went out today and bought a nursing bra. I was having a really hard time finding one that fit because well I have Big Boobs. I am now in a size G and after the baby is born I will go up about 1 size. So that would make me a H. Well I guess that's a plus side of pregnancy (The Big Boobs). Well my husband thinks so at least. I would rather not since I am the one that has to try and find something to fit them. HaHaHa I also bought a breast pump today. I was really wanting one just in case I need to pump for a some reason. Those suckers aren't cheap let me tell you but well worth the money. I am still not done with everything that needs to be done before Sophia gets here. I still need to wash baby clothes and sheets. Plus I need to pack my hospital bag. I have everything for it now just need to pack it. Well I better get off of here I am just rambling on. I will write more on Monday! Oh here is a little video I took a few weeks ago of Sophie kicking the tv changer on my belly. It isn't that good of a video, I took it on my phone.

29 Weeks 1 Day Pregnant

We went yesterday for a 4D sonogram. It was so neat. Sophia is normally really active around the time we went but I guess she knew what we were up to cause she tried to hide the whole time. She is already giving me a hard time. Caleb wasn't to interested in it. He stayed in the playroom they have playing with blocks. He came in the room a few time to see what we were doing and to give my belly a little raspberry to see if Sophie would move but then was on his way. HaHaHa All together we got about 70 pictures and most of them are of her feet in her face or her hands trying to cover her face. We did get a few of her face. I think it is so amazing how we already have a picture in our heads of what our little baby girl will look like. She is going to be so pretty. I can't wait. She looks a lot like Caleb. I guess my genes are strong.. Oh Yeah ..... HaHaHa Chris was so excited. He was laughing and ohhhing and awwing at how she would move around and how she was so stubborn. It was so nice to be able to experience being able to see her before she is born. I go to the doctors on Friday so I will give an update on that after I am done. Here is a few pictures of Sophia that we got yesterday. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!! Oh I also have a few videos. Once I get them all upload to my computer I will put a few up. They are so awesome!!!

28 Weeks 1 Day

I still can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. It blows my mind. Sophia is doing great. She rolls around non stop and at night when I lay down to go to sleep she kicks the crap out of me. HaHaHa I love it though. When ever she starts kicking I call Chris so he can come feel her move around but as soon as he puts his hand on my belly she stops. I am mean literally she is super still. HaHaHa We go Saturday for our 4D sonogram. I am super excited. As soon as we get done I will post pictures.

Christmas was fun. It was just the 3 of us and Caleb made out like a bandit. Santa broke the bank this year. HaHaHa I am so glad it's over though. Now I can get my house back to order and make some more room for baby. The joys of living in an apartment. I can't wait til we move. I keep saying that but we keep re-signing the lease. LOL Oh well someday I will have more room. Here are a few pictures, one of Caleb and the other of me and my belly !

28 week body shot. I look like a big purple plum.. HeHeHe
