Predictions Anyone?

I had another appointment today.  Everything is still going great and we're still on track.  My doctor told me that as of next Saturday I will no longer qualify for steroids or magnesium if I go into labor which just goes to show how great everything is going for us.

This weekend was kind of crazy.  Friday night I just wasn't the least bit tired and ended up staying awake until 2 or 3am.  Of course Saturday morning I slept in until 9 or 10am!  We didn't have anything to do this weekend so we pretty much just sat around after Doug finished mowing the grass.  We watched the NASCAR race Saturday night and then relaxed for a while on Sunday before I left for Alabaster.  I went a little early this weekend because Doug and I were having a hard time installing the car seat we had bought when I was pregnant with Logan.  So I decided to go to the fire department in Alabaster, who installed the same car seat in our car two years ago.

Well, that didn't go so well, they got the car seat in but it was definitely not at the correct angle for a newborn.  So my mom and I went out looking for something to correct the angle issue.  We bought a car seat leveler but it wasn't enough because of the slope of our van seats so I started looking at the different car seats in the store.  I ended up picking a Britax car seat that I really liked and when we put it in the van it worked soooo much better.  I was so relieved to finally have a car seat that fit correctly without a huge gap! 

And then we found out that the car seat I had bought was on sale at Target.  They didn't have a pattern that I liked at the Target in Alabaster so we ended up buying this car seat online:

I feel so much better knowing that it fits so well and it was definitely worth the money.

And this morning I found a screw in one of my tires and had to go have it patched before I could come home.

While we were waiting at the tire place my mom and I started talking about when Eli will come and decided to start a little pool.  Not that there's really any prize for the winner, but we're taking guesses/predictions for the date and time he will be born.  So if you'd like to play along, let me know your guess.  I'm keeping a list of all the guesses and it will be fun to see who is closest.

So that you have all the information, today I am 33 weeks 2 days.  My stitch will be removed on or about Sept. 20 (if I make it that far).  My due date is Oct. 9.  So guess away and I'll let everyone know who won when Eli gets here!


  1. september 20th!!!!!!!! at 6:13

  2. I'm SO bad at guessing this stuff! But I did want to say YAY for the Britax. They are the best carseats they make (in my opinion)!

  3. I could see little Eli making his appearance on September 20 as well which would be great since that is Brett and my anniversary! However, I think it will be somewhere around Sept. 28 or Oct. 8. I see an 8 being somewhere involved with Eli. It could be in his birth date or time like 4:48.

    Also, I have a gift for Eli! Will you be around this weekend?
