Bullet Style

I decided to do this update in bullet points...much quicker, since my desire to update is severely diminishing

*Last Wednesday- Pretty exciting day to say the least. My branch got robbed, and you guessed it, I was the lucky teller that the robber chose. Yippee. It was the most unbelievable realization, it happened so fast I had no time to panic, I actually found myself asking myself "Seriously!?!?" Long story short, he was in and out in like 5 minutes (no one else in the branch even knew that I was robbed) and no one was hurt. They still have yet to catch him even though he wore no disguise!

*Sunday- Austin and I had our Childbirth Class. I thought Austin would leave that class scared to death, or at least scarred by some of the details that he would find out (haha), but he told me himself that he really enjoyed it and had a good time! Who knew?! I think it helped that we had a pretty cool teacher (who we found out was from Jax! Small world...) and a really fun class. We both got alot out of it and I'm really glad we did it, even though the thought of labor still freaks me out. Anyone want to do that part for me?? ;)

That night we went to our church's Christmas presentation. We have been getting to know a couple our age that live across the street from us and had invited them to come with us, and they did. I think they really enjoyed it, I know we did!

*This week- My doctor's office finally got back with me on my three hour glucose test results....and I am GOOD :) No gestational diabetes! Yay!

Work is nothing more than packing up retention and paperwork and cleaning out EVERYTHING (since we're closing...did I ever mention that?? If not, yeah, come January 29th, my branch will be closed. Fun times!). That's basically all my life will consist of at work until I have Peyton. Whoohoo.

*Pregnancy-wise- Three words: I am R-E-A-D-Y. I've had a great pregnancy so far, so I can't really complain...wait, yes I can, and I will. As of about two weeks ago, I'm just down right miserable. Sleep is torture and it's so sad because it's something I once looked forward to, lol. My hips hurt almost daily and there's nothing I can do (atleast not that I have found) to make the pain/achiness go away. I have been blessed enough to not have anything swell, until a few days ago. My poor beautiful tootsies have started to be slightly poofy at times :(. I've always been warm natured, but now the preggo hormones have turned up the thermostat! That was my rant. I just needed to get it all out :)

I've found myself saying that even though we don't have all the baby items we need, I would be perfectly fine if Miss Peyton decided to come now, lol. Austin and I are just so excited to be able to hold her and to see who she looks like!!

*This weekend- We're going to finish our Christmas present shopping Saturday and on Sunday we have our tour of the hospital's Labor and Delivery!! I am REALLY excited about that!! :)

Question for the Mommies out there

What is every one's take on infant vaccinations, as far as- all at one time or a few at a time?

I seem to be leaning towards the side of spreading them out....so that Peyton doesn't get like 5 at a time (while she is so little). If you did space them out, were your doctors acceptable of this or did you seem to meet some resistance?

I've got to pick a pediatrician, and it's hard. Especially when you're in a city that you did not grow up in/are not that familiar with. The few people that I know are fellow employees that either had their kids awhile ago or don't have any at all. I know it's good to interview your picks, but with my work schedule and the hectic-ness of the rest of the year (and my pregnancy!!) I don't think I'll have time!! I'm thinking about just picking one, so at least that's out of the way and then just seeing how it goes from there....any suggestions??

31 Week Update....thought it was time for another

How far along: 31 weeks and 3 days

Total weight gain/loss: 14 lbs.

Maternity clothes: pants- pretty much all maternity (I do have two pair of "normal" work pants that I love and still wear...I just can't button them, lol. shirts- mixture...I LOVE that fashion is on a preggo's side. If it's loose or flowy enough I wear it!

Stretch marks: still none...

Sleep: Ughhhh, it's happened. I do NOT sleep very well. Every position is down right uncomfortable, even at times painful! Between the tossing and turning and my arms falling asleep, I don't know which I love more :p Oh well, the price you pay!

Movement: All.the.time. It's more of a squirming now, instead of constant jabs. Poor baby is losing room! ;)

Food cravings: Still NONE. I'm boring.

Labor Signs: none. But I do have Braxton Hicks every now and then

Belly Button in or out: It depends on the day, lol. Some of it's in, but then some of it is out. Weird, I know

What I miss: Sleeping on my belly withOUT my arms falling asleep ALL THE TIME!

Weekly Wisdom: Prioritze. Don't let yourself get wrapped up in EVERYTHING that you think you should have...it's what you NEED!!

Milestones: Being in my THIRD trimester already!! AHHH I can't believe it!!

The Rumseys- Thanksgiving 2009

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We spent Wednesday night through Friday evening in Orlando with my family and Friday eveing through Sunday with Austin's. Austin, my sister Amanda and other sister Sarah's boyfriend Josh, ran in a 5k Turkey Trot bright and early Thanksgiving morning.

Then everyone got cleaned up and ready for Thanksgiving lunch! Yum :) The food was wonderful (as always), we all ate too much (as we should!), and we all enjoyed spending time talking and catching up with eachother.

On to Jacksonville! We had a great time there as well. Saturday morning I met up with my best girlfriend, Jenn. She left her precious baby girl with her Daddy so that we could catch up on some quality girl time!! (Which is ALWAYS needed!) After Starbucks for coffee, pedicures and a little store hopping, we parted ways.

Later that day, Austin, his Dad and brother headed to the woods for "man time" and I hit the outlets with Mom Rumsey and Lisa! Whoohoo...can never shop too much! lol. I got a small bit of Christmas shopping accomplished, which was good, because Austin nor I had started yet! :/ I was preeetttyyy pooped by the time we got home that night. WHEW! Traffic was HORRIBLE coming home Sunday afternoon...but I guess that should be expected on the last day of a long weekend. Doesn't mean I have to like it!! ;) All in all...GREAT GREAT GREAT Turkey Day!

First Shower...A Success!!

Here are some pics from our first shower...I'm a little behind :/
