Happy Birthday, Hugh

Words out of Hugh's mouth this week:
"Scoring goals never gets old."  "I hate losing"
How much do I love this man?
Hugh is 38 years old today. Easily the oldest guy on his hockey team. Still easily one of the best players (and other people would say that - not just his wife!). Hugh always says I'm the competitive one (which isn't a lie), but won't easily admit how competitive he can be. Both things I love about him.
Hugh is a great partner and father. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't hesitate to choose him.

Other words out of Hugh's mouth this week:

"I am old enough to be that teammate's dad" And it wouldn't have been a teen pregnancy! 
Happy birthday, babe! We love you and are thrilled we get to spend the year 38 with you.

False Alarm

I thought I was in labour late Saturday night. Like seriously thought it. I was pumped it was starting, because that meant this pregnancy would be over, but upset because I really, really, really want to go into labour during the day. I was so convinced I was in labour that I actually started rounding up things in the middle of the night to pack in my suitcase. Remember, I haven't packed one yet! I knew Hugh would be good at gathering most of the stuff on my list, but nursing tank and flip flops could be stumpers for him.

Obviously, I wasn't in labour. If I had been this would be a post about baby #4 and not titled "false alarm". In my defence I was experiencing EXACTLY what I experienced for my first couple hours with Boone's labour. Turns out there must be a flu going around with the exact same symptoms. Hooray for me. Because of the flu I felt crappy on Sunday and to top it all off, I was upset I didn't have a baby. I am 38 weeks today. Boone came 9 days l…

New Slippers!

HERE is the post about the slippers I bought while pregnant with Boone. Here are the upgrades:
I bought these at The Trading Post downtown Saskatoon. Apparently, they sell them in Tisdale as well if you are looking! They came HIGHLY recommended by Deena and my sister-in-law, Brittany. They were pricey (over $80), but I have quickly fallen in love. They are definitely an upgrade from my last pair. I love, love, love them! Hooray for IVIG treatments being over!

Random Thoughts

I have been busy checking things off my nesting list this week. I've also been able to get a visit in with some friends and spend some time with each of the boys. So far, so good! I will also note that I am feeling a lot better not being on my feet as much and being able to lie down during the day (Calder has school and Boone is going to daycare part-time).

I had an ultrasound and pre-natal appointment on Friday. Dr. M told me that things were looking good and that she thought I would make it a week, but didn't think I would make it the 3 weeks to my due date. I'm not sure if it was her words, or my own paranoia, but I was a little afraid this past weekend that I was having signs of labour. Okay. I was more than just a little afraid. I actually started crying on Saturday night when I thought I was in the beginning stages. I felt like I was getting ripped off not having one day to myself!  Needless to say, I did not go into labour and have since settled with the fact that I…
