My Due Date!!

Yep, that's me...still very pregnant, still at school, and going crazy!

Well it's officially Dec. 18th, my due date, and there is no sign of little Maddux. I went to the doctor last night hoping for some good news but I am still just dilated to a 2 and 80% effaced. Which is what I have been for the last 3 weeks. Thankfully, I have an appointment set to be induced on Friday morning, Dec. 21st, at 5 a.m. It gives me something to look forward to. My colleges can't believe I am still here but my students couldn't be happier! (they are worried about me leaving them) If Maddux doesn't decide to come today or tomorrow then Greg and I have decided to both take Thursday off of school to relax a little together before I am induced on Friday and then he has two weeks off for Christmas Vacation. I feel really blessed that he gets to spend that time with us before having to return to work.

We hope that the next blog will be pictures of our little boy... we'll keep you updated!

Ward Baby Shower

Last night my ward threw me a baby shower! It was so much fun! One of the mom's of a students in my class this year is also in my ward...she called about a week ago and asked if she could throw me a shower. Since it was last so last minute we decided that we would just all meet for dessert at the Pizza Factory and open presents. I didn't realize that she was going to decorate the restaurant, have games and more! I was so touched...it was so thoughtful of her. There are a lot of fun young girls in my ward who have babies or young families and it was fun for us to get together and be able to talk.

For an update on me...my days are full of wondering and waiting for something to happen. I am only 11 days from my due date. I am so excited for Maddux to get here but I am also anxious about the delivery. I just keep praying that nothing happens at school! I spend the evenings organizing the baby room, having heartburn like crazy and being uncomfortable. I can't sleep either...last night I woke up at 2 in the morning and couldn't go back to sleep until 5. I eventually woke Greg up at 4 and he kept me company for an hour. (He's such a cute husband!) We have another doctors appointment on Monday and we are looking forward to seeing if I have progressed...until then we are are staying close to home...just in case!

Girls Weekend

Greg headed to California this last weekend with a few of his boys from the Cross Country team to race in the Footlocker West Regionals. It was his last race of the year with his team. Only a few boys went and since the race was not to far from where Greg grew up my mother-in-law let them stay at her house!

Since I was going to be by myself... 8 months pregnant... Deidre and two of her best friends came down from Provo to hang with me for the weekend! It was a lot of fun! I'm just thankful that I didn't go into labor, which was a worry of both Greg and I.

When they arrived on Friday night we went to dinner for Candice's birthday! Then we went home, got in our pajamas, and watched The Holiday!

On Saturday we had a storm blow in and it SNOWED!
It was so fun to have them here!! I feel so lucky to have such an amazing family! I was happy though that Greg made it home before any signs of Maddux's arrival! I'm two weeks away from my due date and can't believe we get to meet him soon!! We couldn't be more excited!!
