Sweet Relief

First off, we are NOT moving!!! Hubby was offered the job in Texas, but the pay was about the same as the pay he gets here, but the insurance cost would have been lots more (over $800 per month for all three of us!?!?!). Plus our current house payment is super cheap since we bought a forclosure so that would be higher there too. Bo basically no dice.

I'm a little sad not to be moving closer to family, but I'm very relieved not to be moving. On that note, we finally put the crib together!!

           34 weeks 2 day & a Crib!!                                   Hubby after his hard work!

It is so nice to be able to start working on his room. Now I just need the time and energy. We are taking Childbirth Prep classes right now so last night we had to drive an hour to the hospital for our tour. It was far more eventful than it normally would be since there was a Code Red (aka fire) in one corner of the hospital. It was all handled quickly, but it made the group of 10 very pregnant ladies quite nervous! Then today we drive down again for our first actual class.

Our town is small and the hospital isn't the best so most people drive down to Santa Fe where there is a much larger hospital. The drive is annoying, but the doctors are much better. Plus my town is so small I know all the family drama of the only OB so its hard to feel confident in her medical skills when I have watched her family crash and burn. I know that this shouldn't matter, but I can't help it.

So we are spending lots of time in the car. It makes for very long days. Today we have class from 6:30 to 8:30 so we will not get home until around 9:30 at the earliest. I'm usually in bed by 9:30. Then on Wednesday morning I get to drive back for a doctors appointment. I'm getting tired of the car (even though it is my awesome new-to-us Kia Soul).

But even though all this driving is annoying, its a relief to have the classes set. Last week they thought they wouldn't be able to run the full class because only 2 couples had signed up and 3 is their minimum to run a class. So I was freaking out. They wanted to do 3 classes instead of 5 and they wouldn't start until March 20th. Thats a bit too close to my due date for comfort (especially since this weekend I was 1 Braxton Hicks contraction away from having to call my doctor). So as much as I might complain, I am really very glad to be hauling my butt to Santa Fe several times each week.


  1. Love the belly pic and crib, looks great! Here via pail and then I realized we are both 34 weeks and having little boys! Well, I will be 34 weeks on Thursday but we are very close! So glad you don't have to go through the stress of moving this late in pregnancy. I always find moving to be so stressful!! Can't wait to follow more of your story as you get to meet your new lil guy! :)

  2. So glad you're not as stressed out and can start setting some things up! The crib looks great, as does your bump :) It's getting close!!

  3. I had to drive an hour to my OBs and my hospital, for me it was worth it to know I was in better hands. You have to do what you have to do!

    And, YAY about putting the crib together and knowing where you're going to be! That's great :)

  4. Totally worth being in good hands!! Yay for your class! I want to hear what they are teaching you. We just had one class...maybe we got gyped! So excited you guys know where you are going to be now! CANNOT wait to see pictures of Fin!
