This is what pregnancy is doing to me- see that, no more wedding ring. The puffy fingers have begun. Now I look like an 18 year old knocked up high schooler. :) Will cankles be next? I could barely the ring off yesterday but thankfully it budged. I'm sure Ron Ackerman is loving this moment since the first time I met him he told me I had sausage fingers. :) (inside family joke).

In other baby news, we had our hospital tour last week. It actually was really cool to see the floor and the rooms and all that. Jon only felt queasy once (this is the tour, mind you. . . lord help us).

We had our neighbors over to watch the Superbowl Sunday night and it was a blast. I actually just wanted to watch it alone with Jon and wasn't really feeling having company come over. . . but it really worked out amazingly. She just had a baby last fall and was able to give me all sorts of pointers and tips. We ended up having such a good time- too bad the awesome Kurt Warner didn't win.

Ohh, I really have so much more to say but I need to get back to work. Hope your fingers aren't swollen for you today.

You actually got pretty far in your pregnancy before having to remove your rings!! Congrats!! And at least you didn't have to have it cut off (my sister did) :) Do you have a back up plan if Jon can't make it through the birth? Do you have another coach lined up :) haha!
Keep taking those walks and enjoy a steamed milk with vanilla from Starbucks - YUM!!

Hugs!

I know it- we are considering having my mom in the room as well. . . just in case. . .
So what is this steamed milk you are referring to- is it basically a decaf latte? Because that's usually what I get- but I'm always looking for better drinks!

Awww, sausage fingers! That was the first thing I thought about when I saw the picture! :-)
And congrats on the swelling. I agree with Erin - I think you've made it pretty long before swelling. With my first pregnancy, I had my rings sized UP at least twice. (Thankfully it was free!) Come to think of it, I don't recall if I ever had my rings sized back down...Sad day...
I'm excited to see you in three days!

I've known Jay for 20 years and yet didn't know until about 2 weeks before Brooklyn was born that he feared greatly that he would pass out in the delivery room. He doesn't do so well with bodily fluids of any kind apparently -- my poor sweet husband had to clean up my vomit when I transitioned at home (my labor was FAST!). We got to the hospital, and he told them "I might pass out" so they made him sit in a chair next to my bed. The midwife at one point said, "Jay, do you want to see the head?" and the nurse was like "No, he said he might pass out!!!" But he did end up looking at one point, and he didn't pass out! So good luck to Jon:) Just be sure he sits down and stays up by your head -- hopefully, that'll do the trick:)
