Aubrey is 2 Months Old

Where has the time gone! It is passing even faster with two little girls to keep up with. Aubrey turned 2 months old last Friday.

Aubrey's Stats

Weight - 11.14lbs (78th percentile)

Height - 22 3/4 (70th percentile)

Things I want to remember about Aubrey at 2 months

- SMILING!! Boy is she a smiley girl

- Eats 5 oz every 3-4 hours

- Sleeping through the night since 6 weeks

- Gave me her first giggle while at the doctor waiting on shots

- Overall a very calm baby. She only fusses when she is hungry.

- Loves tummy time! Even will fall asleep if you leave her there long enough.

Aubrey has been such a good baby. I cant believe I have been luck enough to say that twice. Better quit while I'm ahead. Right?!?

Aubrey's Birth Story

While it is still fresh on my memory I better type up the birth story for Aubrey.

Sunday, January 29th I spent the day at the mall with my mom, sister, and Addison. We literally walked for five hours. I was so determined that this little girl was gonna come out soon. After that we went to my Meme's and then to dinner. While we were at dinner I started feeling crampy but figured it was just soreness from walking. When I got home I decided to relax in a bath before bed.

Around 2 am I was woken by some contractions. They were the good ones that start in the back and wrap to the front. I laid there in bed for about 30 minutes before deciding they were the real deal and woke Matt So he could shower and call my mom. As soon as i got out of bed the contractions went from 8 minutes apart to every 3-4 minutes.

We arrived at the hospital around 4am and had to be monitored in triage. Upon arrival I was 3 cm and after an hour I was 5 cm so we obviously were in labor and they were going to keep us.

We got up to our room and the contractions started to get more intense so I told them to bring on the epidural. It felt like it took them forever to do it because there were three other women ahead of me. Around 7 am the epidural was in and I was feeling great. The nurse wanted to wait and check me but I was feeling some pressure so she checked and I was 7 cm.

I spent the next few hours resting and hanging with the family that came to the hospital. Around 9:30 Aubrey had a dip in her heart rate so the nurse came in and wanted to check me because sometimes the heart rate dips when the water breaks but mine hadn't yet. When she went to check me my water did break and I was at 9 cm. so the nurse started to get ready and called the doctor. Not sure of the exact time I started pushing but I pushed 3 times and she was born.

The labor was very much like Addison's. I know I make most women sick but both labors were very easy to me and quick.

Aubrey Leigh Zaragoza
Born 9:59 am
7 lb 11 oz, 18.5 inches long

I can't figure out how to upload a picture from my iPad but will post some from my phone.

We are absolutely in love with this little girl and her big sister is beyond thrilled she is here and already loves her so much.

38 weeks

Well the date I had Addison (37w 6d) has come and gone. Not surprised but it is hard to believe that by this time with her I was past all of the pregnancy :) Hopefully by this weekend she will be here. My last work day is Friday and I don't want to just sit at home waiting next week. If she isn't here then Addy and I will most definitely be planning some trips out.

Since I haven't done one of these in a while here is my 38 week survey.

How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +16 lbs
Maternity clothes? Pants and some shirts
Stretch marks? None
Sleep: Contractions off and on the past few days so not the best sleep but not horrible either.
Best moment this week: Finding out that I'm now 3 cm and making progress
Movement: Still Alot!!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular. Plan to go to Babes this Friday if she isn't here by then.
Gender: Girl 100%
Labor Signs: No consistent labor pains. Lost my mucus plug and increased braxton hicks. Hopefully its all making more progress.
Belly Button in or out? Flat now
What I miss: not aching. My body just aches all the time. Mostly when standing or walking.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting this little girl. We are ready in every way just need her to come on with it.
Weekly Wisdom: Stripping of membranes can just cause cramps no labor!
Milestones: Just being 2 weeks from due date!

Today's appointment

Had a good appointment today at the doctor. I'm currently 3cm, 50% effaced and her head was really low. While I was there the dr stripped my membranes and I lost my mucus plug. So really anyday now is what her guess was. I have been super crampy since the appointment so I choose to take the afternoon off just in case. I work a good thirty minutes from home and fourth five from Matt's job so i don't want to get stuck out at work with out him and unable to drive my self. Yes, there are others who could take me but in all reality who wants to go in to labor at work. Can you saw awkward??

Well that is it for now. I will keep you all posted as things progress. Hopefully sooner rather than later. :)

Ahh the wait...

I love the surprise of Aubrey picking her own birth date but I hate the wait. Tuesday will be 37w6d which is exactly when I had Addison. So that makes me even more anxious for Aubrey to be here. Although I'm starting to get the feeling she may be in for the longer haul. This time last pregnancy I was miserable, contractions every night, lost my mucus plug, and just down right ready. This time I actually feel ok maybe even good. No where near miserable yet. I have had a few contractions that I think are just mearly uncomfortable braxton hicks and my hips and pelvis are sore but other than that I'm good. Still getting good sleep in between potty breaks. As much as I hope she comes this week that may all be a pipe dream. My last day of work is this Friday though so if I make it till next week Addy and I will just enjoy our time left doing some mother daughter things :)

Well that's all I have for now. Doctors appointment tomorrow and I hope she checks me. Three weeks ago I was 2 cm. so just hoping for a bit more progress :)

Getting closer

Not much to really update on yet. Have had a few good contractions and tons of Braxton hicks but that's about it at this point. Had my 35 week check up last Monday and found out she has flipped and is head down. I'm also 2 cm dilated so that is great. Go back next Monday for my 37 wk exam but I don't think she will check me since she is going out of town that weekend and doesn't want to get anything kick started. After that I will be going to the doctor weekly. If Aubrey is anything like her sister though we may not make it past 38 weeks :)

More to update on in a week or so!!
