Baby Pool & Other news

Alright, I know I still have like 7 weeks, but I had a dream last night that is inspiring this post. Last night I dreamed that I was in the Dr.'s office and he decided to induce me on the 12th. I think it was the 12th of June, but I'm not sure. I'm trusting my instincts that our little girl will be born early, as I've felt that way this whole pregnancy. I've also thought it was a girl from the moment I found out I was pregnant. My other dreams about this pregnancy were right, like when I dream it was a girl, so I'm trusting this one. Dr.'s due date is June 18th. So here's my guess. Birth Date: June 12th, dark brown wavy hair, around 7 or 8 pounds, about 21 inches long. I'm guessing she will be born in the morning. Ryan's Guess: June 26th(his birthday), around 8 pounds, about 24 inches long, born at night. I'd like to open a baby pool to all those who would like to place a guess. There will be some sort of prize, although I haven't yet decided what it will be. Either leave your guess as a comment on this post or send it to me in an e-mail. More exciting news: Our dear friend, Aly Willis is currently an intern at a photography studio here in town. She called me a few weeks ago, and told me that she needed to practice using the studio and wanted to know if I wanted some maternity pictures taken. So tomorrow, after work, I'll be heading over there to get some pictures taken. I'm excited to see how they turn out, and I'm hoping my belly will look round. (Sometimes she curls to one side and she makes my belly lopsided) So I'll post those once we get them back. The end of this week, my little sister, Natalie, will be leaving for Italy for a study abroad. Please pray for her safe arrival. I will be unable to reach her by phone for the next some odd weeks. We're still trying to figure out how to tell her she has a niece, once the baby is born. That should be interesting. While Ryan was working this week, I watched the movie, Juno. I don't know if it was just me being pregnant and the movie being about a teenage pregnancy, that hit me so hard, but I've watched it 3 times and every time I cry for the last 30+ minutes. So if you plan to watch it, bring a box of tissues. I'll be heading to the Dr. on Wednesday. Hoping that she is still head down (fear of breech baby) I've been told that as the baby gets bigger, they move less. Well that is not the case with our little kick-boxer. I feel like she's been moving constantly for the past few weeks, which is making sleep very difficult. I'm also having contractions almost daily, albeit not in ANY sort of pattern. We need to keep her in for just a few more weeks to avoid her being premature, but after that 37 week mark passes, she will be getting her eviction notice. I've been trying to get my older sister, Jenni, to start a blog, as she seems to be the only one to not hop on this fad train. She has been one to resist fads before, like pointy shoes and boy band obsessions, but this is one I feel she needs to adopt. So in efforts to have other people pester her into creating one, I'm asking for your help. If you are in favor of Jenni starting a blog so you can hear about her baby/family updates, Say," I" (or just post it in a comment, I'll make sure she gets the memo!) Love you all! XOXO, Holly & Co.
