We are in the final stretch

We have hit the final leg of this race we call pregnancy. I am now 30 weeks and I get to go see the doctor every 2 weeks. Its so nice because by the time I get around to telling everyone I know all the good news from one doctor appointment it's time for the next appointment with more updates! It is so fun!

We went to the doctor on Tuesday. His heart rate was great, 155 bpm, I am finally on the weight gain track and am averaging the normal 1 pound a week. We also got to have a measurement ultrasound to see an approximation of how big he is. Based on the measurements he is measuring 30 weeks 2 days, and I was 30 weeks 3 days, so perfectly on track. He is measuring about 3 pounds 7 ounces. Greg looked up online how this could possibly predict where he will be at birth. Nolan should double weight by full term, 37 weeks, and that would put him at 6 pounds 14 ounces. I can definitely do that. However, he will probably come later and we estimate if he comes at 40 weeks then he could be at around 7 pounds 7 ounces. I am thinking I can do that, as long as he doesn't go much bigger. I canNOT do a 8 plus pound baby. So we shall see how nice my little boy will be to me, his mommy. I want him to be tall like his daddy, but am all for him growing once he is out of my uterus :)

We have decided to get a pool going on multiple things concerning Nolan. You can guess as to date of birth, time of birth, weight and height. Just post your guesses and we will see who wins! I am guessing he will be born October 12th at 10:17 pm weighing 7lbs 1oz and being 20.5 inches long. I don't know why I feel those numbers but I do. Let's see how good my mother's intuition is already. No matter what he will come out being he must fit into this...

Greg and I decided before getting pregnant even the first time that He gets to "brainwash" the boys towards UT and I got the girls for Baylor and/or TCU :) Nolan better start practicing putting his horns up now!

Now on to the nursery. We have added some bulldog touches. Here are some pictures!

I purchased the prints from etsy and bought the frames from Aaron Brothers. 
I painted the trim grey to match other grey accents. 

I ordered the bulldog print from etsy and again the frame is from Aaron Brothers. 
I cut the print too short so I had to add ribbon to cover the extra space. Oops. 

Now we are just waiting on the hutch! I can't wait. I love sitting in the room and admiring where our little boy will sleep. I can't wait to see him and be able to hold him and rock him to sleep in the room, change his diaper and just play with him in there. 


  1. Hey, what about his U of H socks? Don't I get any time at all!?! Oh, we'll, for a second choice, UT is ok!
    The room looks great and I'm so impressed with your talent. . . can't wait to see him and y'all and the room in November!

  2. Y'all have done such a good job on his little room. Love that you had a vision and you've carried it through! Even though I'm not necessarily at UT fan, that little outfit is precious! (A little note: Before our first grandson was born, his daddy swore his son would not wear OUTFITS! He did, though...heehee)

  3. I forgot to add...the hutch has arrived and we will put it up this weekend! Also I am making a wall mounted bookshelf that I am making from scratch, yikes! As well as making a bulldog printed pillow. And my mom ordered a bulldog chandelier, and that has come in too!!! So exciting!
