Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

Time to Leave the Office

Well after much back and forth with my doctors I've finally agreed to be taken out of work. I compromised with them to stay home the last month - December. So, my last day at work is going to be November 30th. It was a difficult decision because as most of you know - I like to work, love my job and am always busy!!!! It's going to be really strange but I'm sure I'll manage.

I know myself - I'll be doing work from home - I'll be so bored doing nothing but waiting for Nathan! Thank God its the holidays! I can bake cookies or something. I may just gain another 30 pounds in December!!! Just kidding! :-)

Our 8th Month Appointment

I went to the regular OB this morning and everything is remaining fine. I lost a pound and no one said anything so I'm assuming its fine. As long as Nathan keeps growing that's really all that matters.

While monitoring his heartbeat this morning I was able to hear my own heartbeat, which was kind of cool and strange all at once. Nathan's heartbeat was fast and mine was slower.

Another indication that things are moving along -- his heartbeat has moved. At last check he was butt down and we were always able to monitor him on the right side of my belly. Today his heartbeat was found just below my belly button. I'm hoping that means he is turning.

We see our specialist and our regular OB again next Monday for a weight check and more heart rate monitoring. I have no doubt that Nathan is growing big and strong because he is kicking the crap out of me lately!!! :-) Although, the doctor called him petite this morning! I started cracking up. I never thought of him as petite - woman are petite - men are not.

Well, we have finally order Nathan's furniture and it should be here in a week or so. Danny picked it out and its just awesome! We love it. I am really excited to begin putting his room together. I may go this weekend and buy his curtains and lamp so that I have them when the furniture gets here. I also have some artwork by one of Danny's favorite artists that I need to have framed so I can get that done too.

Time is going so fast! Nathan will be here before we know it!! YEAH!! Danny and I can't wait to meet our son.

Till next week!
