Updates and pics

So, as to be nice to you, and true to my word, I shall proceed with the updates.

I want to apologize for not letting you know how the captain fared on his first bout of chemo. It went well, as well as chemo can go I suppose. He had waves of nausea all week, but went to work all but one day. Most of the time, he felt fine, but when the nausea hit, he said it was not fun. So we are done until the first of July. Thank you for all the prayers. I am sure that is a huge reason the captain tolerated it so well.

My Dr.'s office called today...no set date for Big Rigg's arrival. But they did switch my next apt. so I would be able to see my doc instead of one of her partners. So hopefully I will be able to talk to her on Friday afternoon and maybe know a more set date. It will not be before the 20th of this month...so about 2 weeks and we get to meet the Riggaroni!

I have the baby's bag packed for the hospital, but not my own...I should get one that, it's just that most of the clothes I want to take I am still wearing...So I am holding off for a little while longer. I do not think there is much chance of me going into labor on my own...I have had no contractions and not even the fake ones...I think my babies like it in there...they would stay as long as we let them. Caden was late and we had to induce...I am sure I am just super comfy. I try to tell Rigg I am very neat and all sorts of fun to get him excited to meet me...but he just arches his back or stretches out a leg as if to say "yeah, yeah , mama, I get it. But I am fine right where i am, thankyouverymuch." So we will just have to wait. That is easier said than done when you have a stomach so large people stare in the Wal-Mart. Oh well, I am sure I deserve it after I stared, most likely, open mouthed, at a teenage girl in skin tight hot pink tapered jeans in the Wal-Mart last month...but seriously people, I am sure she was breaking 12 different fashion rules. I was transported back to the 80's for a split second and came to singing Karma Chameleon.

OK, so the rest of this post is pictures of the past month or so...because you deserve some pics! Enjoy!

Here is the Captain sanding down a table for Rigg's room.
Here is another of the same, but if you look close, you can see his war wound.


There are those toes I painted myself...
And me fixing the sander....
And the puppy, just because he is so darn cute!

I know it probably doesn't help to hear it when you're feeling big, but you look so stinkin' cute! Love the puppy picture too :)

Glad to hear your husband is responding well to chemo. I'm praying for him.

I too have the baby's bag packed but not my own. I think we will just be waiting it out together. I am not feeling anything too exciting either except some feet in my ribs. We should take bets between me, you and Katy (maybe bets was the wrong word). Anyway, you do look cute and I am absolutely sure Rigg is very cozy and comfy in there.

Cari,
Love the pics... you look adorable. What I love most about being this pregnant are the "variety" of looks I get from people out and about. Like the... "your so cute your pregnant" squint and smile. Or the smile and nod that says, "good luck to you girlfriend" or the double take and stare that screams, "are you having twins?" It's sweet how people react to pregnant ladies and gives me a chuckle. Karma Chameleon is a wonderful 80's song. My daughter is wearing earrings that resemble my 80's roots as well! As scary as it sounds, I think it's coming back around. Thanks for the thoughts on prayer, stuff I love to hear. :)

Cari, I don't know you personally but I love to read your blog and pray for you and your husband. Your last post was so beautifully written and brought me to tears. I'm so sorry for the continual grief you experience over losing your daughter. I am praying for the safe and healthy delivery of Rigg, and to echo what these other women have written, you look great! I am also due in the next few weeks, with our second baby. So I totally sympathize with your aches and pains and big belly! Blessings to you and your family today... -Ashley

Cari- your blog is so entertaing, you really crack me up! ;)I am due 1 week after you, so its been fun to follow your oreo cravings and your walmart adventures! I was just thinkin last night that I can't pack my bag b/c I still want to wear those clothes too. So i'm with ya sista!
On the serious side, I am so glad that your hubby is doing so well and I will continue to pray for him (and you)as he goes thru his chemo tx. I will also be praying for a fast and healthy delivery for your sweet baby boy! (i'm having a boy too!my first) You really are all belly! you still have skinny arms, legs and no signs of pregnancy face!! Work it girl! :)
