Well, I've blogged so many times in a row now It's hard to keep count. Why isn't Tiffany blogging anymore you might ask? Good question. I just don't know, I can only speculate. But a good hint might have something to do with this picture.
Let me give you an update on where she is right now. Today, Saturday, she is 11 days from her due date. But you probably already knew that from looking on the right side of our blog, not to mention the paper chain that you made at your home so you can keep track on your own when our baby will be due.
Since Wednesday she's been having contractions. For the first day or so they were around 10-15 minutes apart. They weren't hurting her, but they were coming none the less. In the past day and a half the frequency has increased to, on average, about 7 minutes apart and the intensity has also increased. From the looks of things, this probably is labor.
Then yesterday afternoon the frequency of the contractions backed off to 10 minutes again, but the intensity continued to go up. Last night Tiff wasn't able to sleep very well and she is getting more and more tired from these contractions that are making her stomach, back and thighs very sore. Those of you who have gone through birth, (like me, mine was a kidney stone. Those count I think.) know what kind of pain this can be.
So that's the latest on that. We may go into the hospital today, it may be tomorrow, it may be next week, we just have to wait for the contractions to be consistently 5-7 minutes apart. We're hoping that's sooner rather than later, but neither one of us have very much control over it.
Here's the latest on the names we're thinking - at least from my perspective, which by the way, is Tiffany's perspective as well.
In no particular order other than what we like the most right now :)
1. Ellie Rose Evans
2. Megan Rose Evans
3. Abby Elizabeth Evans
4. Jessica Alba
5. Katie Ann Evans
6. Tom Hanks
7. Tiffany Ann Evans Jr.
So those are the names we like right now. We may switch things up at the last minute like we did last time, we'll see.
Here's some limited video from a Media Football game I took part in this last Wednesday. Our team got smoked, but once again - our team's MVP. I scored our only touchdown as well as two point conversion. The highlights are only from the first half, and the touchdown came at the end of the game. Our quarterback is a pro quarterback from the Boise Burn, an Arena Football team. I hope you enjoy.
And here are some pictures of the kids to enjoy. These were taken at what the kids call the BIG PARK. There's a splash pad and a bunch of stuff for the kids to do.
