34 Weeks

This week I have hit the 34 week mark in our pregnancy.  We have been having weekly non-stress tests at the doctor's office just to make sure our little man is doing well.  He has passed all the tests so far.  This week when I went in for the test, he had the hiccups.  It was cute to hear them on the machine.  They were so loud I had to reach over and turn down the volume on the machine. 

Jason and I have been trying to get our house ready for the new baby.  This past week we repainted the kitchen and Jason installed a new glass sliding door for our patio.  Next Friday we will get our new floor put down and then we can start putting our kitchen back together.  We will need to order countertops still, but I can live with the ones we have for now.  We will eventually need to get a new kitchen table as well.  Once the floor is installed we'll need to put up chair rail around the room and new baseboards around the new flooring.

Most of the other rooms are already completed.  We still need to get trim put up around all the new windows.  It's just been a nightmare with that.  It seems like such an easy thing to do, but it still isn't done after a year!! 

I need to start making my list of things that still need done before the baby comes.  I keep all these mental posts in my head, but I know I will forget if I don't write them down.  So a list needs to get started.  I'm thinking of hiring a cleaning person to come in a few weeks to deep scrub all the woodwork and walls in the house- just because my belly is too big to be crawling on the floor all day.  I also need someone to come scrub our shower/tub-- I could probably do it, but who knows when!  I'm planning to make a shopping list of things we will need while I'm off work, just because I really dread the thought of going out in the cold!!  We will stock up on everything before our little guy arrives! 

Not much else is new.  Today I attempted to clean up the house a bit so I can relax a little this weekend.  I have to work tonight and tomorrow night, but have Sunday off.  Jason and I will go to church Sunday and then head to the chili cook off out at the Fort Museum.  Hopefully the weather cooperates.  My dad is also coming up this weekend- so it will be good to see him.  AND it's my mom's birthday on Sunday!!  Unfortunately, she won't be able to come up here to see us! 

Next weekend Jason and I will be announced at the church as new members.  It should be interesting.  We have to write a paragraph about ourselves for the church newsletter... Guess who will get to do that?!?! 

Well, it's time to finish getting ready for work!! 

P.S.- for those of you wondering what we plan on naming our little guy, we have decided on Mason Benjamin Hanna.  We came up with the name Mason by combining our names- Jason and Megan.  We also felt like Benjamin should be part of his life and that's how we got his middle name.  I was a little leary at first because Mason sounded so much like Jason, but the meaning behind his name outweighed that thought.  So little Mason Benjamin will have a part of all of us with him- forever!


  1. Megan, I think it's very specail to have all three of your names combined and I LOVE it! Very cute!!

  2. I don't think you could have picked a better name! LOVE Mason Benjamin!!!

  3. Love the name and the meaning! Perfect!!!
