It's December, bring on the cooler weather, less humidity oh and a sweet little boy set to arrive in 9 days! I woke up this morning, held my belly and thought to myself, holy cow... we made it!
30+ weeks ago, I never believed I would get to December pregnant, shoot I was hopeful to get to Halloween. But here we are 9 days away! It feels like such a huge accomplishment and I am so damn proud of ourselves! I just want to jump up and down and dance in the middle of the street praising the Heavens for this time. I am so thankful.
I had my last scheduled ultrasound with Vicki today, praying there is no reason to see her in the next 9 days. It was weird to say, I won't see you in 2 weeks, instead... We will see you in 9 days with a baby you don't need a machine to look at! It feels like I graduated today! She has been amazing and a huge part of this journey with us. We've only had 654,009 scans with her!
Oh I guess I should mention, he measured 5lbs 11oz! I wonder what he will be next Friday!!! Any guesses?
I'm just happy it's December! I'm thrilled I am still pregnant. I'm thankful for the amazing OB and team that has dealt with me the past 9 months and most of all...
I am so damn excited!
My BP was great today, no protein and BPP & NST was decent. I am on contraction watch until next week, it's pretty much the only reason we would bail early due to my vertical c-section last pregnancy. Unfortunately it puts me at risk for uterine rupture if I am having true contractions, which is also the reason for my early c-section at 37 weeks exact. Luckily, I barely contract on NST's so I am hoping it stays that way until Friday!
One more appointment with my OB next week and one more visit to MFM and he will be here before we know it!
I get emotional thinking that this might really happen for Chris and I next week, just so surreal. The nerves are setting in, the excitement is getting out of control and the nesting, well... I can't stop! I only have a few more things to do and I will post his finished nursery.
