Hello December

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.

On another note, if your a BLM please visit Tina's blog and check out the 25 Days of Giveaways. I am honored to be part of the giveaway team this year, I believe my day is the 20th. Last year this was one thing I looked forward to because all the giveaways are truly from the heart and from another mother who understands the heartbreak. She has 2 giveaways posted today, go enter yourself and meet some new mamas!

I think this is so great and excited for you. I think he will be 6lbs even and 20 inches long. Boy Boy oh big boy if you went full term he would be at least 10lbs. He is strong and healthy such a great thing cant wait to see his picture.
