Come on bebe!

well, dont worry, it will still be a while till baby comes...but a hurting girl can dream :)

37 weeks today! thats a full term baby! we are technically good to go!

Went to the doc last Wednesday and everything looks good. (I will go every Wed. now on) We got an ultrasound and I was so excited to see the precious lil one thats been kicking my ribs. Yep, its head down at least! It was a little uneventful because they do a lot of measuring and the baby is so big its hard to see it actually. Hence, the lack of a picture on here. And then on top of that, baby was not very cooperative and covered its face with its hands pretty much the whole time. But I was so relieved that my fluid levels were normal (unlike with Alex). Praise the Lord. This is the stuff that really matters.
I was NOT so relieved that I am not progressing at all BUT I guess we dont really want the baby to come too early now. Especially not on Feb 29th!! A leap year baby. Wouldn't that be horrible! Well, a baby is never horrible but it would be very unfortunate and you can better believe I will do everything I can to avoid that from happening.
My tail bone hurts really bad now. It's no wonder, the baby is already about 6lbs 9 oz supposedly.
The heart burn is in full effect. Travis says I need a belt dispenser so that Tums are in hand at my every desire. I think he might be on to something big. Million dollar invention that changes pregnant girls lives for forever.
The doc, Travis, and I discussed that the 13th would be a "good" day because 1) its the date of my other kids birthdays- they are both on the 13th- it would be crazy I know 2) its spring break and so "people" will be off but my doc will be working still (she won't be later in the week- yikes)
So glad that everyone else thinks that would be a good day...we will just make that happen, right?!
We will see. and as we have said before, only God knows!

Ellie is OBSESSED with the baby equipment that I am afraid she might leap out of her skin when we have an actual baby in the house. She has been sure to brush up on her baby skills to be ready!

Baby stuff out of the attic and washed, check! Car seat in car, check! A family soooo ready to meet the newest team member, quadruple check!!

How exciting! It would be really cool if #3 was born on the 13th. I can't wait to hear if it is a boy or a girl and the name. I will be thinking of you in the next few weeks hoping for a smooth delivery. LOVE the picture of Ellie's head on your tummy :)

I can't believe your baby will be here soon. I think the last time I saw you, you were only 16 weeks. Crazy! It would be cool if the baby came on the 13th! Hope everyone thing goes well for you in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait to hear about your new little one!!
