33 - 37 Weeks

Wow. Time has gone so fast that I haven't been able to keep up with my blog at all. Not sure how many people are even reading anymore, but here's a quick catch up. It's crazy, crazy, crazy that we have just 10 days left until my scheduled c-section! Ahhhhh!

It feels like just yesterday I got the call from Dr. A telling us we had just one normal embryo. What a mix of emotions - so heartbroken that only one was normal and so elated that she was a girl. And then being terrified if she would stick around. What a wild ride. I am just so happy to have made it to this point and to soon be a family of four!

35 weeks - Christmas!

At a friend's wedding. I was pretty excited to actually get to wear this maternity dress :)

36 weeks at my family's ranch

37 weeks

How far along.... 37 weeks and 4 days. One last OB appointment on Friday and then my c-section is scheduled for the 23rd. Only 10 days left!!!! I guess there is still a chance of going into labor before then, but I'm doubting it.

How am I feeling.... Good, especially for this far along! The heartburn can be intense, but nothing Tums and Mylanta can't fix. I'm peeing every minute. I have some sweet cankles going on, but I've been wearing my compression socks to work and they help a lot. I've been sleeping pretty good, only waking once or twice to pee. And then there's the giant belly. It looks like I avoided any new stretch marks though, so that's nice. My Mom and I are going to the spa tomorrow for massages - I can't wait! I also scheduled a mani/pedi for next Tuesday. I'm getting in all the pampering I can before she arrives, plus I thought girly nails would be fun for her arrival :)

How is baby doing.... It's crazy this time because I haven't needed any extra monitoring, which is a good thing, but it feels like I haven't seen her in forever. She's moving like she is supposed to and my belly keeps stretching with her growth, so I assume all is well. We are so, so excited to meet her! We are all wondering what she will look like and if her personality will be like her big brother. Grayson is also very excited to meet her and lifts up my shirt every day to give her a kiss, say hi and see if she is moving. Melts my heart!!!

Milestones, etc.... 
We've reached full term! And the countdown to her arrival is just days away now. I keep saying and typing it, but how did this pregnancy go by so fast?!?!

Grayson moved to his big boy room and bed (with Thomas the Trains bedding!) a week and a half ago and it's gone really well. He loves it and sleeps great still every night. The weekend naps weren't too bad either, just had to make sure he understood it was time to sleep, not play. We made a lot of progress on both of their rooms, so they each have their own space. We also set up the pack 'n play bassinet in our room. Her clothes and blankets are washed. We bought a new infant seat for her and will install it this weekend. I just need to pack my hospital bag and we are ready!
