I can't believe how quickly the last 4 weeks have flown by. It's so hard to believe that we only have about 4-5 weeks left and then our lives will change so drastically once again. I was holding my breath as I got to and passed week 34 (when I had Aby), and now this week is almost over and once it is this will be the longest I've ever been pregnant. It's like uncharted territory =)
Last week I had a great Dr. appointment. There had been no changes whatsoever in dilation. I'm really thinking these shots are working. Of course Dr. Spears did say that if for any reason I did start dilating and go into labor that they wouldn't stop me, and we obviously know the probability of her being able to go home instead of a hospital stay is pretty high. That's obviously not what we want, but is encouraging. She did take a guess at how much she is weighing, and she thinks that she is about 5 1/2 lbs. (about the size of a honeydew melon) Mac wasn't much bigger than that, so if I can go a few more weeks, then I'll have a "giant" baby. =) Ok, giant for me!!!!
I'm dealing with some insomnia. I do have a pregnancy app that has chat forums that I read when I can't fall asleep. It's kind of fun to read what other women are thinking who are in my shoes. Caedance is still one busy little girl. It's still amazing to watch my stomach roll around. But at the same time can be painful as she seems to try and push some body part out of my sides =)
The girls have really started asking when she's going to come live with us. And their faces light up when I tell them it won't be long now. They are over the moon excited to meet her and they always talk about what color eyes and hair she will have. Aby and McKinley look so different, that I can't even imagine what Caedy will look like.
I start weekly appointments this week, so hopefully we will get good news again. I'd really like to wait until the first week of September. This is actually possible since I have 2 shots left, and can possibly get one more after that. I actually think it be really cool for her to be born on the 10th. Then her bday would be 9-10-11. We definitely wouldn't have issues remembering her birth date.
Everything seems to be in place. The nursery is ready, all bags are packed, the only thing left to do is put the car seat in the car. So, for now we will wait "patiently". Luckily there are other activities to keep us busy and our minds from too much thinking =)
