Full Term!!

Today I am 37 weeks and full term, hallelujah! Wow, I felt like it was never going to get here this go round! Yes, I am beyond huge...
(Again, please excuse the photo...although I got showered this morning, there was no time for hair or make-up)

We had our 37 week check-up and our ultrasound yesterday, so two appointments (totaling a wait of like 2 hours) phew..thankfully hubby took off yesterday so he came with me to knock out both...my OB appointment went same ole same...fundal height is measuring right on track at 37 weeks and blood pressure was great...aside from the startling fact that I am up from my starting weight of 103 to now 148...(yes that's right 45 pounds, YIKES)...I guess that's why I'm waddling...Oh well, I gained 50 with Joshua so I guess I just put on that weight...Good thing it comes off super quick!...So since I am going in for a planned C-section at 39 weeks, the only way I would have her earlier is if I went into labor on my own so they checked me for dilation, and I was not dilated just cervix really thinned...so we'll see if she'll stay in for two more weeks or come earlier..

Then we had our ultrasound appointment just to check up on her growth and the cord, and everything looked great still...she measured 36/37 weeks all around and weighed in at 6 lbs 10 oz...(although they said it can be off up to a pound in either direction)...but she looked great, super duper stuffed in there poor thing...the cord is still borderline right on the edge...so while technically he said I COULD do a vaginal delivery since it is not a full blown velamentous insertion he said, my OB is still going with the safer route is a C, so we're definitely just going to still proceed in that direction to be on the safe side.

So now we just wait, and see when she wants to grace us...Unless she decides to come earlier, November 3rd is the date! We're completely ready for her...our hospital bag is all packed, hers is packed, all her clothes washed and hung...carseat is installed...check, check!...I seriosuly cannot stop nesting, I swear all I want to do all day is clean and clean some more...at least my house is spotless...hurry up now baby!
