Week 38

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Well the Dr. moved our due date back to Dec. 29th because Miss Emma is measuring a week behind & also because I don't seem to be making any progress.  I've been dilated to 1 cm since the end of week 36, however we are beginning to thin out!  YAY!  The Dr. said we shouldn't expect her early, so we still have a few weeks ahead of us.  However, I believe that the good Lord is in control and this child will come whenever He is ready for her.  I'm praying it's sooner rather than later, but I also believe that He is trying to teach me patience, so we shall see.

Not sleeping much these days.  Sunday night I didn't go to bed until around 3am & was wide awake at 7:30am.  Then last night I woke up at 4:30ish to some pretty intense contractions that last until about 8:30 & that was it.  I guess she is just teasing me.

My family is coming down this weekend so we can do Christmas with them.  I'm super stoked because it will be my brother's first time to visit the Mr. and I since we moved into our house.  After the weekend, we get super busy with more holiday plans.

I hope you & yours have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Let's not forget the reason we celebrate!  Hopefully my next post I will be introducing you to the baby!

It's Finally December!!

Thursday, December 2, 2010

I can't express how excited I am that we have finally reached December!  First of all, I absolutely love the holidays.  I'm a Christmas baby-December 20th, so it's always been my most favorite time of the year.  I love getting together with family and friends to reminisce about the year we had.  I love the smells of the holidays, the food, and celebrating the birth of Christ.

This year is extra special though because Miss Emma will be making her grand appearance into this world. The Mr. and I are so excited, anxious, and nervous.  We have now hit 37 weeks, so she could be here anytime now.  I went to the Dr. on Monday and we have now began the fantastic once a week appointments to be checked!  As of Monday, I am about 50% effaced, and just barely starting to dilate.  We go back again on the 6th for our last sonogram. I can't wait to see her-it's been too long since we last saw her sweet little face.  I'm anxious to see how big she is measuring and what the Dr. projects her weight to be.  We are praying for a healthy baby girl, but also for her to be here early.  I know that sounds selfish, but being a Christmas baby myself, I know what it's like for your birthday to be overshadowed by the holidays.   But I know the good Lord has a plan for her, and He is probably teaching me patience, so whenever He's wants her to get here, and whenever she is fully cooked-she will arrive!

 But sweet Emma, Mommy & Daddy are ready for you. Whenever you are ready, we can't wait to meet you! We love you so much already!
