Almost 37 weeks!
So we've almost made it to the "full term" mark....time flies! Well, actually it feels like I've been pregnant forever! I'm so thankful that the Lord has given me a healthy pregnancy, and even this far along, I'm feeling great!
This is a picture right before we left for my 36 week doctor's appointment. We had a great appointment this past week and were able to have an ultrasound. Her estimated weight right now was 6 lb 9 oz-which I'm told is usually about a pound heavy when estimated by ultrasound, so she's probably just about to be 6 lb. They've projected her weight to be about 7 lb 9 oz, which really means she'll be in the high 6's. Everything is looking great...except she has decided to flip into the breech/transverse position! That stinker was head down two weeks ago! I guess she still has room in there to do her flips and turns! Praying she decides to go head down, or else we'll probably have a c-section at 39 weeks....which is in 2 weeks. AH!
I'm in crazy mommy mode around the house...making sure we're stocked up on everything and wanting every cabinet and drawer to be organized. We finally finished the nursery this past weekend, so that feels grrrreat! I know that this silence around the house will change in about two weeks...and we couldn't be more excited. Could we have an Easter baby? It looks like it! What a blessing!
For now, Pepper is enjoying the last weeks of being the princess of the house...Smokey doesn't have a clue either poor guy! I know they'll be great with little Sadie when she's here! They'll just have to get used to not being the babies of the house. ;)
