It's Getting Closer

I can't believe I am a month away from my due date. YIKES!

I went to have an ultrasound on April 8th and was told I was measuring right on track for a May 17th due date. My "official" due date is May 20th so that's nothing to be concerned over. On April 9th I had to go back for my now weekly appointment. My insurance won't pay for an ultrasound and a doctor's appointment on the same day. Weird! Anyway, the nurse let me know I was measuring at 36 weeks even though I was 35 weeks. She said I had been measuring a week early the entire pregnancy. Today is April 21st so I am now less than a month from my "official" due date. I had a C-Section with Christian but my doctor felt fairly confident I could have vaginal birth this time around. Then I found out the hospital doesn't allow VBACs anymore so I may have to have a C-Section after all. I'm supposed to have an appointment on Friday to talk with my doctor and see what we need to do. If I have to have a C-Section I could have a baby much sooner than expected. All of this is making me a little nervous. It's been 12 years since I had a baby in my home. I have so many emptions going through me right now. I'm scared yet excited. I'm nervous. Anxious. Happy. Tired. You name it. As Jason and I lie in bed last night I went to turn to my side (I'm a side sleeper) and it took me a good 3 minutes to turn from my back to my side and Jason just laughed at me. I looked over at him and said, I'm miserable. This belly does not seem to be any bigger then it was before we started this journey but it's certainly fuller and harder. The countdown is on!!


  1. That's crazy. So the doctor said you could have a VBAC, but the hospital won't allow it? That doesn't even make sense. But at least that means it will be sooner rather than later! I really excited for you and I just know she is going to be adorable!

  2. YAY!! I can't wait to meet the little lady. I know you're nervous...but I'll be there to give you a pedicure, rub your legs or whatever needs to be done, just like I was when Christian came. I love you and can't wait to experience this with you! You're going to be great and this is going to be a blast!

  3. Oh I am so excited to see this Lil' Princess! She is going to be one Lucky girl! I have seen Christian with kids and he is going to be a Huge Help! I can't wait to see is she going to have red hair, blonde hair...? Oh she is going to be Darling! I want to hold her any time you need a rest! I will stand in line!
    Good Luck. I hope you have my number into your phone incase I can be of any help. I love you! Your in my thoughts and prayers! Just thinking about you makes me....
    1st Jealous
