We are about to hit my 39th week of pregnancy this weekend. This means we only have 1 more week before the "DD" (due date). Unfortunately, I do not have any updates on the baby. Our last ultrasound was quick and uneventful (that technician needs a lesson on bedside manner!), we didn't even get a picture! and my 38 week appt. today was also quick and I did not have an exam. So we don't know if my pregnancy has progressed more than 1 cm or not. As the end draws near, I can't help but relive my first labor story over and over in mind. It was such a traumatic but also beautiful experience. I was sad to have almost everything that could have gone wrong, go wrong, but in the end we had the most beautiful little boy in our arms. Hopefully soon "any day now" we will have our beautiful daughter in our arms and I will have all the yucky pregnancy/labor pains behind me!
It has been a long and at times very emotional pregnancy. We had several complications that caused a lot of worries, but we survived! Soon you will entering into our lives, creating a family of four. Even with your active kicks and bumps, I feel blessed to have carried and nurtured you for 9 months. I am very excited (as is your daddy, your big brother Ryan and all our family/friends) to meet you. We can't wait to see what or who you will look like- will you have blond hair and blue eyes like your brother? Will you have your Daddy's bottom lip pout or Mommy's teardrop eyes? We just know you will be beautiful!
Mommy and Daddy are looking forward to all the wonderful little girl things you will bring into our lives, getting to know your personality and watching you grow into a beautiful young lady some day. Your big brother Ryan is getting anxious for you to come out and play. He will teach you so many things!
So as we all patiently wait for that blessed day to arrive (your birthday!), please know that you are VERY much loved. Please come soon so we can show you the world and hold you in our arms!
PS- I know you are probably waiting for Daddy to finish up his projects before you make your grand arrival but Mommy is really starting to get very uncomfortable and the summer heat is not helping...so when you are ready, give me a sign! xoxo
