37++ weeks

The good news is that at 37 weeks I can still see my feet. Notice the new pedicure. I thought I should have nice toenails for the delivery.

The bad news is that at 37 weeks the baby is still inside of me. My other babies came at 36 and 37 weeks respectively. I am not a patient person. I am hot and huge and really, really bitchy. (Jed can attest to this). This will evidently be my stubborn child.

It's been a long week of doctor appointments. Last week I had lost 2 pounds and 2 inches from my belly. I had an ultrasound showing very low fluid, so my doctor sent me to another ultrasound the next day to measure the baby, check her vitals and check to see if she was "practicing breathing" - basically to see if she is okay to come out and meet us. Turns out she is huge(well in my baby standards) - she is 6 pounds, healthy and "breathing". However, my fluid was measured again and while low - not alarmingly low..so my doctor decided to let her cook for another week. Yesterday I had another ultrasound and my fluid is even lower again..so I go back to my doctor this morning for a decision.

My current c-section is scheduled for July 25th..so I am hoping we can move this up as I am now stressed about baby...and did I mention I am hot and huge and bitchy?

hang in there! you can do it! I had Charlie at 42 weeks....nearly 9 pounds...aarrgghhhh....six pounds seems puny to me-but then again, I am a much larger girl than you....it's all relative, isn't it? Love the toes!

My prediction is you will not have to wait until the 25th to meet your new little sweetie.

We have reservations and a hotel/waterpark in the cities the 2nd weekend in August, so maybe I will be able to drop by and meet your new princess!

Time to take her OUT! I had low fluid with Sophia and they took her. Don't leave the dr's office till they zip you open. Good Luck, I am hoping for no new blog entries from you for at least a week.

Wow! She'll be here soon! I went through the low fluid thing with Nina when I was 34-35 weeks. Every time I had an appointment, I just knew that was the time the fluid would dip below the threshold and they would take her out! She held on quite a bit longer though, so you never know. I know you're hot and miserable though, so I hope she arrives SOON and healthy!!!

Praying for the safe & healthy arrival of your sweet little princess! And that you will feel good until she arrives!
Fantastic that you can still see your toes...I think I always lost mine around 7 months or so!
