Baby Girl Update

At the latest, five weeks from tomorrow morning I will be holding our sweet little baby girl. I hope she has a name by then and yes, we are still having a tough time deciding on one.

Just wanted to update a few things -

Her scheduled delivery is for Oct. 15th at 8am. Yes, in just five short weeks it will be the middle of October. Seems like the last few weeks have flown by. I know with school starting, the next few weeks will fly by as well.

Her room is still coming along. Not done yet but we will get it done in the next week or so. I love the color and my mom is making the sweetest bedding. I love it all and although, she wont be sleeping in there for several months, can't wait to see her in there.

Fin is rather confused with it all. He still insists it is a boy and did not like that Papa painted his room pink (really lavender but hey, he is two!).

Carson told me the other night in the car - he wanted to get her a music box. I said that that would be a beautiful gift to get her for her bday. So, in the next 5 weeks, I have to get Carson shopping to find a nice music box for her. I have no idea where he got this idea but thought it was beautiful.

I have NST's twice a week now. I am feeling good and have not had any issues. The NST's were started at 32 weeks soley based on my history of pre-ecclampsia. I am hopeful that I will not get pre-ecclampsia with this baby. Things are just so different and I feel so good, I am confident that the outcome will be different. Things can change quickly so I am glad that they do these tests to take good care of us. With Fin, at this point I was a mess and miserable as well. I got the sweetest boy in the end but, was one crabby, swollen and sore mama.

I have another ultrasound next week. I can't wait to see what her 3d pics look like. I will post them if I can.

Other than that, just getting bigger and bigger! She is really active and that is my favorite part.

So, it is official - 5 weeks and counting!

Love you - E

Yay, she's almost here! Don't worry about may take time for him to come around, but he will get used to having a little sister, even if he prefers to call her "brother". How sweet of Carson...a music box with a peaceful tune to help her sleep is a perfect gift. Congrats! And I hope you continue feeling good!
