Life has been interesting and fun all at the same time.
I had the very best baby shower ever! I also had a surprise one at work! I have felt so much love for me and Baby K. Everyone has been so supportive. My baby shower was awesome, of course there is always one that causes drama and has to be the center of attention. But even through that I was still super happy, giddy and emotional the entire day!
I have started the swelling really bad in my feet when I am working too hard. The body has a way of telling you to slow down. I am still going to the doc twice a week, which is not too bad. I enjoy the fact that I get to hear her heart beating so often. We did have one scare, she was not very responsive one day and I had to have some additional testing. Me and my family were really nervous, but she was a'ok. I have had a few braxton hicks contractions, but nothing too bad. I think all the excitement of family and friends sent my body through a tail spin.
I had a growth ultrasound on the 3rd and she is still growing nicely. She is measuring 6lbs 2ozs. I am so happy she is healthy. I hope I am not the only mom to be, that even at 38 weeks still worries that she will be alright. I still have minimal fears that something could happen to her. I feel so bad for thinking it, because this has been such a blessed pregnancy. So I ask for forgiveness and try to shake off the bad feelings.
Soooooo turns out I have to have a c-section. My cervix is really high. I knew that because my insemination was very painful and took a long time because they had to get to my very high cervix. I never thought it would effect labor and delivery. Well the cervix is high and the pelvic is small. And will make the descending process hard. So, I am having a c-section on Friday, Feb 17th. I am very excited and surprisingly not nervous, YET! I have never been hospitalized so I have no idea what to expect with IV, the stay, and such. I am excited to know she is coming. I can't wait to meet her and see her face!
I stopped working yesterday, which was a little bittersweet. I am actually going to miss those folks :-). But I am glad to have the next week to mentally and physically prepare as much as possible to "officially" be a Mommy! This is my last weekend as a non parent, very surreal feeling. But I am so ready for my little girl. I am very scared of how well I will do with her and if she is a cranky baby. I know I will have a lot of support, but she is my responsibility and that is very surreal. Bottom line.... Ready or not here she comes!!! Stay tuned and please send up prayers for a safe delivery! Thank you all!
