thats right, 37 weeks. 3 to go. if our baby was born today, she'd be considered full term and boy does that make me smile!!!
i saw dr. d yesterday for my weekly progress report. sorry if this is gross and too much info, but i am just a little over 1 cm and 70%. due to my height and bella joy's size, dr. d has requested an ultrasound for next week to try to get a closer look at her weight and position. i left his office so so thankful because regardless of when she arrives, i'll be looking at her next wednesday at around 2:15 and my sweet husband will be by my side.
dr. d also let me know that at my appointment last week i tested positive for group b strep. this just means that i will have to have antibiotics during labor and delivery. did any of you have this?
i went into my appointment yesterday trying so hard to remember the advice my sweet friend cheye had given me just last week. i was trying so hard to expect nothing. but when he said "still about 1 cm, a little more than last week, but still 1" i won't lie, i was slightly disappointed. it is hard to be so uncomfortable and think that must be leading to progress, but then it doesn't. i do know that her arrival and my progress are no surprise to God. He knows the minute we will hold her for the first time and for that i am thankful too.
so now, we anxiously await seeing our sweet girl a week from today in the form of an ultrasound. and we are ok with that.
