good news/bad news

our appointment yesterday was quite eventful! we were so excited about the chance to see our baby girl and were disappointed when we couldn't tell what in the world was going on on that screen. after swipping the happy wand across my gigantic belly a few times, the ultrasound guy says "that's a breech baby!" a few minutes later he says "that's a big baby!"

so the bad news is our big baby girl is breech. and when i say big, they are estimating 8 pounds 6 ounces which i don't think is super big, but maybe its just big because i'm such a shorty! :) i guess why the breech news is bad news is because i will be delivering by c-section. its not how i envisioned it, but God knew way back when doctors were telling me i would never have children that i would have a baby girl on march 15, 2010 and she would be delivered via c-section. He is good, all the time.

the good news is that our baby girl will be in our arms by lunch time on monday. yes, 4 days from now. monday is bella joy's auntie amanda's 25th birthday! happy quarter of a century to her, huh?! when we found out we were expecting, we joked of the idea that she may be born on amanda's birthday, but never did we think it would really happen that way!

another funny thing, yesterday i was 38 weeks, or so i thought. i promise that when the nurse at dr. d's office gave me my due date, she said it was march 24. but my chart sure does say march 27. so according to them, i'm not 38 weeks until saturday. this obviously doesn't matter even a little bit since we know we are delivering on monday, but still funny nonetheless.

please be praying on monday morning. surgery is set for 9 am. pray for adam. i know he'll be great but i'm sure he'll be nervous for me. pray for bella joy, that she is healthy and learns to nurse quickly. pray for me too, please. i am nervous, but i know that this is the plan that God had from day one and i do find peace in that.
