It's Almost Time

I met with my doctor today, and measured at 35 wks, which is a week and a half behind what I should measure. I am scheduled to be induced on Saturday....Wow, how crazy is that!! I have an ultrasound on Thursday, and if my fluid has dropped at all, then I will be induced right then.

I can't believe we are getting ready to meet our baby boy. When I think of everything we went through to get to this point, it just blows me away. There were times when I thought I'd never get pregnant again, and that was a very hard thing to deal with. He truly is our little miracle!! I can't imagine the overwhelming joy I'll feel when I can finally hold him in my arms.

I have loved being pregnant with him. I guess after wanting it so bad, waiting over 3 years, & spending over $20,000 (he is worth every penny!).............you realize how special it really is to be pregnant, to be able to feel hiccups (which he has right now) and all the kicks & wiggles......It's amazing!




I think that we have everything ready for him to come. Here is his crib with the bedding I made. I am really happy with the way it turned out. He and Kennedi will be sharing a room, I'm not thrilled about it, but Kennedi is so excited! She is going to be such a good big sister.




I just want to thank all of you who have left me comments to show your support, and those of you who have been texting me for updates......it really means a lot to me. :-)

I will be thinking of you! I know how that all goes working so hard to get them and paying so much which I agree is worth every penny and enjoying being pregnant for it all to end so soon and for it to be scary! Good luck, I will be checking for updates, I am excited for you.

A. You still hardly look pregnant
B. That bedding is so freaking cute, send me a pattern or something, I still haven't found any bedding I like for Mia!
C. Are you naming him Daxton? That's what Kennadi said...I don't know if you knew, but I think she was playing with your phone and called me by accident. She and Blake talked for 22 minutes!

I can't believe he's almost here either. And to think, I knew him back when he was nothing but a speck in a petri dish... ;)

I hope all goes well and I can't wait to see his cute pictures. And Btw I agree with Lindsey, you look tiny in your pictures and your bedding is amazing.
