37 week appt.

14 08 2009

We are 37 weeks!  I can’t really believe we are already this close to having a baby. Owen came 1 week from tonight and Isaac and Grace during that next week.  So hopefully we will have a baby here very soon.

I am still only 1 cm ish.  I have never dilated early so this isn’t a big surprise to us.  I am still having contractions and lots of pain.  I pray that this baby comes soon so that I am not in so much pain all the time.  I have tested positive for the strep B for the first time ever.  This means I will have to be on antibiotics for at least 4 hours before delivery.  She told me to make sure I am at the hospital early and not to wait around at home too long.  Deciding when to go in is such a hard decision now, this just made it a little harder.  I don’t want to wait too long, but I don’t want to go too early either and have to labor at the hospital too long.

I feel good other than those complaints, I am so excited to welcome this new addition to our family.  I am so excited to see if it is a boy or a girl and what he/she looks like.  Will it be another Gracelyn or a blond/red like the boys?  Oh the fun of a new life coming to your family.

Just an update, hope everyone is having a good week.
