Big milestones today guys! We are happy and ecstatic to report some news.
I had my very last “every two week appointment” today with my OBGYN.
I will now be seeing her every week until Josie’s birth.
We also had the last ultrasound of this pregnancy to check Josie’s growth. We are happy to report that our little bundle is already an active, moving, kicking and punching 6 pound cutie! And still putting on those pounds up until the day she welcomes us.
Today I also had the first vaginal exam/cervix check as well as the last of the blood work and testing for GBS.
Wow! I feel so overwhelmed with excitement and joy that we’ve made it this far. How can I even express all this joy?
But the most exciting news? I’m dilated 1-2 cm’s already! Holy smokes! I am so excited. We are so excited. My doctor is so excited!
And boy, did my doctor express her excitement for us. As she had her fingers in the birth canal feeling for my cervix, she literally jumped for joy as her voice was filled with anticipation and said, “Oh my Stacy, oh my gosh, you’re 1-2 cm’s already! This is great news!”
I reminded her that my mom was late with my sister (her first child), could have been late with me (doesn’t remember), and was late with my brother (he was a 10 pound baby). I also mentioned to her my fear of a tear and how I may follow my mom’s footsteps and be late as well.
Afterwards, Bobby and I just sat there in amazement thinking and discussing about how these 35 weeks have flown by so quickly. And how blessed we are to be parents (soon). We hugged each other tight as we were waiting for the elevator as I said, “I can’t wait to do it again!” He just nodded his head and said, “me too!” with a great big smile on his face. We are so ready to be parents and the tears of joy today cannot even begin to express how grateful I feel.
We can’t wait to meet our daughter.
