37 Weeks and....

WE HAVE A DATE! Boy oh boy have I been looking forward to this post! Today's post is later, because I knew I was going to the Dr. this afternoon and we might discuss dates :) Well... we did :) As of right now... Jordan and I will go in Tuesday, October 12th. We aren't going in until that evening, so the D-Day (Delivery Day) will most likely be Wednesday, October 13th. I have to say we are both ecstatic! It's so nice to have a date. With this being our first baby, there is so much we cannot plan for... we don't know what in the world to expect. So, we are glad that we have a date... a time that we can prepare for as much as we can. Other than setting D-Day... my doctor's appointment went pretty well. However, we did get bad news... my cervix hasn't changed... AT ALL! This is really frustrating, I'm not going to lie, as much as I love the idea of being induced, I do not like the idea of being induced without my cervix having changed at all. So... I will continue doing all the "tricks in the book" and hopefully by October 12th, my cervix will have changed a little bit.

I did ask Dr. Daniel how much he thought she weighed. He mashed and pushed on my belly, asked Jordan and I how much we weighed when we were born, and he estimated she would weigh in the mid-to-high 7lbs range. He felt right now she was in the high 6's or low 7's and we still have a little under two weeks to go. Ada's developments have pretty much slowed way down. She's basically just practicing for life outside of my womb. She's breathing, sucking, sleeping, etc.

The nesting is definitely still there. I'm pretty much as ready as I can be. Mine and Jordan's plan is just to enjoy the next 12 days together. After all, in 12 days, life as we know it will change drastically. It will never be just the two of us again.

The nursery is 99.9% finished... we waiting on one special touch... her quilt :) As soon as we get that, I will post pictures. Until next Thursday (which will be my LAST post before my sweet baby girl is here)... have a good weekend!
