Only 24 days...possibly less!

So my last doctors appointment, nothing much had changed, except that I am now 70% thinned, and still a 1-2. I asked my doctor what he thought as far as when he thinks the time will be....and he forecasted Thanksgiving. That's right, a turkey baby. Originally I was worried about having a baby too close to Christmas, now it looks like I won't have to worry about that anymore. Which means, she could possibly be making her entrance within the next week or two!!!! Super exciting and scary all at the same time. The reality of what is about to be is getting closer and closer.
I've been frantically gathering the last of my baby items needed, cleaning, packing, etc. Not to mention, my accounting class has thrown in a last minute project as well. So I have been trying to get a group together to work on it earlier, rather than later. I'm hoping to get a lot done before she comes. Which is getting harder and harder. Between a few pains here and there, pressure, lack of sleep, and being exhausted with no energy...I've been trying to remind myself to relax a little and enjoy the last little bit of my pregnancy.
I will find out on Friday how things are coming along, and if the doctor still thinks she could be a turkey baby. The nice thing is, is that my doctor is planning on being here over Thanksgiving weekend, just in case if that is when she decides to come. I was worried that he would be out of town, and I would have to have another doctor deliver.
One last thing, the other day Glen looked at me and said that he wishes I would have the baby already, because he can't wait to hold his baby girl! It is so great to have a hubby so excited to have a precious little one. It has also been so nice that he has been so great during the entire pregnancy. He has been really supportive and you sweetie!

35 weeks!

Wow, I can't believe how fast time has flown. I am 35 weeks and counting down....not much longer to go. I have started my weekly appointments. I love going in every week, hearing her heart beat and making sure everything is ok...and getting the latest update on how things are progressing. Today at my appointment I had an ultra sound to make sure she is turned the right way, and she is! The ultra sound also showed that she definitely is still a girl, and that she has hair! It is a good thing, because this girl has already got some bows waiting for her:) The doctor also checked to see how things are progressing. I am dilated to a 2 and starting to thin. I am super excited and can't wait to meet my little girl. I am also starting to get major anxiety. I have started to really stress about getting everything we need, everything cleaned and in order, how labor will go, how Jordan will cope, how I will cope, how school will go (I am due the week of finals), and everything else. Not to mention I have started to have some pressure and pains, not really bad, but enough to let me know that she will be here before I know it. Below are pics that were taken on Halloween. We were a pumpkin...which is really quite fitting for right now. I feel like I'm carrying around a huge pumpkin:) I will keep everyone updated! pride & joy
