free at last!

(My sweet caretakers this week.)

Well folks, today was our doctor's appointment.
THE appointment I've been waiting for.

Before I go into the details, I just have to thank a few people.
Let it be known, I have the best friends and church family a girl could ask for.
I had sweet visitors, dinners, and snacks delivered all week!
And to my amazing Husband...
Oh man, you went above and beyond taking care of me while I was on bed rest.
Emmerson and I are lucky, lucky girls.

Alright, the moment you've all been waiting for...
(Well, probably not all of you. Maybe 40% of you guys care to know all the details.)
So this is for you 40%!

We found out that I'm measuring a few days ahead.
Every Wednesday is when I "go up" another week.
So, right now, I'm 37 weeks and 2 days. 
(Instead of 36.5 like we thought.)
Taking after her mother and father's baby days,
Emmerson is going to be a big, healthy baby.
Looking about 8 pounds right now.
I'm thinking she's got her Mama's puffy cheeks.
(And I cannot wait to kiss them!)
Slight problem  inconvenience, apparently I have a small pelvis.
Big baby+small pelvis= (possible) labor problems
Which brought up the "c" word.
Not that it's a scary word, people do it all the time!
But, of course, I was hoping for quick, simple labor/delivery (ha!)
Despite the pros and cons that are running through my mind, 
I'm just ready to see my little girl and I don't care how that happens!

Best news of the day?
Blood pressure is normal and this Mama is off bed rest!
Woo Hoo!

Who's taking me out this weekend?!

All this happy news and just in time for Christmas.
My family comes next week and I'm looking forward to the distraction.
I told Husband today, I want to stop waiting for the day Emmerson comes 
and be present in whatever I'm doing.
This could be our last Christmas "just us" and I don't want to wish it away.

Taking things one step at a time.
(Which will take a Christmas miracle because 
I'm a "plan the next 100 steps before I move" kind of girl.)
