A happy Friday
I am almost giddy with excitement as I am starting to really believe I am going to actually have a baby...Dr. Korotkin said that even though he knows we won't be 100% confident till we hold our baby that he believes we can start getting excited. I don't want to jinx anything here but I also don't believe in jinxing this - God is in control and I have felt him giving me so much peace this past week. I do believe it was the longest week of my life but the laying around and letting everyone help me really made a difference with my braxton hicks...today I wasn't even having any so we didn't even get on the monitor in Dr. Korotkin's office. I even tested the waters a little today and went to the grocery store this morning and still nothing. My cervix hasn't changed at all and the nurse said my stitches are so high up and completely holding things tight. My favorite part of today (besides getting good news) was the minute they put the probe on my belly they got a perfect profile of the baby and it took my breath away with how much it looked like Jeff - for those who saw Katelyn when she was born she came out looking so much like Jeff it was scary:)! I thought maybe this baby would look like me but it looks like it could be another little Jeff! I am 5 days away from passing the point where I lost the girlies so next Friday when I see Dr. Korotkin I can actually be excited about passing the first milestone in my list of milestones! Last night I found this baby swing on Craigs List that I wanted to buy so I went to email the lady to see if it was still available and she emailed me right back to say she had it still...I thought I would get it but went to email her back and was sweating and shaking so I realized I am not ready to go far enough to buy anything yet...I will get there. I think I will wait till the end of September when I am closer to 28 or 30 weeks. I am dying to know what the baby's gender is but I am not going to find out, I have made it this far and I really do want to excitement - as if actually making it to term won't be exciting enough for me. I did find a gender neutral nursery that I really like so I think maybe in October we can start doing some things. We'll see. Anyways, I just wanted to give everyone an update on the baby and myself. Every one's prayers are being heard and we so thank everyone for praying for us right now.
