38 Weeks - this is it!

Well, this is it.  I am going into the hospital tomorrow morning, and I will return to blogging sans baby in my belly.  I am getting so excited, but with that is coming a lot of anxiety - mostly surrounding whether or not she'll be okay.  I mean, there's no reason she wouldn't be, but I still worry anyway.  I can't believe that within(ish) 24 hours from now, I will be holding my sweet daughter in my arms and marveling at her beauty and goodness.  I can't believe this is almost over...this has been such a long 9 months for me, and I've complained a lot, but I am really so grateful for every second of it.  I am blessed.

I had another ultrasound today, and Baby Girl is measuring in at 6 lbs 8 oz.  I don't believe it, though - I think she's going to be at least 7 lbs, so we'll see tomorrow for the big weigh in!  I have been EXTREMELY uncomfortable and even in pain at times this past weekend with how big she is, as it is causing me a lot of sciatic nerve pain, but really what's the point of dwelling on all that now?  In less than a day, none of that is even going to matter anymore!

Stay tuned for a post tomorrow, introducing you all to my new daughter.  :)

Your tummy is about half the size of you. Whoa baby! I think she'll be bigger than they say but we'll see!

I can't wait to know if she has your dark hair!
