Week 39: Watermelon

Holy crap--we made it to WATERMELON!!

Cash may weigh a bit over 7 pounds and 20 inches long.  The belly is heavy this week and I am feeling pregnant.  I will be happy to not have fat girl feet.

I started off my week with pedicures with my 3 of my favorite ladies (so glad you are home Nicole) and Tuesday night got in a hair cut/color.  Wednesday night was relaxing and Thursday my fabulous co-workers had a cake for me and gave us a nice gift card to Target.  It will be helpful when we start buying formula.  That night we had some friends over to grill out and cause some mayhem.  What's a grill out with out having the Sheriff stop by, right?  ;)  

Friday morning we had our last OB appointment before Cash's arrival.  I was super emotional but we made it though.  Dr. E wheeled in the ultrasound cart to take one last look.  I had no idea why she taking so long until she said "that's what I was looking for" She found a nice pocket of fluid so she would let me stay pregnant one more week.  She said my cervix had softened but I had not dilated.  It was much easier for her to check me than her partner last week so it is clear I have dropped some.  We got our orders for the C-section, made my 2 week follow up appointment, and were on our way.

The weekend started with birthday celebrations and Saturday I had the whole day with my husband.  It was a treat!  We finally had the time to see The Dark Knight Rises and went to check out his old band that evening.  Last Saturday before becoming parents....super surreal.  I am already feeling more in love with that man than I ever have these past few days.  We are both anxious and excited.  And like I have said before scared but there is no one else on the planet I would rather be traveling this journey with.  We may be lost but we can learn together.  

5 days until we meet the little human we created.

More posts to come!

**Happy Birthday Nicole and Welcome to the World Cadence!!**
