Just copied and pasted from my DDC....so, some parts I may have mentioned here already....

I just got home from the high risk dr. Everything is good with Mollie. She moved around all over the place during the NST. She always gets a 10 out of 10 on that. She had the hiccups so it kept making a loud noise every time! The u/s tech said she has tons of thick hair! And...she is head down now!! Thank GOD! I was starting to really worry about c-secion. I didn't get her weight today, but will at the next appt. My protein is up again....500. I have to repeat the urinalysis. This will be about the 5th or 6th time I've done it. My BP is actually good but swelling is bad, especially the last few days. The dr. said I have enough issues to deliver by 37 weeks if I make it that far. THat would be Dec 27th. I SO wish it would work out that way!! I'm ready to meet her and I would love to keep it in this calendar year for a lot of reasons. Of course, the most important thing is that she is READY.

We are SO ready for her to be here. Everything is cleaned and ready to go. Car seat will go in this weekend. We are just counting down the days. I can't believe it's already this close. It seems like just a few weeks ago we were finding out and on our Disney trip. It has flown by...BUT I am definitely ready to be done with pregnancy and really don't ever want to do it again. Its just been so much this time. I swear if I never set foot in another dr's office or have to fill another RX....UGH! I'm sick of all of it. I'm sick of all the extra bills associated with it and I'm sick of being basically disabled. I'm ready to get out and go work in my yard, hike in the woods and do 5000 things a day and not get tired.

I really, really want to be well and able to hold her and take care of her right away. I was so sick last time, I couldn't. I was mentally OFF too. I was so full of anxiety and hormones crashing and whatever side effects from being on Magnesium....I was just a mess. I couldn't sleep and I thought DS would die if he stayed in my room. I would only keep him during the day while we were awake and I was feeding him. (I was there 9 days). I just couldn't sleep with him in the room and even with him gone, I laid there panicking about having to be awake to feed him again in 2 hours. It was awful. Even after I got home, I was mildly insane for about a week. lol I really don't feel nearly as anxious this time so I'm hoping I won't be that way again. Pray!!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16

GINGER....I am praying so hard....I HAVE PRAYED EVERY MORNING FOR HER TO GO HEAD DOWN...YEAY MOLLIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I think the first pregnancies and the recovery of it in specific are the worst...mentally too!! The first baby really changes your life and combine that with hormone crashes you've never felt or had, post PPD....is so common. I was the same way but much better with ANNA..=) I have a feeling you will feel completely different this time around!!

I know how read you are...you get to this point and every day is like a month and it is just so exciting!!! She will be here before you know it...thinking and praying for you!!!! xoxoxo
