At 37 weeks pregnant I am vulnerable to the events of labor - which could occur at anytime now. I am anxious to have our baby girl, just so I don't feel so consumed with the fear that my water will break. What exactly would I do if I was out and about with Austin and she decided to bust free? I would panic! How embarrassing would it be to be stranded with a toddler in a pool of amniotic fluid. My blood pressure rises just to think of these events happening.
I did have an ultrasound this past Thursday and baby girl - yes, she is definitely still a girl, is doing perfect. She has a good amount of amniotic fluid in there with her. So, hopefully she will not have a NICU stay like her brother. The ultrasound was wonderful. It has been hard since seeing her on the screen, knowing that I am just waiting to have her in my arms. She looks like she might have chubby cheeks - YES!! I can't wait to kiss them. She was "breathing" throughout the sonogram - which signifies good lung development. At one point, she stuck her tongue out - adorable. I am extremely excited about this because Austin was tongue tied and could not stick his tongue out. So again, hopefully she is not like her brother and her tongue is free - which will make breastfeeding a lot easier.
We are all ready to have her here. Just waiting for her to decide my belly is no longer a nice place to stay. So, hurry up baby girl, momma is getting impatient.
