37 Weeks!

Well folks, looks like we are coming up on the end of this journey! We are very excited, even though we are still trying to get over whatever has been ailing us. (I’m working on a post about that one.)

We are now at 37 weeks — are you excited, yet? We are! Today was my weekly visit to the doctor and she started in on those wonderful pelvic exams that you get in the last month. The good news is that the head is in place (all ready) and my cervix is starting to open. Woohoo!! Who would have thought I would ever say that or better yet, blog about!?

According to the doctor she won’t be surprised to see me in labor within the next week, THE NEXT WEEK! I think I went completely blank when she delivered this news. I couldn’t believe it and still can’t. However, it’s starting to sinking in, now that I have had several hours to mull it over. Of course, there isn’t any way to predict when this will happen, but she also said she doesn’t think there is anyway that I will make it to my due date, the first week of April.

Holy cow! I guess I really should say Holy Baby!

trying not to look sick, but it's not working so well…

our little bundle is almost ready

    You look so fabulous! So very excited for you! Can’t wait to hear of baby girl’s arrival! Btw, we will be in LA (and maybe Laguna, Newport beach or La Jolla) in August! We’d love to see you guys when we are there!! Good luck! Xoxo

      Thanks girl! We would love to see you in August. Keep us posted on where you will be so we can make a plan. It would be such a shame for you to be so close, especially since one of them is only 15 minutes away, and miss you all. xo

    I’m still not beting on the next week but you just never know with these things. Either way, we are all super excited. The boys want to come but I told them they would have to settle for Skype a few later. 🙂

    • albumsofus says:

      Are you thinking before or after next week? We are excited, too. Those boys are too cute! Tell them that we wish you all could be here, too (even Domingo). Skype will be our best friend soon enough, I think. 😉

      • Rachel says:

        I’m thinking you have two weeks or so left. 🙂 Once you hit 3-4 cm, then I’ll change my answer. Skype will be good. 🙂

      • albumsofus says:

        Ahhh, ok. You are on one side and my in law’s are on the other. We will see who’s right soon enough! 😉

    I am very excited to think you might deliver early! But blast that doctor it could be on your due date too. Love to you, Gil and Domingo who looks like he is so happy with his family. xoxo

    • albumsofus says:

      Me too, me too, me too!! We watched a bunch of hospital ‘videos’ last night so we are all set (or as much as we can be). Love you, too! Can’t wait for her to get here, which means we get to see you soon, also! Yahoo!!!
