39 Weeks and Some Last Minute Stats!


39w1d today and just had my very last OB appointment.  EVER. Like, for real.  Ever, ever. I promise.  I also had my last BPP ultrasound as well... here are the details:
  • I didn't ask how far ahead I was measuring today.  I was 7 weeks ahead last week and I figured what the hell's the difference at this point, right?  
  • I was still sitting at 6cm, so that's great news.  While every other 39 weeker in the world is hoping for progress, I, my friends, am not. 6cm is a perfectly fine starting point for my induction, and at this point, I just really want to make it to Monday.  
  • "Feet up all weekend." Doctors orders.  No problem. {Well, except that I have 3 kids. And I'm watching my niece and nephew on Saturday night too.  Hmmm. 5 kids under 6 should be no problem at all, right?}
  • My BP was high again today.  My OB is worried and we're both glad that I only have to make it 3 more days.  She gave me a list of signs/symptoms to be concerned about {all of which I'm aware of, having had pre-e twice before} so we'll just take it easy and try to make it to Monday.
  • Baby IV did amazing at her BPP today.  No problems meeting any of the requirements, so that's a plus.  Good job baby girl!
  • The tech did a quick growth ultrasound along with the BPP.  My OB and MFM just wanted a few measurements to get an idea for Monday's induction. Homegirl weighed 9lbs 10oz today.  No big deal.  And I'm not saying that sarcastically.  I thought she'd be around 9lbs 8oz on Monday, so that's pretty spot-on.  I guess we'll see!  {Now watch her be my smallest baby! Fine by me! Ha!}
Can't believe I'll be meeting my 2nd daughter in just a few days.  EEEKKK!!! The kids are all beyond excited.  Everyday Brynn asks me "Is Emersom finally coming TODAY mom??"  Carter has a countdown going to Monday and always says "I wonder what she's going to look like??  I think she will have blue eyes and yellow hair and look just like Brynn!"  It's so cute.  Reid doesn't really know what's coming, of course, but he sure loves rubbing my belly, giving it kisses and saying "ahhh, baby!"  That kid is too sweet.  I think he'll really love her.

So excited to meet my final baby... the one who will make our family complete.  We love you so much already, my sweet girl.  See you soon.

Pregnancy: 39 weeks  

Days until 1.27.14 induction:  3 days

Sleep: Reid's molars are coming in.  Enough said.
  
Gender: It's a GIRL!  {Check out the reveal post.}

Movement: She is a crazy person and it is so painful at this point. OUCH.

For reference, here are my side-by-side weekly belly pics with Reid and my first 20 weeks with Emmie Mae.
