It’s the final countdown
If you could look around my living room right now you would see 3 children passed out in various spots. One on each couch and one on the floor. We all stayed up way too late last night watching movies.
While I sit here on the “therapy chair” the kids call the end of the couch that has a built in ottoman this, and the term has lovingly stuck, I feel an odd sense of peace and serenity. All too soon we all may be passed out all over the place, simply because we’ve been up all night with Adrienne.
This feeling of peace and serenity has been coming and going over me the last few days. Yes we’ve had some days with major stresses,namely the medical staff not doing their part to get the right records so I can avoid a second c-section after already having 4 successful Vbacs,but in the end this feeling always comes back.
Yes I’ve never done natural childbirth before
Yes it still scares the hell out of me to some degree
Yes I have never breastfed before
However,Brandon and I both know what’s best for us as a family as well as welcoming Adrienne into the world. At almost 37 weeks the fact that we’re going to have another little one entering the family is a reality.
She is moving almost constantly now. She will fit right in with her brothers and sisters.
We had our last ultrasound this week and the estimate on her weight so far is 7lbs 3 oz!!! No wonder I feel so tired. That’s a lot of baby at 36 weeks to carry around.
She hasn’t engaged into the pelvis yet but she has definitely been practicing her flexibility. Yes,that is a foot in her face!!!!
All the kids said she was doing her first facepalm in this pic. I couldn’t agree more.
I know I am capable of giving birth to this baby, even when fears creep in I am still able to ease them with the fact that this is my body,it knows what I’m doing.
We can’t wait to meet you baby girl. I think you’re going to fit right in!
If anyone has any words of wisdom they’d like to share….please do!
We know that
