About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

10 days...

I can't believe after 9+ months of pregnancy, Sophie will be here very soon. We had a growth ultrasound done since she was measuring almost two weeks ahead by fundal height. We found out she isn't as big as originally thought, she is a little over 7 pounds, but has a good layer of fat on her. Take a look at this:

Those cheeks! Those lips! Oh my gosh I just want to kiss her whole face she is too adorable. She has my lips for sure and Spencer's chin. I can't wait to hold her in a few days!

We did also find out that I have polyhydramnios, which is an excess of amniotic fluid. I need to go twice weekly to the hospital to get a non-stress test. They strap 2 monitors on my belly - one for my contractions and one for the baby. It usually takes about an hour. Just a precaution for the excess fluid -- usually they start NST's (non-stress tests) if I go past my due date anyway.

In terms of progress, I am 1cm dilated and 70% effaced.

We are so looking forward to meeting her and feel very ready for her arrival. I have had things ready for over a week now, so time is of course crawling by. Tomorrow I will be in single digits. A lot of the family and friends have bet on this weekend and early next week for her arrival. We hope so. I say the 11th and Spencer says the 10th. I am getting more uncomfortable and more anxious each day. Spence is really cute to watch to see how excited he gets. Each day gets more and more real for us. Come on Sophie, we are super excited to meet you!!!
