One week closer!
I had a non-stress test at 34w6d that was all good and OB told me there is only a 1 in 3,000 chance of stillbirth in the week following a good non-stress test. Good news! She has been pretty wiggly since then, which I appreciate. 😀
I told my OB I wasn't wild about Friday the 13th as my c-section day despite not thinking of myself as superstitious, so it has been moved to October 12th! I'm so grateful she obliged! One fewer day to count. 😀
We had a couple of baby showers over the weekend! We felt so so grateful for the generosity, love, encouragement, and support for everyone who came or reached out. It was so so lovely!
Friday early evening we got (kind of) dressed up and went to the church to take some "maternity photos". Dave just took some pictures with his DSLR. Some turned out really well! We went to the church since Miriam's tree is there and we wanted to take pictures with her tree. Once we go through them and upload them to the computer I will share some. I really wanted some good quality pictures with my belly and the kids.
As of today the countdown is 23 days (or less)! So I'm now in total to-do list and preparation mode. It's like I'm preparing for the world to stop. Everyone needs eye exams and such before then right? Plus, there is still a lot of set up and getting supplies from the attic, and learning at least the basics of breastfeeding to do. And.... I still haven't made our family's 2016 photo album. I figure that needs to be done before 2018, right? Haha
The to-do list is long, but it's very satisfying to check things off the list. I'm more like 95% sure we are bringing home a baby, so that's an improvement. Still praying she comes home safely!
And oh! More good news! We are down to 3 names! Hopefully she fits one of them when we see her. ❤️
