Getting Ready

The Nursery is ready. The car seat is ready. Dave is ready. I'm ready. Now we just need to wait for little girl to be ready! I am 2cm dilated and 70% effaced so it could be any day now. Or it could be 2 more weeks (Gosh I hope not)! Either way our latest ultrasound estimates baby girl is about 6lbs and 6oz so she is plenty big enough to be born tomorrow and yet she isn't too big which is a relief to hear.

As we near the end of this part of the journey and get ready to enter the next journey of parenthood I am ever more emotional. Sure it probably because of the hormones, but I am also reminded everyday how blessed I am to have this life growing inside me, a wonderful, loving husband, and great family and friends who have supported me throughout the years. We can't wait for baby girl to join our family and meet all the special people who have poured their love on us all these years.
