Update: Babygirl At Possibly 37 or 38 Weeks!

While my OB figures it out and gets her dates right, there is now doubt wether I am 36, 37 or even 38 weeks! All I know my due date is March 8th. Either way, I feel like it could be any day now baby girl decides to join us. My last OB visit was yesterday and was so looking forward to it because I was getting my last ultrasound only to be let down completely. I know it was all about measuring baby and getting important information before her birth, but this mama wanted to see more! All I got was this not so great ultrasound photo of what looks like her eye. On the computer I saw video of her face so much better than this but this was the only photo I got. Oh well, I've seen better before but it's such a blessing to find out she looks healthy and is now 6lbs 5 oz! Sophia was born at 6lbs 9 oz and Camila at 6lbs 11 oz so she's almost there! :)

Come on March, can you get here faster please! :) I've been trying to have as much bed rest as I possibly can to make it to March but who knows how much longer I have to wait to meet her! I know I look and feel like I could burst any minute now although most people keep telling me how small I look. One thing was strange though, I lost weight since my last week appointment. I went from 142lbs which was great to 139lbs yesterday. One reason I think is that I am eating less now due to the fact that she's almost up to my chest making big meals almost impossible. I'm still eating healthy though and as long as she's gaining her weight, I should be fine. I don't know if I will make it to my goal weight of 149lbs which I was on the day when I had my two other girls, I am exactly 10lbs less! It seems like this baby has been eating up every single last calorie I eat but that's ok because it's all about her.

I know one thing is for sure... we all can't wait to meet her! I've got two other little girls who are so exited to meet their little sister. Camila has been telling me "baby is taking foweva mom!" since I was one month but now she's so happy the time is closer than ever. She has been practicing her baby holding and bottle feeding with her dolls because she wants to be my little helper, she says.

Another exciting thing is that my mom is coming to visit and my family too! :) I can't wait to see them all and pray to God for a safe and healthy delivery. I can't say I'm not a bit scared as to when and how, but I have faith everything will be just fine.

Come on March, get here now! :)

*As it turns out... I am 38 weeks! I've been two weeks behind all along, thanks to my OB who got my dates mixed up. Still my Due Date falls around March 8th. ;)
