31 Weeks 4 Days!!!

(Image of what our little guy possibly looks like at 32 weeks)-Amazing!

I can not believe we are in the final weeks countdown! Only about 7 1/2 weeks to go and our little Caleb will be here! Things are going smoothly so far. Blood pressure and protein levels are good and no swelling yet! I'm feeling pretty good, compared to Macie's pregnancy at this point where I was on bedrest with high blood pressure, major swelling, high protein levels, and just plain miserable! Of course I am experiencing the expected "joys" of the 3rd trimester: heartburn, not sleeping well, starting to feel really heavy, lots of pressure, getting really exhausted after just taking a shower, peeing ALL the time~the list could go on! But it is ALL worth it for this little guy that we will get to meet very soon!

His room is almost finished and I am wrapping up getting all the necessities ready for our sweet little boy to arrive! I am a planner/organizer so of course it is no surprise that I have already started "packing a bag" for us both:-) It is all really starting to sink in that he will be here soon, considering Macie was born just 3 1/2 weeks from where I am at now! Of course I am not wanting him to arrive that soon, but I would be ok for him to come "a little" earlier than the planned c-section date!

As of right now, the plan is to just WAIT AND SEE and how we deliver. VBAC is an option if I go into labor on my own, he stays in the correct position, blood pressure stays down, and things are progressing quickly, but if I make it to 39 weeks (the week of April 13), then we will go ahead with a scheduled c-section. I just want a safe delivery for myself and Caleb, so whatever that may be, I will take.

You look wonderful, Faith! And ultrasound (that is what it is, right? I'm not up on the terminology, LOL.) looks AMAZING! It's so incredible how clear it is.
