Baby #3 - 37 Weeks

Full term!!  
After months and months (and months) of being pregnant I finally hit that point where you go, "Oh my gosh, WE'RE HAVING A BABY...soon!"  I am so unbelievably excited to hold this new little one in my arms and of course to finally find out if our family will have more pink or blue in it.  One last call, who's going to take the lead...boys or girls? :)

I think we might actually be ready for the arrival, if that's even ever possible.  The room is all set up, clothes are washed and waiting, and the car seat is ready to go.  I decided today will be the day I pack my bag as much as possible.  I have never actually packed our hospital bag before the night before we have gone in but I have been having lots of false labor and I decided I would really rather do it myself versus Matt doing it.  He would do his best but who knows what I would end up with. :)  Last weekend I spent hours in the kitchen cooking and baking and stocking up our freezer.  I have never done this before either.  (What's going on, it's so not like me to be this prepared! HA)  I just want to be extra ready this time around, especially if we have to have a c-section.  We have already had family and friends ask us what they can bring over after the baby comes.  I am so thankful for the wonderful people in our lives, we are truly very blessed!!  

A little update on how things are going:
At our last appointment baby was still breech.  I'm pretty sure it still is at this point also.  I have been trying everything I can to get this little babe flipped the past few weeks.  I have been going to the chiropractor, swimming, and hanging out upside down...which, by the way, is really hard to do when you're 8-9 months pregnant!  We will be going in tomorrow and as long as things look okay my doctor will probably try an external version.  I am feeling kind of anxious and nervous about everything but I really feel like I need to try it.  I would be more than grateful for any prayers.
Thank you!!

This is a very exciting and scary post all in one. Really. I am so excited for you to have your baby, but hope that he/she turns before you really go into labor. How scary! Good luck, and I am adding my prayers to yours.

You are nesting, girl! Prayers for you. That baby will do a flip before you know it.

Oh my, so close!! I really hope that the little stinker decides to turn so you don't have to have the doctor try it...but if the doctor does, I hope it is successful! I am glad you are so ready as well and you have so much support!! I will be praying for you for your appt today!!
By the way...I am so excited to find out if you are having a girl or boy...I think I am guessing a boy :)

I can't believe either that it's almost time :)

My Mom had to have one of my sisters flipped..3 out of 4 of us were breeched and I turned right before birth and so did my youngest sister. My Mom had my second to youngest sister flipped and it worked :) She said it was painful but worth not having a c-section.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hugs from across the ocean!

Okay baby...time to flip!! I can't believe the time is so near! I'm guessing it's a boy....

My friend used an icepack on the top of her belly to move her little guy from breech! He was moving away from the cold. I know it sounds weird but it worked!

Oh, I empathize with the upside down. That really, really stinks. I'm so glad the version worked and praying he/she stays that way.
