Maternity Shoot

Well, we are officially 38 weeks! 2 weeks left to go and it is so surreal. I’ve pretty much been ready for our little girl to make sure appearance since our 35 week doctors appointment. I had a little scare at that appointment with having high blood pressure all the sudden after having no issues all pregnancy, so my OB thought I could have pre-eclampsia. I have been retaining more fluids than expected and pre-eclampsia could come up at any point especially towards the end of pregnancy. Needless to say, I was sent to Triage, hooked up to the monitors and had all the tests I could possibly have taken. I was having contractions every 10 minutes while I was there but, I was also a nervous wreck, wasn’t drinking a ton of water that day and could have been contributing factors for sure. My blood pressure after 4 1/2 hours came down drastically and all tests came back negative. If that day didn’t make me ready, I don’t know what could have. We are as ready as we will ever be for her to be here and care for her and let’s face it…I’m NEVER going to be ready to push this little girl out. Keep in mind, she’s about a week ahead of schedule and is already 7.5lbs (insert scared face here)! Ah!!! I’m going to have a chunky little girl, but when she decides to make her debut in just 14 days I’ll never be more ready to have her in this world, in our arms. We prayed so hard for this little girl and having gone through 2 1/2 years of crying and fights just wanting to get pregnant makes everything worth it. I’ll forever cherish these moments I have had while carrying her, these pictures will always remain close to my heart.

No one will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only one who knows the sound of my heart from the inside.
