The Final Stretch

As you all know I haven't been very good about updating my blog, but I though that should try to get another post in before Baby "S" arrives. We are at 37 weeks and it is unbelievable. Where has the time gone? At moments it seemed the days would stretch on forever while some weeks would pass like a blink of an eye. I can't wait for Baby "S" to arrive, but on the other hand I will miss the watching my belly dance and feeling the pokes and kicks in the middle of the night. As much as I can't sleep and could barely put on my shoes, I will miss this feeling. I have loved being pregnant and feel blessed that everything went as it did. I only hope the rest of it will be as amazing.

Today, I go in for my appointment and ultrasound. They want to take measurements of the baby because they are worried it will be a fat little thing. If you have seen my stomach lately, it is probably on its way! They will also check to see if I have dialated anymore. At my last appointment I was 1 centimeter dialated and 30% effaced. I am just hoping the baby will hold off until my mom gets here!

Here are some pictures that my amazing friend Kelle took of my pregnancy. How amazing that I will have these pictures that captured my pregnancy so perfectly. Thank you Kel, I love you!

It is an absolute miracle that this tiny baby has grown for the last 9 months in my belly. It has grown eyelashes, fingernails, organs, eyeballs, etc. Then this miracle comes out and it is your baby. One that was made from two people who love eachother. You are responsible for the rest of your life for this miracle. I just can't get over it. It is truly amazing. So the next post may be of the sweet Senkarik. It is unbelievable!

Tears rolling down my face as I listen to this song and how happy you are!

Take that happiness you're feeling, wrap it up tight and multiply it times a billion and you think that's how happy you're going to be once he/she is here.

Not even close.

Doesn't even scratch the surface!

I love you and Baby Gap Model so much already!

Great post Sammy-sam-sam! You have so much to look forward to. It is truly amazing to know that YOU nurtured and "grew" this baby for 9 months and that you and Ryan will mold this baby into who he/she will be as an adult. It's wonderful and I wish you all the best. Can't wait to meet Baby "S". Love you!!
