36 Week Appointment...freaking out!!!!!!!

I had my 36 Week Appt. this morning and I am

1 cm dilated & 60% effaced. Yikes!

I truly can't believe it!!!!! I know I could stay this way for weeks, but I am still freaking out! I am so not ready for Caroline to be here. I am REALLY going to miss feeling her in my tummy too. I'm so sad that's almost over!

I also had another ultrasound today to check on Caroline's growth and her BIG head. Her head is still in the 98th percentile and because of this, if she doesn't come before hand, we will have her in my 38th week. They want to be sure they can get her BIG head out! That's just TWO weeks away! WOW, I really can't believe it!

She is looking good. Her abdomen is measuring small, but the doc said that everything is fine. We shouldn't be worrying about it because she is still growing at the rate she should be. They said she is about 5 lbs. 14 oz. now. Her femur bone is measuring in the 92nd percentile, so it looks like she’ll be tall, but we didn’t doubt that for a minute!

I do have the Group B Strep, so I will have to have the antibiotics in the hospital, but it's no big deal.

I guess that's it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll add it.

Have I told you that I am freaking out!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Below are some pictures we got at our ultrasound today.

Here is Caroline's little foot. It is not very clear here, but it was SO clear when we saw it on the screen. It was so amazing!!!

Here is Caroline! She wouldn't take her hand out of her face so we could get a good shot, but this shot is much better than we would have gotten last time. She is so cute!!!

Caroline is puckering up for a kiss in this pictures, but it's a little hard to tell. It was fun to see her puckering her lips during the ultrasound.

Another profile. This one isn't as good as the other, but still cute! ;)
We saw her little parts again too! She is definitely a girl!!!!!!

You DID NOT TELL ME THERE WERE PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND 4D ones to boot!!!!! I am shaking my finger at you girl! Auntie Angela must know these things!!!

She is beautiful! You will do great! Like I said, I am a firm believer that have moments of freaking out is just evidence that you are in the right place emotionally about the changes coming. If you weren't a tad freaked out, I would be worried about whether you were being realistic!!! They are big changes that are coming, but they are OH-SO-PRECIOUS! You are going to do great and as much as you don't want to share her :o), seeing her with David will take the love between you two to a whole new and beautiful level.

I love you and am here for as many calls as you need!!!

I truly am excited to see David with our little girl. I know I will be so excited when they lay her on my chest! I really am looking forward to meeting my little girl. I will truly miss that feeling in my tummy though!

Angela - Sorry I didn't tell you about the pictures! Yesterday was just so insane. I'm sure you understand. I have another U/S next week, so be on the lookout for more pictures!!!
