Last Doctor Appt

I had my final dr appt today before Katie's arrival on Monday. It was fairly routine and everything looks good. I am measuring right on target. My blood pressure was up a little bit from last week's appt and I have a bit of swelling in my legs. It's nothing that a good night's sleep doesn't cure. Oh, wait, what is a good night's sleep? Guess I won't know that answer for a while.

Only 4 days left until Katie's arrival. I think there is a 99.9% chance that I will make it to Monday. The only reason I don't say 100% is because anything can happen. I am barely dilated and Katie is still sitting really high. I guess she likes living in my rib cage and giving me heartburn on a daily basis.

It seems like we are ready but there are a few last minute things I want to get done. I still haven't packed the hospital bag so I guess that should be a top priority. And to pick out an outfit for her to wear for her hospital pictures, as well as coming home. We should get released from the hospital on Thursday, provided everything goes smoothly. I can't wait for Katie to get here!

Yay!! I'm so excited for you! Katie is going to be here in just a couple days. And YES! You need to pack your bag! Good lord lady. I'm not having this baby for another 6 weeks and will be packing my bag hopefully within a week or less! Sorry to hear about the heartburn but just think, after Monday morning it will be gone! :)
