Holly all I have to say is: Dang, that is exciting!! Just a few days and you will have that little girl in your arms. It's great to hear your bp cooperated and your pregnancy has been boring. Isn't it nice to be able to enjoy it?

Ha! Yes I have moments when I think I want this all to be over I want to hear her cry, I never once in the 4 months my son lived heard him cry, he was on the vent the entire time. Then I think I will miss her in my belly, which I cannot believe it because I actually had incredible moments I got to enjoy during the pregnancy!!! Woah, 8 days to go for me!!! Ahhhhhh

Are you getting impatient? I am! It's hard for me to be sooo close. I want this over with so my baby is safely out and in my arms, but I know it's better to wait just a few more weeks.

I hope it all goes well!

@ Gratiana yay! I am sooo excited and happy for you, at 30 weeks I was like omg did I actually just hit 30 weeks!!! Then finally time seemed to go at lease a little faster. @ Angie, I am a bit nervous and skeptical over the amnio she scored an 8 out of 8 last last Bpp so Im wanting to back out of this amnio possibly.

OMG I swear we have like some kind of connection, every time something tells me to ask how you are you have an awesome updat!!!! Sooooo excited for you! I am so beyond happy your doc moved up the date. I was hoping/praying they would because my doc told me with a classical incision 36/37 weeks is the max they like to let people go! OMG can't wait to see pics! I'm so happy you get to do things like prepare a hospital bag, and plan your shower/coming out party <3 I know our little angels are watching over you and cheering you on!!!! YAY!!!!
