Baby Wallace: 37 weeks

Just about 2 weeks to go!  Oh me, oh my!!

My friends are so precious to me.  In new, creative, and wonderful ways the Lord continues to show His love to me via friends.  What a blessing!  My sweet friend, Lauren (go check out her and her hubby’s business!) was kind to me and took some pictures of me and growing baby W.  We couldn’t be happier.  We are so thankful to have such a fun and precious time documented with such love – thank you, Lauren!!

I mean really – isn’t she amazing.  THANK YOU LAUREN!!!

The past few weeks – oh goodness.  Getting into crazy mode.  Changing rooms / painting / making purchases / FREAKING out / Prepping Rooms for a little body / lots of sitting on bouncy ball / Hospital Tour / a bit more freaking out / turning over fear to the Lord / getting pretty gosh darn excited.

My appointment today…still 2 cm dilated – everyone thinking baby will be a good ol’ size again (dr. encouraged the baby speeding processes to commence in the next week or so!).  The ultrasound thankfully yielded a healthy little baby with a sweet BIG tummy – good fluid amounts – and once again…a good grower :)  No Group B Strep this time around though – hooray!  One less thing…

Baby W (according to Babycenter) should be about 19 inches and weighs about 6 1/3 lbs.  BUT, our Baby W measured today (granted, past 37 weeks) at 8 lbs…but really, who knows what those sonograms show anyway!   I have begun to have much more pressure on my pelvis – and thus the mega return of my bouncy ball friend.  I really wanted to take it to church yesterday.  I can no longer sleep through the night (surprised that it had taken this long!) due to my shrinking bladder space!  And ohhhh, the acid reflux.  I am SO stoked for that aspect of pregnancy to be left behind!

Our darling big sister is getting quite excited for her new room buddy (haha, don’t worry, they won’t be room buddies for a while!) and is so excited that she’ll “have someone to talk to” in the back seat!  She continues to show such maturity and tenderness – we are amazed and humbled.  Please continue in prayers over our little lady, we want this broadening of our family to be seen in such an exciting, beautiful light for her!
