Lil Sis Update #2

Well had my 37 week check today. My BP was high again but no protein spilling and no swelling or sudden weight gain. So I'm just being difficult:)

Well yesterday, I felt off all day and night so I got to thinking that lil sis was coming early like by this weekend. So the Dr comes in and in light of my BP being high the last 2 vists, that we should move the C/S date up. This should help with my BP issues so I don't have to have a hospital stay before she is born or possibly on any meds.

So lil sister is coming TOMORROW, Thursday, Aug, 20. So around lunchtime we should have our newest member of the family. Hopefully she will have a name by then. No we still haven't decided. Apparently we work better with the pressure of the knife:)

I will be at 37 weeks and 5 days with her. That's 10 weeks + 3 days longer than Ian cooked.

So luckily it is tomorrow so that gives time for my mom to get here to watch Ian for us. Unfortunately she will be the only grandparent present. Perry's mom & stepdad are coming tomorrow night for the weekend, my dad is coming on Sat morning, & Perry's dad and stepmom aren't going to be able to make it as his stepmom's family is having some serious health issues and her place is with them. PLEASE keep her family in your prayers. It could be a rough weekend for her.

We will send them plenty of pics and calls over the next couple of days so that they don't geel left out. She was looking forward to being here for the birth. As all of the grandparents missed it last time as well.

Oh well, time to go. I still have to get pretty feet tonight and need to run laundry so it's caught up:) Oh well no rest for the weary:)


  1. Yay - I'm so excited for you to welcome your newest addition to your family tomorrow! I know you must be so relieved to be over 37 weeks (almost 38!) pregnant this time! I feel like so much of my worries are lifted now that I am a couple of days from 36 weeks. We'll be praying that everything goes smoothly for you and your baby tomorrow, and I hope you have a speedy recovery! Can't wait to see pictures and hear the name that you choose for your little girl!!
    Perry's stepmom and her family will be in our payers as well!

  2. Woo hoo! We are so excited for you!!! We can't wait too see pictures! I bet Ian is so excited too! I love the bedroom! It looks great and all ready! Good luck tomorrow, we will be thinking of you! Prayers for Perry's stepmom and her family!
