9 Days and Thanks Megan!!!

We are down to single digits! 

OMG - that is CRAZY!

I think I may be the only pregnant woman ever that will go on the record saying pregnancy should be like an entire year.  These past 9 months have gone by WAY too quickly.  Seriously, December (when we found out we were expecting) feels like yesterday!

I had a great day yesterday!  I didn't have to go into the office which was wonderful, I took a 2 hour nap, had a wonderful doctor's appointment, and got a sweet package in the mail!!!

As of yesterday, I look good and so does Kate.  She is still a bit on the small size but my doctor is not concerned.  I have a few appointments with some specialists this week (cardiologist and hematologist) just to review some of the health issues I have and make sure all of the doctor's at the hospital are on board and aware of these issues prior to taking me back to the OR for Kate's birth.

I see my doctor again next Monday to go over all of the details of August 19 and to have one last ultrasound!

I am getting very excited to meet this little girl - but I have to admit it doesn't feel real just yet.  We have worked so hard to get to this point - and it wasn't an easy ride.  I have had some of the hardest, darkest days of my life while trying to start our family and it is just so surreal to think that we are just days away from everything we worked for.  Just thinking about having a new member of our family makes me smile, freak out, and then smile some more!!

Also, a big thank you to Megan for the sweet monogrammed onsie and monogrammed diaper cover that she and Paige sent to Kate!  Megan and I "met" on a support group for women dealing with infertility.  We started talking on the forum and now e-mail multiples times a day - and text a good bit too!  She has a beautiful daughter and is expecting sweet twins boys!  She's going to have her hands full but I know she will be an awesome mom of 3!  I am so thankful for her friendship as she went through several of the same complications I have experienced and really "gets" me which is so wonderful!
