Last peek!

We had our final ultra sound today. Kind of sad and happy. This is the last time we get to see our little Megan until she is born. It also means she will be here soon. Not this weekend or the next though. Britt is on his way to Idaho Falls and maybe Salt Lake, 4 day trip. Funny thing is his dispatcher asked him if he wanted a Sacramento load after that. Britt had to remind him that I was almost full term and could have the baby anytime. Obviously he is single, lol. Memorial Day weekend we are going to a lake near Leavenworth. I am so excited! Alexis can't wait to go fishing with Daddy and has requested a new pole. So it looks like Megan will have to wait until June to make her grand appearance!

Ok so the ultrasound showed her growth is right on for being 36 weeks and 4 days. How they know that I will never know since babies are not all the same size. She is now in the 49% for gestational age, which is awesome since a month ago it was 30%. She is just over 6 pounds. So it looks like I lost the weight guessing. She is laying head down but on her side. So her back is to my left side and her feet are stretching out to my right. We were able to get a look at her face, but boy is she squished! Dr Maslow is so awesome though, he asked us to bring him a picture of Megan when she is born. He did worn us that with the marginal cord insertion there is a chance, a small one, that she could have some trouble during labor. So if it comes down to it he, or their on call doctor, would deliver at St. Joseph's in Tacoma. We really feel blessed with the way everything has turned out. Alexis asked Dr. Maslow if he was going to take the baby out now. He is so good with children and just the nicest doctor. He comes and personally gets us from the waiting room and then helps me with my sweater, just really nice. I have started to feel some more pressure so I think she is moving down. I hope since my heart burn has been horrid and I can barely eat before feeling full. I don't have issues with breathing though so that is good. I have aching in my belly and it itches so much right now. I am still hoping for my belly button to pop....I don't know why but I really want it too! When she moves now it is sometimes painful, I don't mind too much. Megan responds to Alexis and Britt talking and will move a whole bunch. Alexis loves it and laughs when she moves for her! So the impatient waiting game begins. We are all ready for her. We have diapers, wipes, newborn clothes all washed and ready to be worn. I have bought the special wipes for breastfeed babies, creams for me, shampoos, got my free sample for breastfeeding care. Britt needs to raise the crib up and I have a few things to put on the walls since painting is just not going to get done. Need to put the car seat in the car, I just feel a bit scattered right now so I would probably always feel like I was always forgetting something. I need to pack my bag and finish Megan's. I also need to pack one for Alexis, she gets to go to Grandpa Martin's. Not going to worry about Britt he is a last minute packer anyways. I have 5 dinners in the freezer and one more planned for this weekend. It is nice to have a small enough family that I can make a casserole and split it in 2, one for dinner and one for the freezer. Ok well I have rambled on long enough...time for Carmel popcorn!

2 lil' notes:

I am almost as excited as you guys are for Megan to be here! Hey, do you want some help in getting the room painted - like maybe while you are gone at the lake? You know, I can paint. Just let me know if that would help you or not! No pressure - just looking for something to do to be nice!
Love you,
Mom Shirley
