I can absolutely not believe that we leave tomorrow for Charleston! I told Scott over 5 months ago that he would have to drag me to the hospital to have our daughter but I am actually ready to go and face this giant...and, more importantly, meet our daughter. Her life has already been such a testimony of God's power, goodness and grace. I cannot wait to see what He does in her life once she's actually here!
I had my last prenatal appointment yesterday, too. Everything went well as usual. It was sad to me to know that it would be the last time I am in there every week. The ultrasonographer, OB nurse, and doctor have all become like family. I have had such amazing support from all of them. They have been nothing short of compassionate and comforting to me throughout this pregnancy. There have been many times that I have gone with such anxiety about how Annabelle is doing and they always seem to calm me down (especially Dr. Johnson...she has listened to so much and been so wonderful). My goal is to have Annabelle, get her through surgery and eating and be back for my six week postpartum checkup with them. Dee Dee has seen her face so many times on the ultrasounds that I know she is ready for some pictures!
I have had a couple of baby showers in the past few weeks that have gotten me really excited, too! Annabelle's room is loaded with stuff! I have finished packing her bags to take which was really fun. Since she won't be able to wear clothes for a while, I am going to have to change her little outfits at least 5 times a day once she can with everything I just had to take! Of course, she has matching bows for them all!!!
The next post will be of our little angel's birth! Scott is going to try to get some pictures and her stats up for everyone by Monday evening. Please continue to pray for a successful delivery and a strong baby girl!
