This morning Nick and I headed into the doctor for our weekly prenatal visit and left with the biggest smiles on our faces.  Today marks 36 weeks which apparently is a huge difference from just a week ago, medically speaking.  Talk with our doctor turned from preterm labor questions to when you go into labor directives. It really could happen at any moment.  Because I have a two vessel umbilical cord (don't google it, just know that everything is fine) my doctors will not let me deliver past my due date so we're looking at an induction in about 3 weeks if I don't start labor on my own before then.  3 weeks! Why does that sound so much sooner than 4 weeks? 

We're so ready for her but these last precious weeks also feel incredibly bittersweet -  The only time in our lives that it will ever just be my husband and I again. I want to cherish this time and make these last couple weekends all about holding his hand and heart.  I want him to know how much I love him and that even though life is going to be turned upside down so very soon, I would not have chosen to navigate this journey with any one other than him.  


  1. best of luck!! you two will be amazing parents :)

    my friend went to a dayspa when she was about at your stage in the pregnancy and says it was amazing!! you should schedule a time to go soon :)

  2. I have to say, I just started reading your blog and have caught up on most of your baby updates... I find it so very lovely that you treasure the time with your husband just as much as the excitement of a new baby – that your relationship is just as important. It's so refreshing to read. I feel like i'd be the same way. Anyway, you don't have to make this comment public if it's too personal of a comment, but just wanted to say thank you for sharing such a lovely sentiment!

    Good luck over the next 3 weeks! :)

  3. What a wonderful thing for you to say. I'm really, very touched by your comment. Thank you for reading and for sharing that sweet sentiment with me :)

  6. I just love reading your blog. It brings me peace, and calms me down. Although I have never met you, I am so very excited to hear about the arrival of your little girl. I have two little ones myself, and I know your world is going to change soon. You are so ready for this.

  7. Thank you, Izzy. Those are such sweet words. I am ready for this, you're right :)
