Forever and ever Amen…

Three weeks to go…perhaps.

22.5 lbs gained.  SO far…don’t know what the next couple of weeks will mean for me in that respect…I am okay with it in general.  Still difficult at times but…well…with pregnancy there is weight gain.  It’s a natural and necessary part of the process.

I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow.  It will be my final Ultrasound…at my last appointment they determined that the baby is head down and I was just under 1 cm dilated…which they assured me was good.  So it has been two weeks and we will see what we see…I will be at 37 weeks on Thursday which  they consider to be full term…so…any time after that is fine with me…I still hope to make it to near her actual due date which is March 17th.  Hopefully they will also be able to estimate her size tomorrow…it would just be good to know.  Anna’s room is ready and her car-seat is in the car…my bag is packed, her bag is packed, Jason’s bag is packed…they are all in the car so now it is just a waiting game.  I find myself anxious, tired, overwhelmed with how tired I am and how often I pee…and how tired I am…and how tired I am…and how often I repeat myself because of how tired I am…and that I don’t realize that I am repeating myself…because of how tired I am. 🙂

In general everything is good.  It’s a little hectic de casa de Jil and Jason because… drum-roll please…Jason got a new job…a land job…a job that requires NO travel whatsoever…but they are behind on a project so he is working 10 hour days 6 days a week and he does homework all day Sunday…and he goes to school right after work on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday…I am grateful that he is working…He is grateful to be working…but I would be remiss if I didn’t say, sometimes you have to be careful what you ask for 🙂  We are trying to get the insurance situation sorted out…as there have been some complications with his old job and we will have to do COBRA for a month or two and his former company has not been, exactly gracious about it…SO MUCH FUN…especially when you could be having a baby at any minute…lol

It will all work out…I KNOW this…but it still makes for some drama…

All in all…though life is jam packed right now…things are good…my health is good, Jason’s is good, the baby is good…My step-mom Becky is doing so much better with her radiation and chemo…she only has two and a half weeks left of radiation and she seems to be responding pretty well to it so far.  The chemo is hard on her but getting better…and her hair has started to come back in so that is a plus…she still has chemo for another 10 months but hopefully she will continue to respond better and better to it!  Your prayers as always are still welcome and appreciated 🙂

Anyway…I guess I will wind things up here…

All of my family and friends are very excited to meet the long anticipated Anna Paige…I am too…and Jason is about to come out of his skin…he is so tired of waiting…lol…of course he has no idea what he is in for 🙂  I am looking forward to seeing him as a dad…with his little girl…he is smitten already and she hasn’t even arrived yet…

Anywho…to all of you out there that have been a part of this blog…thanks for your support and continued prayers…I may update tomorrow or Thursday after the doctor’s appointment if there is anything new to report…if not…see you on the flip side of motherhood…

Love to you all…
