Baby will be here soon!

Well, it's now just a handful of days before I go home to "wait" for baby. And since it's been so long since I've posted anything on here, I'm pretty sure I haven't even annouced my pregnancy yet! We're pregnant! :) We found out last June that we are expecting our 5th little one. After 3 consecutive miscarriages last year (2010), we were excited but hesitant all at the same time. Week by week went by and we were able to see a heartbeat via an ultrasound at 7 weeks and then confirmed by my midwife appt at 10 weeks. At 12 weeks we told family and close friends and 20 weeks I made it public via facebook.

So now here I am, just starting my 38th week and ready to meet my baby!! We did have a 20 week ultrasound to find out the sex of this baby. People seemed very surprised by our decision to know this time, and frankly, I'm kind of shocked myself...but with moving around so much and having everything so unpredidctable in our lives right now, I just wanted something I could plan for. yes, it can be wrong, but the majority of the time it is right. I guess we will know for sure soon!! We haven't made the sex public knowledge but will tell people if they no, I'm not posting will either have to ask, or wait a couple more weeks :)

I saw my midwife a few days ago and everything is looking great, although I am again very "small" for being 38 weeks pregnant. But since baby is the right size, that is perfectly fine with me to be small! I measured at a 31 :)

Here are a few pics!

Isn't baby cute?? :)

20 weeks!

I know I've said this before, but I do plan to blog a little more than I have been. I have a lot of things that I want to remember during this time and blogging is the best way for me to do this! So stay tuned :)
