246 Days pregnant

Today I am 247 days pregnant...wow I've got pretty far!
(35 weeks 2 days).
The final count down has begun! Most likely b/c of my
gestational diabetes they will induce me early....so in
less than 4 weeks we will meet our new princess!!! WOW
I am so anxious to meet her!
I have checked off the final thing off our list, a car seat!
Gosh I can't believe I waited this long to get one! But now
she is ready to come home =)
I have started my maternity leave a little early, do to some
complications. I am to take it easy and rest now so that
Stella makes a safe entrance into this world. It is very
hard for me to "rest". Especially at this time of year when
I feel I "need" to get things done for Christmas. But I
am blessed with a very loving family who have helped
me with cleaning and shopping! I could not ask for a
better mom & husband..as well as kiddos =)
Alli Jo is getting very excited to meet her baby sister!
She has helped me fold Stella's clothes and blankets,
organized her bedroom, and got the diaper bag ready =)
Hunter has pretty much kept to herself and she gets excited
to feel the baby kick...but she pretty much knows what to
expect and isn't the happiest to know mommy is going to have
to share her love with yet another child =( So we are trying
to cope with that as much as we can.
All in all we are ready to meet our princess....just waiting for
her to be ready to meet us =)
