Silver Bells

Hoping this finds you all happy, filled with joy and anticipation.  Our house sure is!  Christmas day soon will be here.

And I'm quickly running out of steam :)

Appointment update:

So happy to report that all is well!

* Overjoyed to hear that I have passed yet another fetal development test.

* My cerclage is holding steady and my cervix measurements are just wonderful!

*  Sono tech:: "I believe you are going to have a large baby."  Quite happy to hear that since I'm delivering two weeks early.  Head circumference is already in the 86 percentile!  Brings me comfort since I never went that early before.

*  I'm 33 weeks but measure at 35 weeks.

*  Shots...continue to go smoothly.  Only one left!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  My buns of steel of become quite the pin cushion LOL

*  Only 4 appointments left.

At this point in time, I feel I have cleared the second to last hurdle out of one million.  It's been a very long year and we are starting to boil over with excitement of meeting Baby Joy.  Words just cannot express the excitement.  I find myself tearing up thinking about it.

Yesterday the doctor looked at me and said, "YOU are at 33 weeks!"  And we both just grinned from ear to ear.  No other words were necessary.

And as a friend said, an early Christmas gift!  Yes indeed :)

34 days to go, can you believe it?!  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for all the  prayers and spiritual bouquets!  It has truly carried us through this rough and emotional year.  And as I end this post, I kindly ask that you keep them up.  We are almost there!

Advent blessings!
