On Friday I made my last Walmart run and did what you're not supposed to do: go to the store hungry. Not only did I stock up on lots of snack stuff--for the kids, mostly anyway--I managed to get a full meal on the way home. Two popsicles, a banana, almonds, vanilla wafers and a Diet Dr. Pepper. Don't lie--you've done it before!
Oh. Well it was fairly well-balanced compared to what I eat the first few months of pregnancy.
I have my last sonogram in the morning at the perinatal specialist. While at the hospital I also have to go do blood work for Wednesday and turn all of my papers in. My guess is that I'll be gone all morning then tomorrow afternoon Sean's sister Amy and her family are coming over to entertain us. Technically I invited to entertain them but now she's bringing everything and the kids will, no doubt, be entertained by their older cousins. Tuesday will be a blur I'm sure--I'm hoping time will fly as it usually does--and we take the kids to Mimi and Pops house Tuesday night to stay for a few days. I check in at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, (can I really be talking about THIS WEEK?) and surgery is supposed to start at 7:30. My OB gets back from Europe just in time to deliver her and as much as I've tried to talk the other doctors in his practice into taking her out the last few weeks I'm so glad it will be him. Here's hoping he won't have jet lag...
I'll have people updating here so all of you prayer warriors know what is happening. We are still overwhelmed when people tell us they have prayed for Joy this whole time. What a gift you are giving us! We are hopeful and calm. Granted it is still a few days out :)
