38 weeks and Birthday

Today we had our LAST doctors appointment! We started off with an ultrasound to see how big Amelia is. She weighs roughly 6 lbs 12 oz. So she is a great size. She doesn't have much room at all.  We had a 4D ultrasound. We got to see Amelia smile and stick her tongue out. I couldn't believe how chunky her little cheeks are. And it looks like she got a cute little nose... Deric was worried about that! ;) I think she is going to be a little cutie!!

 We decided today  that Amelia will be born via c-section on Monday..... MONDAY!!! I can't believe it! We will meet our little girl around 1:00 on the 17th. I have to go to to the hospital for pre-op on Thursday and then we show up Monday at 11:30 to start the process! My parents and sister will be here this weekend. So I am looking forward to them being here. I can't seem to stop smiling just thinking of our little girl being here so soon!

This is the best picture I could get of myself today. I was using the self timer....

I had a c-section as well. It was a breeze and it's wonderful being a mommy! I wish you best of luck! I know you'll do great and be so excited when you meet your little one!
