36 Weeks

We have had a busy few days! I was blessed to have another shower thrown for Gabby and me this weekend by my good friends Jennifer and Jeannie. They did a beautiful job! I was fortunate to have all of my aunts and one of my grandmothers to fly in to spend the weekend with me celebrating. Also, Katie and Avery came for the weekend! It was wonderful having everyone here and excited to welcome Gabby. We received so many wonderful gifts and spent the afternoon with my family and closest friends (pictures to be posted as soon as I receive them).

Brian's best friend came down for the weekend to visit as well. It worked out really well considering the amount of women that were around for the weekend! I know they had a great time hanging out too.

We went to my weekly doctor appointment yesterday. A little earlier than one full week due to the fact that my belly did not measure properly last Thursday. We had an ultrasound to check everything out and Gabby is petite, but perfect. Good news for sure! They guesstimate her weight at around 5 1/2 lbs and she has a head full of hair (which is no surprise considering Brian and I were both born with heads full of hair). We couldn't see her face as she is already in position for delivery. The doctor then checked me and I am already almost 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced which was a big shock! Of course, we don't know what will happen from here on out; I could stay that way for weeks or I could progress some more. Either way, Gabby needs to stay put until Brian gets back at the end of the month!
