So soon

Or at least that is what I keep telling myself each morning, afternoon and night! :)

Grey should be here sometime at the end of March.  She has done very well at her NSTs, ultrasounds and check-ups, so I do not think she will be arriving earlier than the end of March.  She has about one more month of "baking" and then we will get to MEET OUR DAUGHTER!!  One month IS soon, right?

Baby Grey:
Last time we measured her in an ultrasound, she was 4 pounds, although we don't measure every week...so I am guessing she is a good 4.5 at least, if not more now. 

She hosts her very own dance party around 2-4am every single night.  Feeling her move is something I will always be grateful for, even if that means we have special bonding time in the middle of the night!

Our little girl has been so low that even with all the ultrasounds we get, we still have yet to see her face.  Yesterday, we were able to capture a glimpse of her lips though, and I think they look like Chet's! :)  She was swallowing and practice breathing throughout the whole u/s. 

Even though we have yet to see if she has chubby cheeks, we have seen some chunk already on her arms and legs.  Yay!  We are praying for a healthy little "Erwin chunk"! 

Physically I feel pretty good for the most part.  Because Grey is positioned so low, I have the normal "pregnancy backache", but nothing to complain about.  Third trimester sleeping patterns have hit, so last night I was literally out by 9pm.  (Of course I woke up 12 times after that, but wow!  9pm...I'm getting old!)

Emotionally I feel more anxious now than I did months ago.  I have been praying about this a lot.  I realize that our God loves Grey infinitely more than I could ever love her (ouch, huh?), and that ultimately she is His.  Worrying does nothing but make me miserable.  I have really felt the prayers of my friends and family though, as I never get "lost" in worry.

Dried apricots (without sulfur, thank you sweet Paula!!) and Greek yogurt are daily staples in my diet.  I may never eat those two food items after she is here, but boy oh boy do I eat them a lot now.  We are still being blessed with amazing food from our church friends, which is abundantly awesome.

Grey's nursery is going to be done THIS week!  I can't wait to post photos on Friday or Saturday! :)

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
