Only One Week to Go!

Today I had my last doctor's appointment and non-stress test here in Sheboygan.  Everything looks great with the baby, so we are excited about next Tuesday's delivery in the Fetal Concerns Unit at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee.  By this time next week, we will have a little girl.  Soon after birth, she will be whisked off to the NICU and be prepared for her surgery to correct a small amount of intestine that is in a little sac outside of her body.  It's scary having a baby at 42, but we have been prepared for this since she was only 12 1/2 weeks inside me, and are confident that other than this little bump in the road, she will be a normal, healthy little baby.
 Here is the latest photo of my belly progress - I apologize for the graininess of the photos this week.  As you can see, Paddy is very curious as to what has been happening around our house and has been spending almost all of his time as close to me as possible.
 Dear husband put together this crib on Saturday, only to discover once assembled, it wouldn't fit through the doorway to our room!  So, disassemble and reassemble!  Live and learn, right?  
I love the way it looks, but Paddy's not so sure!  I think he thinks it might be a new "crate" for him!  It's from Dwell Studio for Target, ordered from Amazon.  Very cute & modern and reasonably priced.  The bedding came from BabyEarth.  Now, we are waiting on the mattress, and we should be set.  

Then we will just wait for the baby to come home and settle in.  They have told us it could be from 2-6 weeks, and at least one of us will be at the Ronald McDonald House during that time.  Grandparents will be in and out, and daddy will be back and forth for work.  Paddy will be playing with his friends at Central Bark.  

We have a mantra at our house that "Everything's going our way," and so far, everything has!

  1. Good Luck! You both will do great! Get lots of rest and dinner dates in the next few days. I am so jealous of that crib. I wanted the Oeuf one before Coco came and am sad they waited to make affordable look alike!

  2. Oh, I've been reading your blog for a while and thought it time to say hello and best wishes.

    I had my last baby two weeks before I turned 42 and he is wonderful.

    It sounds like your little one will be in very good hands. Best wishes for a safe delivery and surgery for her and that you are home with her sleeping in that adorable crib very soon.
