39 weeks tomorrow!!!

Well, the homestretch is here. Tomorrow marks 39 weeks. I made it! Unless God has other plans, the baby will be here Wednesday morning. 2 whole days. I think I can make it!!
Things have been pretty laid back around here, that is until this morning. Rob woke up & couldn't open his eyes. They were mattered shut, really watery & really red. He seemed to be in quite a bit of pain. I called Dr Billars office, (my eye Dr) to see if they could get Rob in today. They were booked, but told me to bring him in & they would see him in between patients. Good thing we took him in. He ended up having to have surgery on his eye this morning. Somehow, Rob got a piece of metal embedded in the cornea of his right eye. Dr Billars said that had we not been in & gotten this taken care of, Rob would have ended up in the hospital within 2 days. That could have been a small issue! Anyway, he isn't sure how it happened, only thinks that when he went to the leaf drop yesterday, it was super windy & he got something in it then. He said yesterday a couple of times that his eye was bugging him & asked me if I could see anything in it, but I couldn't. He's home now & says it feels a bit better. I'm pretty sure that it still stings quite a bit and it's still pretty watery, but at least he can open it in a dark room. Dr Billars said that he should be feeling much better tomorrow.
Well, that's the latest in a nut shell. I don't know that I will post again before the baby. Rob & I have to be at the hospital on Wednesday morning at 5:30am. We'll keep everyone posted!

38 weeks 1 day

Well, I met with Dr Scott again today. Still having contractions, but nothing more than I've been having since I was sick. The baby's heart rate was in the 120's today. My BP was 128/72 which is EXCELLENT and I gained another pound. Things seem to be going well & I'm supposed to keep doing them just as I am. We're still planning on next Wednesday, unless the big guy says differently!
I'm doing well over all, not much to complain about, ha ha! The baby's still moving around, kicking like crazy at times & then not at all other times. I found out the other night, that if I'm sitting in a chair and Elleh comes up to me, stands between my legs & asks for a kiss, that I can bend over to give her one. Something about a belly getting in my way! Who'da thought!!! I could use a little more sleep, but that will come to.
My bag is packed. I had a flu shot today, Rob gets his tomorrow & the girls get the flu mist tomorrow. After that, there's a few cleaning things to do, (that darn maid is slacking!!!) and then we're as ready as we're going to get.
I'll keep everyone posted!
