Johanna Update

And of course there are changes and rearranges.  We do nothing the simple way.

OK, so I was supposed to have an appointment and an Ultrasound today.  The ultrasound tech had sick babies, so I only had the appointment with my Dr. H.  That's OK, we're rescheduled for Tuesday for the ultrasound.  The ultrasound was more for me anyway(I wanted to see how small/big we though Jo might be when she's born.  So, ultrasound on Tuesday afternoon.  I can't wait.  There's something magical about seeing your baby.

Here's where we have the changes.  Johanna was scheduled to arrive via c-section on 10/30/09.  We were given the option to move that up to 10/23/09, and I(being the pregnant lady that's tired of being pregnant) almost jumped off of the table with excitement.  Of course, we would like to move things along, and get her here sooner.  If you know your calendar, or just checked it, then you know that the 23rd is only 15 days from today.  I think a loud Hallelujah, and a Praise the Lord are in order.  And, as an added bonus, my OB will be on call that weekend.  YAY!!!!!!!!!  He is hands down, my fave.  There are other great docs in our area, but he is my fave, and that's why I choose to go to his office and not the others.

As far as baby news, there's really nothing new to report.  Johanna had a great heart beat again today.  In the 140's, where it's been the ENTIRE time.  He didn't mention anything about her size, and I didn't think to ask.  I was too excited about only having 15 days left.  I had the dreaded Strep B test today(I was actually Strep B positive with Clayton, and it only required antibiotics at delivery, so no big deal).  Actually it's not that bad, and it's over with until we decide to have more babies.  And on a positive note, no swelling today. I guess if I would actually slow down, rest, and take better care of myself then I wouldn't have swelling in the first place.  That's just very hard to do.  I enjoy my role as wife and mother(it's what God created me to do), and don't like relinquishing any part of those roles to anyone else, but I'm trying.

I guess that's that for today.  Just a few more days until what we have termed D-Day!
