34 Weeks

We have now reached 34 weeks. Although it seems like forever that I have been pregnant, the end seems to be quickly approaching. Especially since I have a "to-do" list a mile long.


Apparently I can kiss sleep good-bye. It is hard to get comfortable and the nights that I can get comfortable, insomnia hits me and I can't sleep. And for the record...there is NOTHING good on TV at 3am. (sigh) I guess I am just getting prepared for the "all nighters" I'll be pulling really soon. Although some days I am not comfortable or feeling my best, at least I can say that I am not miserable all the time just yet. I know it is coming. Of course, if I am on my feet alot during the day, I regret it by mid afternoon.

At my last appointment Addison's heart rate was 158. My doctor declared that we would probably have another very active little girl. As long as she is healthy, I'll take active. Audrey already keeps us on our toes and wears us out...so I figure at least we are prepared for an active one :) haha.
We have set Addison's official "birth" day. (and I use the word "official" loosely) I am scheduled for another c-section on February 15...so not a Valentines Day baby, and not on my brother's birthday (the 16th). She will have a day all her own...and that is assuming that she doesn't have a different time frame in mind. If I do go into labor before February 15, then she will still be delivered via c-section as planned...just on a different day :) I am hoping and praying that she will hold out until the 15th because that would make the logistics of having help with Audrey much easier.
So please keep us in your prayers as this time quickly approaches. I am going through many emotions and worries right now as the time draws near. It helps to know that I have many prayer warriors out there.
And now for a little info on Miss Addison (according to websites):
Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds and is around 18 inches long. Her fat layers- that regulate her body temperature once she is born- are filling her out making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well.
