The time has arrived.

18 hours and 40 minutes. That's how long until Natalie Marie joins us. I went to the doctor today and after my exam he wanted to do an ultrasound to determine the baby's weight. She appears to be 7lbs and a few ounces. I have a small frame, so there was concern about the baby making it's way through the birth canal. After some discussion the doctor and I decided to schedule a C-section. So tomorrow at 7am it is.

I have to say I was very overwhelmed with everything that happened in a span of 20 - 30 minutes. I went from not knowing anything about when she'd be born to knowing the exact time. John is working today, so he wasn't at the appointment with me. The doctor told me to discuss it with John and if we needed to cancel or I wanted to think about it over the weekend, just to give him a call. Of course John wanted whatever is best for me and the baby, so everything's a go. It's been an emotional morning in ways that I can't really put into words. Now that I've had some time to let it all soak in I'm a lot more at ease. Bags are packed, the house has had a dusting and vacuum, and some last minute laundry is in the dryer. I'll give you three guesses on how I plan to spend the rest of the afternoon to relax........

If you guessed something other than scrapbooking, you need to visit my blog more often! :o) So I most likely won't be posting for a few days, but as soon as we get home and get settled I'll be sure to post LOTS of pictures!

Best of luck to you your family and mostly little Natalie! I pray all goes well for you! I think it's a bit more intense to know the exact time and to have to endure the "wait game". I also would spend the time scrapping!
We can't wait to see pictures!
