10 more weeks...more or less.

I am 30 weeks pregnant.  So we are in the real countdown!  Just 10 short/long weeks left until this new baby arrives.  I had an ultrasound with Maternal Fetal Medicine docs on 10/5 and baby is still showing a slightly larger area near it's is actually the "renal pelvis" that they are looking at.  But the good news is that my placenta has shifted into a favorable position, so it is no longer covering my cervix at all!

I have to go back for one more ultrasound with MFM on 10/26 and the doctor said they will know for sure by that time (32 weeks) whether or not the renal pelvis is too big/a problem.  So 2 more weeks of waiting for that.

This is a super busy month and I know it will just get busier as we get into November and then December! 

Isabel will be showing our baby goats in the NC State Fair in about a week!  So there is a lot of preparation for that since this will be our first time showing any sort of animal in a competition!  I'm sure there will be a learning curve ;)

Then we have Halloween and All Saint's Day the following weekend and right after that we zip up to Washington, D.C. to see some religious sisters take their vows!  I am so excited about this trip because we will visit the National Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and our family is going to make a family consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary while we are there.  We also get to take a tour of a Franciscan's just going to be a treat for our family and I am so looking forward to it! 

Then....well, like I said it will be November and then Thanksgiving and Advent starting....whew.  Then it's baby time!

Have I said that I cannot wait for baby time?  I am so excited to meet this new little person!
