The waiting game...

So here I am 35 weeks pregnant! I'm large and in charge... 


   At the last baby appointment one of my midwives told me to come in 3 weeks later rather than one since I'm doing so awesomely. We were pleased! Another week we don't have to drive 4-5 hours for a 10 minute appointment. Then today, 2 weeks into that 3 weeks I get a call wanting to reschedule for next week instead. I accepted not having much any other choice. At this appointment I will 36 weeks and 6 days. That means I am FULL-TERM the next day! This seems unreal that the time is upon us already. Link has a safe window from January 26- March 1st. A day earlier or after means being transferred to Chapel Hills hospital due to "risking out" of the birthing center.  When will you come Link???  I'm soo curious! 


   In addition to our baby boy arriving soon, I just found out that I have gotten into the Master's/ Internship program at East Carolina!  Not only do I get an internship that is incredibly competitive but after only TWO years I will come out with my Master's in Nutrition Science as well!!!  My long term goals of starting a Wellness private practice are becoming more and more realistic! 


   I feel much better mentally and much more prepared to bring this baby boy into the world!  Let's get this going!
