The wait is over...

I had an amnio this morning (not as bad as I thought it would be), and then was hooked to a monitor to check the baby for an hour... and then sent home to wait (and nap). Just got a call a little bit ago that yes, her lungs are mature and she will be born tomorow! I was preparing myself for no and waiting another week all afternoon and was quite suprised by the news, but I'll take it! So, tomorow starts a new chapter! Elliot will no longer be the youngest, I'll have continued sleepless nights, not due to pregnancy anymore, but due to a crying and hungry baby, I won't be as mobile as I'm used to, I won't be taking naps every day for an hour or more... ahhhh, all the things I will miss. But I know she will be worth it! So, stay tuned for a baby name and pictures in the near future!
