Sorry for the delay

Sorry it's been so long! I've been so busy trying to get everything ready at work for when I leave and getting everything ready at the house for the baby.

Everything is going well here. I'm now 38 weeks along, which means that it's time for another picture!

I feel like my stomach is getting so big!

So here's an update on how Koryn is doing. Two weeks ago we had an ultrasound to see how big she is. The ultrasound technician told us that she's is growing well and weighed 5 pounds 12 ounces. Since this was a couple of weeks ago I'm sure she's over 6 pounds by now. The technician also guessed that she'll weigh between 6 1/2 and 7 pounds if she goes the full 40 weeks. I'm really hoping for the 6 1/2, but I'm hoping more for a healthy baby!

This week I went in for my 37 week appointment and I had my first exam to see if I'm making any progress towards labor. I was very surprised and excited to know that I'm now 1 cm dilated and almost 100% thinned out. The 1 cm part didn't surprise me too much, but the 100% did! It’s surreal to think that she really could come any day now. Justin and I both have feelings of excitement to meet her, but also a little bit of nervousness since we do not really know what to expect. The excitement definitely outweighs the nervousness though.

We've also been hard at work getting Koryn's nursery set up. We still have a few minor things to do like hanging pictures, but here's what we've accomplished so far!

Her crib!

I love how her room looks! It's funny that her room is the nicest room in our house! Our little girl is so spoiled! She's so loved already that I can't imagine what it's gonna be like once she's here.
