Sitting. Waiting. Wishing.

The title explains this whole post verbatim. 

While I sit. wait. and wish. (oh, so patiently!) on this little fella...

I've been doing a WHOLE LOT of this...
Don't get me wrong here...I wouldn't give anything up for a relaxing day at the pool, but when you're 38 weeks pregnant, very uncomfortable, can't sleep at night, can't hardly eat because you have NO more room in or anywhere near your stomach, and about to JUMP OUT OF YOUR SKIN to meet your itty bitty I find myself reevaluating wanting any more R & R at the pool. 
Enough whining though for now...I had my 37 week appointment yesterday and Dr. Patel did an ultrasound because Hampton was measuring bigger than expected.  Let's just say 'ole boy is HEALTHY and hasn't missed any food I've consumed in the last 9 months apparently in which I am NOT complaining (just a little nervous for delivery!).  As of now, he is 38 weeks and weighs 7 lbs. 10 oz.  So, as Dr. Patel put it, "it's just a waiting game at this point."  I have 2 weeks left with another appointment next Thursday where he will check to see if I've made any progress unless Hampton decides to stop being stubborn and comes before that.  Geez.  Any day now Hampton.  Any day.  Needless to say, we are still so thankful that he is perfectly healthy and could not be any more excited to meet our little guy.  My grandmother, Mama Hughes', birthday is next Wednesday, May 18.  I can so do that.  And it would be really special for Hampton to share his birthday with his great grandmother. (I'm actually secretly praying for this day).  We shall see.  Until then though, I will continue to sit. wait. and wish. :)

Oh, and any prayers that he will grace us with his presence in the next day or so are welcomed and greatly appreciated at this time!!!
