A quick update...

Bela is still a little peanut in size but she is growing. She's up again to the 15th percentile..we're very glad she's back above the 10th and hope she stays there. I sure feel like she's growing..I'm not sure I have any room left for her, but I'll certainly do my best to make some for her to grow and get stronger. She's given us a couple little scares when she was nonresponsive on a couple of her nonstress tests that we do twice a week. But they did some further testing and she's still doing just fine. She just likes to scare us and be nice and quiet for her tests. We're all breathing a little easier now that she made it to 36 weeks. Doctors say her chances get better and better each day now that she's past the 36 week mark. I'm starting to feel myself slow down alittle now and am feeling the achiness of a full term baby inside me. I'm feeling lots of contractions these days too...painless contractions, but they are coming on stronger. Of course that dosn't mean too much, but we'll see. I'm anxious to meet this little girl that has already impacted our lives so much, and see what she is going to do..

This very well could be one of the best days this year...my sweet mother in law sent her maid over here to do some much needed cleaning. I can't tell you how amazing it is to hear the vacuum going and I'm not vacuuming! I've had a lingering cold for a couple weeks, so it's made staying on top of housework (and any other type of work)really hard. I really can't thank her enough, it's the best gift I could've gotten right now!

We continue to be amazed by the love and support we are getting from people...From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We are so blessed! We'll keep you posted!

I am so happy to hear that Bela is doing good and is past 36 weeks. I hope that she continues to get stronger and stronger. Thanks for the updates - I worry and pray for you and your family everyday. We miss you guys - please keep us posted on what happens in the next few weeks!!! And tell Benson that Jordan says hi and misses him.

Wow, I can't believe you are already 36 weeks. I'm glad to hear things are looking as good as they can. What a lucky baby girl to have such a sweet mother! See ya soon!
