26 hours, 11 minutes and 33 seconds...

Our little miracle
It's official...Bean will be here tomorrow at 6:00 p.m.!!! We went for our pre-op this past Monday and everything was perfect. Bean was head down, nice strong heartbeat and I've been feeling much better as well. Still having a ton of contractions and a little trouble breathing, but nothing unbearable. After meeting with my OB, my husband and I went for my last NST and of course Bean was being stubborn again. Everything was fine except that Bean was so relaxed that the nurse couldn't get the heartbeat to fluctuate like she'd hoped. Basically, Bean is simply relaxed and ready to be born.

So, I'm back to relaxing and keeping my feet up and counting down the hours. I thought I'd be really nervous at this point, but I'm feeling extremely relaxed...I even slept 6 solid hours last night before my nightly journey to the restroom! Too much information...maybe...but it felt great! My JRA is still feeling great too. I've had some aches and pains in my back, hips, ankles and feet, but what pregnant woman doesn't. I have to admit, I'm loving this whole pregnancy remission thing and I'm a little scared to see it go.

As far as prepping for tomorrow, I have to stop eating/drinking by 10:00 a.m., check-in at Labor and Delivery by 5:00 p.m. to be ready for my C-Section at 6:00 p.m. Doesn't seem so bad minus the no eating and drinking...I'll have to find some major distractions for that. I'm sure my nerves will kick in about 5:01 tomorrow night. :)

For now, our bags are packed, car seat is ready, planning one last date night with my hubby tonight, a filling breakfast in the morning and then it's everything Bean from there on out. I can't wait!!!
