Week 36 and we are booked in!

We have a date!! This week we had our big appointment with the hospital to talk about what our plans were and to schedule the c-section.

We all agreed on June 26th.
The Dr wanted to actually go for 29th or 1st but they were both booked out anyways, and he wouldn't allow me to go as early as we negotiated in the
The surgeon we met with was fantastic and i really would like to hope by some chance i get him on the day to get this baby out.
He had Aaron get up and find the heartbeat with the Doppler, instead of him doing it, which was a really cool thing to do and i think Aaron enjoyed playing Dr for 2 minutes.
My pelvis has split, i found this out by the crazy amount of pain i felt when he went to get my fundal height and i flinched in pain not expecting it at all to feel like it did.
He is still head down and i assume will stay that way from here on out.
His heartbeat was in the 120's, which hasn't changed since we had the trip to hospital for the kidney infection a while back.
My blood pressure came back great so the migraines i have been experiencing every 2 days or so is not due to pre-eclampsia like i had feared.Which is fantastic.
My urine was clear of infections etc. So all in all it was great
We got the admission papers and were sent up stairs to book in, that's now all done and i meet with the anesthetist on 22nd to discuss pain relief options and how i go under anesthetic etc. A quick physical will be done.
Outside of the baby stuff, we had another series of unfortunate events this week when Aaron's car was stolen.Yes.
We seem to be that unlucky.We now have both cars gone out of action with 2 weeks to go until our baby is born.Woo.Not.
It is now inevitable that we purchase another car in the very near soon as we work out just how we can go about doing that.
So as it stands, if all goes to plan, we have 2 weeks and we will be parents.
Scary, Scary and exciting...
Week 36
Your baby is almost ready and so are you! The only organ still to mature is the lungs. While certainly you are both growing anxious to meet, remember that each day (up to 42 weeks), that your little one stays within your womb will multiply his chances to breathe on his own.
If he hasn't already, this week your baby may drop into the birth canal. While breathing for mom becomes easier, walking may be the exact opposite! If he's not your first baby, this "lightening" may not occur until right before labor.
Fat is dimpling your baby's elbows and knees, and forming creases in the neck and wrists.
His skin is growing smooth and, shall we say it, "baby" soft.
His gums are very rigid. It won't be many months before you'll see his teeth.
She has a fully developed pair of kidneys and her liver has begun processing some waste products.
Your child's average size is now 18.66 inches (47.4cm) and 5.78 pounds (2622 g). Between now and birth she will gain about an ounce a day!
