My last OB appt before Lila arrives!

Monday was my LAST OB appt. in Omaha!! Lila was 4 lbs. and 15oz. The ultrasound tech said she has more hair so I went to Target and purchased some headbands. We were able to see her diaphragm working. She would breathe for 20 seconds then we would have to do it again. The Dr. wanted to see her do 30 seconds which she finally did! We are hoping that she will be ready on Feb. 8Th. That is still the plan. For now I am still on bed rest and will be having non-stress tests done every 4 days until Monday the 8Th. We will arrive on Monday morning at 9am for an amniocentesis and then have a stress test done following that. We will be dismissed to wait for a phone call regarding the results of the amnio. If her lungs are mature we will deliver at 2pm that afternoon!! Please pray for a safe and healthy little girl! We are getting more and more anxious as the days go. I know that seems backwards to you but when you lose a baby at 38 weeks it almost doesn't seem like it is going to happen. We are praying for her to be healthy and for the c-section to go as smooth as possible.

Brian/boys has been working really hard on the nursery and we will post pics as soon as we have it completed, hopefully this weekend! I gave my boys each a canvas to paint a picture for their sister! They had soo much fun with this! Here is a sneak peek of the walls/paintings.

Hi Courtney!
I have been following your blog for some time now, so I thought I better leave a comment so I wasn't so 'stalker-ish'!
Anyway, I am so happy for you-I can't wait to see pictures of Lila. LOVE the room colors btw. Oh, and your post on the vanilla-you totally made me want to do it...i'm just waiting on my bottles to get here!
I will continue to keep you all in my prayers and look forward to more updates!
Take care!
Kris Mullersman :)

The boys look like they were having a blast painting. I hope Brian was having as much fun! Just keep praying everything will work out fine. There isnt much longer.
