36 weeks and counting

Today was my 36th week appointment, which meant it was an ultrasound appointment. I have been looking forward to today for 2 weeks, because I was anxious to find out how big my baby girl is.
Einstein was a big baby--he was 9lbs 2oz, granted he was 5 days late, but still he was big! I really had a feeling she would be smaller, because first off, she's a girl and girl's are usually smaller. But lo and behold, my little girl is already around 7lbs! If i deliver on my due date she will be around 8 1/2 to 9lbs...yikes! Not only that, but her head is already measuring at 40 weeks--double yikes! If I wasn't already nervous about labor before, now i'm doubly so.
Today was very eye opening for me, not just because I'm going have a plump little girl, but because it never felt so real like it did today. As I sit here writing this post I think keep thinking, in just a couple weeks I will be holding her--caressing her, talking to her, changing her dirty diapers...I've been waiting so long this that I can't believe that she will be so soon---in a matter of weeks to be exact.

How about you...have you ever been so excited about something that you feel like you have to pinch yourself to see if it's real?
