All the things they are having you do are for the safety & well-being of your baby ~ You are almost there, Lacie!!
Be patient & try to relax as much as you can with some deep deep slow breathing & visualizing that baby in your arms. Set small goals like telling yourself, "just 2 more days & I will 37 weeks!! One week closer to holding you, Baby!"
As each new milestone passes, convince yourself that her lungs ARE much stronger & ready to work perfectly outside your body. You are only DAYS away from meeting your new daughter, Lace!! Hold on ....
BTW ~ our daughter (25) is going to the ObGyn 3 times a week for non-stress tests bcuz she lost her first baby boy (9-21-11) @ 8 months gestation from excessive stress, uncontrollable BP & protein in her urine. We use visualization, deep breathing & relaxing music while laying there in the examining suite. It works very well!!
