Hospital bound and Weekend plans

Today I am headed to the hospital to have a PICC line put in my arm. 
I was trying really hard to get through this pregnancy without one, 
but my veins are pretty much nonexistent with all the
  scar tissue on my arms from the burns.
This causes me a little anxiety and stress. 
Dr. Judd wants me to have the PICC line in just to be safe if anything should happen
during labor and delivery.
 Dr. J. wants the PICC line in my arm so he can have access when I have 
my tummy reconstruction surgery a few days after the delivery.
I am nervous.  I've had several PICC lines and they always hurt!!
 Good thing Mr. Nielson will be there to hold my hand!
And my excitement for Lil Peanut's arrival really trumps everything!
I can't even think about it without crying. 
 She has a lot of little people who are just as excited about her arrival as I am!
Especially four little Nies!
Tomorrow might be the last day our family goes skiing this year.
(I doubt I will go this time for obvious reasons.) 
Mr. Nielson is going to take one last run with the children while I sleep- probably. 
 I am also planning to have a fun St. Patrick's Day dinner,
 (vegetarian of course...but come to think of it, corned beef actually sounds kind of good).
 Lucy and her family are coming up to celebrate. 
 Claire said if little peanut came on St. Patrick's Day we should name her Patty. 
Probably not, but cute. 

 Spiritual Enlightenment here: It's coming! Set your calendars! Come listen to living prophets 
General Conference Don't know what that is? 
 Go here.
