Pregnancy Update: Any Day Now

Now we're at 39 weeks gestation and it could be any day now that a new little one will grace us with her presence! Physically and mentally, I'm more than ready. There are one or two things that need to get done, but if they don't, it's not a big deal. I'm content with that.

I do covet your prayers though. Being this big and uncomfortable makes me more prone to being grumpy. Please pray that God would give me grace to show grace to my husband and little girls.

Last week I only went to the gym once. That particular day I was worn out by dinner time and had no desire to be on my feet at all. I think my gym days are over until the baby comes. When I go, I don't have enough energy to serve my family - which is more necessary by far. I've gained 30 pounds so far. I don't know how much of that is water weight from swelling, but I suppose it doesn't really matter at this point. I'm pleased with the amount of discipline during this pregnancy

Wednesday I go for my OB check-up and find out what, if anything, is going on. I sure hope so. I'm praying that God will be merciful and allow the baby to come early and that labor will start with the breaking of my water. I'm getting a lot of *reminders* (read "nagging") about when to head to the hospital. I trust that God will take care of that. It's too much stress for me to count the minutes between every Braxton-Hicks contraction. Even if I don't make it to the hospital for the birth, there's always an EMT and ambulance that can come catch the baby, right?! I'll just fill the tub with water and let her go. :-)

Praying for you!

I hope the rest of your pregnancy and birth goes smoothly!

I love all the pictures of you when your pregnant.
Your pretty all the time. But your even prettier pregnant. :-)
