39 week update

I think I’ve finally reached the point where I am ready to get things moving here. There aren’t any definitive signs yet, but goodness I’m ready for them! Of course there are still things that still “need” to be done, but I really don’t care that much anymore! We both got haircuts, my nails are […]

37 week update

Well, I wasn’t going to write anything today but we had another doctor’s appointment. They measured me the same as I was 2 weeks ago (maybe because baby dropped lower) and sent me to get an ultrasound again. Little lady is estimated to be 5 lbs 13 oz, which is still a little small. It […]

All normal feelings! You can take as many outfits as you want to the hospital-you are the Mommy & she IS a Girl;) Enjoy all of these wonderful moments…even the little fist in your side. My kids still love to hear how I could see their little foot or feel their hand when they would kick or move.

David and I got a good laugh, reminiscing about having the twins (only 3 1/2 years ago!) I came home from the hospital wearing the same ugly sweatpants and Gators hoodie I was wearing four days before, when they were delivered. They wore hospital blankets and caps. It was Christmas Eve when we went home, and it was cold!
At their two-week check-up, the doctor asked me about a rash on Ryan’s back. Well, I didn’t know! Then she asked, “Have you bathed the babies yet?” I said, no, that it was too cold to take their clothes off! We took care of the business end, and covered them right back up!
In my defense, they were premature and low-birth weight, and for the first 2 weeks, we had been in and out of the hospital with my pre-eclampsia, but really!
I hope your experience is prettier!

I’ve enjoyed the ride reading your blog! What a wondrous thing the Lord is doing! May the Lord enable you to get what you need to done, for His glory and your good.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Not long now…

  Photo taken at 36 weeks Tomorrow marks 37 weeks, which is officially full term! Time is flying by and I can’t believe there will be a little one in our lives very soon! A lot of people told us that the 3rd trimester can feel very slow, but it has gone by so incredibly […]

Thank you for posting this. I’m one week behind you and am so excited and nervous to be a mama to a little girl! There’s so much responsibility, so many ways I will influence her life, and yet with Christ there is also so much grace.
You are in my prayers as you prepare for sweet baby E to come! <3
