pregnancy update

I can't believe our little boy will be here so soon! I changed my blog ticker so each time I view it, it says how many days are left--24 as of today! I'm still reading through a couple of books and mentally gearing up for another birth. I'm feeling good, we are right on schedule with weekly check-ups now and checks (ahem). As of last visit, I'm already at the dilation and effacement I was with Maggie at 41 weeks, so this is GOOD news for someone who is going for a VBAC. Keep praying that we'll be able to have him in this manner. Our little man is still quite the mover and stretcher (Maggie was a kicker--would move sporadically and with quick kicks--while he is always stretching, stretching, stretching). It's been neat to tell a difference, though there is no difference in how I have carried both of them--low and out. It's funny how some people stop me and say, "Wow, you are big! When are you due? You must be having a boy because you are carrying so low." And I just have to smile and say that I carried my daughter the same way; thus, not all wives tales are true. :)

I'm sure you are all chomping at the bit to know his name...be patient! He's coming and at this point, I'll take him any time he chooses to show up.

  2. You made it...sorta. I can't wait to 'meet' him and watch him grow up. Good luck on the lack of sleep while chasing around a 2 year old. It can be done, I promise. May the Lord bless you with restful sleep even if it's only a few hours at a time. Miss you!
