Well, with so few weeks to go I better get to updating
This baby girl has been on my mind a lot lately. The reality of a newborn in the house again has become a little bit too much for me to process as of late. How will she sleep? How will I recover? How will River transition this time?
(gonna go ahead and say not to well based on his current ability to handle if you offer him the wrong spoon with this cereal)
Will she have reflux or colic? Will she go to the NICU? Will I go into labor?
Will we all be admitted into a psych ward?
Those are my thoughts.
And then thankfully I remember that there is no point in worrying or thinking through all those things. They worked out last time. They will work out again. God is sovereign and his plan is good. Though it might be hard or sleepless .. its still good. And thankfully that and the other promises he gave me when I found out I was pregnant provide a whole lotta peace.
I need peace in my life.
So baby girl is doing good. I have an appt today.
Im 34 weeks .. but we only have 5 weeks left until we meet her! WOOO HOO! Crazy times.
She is a mover and shaker. Neither River or Wylder moved like she does. I mean, it feels like she is playing "just dance" in my tummy. Its not that she moves more than them .. its that she punches.. kicks.. and jumps around way harder. (which scares me) I need to get it on camera because my stomach is constantly bouncing all over the place. Its so strange. And glorious.
Still no name.
Surgery is scheduled. Freeland's PTO days have been requested. And my moms flight up here has been booked.
Oh and big news! I think I experienced "nesting" for the first time. It only lasted 3-4 days but it was super awesome while it lasted. It started with cooking. Then cleaning everything I could get my hands on. In one night I spent an hour alone cleaning just our coffee machine! UMMMM.. that shouldnt take an hour. But it got a detailing and I was so focused it was strange. The stove, oven, microwave, floors, all the laundry that ever existed, the sheets, the beds, the bathrooms .. even our couch cushions all got washed. And then I crashed and havent felt motivated since.
between 33-34 weeks. Hi Sambo in the background! ;)
Im definitely carrying her different. Well, I say this because for the first time ever my belly button popped out!!! Thats never happened before so I have to assume she is sitting different. It feels different thats for sure. my waddling is definitely humorous to Freeland.
Im tired and not sleeping well. And just getting over being sick. Being sick and being pregnant shouldnt go in the same sentence. But praise the Lord for the other 33 weeks that have been healthy so far.
*this last picture was on Tuesday. (its the one day a week I get dressed for bible study .. well that and church)
Oh and I'll have to share how the Lord healed our little girl too. I'll work on that post soon! This is getting super long!
