May the Lord find us faithful.

I honestly have never gone this far past my due date before. But I will update that things are moving in that direction and my husband is predicting a baby by midnight tomorrow 12/15...time will tell. I do have a DR appointment tomorrow afternoon if nothing moves forward before then.

May the Lord find us faithful.

Still Packing Baby

I attempted to update last night but there were some huge computer or internet provider issues so I just went to bed. I still have not had baby. I really hope things happen today as my Mom leaves in just 6 days!! We have been keeping busy with activity inside and outside of the home.

Monday evening, Mom and I went shopping, lots of walking.

Tuesday day, shopping with the blessings, more walking.

Wednesday, DR appointment and shopping with my husband...more walking.

Thursday, walking in the snow with big, heavy boots on.

Friday,  a "gotta clean now" hour then a trip to the Ice Park, more walking in heavy boots and I even went down the slide with the kids. Still no labor, not even a twinge of contractions. I do have a few pictures from the Ice Park though.

Here is my Mom and the blessings

40 weeks and 1 day pregnant!!

It may be time to remove the pregnancy tickers, they are adding days on now and that is not fun to look at, I am officially one day overdue, which is pretty normal for me, my children stay cozy until 40 weeks and 2 days, so we will see what tomorrow holds.

I did just return from a walk through the snow with the blessings and my Mom, so maybe that will get things going....only time will tell.

May the Lord find us faithful.

May the Lord find us faithful.

A special request

I had a special request from a friend who is out of town...she asked for a picture to be posted on my blog. So, here I am four days before my due date.

I thought I had better update lest ye think I have had a baby and failed to post. My little blessing is still safely tucked away inside, although the crazy movements of past nights has slowed so these are the "last days, maybe even hours!!!" of pregnancy.

I am up earlier than normal for me. We have trimmed the tree and then the boxes half opened and spilling out all around the house were corralled into the dining room(last weekend) and there they have sat. Today they are getting shut and the last items out for decorating and then they can go away when my husband can get to them. At least they will be closed and neatly stacked. Later this morning I will be getting my hair trimmed. It hasn't been trimmed since August and is quite over due for maintaince.

We had our church Christmas party last night and our Pastor says our baby will be born by 8:15 tonight, we will see....he thought all the laughing at the gift exchange would bring on the labor. We did laugh alot.

 May the Lord find us faithful.

Today's Doctor Visit

Today's visit was fairly uneventful. I may be dilated to 1, which in all reality means nothing. I had to schedule one more appointment as they had not scheduled me past today's visit. So, hopefully by next Wednesday we will have a baby. Regardless of what happens we should have a baby within 9-11 days! I usually don't go early but I do not go over either. On the good side, I still feel great, oh, I sometimes need a nap but I am overall very much able to do what ever needs to be done. The Christmas tree and a few other decorations are up. The boxes are still out but I may do a little extra decorating as this week progresses. School is scheduled as regularly this week as it is our last week before our Christmas/Baby break starts and Nana will be here next week as well. I have to wait until after tomorrow evening to have this little blessings since our Ladies Christmas Tea is tomorrow! After that I am all about labor.

May the Lord find us faithful.
