On Friday I was 37 weeks pregnant, so I’m 37 1/2 weeks now, only 18 days to go until my due date, yeah! Only 3 more midwife appointments, and we will have a new little family member. I can’t wait to meet him. I’m just a little nervous about the birth, but that’s only because I’ve been around this block a few times before and I know how much work and pain is involved. I always tell myself when I start to get scared to go through the delivery, it’s only a day. And when my contractions seem more than I can bear, I call on my Lord for help and He helps me to remember to take them one contraction at a time. I’m so thankful that I have an encouraging and sympathetic husband who doesn’t leave my side. Maybe I will be brave enough to let go of his hand while I’m pushing the baby out so he can catch the baby, we’ll see :) You know, if you think of it, I’m praying that Chris and I will both be really rested for this delivery. The others we have both been really tired because of lack of sleep and I would just love to go into labor not so tired. I just wonder what a difference it would make.
Well, I’m working on uploading all of our pictures from the pumpkin patch this year. We went on Saturday and got some really cute pictures.
Here’s Chris and I comparing pumpkins, I think his is bigger ;)
