An Update on me and the baby

39+ weeks pregnant, ready to have this baby!

This picture was taken today, and as you can see, I’m still pregnant. And a little tired! I had a long night last night, with two, two hour sessions of contractions an “stuff” and thinking that the baby was coming sometime soon. And even this morning, we decided not to go to church at our church (an hour away) because I continued to have strong contractions even after I got out of bed for a good couple hours. But alas, the contractions stopped and just left me tired and a little bummed that he wasn’t coming again, at least not today. Oh well. Doesn’t he know that I want to see him and hold him and I’m really ready now?!

We have our camera now, so he can come :) And tomorrow is the first day that we have someone voting for a time/date for our contest. I think tomorrow would be a good day to have a baby, it’s our little neighbor Charlie’s third birthday tomorrow, wouldn’t that be fun? :)

Okay, I better get to bed! Pray for me that I will not be too impatient, and pray also that this little boy will come soon! I’m really ready to not be pregnant anymore, I’m sure all you mom’s know the feeling and can sympathize with me. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Many blessings!  I will leave you with this picture of Eamon and I on our date on Friday night, we had a blast!  I had taken the kids to the Children’s Museum that day to make scarecrows and got to paint their faces as well, I painted him as a little puppy dog. The kids all wanted to wear their faces to bed that night :) Little cuties!

    Oh Sister, you are such a sweetie. I’m a little weepy right now because I was watching a little bit of Peter Pan, the new version. When he was a baby his carriage took off on it’s own and he was lost and he fell out of his carriage and lay on the sidewalk in the rain, lost and alone and crying. Oh, it sounded like my little boy when he cries. . . and it made me weepy. And then when he kissed Moira, he made the decision to grow up so he could be a daddy and it made me think about Sanford and how he is finally a daddy. So, then reading about you and how you want your little boy in your arms and thinking about how tiny he will be and how he will cry and be just a sweet little boy and how I won’t be there to see you give birth to him . . . makes me just a little more weepy. I love being a mom. It’s the most wonderful thing in the entire world. I love you, sis. Hang in there. Not much longer. Your body is getting ready. Call when you get the chance today.

    Oh…the last few days are SO hard. With my last little one, I had MANY rounds of false labor, even started to go into pre-term labor at 34 weeks. It was so exhausting and a disappointing every time I would think “this is it”, then it would stop just as quickly as it started. It was extra frustrating for me because my labor with my other baby had been WAY TOO EASY. I woke up in the middle of the night at 37 weeks, my water broke, we went to the midwife’s house and 5 hours later I had my son in my arms! I thought for sure I would have my daughter that early to. I ended up having her 39 weeks, and those last two weeks seemed like an eternity!

    Praying for you today that your sweet little baby will come in “His time” and that He will give you the strength to get through whatever you face today.

    Dear Jenni! I know it’s so hard wondering if “these” contractions are the ones that will start “the real thing!” It’s exciting – it’s going to be so soon! I can’t wait to hear or read the news. I’m checking your blog often to see what’s up. God bless you and take heart! Your little boy is almost here!
