can't think of a title! :)

So, i bet you're wondering what's going on! LOL Welcome to my world! :)
My due date has come and gone and I am surprisingly in good spirits. I have been scheduled for inducement next thursday if I don't go on my own by then. My doctor has left town and will not be back until monday morning (super! :) BUT, my mom's here now and all is well! :)

Want a couple things to pray about?
- please pray that i will have the baby naturally and that I will go on my own.
- I would LOVE to have the baby today - especially before mother's day! that is a desire of my heart, but the Lord knows what's best.
- My mom got here wednesday and it would mean a lot to me (and to her) if the baby would come this week so that she can spend the most time with the baby before she has to go back home and also so i can heal completely before my church shower on the 23rd.

So, all of these things are in God's hands, but those are just a few ways I could use prayer!! :)

I had contractions last night and a few other signs that labor may be in my near future - so that was exciting, (no my water hasn't broken yet, but I feel as though i ought to take a rubber sheet with me wherever I go! :) The contractions we steady and regular, but they were every 15 minutes for less than a minute...so i have a long way to go - but it was nice that they were regular anyway and not a hoax.

So, maybe tomorrow little Oliviah or Jackson will be here - PRAY PRAY PRAY! :)

We'll be praying for you these next couple of days. That's so wonderful that your mom can be there with you. Mom's just make everything better! :) Do lots of fun stuff with her while you're waiting in the meantime. :)

I predict that the little one will come tonight or tomorrow! My friend Damaris had contractions just like yours most of Wednesday, and then she went into labor around midnight and delivered at 7:15 Thursday morning! It'll be here and done with before ya know it! I'm praying for you especially hard today. Hi to Momma Mo!

Katie said...

I'm praying that you'll have the baby tonight! Your plea to have it soon so your mom can spend the most time with him/her struck a chord with me. My mom flew in on a Tuesday (my due date being Thurs), and I was in the same situation. Thankfully, they induced me on Friday, so my mom had a little over a week to spend with Luke and nurse me back to health. Poor thing. She went home a tired mama, and definitely earned her grandma stripes!

So, I'm praying for you today. You're going to do great! Is your mom going to be in the delivery room?

Praying for you so hard right now! I know the desire of your heart is to have that little one before Mother's Day - what a great gift that would be! God knows, and His way is so perfect! I'm getting good vibes though, so hang tight and know that you have many many friends and family praying for you!!
Love ya!
