36 Weeks   1 comment

I am now 36 weeks pregnant with David Nathaniel…

I am so looking forward to these last few weeks of the pregnancy and to officially meeting this little boy. I am feeling pretty good. I have some aches and pains that come along with carrying around a nearly full-term baby, my sleep isn’t as restful as it once was, and I make a lot of moan/groan sounds when I get up from being in a sitting position for too long.  BUT, the good outweighs the bad. It’s so neat to feel him roll and shift around. Sometimes I just sit and watch as my stomach twitches with his movement. TOO COOL. I will definitely miss that when he is born.

Nate and I have pretty much finished getting his room ready. There are still a few little things to do— like move the changing table into his room and raising the mattress to the higher level— but it’s almost finished.

It’s pretty simple, not Pinterest-worthy, but it’s nice to have a place just for David in our house. Our home feels “more homey” just with the thought of the new addition; can’t wait to see how it feels when he’s actually here. 

While I am super excited about David’s upcoming arrival, I am a bit nervous about a few things. If you are a believer, would you mind praying that:

(1) I don’t go into labor in the middle of the night (I’d hate to have to wake my mom to come and watch Millie at 2 am). My wish is that I’d go into labor around 6 am so Nate and I can take Millie to daycare like it’s a normal day and her schedule wouldn’t be impacted much. 

(2) Labor/delivery go smoothly

(3) David would be healthy

(4) We transition from a family of 3 to a family of 4 with ease

We will keep you informed of events as they happen. BIG THINGS ARE ON THE HORIZON!!!!
