PREGNANCY UPDATE ... AGAIN

Wow, I did not realize it has been that many days since my last post... sorry. With Daniel's straight night schedule I don't get computer time until 9pm and if I want to watch a movie well it gets to late to do both.

So my update.... 38wks.... not much longer.... hopefully!

I am feeling great. I know back at 26wks my legs and ankles were swelling but quit not long after that and was back to normal. I still feel great, well tired, but great! Nesting? I don't ever get the urge to totally clean my house right before birth. I slowly through the last month finally do stuff that needed and should of been done already. I cleaned out and organized my laundry room. What me to admit to something that I bet no one else can admit to? I DO NOT OWN AN IRONING BOARD? Is that crazy? But I do not have one and only iron when I am quilting or sewing. Anyway, I reorganized and cleaned out a closet, and my sewing section. I am going to steal Audrey's idea and hang up my quilting rack... why I never thought of that before! But thanks, Audrey, for the idea!!! I have the urge to want to go out by myself and just shop, or window shop! During the day, I am all ready for labor and birth.... I can do it! Give me the quiet of night time and I am in panic transition mode (do not touch me, I don't want to go anywhere, I don't want to move, I want it over with!). Oh the mind... never stops at night. Then I wake up the next morning thankful that I did actually sleep through the night! I guess I have so many uncertainties that I have given over to the Lord and know everything will work out! The kids will be taken care of during labor, they will have a way to the hospital, I will survive the 30 minute drive to the hospital, transition will not last the whole labor and is the closest point to the end result... holding our precious new child!!!!! I have done this before and survived ... I can with God's help do it again!

Do I feel like I will go early? Oh I could only wish! I really like 12-7-07 but we shall see what the Lord has planned. I appreciate your prayers and concerns. I will do my best to inform everyone when labor starts. I will not have access while at the hospital but I was thinking of giving Sarah my info so she could post an update for me while I am at the hospital. I wish we had internet access there, that would be so cool to update during the labor and all but we do not have a lap top computer.

You sound like me when I was pregnant with Jonathan. I was dreading it!!! I had to make myself not to think about it! I was so scared that I was going to have back labor again. I new then that Jonathan was going to be my last child. I was done with pregnancy! My body was telling me this! 2 girls and 2 boys was my even perfect number. =]

I have no idea! I'm never right about these things anymore... I'll just wait patiently to hear what God decides! ;) Take care of yourself... I'm praying!
