Finally, I found some time to post my belly pics for the past few weeks. I apologize that I am wearing the same thing in all three pics, but I REALLY enjoy putting on that outfit when I get home from work! I am getting rather large, and with large comes uncomfortable! I am ready to have this baby! REALLY ready! Unfortunately I am still not dilated at all! We had a Dr's appt and ultrasound last Thursday and Graham weigh 6lbs 14oz, and is head down, but isn't really getting serious about starting labor. We go back to the Dr. for our 38 week appt tomorrow so pray for progress!! This past month has been really trying on me, and my patience. If you are scared of what pregnancy does to your body then dont read any further because I am going to give some details! Seriously, the last month of pregnancy is by far the hardest. My body is so completely different than it was 9 months ago! My chubby little face looks like it is about to pop almost as badly as my sausage fingers and HUGE cankles. My humongous boobs look microscopic in comparison to the massive belly which is tatooed with streaks from my skin being maxed out. I cannot stand up without feeling like Graham is about to come out, and as a result have to run to the bathroom to avoid peeing all over myself. I never thought I would be seen in the "butt" isle at CVS, shopping for Tucks but that day has come and gone (TMI I know). I am sick and tired of googling 38-39 weeks pregnant to try and figure out the signs of labor and how to naturally bring on labor. Yes I am ready to have my body back. Yes, I am whining and complaining, but I really don't care about all of these issues. I really just want to meet him, and I want him to be a perfectly healthy little baby boy. Pregnancy is a crazy thing. God is in complete control, not me, and it is teaching me a valuable life lesson. I am so excited for Eric and I to fall in love with this new little human. Everyone keeps asking me if I am scared, and I really am not scared but anxious for the big day. Please pray for us as we go through this awesome yet crazy time!! I will update everyone on our progress after tomorrow's appt! Here is an awesome bible verse that makes me cry every time! Have a fab week!
13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
