As of tomorrow, February 24th, I will officially be full term. Full term is considered 37 to 42 weeks, so there is a big time frame. But, since we have the inducement scheduled we only have 15 days until we start the process. I’m excited that we can have our baby at any time, even though I’ve never had a baby very early. I am anxious to hold my sweet baby and I can’t wait for this painful pregnancy to be over, but I also know what is coming. The closer we get to delivery the more nervous I feel. My mind is telling me that I should enjoy these last few days, yet I am craving sleep without pain.
I am also feeling overwhelmed with the knowledge that I will soon be responsible for six children. As my kids have gotten older the more I am realizing the importance of mine and Rod’s job. The weight of this God-given assignment seems more than a flawed person can handle. I am so thankful that we do not walk through this alone. And I pray that we don’t screw up too terribly ;).
Anyways, back to the baby-she seems to be doing well. She is getting big and running out of room. I feel like I am definitely at the end of the pregnancy. We have decided to change the name we picked out for this little one. Instead of naming her Sarah Joy, we will be naming her Kristen Sarah.
Anyone care to play the “guess the baby stats” game? If so please leave a comment with:
Date of Birth:
*I am scheduled to go in on March 10th at 8:00pm to be induced and the doctor thinks I’ll have her sometime on the 11th. I will be 39 weeks on the 10th.
