Last Pregnant Post

I'm still pregnant. Not exactly surprising, but I was hoping maybe something would happen over the weekend :)

I really need to be working on stuff right now, but thought I'd pause a moment here, because I don't know for sure when I'll be back. I have several boxes to unpack, as we did some more moving yesterday, along with doing laundry, working on my freezer cooking, and getting the house cleaned up. Tomorrow I have to do school stuff for the girls as well.

So, the big day is Tuesday around 10:30. (central time) I have to be at the hospital at 5:30am!! Which means that I have to leave the house by 4:30am, thereby I have to GET UP by 4 at the latest. Wow. Guess I better have everything done so I can get to bed early. My poor parents have to come to my house then too to stay with my other children and then bring them later. I hope that the girls understand that mom is ok even though I'm hooked up to various things.

Yesterday I was treated to a very nice pedicure and watched the movie Julie and Julia at the theater. I loved the movie- very well done, although it is PG-13. I am definitely going to get Julia Child's cookbook now.

If the hospital has wireless internet, my husband will be able to post pictures for me. If not it may be a few days- I should be home Thursday at some point. It's hard to believe I've come to the end. The last several weeks have been difficult, but when I look back to when I first found out I was pregnant, it seems to have flown by now. I don't feel ready mentally- I've been so preoccupied with everything else, that it's hard for me to settle down and think of life with a newborn and 4 children. I'm nervous about the changes my body will go through and pray it looks ok afterwards.

But overall, no matter the obstacles, it will all be worth it when I get to hold my prize. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers and kind words of encouragement. You'll all get to see her soon!

There's still hope of a surprise quick labor between now and then, if it's His will. Else, I'm sure you'll do fine in the C-sec. :-)

We look forward to those pictures. Four kids is fun - really, it is! :-)

Jessica, I've been following your blog for a very long time (mainly through Bloglines), but have never commented. I have really loved reading about your life and have learned so much through your experiences (the good and bad!). I had my third section (and third beautiful boy) about a year ago, three weeks after a HUGE move to a new house. I had wanted to do a Vbac, too, and had prayed for a "surprise" early labor :) But it wasn't to be, and surgery went without any problems. The dr said no more babies...I would be willing to risk it, but my husband made the "head of household, I'm accountable to G** for this" decision and had his own surgery. I am so excited for you and your family. I know you will be a WONDERFUL fourth time Mom. Can't wait to see those first pics! Leah in Mississippi

Ok, I just checked my stats and saw you were at my blog.....which means you are probably sitting in a hospital bed, recovering and being very bored (I know I was always really bored at the hospital).

I pray everything went smoothly and I can't WAIT to see pictures!!

God's blessings on this new wee one~
