Waiting, Waiting, Waiting...

Right now we are playing the waiting game. My due date is on Tuesday and we are so ready for this baby. Not to mention, I'm looking forward to not having a big hard belly again. I mean, I know it will take time to get back to "normal" (that is, whatever my new normal is) but when I'm doing dishes or cooking and I need to get something from the upper cabinets, I am constantly reminded of the fact that I'm 39+ weeks pregnant! As you can see in the pictures I've gotten quite large and baby is ALL in front now (and a little lower). I am praying and praying that if it is in accordance with God's will He will allow the baby to be born sometime in the next few days. But, for all I know, I may not have the baby until September 10th, or sometime around there! (Oh, what a dreadful thought that is!)

Thanks to the shirts my Mom gave me (they came at JUST the perfect time) I still have 3 shirts that I can alternate with, two of my new ones and a size XL maternity shirt that I had bought just before my shower. I don't know where expectant mothers of twins find shirts to wear when they get close to the end of their pregnancy! As it is, I never thought that I'd fit into a size XL, never mind an XL maternity shirt! Anyway, enough about me and my clothes!!!! :)

I've had a nice, relaxing weekend. Yesterday I got some cleaning done (I'm hoping the next time I need to do the vacuuming, will be after the baby is born!) and started on a new baby blanket for my Etsy shop.

Today I took a short nap after Church and then later this afternoon, we went out to dinner at a Thai restaurant. It was very good and close by so we were back home before 6. Now I'm writing a blog post and Scott is working on writing and the likes. :) Check out his blog post about his short stories here.

I don't have many plans this week. Actually, I don't have any plans this week other than my weekly prenatal appointment (which I'm hoping will be something different...). I don't know if that's a good thing because the baby will come, or if that's a bad thing because I'm going to end up finding myself rather bored. :)

It is so strange to think that Summer is practically over. I have many friends who have already gone back to college and I know that even the high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools are starting as well. I am very thankful though that we are at the end of summer because that means the baby will be here very soon as well as the fall weather! I love fall, the leaves changing and cooler weather! Of course, I have other reasons for wanting fall too. September marks the first month that I'll be a Mommy and we have company coming at the end of the month that we are greatly looking forward too!!! I'm also looking forward to after I have the baby and getting things a little more settled and organized as right now we have all we need for the birth and everything taking up a lot of space in this (while larger than our apartment was) small, house!

So, what are you looking forward to in Fall?

I'm looking forward to continuing my studies for the GED test which I will be taking in December. The GED (General Education Development) is basically a government-issued diploma that certifies that you've completed high school. Of course, I'll get a home school diploma from Mom and Dad too since I was home schooled right from the start. :-) I can't wait to graduate in December...and this fall I'm looking forward to getting ready for graduation. :-)

Of course, I'm also looking forward to seeing pictures of your new baby. :-)

Have a blessed night!

How exciting to be graduating this fall! And don't worry, I'll keep the blog as updated as possible (especially with pictures) once Little One decides to make it's appearance! :)

I am looking forward to the leaves changing colors and falling, the crisp cool "fall" weather, and many other things, but most especially a certain trip we're taking :) I can't wait to see you again! I'll be praying for you in these last few days before the baby is born~I am very excited to meet the baby!!!

love and hugs!

Jessica said...

I'm looking forward to fall, too! For one, I love the pumpkins and leaves, apple cider, getting to wear my fall jumper, and the best thing of all this year is...GETTING TO COME SEE YOU!!! :D Yay! I can't wait! Just think, less than a month from now I'll get to give you a real life hug!

I'll be praying that you won't have to wait too much longer to have the baby! It will be here before you know it :)

Love and HUGS!
