I have fully morphed into Mama Bear mode.
I'm eating more than usual...
and I'm LOVING it!
I'm so thankful that I stopped working when I did. I was in so much pain from being on my feet for 8 hours a day (and not just on my feet, but bending low to care for preschoolers and all of their needs!) that I made it as far as I could. But now that I'm at home, I've felt progressively better every day. What a relief!
Everyone says to just "walk that baby out," but I was in so much pain that walking hurt with every step. Today was the first day that I woke up and thought, "I could walk a mile today! Let's go!"
God is good :-)
Today, I'm 39 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I really wasn't sure how I would feel about reaching my due date with no baby in sight. I thought I would have a hard time with it. Jesse and I were both the first kids in our families, and we both came early. I guess I was hoping the same for Kayleigh. But surprisingly, I'm totally at peace. She's happy in my little luxury resort, I guess. And I'm ok with that. I want her to grow and come when she's ready. Our doctors have told us that they won't let us go over 41 weeks, so that means that there is a max of 8 days before we get to meet Kayleigh. I'm really hoping not to be induced, so I'm praying that she decides to make her entrance soon.
Her room is all set, our bags are by the door,
we're ready for our little girl.
Come, Kayleigh, come!
