at 39 weeks, i don’t think i could be more ready for this baby to come [although i’m sure i’ll be even more ready if he’s not here by next week… or the next.]
i’m huge, & that’s fine. all this weight i’ve gained, every stretch mark across my belly, all the trouble rolling over in bed – it’s all worth it just to see our son who God has blessed us with.
we are almost done with the nursery – just a few things to hang on the walls, 2 cushions to cover & a bedspread to find.
a lot of people have asked if i’ll be induced if i don’t go into labor by his due date [March 7]. the answer is no. 40 weeks is only a guess, an average. so even if i’m 42 weeks & feeling like a whale, i know he’ll come in God’s timing. he won’t stay in there forever! inducing labor too early can lead to possible interventions later on that may not be necessary. i really feel that natural birth is best for us & we are going to do everything possible to keep on that track.
hopefully in the next 2 weeks, we’ll be holding our son in our arms!
PS – today, March 1, was my due date, but I wasn’t born until the 12th. so that’s exciting 🙂
