Only one more week until my due date! I'm so excited and ready to have this baby! Pregnancy is no joke with aches, pains, and challenges at every turn, but I know once I hold my little boy in my arms it will all have been worth it! It's no easy process though, growing a baby. Especially in the last few weeks. Every move seems to be a challenge, plus every new "pain" makes you think your in labor! Ha.
I'm really hoping for an early arrival rather than going past my due date, but only God knows at this point. I'm hanging in there trying to walk every day and stay as "active" as I can. I go to the doctor tomorrow so we will see what she says. I'm so thankful that so far everything has been normal with no complications and that I've been able to carry my little boy this long, because I know the longer he's in there the better for him! Here are some verses that have encouraged me lately:
"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you."
"But you, take courage!
Do not let your hands be weak,
for your work shall be rewarded."
-2 Chronicles 15:7
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness."
I can't wait to see what the next few weeks bring!
