A few weeks ago, Liberty asked to take a picture of me. Oh the perspective of a 5 year old. This week, a little girl in Liberty's class at Classical Conversations said, "Whoa! That looks big! AND it looks REALLY heavy!"
I really thought that I would have this baby before my due date. I guess he didn't get the memo that Multiparous women are supposed to deliver early.
I started to feel really discouraged. I have been walking around at 4-5CM and 70% effaced for the past 2 weeks. I really expected to see some progress this week, and was contemplating having my membranes swept. Until I learned that I have polyhydramnios. It is far to risky to do any intervention unless the baby's head is well engaged.
In my Bible reading I came across Paul talking about being thankful in all circumstances. Sometimes it is so easy to lose sight on all of our blessings. I am not sleeping well and am uncomfortable~ but I am growing a baby! I have the privilege of sharing in God's miracle and He has chosen us to bestow another blessing on.
I am choosing to relish my last few hours, days or weeks of this pregnancy and remember that God has the perfect timing planned for this baby to make his arrival. My arms are aching to hold him. Until then, I will be content in all circumstances.
We had the privilege of having Renee at Little Earthing Photography do some maternity photos for us. Be sure to click over and see her amazing work!
