37 weeks 5 days

Well, this week has been super long for me. When you are pregnant, you want to make it to full term, which was last week for us. As soon as I was full term, I wanted her OUT OUT OUT! Well, normally, a woman is pregnant for 40 weeks, and isn’t considered truly “over due” until 42 weeks… YIKES… for me that day is March 14th – which seems like an eternity away. I know my Dr won’t let me go that long, which is a relief. However, as soon as I hit the 37 week mark, each day has felt like week.

This morning, as I spent time with the Lord, I had to realize I’m coming to another point of surrender to Him. He knows exactly what time and what day Harper will arrive, and I’ve got to rest in that – otherwise I’m going to drive myself (and everyone else around me) CRAZY! I hope that tomorrow’s Dr’s visit will be encouraging to me, and I will have progressed a little more. If not, though, I’ve just got to rest in what the Lord’s timing is. I’m trying to live each day for what it brings instead of being on a countdown like I have been for the last few months.

For fun… here is a picture Nancy took of me while she was in town this past weekend. We had a lot of fun together!

Well, I think I am going to do another survey… I haven’t done one of those in a while, so I think I will update…
