40 weeks!

Ok baby girl....come out and play!!!  I'm 40 weeks today and ready to have a baby!  I've been having false labor off and on for about 3 weeks.  She has been a bit of a tease.  I'm hoping that the full moon will help trigger something.  I've tried all sorts of natural ways to start labor.  I've been doing lots of walking.  On Saturday I walked so much that I didn't even get up for church the next morning.  Those that know me know that missing church is pretty rare.  I've been taking Evening Primrose Oil.  TMI...I know...and I'm sorry but, we've tried intimacy.  I'm about ready to break out the raspberry tea.  A friend recommended Indian food.  Please leave me a comment if you know of anything else!!!

Not my timing, but His!

I feel like I have to control every aspect of my life all the time.  Being a housewife, I control how my home is run, what we eat, who my kids hang out with, our calendar, etc.  I think you get the picture.  At this point I am 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant with my daughter.  I am tired and moody.  I am over being pregnant and want her to be out here where we can all enjoy her.  I have been having all sorts of signs that labor is coming soon.  But in my opinion...not soon enough!  It seems that everyone I know is due to have babies about the same time as me...and they are having them!  My sis-in-law is in L&D right now awaiting the arrival of her precious daughter.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm totally excited for all of these women, but I'm jealous.  I'm ready to meet my little one!  I have to keep reminding myself that she will come in the Lord's timing and not mine.  I need to sit back and enjoy these last few days when I can feel her move inside of me.  I need to enjoy my last few nights of silence!  I need to enjoy my time with my boys and my wonderful husband.  I am such a blessed woman and just need to slow down a little bit. 

Isaiah 40:31 - But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Lord, please help me hide that scripture in my heart.
