Today I am officially 39 weeks! YAY! It really is excitement overload around here. My husband describes it as “constant Christmastime.” We are so ready to meet our baby girl. However, we are also trying to exercise extreme patience. Although I’m a week away from my due date, we are both well aware that it could still be weeks before we meet sweet Georgia. I’ve been between 1-2 cm dilated for 2 weeks now and am praying that at my appointment today I have made progress. But again, just trying to be patient. This weekend was kind of like a teaser for us too. I had a few contractions Friday night and then even more on Saturday night (eeeeeek). However, they were short-lived and I haven’t had any since. BOO
But I guess that’s where patience comes in, yet again. And trust. I am truly trying to trust God because I know that his timing is perfect. The babe in my belly is a true miracle for so many reasons and I know it was because of Him that I am so close to meeting her. So here I am. Doing everything I can to trust. Trust that my God is good. Trust that He is in control. And Trust that He knows what is best for my babe and me. Because all of that is truth. And that is what I choose to fix my eyes upon these last few weeks.
Oh and y'all remember those crepes I mentioned last Friday? Well they didn’t disappoint…. Below is my choice – the Versailles. Nutella, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, chocolate… oh and vanilla ice cream. AMAZE.
