6 weeks to go! That feels a bit surreal. I’m excited to meet this little one. With the upcoming move and holidays, I don’t have a lot of time to sit around and think about it, but when I do, I am very anxious to find out what this baby’s birth story will be.
Oh, and guess what?! I actually managed to get you a photo this week!
Now, I’m afraid looks are deceiving. From this angle, I don’t look all that huge. In fact, this is more how I “think” I look. But, let’s take a different angle…
That’s a little more accurate; although, I think in person, my baby belly is much more “dramatic.” 😉
I had my Gestational Diabetes counseling last week. I prick my finger 4x a day and every week send in the results. My A1C came back perfectly normal (meaning my sugars have not been out of balance in the past several months), and so far, my daily numbers have been within range as well. Now to make it through the holidays!
Toward the end of pregnancy, I like to read pregnancy-related books. The one I’m reading right now is by my friend, Misty Marr…
I have to be very careful what I read when I am this late in pregnancy. In fact, Facebook has been a place I have had to really be wary of because there are so many stories, and not all of them are encouraging. I don’t handle death of children very well, and at this stage of pregnancy, fears easily boil to the surface. So, I guard my heart, and ask the Lord to help me to continue to minister to grieving mothers without being consumed.
On a final note, the movers come next week to start the process of relocating our family. This week is full of preliminary projects. Next week will be full of nitty-gritty details and work. I’m sure I’ll be super busy and probably super tired, but I am looking forward to the entire process bringing us to a settled place before baby arrives.
Have a blessed week!
