Well, here we are heading into day 10 past the baby’s due date. I was pretty sure the baby would come after his/her due date but I didn’t think I’d go this late again. Thankfully, I was able to handle it much better today than I have for the last few days. The Lord brought the following verse to mind this morning and it has been such an encouragement to me today. Psalm 37:3 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.” (emphasis mine) I’m so thankful for the Lord’s faithfulness to us, His children. I’m so thankful that He has a perfect plan that can not be thwarted my man. Our precious baby will arrive in His perfect time and all this waiting will make it all the more exciting and special!
We went to see the midwife again today. She wanted to make sure my blood pressure was within a normal range. It was still a little high but not has high as it had been. The baby is doing well and has moved down even further into my pelvis! I’ve also made a little more progress as far as dilation and softening goes! We’ll set up another appointment for Monday if baby hasn’t come by Sunday. Please pray that this baby comes before 42 weeks (next Wednesday) so that we won’t have to deliver in the hospital.
The Lord willing I’ll have an update by morning saying I’m in labor! 🙂 Opening day of deer season is in the morning. Do think Scott will be out hunting or helping catch a baby?! 🙂
