I'm not sure but this may be the first official pregnancy picture with baby 7!
So who wants the baby Scoop?
I am beginning to nest. I have passed the 34 week mark and am feeling
countdown-ish. So I am. Counting down, that is, until the day (or night) arrives
when we make this little one's acquaintance.
I can hardly wait!!!
This pregnancy has been "boringly normal" which is the best thing a woman can
hear from her doctor or midwife.
I have settled on a couple of dear midwives near to us who have been working together
for 25 years or so. I am currently hoping to deliver baby at home on Marvel Hill
(I have hot water again since last week - Yippee!!)
but they also have a comfortable little birth center we can drive to if we so choose at the
last moment. I am very thankful for God's provision in these women, and look forward to
seeing tiny 7's story unfold at the end of this chapter.
One thing especially different about this pregnancy is that I have been feeling all baby's
limb movement at the front of my belly. It's been fun to feel more feet and elbows, but I
can't make out exactly what's what. My midwife thinks head is down which is all I was really
wanting to be reassured of!
Other than that, I am frantic trying to finish Bryce's baby scrapbook and Christmas stocking
as well as a few things I have personally put my hand to creating just for this new little person I love.
Between school and chores and life, 6 more weeks doesn't seem like very much time to wrap up
Oh yeah. Then there's the name conundrum. I'm open to any and all suggestions for either gender.
Preferably your favorites, but then, AJ has already contributed Khubilai Khan. And Hans Solo (he is helpful like that).
So really, anything is fair game at this point! HA!
More than anything I would be blessed to have your prayers for my time of labor and delivery.
I would be so grateful to go into it with peace and grace - no fear or anxiety.
I know I can count on you my precious friends!
