Happy and Content

I want to write a post and share some thoughts today.......

For most of my pregnancy I had thought I would be in having baby with an induction on
Thursday June 7. With a history of 3 babies over 10#'s I was just planning on having baby 1 weeks early.
Plus my oldest son was to graduate high school on June 13......but he has to take a summer class so he will not walk in the ceremony. I was disappointed but its not the end of the world. It has taken the pressure off being on a time schedule, to give birth, heal and make it to the ceremony....with lots of walking.

Pregnancy at 38 weeks

I'm am now very happy and content to have baby tucked safely inside for the next week.
Wednesday June 13 at the least unless baby comes early on his/her own.
Baby passed the stress test last week and is not overly big. Baby is moving around great.
With a whooping cough epidemic here in our area and state, I don't want to take my new baby out and about more than I have to.  So having baby safely inside makes me happy. I'm just really savoring my last week being the family that we are RIGHT now!

My schedule for the next week is very busy.

I have 2 more baseball games to go to. (the weather has been cold, overcast and rainy)
2 end of season trophy parties.
End of home school co-op and party.
A flute concert to attend.
Noah turns 10 on June 11!
June 15 we have end of year Catholic Little Flowers/Blue Knights during the morning and family awards dinner that night.
My kiddos have school until Monday June 18th.
My older 2 boys have finals and such and can't miss any school.

My husbands parents arrive June 7th and my folks will get here June 9th. Neither are staying at our house.
But I only have 2 more days to get the house ready. My nesting thing had flown away for this pregnancy.lol I keep praying to GOD to give me the motivation and energy to get the house picked up and clean. My microwave is really bad!

My mom will most likely stay at our house a few days before and after baby arrives to help get the kiddos off to school and cook meals. So we have to get the moterhome aka spare room cleaned up and aired out as well.

I can tell this baby is a real cutie!

Does baby look like a boy or a girl to you?

Our family has put together a pool to guess!
I will post about it soon!

In the mean time, do you have a guess?



  1. Great to hear that things are going so well!! What a blessing!! So exciting!! I just hope that you can accomplish all that you need and want to do before labor and delivery. My nesting never lasted long enough either. Ha Ha!

    I'm going to guess BOY!! But you'll be happy either way, I'm sure. :-)

    Prayers for health and endurance for you!! Almost there now. :-)

  2. I'm guessing boy too Georgiann - just going on the pic of your tummy, only because my boys always sat 'out front' and my girls were 'back seat passengers'. Enjoy your last week of nesting - don't know about resting with that schedule but do look after yourself and I look forward to hearing the news very soon.


I read all my comments and love to know people are out there....I enjoy making new blog friends!
Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
