Six days? Hmmm…

June 25th, 2010

She’s still fairly active.

She’s head down more often than not.  Not sure I trust her, though, because as lately as Monday night, she was attempting gymnastics in the high transverse position.  (Ouch!)

She’s obviously taking up more space this week than she did two weeks ago.  I’m still guessing between 8 and 9 pounds if she waits until D-Day.  Maybe closer to 8 pounds than 9?

I lost half a pound between last week and this week.

I’ve been feeling amazingly comfortable, except when I lie on my back on my midwife’s exam table (OUCH!!!) or stay in one position too long.

I’ve been enjoying a burst of energy the past few days.  One such as I have not seen for so long, I can’t even remember when it was!

We have an appointment for the second non-stress test today at 11 AM, and an OB appointment on Monday afternoon at 3 PM.

And I’ll update after those, if the Lord wills.

And that’s all the pregnancy news for now…except…

…I’m pretty sure I lost the mucus plug late last night…

…and…two Scriptures have been playing in my mind…

“My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

I have never before experienced this absolute freedom from anxious thoughts of any kind this close to the end of pregnancy.  This whole situation has been so immensely, impossibly outside our control!   All the many, many details about which we are ignorant, or helpless, or both!  Oh!  I am thankful to have an infallible, loving, all-powerful heavenly Father!  So laughter-bubbling-up-inside thankful!
