Just a quick update....

Yesterday was my due date! I've contracted a lot the past few days but nothing consistent, and actually my contractions slowed down a bit this weekend. I have a dr appointment on Thursday for an ultrasound and stress test to make sure baby is doing okay, but let's hope I don't make it to the appointment!

It's probably good that she hasn't arrived yet because we got a LOT done this weekend. We finished Lucy's new big girl room, put the crib back together and moved all of Lucy's toys and clothes out of the nursery. It's so weird seeing the nursery without Lucy's things in it, it feels so empty! That's been her room for her whole life and it made me sad to see her move out of it. She slept in her new room for the first time on Saturday night and she of course did amazing. She was very resistant when we told her she was going to sleep in her new room, but once bedtime came she went right to sleep and never made a peep. I MIGHT have cried a little....I've been really sentimental lately and it made me so sad to see her in her new room. I'm blaming the hormones. Here are a few pictures of her new room, it's still very much a work in progress so don't judge the bare walls :)

The bed was a garage sale find, and the dollhouse bookshelf my grandfather made!

Please pray that this baby comes on her own in the next few days. As of right now, if I don't go into labor on my own I will have to have a repeat c-section early next week, Monday or Tuesday (you can't be induced if you've had a previous c-section), but if things don't look good at the ultrasound on Thursday then it will be sooner. Really hoping to avoid another c-section, but we know that ultimately the Lord is sovereign over it all and we just want our baby here safely, however that has to happen. We'll try to keep the blog updated!

just some encouragement....

my contractioned STOPPED for two days and then my water broke on its own; trickle at first and then like it happens in the movies. so, hang in there! except i wanted a repeat c-section, so i labored all night long waiting for the first "appointment" slot the following morning. fun, fun.
