I Can't Keep Calm... I'm Due This Month!

I am exhausted. Hence why I've been MIA around these parts. You'll have to forgive me. I used to be a full-time blogger and could balance everything perfectly. Now all I can think about is propping my feet up and relaxing. I wanted to stop by Mrs. Southern Mama today in order to update everyone about what's been going on! This will be short and sweet.
* Last week at my doctor appointment, I was 2.5 cm dilated and 60% effaced. So baby girl will be coming in the very near future! I am praying (and hopefully you'll join me) for a safe and healthy labor/delivery. 

* Since it's officially June, I can say that I will truly have a June baby. I wasn't sure if she was considering coming sometime in May. Kensington's due date is June 9th but I am hoping, waiting, and wishing that she would come sometime this week. My guess is June 6th, but I am actually kinda praying that I don't make it that long. Heck, if I could go into labor right about now, that'd be great.

* My next doctor appointment is this Thursday. I am positive that I will have dilated even more by then and I'm also hoping my effacement continues to rise. I can totally feel some major changes going on. 

* I'm pulling out all of the stops to get Kensie out of my womb (although I have LOVED being preggo). I am walking a lot, eating pineapple, drinking caffeine for the first time in the last 10 months, bouncing on my bouncy ball, and lots of other tricks that are said to induce labor.

* The major differences I have been feeling lately are uncomfortableness, a bit more back pain, and much much much more pressure down south. I just know that she'll be in my arms soon and it makes my heart BURST with joy.

* Looking back over our IVF journey, I am so emotional. I couldn't be more grateful that God allowed us to be parents, even if it was down a fertility route. I would do it all over again, a million times. I am praying that I'll be blessed again in the future with another pregnancy - maybe a year down the road. But lesson learned: all in God's perfect timing. 

Unless I get more energy, this will likely be the last post before I have Kensie Grace in my arms. What a miracle. I pray the same for each woman out there that desires to become a mommy. It is a true blessing, straight from the creator himself. Thank you, God!

  9. YASSSSSS!!! It's almost baby time! Not long now, sweets! Soon you'll be holding on to your baby girl while blinking your tired eyes and staring in love. I'm glad that Kensie is still on track for her due date. Sofia actually came two weeks early. That was ok with me because she was a big lady and her nightly parties moving around in my tummy were getting uncomfortable! Is it the same with you too?
