Baby Bump - 40 Weeks

Here is the 40 week bump. I probably should have taken the picture in a fitted tee or tank to really see the largeness of the belly but didn't have time to change for the picture before bible study. Will this be my last weekly picture?? Who knows. Maybe there will be a 41 week picture. Let's hope there is not a 42.

What can I say at this point?

I am 40 weeks 1 day pregnant. I am not feeling terribly impatient, but I am of course eager for her to come. At my appointment on Monday I was at 2cm. My next appointment is this coming Monday and I will get an ultrasound.

I am feeling pretty good overall, but I think I have a little cold, which kind of scares me. I hope it does not get worse to where I am super sick when I go into labor. I am just praying to feel better and that I would be able to trust in God's perfect plan for Cambry's arrival.

Cambry is still a major wiggle worm. Sometimes at night she just goes crazy and it makes it a little difficult to fall asleep.

I haven't had any crazy spurts of energy like I read about people having at the end. If anything, I feel like I am slowing down. She is pretty heavy these days.

It is so strange that our lives are about to change in ways we can't imagine. It doesn't seem real that we will have a baby of our own to take home very soon. So excited! It is fun to meditate on these verses at this time and think how they apply to Cambry.

Psalm 139
3 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Every time I see that there is a new post on your blog I think it is the "Introducing Cambry" post! I know you are anxious to meet her, but she will be here soon enough. You have a great attitude...I was much more impatient when Ezra was overdue. Of course, it was the end of July so maybe that had something to do with it. I pray that you have an easy birth. You are about to experience the best day of your life!
