36 Weeks, I can't believe it!!!

Today I am 36 weeks pregnant. There were so many times when it just didn't seem possible that we'd get here, but with God ALL things are possible. I'm so thankful!!!

The past two months have been VERY long, for everyone. But they were absolutely worth it to get us to this point. Bed Rest is hard on the whole family and not fun but it was a small price to pay to help Ally get the best start possible.

I'm going to miss feeling her move and kick, I've really cherished all the things I've gotten to experience this time around and it's a little sad to know that part will be over. BUT I cannot wait to meet my little girl!!

We have been scheduled for our c-section for Wednesday the 25th, the finish line is in sight!! We'll be 36 weeks 5 days, which is just amazing! Thank you for your continued prayers, I will not be able to relax until this sweet baby girl is safely in my arms!!

I can't wait to get all these crazy drugs out of my system, hopefully I won't be so swollen then ;-).

Now for some pictures from cousin Ben's third birthday party. I was so sad to miss out but I was glad that the boys got to go and had so much fun.

Praying in Seattle!
Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

There just aren't words to express the comfort knowing that the Holy Ghost Himself is praying for you!
Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Congratulations for making it to 36 weeks! Many prayers for you this week as you welcome sweet Ally. You will find it amazing to be with your sweet baby right after delivery instead of in the NICU. There is nothing like it! Wishing you a safe delivery and a healthy baby girl!

Little over a day now! This is so very exciting!
Know that I'm praying so at this end!
Revelation 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Now that Ally's here safe and sound I can focus on praying about your recovery! Know the pain! Praying hard about the pain!
Psalms 71:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
