Update On The Baby!!!!

Well we're 20 days and counting to the due date of Itty Bitty Bug-a-boo!!! Mama is hoping that baby comes early as the miserable moments of pregnancy have set in. Swollen feet & ankles, tiny bladder, humongous tummy and no sleep.....not the ingredients for the most happy woman in the world. I'm trying very hard not to complain, but I am definitely hoping for an early delivery. My doctor, however, thinks that this baby will be right on time. So far no dilation and no baby in sight at the moment. Plus, our doctor is going wild pig and boar hunting in Texas until the 29th of the month so he asked me to just lay low and wait for his return and then we could talk about having this baby. UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

So, the waiting game is on. We'll keep you all posted on baby and how we're doing with the waiting in the coming days. Thanks for your continued prayers for energy and rest during these miserable and long days!!!! I guess we shouldn't look at them as miserable because we have such an exciting outcome to look forward to........God give us the strength to endure!!!!!

Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

It's perfectly okay to say you're miserable because that about sums up the last little while for me this time too except I've got 6 weeks to go. Hang in there.

we are sorry your feeling so tired and sore. I was over due with izzy and know what it feels like to want the baby in my arms rather than in my tummy! We can't wait to see pics of the new and big bugs together!! how exciting for you both! we did not find out what sex izzy was before she arrived (to my slight protest) and it did make for a lovely surprise and a wonderful drive to get labor over wit even faster. I really wanted to know hold and see my baby! you will be inour prayers:) love wyndi steven and izzy:)
