Welp, today was our due date and unless something crazy happens in the next 3.5 hours it looks like I am going to be right and this little boy is going to be late.
I’ve been psyching myself up to go past my due date this whole pregnancy, so I am really not too disappointed.
Honestly, I physically feel wonderful & not at all like, “he must get out!”
1. I am really really really ready to meet this little baby!!
2. I really really really want to avoid being induced.
(I am not judging if you were induced and had a great experience. I am happy for you! But personally, that is one of my worst fears…)
This is the verse that is taped on post-its all over our house right now…
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You. Isaiah 26:3
Some moments I am at perfect peace waiting on the Lord to bring our son into the world.
And some moments I am so anxious being so out of control and anticipating all the ways this delivery could NOT go the way I desire.
I have had to do a lot of confessing & repenting my sin of not trusting Him. Children are sure incredible tools to sanctify us!
Pray that my mind would be STAYED on the Lord so that I would be KEPT in perfect peace.
Pray that we will cherish the rest of our time as a family of only 3 as we anticipate Owen’s arrival.
Pray for labor to kick in soon. Pray for stamina as we wait and as I labor. Pray for a healthy, uncomplicated delivery of our sweet Owen Paul.
Pray that breastfeeding will go well from the get-go.
Hopefully my next post will be a picture of our little boy in person!
