Since my ankles are swelling into small tree trunks, and my doctor told me to eat more protein and put my feet up, I have downed a hard boiled egg, and am now resting on my couch, with feet elevated, looking forward to playing with my Cycles of Grace Notebooks and some blog posts. I am able to sit back and enjoy this break because I have most of my personal Morning Routine done (showered, dressed, kitchen cleaned...), the girls and I said our prayers, and we played a board game together--that was definitely their Math lesson for the week.
I have 9 more days until my due date. When I was this pregnant with Maggie--well, I wasn't pregnant any more! I'd had her early in the morning, 10 days before she was due. Susannah, however, came four days late. I had a prenatal yesterday, and I wasn't dilated at all--so, really, I know nothing! I am still apprehensive of the pain of labor, but I am ready to meet my baby and get over being pregnant already!
I'm glad that labor is something I have no control over. Since I can't do anything about it, I am less tempted to worry about it. It will come when it comes, and I will get through it by the grace of God.
