Trying To Keep Up With Life

I'm sorry I haven't been updating my blog much lately. It has been such a busy week! All of a sudden, I hit that part of pregnancy where I can't sleep, and I'm moving through my days in slow motion trying to keep up with everything going on.

I have about three weeks and three days before we plan to induce labor. (Around August 15th). The reason we know when I will be induced is because we need to control the timing of my delivery. Every night I give myself a Lovenox shot which is a blood thinner. I need to discontinue those shots 24 hours in advance of labor, and then check into the hospital so they can monitor how the baby is doing without the Lovenox.

Three more weeks feels like forever, but then I look at my to-do list, and it suddenly doesn't seem like that long at all. : )

I can't believe we are so close! Thank you for your prayers and awesome support! I have a doctor visit on Thursday so I'll update you on how Monster Truck is doing.

By the way- did you miss this story about my Little Brother? There is a special announcement at the end.

I'll try to be a more faithful blogger. (writer and reader)

Wow... the final stretch. I will be praying for you and look forward to "meeting him" via the blog. I hope you enjoy these last weeks of pregnancy and that you can cherish and enjoy this time with him in your belly and this time with the girls as you prepare for and eagerly anticipate his arrival.

How exciting! I can't believe you only have three weeks left! I bet it's nice knowing the date though. I have 7 1/2 weeks left, but then as you know that could turn into 8 or 9 or 5.... that is the part that makes me crazy! I have so much to do too! I am taking Gracie today to get her school supplies. I want her to be all ready well before school starts! I still need to figure out where I am going to put all my baby stuff too! Love ya and can't wait to see Monster Truck!
