It's coming to an end

It's 1 AM here in Germany and tomorrow I have my apt to schedule my c-section!! I'm so excited. We're hoping we only have one more week until we meet our newest blessing!!!! This will be my 6th c-section, it's all I know. I've been in labor twice...with our first and with our 5th. Let me tell you, c-sections are much better when you do NOT have to labor! LOL Thankfully over the years my pain tolerance has sky-rocketed, so Noah's labor wasn't nearly as horrible, and was eventually stopped, and my c-section although earlier than planned proceded later in the evening.

This pregnancy has been so easy, physically for me. I feel very blessed and the baby has been breach up until a couple days ago when I believe the baby flipped head down (this really isn't important when you're having a c-section, plus when the baby is breach you have very little lower back pain, which is soooo nice).

I'm so looking forward to finding out if our family will be welcoming another daughter or a son! This is the 2nd time we've not found out and it's so exciting!! I can not wait to find out and meet this new little person who'll be joining our family. We have 2 girl names picked out, but can not come to an agreement on a boys name, so hopefully if it's a boy we can agree to one quickly. We'll tell our kids first (they'll be staying with a sweet friend) and then Chad will make phone calls to family and friends and shared via Facebook. I'll have my laptop and camera at the hospital with me, so either that evening or the next day I can get online and share pictures.

I was just thinking of you today, Christy, wondering if you had the baby yet; how exciting that the "end" is in sight and soon you and Chad will be holding this precious new gift from the Lord!

Will keep you in my prayers over the next few weeks and look forward to hearing about this new addition to your family.

(I'm not really blogging these days but do check in on my Dashboard daily so I'll make it a point to do so over the next few weeks :)

I have been thinking about you, wondering if you were still stationed in germany. You have all been there for quite a while now. It is so awesome your having another baby. God has really blessed you and your husband. The kids are so adorable. I am anxious to know if this baby is a boy or girl also. I have been away from blogging for quite a while, but I am trying to get back into it. May God continue to bless you always.
