9 months pregnant!Posted: June 18, 2008
Well we are finally here! Some days I feel like I have been pregnant forever and some days it feels like we just found out. I must say I have never been more impatient about anything in my life! Something about hitting that nine month mark has made me crazy! I am ready to have this baby!
The doctor put me on bed rest : ( He is pretty sure I have toxemia, which is apparently some kind of blood pressure problem. According to my “What to expect book…” it is found in only 5-10% of pregnancies, usually with older women or African American women…so I am not sure how I struck this jack pot! All the symptoms match up though so I think once again the doctors know what they are talking about : )
God’s timing is so good though. Mark and I have been wrestling with the whole ordeal of selling our house. We have come to a complete stand still on it. It is a good thing though. Having people look at the house right now would not be very convenient to say the least! We also had an Open House a couple of weeks ago which no one came to but pushed me to get the baby’s room finished! So now his room is mostly complete and the little things I want to do can be done sitting down!
I realized the whole issue with timing on selling our house is not as much a trust issue as a surrender issue. I know God is big enough to do it but will I surrender to His timing? That is really the issue! He has all this in control…including when I will have this baby…which is hopefully soon!
