3 days until Christmas

Now officially 37 weeks. Hoping the little man waits until after Christmas so I dont end up in the hospital for the holiday. That would be a bit sad for me and my family.

Feeling pretty good, still having contractions, but not too many and not too entense.

Today me and my little ones are going to make some Christmas treats and just try and relax. I can hardly believe it is only 3 days until Christmas. Time has just been flying past. The last couple of months have been full of ups and downs and have really made me appreciate my husband and little ones more and more.

I am really hoping for a peaceful 2008. Praying for wisdom for us as a family has been my favorite thing to do as of late. So many things might be changing in the coming year. New baby, new vehicle (We hope), new house (We pray), possible job change for Justin. Who can tell but God what a new year will bring.

Right now I am thanking God for friends and praying that all of mine can trust in him and have a wonderfully blessed Christmas.

Blessings, Beth

Day By Day

Saturday I was officially 36 weeks.

I was having some medium strength contractions and getting stressed. Those of you who know what my last delivery was like may understand. I went in and got checked and I am only 2 cm and 50% effaced so it should still be awhile before Haven decides to join us.

The nurse at the hospital was pretty funny though, she gave me a huge list of reasons to come in for. Pretty much anything. :) Caleb was so good while they checked me at the hospital that it gave me hope he will be good for the actual delivery. The other two kiddoes on the other hand were kind of crazy.

Christmas is only 9 days away. I can hardly believe it. I am hoping that Haven will either be born soon or wait until after Christmas. I would so rather he didnt have to share his Birthday with such a big holiday. It will already be close no matter what.

Anyway I just wanted to update and will post again soonish I hope.

Here I am with 19 days until Christmas and 37 days until baby Haven is due to arrive.
I am definately nesting at the moment. I have the most annoying urge to organize and clean the most unusual things. :)
I am feeling tired and somewhat stressed even though I know I shouldn't be. I worry that with how quickly Caleb came this one will be even faster. Scary thought for me. Every contraction makes me think I am about to deliver, I really need to relax. Hehehe

So far the Christmas season has been nice and my kids are asking so many questions about Jesus and the season. It is so much fun to see how joyful they are about everything. I hope to get all my presents (Its not that many) wrapped tonight after the kids are in bed. I was going to do it last night but I had m Hubby get the baby clothes out of the attic for me to sort through instead.

Somehow I got all the boys clothes sorted and bagged by size. I also was able to squeeze all three boys clothes into the one dresser. Good thing they aren't girls, girls have way more clothes.
I did discover though that I have hardly any 0-3 month clothes left. Some jammies, and onesies and 2 outfits. I guess I might actually have to go pick up a few things at kid cents or something.

So here I am today, trying to stay relaxed, organize everything I can, have a nice holiday season, and mostly remember that God is in charge of everything and I really need to trust in that.

Oh one last thing Edge wireless, that place my Dear Hubby works has now been officially sold to A.T. & T. and we have no idea what they will be doing with current employees or when the actual transfer will take place. So please keep us in your prayers. Obviously with almost 4 children it can be a bit stressful not knowing what is happening with our job situation.
