I finally took time to take more photos of the nursery. I have it pretty much how I want it! I've added a few things this past week or two and now it's complete. I'm sure along the way it will get rearranged some, due to how we need, but I'm very pleased!

So, without further ado...

View from door.
Love how his little reading/ play area turned out!

Closet. Plum full of diapers! And clothes and toys!

This deer cut out has been sitting on the porch for a couple of year!
We made a little stand for it! It is perfect for his room!

We got a glider, too! I definitely think that that was a great decision!

Had to kinda hide the basket of blankets! It is overflowing!

Even though we are still waiting on a quilt from mom, his little crib is perfect!
The little felt animals my sister made are so cute! Plus I love how the board turned out!

I kept this extra rocking chair in here in case dad wants to sit in here with us!
He'll probably want to steal the glider though!

And there you have it! Asa's room all ready for him!

Week 40.

This is the week that I have been waiting for for 9 months. It is kinda weird to see that it is May 18th on the calendar. I've probably said that date 1000 times in the past 9 months. And it came and went. Even though I am so ready to meet my little boy, I know that it was God's timing that got him in here and it will be God's timing getting him out! His timing is perfect isn't it! That always seems apparent after the fact. It is sometimes hard to have faith during when you don't know really what to expect or when to expect it, but after the fact I always look back and say, "God, you sure know what you're doing!" I know God has the perfect birthday in mind for Asa!

We are at 40 weeks as of yesterday and just still waiting on him. My doctor and I agree that we will let him cook as long as he needs.... up to 42 weeks. I sure hope that he doesn't need to cook that much longer, but we both don't want to induce until it's necessary. I'm very pleased with my doctor and that what she is not pushing me to induce!

Here's to 9 months prego!!

Have a good Monday!

Week 39.

It is kinda unreal to me that I only have a few days left in this pregnancy. This was something that I wanted to badly... to be pregnant... and here we are about to have this kid. I was telling Bobby last night how crazy it is all the parts of this process we've  gone through. Trying to get pregnant, being so excited cause we were finally pregnant, telling family and friends, finding out that we are having a sweet lil boy, showers and getting everything ready... and now waiting. I've never thought of it this way before, but it's been an amazing journey with all different kinds of emotions you go through. Looking back it has mostly flown by. Now that we are counting the days till he comes, it seems like time has stopped. I'm not miserable or necessarily tired of being pregnant, but I am SO ready to meet him! {And to stop wondering when and how it will happen!} But I am so anxious!

This little booger is getting big. It is still amazing to me to feel him move. He mainly just has his foot sticking out my side, but he hiccups a lot, too! Ready to hold those little feet in my hands!

As far as progress goes, I am the same as last week. Doc says that 1st time pregnancies usually go to due date or a little over. So we're still counting... 3 days from today he is due!! EEK!!

I thought this little cold front and full moon might set something in motion, but I'm still pregnant!

Week 38.

I'm sure with my tardiness, some may be wondering if there is any news. Well.... there is no news! I'm still pregnant. At times I feel like this is never going to end, that I'm never going to get to see this sweet boys face. On the other hand, I'm not sure I'm ready to take care of a little one. I know once he is here it will all be wonderful and I won't remember the wait!

The update from the last Dr. appointment was good! I am still right on track and progressing. I am dilated to a 3 now! That has made things really real for me, but my cervix is still pretty thick, so it could still be a week or so. I go back on Monday!

I have had people ask when I think it will be. I've thought about it and really have no idea. {I mean how can you really predict that?} But I have had no major signs like "nesting" mode or anything. I thought that he might be coming yesterday. I have had more Braxton Hick contractions and I always wonder if this is the real deal... yet it hasn't ever been.

So here it is! The latest bump pic. It is a tad late, but I've documented this far, I don't want to stop!

I have gotten really lame with my chalkboards, but I think that chard and leaks don't really accurately describe this little man in me. So, it's just a count down. That's all I feel anyways... just counting the days until I get to meet him!

Have a great weekend!
