I have never been so excited, so anxious, and so ready to meet someone in all my life! I cannot wait to see our little son and hold him in my arms. This has been a healthy and, at times, not-so-healthy pregnancy. I have kept this baby in the longest, and maybe that is why my patience is wearing thin. I am definitely the biggest and have gained the most weight with this pregnancy, and, with two other little ones hanging on me, it's been the most uncomfortable one by far. With that being said, I have enjoyed this one the most. The more I have, the more I realize what a miracle it is to have a healthy baby.

In a moment of weakness the other night, and I had a very real impression that what I am doing by bringing another child into this world is what Heavenly Father wants for us. I felt a sense of peace come over me and felt such gratitude for the miracle of being able to carry a child. I am truly thankful for every little kick, jab, and movement, and I will always be grateful for those moments when it's just the two of us awake in the middle of the night. There is nothing like feeling life inside of you. It's truly a sacred thing to be carrying one of our Father's precious children.

Here I am at 38 weeks.
I am scheduled to have another c-section on Thursday, May 12th. Garret doesn't think I will go that long, but it's exciting to have a date to look forward to. There is finally a light at the end of the 9 month tunnel!

Nat, I am soooo excited for you too. It really seems like more of a miracle each time doesn't it? It sounds like you have enjoyed it and will continue to even when he's born:) I can't wait to see you and to meet the little you so much!!
