Ok, so it’s been an extremely long time since I posted anything on my blog. I know, I know – what a terrible writer that makes me! I’m hoping that I will be able to write a bit more, now that I’m on maternity leave.
Well, to catch you up – I am now pregnant with our second child. In fact, I’m officially at week 37 of my pregnancy. Our baby boy is considered full-term now, so technically he can make his appearance any day now. However, I think I would prefer if he would wait at least another week or maybe two. I’m not exactly ready for him just yet…and I would like him to be a nice healthy size. Although, doctors have been telling me all along that he is measuring two weeks bigger.
I would like to finish the list below before going into labor:
1) Pack the hospital bag for me, baby and hubby
2) Finish thoroughly cleaning the house (wash all bathrooms, floors, clean out office).
3) Do one more family nature outing (for a whole day)
4) Cook at least two weeks worth of freezer meals (Already made two batches of stuffed cheese crepes – thanks to my wonderful hubby!)
I think that’s it…at least for the big items.
I pray that God blesses this delivery and that I’m given the chance to have a natural birth. I know that everything is in God’s hands, but I do hope that He would bless me with a safe and natural delivery. My first delivery was an unplanned C-Section, and it made things very hard for me and I did not succeed with breastfeeding for more than three months. I hope and pray that this time our baby boy will nurse well and I would produce plenty of milk. If you remember me when you pray, please mention this in your prayers.
One other item has been worrying me lately – my spiritual health has been on the back-burner lately. I’ve been neglecting my time alone with God, reading scripture and regular prayer. I can feel that I’m so weak spiritually, and I thirst for a closeness to God – but for some reason I just can’t seem to find the time in my day to set aside and just be alone with God. I always find other things to occupy me.
God, please bring me closer to you by your Grace. Please be merciful to me and don’t let it take a painful lesson to have me come running to you (as is usually the case with me and I’m sure many others).
Well, that’s it for now. I do hope that I can get this putting my life on paper a more regular occurrence.
