39 Weeks and Counting!

I found this message on my facebook this morning from one of our former youth group students, Kelsey, who is near and dear to my heart. Made me laugh and I thought I'd share it here.

Dear Baby Girl,
I hope you're having fun swimming around in your mommy's belly but the time is near for you to come in to the world! There are something’s I would like to inform you of before your arrival. First, you have the greatest parents....I know, I're probably rolling your eyes right now but do. Second, even though your dad might tell you to be Cardinals and Michigan fan, he's wrong. He hit his head as a young child and never learned the ways of living in Illinois. You will be a beautiful cubs & illini fan :) Third, I want to warn you of your parent’s addiction. One word...starbucks. Stay far, far away. Well, I think that's all I needed to tell you for now. Don't worry; I'll continue to share my wisdom with you as soon as I meet you :) I love you baby girl. Be nice to your mommy on the way out. See you soon!

Today I am 39 weeks! Any time now, we'll be meeting our little girl. I'm getting very excited. My entire pregnancy I've been very content with the fact that Baby Girl won't be here until April 29th or later. Yesterday, I had a major mind shift. People kept saying to me "She'll be here this week" or "Be prepared for her to come early!". I was trying hard not to get excited at that possibility but I failed, and I was a little disappointed to find out at the Dr appointment yesterday that I was 1.5 cm and no more effaced than last week.

So...April 29th it is! For my sanity's sake, I'm going back to my old mindset. My baby will arrive when she's ready and we're ready whenever she is.


  1. So exciting Anne - I can't wait to hear that she has made her appearance!

    I can completely relate with the impatience of the final stages of pregnancy. We are about 6 weeks out from heading to China to bring home Suhn and I am feeling SO IMPATIENT! 6 weeks feels like an eternity!

    Nothing I can do but wait. Praying for you as you await her arrival!

  2. It will be here before you know it and 1 1/2 cm is a great start already! We are so excited for you. :)

  3. Anne, Kelsey was 12 days late and I was so thrilled when she finally decided to make her appearance. She was a wonderful baby and now she is a fantastic 20 year old young lady. Yikes, where did the time go to??? We were watching some home movies last weekend and it just baffles me how fast she grew.

    Praying for you and Matt, you will soon be a family of three!!!

    Love and hugs!
