Still Pregnant...and Reflecting:)

Ok-so don't hate me. This is yet another post having nothing to do with food and with no recipe. Sorry! Maybe if I am up to it today I will make something to keep my mind off of having this baby!

So only 3 days away from my due date, still pregnant, although all signs point to this little girl wants outa there considering how dilated I am and how low she is (according to my Dr she is REALLY low). I keep telling her it's ok she can come out already, but guess she wants some more time in my belly. Guess I am just going to have to practice motherly patience for the first time:)

As I am nearing my due date, and getting so close to holding my precious baby girl, I am looking back at the road it has taken to get her. I look back to the first lupron shot I had to take, the many moments of emotional break downs cause my hormonies were outa wack, the many moments of "what if" thinking which nearly drove me crazy, and the very special moment when I was given pictures of the two ebryos they were going to implant. I remember looking at those pictures thinking one or both of those embryos could make a pregnancy and eventually be my child. It was such a crazy moment, I was blown away by both science and my Father in Heaven, I truly felt like this was such a miracle. I remember after the implantation lying there just hoping and praying this would work. I am so grateful that my Father in Heaven felt it was the right time for me to become a mommy. I know everyone's time in life is different for everything, and I am so grateful that this is my time, and I can soon hold this little girl who has been kicking up a storm in my belly:)

A quick funny story:)
Yesterday, this was a little conversation I had with my sweet heart, it went like this:
Me: "Micah, do you want to see our baby's coming home from the hospital outfit?"
Micah: "She can wear clothes already?"
Me: "What do you mean? What do you think she'll come home from the hospital in?"
Micah: "just naked in a diaper cause won't she still be all gooshey?"

My sweetheart was dead serious as these words were coming out of his mouth. I still don't know what he meant by "gooshey". Anyways, I thought it was pretty funny:) I think he's pretty nervous to meet her and I can see why if he thinks she is going to be all "gooshey" :)


  1. So excited to see your update. I can hardly wait to hear the happy news when she arrives.

  2. Oh my heavens I just died laughing! (The above post must be from my mom, I must be logged in on her computer and when she posted it said "rick and kori") Seriously that story was so funny. No wonder he is nervous for her to come! Hang in there two more days, then I will be home and you can have her whenever you want :)

  3. Hahaha oh, I love the story- how exciting for you two!! I am so happy that everything worked out and your sweet baby will be here soon- can't wait to see pictures!

  4. Yes, so funny! I love the sometimes innocent minds of men.

    Good luck girl.
    Remember, no matter how hard it gets, YOU CAN do it!
