The waiting game....

I am now 6 days past my due date.... And by the lack of contractions, this little one may have to be forced out! I have an induction date of June 13th. I'm trying to stay positive knowing she will come all in His perfect timing and that no one has been pregnant forever.

I started my maternity leave Monday and I've come to realize I don't know what to do with all this spare time. I'm trying to get out of the house, get some fresh air and exercise. I've cleaned the house, hung out with my sister, went shopping, visited James at work, and even worked on some crafts, but I still find myself with so much extra time. I know I should soak it up because it will definitely not be like this when Emery is here. 

The plus side of just waiting for Emery, I was able to work on some headbands with the help of my sister and mother in law. 

We also took Chloe to the park a couple of times this week. My fave so far is this park that has a beautiful nature setting with little creeks, wild flowers, and beautiful green rolling hills. They even have these awesome musical instruments for children to play like xylophones, glockenspiels, chimes and pipes. Chloe's favorite part is still the swings. She can swing for an hour and not get bored. We will actually leaving soon to go to the bay and visit another park today. I love park time!

I even kept Chloe out of school one day just to spend some quality mommy daughter time. It was precious. Even though being a mommy to a toddler can be stressful at times, Chloe really knows how to make my heart flutter (almost as much as her daddy). I just love her snuggles, kisses, smiles, and the way she loves to sing to herself. It's so hard to imagine that I will be able to love another child as much as I do Chloe. Although, I know it is possible, but until Emery is actually here, it's hard to see how my heart can have more room for all the love I already have and more love that will come so soon. 

Hopefully little one will be here this weekend, it would be nice to have James with me for 9 full days... and it would be nice to finally see that sweet face of Emery's and give her lots of hugs and kisses. 
Thank you everyone for your prayers!

40 weeks and still pregnant

Yesterday was my due date... And Emery is still snug as a bug in my belly... It doesnt seem she has plans to come out any day soon.

Thats okay i guess, since i have been battling sickness and sinus infection for 13 days now... Im sure shes just waiting until I'm better and in good enough shape to go through labor.

I have officially started maternity leave on my due date. Ive been scurrying around to various doctors appointments and trying to soak up as much time as i can with James and Chloe.

I went to the hospital saturday because i was having horrible contractions from 8 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon, but as soon as we got there, they started to die down (isn't that how it always works?) so after about 5 hours of dilation checks, contraction monitoring and walking, they sent me home. And i haven't had very many contractions since then... I know she'll comr in God's perfect timing, but i am definitely over it.

As you can see i haven't exactly kept up with the old blog, writing nor reading... Im sure that will change when I'm home with the baby. Thank you to all the people who have been checking in on me, I really appreciate it!

Being overdue and sick is a horrible combination, please pray for a super quick recovery. The doctors said they will induce me on the 13th if shes not made her appearance yet, so that only gives me 8 days to get in tip top shape!
