Time

See my new little ticker on the right? There is baby A :) 139 days to go...wow! Wow, wow, WOW! That is a whole lot of days. In the grand scheme of my life though...not so much. These are the little conversations that go on in my head over the last few days, since finding out that the only way I feel good is if I rest for most of the day. Rest laying down mainly so there is less pressure on my cervix. My antibiotics for the UTI are almost done and I thought I might feel better at this stage but I am not. Having 3 kiddies and being on a bed rest is something to adjust to that is for sure. Will it all be worth it in the end? Yes, that is for sure. I have to focus on the fact that we need to do this for this baby GIRL, so she can grow in this incompetent body of mine. Today has been easy to rest, as Wes went to work and the little guys are at Grandmas & Papa G's and Aidan is at school. So, I rest easy. It is once they are home that I want to hang out with them...watch them play, water my plants outside, take photos, even do dishes, make meals and do laundry! Wes' parents came over last night after the kiddies were in bed and that was so nice...we had some good conversation and a game of Scrabble. That is what we need...to still be in contact with people so that this whole "rest" thing doesn't seem like some sort of plague. So, ideas of things I can do while I am resting...well I know there are tonnes of things I want to do, like read all those books I buy and never make time to read and now I have the time to work with my Photoshop program that I used to complain that it all just takes so much "time" to figure out. I am going to be sad when the boys start doing summer activities, because of course they should still enjoy themselves even though I can't come. Why am I anticipating this already?? I should stop typing all my thoughts. So, that being said...I guess I ask that you if you think of me through your day, send a little prayer up for Jesus for my spirit...that I can remain positive in all of this...and that I can be an encourager and so supportive to my husband who, all of a sudden, is both Mom & Dad. Wes is such an amazing guy, just trying to do everything he can for us...and it tires him and I can understand that. He feels pressure to be at home, he feels pressure to be at work...HE is in demand my friends and I am so glad he is by my side...him and Jesus...wouldn't do life without them :)

OH Shauna, I hope you are able to rest and that your spirit remains positive :) I can understand how frustrating that must be. I will keep praying that God keeps you and this baby GIRL(!!) safe and healthy ! Take care- and you can always call me when you're bored!! Love you! :) G

You are an amazing mom... if this is how God has determined your princess will enter the world then, bring on the bed rest. The boys are children... resilient adn energetic. Sure they might have moments of wanting mommy or being so cute you want to join in but next summer when their beautiful healthy sister and mommy come out to the park with them, it will all be worth it.

I am praying for you and that "peach". I will also pray for that wonderful gift of a husband you have. May his strength and patience be great. Your little girl and her brothers couldn't ask for more loving, giving parents. God bless you!!
