The Final Days

My energy tank is officially on "E". I can honestly say that I am now tired of being pregnant. I never remember feeling this way with my two girls. Maybe it is the impending holidays and all the hustle & bustle that typically accompanies it. Maybe it is the pile of sewing projects that for some reason I just have no passion for. Every time I walk by the sewing table, it's as if the fabric holds its breath, hoping, just hoping, that I will stop to give it some love & turn it into something beautiful. It all collectively *sighs* as I pass on by, as do I, wishing that I could do more. And seeing as I have no energy for the things I love to do, the things I really don't like {cleaning, laundry, dishes} are most definitely doomed. I am barely online anymore, pausing only to check my email & the blogs of my nearest & dearest.

I am trying to be patient, I really am. I want to finish this chapter of pregnancy with grace & continued appreciation for the miracle of life. Not knowing how many, if any, more children we will have, I try to be grateful for all the moments that I have left with my exceedingly enormous belly. I feel especially emotionally drained & just plain worn out. I just feel like our lives {and the lives of some of those I will be relying on} are in a holding pattern, just waiting for the moment when I get to say those two precious words, "It's time." So, if you are of the sort, please pray for me in my final days of pregnancy. It will lift my spirits to know that you are out there praying.

And yet...in 6 weeks you will think back on these days and wonder how they flew by so fast. Especially when you look upon the face of you baby and realize that not only is he growing...he couldn't have fit back into your belly!

Time fly's! And I hope it fly's for you too!

Oh and btw...I love being pregnant around the holidays. So much hustle and bustle and I always feel like it is a good time to have a baby in rememberance of the baby who was given to us!

Will pray! SLOW DOWN and enjoy your moments with your other two.

Sit down, put your feet up...and cram in as many Christmas cookies as you can while you can! Eating for two is such a blast!

Seriously though, rest. Hopefully everyone understands you're nine months pregnant and will give you a break. Besides, yuo don't need to go into newborn mode already over-tired.
