It’s D Day!  Today, October 26, 2012, is our official due date!   It seems like just yesterday  we found out we were expecting and our lives changed forever.  I can’t believe I’ve made it this far!  40 weeks is a long time to be pregnant!  This is by far the biggest project I’ve ever worked on and one of the most challenging tasks that I’ve done my entire life.  Growing a human being is not easy!   These last nine+ months have been filled with many highs and a few lows but its mostly been a time of joyful anticipation. We are eager to meet this precious little daughter of ours and be a family of three!

As much as I’ve enjoyed being pregnant, I can’t wait to be done and be a mommy now!  I’m at the point where I can’t wait to have my body back!  It’s amazing how much your body changes in the last 40 weeks:

I didn’t anticipate growing so much!!  I was hoping to be one of those little petite women who barely show, but no, I’ve been slowly waddling around like an elephant the last few months.  If I don’t go into labor tonight, I’ll be induced tomorrow night and hopefully meet this little baby girl of ours by the end of this weekend.   Please pray for us as I go through quite possibly the most physically hardest and emotionally taxing thing I will have ever done my entire life.  I’m going to do my best to update this blog in the next month or so, but please forgive me if posts are not as frequent.  I’ll drop by with updates as much as I can!

To our sweet baby girl- your daddy and I can’t wait to welcome you into this world! We love you so much!

Congratulations on your due date! My son is 3 months old and I was induced (long, long story). I was so excited to meet my baby that I didn’t remember the pain or discomfort the minute I saw our son… it’s amazing how your body will give you the energy and peace of mind to make it through the entire labor process. No worries! I can’t wait to hear about your little baby girl!

I’m guessing by the fact that you haven’t posted in 4 days that your little girl has made her grand entrance…. Congratulations!!

That or you don’t have power due to the hurricane :\

Hoping that your absence means you are a busy bustling new mama to a healthy new baby girl.
