coming up!!!



The due date is getting close!!! Only 16 more days!

Just for fun, I have added a new poll for you to guess what day the baby will be born if you want. See the left sidebar and don't forget to leave me a comment telling me why you voted as you did. :)

I am feeling very calm and confident right now about the birth. I am thankful for God working that way in me because if you know me at all you know that I am not above anxiety :) particularly regarding change. :)

I trust God's perfect timing for when this baby should be born. It will be exciting to see when that is and who this little kiddo is as well!!

One prayer request if I may: I have not been sleeping very well. I would love to get some good sleep before this baby does come both for the physical labor of labor :) and for all of those sleep deprived nights that are to come.

Is there anything you would like for me to pray for you about?

Thanks! Kelly

speaking of birthdays, today is also my friend Deborah's birthday!!

Happy birthday, Deborah!!! Kelly

Yes, SO CLOSE. I will be praying for sweet sleep.

Monday, the 19th. No special reason, I just have a inkling!

I won't venture a guess on the due date...I've had late ones and one early one - I don't know what to expect anymore!

I'll pray for sleep...

The baby shower photos and post were just beautiful. What a precious time!

Hey Kelly...I found your blog from your Mom's blog. Congrats on the new little one coming! I think its a girl, just a hunch. With both of my kiddos, I slept the last couple of weeks in the recliner. It was where I could get in the most comfortable position for sleeping...I just propped pillows all around me.

I have a sweet attachment to April 5, because it was my daddy's birthday. Good day to start off life!

Just saw you made a nice comment on the mother huddle about my ribbon storage idea, wanted to say thanks! Good luck with your new baby. Very cute ideas at your baby shower.

I voted for tomorrow--because you are close enough to your due date now that I say the sooner the better. I am so excited and anxious to find out who this little one is. :-)

And I second the comment about the recliner. I don't know if you have a recliner or not, but they really are more comfortable than the bed at the end. With both Amy and Katelyn I spent several nights in the recliner. It is kind of lonely to fall asleep by yourself in the living room, but once I got to sleep I slept so much better that I wasn't aware of being alone.

I am praying for sleep and a healthy, safe delivery.

I voted for Sweetie's birthday, because I know how much she means to you (like Mamaw to me!). However, I was kinda hoping that we'd get the call TODAY--my birthday--that you were having him/her. It is only fair, though, since Joshua was rebellious and missed your birthday by ONE MEASLY HOUR!

Sleep--I found that the more I could prop myself up, the better I felt those last couple of weeks. The recliner is a good idea too, but ours never worked for me.

Thank you so much for honoring me by your birthday wishes! Love you so much.

I, too, think it would be so wonderful to have 3 generations with the same birthday so I voted for April 13th. Dad thinks April 12th. We CAN'T wait.

Kelly! I can't believe you're only 16 days away!! I just did a little catching up on your life via your blog...and let me say that you are a beautiful, glowing mother-to-be! I just can't wait to get an update on your life when you get the chance (cause you couldn't possibly be busy these days, could you?) I will be praying for your sleep and for your new little one...he/she has no choice but to be perfect! :)

Love and miss you dear friend! Meredith
