Baby Liam | Week 40

_MG_4698-Edit.jpg

Hey baby boy, WE made it to 40 weeks. You're pretty tight in there, and things have gotten harder, but you're still pretty cozy and I am still happy to have you inside. I am not rushing you in any way. We do our daily things together, homeschooling, preparing food, cleaning the house, shopping and planning... and you have allowed me to do it all. I am so thankful for this pregnancy. I didn't know I wanted to be a mother for the third time. The thought of going through pregnancy and birth scared me a lot before I found out about you. I didn't have two easy pregnancies or two easy births, both first pregnancies were hard and left me wanting it to 'just be over' at the end. With you though, what a difference...it makes me feel like I could do this again. I would have never 'thought it' when I was pregnant with your sisters. Anyway, since we are officially overdue, the doctor has set the date for next Monday, March 12th, a day after you complete 41 weeks. I am excited to meet you then, if that is the case, but I am still hopeful that you will surprise me and come before. I would love the experience of feeling contractions and deciding what time to go to the hospital with you, but either way, I am excited to meet you soon... maybe in 4 days!

 Your sister is so excited to meet you. She has been making a thousand plans of what she will do or where she will go when I go birth you. We are all so so excited!
