Today marks 36 weeks on this pregnancy journey and I could not be more thrilled to announce that I've made it! Well...this far at least! If you have stayed up to date with our pregnancy updates you might remember our slightly scary news from 2 weeks ago (Kirby Baby #3 Update) concerning the progress of our sweet bundle.
After two weeks of bed rest...which is seriously no joke people...I was going nuts sitting on my butt watching others do a job that I should be doing. Not only did I feel extreme amounts of guilt but I hated putting other people in charge of my responsibilities.
I feel extremely humbled and blessed by the insurmountable amount of support that seemed to rally around our growing family at such a scary time. I cannot thank my family and friends enough for going (WAY) out of their way to watch my kids, cook us dinner, pick up groceries, and love on us. We could never fully express the amount gratitude we feel for all of who have sent us notes of encouragement and know that we feel incredibly blessed by your willingness to partner with us in prayer.
As of right now, things are still progressing but at this point there is nothing that they can/will do to prevent the baby from coming. I come off progesterone today which has been the major reason I have kept this baby in for as long as I have. After this last dose has run its course there is no telling what could happen. With my history of having both of my babies at 36 weeks there is a larger likelihood that I will also have this one early as well.
But all we can do is pray and believe that God's got everything under control, after all HIS timing is way more perfect than our own. Again, Guy and I cannot thank you all enough for your continued thoughts and prayers! We will keep you posted on this babies progress as we get closer!
