Getting Close!

We leave tomorrow for Kansas - woohoo! My hubby is convinced we won't have to wait long there till the baby comes. He might be right, but I'm trying studiously to not expect to go into labour as soon as we arrive! Besides, I'd really like to get to help out at camp for a least a few days... We'll see what the Lord has in store.

I'm feeling good; still having lots of contractions and having to listen when my body signals me to sit or lay down if I don't want to have this baby yet. ;-) I have a busy day today, so if you think of it, I'd treasure your prayers that I will be wise in my actions.

Talked to an acquaintance last night who is at opposite poles of so many spectrums from me. When she heard that we were going to Kansas so that we could have our baby with a legal midwife she asked, "And you want to use a midwife instead of a doctor because....?" with that special tone in her voice that clearly labeled us as idiots. ;-) I didn't bother to get into quality & quantity of care; into the fact that the midwives we've worked with have respected us, the parents, as wise decision-makers for our children; into 5 minute vs. 30-45 minute prenatals, etc, etc. I just said, "Well, repeated studies have shown that they have as safe and healthy results as doctors, with fewer of the interventions that can cause problems later." Brief synopsis, but I didn't get any more idiot comments. :-D

Well, anyway... I'd better get going on my tasks for the day. I hope to post pictures later of Grace's B-Day cake and such from tonight.

I was praying for you last night Laurel, wondering how you go about readying up your house, and NOT putting yourself into labor. It is a unique situation to have that long of a drive.

Looking forward to seeing you on thursday!
