Two weeks to go...

Today I am 38 weeks pregnant which means I am only two weeks away from my due date! Two weeks does not seem that far away but when you are waiting for your baby to join your family it seems like a lifetime away. If for some reason, I do not go naturally we have a planned c-section date of September 3rd. We are hoping and praying I can have Eliana naturally after having Ethan via c-section but realize this might not be possible. We just want a healthy baby and momma. I went to the doctor yesterday and Eliana is doing well and has dropped some, which is a good sign.

The end of this journey has brought many emotions for me. I am so excited to meet the little one who is growing inside of me. I anxious about how I will do as a mother of a toddler and an infant. I realize this is a commonplace thing and women do it all the time but I am still nervous. I am also a bit nervous about how my sweet little boy will take to not being the center of attention anymore. He is a bit of a mommas boy and is not going to like having to share. Most of all, I am joyful I have the opportunity to bring new life into the world again and become a momma for a second time. The Lord has truly been good to us.

Keep praying for us and we'll keep you updated. A friend of mine guesses Eliana will join us Aug. 25th and my sister-in-law, Jamie, has said she will come between Aug. 19 - 25th. Any other guesses?

You will be just fine! Becoming a mother of 2 is tricky, but so is becoming a mother of 1!! ;) Yes, it will take some adjusting on everyone's part, but it will be fine! You will be great!! I'm sure Ethan will love his baby sister!! And, more than likely, he won't remember life without her, which I think is kind of neat!

My guess. . . Aug 26th. Not sure why. . just popped into my head.
