Welcome Selah Faith!

My 37-week appointment with the doctor got canceled, and there were many doctors out for the upcoming July 4th holiday, so I just skipped it since I wasn't having any complications. I saw my doctor the next week on Friday when I was 38 weeks 4 days pregnant. We did a non-stress test, which Selah passed. I was 3cm dilated and about 80% effaced. My weight was down a little more from the previous visit, so overall I was at 26 lbs gained this pregnancy. That's the smallest gain ever for me. I asked Dr. Spaulding to schedule an induction for the following week, and she agreed. She said she would call me back with the next available time the hospital had.

36 Weeks!

I'm still feeling pretty great! This was a fun week for me as I anticipated a growth scan ultrasound and some other tests at my appointment on Thursday. Thankfully we are pretty busy here at camp, so the week has flown by. I'm feeling great, though tired. I do get backaches occasionally and Braxton-Hicks contractions are sometimes longer and take my breath away. Those are annoying. I have resumed drinking my morning cup of coffee, and the daily swelling in my ankles (and the crazy water-weight gain) has gone away completely. My weight has normalized once again.

35 Weeks Pregnant and Updates

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. Time is slipping away so quickly.

Malachi is 11!

Whoohoo! We celebrated Malachi's birthday a couple weeks ago. It feels like he's already been 11 for months, but then just yesterday he told someone he is 10. LOL

Tirzah's 9th Birthday

We celebrated Tirzah's birthday a week before we moved. (Does that give me a pass for being a blogger who's too busy to blog?) Before any more time gets away I want to record how Tirzah has grown in the past year.

We are so thankful for how Mrs. E shows her love to our kids. She doesn't let the fact that there are so many of them deter her from celebrating each one.

Mitch is as fun-loving as always.
