Well we are officially full-term and this momma is ready to pop!! Since my last post, we had one more shower for Mason. My sweet co-workers went in together and all got me what we were still lacking! Also, this past Friday was my last day as a "working woman". I am now officially a stay-at-home mommy! I will also be working part-time for my church, doing a lot of the work from home! I am so excited about this new chapter in mine & Brandon's lives. We are taking a big leap of faith deciding on me to stay home. B's job is commission based, so we don't know exactly how much he will be bringing in each month. However, we have been fervently praying about this since we found out we were pregnant and we both feel a great peace about this decision and we are hoping our lives can be a testimony to God's faithfulness!
We celebrated Father's Day with mine & Brandon's families a few weeks ago! And we also took some maternity pictures with my fabulous sis-in-love, Jamie! She is so talented! Can't wait to see the pics she takes on the day Mason is born!!
I am SO ANXIOUS for Mason's arrival! I had my 38 week check up yesterday. Still no progression or start of labor just yet! My doctor said Mason is still sitting VERY high with no signs of dropping. She also said my pelvis is very small and he might not have dropped yet because of that. (Meaning I will probably have to have a c-section!) But she also said since this is my first, we aren't sure if that's the case or if he just simply hasn't dropped yet because he's not ready to. We will see. In the mean time, I'm mentally preparing for a c-section. I'll have an ultrasound at my next appointment to check up on the little guy! I can't wait to see him!!
Here are some pics from over the past few weeks!
