5 1/2 weeks to go

I am in the final count down. I had an ultrasound today and everything looks good. He is in just the right position and it was cute b/c he got the hickups during the untrasound. I am hanging in there. Of course we decided to try and fix up our house to put on the market so we have been staying busy painting, putting new floors down and putting stuff in storage. It is taking longer than we would have liked and I am getting more and more useless. Thankfully, I am still able to paint (no heavy lifting involved). Our hope is to sell our house and be able to buy something a bigger that is around the same morgage payment as we are paying right now. I remind myself that God is in control of it all, including timing. I am getting more and more uncomfortable but I think that is good b/c it has made me anxious to get to meet this little man but not too early I keep reminding him.

As the due date closes in, I find that we are in need of prayer. We had hoped that Rusty would have found employment by now but he hasn't. I am at a loss of what to do about daycare b/c we just have no way of paying for it and don't know who we would even go to. I have to say that I hate the fact that he is going to have to go to daycare at so little but right now there are few options for us. We still need to get his room cleaned out and ready. I realize that we are little behind in this aspect considering a lot of people have this done at around six months or so. I am hoping to do some of it when my family is here visiting during their Spring Break.

I am getting very excited to meet him even though there are questions about how in the world we are going to pay for everything. But there are several things ihat are for sure God knows, God is in control, God can do anything, and God is our provider.

Hopefully the next blog will be reports of being in labor and his arrival.
