Had my 39 week appointment today. The good news is that McKenna is doing great and my body is handling the final days of pregnancy very well. My blood pressure was 100/60, McKenna's heartbeat was strong at 136 and I measured 38cm. My body is progressing naturally, which also makes me happy. It still looks like we are going to have a Christmas baby, I know I could have her anytime but sometime next week is the most likely scenario.
I really wanted to have her this week for personal reasons only. Physically this pregnancy has been a breeze and I could carry her for a few more weeks if necessary. Next week is Christmas and I really want to be home with Addison on Christmas day (still might be, but who knows) and the week after is my brother's wedding. Today I thought we can celebrate Jesus' birthday any day, she will not know the difference. The only big bummer is not being able to be at my brother's wedding. Not saying it wont happen, but the longer McKenna is in my belly the less likely it will be, especially with the wedding being in Salado.
God is in control and has the perfect date set for McKenna's birth. I just have to be patient and not try to take things in my own control and sent an induction date, haha. I am starting to like the idea of McKenna being born the same day as our Savior! So stay tuned... my 40 week appointment is set for the 23rd.
Brian and Carrie have been married since January 2004. We love the Lord and are blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive, loving family. In July 2009 we welcomed our first daughter, Addison Rose. She is a spunky, fun toddler and we love her so much. Sweet McKenna Noelle was born on Christmas Day 2010. Having two children 17 months apart is a little crazy, but that is our life and we would not change it for the world.
Our families theme scripture is "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Our life since getting married has been an amazing journey and hope you enjoy reading about it.
