People have warned us about the last two weeks of pregnancy and I heard them but in true Riley fashion I thought, oh it won't be that bad. It is that bad. I have been nesting for several weeks and there just isn't much left to do. We just have to wait... and wait... and wait. I was given a bit of relief from swelling the past weekend by getting into a nice cool pool. The temperature is rising and the humidity is almost unbearable. I am swollen all over. My husband has made me feel like the most beautiful person in the world during pregnancy. He isn't good at faking things so I know he truly sees something I don't and I am so grateful. My eyes see a swollen face that doesn't look like mine. Legs that are weak, large, and desperate to be worked out. He sees... I don't know what he sees, but I do know that he makes me feel beautiful and wanted.
We have labor/delivery plan, unless Louisa decides to come early, we will go to the hospital Sunday July 24th at 9:00p to be induced. Mike and I both are a bit nervous about being induced. If you are seeking prayer requests we have a couple:
-Pray for my body to go naturally into labor
-Prayer for both of our families travels here once she arrives
-Prayer for rest (for both Mike and myself)
Thank you all for taking the time to read this blog. It is a very special thing for me and I am excited to begin this journey with you.
