Oh how I wonder!

My mind seems to be running non-stop lately as we await the arrival of our precious little one!  I feel ready to go into labor and I can honestly say that I am not scared one bit about it!  EVERYTHING is going to be different this time since Christopher will be here for her arrival, I am excited to experience this with him and not over Skype!  The nursery isn't 110% complete but I am planning on finishing it this week, my bag isn't completely packed either and the car seat will be installed this week . . we have time, right?

I wonder who she will look like?  Will things go as planned?  How much is Miss chunker going to weigh?  Will she have hair?  How will Christopher react?  Can I do this without pain meds?  How will Isabell adjust to not being the only princess in the house?  These are all questions that run through my mind over and over again but I just don't know, all I can do is prepare as best as I can and pray.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers these next few weeks, there is going to be a ton of excitement in the Anderson Household!!

Say yes to pain meds if you need them so you can enjoy the birth. I still felt every part of the birth just with a slightly milder pain. You still feel it even with meds.

I did have an epidural with Isabell but only long enough to take a nap, I woke up and it was gone and was happy because I didn't want it in the first place but it did help me progress! Going to do whatever I can to go without this time!

We'll definitely pray for you. The second one often goes faster than the first. I didn't have time to get pain meds with the second one but I really didn't need it since it went so fast. Hopefully, yours will go that well too!

Okay, I commented but it didn't show up. We'll definitely pray for you. I think the second one often shoots out a little quicker than the first. I didn't have time for an epidural with my second but it happened so quickly that it wasn't really necessary anyway. I hope yours is the same (oh, and I only pushed for 6 minutes at the most).

I am so looking forward to meeting your newest addition and being able to bring you dinner! Be sure to let us know when baby comes so we can get a meal calendar up and running.

You are already ahead of the game with your awesome attitude about embracing what comes. Praying for you and the safe delivery of Baby A.
