News from the Nest

My little unborn daughter, Gabriella, has dropped.  I feel like we've both become significantly lighter.  I've been getting braxton hicks contractions in the evenings (during dinner...which kind of makes 'family time' hard:)


Man have I been nesting!  I mean, I've been "polishing the china" type nesting!  Hahahah!  I made home made bread.  From scratch...With flour from a bag that didn't start as bread...LOL!  It's been wonderful....And the kids and Dad all loved the bread!:)

I'll keep you posted as we go, but know that I'm praying for you all, my dear readers (especially those who are expecting their own little miracles too!)  I don't remember my daughter dropping this early, so maybe I've got my first "early bird" on my hands.  All the others were an average of 10-12 days late.  *sigh* Thy will be done Lord.


  1. I hope you're a little early this time! Ten to 12 days late must be a real trial to bear! Glad to hear she's dropped...always such a relief and calm before the storm.

    I am nesting with you in spirit but the body is weak, weak, weak. I feel like I have nothing left. I'm sure I have too much on my plate and that I need time to just rest and wait and nest...but that time time doesn't seem to be scheduled into the calendar!

    Praying for you and Gabriella!

  2. Oh Melody! You're in my thoughts and prayers too! I hope you're able to take a little time out for you and baby (?) to enjoy these "final days".

  3. Ah...looking forward to Gabriella's safe arrival. Prayers for a good birth going your way. :)

  4. Keeping you/family in my prayers..I have a special prayer "section" just for pregnant Moms and those who pray to be Moms. It's such a miracle. God Bless..keep us updated as best you can. D-in-law is trying to conceive and my niece is due (her first) in November. Keep them in your prayers, too..please. N

  5. Thanks Nanette! Prayers for your loved ones on the way (please see my latest post for a great idea!)

  6. Patty, I haven't stopped by in a while, Just haven't made the time to read the blogs ya know..but I am glad to know you are doing well and that little Gabriella is on her way soon. Keeping you and your family in prayer. Love love your background. Those roses are just beautiful.
