Yesterday I went to my 37th doctor's appointment and also the last one of the year,Everything looked fine the baby is growing,his heart beat is in the 130s very normal and I have gained 23 pounds so far I still have 3 more weeks to grow some more lol.At my next appointment which is next week on wednesday I am going to have and ultrasound to see how big he is so I will let you know how everything went.
Yesterday I went to the Doctor for my 36 weeks check up,They checked for infection which they are going to call me to give me the results but I pray that everything comes out fine.They also checked me to see if I am already inalating(hope is how you spell it)and YES I am already ONE centimeter that means I dont have much longer to go.. The baby is already in the vertex position which is great and the Doctor said that He is about 5 pounds right now but they are going to do an ultrasound after the holidays to see exactly how big he is.. praise the Lord for his answered prayer almost all of my pregnancy they were telling me that he was measuring smaller than what he should be but yesterday she said that the Baby is in his normal weeks and everything looks perfect.Prease continue to pray for me and the baby that the labor is not as long as it was with Zeke.
This past weekend we got invited to a Christmas play it was alot of fun for Zeke and us but it also reminded us that there is a Reason to celebrate Christmas and thats all about Jesus. A Reason for the Season The name of the play was "A SHINING STAR" They had an Elephant,Tiger,Camels,horses.. A Picture with nana before the play The Gingerbread House
After a good preaching from my wonderful husband this last sunday we were able to have a good time with the young people from our church,we ordered pizza and played wii it was fun even though i did not played because I cant stretch without my belly hurting or shake my hands to play.(we had two visitors one young guy and another man from Georgia.yes,he was here for business work and Jeremi met him in a gas station the day before Jeremi saw that he was wearing a Ga shirt and started talking to him and told him about our church and invited him to come so he did).God is blessing our church so much we just continue to pray for families.
I received this invitation that I just had to pass on.
Dear loved ones,
As you well know, we are getting closer to my birthday. Every year there is a celebration in my honor, and I think that this year the celebration will be repeated. During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there are many radio announcements and TV commercials, and in every part of the world everyone is saying that my birthday is getting closer and closer.
It is really very nice to know that at least once a year some people think of Me. As you know, the celebration of my birthday began many years ago. At first people seemed to understand and be thankful for all that I did for them, but in these times no one seems to know the reason for the celebration. Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun, but they don't know the meaning of the celebration. I remember that last year there was a great feast in my honor. The dinner table was full of delicious foods,pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations were exquisite, and there were many, many beautifully wrapped gifts. But, I wasn't invited. I was the guest of honor, and they didn't remember to send Me an invitation. The party was for Me, but when that great day came, I was left outside-they closed the door in my face. And... I wanted to be with them and share their table.
Truthfully, that didn't surprise Me because in the last few years all have closed their doors to Me. Since I wasn't invited, I decided to enter the party without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner. They were all drinking, and there were some who were drunk and telling jokes and laughing at everything, having a grand ol' time. To top it all, this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the room yelling, "Ho, ho, ho!" He seemed drunk as he sat on the sofa, and all the children ran to him screaming, "Santa Claus, Santa Claus", as if the party were in his honor.
At midnight all the people began to hug each other. I extended my arms waiting for someone to hug Me, but no one did! Then they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if maybe there was one for Me. After all, how would you feel if on your birthday everybody shared gifts and you didn't get a one? I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly left.
Every year it gets worse. People only remember the eating, the drinking, the gifts, the parties, and nobody remembers Me. I would like it if this Christmas you would allow Me to enter into your life. I would like it if you would recognize the fact that almost two thousand years ago I came to this world to give my life for you, on the cross, to save you. Today, my only desire is that you believe this with all your heart.
I want to share something further with you. As many didn't invite Me to their party, I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party that no one has ever imagined. I'm still making the final arrangements. Today I am sending out many invitations, and there is one for you. I want to know if you wish to attend, and I will make a reservation for you and write your name with golden letters in my great guest book. Only those on my guest list will be invited to the party; those who don't respond to the invitation will be left outside. Be prepared so that when all is ready you can be part of my great party.
Wow December already,well it was time for the christmas tree and decorations to be up so last weekend as our family night we decorated our tree which it was alot of fun seeing Zeke getting so excited with the tree and lights. Zeke had to take a picture after the tree was all decorated!!
Well I never got back with you about my glucose test results the week after I had the test they call me and told me that everything had come out good, so that was a big blessing and praise the Lord for that.In my appointment they said that the baby is growing,I am growing and everything looks great, so that is another blessing. Now I am in the point where is hard to find a good position to sleep,My belly is big and on the way,the baby moves non stop and feels like he is in a trampoline all the time.Yes we are very excited knowing that Eli will be in our arms in the next 7 weeks I am sure seven weeks are going to pass by really quick because we are going to be very busy with the holidays and baby shopping so please keep me and my family in your prayers.
well we had a good thanksgiving day in the morning Jeremi and I cooked breakfast for the family(my in-laws and brother and sister in law),and for Dinner my mother-in-law cooked the delicious turkey with gravy,mashed potatoes,sweet potatoes and all of that good stuff.WE DID MISS MY FAMILY AND JEREMI'S GRANDPARENTS SPECIALLY HER BREAKFAST.lol)But like ashley said in her post we are blessed and forward to start new traditions and new experiences in the new place that God has placed us.)
This morning we got up at 5am and went to the great sales that many stores offer this day its a good opportunity to find alot for your christmas list(course if you get up early otherwise you dont find some of the things you would like to have),I personally found some things that I been wanting to get Zeke and I found them for a very good price but my other experience was that toys r us opened at 4am and I did not get there till almost 6am I found in the sales paper last night that they were going to have a swing set for 50% off but when I got there they were gone oh well next time I need to really be an earlybird.lol Anyways I hope you all had a great thanksgiving day and starting to feel the christmas spirit.
