And now I had the two most stinkin' cute kids ever, don't you agree?
Then Corey gradutated from school, we moved to Virginia, found out we were expecting again, and we moved to Brazil in Feb. And as I experienced a mere 4 months living on foreign soil I turned into a stressed out woman. I didn't exercise cause I was of the mentality that you needed a gym or atleast weights. So I ate lots of chocolate and washed clothes by hand and we had an adventure. But I struggled abroad. And struggled some more after we moved back, so it wasn't the circumstances but more likely it was my thinking, I needed a serious mental shift to fix my attitude. Anyway, we didn't have insurance when we got back, I was due September 4th, Corey was hoping it would kick in with a job he was going to start on Sept 14th and that I wouldn't go into labor until then. So, eventhough I was back with Dr. Smith and could have been induced at 39 weeks, I stuck it out. And was glad I didn't go til the 14th, she was born on September 3rd. (She could have made the school year cut off had I been induced, so sad. It's been a long year for her but she's excited to finally start school this fall). So yeah, I went all natural with Abi and didn't even get the epidural, and for the first time had lots of pain for weeks after her birth with contractions, I didn't like that, but still it I enjoyed being able to say I'd gone all natural. Here's Abi at a week old, what a cutie.
So, there's a brief overview of my past Delivery Days. We'll see what next week brings. I always feel a little nervous about complications or something going wrong, the same way I make plans to be a widow whenever Corey travels. But it's in the Lord's hands, whatever happens, He is in control and I trust in Him and His plan for us. :)
