Ramblings in the early hours

Well, it's 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning....technically, I could stay in bed for another 2 hours, but I've been tossing and turning most of the night and just really restless. So 2 more hours in the bed sounded somewhat torturous!
Nothing new to report. We're just a handful of days away from my due date. Although, I feel "too good" to really think that I'll be giving birth anytime soon. I don't think he's dropped at all, although for the past 3 or so weeks, I don't feel him lodging his feet in my ribs. But I don't have that "trying to hold a bowling bowl between my legs" feeling that some said I would have when he's dropped (sorry if that was too much information for any male readers or squeamish female readers). So, we wait. I plan on working full-time up until he arrives and every morning for the last week or so I get numerous "So, you're still here?! No baby yet?!" comments. What happened to, "Good morning Becca.....good to see you today."?
Today is to be our last Sunday at Rockford Baptist Church. I don't think it's quite hit us yet that we'll be done with our ministry there (especially since we'll still be living so close). It is sad to think that we won't be going there anymore. Although we know we'll still have contact with those that we've developed friendships with. It's just hard to leave a ministry when you feel like things aren't complete.....but in reality, there will always be more work to do.....

Hmmmm.....any other rambling thoughts in the dark hours of the morning??........
I don't think so.

you seem to do well in the midst of so many huge changes in your life. Everyone is different when it comes to the signs you are ready to have your baby. It won't surprise me if you "feel good" when your labor starts! I hate being so far away with you and Dan's nephew' babies so close to being born this week. I do know my doctor always seemed to be very accurate on his opinion of how close I was to delivery of a baby. Your weekly check ups and your body signals should be the best indicators of impending birth!

Hey Becca, don't lose heart... Morgan didn't drop until the day she was born. Hang in there. We can't wait to see pic of our nephew.

Becca, I'm so excited for you! Your nursery looks so cozy it made ME want to take a nap in it!
Blessings,
