Today is July 25- our due date. So far baby Ella has decided not to show her face. For some reason I thought this baby girl would be early but now I am having to practice more patience than ever. I have had contractions off and on now for almost two weeks but the midwives say that my progress is slow. They won't do any interventions to induce me till my 42nd week. I am working on getting sleep (very difficult right now) and keeping myself occupied while I wait. The Lord is definitely my strength. Nathan is also such an encouragement to me and tries to keep me distracted. I feel very blessed to have him as my husband and baby daddy. We are both ecstatic about meeting her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
