Great pictures!! Laughing at the baby's eviction notice. :-) So glad you and the HOJ are having special time together. My daughter -- now 8 -- was born on her due date (and I'd been convinced I'd go past.) Keeping you all in prayer.

Oh what a wonderful, sweet time you are in! It is so hard to wait, and yet, so precious and wonder-filled as well. Keeping you all in my prayers.

You look so beautiful. I was a puffy mess!!!
For all three of my pregnancies I was forced to wait 8-10 days late. I always had an appointment for induction but never had to go. The little people all decided to come before needing help- thankfully. Hang in there. A week or two feels like forever but is really only 7-14 days :-)

Wow, I didn't look that good when I was about six weeks pregnant, not mention forty! You look great and happy and excited and everything one hopes to be when looking forward to a birth.

I will be checking daily for updates now! Good luck!!!

The good thing about being with family when Poppy comes is the built-in help (among other things)... always a benefit in those early days when sleep will be hard to come by.

My mother told me I arrived two weeks after my due date, and breech on top of that. Hopefully you won't have to wait quite that long! Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new baby.

Hi Ali and HoJ,

I just had o tell you that you look amazing regardless of how you might feel at this moment pregancy becomes you...(maybe it's having your HoJ back home. LOL I love the eviction notice, maybe Poppy will pay attention soooon...

Can't wait to see a picture of baby Poppy and I certainly look forward to meeting her! I will keep praying for you to pop soon!

Take care and may you feel God's everlasting presence everyday!

Carol T. :-)
