Motivate Me Monday! Babies and...Stuff

Good morning! Let's give a big welcome to Melissa from...


This gal has a sense of humor, and after her day on Tuesday, the poor woman is blessed to have one! Go give her some love!

As for my MMM post...

Is It Time Yet?!
Ya'll (yes, I said it and no I'm not from the South - hi Lisa - wink wink), I have been going CRAZY with these last few weeks of preggoness. Each day feels like it should be the day. When I wake up in the morning, I seriously feel like a little old lady - joints hurt, back hurts, uterus feels like it's going to fall out! How do women do it who have 18 kids?! (Um, Mrs. Duggar, how do you even still have a uterus?) I'm only on my third and I feel like things down there are just going to start falling out...woops, honey, can you grab that? Ooh, that too, thanks! I need to have this baby NOW!
Okay, so where's the motivating post you ask? Keep reading...
I am motivated by the fact that this babe will come in God's perfect timing (or my several attempts at inducing labor). Baby ain't gonna be in there by this time next month! I am going to have this little girl, she will be here before I know it, and I am thankful that I have been blessed to carry another child. Truly, I know I am blessed.
Okay friends, it's YOUR TURN!

Hey There!!!! Thanks for the motivation! Once again..so nice to start my Mondays off with you:) Thanks for the shout out to my little ole blog.
I feel for you right now. It wasn't too long ago that I was right where you are. Being pregnant is tough. So is the right after not being pregnant when your belly is, well you know, and your mind is, well you know and am I the only one who has to make a trip to the dentist after a kiddo is born to get a cavity filled? But as you have said, when we are weak He is strong. It is when we are brought to our knees that we are refined. The "toughness" of life reveals where we are weak, where we are in need of a Savior. Praise God for that!! May we all be brought to our knees this week and be made more like our Lord and Savior.

Thanks for continued motivation! A good friend always reminded me that I wouldn't be pregnant forever! It does end!

Blessings!

I vividly remember the last days of pregnancy. I remember each morning making the bed and thinking "could it be today?" It seemed like time stood still!. What a great attitude you have and truly God's timing is perfect. Love the thought of this time next month...
Have a blessed day!

Good luck hanging in there. I think I'd be beyond restless!

Hi y'all (LOL!!)! That sweet little baby will be here so very soon - just a little more to endure!

Thanks for taking time to motivate the rest of us when you aren't feeling your best - we appreciate it!

Prayers and hugs for you today!! :)

So this was REALLY hard. I have been in a funk for so long, motivating seemed impossible. BUT after blogging, the kids and are I putting on our shoes and going out (in the rain) to do grocery shopping and cook something yummy. Thanks for "making" me try to motivate myself!

Sandee said...

I had to comment a second time. After all the kids were in bed, I came back to your blog and read the motivations of all the folks who had posted. I SOOOOO needed that. Thank you for the refreshing and so many wise women.

Ah, God's perfect timing. Sometimes we can pinpoint it, but rarely! I'm praying for your comfort and peace in these last few preggie days! You're absolutely right, that baby girl is comin'! Praises for that!
