At A Snail's Pace

Well my friends there is some little person who is dying to meet me, but she wants to drop in a little too soon.
That's right, Lil Miss Thomas has decided that she wants to start her journey into our lives right now, however at 35 weeks we're not quite ready for her yet.

I started what I swore was horrible back labor this weekend and yesterday while in church my contractions started strongly and consistently. Later yesterday afternoon we figured it may be a good idea just to check and see if it was truly contractions or Braxton Hicks, problem was that I was an hour and a half away from home visiting my parents. On the way back they subsided a bit and I thought well I'll just tough it out a bit until tomorrow and just go see my OB but after talking to a few older wiser women I heeded the advice and drug my family to the labor and delivery ward thinking this is gonna be a qiuck in and out visit.
In and out yes, quick visit no. Turns out contractions were real and I've dialated almost 3 cm. Baby girl is so active and fiesty that my uterus and belly are just soooo sensitive and tender to her slightest movement.
Needless to say, we all decided that it would be best to stop the contractions, stay off my feet, monitor fetal movements and contractions until I am in my 37th week.
So for the next couple weeks I will have to move at a snails pace around here. I have so much to do but I am sure that God will give me the wisdom and grace to do it. Until next time, Stay blessed and Encouraged!
