So today is February 21st and it marks the 36th week of this pregnancy. Why does this matter you ask? Because my two other little blessings were both born at 36 weeks! With both of them there was no sign that this would happen, my water just broke! So it makes me wonder...will the same thing happen with little Israel too? Part of me is very much wishing it will. I have entered the "pregnancy isn't always fun" stage. I don't sleep well at all, I feel like I swallowed a watermelon with legs, I seem to be starving all the time, etc. Also...I am so ready to meet my sweet little miracle baby that I have been carrying around for the past eight months. But on the other hand...I know there is a reason that pregnancy is supposed to be 40 weeks, not 36. Both Rachel and Jaxon had minor problems when they were born, due to being early, and it would be nice to not have to deal with those things again. But no matter what I think, I know that my God is bigger than anything and He is in control. I have complete faith that when God is ready for Israel to arrive, he will :-) So in the mean time...I am just wishing, waiting and anticipating.

Side note: We have our next doctors appointment on Tuesday, and we would appreciate your prayers. Thank you all for your faithfulness.
