She isn't ready, but Mommy is....

Hello my blogging friends,

Sorry about not blogging... I have been so busy with so much that I don't even know where to start. From reading my last post I was still in Missouri and we had just found out of my placenta problem and my hubby deploying so let me start from there:

Since the dr's in Missouri were telling me I had Placenta Previa and then they were thinking baby girl had IUGR (when baby isn't measuring correctly) my hubby and I decided since he had to deploy that I would move to Texas to be with my mother and family. We were so blessed to have my mom, step dad, 2 uncles, and my aunt come and get me and my 2 dogs and also help us clean our home so that we could turn it back into the military since I wouldn't go back to Missouri. The military was giving us a hard time with alot of different things to the point that my hubby had to just tell us to go ahead and leave and that we would see each other in a year :( WOW talk about the hardest "see you later" cause we don't say "goodbye." What we were trying to do was see him "off" to his next destination but I had to leave him all alone in out house. It was so so sad that I cried for days and still do :(

He was able to come to Texas to see me and his 2 boys before he had to depart so that was exciting :) He was able to go to my first appointment at the new hospital I am going to here in Texas so that was nice. He was only able to stay for a week and then I saw him fly away :( Being pregnant and having my husband deploy is so hard that I don't wish this on anyone! He has been deployed for 3 months now and we will see each other in July for 2 weeks.

About baby girl~Elanie~well she has not made her appearance YET! From all the things they were telling me in Missouri I no longer have Placenta Previa *Praise God* and she does not have IUGR *Praise God*. I am 39 weeks and 6 days today and I am READY! She needs to come on out...but she doesn't want to! I have been seeing some really good dr's and have found the one! He is a resident but its all good. He is so understanding and always asks about how my hubby is doing. Hubby won't be able to be here for the delivery but it's okay cause he will come a few weeks later :)

We can't wait to meet our precious little one!

We had an awesome baby shower and OMG I got so much stuff that living here at my mothers house is the hardest because there is hardly no room :(

I have some prayer requests:

*that Elanie will come on her own and that I will not have to get induced

*that my delivery will go smooth :)

*that my hubby will keep walking with the Lord and for protection

Thank you everyone that care for us so much :)

We love you and can't wait to post a pic of our precious little one!!!

In Christ,

Melanie
