Walking Weekend

I am not sure I have ever walked this much in my lifetime. Well maybe accumulative... but not all in a row. We walked Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. At least 3-4 hours each day. Tired Mama here but we will do what we can to get this babe a movin'!

A new fro-yo place opened in our church neighborhood. It is delish and was free for one night. Score!

 
Josh is officially done student teaching!! It is such a fun time - I am so proud of him. He had a wonderful experience and we just thank Jesus for that! :) The kids loved him. There are a FEW of the cute cards he got. So fun! Gotta love 8th graders... the girls used quite a bit of glitter, haha!
 
 
Here is Jude and I at 38 weeks swingin' away. Come on baby boy.... come out and play!

I want to remember this time as the weather has been amazing here in the great state of MN! I am thinking the months were so jumbled this year - just hoping April will still be SPRING :) :) 

Those are my jumbled thoughts today as I am waiting in anticipation for Jude... I just have to remember worst case scenerio is that he will be here in 3 weeks (if I have to be induced) so I am just trying to "hang tight".... easier SAID than DONE. :)

Yes easier said than done indeed! i remember everyone telling me to be patient and "he'll be here soon enough!" but soon enough is not good enough! lol I totally hear ya :) Praying baby jude comes sooner rather than later friend.

WOw, that is a lot of walking, Mama! Are you sore? I remember taking our dogs to the dog park at about 38 weeks and I ended up walking a lot more than planned and had SO much pain in my pelvic area for days. I was scared I was going to go into labor and wouldn't be able to push, haha!
3 weeks is so soon, but hopefully he will come on his own, even sooner! :)

oh girl! I totally feel your pain about now! I walked so much for several weekends before Elyse was born...not to be Debbie Downer, but I finally decided that most babies are going to come whenever they finally decide to arrive, regardless of what momma wants!

We love Cherry Berry...almost even more so than Orange Leaf!

Oh Ria I can only imagine how anxious you are! The walking can't hurt! Hoping he comes soon!:)

I walked 3 miles a day for the last few weeks with Easton. And about the same with Linc! KEEP it up! It does good---even if it doesn't start your labor! Excited for you! I won't say "enjoy this moment" because I KNOW exactly how you feel and enjoying this moment isn't what you want to hear or feel. COME ON BABY JUDE! :)

Jonna said...

I hope baby Jude comes SOON!!! Maybe then I can stop having these crazy dreams that I miss his birth! :) Hang in there sissy!! God will give you exactly what you need and knows when this little judester will make his grand entrance!! LOVE YA!! XOXO

That is a lot of walking, good for you! As most people told me and I didn't want to believe it (though it came true for me), most first babies come late. MOST, not ALL. Jude will be here SOONER than 3 weeks, I'm praying for you! I'm telling you, lots of foot rubs, pedicures & fresh fruit :) Good luck Ria!!
