A Watched Pot Never Boils!!!

Okay, so here I am, still pregnant, and yes, yesterday was the "official" due date (although my charts tell me probably a few more days yet before I hit 40 weeks, but for practical purposes we will follow the Dr.'s little round chart!).

Baby, stubborn as the rest of my children, apparently!, is STILL breech, and does not seem to want to turn head down! We are waiting for that blessed somersault in utero, and meanwhile doing EVERYTHING that has EVER been suggested to get the baby to turn! I have been lying upside down on an ironing board propped on the couch, I have crawled around the house on my hands and knees, I have done pelvic tilts and pelvic rocks, I have visited a homeopathic doctor for a dose of Pulsatilla, I have regularly visited the chiropractor---and of course, more importantly than anything else, we are praying faithfully for the Lord to turn the baby.

I am having a hard time waiting.
I'm being honest here!
I don't like to wait. I don't like not knowing the outcome! I do NOT like the possiblity of another surgery (c-section #5 was not in the plan, Lord!!).
...but He is in control.
I am living on HIS timetable.
I don't always understand what happens in my life, and certainly not WHY, but He's in charge.
Compared to the trials some of my friends are living daily, this is pretty darned insignificant.

No matter what happens, I WILL PRAISE HIM!
HE will receive all the glory!
He gave us this child, and He knew from the onset of my pregnancy how the baby will be born.
I guess I will just have to wait and see!

Thanks to all who are joining us in prayers of faith. I so deeply appreciate your support and encouragement!

Look for more updates soon! :)

Sweetie, still praying for you and for your tiny little blessing to turn.
Soon you will be introducing your little one to the rest of us.
