pregnancy: week 34.

can you believe i am 35 weeks pregnant?! 35 days until isaac henry's due date?!

is anybody but me tired of looking at pictures of my jumbo self instead of pictures of a handsome little dude? soon enough.

symptoms: lots of heartburn/acid reflux. no sleep. some contractions. ya know, the norm.

craved: oreos. chili.

movement: he's more rolly/pushy than kicky. but still fairly active. and he's been getting the hiccups all the time!

weight gain: i don't think you're ready for this jelly. 35 lbs.

doctor-y stuff: everything looks good. isaac henry's heartbeat was in the 130s like always. i go back in two weeks and get an exam to see if i'm dilating any. isn't it crazy that it's almost time for me to be dilating?! i'm excited and terrified.

other stuff: i read this verse this week. it's a really popular "i'm having a baby verse" but it's a good one.

behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.
blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!

he shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies at the gate.

psalm 127: 3-5

God is entrusting us with a little boy, who will hopefully grow into a man that loves Jesus.

i've been so obsessed with the thoughts of us taking care of isaac henry that i overlooked the fact that he is being given to us to help us. to help you. to be a part of the kingdom.

help us in our life. help us in our ministry. help us follow God's will. help us in battle against our enemies, which is mainly satan these days since erry-body loves us. ha.

what an amazing blessing God is giving us! He is filling our quiver. i pray that we are the parents that we need to be for our little arrow. i want to be the momma to a man of Christ.


  1. 35 weeks, 35 days, and 35 must be a new lucky number. You look absolutely beautiful! I know this lil' guy already knows how great of parents he has. So happy for ya'll and I can't wait to see pics when he gets here :)

  3. LJ you are more beautiful as the weeks go by! You would be a cute pregnant lady...=) I'm so excited for you and Bry!!!!!!! COME ON ISAAC HENRY!!!!!!!
    What a great verse! It has a special place in my heart. My dad recently shared that when Betsy was born this verse became his daily prayer for our family.
    Miss you. Phone date soon! Right now I'm busy with 20 crazy 9 year-olds who crack me up everyday and make me collapse on the couch as soon as I walk in the door. Lol!
