Well friends we've nearly made it to full-term. Actually, that will be tomorrow. I'm excited, but at the same time sad knowing that this adventure of pregnancy is nearly over. Then again, I'll feel happier when I can sleep on my stomach, not have to literally roll out of the bed in the morning, and have a baby to hold:) I know babies are much easier to care for while they are inside of you than they are outside of you, but I have some super cute clothes I'd like to try on this little one. I haven't been keeping up with my pregnancy journal/Dear Baby Harris writings, so I figured I needed to keep up with my blog.
In work news, I talked to my office manager about my concerns like not having anything to do after the baby comes since I've given everything to the new girl. She agreed that it would be ok for me to take back my old responsibilities as soon as I'm feeling up to it. My boss gave me a laptop so I could work from home, which I'm super excited about. I'd like to work from home long-term, but we'll just have to see how it goes. I know if the baby is super fussy then it would make working from home more difficult. I'm believing that God will work a miracle and provide a way for me to be a stay-at-home-mom.
Our wonderful friends in Portland had their official church launch last Sunday and I so wish Josh and I could have been there. Lately I've been thinking more and more about moving to Portland. Things at work had been difficult, things at Josh's work had been difficult, and it seems like it would be nice to start over in a new place. I'm sure our parents would have a very hard time with us moving away, but I want to be in the center of God's will and if He says go then we shall go. I don't know if it's because of the launch or what, but Portland has been on my heart lately and my friends who are there have been on my heart. I haven't said much to Josh about it. I figure if it's the time for us to go God will reveal that to him since he is the priest of our home and God will confirm it with me. I know Josh would go in a heartbeat. He's not super close with his family, so that wouldn't be an issue for him. The issue would be him having a job there. I, on the other hand, am very close with my parents and I would miss them very much. The rest of my family is in Texas, so we don't see them often anyway. My dad travels to Portland quite a bit, so I'm sure I'd still get to see him a few times a year. I would hate for our baby to not know his grandparents though. I always pictured him as loving them and knowing them really well. I know God has all things under control, regardless of my crazy emotions.
In other news, Josh went for his sleep test and the results were inconclusive. He has to go back. They did figure out he has sleep apnea, but they were unable to get the settings for the machine since he didn't sleep long enough. So, I have to endure one more night without my husband. I'm hoping it's fairly soon so I don't have to worry about going into labor:) According to the doctor I'm not dilated yet. I was secretly hoping that I would be showing some sign of labor, but no. The girl I work with says she has a feeling that I'm going to have to be induced. I told her to take that back right now! I'll keep you updated with my progress.
