I am CRACKING up at all of your stories of pregnancy weight. I LOVE IT! Thanks so much for sharing. I love that I can ask these crazy questions and ya'll will just come forward with all kinds of great information! Thanks, also, for level setting me. I've been thinking all this time "well - I'll just lose 25 pounds before I ever leave the hospital." In fact - I delight on telling Scott as we watch "Biggest Loser" - "I'm going to drop more weight than that person in one day!" ha ha ha ! So maybe I won't. I worry a little about my weight but I would gain 200 lbs and shave my head bald to get my sweet Harper ANY DAY!
I am hosting bunco on Thursday night and the theme is PJ's night! I'm making some yummy breakfast foods and everyone is going to wear comfy clothes or PJ's. I desperately need some new pajamas and I'd like to have at least one nice pair to take to the hospital (even though I've been warned I might not want to wear them). Aren't these cute? I went looking at lunch and I think I found some that I might go back and get after work (AND I HAVE A COUPON!) :-)
So - this is on my mind. I got an e-mail yesterday from someone who had e-mailed me a while ago (by the way - so many of you e-mail me with your stories and I LOVE EVERY e-mail I get - please keep them coming!) to share with me her infertility and she wanted to tell me that after two years of trying - she is pregnant. She asked me if I would share with her the girls I am praying for so she can pray too. I am sooooooo burdened for all of you who are trying and I try to pray for each of you by name and God has put so many of you on my heart - but I really need to make a prayer list and I'd like to be able to share it with anyone who is willing to pray. I know without a doubt in my mind that I am having Harper because of the prayers of SO MANY for us!
So if you are waiting for a baby OR a husband - and you don't mind leaving your name in the comments (and what you are waiting on) - I will make two lists and find a way to post them so any of you who are blessed with a family may have on your heart to pray for these women - you can pray over their names. If you don't want to put it in the comments - you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org - just put "prayer list" in the subject.
And I'm going to update the lists with "praise" as the answers come in and keep you updated!
