I was leaving for work this morning and couldn't believe my eyes!!! A beautiful rainbow appeared right over our neighborhood!!! In December! I took it as a positive sign from God and it really put me in a good mood for the rest of my drive in to work.

Speaking of signs, I am experiencing what I would describe as the start of some type of contractions. Unfortunately, I think they are going to be the kind that just stick around for awhile just to annoy me and get my hopes up. I have been having constant Braxton Hicks for the past two nights, certainly the most action I have felt yet. Some of them even hurt pretty bad, but nevertheless, sporadic and not time able. I even called the doctor tonight to ask her about it. I felt extremely silly doing so but I just wanted to make sure that the cramping I was feeling wasn't a sign that something was wrong with the baby. She assured me that it was not real labor but just my body gearing up for the main event. I am still sitting here on my couch with my bump all balled up like a rock and cramped but no other signs to speak of. I had my internal on Monday and my progress report was pathetic! Not even dilated, 25% effaced, and the baby hasn't dropped at all. This is going to be a long two weeks.


  1. That rainbow is a great sign Karen!

    Enjoy this joy filled season! ~Melissa :)

  2. I can't believe your due so soon. Before you know it you'll be writing posts about your precious little girl!!

  3. Wow Karen,
    It is almost time! Hard to believe how fast the time has gone. So excited for you!

  4. Love rainbows! Such a great reminder from God!

    *I tried to find your email on your page, but had no luck! I just wanted to say I am so sorry if my last comment was too 'honest' about inducing labor. I saw it was gone, and I am so embarrassed now! I hope that didn't come across in the wrong way! Best of luck girl!

  5. It's almost time - how exciting!
