Prayer for the End of Pregnancy
This is not a prayer to end the pregnancy--I still have at least 6 weeks to go, but this is a prayer to help me survive the weeks to come.
Please let me not gain any more weight from this point on (who am I kidding?) Okay, just please don't let me weigh more than Sam.
Please bless me to find a comfortable sleep position that doesn't strain my back.
Please help me to not slit my wrists from wearing the same two outfits over and over and over and over...
Please Please Please bless that this house project will be completely done before Jr arrives.
Please forgive me for swearing at my kids all day every day.
Please forgive me for cursing my husband for putting back an empty container of cookies into the pantry. (You should never taunt a hungry pregnant woman.)
Please make it so there is no reason for me to pick up anything off the floor, or get up off the floor for any reason.
Please forgive me for sneaking home from church and napping the second two hours while the kids and husband gain spiritual guidance.
Forgive me for getting a pedicure and completely forgetting to shave my legs...when it hadn't just been a few days.
Bless me to drink more water and less diet coke.
Please, help me to find a name for this child.
Finally, bless me to develop the nesting instinct so I can find the will to dig out the baby clothes, breast pump, and crib bedding.
