We’re a week or two out from baby number eight. So I figured this would be a good time to catch you new folks up on the previous installments of Hey, Check it Out: I Had a Baby . . .

Birth Story #7: In Which THAT Is More Like it

Stay turned for installment number eight . . . .
And, if you would allow me, I’d love to pray for your intentions during my labor. 
I wrote all about it here: 

A Pregnant Lady’s Thoughts on Suffering

Even after going though it as many times as I have, I’m still apprehensive about going into labor. I’ve done it before, so I know it’s going to hurt. I just can’t remember how much
it’s going to hurt, which is an odd feeling. Despite that, I still
really am looking forward to it, but now it’s for three reasons: a) to
get a baby, b) to not be pregnant anymore, and c) to be able to offer my
suffering for my intentions and yours.

So, if I can pray for you during
this labor, please leave a comment. It can be as specific or vague as
you’d like, God will know. You’re also welcome to email me at
catholicallyear@gmail.com if you prefer. And if you haven’t entered the baby pool, leave a comment over there too! Someone is going to win some great prizes, it might as well be you.

And now I’ll be getting back to regular posts, that are NOT all about how I’m going to have a baby soon. But, don’t worry, I’ll let you know when it happens. Probably via Facebook first, so if you haven’t liked the Catholic All Year Facebook page yet, now’s as good a time as any. Amirite?
