jessiedupree Rough night for this one already. His sad little face with drool from teething those stinky molars says it all. Lots of tears and emotions tonight. Good thing he's got a sweet daddy that will watch his shows with him. 1d

jessiedupree Insomnia and early mornings do have their benefits. He rarely sleeps with us so it's not often I get to just drink in this sweetness. His snuggles are the best. Get ready, kid- we're all about to lose some sleep when your little sibling arrives 2d
  •   rachelrojasxo I have a 2.5 yr old boy, understand your feelings completely! I'm about 8 months with baby boy #2 :) so just enjoying all his little snuggles while I can still have it be just him :) 2d
  •   breeskipal Our little ones are 2 and 4 months old and the first 3 months I was a zombie but things are becoming a lot easier. You have double the snuggles to look forward to 2d
  •   tiffany__dawn So sweet!!!! 1d

jessiedupree With any pregnancy, any birth plan or desire for any woman, there are always "what if's", doubts, fears, the realization that none of this is really in our control. We learn to trust our bodies, our care providers, and for me, The Lord. I thought with the last time, having gone 4 weeks overdue, every day waking up realizing I still hadn't gone into labor, worrying about myself, my baby, my "plan"- ending up having a birth which was exactly the opposite of what I thought was going to happen...I thought I had learned my lesson and then some. Thought I had conquered any thoughts of really being in control, that I could take hold of the situation and bend it with my own strength and will. But it seems I didn't. With a pregnancy following a C-section where your true desire is VBAC, there are countless "what if's"....fears that creep up on you and have you in tears before you even know what's going on. This has been my battle for the last month. Going back and forth between crippling fear, then leaning back on The Lord and His truth, His promises for me. I don't really know where I'm going with this, because obviously my journey with this sweet little girl/boy isn't over, but I guess I will end with saying this: God's promises for me are that I prosper, that I am loved by Him always, that He never leaves me, that He knew me in my mother's womb, just as He knows my sweet baby and has knit him/her with such a delicate love that I could never imagine. And that when I choose not to look to the right or left, but straight forward towards my Savior, nothing shakes me. I have peace, I am empowered because I realize that I have NO power really. It's His strength in me, and that is MORE than enough. His strength, His grace, His Fatherly love, is more than enough for me and my sweet baby. It makes any outcome, whether it's the birth I've been praying for, or another c-section, or any other combination ok with me. I can't explain the value of this. It's PEACE. the kind that surpasses my understanding. The kind He promises when we lean on Him. Sorry for the novel- wanted to share my heart with you guys today :) have a good weekend 3d
  •   mrssmithly The faith you have in the face of uncertainty is amazing! Awe inspiring! Thank you 3d
  •   jessiedupree @mnmcneely WHOA!!! Incredible!! What a story, seriously! 3d
  •   mnmcneely Yes, she has an incredible story. I wish I had room to share the whole story with you! 3d
  •   tiffany__dawn Love this. Have had my own journey of unexpected birth outcomes - but seeing His sovereignty through them all. Praying for you (as I am for myself) the birth you desire and peace with however it turns out! 3d
  •   supergrl328 Amen! 2d
  •   autumnsnowe This is one of those most beautiful things I had ever read. Really touched my heart. I'll be praying for you with you're delivery. 2d
  •   jamiowlyson I think you're brave and powerful and I just want to thank you and every woman who pursues a vbac. Thank you for showing the medical community what strength and courage look like. Keep showing them that their "impossible" is a reality. You are paving the way to safer, gentler birth for women everywhere. 1d
  •   jetsetbritt I had an unplanned CSection with my first after going 3 weeks overdue- and I had another with my second because he was much larger than my first - and I was unable to have a VBAC. It isn't the end of the world. I know your fears. I know your sleepless nights of wondering if you're going to make the right decision and I will be praying for you!!! 1d

jessiedupree Why yes, those are my pajamas I'm wearing still...because I got up about an hour ago. Because my husband is awesome and let me sleep after a 5am wake up call with Wolf. So when we finally went back to sleep at 6:30, I slept for 4 whole hours straight!!! Anyone who has been pregnant knows that is basically unheard of in the last weeks of pregnancy....and on top of that, I slept 4 hours straight before waking up at 5!! PEOPLE! I feel like a new woman!! Also, yes those ARE my freshly pedicured feet you're seeing. Your welcome for not posting my usual bare, unkept scraggly toes . HAPPY SATURDAY! 1w

jessiedupree @sdupreebemis and I realized last night that we hadn't recreated this picture from our last pregnancies together yet! And seeing as she's due any day, I rushed over and we got it! Our first born's were born 11 days apart, and these two are due around 3 weeks apart! What a gift!!!! Can't wait to meet that sweet little Coraline and meet my "?" Haha!! Love love love having a sister/best friend that I can share these experiences with and then have our kids grow up together and just as close as we are! Incredible. 2w

jessiedupree Absolutely cannot handle this picture of Wolf. He must have been a little less than a year old, I'm guessing? Thank goodness for aunts like @christiedupree that capture these moments, then randomly send them to you to make your day 1000 times better!! 2w

jessiedupree If you've ever met my husband, you know that he's a different sort of fella...his love languages are not your typical run of the mill love languages....with that being said, this is my Valentine's Day gift. It's a very practical tool that win make it easier for my "pregnant self to not have to bend over to pick stuff up" when I'm cleaning. really and truly, his love language is making me laugh my butt off. Love this guy. 2w

jessiedupree Forgot to post this from yesterday. Boy oh boy does this little guy love his daddy. It's real. Who wouldn't love the one who will jump in the freezing cold creek barefoot with you so that you can dig big rocks up and kerplunk them right back into the water?? 3w

jessiedupree Every week we come home and one of us says, "this is our JOB?!" We still can't figure out how we got so lucky to be able to do what we do...and do it TOGETHER!? Just beyond grateful for life these days. And all these awesome teenagers we get to share it with. 3w
