Lovin' This Baby Bump!!!





38 weeks! Wow! It seems like it's gone by so fast! I swear it was yesterday Drew and I found out we were pregnant and now our baby is almost here!!! My mid-wife says to pack our hospital bags because she's not sure I'll make it to my next appointment... But I am NOT falling for that! I have seen and heard way too many pregnant women getting their hopes up for an early or, at least on-time delivery only to be completely frustrated and let down when they go past their due date... NOT THIS LADY!!!

At the very beginning of this pregnancy my MIL told me to go ahead and mentally change my due date to a week or two after the Dr.'s say that way I'm not so psychotically stir-crazy at the end... so I am convincing myself that baby will not be here until around New Years. And really I'm fine with that. I'd hate to make people work on their Christmas holidays... poor planning on our side I guess but hey, who knew it'd only take like 2 days to get pregnant?!?

So, many blessings and so much to look forward to right now! I'm still waiting for the "end of pregnancy misery" to set in... maybe I'm not really 38 weeks...? I don't feel miserable at all... just a little moody... and VERY thirsty all the time... what a strange pregnant lady I turned out to be... very lucky. very very lucky. I wonder if the luck will translate into an easy L&D and a perfectly blissful baby??? That's probably asking WAY too much for one gal. Either way, I am so grateful for these past few months and how well my body has adjusted to carrying this little person around!!!

Let's enjoy a little prego pic montage...




I was about 3 weeks pregnant in this one and had NO idea!!!

















Just hitting 12 weeks!!!

















The 20 week mark came during our Beach Trip!!!


















The Womens 5K was right at the 24 week mark!!!















26 weeks...getting bumpy!!!



















Halloween brought with it the 32 week mark... notice my chins starting to multiply???













6 weeks later...





25 extra lbs does not do good things for me but it is so worth it!!!

the answer to the puzzle is ...Birds of a feather flock together...

Depending on how your L&D goes I might have to say that you are made for pregnancy! You are so cute! I hope I look that good down the road....... and no.... no news yet....

ah, you are finally in the gigantically pregnant stage. I thought you would keep that little baby bump the whole time. We can't wait for our new little nephew/cousin to arrive.

25 extra pounds DOES do good things for you!!!! You look AWESOME! You and pregnancy get along SO well! I was as big as a house, I swear. I will email you a pic if you want to feel REALLY good about yourself. I was laugh out loud huge. HA! You look great! Can't wait to hear all about him :):):)

congrats a girl! such an easy enjoyable pregnancy you are a very fortunate girl! I'm sure your positive outlook on life had something to do with it though :) Still can't wait to see your nursery pics, I would love to see what creative ideas you came up with for your little one! Good luck and god bless! And if your hair starts falling out when the baby is 3 months, don't worry, completly normal and it will thicken up again (that part freaked me out) :)
