Not sure when this was taken or by whom, but it sums up my life pretty well. On the laptop, eating Swedish Fish. (Which, after binging on all summer, do not appeal to me at all anymore.)
Pregnancy is such a magical time. It has its share of frustrating moments (I HATE being grumpy, and tired, and at this point bending over to pick anything up is quite a chore), but then, what doesn't? There's nothing like feeling my baby girl kicking and thrashing around, and having such a tangible reminder of God's goodness to me in blessing me with an amazing husband and now amazing baby. Motherhood is a gift, and while it can be a challenge to embrace that gift sometimes, it's a gift just the same.
Today I have my OB appointment. I've had lots (and I mean LOTS) of Braxton Hicks contractions the last few days, which I had with both my other girls, but some of these were painful, so I'll be asking about that today for sure.
I'm preregistered at the hospital I'll be delivering at and my mom bought her plane ticket for the week before my due date. We're (well, Kevin is really) bustin' a move trying to get a bunch of stuff done on our house before the baby comes as well. (Right now all 6 of us are sharing a bathroom. And you know what? Really not a big deal. Meanwhile we're redoing the downstairs bathroom--a rotting subfloor, rickety toilet and sink, ew.)
So yeah, pretty exciting. I cannot WAIT to meet and hold this sweet baby girl!!!! Less than 7 weeks to go!!!
