40 Weeks...

I made it this far, surely I can make it a couple more days maybe weeks right? Thats what I keep telling myself at least! Although I am afraid I have been an unpleasant person to be around the last couple days and if this baby decides to stay in much longer I am not sure that is going to change much! I am going to make a really grumpy 42 weeks prego if it comes to that! Now is my chance to do what I have told oh so many others...due dates are not an exact date and to just hang in there cause God has just the right day for your little one to arrive. Not that I don't believe that its just much easier said then done! But I think God is letting me have a little test in my patience and see how much I REALLY trust Him. I want to pass that test I really do, its just not getting any easier!

Ok so I will stop complaining and being grumpy. Sorry. I really am doing well, no complaints! I have slept great felt great so besides just being done I am so thankful to have had such an easy great pregnancy! On a lighter more fun note here are some pictures of our baby girls nursery.

Here is the bassinet in our room, her bed for the first couple months.

The crib and the her bedding! =)

Changing table and all the baskets, as you can tell there are still some things that need a home.

Here We Are!

I have made it, I am 39 weeks today and not working anymore and oh am I loving it! I have done some nesting and gotten everything just right and ready for Ava to come. I am not anxious yet though. I am enjoying everyday I have and know she will come at just the right time! Everything looks great as far as my midwife says and I really feel good. (Besides feeling large, unable to move much and at times every move kinda hurts..)

I was telling Jeremy last night that I can't wait to have her and start working out hard again. I have sooo missed that! I don't think I realized how much of a difference it makes in how I felt. I have kept up exercising through my pregnancy but of course it has changed. Walking for 2-3 miles is a good workout now where running 2 miles with some weight training used to be a good workout for me. I am so ready to have my body back and give this larger version back! My goal is to run a 5k this fall, I was training for one last summer when I got pregnant and still want to do it!

I guess I will end my ramblings with that! I am going to take some pictures of the nursery and post those next! Happy Thursday!

We Made It!

We are 37 weeks tomorrow! YAY! So that being said we have made it to the point that she could be born at home and we are not in any danger of it being too early. Don't worry I am not getting my hope set on her coming early but its just nice to know that if she did we would be ok. I started thinking today, 37 weeks pregnant...37 weeks is a long time! It has been 37 weeks since my entire view of normal has changed! I don't want to say its been 37 weeks since my body has been normal, because nothing about pregnancy is abnormal to a woman's body but if you have been pregnant you know what I mean! I do look forward to the day very soon where I can bend again without something poking my ribs, and sleep on my back without feeling like I am going to loose the small amount of oxygen supply this little one has left for mommy! I can't imagine what it will be like to not feel her move though, that has become so normal to me and to think I won't feel that makes me a little sad. I can't complain though, cause I am feeling great and trying to enjoy every minute I have before she comes and my life is forever changed!

An update on little Hudson that I posted a prayer request about. He is home! They came home yesterday and he is doing much better. Still battling a cough and some hard spells with that but nothing compared to what he was. Thanks for your prayers! I know they so appreciate them!

The only thing I have really noticed that has changed alot in this last month is that I feel as though I could sleep forever! I slept 10 hours last night and am seriously considering taking a nap soon! Some people have told me they had trouble sleeping at this point, not this momma! I have trouble waking up! I have lots of energy once I am up and going but it just seems that this little one is draining!

Ok, off to finish some projects then see about that nap! =)
