31 weeks...

I haven't blogged in while because well to be honest, I haven't had the energy to do much of anything let alone think about what to blog about. We made it to the 10 week countdown! I will be 31 weeks tomorrows. In some ways I can't believe I am this close to holding our little girl and in other ways I feel like there is no way I can go 10 more weeks in this state! I have really enjoyed being pregnant, I really have. Just lately I have been sooo tired. I wake up thinking about a nap and all day just want to sit down. I have been feeling kinda faint at times and have kinda low blood pressure, which I am not going to complain about! But it has made it hard to get oxygen sometimes, besides that I really have no complaints. I can't wait to meet our little girl and she moves so much and I love it! I live for the moments when I can watch my stomach move around! She has found my ribs though and loves to kinds wedge her foot under them, kinda hurts at times but I can normally kinda move her.

I picked out baby bedding for the nursery and am slowly but surely getting the motivation to start nesting. I thought this started earlier and by this point I would be all ready for her but here we are a couple months away and yeah I have done no nesting. I am just too tired right now! But I am making some progress just gotta pace myself and do it. I am excited to get the nursery ready and have our house ready for this little girl! Although I think at this point anything we do on the nursery is for us not for her, she won't really can this early and will be in our room for a while anyway. But I have to go with the norm and have that perfect nursery for our first child, I mean really who am I kidding that I think if will have a nursery for any of our other kids if I can't even do it for our first child!

I am going to register this week, so if any of my blogger friends have advice on must have items to put on it let me know! Now off to take a nap!

Maternity Pictures

So a dear friend of mine took some maternity pictures of me the other night, I didn't really want to do traditional maternity pictures but what Beth did was perfect! Cause I did want to document this time in my life. She was so fun and creative and I am so impressed with her work and proud of her! So go take a peak...

The Month of Love is Here!

Its February, I was writing in my journal this morning about how much I love this month! Not just cause it happens to be my birthday month! =) But I love valenties day and always have, I love that spring is starting to warm the air and I just love the month. Not sure all the reasons actually I just do. I will be 24 on the 11th and Jeremy will be 25 on the 17th, I am getting old!

I had a Doctor's apt this morning and left so thankful for my Dr. As many of you have heard me blog about it, it was a hard process to lay down my desire for a home birth and meet in the middle with what Jeremy was comfortable with. Which brought us to the hospital, but I chose a Dr. who I knew would understand and respect where I was coming from but who also was excellent at what he does. I could not be happier. Don't get me wrong, I still have days where I get sad thinking I won't have that amazing perfect home birth this time. But I know God will honor me trying to honor my husband and his wishes and most days I could not be happier about it. My Dr. is a Godly man who is so wise yet has a fun sense of humor. Jeremy went with me today to meet him and really liked him which I was so glad about. I felt the apt today feeling kinda scolded, because I am not getting enough calories and he doesn't like that. So my goal between now and when I got back is to add some GOOD calories to my daily diet and hopefully I will feel better doing that too.

I am 27 weeks and 4 days! On Thursday I start my 3rd trimester, amazing! I am measuring 30 which 2 either side of your weeks is normal and he made a comment today about getting a good start of that 10 pound baby I am going to have! I am all for a big healthy baby but please not 10 pounds! She still does not have a name...we will see how long this lasts. There is a good chance she will not have a name till she is born! Ok, so that's all that's new and exciting these days. Now off to nap favorite time of the day (besides bed time)!
