9 days and counting!

Reality is finally setting in! I think I've been in denial most of my pregnancy that I'm actually having another baby! I'm surprised to find that I feel less prepared for this one than with our first. Now that I'm nearing the end I'm starting to feel more and more excited to meet our new daughter, more aware of how miserable pregnancy is making me, and more anxious about how I'm going to handle having 2 kids! This pregnancy has seemed to fly by so much quicker than my first. I felt very lucky to have had 2 awesome pregnancies where I haven't gotten sick. The second time around has been a little more uncomfortable than the first... a little more back pain, a little bit of heartburn, and a lot more cramping. But still, I can't complain! (My husband would probably tell you that I DO complain:)) This baby has definitely been a lot more active than Lexi was. I remember when I was pregnant with Lexi I would poke and prod at her all the time to make sure she was moving. This next little girl kicks at me so much I find myself wishing she would quit... hopefully not a sign of things to come:)

Here is me at 37 weeks...


Wish me luck!

You are one super HOT pregnant woman! BTW - I was TERRIFIED and hysterical the night before I had my 2nd. I didn't think I could love another baby as much as I loved my first, I didn't think it was fair to either one of them. And I was remembering how painful the delivery was and I was really FREAKED out! Jason had to give me a blessing to calm me down!
