38 Weeks


I have hit 38 weeks. It feels like 50 weeks.

I am slow. I am tired. I am a walking big belly. I am the poster-child for the song "Fat-Bottomed Girls", and no, I do not make the rockin' world go round.

For the first time ever in pregnancy, my feet and calves are swelling. Arg.

Getting off the couch at night is a comedy feat in itself. If you need a good giggle just come over about 10 at night and watch me attempt to get off our couch.

Even though all of this makes me grumpy and has been hard, I am grateful to have had a healthy pregnancy. Bean will be here soon enough. Hopefully soon enough I will be not large. We will increase our family and the love within. I really do recognize how blessed I am.

In attempt to improve my attitude I had my sister snap some prego pictures of me and Bean. Enjoy, they will be the last pregnancy ones. I have a really hard time documenting the last bloated stage of pregnancy...some things should be better kept unphotographed...hahahaha.

Here is to 38 weeks and only 1 week to go...




Hey did you also notice I got a new haircut???




Have a great Wednesday everyone! Run a lap for me...how how I miss being able to run!

great pics and i love your hair-cut...just got mine cut and colored yesterday, ha-ha. wow, your pregnancy has flown by...really, i know it seems like it's been super long, but it has flown by. with running a lap...i plan on trying out running again when it warms up even though i've never been a good runner. i might just stick with the elliptical, but i think running would be a better way to get in shape and lose a few pounds. hope the rest of your pregnancy is bearable and before you know it you'll have your little baby :-)

As always girl, you are beautiful when preggers, and way more in shape than some of us while pregnant. I love the new hair! Can't wait to see the new one. For online nick names think Dr. Seuss...Thing 1, 2, 3, 4, :)

I'm 34 weeks and GIANT! My belly is like a torpedo. You look absolutely gorgeous! Let's just say that my maternity shirts are getting too small ;)

JasonDebbie said...

You look awesome! You look nowhere NEAR gross and bloated. For that you can look at my photo album, I seriously looked like a mountain giant. :) I'm excited for you!

Melissa Bo said...

You look great! Awesome photos!

look forward to hearing the news about your new arrival!

Melanie said...

What? You can't run? ha ha ha...just kidding...NOT FUNNY, I know.

#4 was hard for me. It was the best "mentally" for me (yeah, I was medicated) but being "mentally healthy" for me meant giving up my nazi style pregnancy workouts. I was not as toned and fit as I was in previous pregnancies.

But...having said that, I know you are just as "crazy" as I am. You will lose the weight. :)
