30 weeks and counting...

We are finally in the home stretch (at least that is what I am going to keep telling myself as I brave the 100 degree plus weather, the nasty iron supplements I can't keep down, the heart burn, the numb and cramping legs, and my inability to eat ice cream or frozen yogurt due to being lactose intolerant.)  Anyway, I am getting very anxious for her to be here.  Can you tell?  I love feeling her daily, but I just wish I could feel her kicking me in the ribs.  It would mean she is head down, getting ready to come out like a good little girl versus making mommy go through major abdominal surgery.  

Since I last posted I have been incredibly busy with work and not been thinking very much of the baby.  Now that I have showers just around the corner and a nursery to decorate things are getting fun again.  Josh made my night a couple weeks ago when he bought the baby her memory book.  It is really adorable, and has some great keepsake moments for us to document in there.







One of the keepsake items you put in the book are belly pictures.  Being that I am growing every day, these are starting to get really fun.  But daddy decided he is not so pleased with his sympathy weight.  So he thought we should at least document that too.


 Crazy daddy!


Here are the "real" belly pics.  And in case you are wondering, yes I am getting tan.  Lucky for me, Madelyn loves the pool!   When ever I get too hot at night, I jump in the pool first thing in the morning.  Then, if I have no where to go that day, I just hang out in the AC in my bathing suit.  Whatever works right?

You look great!!! Enjoy it - it's over so fast! (And the c-section isn't so bad - you've got a great hubby, too, you'll do fine). Can't wait to meet her!

I totally get being anxious for her to come, I'm just about 23 weeks and I've wanted them to be here for a long time!! Make sure you're not doing too much with work, etc..gotta take it easy...the pool is such a nice place to be, I love it!! Oh and tell Josh he needs to lose the "baby" weight, it's getting out of control---ha ha ha
