Pregnant

My pregnancies, in particular:
Have. Been. WONDERFUL! I have nothing to complain about with my two previous pregnancies, nor this one. (Except a slight case of heart burn that is easily solved with a little bit of OTC meds.)

My favorite parts of pregnancy:
1. telling people we are expecting
2. starting to show
3. feeling the baby 1st move
4. feeling the baby really start to move and holding my hand on my tummy waiting for him/her to kick or punch my hand
5. seeing the baby on the ultrasound
6. feeling the baby's hickups
7. getting close to my due date and not knowing when they baby will decide to make his/her grand entrance into this world (late...as usual, or at least that's what I hope for!)

One thing that is different from this pregnancy than my other two is that I get to share our excitement of the upcoming baby with Blake and Makenna. Blake is completely, 100% convinced the baby is a boy. If we say "what if it is a girl?" he will say "it isn't mommy. It is a boy and he is going to sleep in my bedroom in the new house." Good thing he's got this whole life-thing planned out.
Makenna is adorable with the idea of a baby. If I ask her where the baby is, she will lift up her shirt and say "baby". Then I ask her again where mommy's baby is and she will point to my stomach and again say "baby".
I am now 24 weeks and will get to see what this little one that is so active is...in 4 short months! (probably closer to 4 1/2 months, as Blake was 11 days late and Makenna was 6 days late)
This is a picture of me pregnant with Makenna on her due date:

CRazY! I know. I look like a torpedo. No wonder I've got such lovely stretch marks. Oh-the joys of being a mommy!

  1. I had your blog address bookmarked wrong, so I've been seeing 'The pop sneezed post' from forever ago. I enjoyed catching up on you guys through your last blog posts and can't believe you'll have another new baby when we're home in July for Natilee's wedding!
