38 weeks and Counting

38 1/2 weeks

James thought this was a pretty great picture since my stomach looks ginormous

So here we are at the end of my pregnancy. Once again I am having some heartburn induced insomnia. I decided today that I am pretty sure this baby is never going to come out... I said that to James and he responded with " well it can't stay in there forever." It was a nice reminder. Here is the problem. Bella was 15 day early and Luke was 11 so I have been a little spoiled. I have been expecting this one to come early too but who knows, its not unheard of for a women to go a week or 2 over due. Oh the agony! The other problem is that I have been having good contractions for about a week. They will start and then stop, they seem to be really active around dinner time. This makes life a little uncomfortable since they are strong enough to make it hard to focus let alone take care of two little tornadoes and prepare a meal. James has been super awesome. Can I just say I love that man! He works so hard for us and sacrifices so much to be a good dad and husband. He was suppose to go out of town last week and made a last minute decision to work remotely from home (which is harder on him and his clients weren't super happy either). It was such a blessing because for some reason the children were especially challenging this week. I also got a migraine one of the days and am not sure what I would have done without him. Three Cheers for good Husbands!

First of all you are NOT ginormous!! And you are especially tiny everywhere else!

I can't wait to have these babies out!! I made the same comment to John the other day..."What if she never comes out or what if she's too big to come out!" ha ha...I guess she'll come out one way or the other.

We are so excited for you guys and I'm so anxious to get a call saying your baby has arrived!
