35 weeks!

Sorry so long between updates. I am now 35 weeks. I am doing pretty good for the most part considering my stage in this pregnancy. I have been struggling with sleep some and that affects me in every way but I have slept good the past two nights to that helps TONS!!!

Harlie is moving around like crazy and at lunch today she kicked or punched or something so hard that it made me jump and then laugh wondering what in the world she is doing in there. She is a busy mover for sure but hasn't done that to me before until now. Maybe she wants OUT!

We had my brother-in-law's and now SIL's wedding was on March 19th and it went GREAT!! My girls were the flower girls and my husband was the best man. Then on Sunday the 20th we had my parents 50th wedding anniversary party and that turned out wonderful. We had so many people show up to visit with my parents. Mostly people that they don't see on a regular basis but have been friends with for many years.

My youngest daughter, Lizzie, turns FOUR this coming Friday, April 1st. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!! She is SO EXCITED!!! She grins from ear to ear whenever you mention it to her.

So lots of stuff going on in our world and still even more exciting things to come.

I leave you with a family picture of us at the wedding.

Belly pics. 33 weeks!!!!

Finally, some updated belly pics. A couple of bare belly pics too. 33 weeks along. 7 weeksish left to go. Can't believe it. I am doing really well. Feeling great for the most part except for the usual pregnancy uncomfortableness.

I am really enjoying being pregnant and taking it all in. Feeling a lot of emotion b/c this is it for me. My last pregnancy. My last child. So exciting and a little sad at the same time. It makes me tear up and smile at the same time when I think about it. I feel great about the fact of having three children. This was the decision J and I made before we were married and we both agreed with it and we still feel strong about our decision. We feel so blessed to be given the gift of having our own children so easily especially. So with that being said here is to the next 7 weeks until we meet our sweet baby girl, Harlie.

7 1/2 weeks left. THAT'S IT!!!

The days are VERY QUICKLY going by. We still have a lot to get done but for some reason I am not worried about it. I know it will get done and if not then after she comes it will get done. Just trying to enjoy my last few weeks of being pregnant ever and the last few weeks of having just Chloe and Lizzie in our life.

We have a BIG weekend coming up next weekend with my BIL and future SIL getting married this is the husbands middle brother. Both girls are flower girls and then J is a best man along with the other younger brother. So we have events Friday night with rehearsal and dinner then hair done and pictures and wedding and reception on Saturday. Sunday we will be celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Talk about impressive!! There actual 50th anniversary is on April 7th. Just getting this party in a few weeks early. Looking forward to a lot of friends and family coming out to visit with them.

I still have not taken any pictures of my belly recently. I am having camera issues and it is not working. I can borrow my Mom's but have to remember to get it when I see her. I hope to post something soon though so you can all see my growing belly. I am so mesmerized by pregnant bellies, even my own. I just don't see how they stretch out that much and to think there is a small human in there. BLOWS MY MIND!

9 weeks AND COUNTING!!!

I swear I will post a picture soon. I just have not gotten around to taking one recently. I will though. I do think pregnant bellies are just the coolest things so I need to get to documenting mine regularly, especially these last few weeks when it really grows.

I am hanging in there and growing by the day. I do feel well for the most part and I have another good pregnancy like I have had with the last two but there is no denying that you just get SO UNCOMFORTABLE as time goes on. It is all worth it but it is still uncomfortable. I do enjoy all of the moving around and kicking she is doing. That is just priceless!!!

I have my 32 week check up next Tuesday then I will go every 2 weeks for 2 times then it will be weekly appointments. WHOA!!!! It really is getting close. I need to accept it. As much as I want her to be here a little part of me wishes time would slow down. Still so much to do with work and getting her room ready and big family events coming up like my BIL's wedding and my parents 50th wedding anniversary and Lizzie's 4th birthday. Now those things will make the month of March fly by.

ok, the next time I post will be a picture of my pregnant and growing belly!
