I am now 37 weeks pregnant... and feeling every bit of it! Everyone keeps asking, "Are you ready??" and my answer is, "Physically, yes... emotionally, no." Ha! I am feeling pretty good overall. I am aching and it's hard to breath but the main thing is braxton hicks contractions. I have them a LOT! I did with Colin too and the doctor isn't worried, but they are just uncomfortable. I am having a hard time sleeping, but I guess I need to get used to that again!
I am trying hard not to imagine what it's going to be like with 2 kids... that tends to overwhelm me! I am also trying not to think about the fact that Colin won't be our only child anymore - that's what I mean by emotionally NOT ready! I can cry just thinking about the time I won't be able to devote just to Colin. So we won't talk about it, mmkay.
Here I am at 36 weeks:
I have actually gained about 10 pounds LESS this time around at this point. I attribute that to chasing around a toddler! =)
We are VERY excited to welcome our daughter. I have embraced the pink and am looking forward to having a little girl! I think Colin is going to be an awesome big brother. He talks about Addison a lot and likes to pat my belly.
I am almost finished with the nursery and (just like with Colin's room) I love to just hang out in there. As soon as I figure out where to hang a couple frames I will post pictures. I also realized that I never posted about the shower I had in Charlotte!
This is a picture of me with family and my BFF, Marsha, before the shower started:
I really don't have any pictures of the actual shower... but here is Colin sneaking some blueberries =)
Addison got lots of great things! And, as always, it was so nice to see everyone!
A week ago my girlfriends here took me out to dinner and dessert and had a small shower for me too!
It is a phone picture, but it's all I have right now. I love hanging out with these girls! And am so so blessed I have met them here! It is always so much fun when we go out!
Addison is already so loved. We are now just waiting to meet her!
