6 Months!!! WOW!!!

Well I have officially made it to the 6 month mark! For some reason before I was pregnant 6 month pregnant people seemed REALLY pregnant to me, so I guess I am officially REALLY pregnant now! AND I LOVE IT!!! It is CRAZY how time is flying by and is crazy to think that she is going to be here in 3.5 months, SERIOUSLY??? It still does not feel real and I am beginning to wonder when it will?? I still LOVE being pregnant and actually am seeming to REALLY love it lately!
Well I will recap on the last month for your enjoyment and my journal purposes but first the updated BELLY SHOTS!!! And yes, you get my WHOLE body this time, I am getting more comfortable with the fact that... yes pregnancy makes my face fat and looks like I am dead or tired or something, and yes SHE IS WORTH IT!!!



Yes, I know you need all angles!!! And yes, I am getting the beloved line down the belly, I was hoping to avoid that but nope! I still love it!
Ok so I was looking at pictures of people 9 months pregnant and can not believe what this belly is going to become in the next 3.5 months.... YIKES!!! But I can't wait and I suppose it makes since, she is about 2 lbs. now and we are anticipating her to be around 8 lbs. so yeah.... I am going to get WAY BIGGER!!!
Ok so this last month has been a pretty fun one for us! I have really liked the 5-6 month spurt! I have energy again, I LOVE FOOD (especially chocolate), and I love working out, I am feeling her move a whole lot more these days, especially the past 2 days, daddy has felt her a bunch, I can see my belly move now which is exciting to me, people can now tell I am pregnant and ask me how far along I am, random people now touch my belly (which can be kinda weird), her movements feel more like pokes and stuff like that rather than a random movement, and I can tell she is getting bigger and it makes me SO HAPPY!!! What else have I loved about this month??? O' we are starting home improvements to prepare for her, we picked out and got the paint color for her room, her crib and changing table have arrived, and I am going to register this coming up weekend!!! Can you tell I am excited??? I still feel like I have SO MUCH to do to prepare my home and myself for her but I know how I am and I KNOW that it will get done if it means pulling all nighters to do it!
I am still working 5 days a week and am not feeling that it is hurting the service I am giving to my tables but I do notice how much more tired I am at the end of a shift and boy do my feet and back hurt! But I have to keep trucking along till I have her so we will make it work. She IS helping me get bigger tips which is SO NICE!! I think I am going to buy a fake belly after I have her to work the system and keep getting these sympathy tips, it is NICE!!! Plus my tables are way less demanding on me and are more understanding, I really dig this pregnancy thing!
Ok well I think that is it for the most part! Yeah for finally being REALLY PREGNANT!!!

Yeah for being "really pregnant"!

The Fien Family said...

I retained water EVERYWHERE, so feel lucky that it hasn't happened to you yet...but like you said, it is TRULY worth it. You will love being a mommy!

Todd + Emily said...

You look BOMB!!! I love the prego shots your little girl is making you the perfect prego lady :)

Emily said...

You are such a cutie! I love the pictures! I am happy you are enjoying being preg. and I love the idea of decorating too!

Amanda said...

You crack me up...miss 'really prego' now. But you look dead sexy with that cute belly of yours. You are doing great! I knew you would love being prego...even with the silly line. It happens to me too.

Jessica said...

i think everyone gets "the line" don't they?? anyway, it goes away fairly quick, and i know tanning will make it stay longer, well atleast that's what my dr told me last time...so ya. anyway, you look GREAT! i'm proud of you for getting over your face fear-cuz noone else see's it but you so it's nice to not have headless sarah pictures anymore. you brought up a great point when you said you have 3.5 months to go, your belly will get so much rounder, but the rounder the better. it's so fun to lug that thing around and just always have your hands on it waiting for the next bumbp :) i used to sit hours just staring at my stomach because i wanted to see it move and everytime i looked away i missed it. so i couldn't help. i'd lay on the couch LISTEN to tv and just watch that baby in there. so fun. i' glad you are enjoying pregnancy, it looks good on you!

Heather said...

Sarah, you are so cute prego! I love the updates and totally know how you feel about getting everything done, you'll be really glad you did later! :)

Jessica said...

thanks for the compliment! i can't wait to look like you do, it's so fun!!! are you still craving glazed doughnuts? i've seemed to get over that one, escaping with only eating one! now this baby likes things like big homestyle cooked dinners and breakfasts so i have to watch portion control. so fun :) yes we are letting the sex surprise us again, although it's already killnig us both, josh thinks it's a girl and i think it's a boy so far :)

The Woot-en Clan said...

Sarah you look great! I am glad you posted more pictures and we can all see your cute face in them.

The Picketts said...

You look FAB! I love that cute little baby belly of yours! I had the "line" with Gracie (only on the bottom half) and NO line with this baby! However, the two of them stretch me out so much - I DO have the stretch marks to prove it (I am 33 weeks now and measuring 39!!!! How sick is that?!)
I'm so glad your pregnancy is going well and that Kip has been able to feel baby Brooke. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that part of being prego! I can't wait to see pics of your nursery. I'm sure it'll be SO darling!
I miss you lots and hope you're doing well! I think of you often! :o)

The Perry Family said...

6 months feels like a mile marker when you're pregnant. I can't believe you're 6 months already. You look cute, you're pregnant. I can't stand when I get huge when I get prego, but I like seeing other pregnant people...they're beautiful!

The Little family said...

Sarah you look great and so HAPPY!! I'm so glad everything is coming together for lil Brooke's nursery:) I'm so excited for you guys!!

Philip and Melissa said...

you hot baby mama!!! i'm glad you've decided to include your face in the photos because you are darling!!!!! I'm so glad to be having this fun adventure right along side you!!!!!

Anderson Family said...

You look great!! She is going to be here so soon, yeah! Let me know when your shower is I have a little something for you :)

gunnells said...

You are so stinkin' cute pregnant, but I still can't believer you are already 6 months, that went by so fast!!

Ryan and Brindi said...

That's really funny about the random people rubbing your belly thing. I remember people doing that to Brindi all the time. You look great! Wish we were out there a little closer so we could hang out with you guys.

Johnathan and Jannene said...

Congrats! I am only one week ahead of you! I just turned 30 weeks! Yikes-it's hard to believe that there are only 10 weeks to go. It is hard getting read a little for me because I get tired easier and we're trying to save money so that I can stay home. I did escape the belly line so far... but my ankles and feet did not escape the swelling :( Oh well... But so far it has been a great pregnancy. I love feeling my little boy in me bumping around!

Dan Wyrick said...

Sarah I just about cried when I saw that pic of you with the crutches, the blue baggy shorts and the exasperating look on your face.....Oh my could I feel your pain.....OUCH big time! I know the knee problem thing but not with being pregnant on top of it all. My heart goes out to you and Kip too. Love ya so much :O)
