The Count Down Begins.......



These pictures were taken on the 5th and I am pretty sure I am bigger now!

So all along I thought my due date was July 13th and my new Dr. changed it to the 12th but mentally I am just still going to tell myself it is the 13th. Either way, we are now officially due in LESS than a month!!!!!! I can't believe it, it still does not totally feel real and I am beginning to wonder when it is going to feel real???

We are getting close to finishing her bedroom and I am so super duper happy with how it is all turning out! It is super girlie which cracks me up because I have never been super girlie myself but I want my daughter to be more than I ever was! I will totally post pictures when we have the finished product which I am hoping will be by the end of this coming up week! YEAH!!!!! P.S. My Kipper has been such a good sport with me and my nesting! I am a pretty anal person when it comes to my house and how I want things and with the nesting thing kicking in it is even worse. I feel sorry for him and all the demands I have made on him lately with projects (most of them having nothing to do with a baby coming) that I have NEEDED done and the things I have NEEDED built. I really am not a woman that enjoys the part of pregnancy where people treat you like you are handicap! Some women LOVE IT and I HATE IT!!! I like being independent but I love my little girl too much to lift anything TOO heavy now and do things that I am really not supposed to do and I HATE IT!! I feel like it has made me NEED Kip so much more and I just feel bad for him! But he has been a good sport about it all! THANKS BABY!!!! I hope to be normal again in no time???

So this month has been a super busy one with baby showers (which I will post pictures from later since I have a million pictures to go through), projects, doctors appointments for my knee and this little lady, belly photo's, work, preparing for girls camp which is this coming up week YEAH, and getting the home ready for this little princess! Life has been kicking us in the BUTT lately with trial after trial but we are doing our very best to hang in there and keep up the positive attitude! I am just SO grateful to have our little Brooke coming to keep life HAPPY for us!

Ok and I have learned something about pregnancy, for myself at least! I have LOVED being pregnant every single step of the way, and then I hit the 8 month mark! I think the day I hit that 8 month mark I suddenly was DONE!!! My body aches SO BAD everywhere, my fingers are so swollen in the morning that I can hardly bend them and my finger joints HURT all day long, my feet are starting to swell but not SUPER BAD, I can't sleep for poo, peeing is becoming a regular past time, rolling over or standing up from any position is TOTAL WORK, getting wiped out from doing nothing really, and well, I am ready to have this baby girl!!!!! Give me 2 more weeks to get all my ducks in a row and photograph this wedding I have the last weekend of the month and then I am going to try to do what I can to get her out even though daddy thinks she should stay in till her due date! We shall see???? I am sure she will be on time or late but I would love to have her a little early I am aiming for July 8th, because I feel like she is already HUGE!!! We shall see???

Ok well that is the 8 month update for now, baby shower pictures are to come shortly!

yes! i am the first to leave a comment! sarah, i am so happy for you guys! i mean, even though your probably very tired, sore, emotional and whatever else comes along with pregnancy, you sound so happy and just ecstatic and that makes me very happy too! You guys are awesome and going to make freakin awesome parents! i cant wait to see you hold your new little girl as your first time as a mommy! congrats again on everything, you and kip have been such good friends and I cant wait to come down and visit you guys!

You look FANTASTIC. REally. Husbands don't have to deal with the pains of pregnancy and labor, so it's their duty to deal with the emotional needy wives.

My due date with my first was July 14th, then it got moved to the 11th and then I had him on the 8th. It's a good day to have a baby.

Good luck with the last month. The last month for me with each pregnancy is all a blur of discomfort and tears.

so fun! you look great! i know the last month of pregnancy seems to last forever. she will be here before you know it though and we are so excited for you guys! good luck this last month!

The Gray Family said...

welcome to the last month of pregnancy :>) In hindsight you will laugh, but right now it kind of sucks! Good thing it is worth it in the end :>)

melissa gargalis said...

This is what I think of when I think of being pregnant. The end part. The uncomfortable and all the rest of the "fun" stuff. You're so close! Can't to see your little one. Soon enough eh?

The Fien Family said...

The last four weeks are the longest...at least they were for me because like you, I was ready to get him out! And the aching hands and fingers are carpel tunnel. The water retention builds up and causes it. mine went away about a week after I had Griffin. I had A LOT of water retention in my WHOLE body. And it will all hit you when you come home and experience your first night with Brooke. The first month is a big adjustment with sleep and figuring out a schedule, but it gets better! Remember to take a lot of pictures and enjoy her while she is still little. Griffin is such a big boy now and he is not even 5 months!

Cindy said...

The last month is definitely the worse but at least you'll get used to not sleeping well! It probably won't all seem real to you until you actually have the baby home with you. Good luck and hang in there!

amber said...

this will be the slowest month of your life but after that they will fly by, enjoy everyday!!!! once she is here the years blend together. you look amazing. love you!!!

Jess said...

You look so awesome! I'm so excited for you guys.

Heather said...

I understand how you feel about the slow moving and having to rely on people to help you, but I think you being this prego during the summer doesn't help at all! I was definitely more uncomfortable, but I never really ached or got swollen luckily. You look great and your belly button is hilarious! It is totally popped and you can see it in from of the sign- LOVE IT!!! Mine never really popped! Cannot wait to see her room!!

anderson family said...

Hang in there Sarah! She will be here before you know it and it will all have been worth it. I hated not being able to sleep towards the end. They say it's to get you ready but believe me it doesn't really help it just annoys the heck out of you and robs you of your last few months of sleep. At least when she gets here you will have her to hold when she wakes you up. I can't wait to see pics of her and that awesome room you are putting together for her.

Tammy and Chris said...

Hey my due date was the 8th and I had Rylee on the 5th. For your sake I hope she comes a little early. I hope all goes well with the delivery!! Its soo close!

Jessica said...

It's amazing that out body's can just stretch out like that and at the first you think it will never come to an end, but just like that it's over... I don't think it will feel real for at least a month after you have her

Sara, Michael and Helena Miller said...

Congrats! Sarah! You guys are so cute! And you are such a cute prego woman! Hope everything is well! COngrats.. Love, The Millers

Trent and Kristi said...
