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!
