Fourth Pregnancy :: Month 8 :: 35 weeks 6 days

Ok…I’m SO far behind on all this stuff. To say life has been crazy is an understatement. It’s crazy, but great. The girls are doing so well, I’m feeling great, Travis is awesome, and we’ve just been keeping ourselves extremely busy. Busy to the point where it’s almost hard to remember that we are about to have a new family member.  That being said, when we do sit down and really think about what’s going to happen, we are SO thrilled and excited to welcome another little person into our world.

We hope she loves it as much as the rest of us do.

Anyway, here’s a picture of my 35 week, 6 day baby belly.  I’m technically 36 weeks today, but I took the picture yesterday, so I’m still going to call this my 8 month post.  When I’m around 38 weeks, I’m going to try REALLY hard to remember to write my 9 month post. Fingers crossed baby girl stays put until her due date.  We’re ready…but not ready…

Maternity clothes:
Maternity clothes and workout clothes…same as usual.

Stretch marks:
None.

Belly button:
Innie/outie.

Sleep:
I’ve been sleeping pretty well. As long as I go to bed early enough, I can handle the day ahead. And if I can sneak in a nap while the girls are napping, I’m golden!

Best moment of the month:
Ummmm…going on a couple dates with Travis. I love those nights.

Tons of heartburn.

What I’m looking forward to:
Meeting baby girl and having the girls meet her.

What I’m nervous about:
The lack of sleep I’ll have over the next 6 months.

What I miss:
Eating spicy food without heartburn.  You’d think I would stop eating spicy food (too bad that will never happen).

Next appointment:
Thursday, February 25th (the first appointment I’ll get “checked” – we’ll see if I’m already dilated at all).
