37 weeks and feeling it........

 37 weeks! Officially full term! If only that meant something for me... I had to be induced with both my daughters, so I have no hope of ever going before, or on time, or on my own! So more than likely this baby will be stuck inside of me for at least 3 weeks..possibly 5.... Shane says I have to wait at least 4 more it'll fit into his school schedule..haha.
  I'm definitely feeling tired these days! Everything is hard...getting up and down, picking things up, walking, matter how much I sleep I'm still tired. I can't even think about exercising because everything hurts! And this baby pretty much never stops jabbing me in very uncomfortable places. And I had a dreadful week of Shane being at school late every day...and I had somewhere that I had to go every evening so that I had to bring the girls home late...carrying a sleeping Felicity because when she doesn't nap she is asleep by 7...and so I am exhausted. And so over being pregnant. haha.
   I think that's all the complaining I'll do...for now. I know its nothing every pregnant mother doesn't go through! And I know I have it easier than a lot of women.
   I was sorting through baby clothes today...and it got me so excited about having this baby!

Happy St. Valentine's Day!


Today was our best Valentine's Day yet. It was the first time I made an effort to get into it with the girls..we made crafts galore and Maria was sooo excited for the day to come. Not sure what she was expecting to happen....but this morning she exclaimed (after we finished eating cinnamon rolls) "This is the best morning I've ever had!" This afternoon we made heart shaped cookies:
And for supper we made heart shaped pizza:
The highlight of the day was Daddy coming home for supper. Usually on Tuesdays he doesn't come home because he has night class til 9:30..but today he found time in between classes to grace us with his presence:)  And he came bearing gifts!
Roses for his three girls: Maria was delighted-her first time receiving flowers!
With her cards from Daddy

Maria's cards from Daddy:) On them he wrote things that he loves about her:)

 The whole supper Maria kept saying "We have such a special Daddy! I love you so much Daddy!" It sure makes putting an effort into things enjoyable when they are appreciated in such a fashion:) 
       Hope everyone else had an equally pleasing day!

35 weeks!

So here I am at 35 weeks! Getting so close! 

So I am beginning to realize that this baby will have to come out of me somehow within the next 7 weeks.......there is no getting out of it! Needless to say I am freaking out. I hate not knowing when it will happen...or how it will could be like the other two, or it could be vastly different! Just trust in the Lord, right?! 
Just for fun, here is me at 35 weeks with Maria 5 years ago:
I think I've gained about 25 lbs less this time around! Thank goodness!
