Grateful



My mind has been everywhere BUT this blog for the past few months. Sorry!! I have an excuse this time though, I have baby on the brain!

I am now 34 weeks and I have been feeling amazing which I have been so grateful for. I feel pretty much exactly how I did before I was pregnant, except for the ever growing belly of course :) Sometimes moving around is a bit more difficult these days but I really can't complain! I know so many girls have it a lot worse than I do. It's been so nice to be able to get at least a little exercise in throughout the pregnancy. Most mornings I wake up around 6:45 and walk 3 miles before I go to work. It has really been kind of therapeutic for me. It gives me lots of time to gather my thoughts about all of this. About a month and a half ago the Braxton Hicks contractions started. On average I have been having at least 15 a day but thank goodness they haven't been hurting. One completely strange thing that has really surprised me is my leg hair has almost completely stopped growing. It's almost too good to be true!!! That in itself has been a blessing because I can hardly reach that far anymore :). Cravings really haven't been too much of an issue for me. The only thing that I have really wanted on a daily basis is string cheese... yum! It is so hard for me to believe that in 6 weeks time, I won't be pregnant anymore. I know it will be a bitter sweet moment. I feel like I have been pregnant forever and find it hard for me to think back to how I felt before I was pregnant. 

He is such an active little guy!!! He is moving around so much which I absolutely love! I am going to miss those kicks and jabs more than anything. I love just sitting there and watching my stomach move around like crazy. When I push him, he pushes back. I think he is definitely going to be all boy. I keep on wondering what is he going to look like. I just wish we could see him already! I hope he gets Brady's adorable dimples.

Having this pregnancy go so well it really makes me hopeful for my next one. It's good to know that my body can handle pregnancy well. I know it's probably too much to ask but I hope that all of my pregnancies are this pleasant... it has been such a blessing!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

It is such a strange feeling knowing that I am a mom now. There are no words to describe how much I already love him so much... he is my everything. Even though I haven't seen him yet, I feel like I already know him and am so attached to him. Gosh, he already has me wrapped around those tiny little fingers. I am so grateful for the gospel and as I have gone throughout this pregnancy I feel it really has brought me to such a greater understanding of the family unit. I am so grateful that we have been sealed to these babies and that we will be able to be with them forever. Life would not be worth living if we didn't have that promise. I can't thank our Heavenly Father enough for giving us that special blessing.


Our little guy is waving at you... or more like our little Jack-O-Lantern :)
