38 weeks pregnant and feeling more sore than I have ever felt in my entire life (which is saying something because I endured "hell week" for soccer tryouts on more than one occasion). I'm aware of the fact that I'm pregnant, obviously, because all of my muscles ache, my belly is protruding out from my body in a ridiculous way, and random strangers keep touching it... but I somehow still seem to "forget" that I'm pregnant. The closer it all gets, the more surreal things start to feel. 

I can't believe that we are about to turn the page on this chapter of life-- I feel like I've never been anything BUT pregnant. I've only been pregnant for 9 measly months out of my entire life and yet somehow memories of not being pregnant seem hazy and dream-like. So bizarre.

These last few weeks have been exceptionally special to me-- this little girl already has so much personality and I haven't even met her yet. It's fun to press my hands against my belly and feel her little arms and legs retaliate against the pressure and push right back. She's a night owl and thinks it's fun to keep me up all night by having what feels like a little fiesta in my womb. I think she likes apple juice a lot because she dances every time I drink it. And she knows the sound of Taylor's voice because every time he gets close to my belly and starts talking to her, she starts acting like she's trying to break out so she can actually meet him. 

We're just living out our final moments as a family of two (three, if you count Kingsley). But we cannot wait to add this little girl into our lives.

  2. I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE YOUR WEE BABE! Seriously. I miss being pregnant so, so much, so I'm living vicariously through you. I had a hell pregnancy (seriously - it sucked, a lot more than usual), but I wanted to do it all over again after two weeks with my son. The last few weeks DRAG by, but the rest of it will be quick, so cherish every moment!

    1. Pregnancy seriously is SO HARD. I've been struggling through it but I've been so grateful for the opportunity to be able to grow another human being inside of me. It's honestly so cool. But hard. haha

      I know it's going to be over before I know it and there will be a small part of me that misses it so much!
