Belly Picture

Okay, so my grandma very sweetly reminded me that she hasn't seen very many pictures of my preggy belly, so this one's for you Teresa! I'm hoping that tomorrow this gigantic belly will be dramatically reduced. I have done just about everything I can think of. I've had my membranes stripped, I've been running up and down stairs, I've eaten spicy food, I've gone on walks, and right now, as I type, I am bouncing up and down on a yoga ball. I SOOOO want to have this baby NOW!

I didn't realize how lucky I was with Addison. My pregnancy with her was relatively pain free. Such is NOT the case with this pregnancy. I have seriously been in so much pain...well, for the past month and a half...but especially for the past three weeks! It's MISERABLE!!! I used to think that those ladies who complained about how terribly painful the last month of pregnancy was were just wimps, or had a very low pain tolerance. I have now repented. I am SOOOOOOO sorry! Now I understand!!! May the Lord forgive me for ever having had such evil thoughts.

Here is one of the many things that is driving me to have this child as soon as humanly possible:

LOOK AT HOW SWOLLEN THOSE FEET ARE!!! In all reality, this is not the most painful thing (uncomfortable yes, but blatantly painful, no), but it does make that running up and down those stairs quite unpleasant. I don't remember my feet being so swollen with Addison. I figured I'd document it this time so that next time I can really compare.

If you have any ideas for how to make this baby come faster I am open to suggestions! I have to confess, after talking with a maternity nurse I have a severe fear of Castor oil, but other than that I'm willing to try just about anything, so please! Share your wisdom!

girl, I haven't found ANYTHING that might help you. And I do massage and know all those 'pregnancy points', yeah whatever. I just had to be patient and wait till the baby decided they were ready.... ok, ok, so I didn't quite master the PATIENT part of that! lol

...Rocky and I keep checking your blog everyday to see if you've had the baby. SO, you need to post something every day or I'm going to think you're in the hospital! lol

you look DANG cute by the way!

Oh goodness, girl. You poor thing. You look awesome, but those ankles sure look like they hurt.

We're sending you good "go into labor" vibes. I've heard pineapple helps, but who knows!? At least it's yummier than castor oil!

Can't wait to meet Miss Hannah! (great name!!!)

We miss you guys.
