35 Weeks:

I officially feel pregnant. It is getting harder to do every day things and each night my bed kindly welcomes my achy body. It is much different being pregnant the first time without having a little one to chase and take care of on a daily basis. It is also amazing how quickly you can go from feeling great to feeling super pregnant. But in the midst of the third trimester aches and pains, I am continually in awe of God and his beautiful plan and way he makes and gives life. A miracle indeed. 

New this time around: Braxton Hicks contractions! I never felt any with Henry, so these are new and interesting. Also, pain on top of my stomach. Hoping this is just muscles being pushed and pulled and that it immediately disappears once the babe is born. 

A lady stopped me in church and said "you are beautiful!". I need to remember to tell super pregnant ladies this. 

A family here at camp watched Henry for an entire morning. It was just what we all needed. He got to play hard with the big kids and I got to mop the floor (nesting, anyone?) and take a long shower. Thankful to be surrounded by loving and understanding families. 

And, we are just so so so excited to meet this little one.
