One week From the 4th!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Our little one could be here any day now! I am excited and nervous and anxious and happy and possibly every emotion that is out there.

I have gained 11 pounds and I have an ultrasound on Tuesday the 2nd to see the baby's size. We were measuring right on every week until I hit June and the size hasn't changed since the 4th. The doctor thinks it is because the baby is becoming engaged, but she wants to make sure.

I have yet to have any sort of contraction, so my guess is unless I am inducted that I will be going a little later than the 4th, but who knows.

I am trying to take these last few days in and cherish every possible moment no matter how tired and stressed a person can be at 39 weeks. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been given the opportunity to experience pregnancy. We tried for so long, and were told so many times that it wasn't going to be possible for us that I know this is all because of God and His plan for us.

I am still very motivated to become even healthier after the baby gets here, my hubby even started putting together a home gym in the basement, so that is going to make it ten times easier than trying to make it to the gym.

I am very proud that I haven't let my weight balloon while I have been pregnant and that will hopefully make it that much easier once I start again. I believe it was me actually starting to get healthy last August that helped to lead us to even become pregnant. I am 39 weeks and I still weigh about 20 pounds less than my heaviest weight. That impresses me!!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and can't wait to come back to you all!
