38 Week Update

Well, Sunday we hit 38 weeks and I feel no closer to having this baby.

How Far Along: 38 weeks 1 day

Weight Gain: still the same, I may have gained a half a pound this week

Maternity Clothes: mostly sweats

Sleep: nonexistent

Miss Anything: sleeping on my stomach

Movement: when she moves, it's quite large but she's running out of room

Cravings: salty

Also, I've had several people ask about the things we have made for her so here are a few pics.
Changing pad cover
A small receiving blanket from the same material.  I actually made a couple of different types of receiving blankets from this material since I had so much.
Like this one
Another receiving blanket, you can never have too many.
I love making burp cloths. They're so easy.  I went and found a few coordinating fabrics and made these.
Had some fabric left over, so I made this quilt. I am in love with the piecey  look.
I fell in love with this fabric so that's what I made her diaper bag with.  On the inside is one of daddy's old uniforms.  I had some leftover so I made this quilt
It's a rag quilt and I also made her ring sling out of that fabric
We had some of daddy's uniform and turned it into a small diaper and wipes case carrier.
I made her a few headbands for all the photos we will be taking
There are also a few crotcheted pieces I made for her like this small green blanket with matching hat
Also this cute little pumpkin hat to go with her Halloween outfit we found at Walmart.
Not to mention this absolutely beautiful dresser that she and the Princess are going to share.  Daddy made it.  He is a very talented carpenter.  More on that later.
Whew.  Thanks for making it this far.  I hope enjoyed and we will keep everyone posted about when this little girl will make her debut.  All for now.

37 Week Update

Ok, we're now considered full term.  I figured I would give everyone some updates on how we're doing and where we are with Hannah.

How Far Along: 37 weeks

Weight Gain: average, about 25 lbs, but I'm feeling quite large considering this is a pregnancy right after a pregnancy and I didn't get to lose all the pregnancy weight from Addison.

Maternity Clothes: hardly anything, everything is uncomfortable

Stretch Marks:  what do you think, this is number 5

Sleep: hardly any

Cravings: none really

Gender: still a girl Hannah Michelle

Symptoms:  hip pain

Wedding rings still fit

Happy or Moody:  a little of both

Looking forward to:  Holding my angel and taking her home.

If there are any other things I missed, just let me know. :)  We're so ready to meet our little girl.  All for now.

August Recap

Where did August go?  I swear I just said Hello August, how did you get here so fast.  Well, it came and went and time keeps ticking.  Our August was not as crazy as last year, but it was so much fun.  We got our homeschooling started back up (to allow for all of the craziness that this school year will hold) and we had a birthday.  We also got our orders for our move.  Please pray for our family that nothing gets changed in that area.  Big Man turned 9 in August and it blows me away that he is already that old.  We had a few doctor appointments and have been preparing for little miss's arrival.  Starting this week I'll be giving baby updates.  For now here are a few pics from our August.  I hope you enjoy.  All for now.

By the way, please let me know if you miss our Fun Food Friday blog every week. :)
