In Honor of The Less Than 20 Day Mark

While I watch that little ticker go down daily and it excites me, I have tried to prepare myself for the fact that it could actually be longer than 19 days until I give birth. Please pray that this does not happen. ;-)

Without Further Ado...(in honor of the less than 20 day mark):

A Few of My Favorite Things

  • Feeling so wonderfully blessed to be able to experience carrying a baby - there are so many women in the world who never get to experience it - EVER!
  • Feeling the Baby Move!!!
  • Watching My Husband Seeing My Belly Move
  • Having Mr. Howard rub my belly and talk to the baby
  • Bath Time
  • Occasional foot rubs and back rubs from my Darling Husband
  • My Skin (ahhhhh not a single breakout)
  • My Hair (yay for Pre-Natal Vitamins)
  • Setting up the Nursery
  • Watching my Parents, Mr. Howard's Parents, and my Sister Get Excited!
  • Maternity Clothes (feel blessed to have been given the privilege to wear them)
  • Not having to cook every night
A Few of the Things I am Ready to Put Behind Me

  • Contractions
  • Maternity Clothes (I am so ready to shop at normal size stores)
  • Stares (people stare at pregnant people, I swear)
  • Heartburn
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Swollen Feet, Ankles, Calves, and Thighs - okay really EVERYTHING
  • Not being able to even put lotion on my feet or calves
  • Not being able to sit out of bed or the couch without a darn pulley
  • Morning Sickness (Luckily, I did put this behind me at about 14 weeks)
  • Upper Right-hand Rib-cage Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Having to Rely on Someone Else to Help Me Do EVERYTHING
  • Did I mention the swollen feet, ankles, calves, and thighs??!! (Sorry it's 105 degrees today)

The glorious love/hate relationship with pregnancy. Soon you will have your body somewhat to yourself again. And better yet soon you will have a glorious little one to love more in the most amazing way.

I had Ellie laying on my belly when we came home and I could hardly believe she had been inside there just days before. It is an amazing experience. I am getting excited for you to meet your little one just thinking about it.
