I love taking belly pictures toward the end of my pregnancy, because looking back on how big and different my body becomes is so fun for me to do later on. Even though right now it seems so natural that this has become my body, in a few short months I will look back and not be able to believe how big I was. And even though I may not "look big" I have gained 30 pounds ALL in that little belly, which is a whole lot to more to carry around these days! Especially when my first baby wants to be "up" all the time too, and I have to fit them both up front there somewhere.
Tomorrow I'll be 36 weeks, and I have another sonogram to see how baby is growing, as well as an appointment with my doctor. First of my one week appointments! So excited to see how baby is doing.
We're all packed. We're all ready. Everything is set for baby to arrive. I had a lot of help last week from my family, which I am so grateful for! Because now I have a peaceful feeling of waiting and excitement. I threw away my "things to do before baby arrives" checklist, because everything got done! Such a blessing. Now, we wonder and wait. When will baby come? How will baby arrive? Will baby be a boy or a girl (or a puppy, as Reilly still predicts)? So many questions, the answers to which will come quite soon! This is the best kind of excitement!
