35 weeks

I have hit 35 weeks today and I couldn't be more happy. I hope I only have one more week to go. This pregnancy has gone by too fast but I will not complain. I've loved being pregnant but I can assure you I am ready not to be pregnant. My stomach just continues to grow and I don't know when it will stop! I am still getting up every 2-3 hours at night to use the bathroom... Thank goodness for the body pillow I bought a few months ago, it has been a life saver for my back and ever growing stomach. There is no way I would be comfortable without it.

Today I noticed that if I am on my feet a lot, they start to swell. It took 35 weeks for that to happen so I won't complain!

These babies continue to move and kick all day. Their feet are pushed up against my ribs. There is always some body part moving across my stomach and most of the time it is the girl's body. The boy's head is so squished and has settled in my pelvic bone which makes it so uncomfortable to walk and stand up.

This week it hit me that I could most likely see these babies and hold them in my arms in a week. I feel an overwhelming love for them that I know will get stronger once I see them in person. I feel so blessed that the Lord has given me two child to take care of. I hope they grow up to love one another and to love their parents :) They have been such a joy to carry for the last 9 months and it kind of saddens me that it will all be ending soon. I look forward to the many joyous years ahead for all of us as a family!

This past week at my appointment, the tech snapped a picture of the boy! He def. has a Gray face!

Our baby girl still has her arm and hand near her face. She is ALWAYS like this! I think she looks more like me and def. has my nose.

WOW! Tears run down my face as I read your sweet comment. I am so happy and excited for you and Clark. You will be wonderful parents. Things will come to so natural, some by experience of others, and some you will get in very quite times from the Lord himself!! Either way, you will have so much support and love:)
