30 weeks

this photo was taken at 30 weeks. it seems so misleading. i feel WAY larger than this. maybe it helps that you cant see my face :) at my 30 week doc appointment i had gained exactly 40 lbs. with 10 more weeks to go i am sure i will hit the 50 lbs mark this time. i have always come close but never actually hit it before. as i write this i am 32 weeks. i know it has only been 14 days, but man, 32 weeks sounds so much better to me than 30. i am ready to get this baby out of my belly and into my arms. the child moves constantly from about 7:30 at night til 7:30 in the morning! "he" gets hiccups all the time. today the kids got watch and feel my belly jump with each hiccup. they kept bringing things to place on my belly to watch jump around when the baby moved. it really is amazing! i feel so guilty for complaining about any part of it. god is giving us this child with great responsibility and i feel as though somedays, probably most days, i have just complained. how selfish am I!!! ............ thank you lord for this awesome miracle. help to stay focused on you to get me through this.
on to a funny story.... i eat most of the day. i am constantly hungry, so when the kids see me eating they always want a snack too. i have been telling them that the snack is for the baby, and that the baby was hungry. today i found brenna eating a pack of fruit snacks that she had gotten all by herself. i told her she was not allowed to eat snacks without asking me first. she told me "momma, my baby's hungry!" i had to laugh! i told her she didnt have a baby in her belly and her response was as she was lifting us her shirt "yes, i do.... see my belly button!" the kids have been fascinated by the shape of my belly button. it is completely stretched out and looks nothing like a normal belly button. it kind of grosses me out but the kids think it is great. the girls inspect it each day. so, that is life at the wid house these days.

I think you look great! And girl, 50 pounds is nothing. You'll be back to your very skinny self in no time!!!

And my two did the same thing with snacks! How funny and how quickly they pick up on stuff!

Hang in there! I can completely relate. I was one of those that did not enjoy pregnancy at all-watching my body morph was alittle too much.I remember one time feeling an overwhelming need to get the baby out and have my body and emotions back. I will keep you in my prayers as well.

New life is such a miracle and all the "inconveniences" of pregnancy come with a great reward! You are certainly a busy Mommy, but treasure this time because it too shall pass. We love your family and your precious belly!
