Almost done.....

I can't believe it, but it's almost over....the pregnancy, that is. I know in many ways, it's just the begining, though. (and I won't lie, that scares me to death-haha!) While I enjoy being pregnant and I want her to stay in as long as she wants (because they are MUCH easier when they are inside, than when they are out-haha), I am SO over being pregnant.

I went to Motherhood Maternity today to buy a dress for a wedding next week. (I hate that store, BTW...always have) The sales lady immediately annoyed me...'Yes, I have shopped here before,' 'No, I don't need any help,' 'No, I don't want your stupid credit card,' 'No, I don't want to sign up for your damn college savings program,' 'No, I don't need you to fit me for nursing bras,' 'No, I don't want to sign up for Parenting magazine!' GEEZ...I just want to get in and out of here with a dress before my toddler destroys your store, haha! And, for those of you that haven't shopped at lovely Motherhood....Yes, they ask every one of those questions within 1 min. of entering in the store, and then they push and push until the min. you walk out. I am NOT exaggerating. EVERY TIME I go in there, it's the same type of person. I would love to know who trains their employees. As I was leaving, I made sure to tell her how happy I was that this is the LAST piece of maternity clothing I will ever purchase, especially from them, and to take my name off of the 5million mailing lists she just put me on.-haha!

Enough complaining....let's talk Olivia. She will be here in 6 weeks (at the latest). The u/s's have consistently given one due date, while my last period gives another. Abby was not born until 2 days past her due date, so my official guess on Olivia's arrival is: Sept. 15. That will make her late my by first due date, but 2 days early based on the u/s due date. Scott's guess (for now) is Sept. 10. Any other guesses??? Last week as I was leaving my appt. the Dr. said, 'if you aren't ready, you better get ready!' aaaaahhhhh! I am NOT ready. I am scared to death, actually...even more so than last time. (for those of you that know anything about my last delivery, you know why-haha! it too late to BEG for a c-section? Just kidding, but I really wish they could laser beam these babies out or something.)

Anyways, here are some recent belly shots. Now, getting a good belly shot is quite an undertaking in this house.

Trying to get a pic with Abby and my belly. Yes, that is a muffin she is smashing into my hair! haha!

The typical Scott shot. He thinks this is soooo HYSTERICAL. Every single time I try to get a bare belly pic, he takes a shot like this before I can get ready. Do men EVER grow up?? haha!
Finally, a picture. A crappy one, but a picture to document these last few weeks. I even tried playing with the editing to see if I could find a setting to make me look less tired, but none worked. haha! Oh, well!

You can't even tell you are pregnant from behind. By the way, I am hoping for Sept. 13. That is Kurt's birthday. The first pic of you and Abby is adorable . . and in your other post, she is gorgeous. You're absolutely correct about that. :) Miss you guys! Love ya!

Oh, Scott you are hilarious! Love the muffin picture too! :) It was so fun bumping into you guys at the pool!! Have a great weekend with your Mom.

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
