Okay... so here is the belly so you can see that we are growing:
Ummm... yes... we are at the point where it's not so much cute anymore- just big. I've already started my weekly appointments with my doctor. I thought for sure I would be progressing more than what I actually am because I feel like Sawyer is so low that she could just slide right out at any second. At my first weekly appointment I was dialated at 1/2, and this week I was at a 1...so yeah- 1/2 in a week is not much at all. Sawyer may be like Kennedie & just happy & content where she is and not wanting to come out on her own. That's okay.....
To be honest, we do not have all of our ducks in a row ready for her to arrive just yet. We just started working on the "to do" list that we've made before her arrival. I don't think the whole "nesting" thing happens with the second kiddo. I have yet to feel that urge to clean and prepare... I just at a point where I am making myself do stuff because I don't want her to show up and us be totally not put together.
I don't think I've gained as much weight with Sawyer as I did with Kennedie. By the time 40 weeks rolled around with Kennedie I had gained 44 total pounds with her. So far I've only gained 29 with Miss Sawyer, but I still have 3 weeks left. Even though I worked out while pregnant with K, I think I've been more consistent this time around.... plus I have a little one to keep me busy this time. I also think I started swelling much sooner with Kennedie.... if I can remember correctly shoes and rings stopped fitting with her at around 34 weeks.... I'm 37 with Sawyer and just had to remove my rings for a few days, but now they are back to fitting.... shoes pretty much still fit.
Sawyer is still a kicker. I tell you what... they say at this point in time the baby may slow their movements, but Sawyer is still a mover and a shaker. .... Which is one reason for my lack of sleep lately. It's been difficult to get a good night's rest lately.... I'm grateful that last night I got a good nights sleep though.
Although I may not have all my ducks in a row ready for a new baby to arrive- I am beyond excited to meet my sweet Sawyer. With all my heart I am ready to hold her and love her and be her mommy. I know that God has prepared our hearts to welcome her & now we just need to prepare the house!
