countdown

Today is 35 weeks 3 days. That means roughly 4 or 5 weeks left until I am holding my baby girl in my arms instead of my womb.

That is the single most scary and awesome thought in the entire universe.

My belly has exploded in the last week, I'm pretty sure. I don't know how I can possibly get any bigger, but I am assured by all my friends/family that I will. Thanks guys. ;)

Baby Girl gets hiccups. A lot. It always makes me laugh because she HATES them! It's funny how I can tell this about her already, but when she gets them, she starts going insane. She is pretty active most of time anyway, but add hiccups in and there is a whole lot of stretching and rolling and kicking going on.

She also has set up camp on my gallbladder, without much desire to move. Thankfully, this hasn't affected my liver or gallbladder in how they function, just in how they feel. Which is sore. A lot. But it's ok, not too much longer now.

I'm still sleeping pretty well. I have to turn over a lot during the night and I get up to go to the bathroom once, if at all. Oh, and I get dizzy! I was super concerned at first...and my OB got to see it first hand when he laid the table back to measure my belly. It was pretty immediate and he had me turn on my left side and it subsided. But, it's all normal. I mean as normal as pregnancy gets anyway.

Still overwhelmed with this blessing.
Still in awe of all God has brought us through.
Still humbled to be trusted with this little life.

And still trying to be still, and know that He is God.
