I have been very terrible at documenting this pregnancy. It's not because we are not thrilled about this little girl, just that blogging seems to have taken a back seat. And also pregnant selfies are not very flattering.
But here are some fairly recent pictures:
This is one if my favorite things to wear right now. My sisters spoiled me with this way cute shirt for my birthday and it just feels so fancy.
Which is actually about two weeks ago. Jordan was in idaho visiting his sister who just left for her mission and I had my horrendous 3 hour glucose test on a Saturday morning. (Ugh, but I passed!!!) After the test Lyla and I came home and crashed and then got up and ready and went to the mall for a girls' night. It was so fun to have a fun little outing with my girl.
Some quick facts about this pregnancy:
Baby girl is super wiggly. She has been for a while. We are now at the point where I can not only feel her move but we can see her move as well. This is my favorite part about being pregnant. I love feeling this little miracle move and I am constantly so grateful for her.
My back pain has gotten better due to the exercises from my physical therapy I had during the summer as well as the body pillow that I now sleep with.
NO DIABETES for me this time!!! There are not words to describe how happy I about this. So I think I will eat a brownie instead. (Just kidding. While it's super nice not to have to count carbs and be so strict, I have been loading up on my vegetables and all kinda of healthy food.)
I am just starting to feel big and swollen and I can tell that she has really grown lately. This is all exciting and also a little scary because it makes me realize that we are, in fact, going to have a baby...
Lyla is the sweetest and seems to understand quite a bit. She asks all the time if we can go to the hospital to get Baby Sister. I have also heard her tell other kids that she is a big sister. She loves to put her hands on my tummy and talk to her. Lyla also gets very very jealous when I hold other babies, so we have learned to hold babies together and she loves that.
Overall, I am so excited. I love newborns and I keep just wanting to hold this little girl.
