The Crazy Pregnant Lady


The crazy pregnant lady voted yesterday JUST LIKE THIS! Ha! Ben snapped this picture just after I came out. :) We were running a bit late to take our time because I had to get to the doctor. I had just blow dried my hair and thrown it up into my "volumizing velcro rollers" as we left the house. (Those things barely even work! Why do I keep trying?) Our small community poll (in a little old empty house) nobody even seemed to care! The ladies working there are the same ones that work at the little gas station, so they just wanted to know about the babe. Oh the joys of living in a little country town! No lines, workers that know you by name and ask about the kids, and you can go looking like a freak-show and they love you anyhow. :) 

Doctor day went well! I have dilated more, but I only have to make it THREE more days!! THREE people! That's huge!! I'm HUGE! I have had a pretty miserable week but yesterday and today I have felt fairly good. I'm not on any medicines anymore so I have been managing as best as I can with natural methods. I'm not getting much rest, but it's ALL going to be worth it soon. In three days I will be able to say for the first time in my life "I carried a baby FULL TERM!!!" Woot woot! 37 weeks or bust! xo, Sam

Woo-hoo! You are so cute, and WOW on making it to almost full term. Those of whose babies had to be evicted after 10 months can never understand what an accomplishment this must be for you. Looking forward to your full term baby news.

I loved this photo - it made me laugh=) I'm so excited that you have only three more days to your goal - I can't believe you are almost there!

You're NOT huge, you're beautiful!! Praying that you finish this pregnancy with a full term baby.

I used to wear gigantic pink rollers in my hair so many years ago, I hate to admit. Congratulations on the full-term. It will be so awesome to have a "big" baby!

Hang in there, sweet baby! I'm so glad your little one is still safe inside - and you're not huge, you look great!

I recently found your blog and have been reading over it. I love all the cute ideas you post, but this made me cry. I always wanted a big family, after years of infertility we were blessed with my daughter last year, and then shocked when she was born at 23 weeks gestation ad 1 lb 13 ounces. She is a healthy 14 lbs and 6 months old tomorrow. We were surprised to find out that we are expecting baby number two next summer. I am so excited and we feel blessed again but i am so scared that we will have another preemie. This pregnancy has been filled with extra checks,measurements, ultrasounds, and soon I start weekly progesterone shots. With the birth of my daughter I thought my dreams of a large family were gone, your beautiful family has given me so much hope. Thank you.
