Pregnancy Diaries: Part 3

August 7, 2013:

August 25, 2013:

Nothing like late night food runs. Don't ask what I'm wearing. 
July 21, 2013:

I am doomed. All the babies love Zach and quit crying when I hand them to him...

Making fun of my belly:

My hubs has been amazing throughout this whole process. It's been a true blessing. With all the emotional rollercoaster rides and physical setbacks, he hasn't complained. I really can't express enough of how grateful I am for him. I try my best in return to serve him and make his favorite meals, etc. but even then I still feel like I owe him big time! He's the best friend I could ever ask for! I know I would not have made it without him.

It hurts to walk. It's hurt for a while now... that is all.

Great news! I no longer have been having nausea! What does that mean? It means that I can eat almost anything! It's definitely expanded my food options and everything that sounds good. I also wake up like I can do anything! Every day I've been having a glass of chocolate milk, mmm. I just crave it all the time. I've also been eating cereal and sandwiches and just about everything I used to! Because before nothing ever sounded good and I struggled finding something apetizing to eat. I would have to force food down my throat and I have always been a food lover. It's been so nice to eat ha ha.

I did all the baby's laundry, and I can't believe he will be wearing these tiny clothes. It makes me more and more excited! I can't help but 'aww' and almost tear up when I just look at them. I think I've always been that way with baby clothes (who isn't) but now this time it's for my own!

I quit my nanny job and since then my nesting instinct intensified, my main focus has been getting all those last minute things done. If I would've known how relieved and more peaceful I was as soon as I quit, I probably would have quit sooner. I really do miss the girls I took care of and think about them often. It's been so nice focusing on what matters most to me though, and that's my little family. Instead of coming home tired, I have been able to run errands at my own pace and make better dinners for Zach. He doesn't exactly say it, but I know he loooves when he comes home from work with dinner on the table. I mean, who doesn't? It's been a lot easier to do so since I've been home more.

October 5-7, General Conference Weekend:

See! I told you babies love him! I'm in for a real treat.

Pre-season Jazz Game. Dr. Zach put me on bedrest for the day so I could go to the game that night with no problems. He bought me ice cream which made it even more fun for me. :) It was a fun game though since the Jazz won!

September 25, 2013:

Since I've been home a lot more than before, it's given me some time to think about my choice of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I've been keeping so busy with getting everything prepared and haven't got bored at all, thank goodness! I'm just having one baby and there is so much to do! Babies need so much, it's amazing! I am just so grateful that I have Zach, who is willing to work hard for our little family. I am also so grateful that we have the same feelings, thoughts, beliefs and opinions on how we want to raise our family and that includes me staying home to take care of this baby, our home and most of all, our marriage. I feel not only blessed, but so lucky that my husband has the same desires I do.

^^ This was taken just a couple days ago. It's October 15th and I'm at week 38 now, I look the same and am measuring 1/2 cm smaller than I should be because baby is dropping. My body is finally showing signs of labor and from it looks like, the baby will be arriving right on time. My patience is being tried, but this month has really been flying by so no complaints. I can't believe we will have another member in our family in about 15 days. I just keep telling myself to be grateful for a full-term baby. It's what's best and most healthy for him. I love him so much already.
