Week 31 & 32

Is it really true that Mister and I only have 7 weeks left?  AHH, I'm so not ready.  I'm pretty ready to not be pregnant any more but I am really not ready to have 2 kids…ha.
 Without having a baby room to get ready I feel kind of strange.  There is only so much I can do without a crib, and walls to paint, and art to make, etc.  Plus the fact that I am insanely busy with building a house and working.
My body is a bit worn down but I am still feel pretty good for the most part.

I started having contractions during week 32.  They are pretty annoying but they aren't the real thing and only come occasionally.  I didn't have a single contraction with Ruby until I was in active labor so MAYBE that means the baby will come more on time this time?
Probably not.

In house news we are completely framed and shingled.  We have exterior windows and doors and and amazing clawfoot tub sitting in the master bedroom just waiting for my aching bones. Plumbing and electricity are supposed to be in this week!
Both my body and the house are coming along as they should (mostly).
We'll be back soon with more news!

Week 29 and 30

Written by Shannon Leigh

Since we are now well into week 31 it's hard to remember the happenings of 29 and 30.

I know I am starting to feel really pregnant now and I still have a LONG WAY to go.  That's kind of depressing but we are now into the single digits as far as weeks go.  THAT feels good, at the same time I am not sure if I am quite ready for 2 babies.
I am kind of focused on making it through my last 6 weddings and countless shoots. September is crazy.  
I like to pretend that I'm not pregnant and it works most of the time.  I'm staying mentally strong, that's what I keep telling myself anyway.  Mind over matter.
Mister is really growing now and my belly has finally popped out there.  ha.
He has the hiccups 19 thousand times a day and rolls around like crazy.  We are still not sure if he is head down or breech. I personally think he flips all the time…  if they aren't sure in a few weeks we will do a scan.  I'll do whatever it takes to flip him if he is breech but only time will tell.

With Ruby I couldn't WAIT to go to the doctor every few weeks now I just find them annoying, can't I just tell them when I go into labor?  We've got plenty of time… trust me.

The house is mostly framed now!  It should be finished by the end of the week.
Now we are starting to get to pick out the finishing touches!  Yikes, talk about pressure. SO MANY DECISIONS!
