31 Weeks

I'm in the home stretch! He'll be here soon, and thank you Jesus I can retire from having babies! 
I had a doctor's appointment yesterday. I was measuring at 33-34 weeks instead of 31.
So I have to go back Thursday so they can do an ultrasound and see how big this baby boy is.
Although I know it's a long shot, I'm secretly praying Gideon is just more developed and will come sooner than we thought. Of course not too soon though.
I've got so much to do and buy before he gets here, it's just difficult to find the time, energy, and money to do it all especially right in the middle of the Holiday season, and with Adeline's birthday party next month too.
I'm trying not to stress out about it though. God always provides us with what we need, and we always find a way! 

I am looking forward to being normal again soon. 
You know sitting up with out a throbbing back, eating without puking, having an appetite again, walking across the house without becoming winded, keeping up with my little girl, cooking, cleaning, working out....
all of it!
Minus the sleep deprivation that I know is ahead. 
I'm starting to get to the point where I'm not sleeping well, and even that is good sleep compared to the sleep mommies get with a newborn around. I'll take sleep deprivation over pregnancy any day though!

I'm going to try my best to take it as easy as possible for another month though so this little guy can wait for his daddy to be home. Then once Philip gets here.... I want this baby out!!!!!!!
Soon, soon, soon.


  1. Yay, you're getting so close!

    I have measured big all along so far too so the Dr. is keeping an eye on it. I hope that Gideon has developed ahead of schedule & can come early for you too. That would be such a treat, as long as he is fully ready of course!

    Best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy! <3

  2. Exciting! So close! Hope the last few weeks fly by for you!

  3. perhaps they have your due date wrong (unless you were charting and know specific dates, like we were)... maybe you're further along than initially thought(?).

    i don't know about you... but even though everyone says i'm carrying high, i have this horrible pressure and pain below my belly--where my legs attach(for a lack of better description). it's like my skin is just constantly being pinched and it HURTS! my mom says it's normal--it happened to her... but man, it's uncomfy. i can only imagine how bad it will be once the baby drops!

    i am hoping our baby will come a little early too--but not too much... i am with you on being DONE with pregnancy! (however, i hope to have more someday... i think)

    (you look great, by the way!!)

  4. Praying for you girl:) I forgot how icky that last month is! You look so adorable though!

  5. Courtney I am 35 almost 36 weeks so I know how you feel about wanting to have your body bake & ready to retire LOL

    You look great though & hopefully he will be here sooner rather then later & you get all you need to done.

    Can't wait to see pictures of Gideon when he is here :)

  6. Wow, he's getting big!
    i can't wait till you have him, either! gosh. it'll be so nice for you to feel good again:)
