7 Months In.

Seven months. I have been carrying this sweet baby in my womb for over half a year. It's so hard to believe! The second trimester really flew by with me feeling great and the weather was gorgeous.
I'm officially in my third and final trimester as of two weeks ago, and am 30.5 weeks today. I've really been noticing how I have to slow down again, and the third trimester has brought back the hormones, achiness, and occasional nausea of the first trimester. I'm hungry a lot, but because Baby is squishing my stomach now I can't eat as much, so it feels like I'm constantly eating small meals and snacks!

I get bigger daily as Baby grows, kicking and squirming around in his/her cozy little nest. I am so excited to meet my baby! Time seems to have started dragging again, and the weeks are so quickly ticked off the calender. Still, I can not help but be occasionally overwhelmed at the thought that in ten weeks or less I will will be holding my own baby, and be a mom. It's exciting but scary. I've never been that responsible for another human being before, but I will lean on my Jesus for strength and guidance.

My first baby shower is in less then two weeks, I'm so excited! My generous and sweet friend Donna is throwing it for us, and I can't wait. :) She is one of the sweetest people I know, and has been a true blessing in my life.

Besides a preterm labor scare last weekend, my pregnancy has gone so well! I have no major complaints, and am loving being pregnant more then I even imagined I would! :)
