Who Are You Baby???

So, don't expect any preggo pictures after this...I'm feeling quite large these days! This pic was taken at 36 weeks and now I am 37 weeks, which means Baby is now full-term! We are getting so curious to know when this child will grace us with his/her presence and WHO this child will be! The heartbeat was 160-something last week and 139 this week, so no hints there. Several weeks ago, people kept asking me if I was uncomfortable yet. Naively, I was like "No, I feel great - never better." Then about 2 days later the late stages of pregnancy finally kicked in. Totally uncomfortable to sit/walk/sleep/breathe/move/anything/everything. I'm exhausted during the day and can't sleep at night. It's currently 2:30 am if that's any indication. Seasoned mothers laugh and comment..."get used to it because you won't sleep for the next 18 years!". So encouraging. Continuing to work full-time has been a challenge since I don't function well without sleep! Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade it for the world, because it's all worth it to get to become a family of three, and I feel totally blessed that Baby seems healthy and growing as it should. And Lord knows I'd take this tired/uncomfortable 3rd trimester over sick. all. the. time. 1st trimester any day! But, Baby, aren't you ready to come out yet and meet us?

You can NOT stop taking pregnancy photos. You will regret it when you are prego with #s 2, 3, 4, and 5. You will wish you had documented how big you were with #1. Besides, those of us who live far away need to see that baby belly so it is a little more real for us! And you WILL sleep again - sometime around their 4-6 month birthday. 5 hours straight will feel like 10. Hang in there!

I thought that I would check in on the blog to see if Baby Eigsti had came into this world yet. I bet that you both are so eager to meet him/her! Sondra, I know that it is probably hard to accept this comment, but you look great. I hope that all is going well and looking forward to seeing pictures when the baby comes! Blessings to you both!

Amen to the you look great. I was just with Sondra yesterday and she looks even smaller in person. The camera does add 10 pounds. I can't WAIT for baby to arrive and I am still crossing my fingers for one of those babies that sleeps through the night at 2 weeks. ;)
