room for one more!!!!

(me & the kids last summer in michigan---group hug!)

I just returned from my doctor's appointment...they're coming every week now!

How amazing to hear the words,
"You're at the finish line! You made it! If labor starts now, we won't try to stop it..."
Wow...I loved the analogy to finishing a race...I do fancy myself an athlete, runner and triathlete, although my training has been altered quite a bit.
Training through this pregnancy has been more physically difficult, more tedious and mentally hard...

I can't wait to hit the pavement again...and swim without pulling a 6 pound drag---but I know I will miss this...there's something so special about sharing this time with my little one kicking and squirming about. The positive energy she gives & the hope she brings is such a gift.
I am so honored to be her mom and can't wait to meet her in a few weeks...or sooner!!!

I will check in again tomorrow...
hopefully with some more additions to my etsy shop!

Thanks for sharing in my anticipation of this amazing time!!!


****Update: I will start adding to my etsy shop tomorrow! The time change threw me for a loop!

Thanks for the comment Jody, you must be fairly close to baby time now? The last few weeks are the most exciting and nerve racking.
I'm sending you good luck wishes and hope it all goes smoothly for you.
