bitter sweet...i'm 34 weeks {personal}

So, being 34 weeks would be a relief to most pregnant moms...right?  One of my girlfriends is actually due the day before me, and she is counting down the days until she has the baby!  But me, on the other hand...I'm treasuring each day that I have left being pregnant, as it really is my last time to do this!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being pregnant, and I really wish that it would just last a little longer...say...until December or something!  ;)  He moves so much when I'm editing pictures, so I find myself constantly stopping to feel him in my belly or just watch how much my belly moves up and down.  (That could possibly also be the reason I'm taking a little longer editing all of these bunny shoot!  ;))  I think I keep feeling one of his little feet pushing on me.  It's an amazing site, and one that I hope to never forget.  I feel blessed to be able to experience this, for sure.

Now, don't get me wrong...I'm starting to get more and more uncomfortable...especially when I'm on my feet too much or sitting on a hard seat for too long.  AND, with the baby room getting closer to being finished and getting all the baby stuff into our house (infant carrier, swing, exersaucer, pacis, etc.), I'm also getting more and more excited for him to get here!  I daydream about what he will look like...about what his little personality will be...and how our family will work with his arrival.  AHHH!!!  Love the thought of all that "new-ness!"  Anyhow, a couple of my out-of-town friends and family asked me to post a few pics of myself pregnant...I thought, "No thanks, that's okay!" and now I'm thinking, "Why not?"  Especially since I like it so much, I shouldn't be so worried about it, right?  So, here are a few preggo pics of me over the past 34 weeks (taken by my hubby & Grady)...

So, there you have it.  Yes, my belly is very big and I'm constantly told, "Oh, you look like you're going to pop!" Or, "Oh my, I really don't think you'll make it to May!!!"  And my favorite so far, "Wow, are you having the baby TODAY?!!!"  But I'll take the "you're so big" words all day long, because in the end, it just reminds me that I have a little baby boy growing inside of me!!!

I'm so glad I got to experience at least one of your pregnancies with you because you are one of the cutest pregnant Moms I've ever known. I love how you love it and really revel in the amazement and wonder of it all.

No wonder you love it... LOOK AT YOU!! You look amazing! I loved it too and I'd love to experience the whole process again! Hopefully you won't be like me and completely forget what it feels like to have those little feet (4 of them!) kicking away :(

Can't wait to see his little face either!!

Pregnancy is really neat, sure I was sick half of it, but the other half was amazing. Its a beautiful thing and it is bittersweet that you are through. Cherish it!
