Sitting and Wishing and Hoping...

Any day now! That's what my doctor said! I had an appointment on Tuesday and he seems to think that I'll go into labor before my appointment next Monday. We'll see though!

Alec took this picture of me at 38 weeks. It's kinda blurry and it was super sunny so I don't have any eyes. I have definitely "dropped." It's a good thing that I'm not working anymore because I only have a few shirts that fit me now.

This is the best investment Alec and I have made since we got married...
This fan has saved both of our lives. We live in a basement apartment with no air conditioning. It actually stays fairly cool down here for most of the year, but between me being pregnant and July and August bringing 100 degree temperatures, we had to find a way to make it bearable. We have it on in the living room whenever we're home, and then we move it to the bedroom when we sleep. Even with the fan, I usually wake up sweating. And I only sleep with the top sheet! I can't wait for this oven to finally turn off!!

For now, we're just waiting... I can't believe that it was 9 months ago when we found out I was pregnant!! I took a total of 4 of these tests and I still didn't believe it until I went to the health center and took a test at the lab there. We can't wait to meet her!! She just needs to hurry up and decide to leave my warm little (or big, rather) oven!


  1. Sorry to tell you the oven doesn't turn off. It just changes positions. Melinda was quite the little heater and now she gets all the boys hot, just by standing around. :)

  2. You look so cute! Don't you hate it when you run out of shirts that fit?? I can totally relate! Nothing fits, but you don't want to go buy more because you're so close to being done... ha ha! I'm so excited for you guys! Can't wait to meet her! :)
