14 weeks more to go... and counting...

I can't believe that I am in my third trimester of my pregnancy. It really just seems like yesterday that we found out I was even pregnant. I've had it extremely easy as in I haven't gotten sick, gained too much weight, had heartburn or really been extra tired. I have had problems with my lower back hurting (3 hours at church really gets to me, those chairs are so uncomfortable!) but even my lower back hasn't been as bad as some people I know.

So if you've ever heard me complain about my pregnancy, you can just roll your eyes. I try to not complain too much, since the more I am pregnant, the more I am realizing how much I enjoy it and will definately miss it when little miss ashlyn is here. It is just such a neat experience knowing that there is another little spirit with you, at all times, depending on you to protect and nurish them.

well, that said, my dear hubby, Jake, was kind enough to snap a few pics of my growing belly for all to see. I promise, he was a good enough sport to take dozens of pictures, but I am not a good enough sport to show them all to you. I am very picky about any picture I show, of myself, but being pregnant makes me especially sensitive. The pic above is really the only pic that I like, but I do need to show my belly off some more, so that is why I included this pic...

I have started to count down the weeks instead of count up. Its really quiet exciting! I know, for everyone else, 14 more weeks probably seems like a long ways away... but, for me, it seems like its flying by. I have so much to do in those 14 weeks, and so much other stuff going on, that I'm afraid I won't be ready for ashlyn, when she comes!

You look so good when you are pregnant. I wish I had more pictures of me pregnant. Blair didn't take picture. I would tell him to but we never got any. I wish I can say my pregnancy was easy. It was. I didn't get sick. But During the summer it is so hot. and I retained so much water. But I do miss being pregnant. It is a awesome experience. I am so excited for you guys. You guys will be great paretns. I can't wait to meet her. We need to hang out. 927-8710

Sara, you are so beautiful! I'm so excited that you posted these pics! What an adorable little half-basketball you have!! Lol.

Time does seem like it's going by really fast now. I'm not sure I'll be ready for Taylor either. I guess we'll just have to be un-ready together!

I'm so glad you haven't been too sick, either. And I can relate to the 3-hrs at church thing! so few chairs were designed with a prego-mom-to-be in mind!
