One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

One More Week!!

Here they are -- the requested belly pics (38 weeks). I am not sure how much bigger I have gotten the past week, but I know that my discomfort has been steadily increasing. I never experienced any of this with Evelyn...

I feel as if I am carrying "high" and "low" at the same time!! My belly is pushed right up under my bra line and I have constant kicking and movement under my ribcage... and yet I have so much pressure down low and on my bladder, too.

I am no longer doing my gym routine (the elliptical trainer wasn't even an option anymore, my legs would come up and put pressure on my belly) --- it is pretty much down to trying to take long daily walks. After having some bad Braxton-Hicks contractions during a walk the other day I decided that I should always have my cell phone with me, just in case :) Cocoa, Evelyn and I are still doing 2-3 mile loops around the neighborhood. I am a little bit slower these days up the hills though.



As you can see, my belly isn't quite as bruised anymore. Since I am nearing delivery, I had to switch my injections from lovenox to heparin (it leaves your body quicker). This is a good and bad change... the heparin doesn't seem to leave as many bruises, but I have to give the injections twice a day instead of once. Oh well... this will all be over with soon. I am ready to have this baby!!

You are absolutely adorable. I just want to give your belly a pat :)

This boy is definitely growing. I think you look like you are still getting bigger. It is so crazy the difference between carrying Evelyn and Baby Boy V.

7-days left until we all get to meet him.

Your belly is so cute and so tiny! Right at the end with Austin I felt like I was sitting on a bike seat all day long! I hope that the remaining pregnant days aren't too uncomfy!

well, I missed blog-reading for a couple days and you post all kinds of new stuff! you look great. I totally understand the bladder thing--it happened to me both times. I would have to pee twice during a grocery-shopping trip.
