I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Final Belly Shot. 40 weeks

40 weeks today.
152 pounds.
32 pounds gained.
Same as the last two children.
I'm ready. Ready and excited. O.K not for the whole birthing part, but I'm ready. I don't want to rush it though. Now I just keep waiting for these braxton hicks to become more and more painful.
So far they come and go depending on what I'm doing. I think it is just my body telling me to slow down and rest.
CAN'T be any longer than two weeks now! Right??

Happy due date Alyson! Enjoy every moment.

I still miss being pregnant. And this is almost two years later!

She will be worth the wait!

I was so desperate for Mahone to come that I walked around the block I am sure 50 times because when I was walkng I was finally feeling some sort of regular contraction... It was only when I actually rested-and went to the movies, that my water broke(that is my pattern-water breaking and then contractions)Then I was upset that I didn't take the time to rest up that day... rest is the best best plan!!!

It came...and went. :)

But, yes, trust that your body will do it's thing within the next two weeks...and try to do lots of walking, red raspberry leaf tea, other "stuff" ;o) to encourage yourself along. It WILL happen! :)
