About 6 weeks to go till baby arrives!!

You better believe I am counting down the days till delivery!  I am getting so excited about meeting our new daughter.  Wow, another little girl in the house.  I wonder what she'll look like and how big she'll be.  My other girls were 7 lbs 6 oz, and 7 lbs 3 oz.  My boys with the exception of my first boy (6 lbs 10 oz--born two weeks early), were all in the the 8 lb range.  With the biggest being Kole, weighing in at a whopping 8 lbs 12 oz.  I would be fine with any weight.  Well, maybe not in the 9 lbs range.  

I do feel her growing everyday inside me.  I am starting to get a lot of the pelvic, pubic bone pains and it feels like she is hanging low in my womb.  There are days when I feel her way down low like she is about to jump out.  So, yes, my walking and the ability to do lots of housework and such has decreased.  Have I been complaining?  Yes, I admit I have..  Especially in the middle of the night when I have to sloooowwwwllly get out of bed and slowwwwwwllllly walk to the bathroom.  Ouch!!! My bones around my pelvis.....OUCH!!!  I actually walk like a granny to the bathroom---thank God Donnie doesn't have to see this.  And then while walking into the bathroom, I think to myself "Why am I doing this again?"  and "How many more weeks left" or "How many more DAYS left?"  I then walk back to bed and go to sleep.  Oh, and then I have to switch sides.  Another, OUCH!!, OWWW!! moment.  

I have to remind myself, you know this is not that bad and I have had a good pregnancy throughout and say  "Ok, Chris stop complaining!!!  Just STOP"  ...So this is when prayer comes into play. I just declare my scriptures of healing, and say "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me"  I also have been asking the Father to give me the best 6 weeks left to go as possible.  I want to have plenty of energy to care for my growing tribe.   

In just a few days--around 40ish or so I will give birth to a beautiful baby girl.  We can't wait to see her.  I can't wait to dress her in all sorts of cute girl clothes.  It will be fun.  The girls are already saying how they will fix her hair and dress her.  How fun!!!

Well gotta run... I have to finish laundry!!!

Have you tried seeing a chiropractor who has a lot of experience with pregnant women? That made a WORLD of difference for me, with the pubic symphysis pain I had -- which was the worst with my fourth. I went from hobbling around to being (mostly) comfortable and able to move just fine.
Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving an encouraging note. :)
I find it interesting that I can hardly recall how hard the 1st trimester was and when you describe how you are feeling now, well it makes me pause and remember! I am trying not to remember what the last few weeks are like. :) That only makes me begin to think about labor and delivery. Yikes!
I do hope you have an uneventful last few weeks and can find a balance between rest and "nesting" tasks.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
