Pregnancy Journal: 38 Weeks

 I can't believe I have made it this far! Being this pregnant is a whole new experience for me. I am constantly wondering if different things I am feeling are normal or not since I don't have a previous experience to compare it to. This is also my first time of wondering every day if this is going to be "the day". It makes time go sooooo much slower! I am really tired all the time and sleeping has gotten pretty difficult. I have almost no clothes that fit me anymore and it is starting to really feel like I have this alien body. How do people do this??? I did not have proper respect for pregnant women who make it all the way to their due date or (the horror!!) past. Seriously. They are warriors, cause this is hard!

This is what I see when I look down:
 And if I lean over a little bit and suck in I can sort of see my toes :)
I am also literally the heaviest I have ever been in my entire life, which is a strange feeling. Pretty soon I am going to weigh more than Anthony! I think I need to start closing my eyes when I get on the scale at the doctor's office, because no one needs to see that :)

Haha, I hear ya on the weight thing, with both Dallin and Nolan I never looked at the scale, there was just no point, it could only cause emotional trauma, but the darn nurses would say the weight out loud sometimes, dang it! You seriously look awesome. The sleeping at the end is what was the hardest for me, sorry you're in the middle of it! Only a couple more weeks at the most! We can't wait!!

Oh the few weeks are so hard physically and mentally! Wish I was closer and could help you out! I remember the waiting so well, it's torture! But you get a precious baby at the end and so it makes it worth it:) You look amazing, by the way! So don't let that scale bother you one bit. Gaining weight just means you've got a healthy baby in that belly:) You'll be a mom of two before you know it! Hang in there!:)
