My Pregnancy

I have always wanted to have professional maternity photos done, but never got around to it with Cameron or Gavin, and time is a tickin' with this one too, so today I decided to play around with it a bit myself. They are not professional by any means, but at least I have them to look back on one day. I've also realized that I haven't really written much about my pregnancy, I hope this is not an indication of the amount of attention this little one will get! I am very fortunate in the fact that my pregnancies are relatively easy, although with each one it seems to get a bit more difficult. With this one my back really bothers me, I have horrible heartburn, and I get a lot of nosebleeds. But I really do love being pregnant and I love this stage when the baby is moving all the time, even when he kicks me in the ribs! My doctor moved my due date up a couple of days to the 17th of April because of how the baby was measuring at my last ultrasound and I plan on being induced about a week before that, so in about 6 weeks we will be parents of three! I must say I am absolutely petrified. All of my friends say that going from two to three is the hardest and my biggest fear is having to run errands and heaven forbid- navigate the swimming pool this summer! Also, the newborn stage is not my favorite, but I do love snuggling a sleeping baby and I am looking forward to that. We've yet to settle on a name for this little guy, but this is pretty characteristic of Jeremy and I. We have a hard time agreeing on names and both of out boys were not named until we were in the hospital. We do have a few that we've been playing around with, but who knows. Jeremy and I both know that being able to have these kids is such a huge blessing and I hope that I can remember that even on the hard days. I feel so lucky to have these little guys in my life!

I got pictures done with this pregnancy and I love it. I am so glad I did so I can remember what I looked like since we are done. You look great!
