#2: Week 37.

{Week 36, Easter Sunday! Week 37, ready to pop!}

Well we've reached another milestone... Rylin is now term. I can't believe that we are a short 3 weeks, give or take a little, from meeting our first baby girl. Big news is that I had an appointment last Thursday and found out stubborn little girl is breech and is not cooperating for mommy. So this week I am doing some exercises in an attempt to flip her accompanied by lots of prayers. Doctor Samples will check me again on this coming Thursday and if she is still breech we will schedule a c-section for week 39 {TWO WEEKS AWAY /:}. I suppose there is little chance for her to flip but really you just never know. I'm taking comfort in knowing that whatever is meant to happen will... thankful for a God who is completely in control. So, how I feel about it... positives: scheduled delivery without any laboring, can plan for Cameron easier since it's planned, quicker than labor (no long waits at the hospital for family)... negatives: surgery rather than "delivery," something new and different and not what I know, more difficult recovery, and would have to look at attempting a VBAC with my next delivery. I'm sure there's much more that I'm missing and I know people that have been through it would have a lot to say that I didn't cover. So I will go back on Thursday and we will go from there!


Pregnancy wise, things are going well... just getting big and feeling worn out. I'd say things are about the same as the past few weeks. My dresses are getting shorter, pants a little tighter, and shirts a little snugger. Really doing alright besides the uncomfortableness of being huge. My rings are STILL ON and I'm still pretty pumped about that! 

I only have two days of Stroller Strides left and I'm pretty bummed about that besides the fact that it leaves me exhausted and sore. But on a happier note my sweet workout girls threw me a sweet diaper/wipes shower last Friday!! I was so surprised and blessed by these sweet girls!

#2: Week 35.

{33 1/2 weeks. Destin, FL}
{Week 35}
I kid, I kid... but this picture is hysterical. 
So it's been quite some time since I last updated on the blog. Things are moving fast and time is flying even faster. If you can't tell I've grown quite a bit in the last few weeks. Here's two more belly pics... one with my SIL Meaghan and the other with my SIL in Katherine who are both due with another addition to the fam in Septemeber!!

So pregnancy update. I feel huge and want to have this baby ASAP. Okay, but not really. Maybe 3 more weeks would be good! {haha} Things are continuing pretty smoothly. On the eating front, I've got the munchies basically all the time. Chicken coming from my kitchen is still pretty much a no go... which Matthew is about to kill me over. Not really, but it does make dinner time difficult! Sleeping is rough. Sleeping on my left side is my least favorite so every time I wake up I've moved and I have to roll my big belly back to my left. Just in this last week I've had to make around 3 trips to the bathroom every night. Little miss Rylin must be sitting on my bladder! Thankful for no insomnia once again so far though! I've had what seems like WAY more braxton hicks thus far compared to last pregnancy. They are very uncomfortable but nothing painful of course! Oh, and something I'm pretty pumped about... STILL wearing my wedding rings! I looked back and last pregnancy I took it off around 33 weeks I believe! {Woohoo!} I went on a little shopping spree this past week and bought some pink for my little girl's room. It's odd to not be setting up her room since we won't move her into the nursery until I'm ready to move her out of our room and to upstairs/move Cameron to a big boy bed! But I do want to be prepared and have stuff ready for an easy transition! I still continue to be super sore after working out and exercising. I'm hoping it will pay off after she's born since it's made this pregnancy significantly more difficult than the last. I will go to the doctor next week {at 36 weeks} and Dr. Samples will check me and see if any signs of labor have started! Fingers crossed!!

Until next time, maybe I'll be more frequently since I'm only a short 5 weeks away from our due date :)
