Here comes baby... only 8 more weeks!

I have been meaning to write down my thoughts for a while about this pregnancy... I am now 32 weeks along and feel like the last 7 months have flown by! Everyone usually says their pregnancies last FOREVER! I dont feel that way... yet anyways... I think I have been very lucky in that I have had a great pregnancy and have hardly felt sick at all! I have been able to keep up with my daily routine and have even been able to continue exercising on most days! I just get more tired a lot quicker than usual but am still able to get in a great 30-45 minute workout in when I go to the gym:)

Overall I have really enjoyed being pregnant, and since entering into the 3rd trimester I think I have been able to enjoy it even more because honestly one of my greatest fears in the 1st and 2nd trimester was just not knowing and not having control over my changing body. And although there is still some fear there, now that I am further along and have managed to pretty much continue to feel like myself it has helped me to relax and enjoy the changes that come:)

We only have 8 more weeks to go! 8 MORE WEEKS!!!! I can hardly believe it. and quite honestly I feel SO not ready! Dont get me wrong I am SO excited to see our sweet little girl, see what she looks like, hold her and watch her daddy hold and kiss her :) (He is going to be the best dad ever and so cute with her I know it!) But I am still terrified. How am I ever suppose to prepare myself to all the sudden one day be a mom. I feel pretty dang clueless and I am nervous about having someone that depends on me 24 hours a day. Everyone reassures me that things will just click and I will know what to do... but... I'm still not so sure. But whether or not we're ready, I know this little one is on her way! she is growing everyday and is getting stronger and more active! She is going to come so soon and I pray that I can be the best mom to her that I am capable of :)

  1. Nicole,
    I LOVE it when you update your blog! A few are so beautiful pregnant, I mean, really beautiful! Also, I am so impressed that you work out everyday! I always gave myself a pass when I was pregnant, you know, I was making a baby and that was enough of a work out for me...haha:) However, that is probably why you look like the girl who is on the cover of a pregnancy magazine with your perfectly tiny round baby bump and toned arms, and well.... I never did...haha:)*
    Womens Conference was so fun, I am so happy your mom & sisters joined us. You have such a great family!! The shower was fun to plan, but it was so nice to have everyones help in putting it together & getting everything ready. You have so many people who love you so much!
    and Lastly, I can't wait to meet your sweet little girl! She is going to be just as lovely as her momma. I have no doubt that you are going to be THE BEST mom. It is just who you are, your kind and gentle heart that cares so much for others tells that about you, you were made for this & you are going to be a natural at this mommy business stuff. :)
