fat face


{picture taken 12 days ago at 36 weeks}

brett tells me i'm not fat, i'm just pregnant.
& that there IS a difference.
this is true & i need to remember that in only a
few weeks my body will be mine again.
i'm grateful for my fat face, stretch marks & swollen extremities.
really, i am.  

the thought of not being pregnant any more makes me
both sad & happy at the same time.
i'm ready for my body back but i love being pregnant.
there is something so miraculous about a little 8 cell embryo
growing into a fully developed tiny person inside of you.

she is moving like crazy & i love when i can show
other people when my stomach is about to burst open from movement.
their face is alway priceless.
shocked that there really is something causing
my stomach to become deformed for 9 months.

i'm anxious for the next few weeks to go by but am even more
unsettled about what is happening bright & early tomorrow morning.
tomorrow is the big "flip". we go into utah valley at 8:45 &
will pray my fluids allow for her to be flipped. & if they are high
enough, that the flip will be a success. if her vitals dip & she becomes
too stressed, they will deliver her by emergency c-section.
let's pray that does NOT happen. i hope i can be brave.

wish me luck!! and i'll keep you posted.

Good luck! They tried to flip Ethan (my first) no such luck, the cord was wrapped around his neck :( So I had a c-section with him. Either way you will be fine! Can't wait to hear what happened!

I can totally relate to how you feel. I'm so glad my sweet baby is here, but sometimes I miss being pregnant. I'm so glad all went well with the flip and your sweet babe is here!
