1 month to go!

My doctor moved my induction date to April 6th...so now we've only got one month to go! It's absolutely crazy how fast this pregnancy has gone...in just a month I get to meet my little (nameless) dude. I still have a little anxiety over the birth, but then this feeling of confidence washes over me...it's really a cool feeling. After talking about my birth affirmations the last time, my friend Christina sent me a big ole list that I keep close at hand.  I really do believe that it has helped calm my mind! It's amazing what the body can accomplish when the mind has its back Ü.

I feel ginormous...can't reach my toes, so I make up for my ugly toes by painting my girls' (so excited for a pedicure with my momma when she comes into town!), I'm constantly hungry, I have to pee every 5 minutes it seems (this is actually, surprisingly, a new thing, started this week, yay), my hip feels like its gonna pop out of its socket, and I'm constantly hungry Ü...you know, the regular preggo, last month, uncomfortable stuff. BUT...good news! It's only a month. And then the REAL fun begins Ü.

TheBump.com says little (nameless) dude is the size of a honeydew (um, yum).  He gets the hiccups a TON, and kicks me like crazy...esp when I have the thought "I haven't felt him in awhile, oh crap"...he then proceeds to make sure I know he's there. Like I could forget!
The hospital I'm delivering at offers this sibling class, its for kids 5 and older...I'm so excited to see if I can get Bella into it. I know she is going to want to help when he's here, it will be neat to see what they try and teach her at this class.

How exciting. And I loved the pics you had hanging in the background on your wall. I so admire your creativity.

SARAH, you look SO GORGEOUS and I just wish I was there so we could be crazily hungry and pee every 5 minutes together (wait---that didn't sound right). I just love seeing your baby bump!

Anyway, I have to admit I'm hungry all thetime, but it seems like every time I eat something I get the most horrific heartburn that I just want to drown myself in Tums.

So you guys haven't fully decided on a name yet? Or are you is a secret until he gets here?

You look so good Sarah!!! I too wish we could be experiencing this together! We haven't decided on a name either. I have no idea why it's so hard this time except that it's the first boy!! There really aren't as many cute boy names as girls. Just like the clothes:)
And can I just tell you that I think it's soooo cool that he is going to make his entrance on my b-day!!! It's a great day...Jesus' b-day and the day the church was organized!! What can be better:) Love ya.

Oh, and love the pics in the background too and we finally get to see the red couch:) Looks comfy.

No baby name secrets here...we just can't decide. We have a LIST of names, I finally put them on post-its and put them on the cabinet so we could look at them everyday (and James could pull off the ones he doesn't like, lol).

And you like those pictures? lol...to the left or to the right? Cause you know having your 5 year olds artwork taped up on every wall of the house is so IN right now ;) lol.

You are so cute, Sarah! I am so excited for you!

You look so good!!! I am so excited for you two – almost enough to be envious. (Almost!) I’m gonna want to steal that baby as soon as he comes. Just warning ya.

Jennifer said...

I also think you look awesome!! :) Such a cute preggo lady! ;) So exciting that its less than a month!! Woohoo! Love ya!

Janeane said...

You look really great!! And I'm so excited to be coming out... yep, pedicures, here we come!! Can't wait to meet baby boy Kirchmann!

5 and older...what kind of class is that? A class with mommies who only have their kids 5 years apart!! That's crazy! I hope you get Bella into it though. We're thinking about putting the girls in a class like that at our hospital.

cuteness! I can't believe it's almost time! You are not allowed to have him til your shower is finished!

You look great! I had a harder time picking a name for my third baby, too. I can't wait to hear what you choose!
