36 Weeks!

It's SO hard to believe I am 9 months pregnant! Honestly, it doesn't feel real.

Classic Hannah Face
I've gained I think (maybe) about 17 or 18 pounds.
I can't remember if i started at 126 lbs or what.
But baby girl is estimated to be about 5 lbs right now.
And she will gain about half a pound a week from now until she's born!

I'm still wearing my regular clothes. I can even wear a pair of my 15 year old sisters shorts (and they don't fit her).
But hey, I'm not complaining.
I finally look pregnant, though! Amazing how it took friggin 36 weeks to get here -_-

I had a doctor's appointment today, and I invited Stacy (from my adoptive couple) to come with me!
My mom came too and got to meet her.
It was such a good experience.
We got another ultrasound, just for Stacy :)
She was so excited. She's never seen an ultrasound before.
I made sure to send her home with pictures of her own!!

I'm a little bit envious, because the pictures were so much better this time!
It's like she knew her future mommy was going to be there.
She was sticking out her tongue when we poked her to turn around so we could get a shot of her face.
We were all laughing.

Sorry about the sucky quality.
Camera phones don't do this photo justice.

She still has those big ol' cheeks.
It's so cute! I made a dang cute baby, if I do say so myself.
But, she's so squished, I feel bad!
Only 4 more weeks though!!

So, baby girl is all healthy and developing perfectly.
I'm doing quite well, also.
Other than having the flu on Friday night. That was horrible.
I was throwing up all night. I seriously was feeling so horrible.
Thank goodness that has past!!

However, it is becoming more and more difficult to get up!
Getting off the couch, or getting out of my car are the worst.
I have to pull myself up with my arms.
Also, the toilet is my new best friend.
I have to pee so much!!
I get up maybe 2 or 3 times during the night.
No bueno.
And my lower back is starting to hurt more and more.

But hey, it's all going to be SO worth it.

I am just in such a good mood lately.
I still have moments where I get kinda depressed about everything, and I tend to tear up a little when I talk about adoption with anyone. But it's nothing I can't handle.
I know it's the right thing for my little girl and that makes it SO much easier for me.

Well, I'm off!
I'll have an emotional post up tomorrow, just to warn you. Haha

Love you guys! Thank you all so much for the support!

  1. Hannahbabe. I think you are amazing. You are such a strong lady and I'm proud of you for making hard decisions. You are a fantastic role model. I will heart you forever. When you are unprego (HA!) we must play Piggie Wanna Motion :) I love you!

  2. I think your amazing! My Aunt gave up a baby in high school? She gave up her son and now we know him cause they looked for each other. (Is yours an open adoption?) Anyway, it was hard for her and now I have a new cousin. Anyway, I'm glad your in a better mood. You look so cute!

  3. I can only hope to look like that when I'm pregnant, it doesn't run in my genes though... You look fantastic! :)
