Pregnancy Post

So I NEVER get pictures taken of myself, but for some reason I got this feeling that I really needed to get some maternity pictures taken. So here are a few of the edited ones!

At my 36 week ultrasound they informed me that I had a higher amount of amniotic fluid then normal. I guess I am supposed to be at 12 but I am at 20. This explains A LOT of why I am so much more uncomfortable with this pregnancy vs. the other 3. My midwife didn't seem too worried though. I am dilated almost 2 and about 50% effaced. I have been having contractions every night so I think I have to be making some progress. With my last pregnancy I dilated 1cm every week and ended up having him when I was 39 weeks.

I am feeling like this baby is going to be here soon. I am 36w 5d right now. I have all the signs of pending labor so crossing my fingers it will be soon! My next appointment is on Friday the 28th and I am hoping I have progressed. Nothing worse than having contractions for no reason!

One thing I wanted to say is that I am very grateful for my husband Jesse. I don't know what I would do without him. I feel very blessed to have him working from home. Let me tell you a little about my days right now with him. I don't sleep good at night so Jesse wakes up with the kids and lets me sleep for as long as I need. He then makes me lunch(makes the kids lunch too of course), we eat together, then I try to get some cleaning or organizing done which is hard but I fight through the pain(sciatic nerve). By the evening I am done and can't move so Jesse takes over the dinner, homework, guitar lessons, dance classes, everything! He puts the kids to bed and we spend some time together. I would probably have had a nervous breakdown by now if it wasn't for him. Not sure if he will read this but THANK YOU JESSE! I love you!

It's been over a year...wow.

Okay so in the past year there have been birthdays, Disneyland trips, weddings, photoshoots, school, work, etc. The biggest bit of news though is that we are expecting baby number 4 due March 19th 2014! Oh and he's a BOY.
That is his foot by his face, apparently he is very flexable.
We love him already and can't wait till he is here! Especially me...This is the most uncomfortable pregnancy for me. Apparently I have more amniotic fluid then usual so I am HUGE even though I still have around 4 weeks to go. My back is killing me and I have sciatic nerve pain. I have contractions almost every night so hopefully I will have him soon.

Parker is 3 now! He is a handful but what 3 year old isn't? We love just listening to the things he has to say and wonder, "Where on earth did he learn THAT?!". He is potty trained, he loves Mickey, and he loves playing with his sisters. I am excited that he will have a little brother soon.

Lacee is our petite, independent, spunky, silly 4 year old. She is in preschool which she LOVES but she is definitely ready for kindergarten. I know I am going to have my hands full when she's in her teens because she already does whatever she wants even when we tell her no. OH and she already rolls her eyes at us. What 4 year old rolls their eyes when asked to do something?!? lol

Lyla just turned 7 and I still can't believe it. She is in 1st grade and doing great. Jesse just started teaching her guitar and she loves it. She has been losing teeth left and right and gets very excited when she gets a dollar from the tooth fairy. Lyla has also just started her own blog called Lylasworld.com.

That is all for now. Hopefully I will post an update again before the year is over haha.
