Nine Months of The Bump

There is only one more sleep until we finally meet Thing 4, and we are beyond excited here at Shenanigans Inc. We have spent the day cleaning the house, doing the laundry, and putting everything back in order. My goal is to exhaust everyone so that we can manage to get some sleep before the big day tomorrow, but my attempts may be futile. Really? How will any of us be able to sleep knowing that in a matter of hours Thing 4 is due to arrive. HOURS! I can not believe we are now counting the hours . . . . eeeep!

I thought it may be fun to take this time to showcase the progression of my baby bump since after tomorrow it will be gone, and I will not be so eager to show off my belly anymore . . . tee hee! I had to laugh when I looked at my earlier photos of the bump because there really isn't anything there, but I was so proud of it nonetheless. This pregnancy has been an amazing journey for me, and I look forward to the even greater journey of raising Thing 4 and getting to know this amazing person Heavenly Father has blessed our family with. Wish us luck!

End of March 2013 - We had just found out about the pregnancy, and I was terrified that it would not go any further. I remember playing this game of volleyball with my family. Mr. Level-Headed was a nervous wreck that the ball would hit my stomach and so he would dive for all the incoming shots . . . tee hee! He is such a sweetie!

April - No photos - I felt miserable but I was also convinced I was would lose the baby at any moment and so I refused to get excited. This was probably one of the hardest months of my life . . . blech!

May 2013 - Three Months Pregnant 

As the belly grew, I started to become hopeful.

I could finally breathe a sigh of relief after our 12 week ultrasound because there was indeed a baby within me and that baby's heart was  beating.  Hooray!

12 weeks

June 2013 - Four Months Pregnant


And another sneak peek at Thing 4:

July - Five Months Pregnant

As if being pregnant wasn't awesome enough, I was able to share this pregnancy with my baby sister, Emily, who is only two weeks behind me. Little "Bun" and "Thing 4" are going to be the best of buddies.

August - Six Months Pregnant

September 2013 - Seven Months Pregnant

October - Eight Months Pregnant

And the countdown begins:

34 weeks

35 weeks

November 2013 - Nine Months Pregnant

And finally, my last baby bump shot of Thing 4 . . . 

 I can't believe that starting tomorrow I will get to post actual photos of my baby. I truly am one very blessed mama.

Please keep us in your prayers.
