8 weeks and counting

I'm 32 weeks along today. That means in 2 more months-- 8 more weeks-- we'll have another little person join our family. And that time can't come quickly enough. And I'm scared of how quickly that time will come! Eight more weeks of aches and pains, weekly weight gain, not carrying a diaper bag, and "uninterrupted" sleep. Eight more weeks until I'm the mother of five. Eight more weeks to complete the mile-long list of projects I won't have time to work on with a newborn. Eight more weeks to decide on a name. Eight more weeks until I get to see her face, hold her in my arms, and get to know her little personality. Eight more weeks of being pregnant.

Too soon.
And not soon enough.

you look AMAZING - I'm only 26 weeks and I swear we would measure the same!

Kami said...

Time has gone by so fast. I seems like you should only be like 4 months along. You look great though!

Chris said...

You'll be so happy to see her. Another bundle of joy! I hope the time goes by quickly for you though but the aches and pains less and less (wishful thinking huh?lol) Good luck!!

You look amazing for 32 weeks!!!

You described it perfectly. That's how I have felt at the end of my pregnancy's! Good job on finishing your quilts.

It doesn't sound like life is easy. But you are doing an AMAZING job! I too hope the time expands so you can get everything done that you are hoping to do, and that the discomfort subsides dramatically while that happens. Go, Jessi! Go! Fight! Win!

Look at Audra's blog. My comment is the same for you as her. You two must be sister's and you are both handling everything extremely well. You look tiny for this being your 5th baby. Good luck!!

Holy Crap Girl,
You are seriuosly so little. You do not look like you are even really pregnant!! Gee Wiz Darling, I am jealous.
I am so happy for you though. These 32 weeks have gone by way too fast for me. I swear you just announced you were pregnant!
Hang in there, I am sure it will be here before you know it and she will be in your arms... I am jealous!!! Can I just come and stay for a while and be a momma to 5 girls for a bit!??? The other day we went to a baseball game and a family that sat in front of us reminded me of you... They also had 5 girls- Around the same ages as yours and they were all beautiful with blonde hair just like your girls!! It was so much fun to see! :) You are an amazing woman!! Love you!

Okay, I don't know what is more unfair - that you look like that at 32 weeks or that you are still sleeping through the night. I get more sleep with a newborn in the house, than I did pregnant.

Rachel said...

You look amazing!! So teensy!

Enjoy this time. Because once she gets here, you'll have to share her with the world. And for now, she's ALL yours.

Michelle said...

You look great! You look so tiny. Enjoy the next 8 weeks!

Dani said...

I know it doesn't feel this way to you but I can't believe you're already 32 weeks along! Wow! Time flies! But not when you're the one pregnant :) You look really good!

John said...

Holy Cow! I can't believe it is only 8 weeks. Those 32 weeks really flew by for me. That was easy. :)

Hope you are holding in there and the last two months go well.
