give or take FIVE weeks!

i have really been enjoying these past few weeks of pregnancy. watching my belly get big. watching a little leg or arm push through my belly. feeling the different body parts push against my belly.

however, knowing that in just five weeks this little baby can be here is very overwhelming. simply because the life i have now is going to change greatly. i am expecting a huge adjustment with this little person entering our lives. this little baby isn't just going to be a baby with us. it's going to grow into a child. then a teenager. then an adult. this person will be with me for the rest of my life.

i am both nervous and excited. nervous for all the changes to come especially between tim and my relationship with each other (it's been just the two of us and we love our little life together) but excited to add to our family. to share our love we have with each other to another little life.

baby odgers. i am excited to meet you. to bring you into our family. to love you.

four things.

things i have grown to love since being pregnant.

1. mint chocolate chip ice cream (not the green kind) - heart burn has been the death of me over the past few months and i have figured out that a scoop a day keeps the heart burn away.

2. using three pillows at night- one for my head, one for the legs, and one for the belly. it gets a little snug and tight in bed, especially when you throw in tim and the cat.

3. going horizontal- this is what i do around 5 in the evening after teaching all day. for some reason, walking hurts, standing hurts, even sitting hurts... so i just decide to take my body and lay horizontal. after about an hour of this, i feel like a completely different person... like i could run a marathon!

4. handicapped bathroom stalls- recently i have noticed, that i have had great difficulty getting in and out of a regular size stall. i have the hardest time opening and closing the door without banging some part of my body. however, handicapped stalls are phenomenal. i can move all around in there pretty comfortably and leave without a new bruise.

(33 weeks!! Holy Moly! Almost there!)
