29 weeks- an update

Hey Everyone. Happy 2013! I am going to start a new blog, but since that hasn't happened yet, I thought it would be good to document some of this pregnancy. I had thought that I would doing a weekly picture and all that, but then I remembered I don't love how I look pregnant. :-) However, since this is my last pregnancy, I did want some record of it. So, here is something I read on the blog of a college friend of mine who I miss dearly! (Thanks Leah!)

Weight Gain? 30 lbs. Yep, I am on my way to gaining more than any other pregnancy. Awesome. Also, I have been chastised by 2 doctors. Also awesome. I am attempting to slow this down by staying away from sugar and starting to walk with a couple of friends. I think it is helping. :-) At least mentally it is.
Stretch Marks? Can't tell. I don't pay enough attention to detail. 
Sleep? When I go to bed early, I definitely feel a difference. The nice thing is, I am at a point I can take naps thanks to a 5 1/2 year old who goes to kindergarten in the morning and is willing to play video games in the afternoon. 
Best Moment So Far? Telling the kids we were pregnant again and that the baby is healthy. Bryce had prayed for a baby every night after the miscarriage. Now he prays the baby is healthy. So cute.
Movement? All the time!! I love this! The kids love watching the kicks on my belly. I will miss this part the most.
What I miss? Running. I crave a good, long distance run. I watch others in envy. I am already planning my races for the year. It is a sickness, I know. 
What I’m looking forward to? The baby. :-) Only 10 weeks to go. I can do it!
Milestones?  Shocking the doctor by getting pregnant without medical intervention. No bleeding. 
Emotions? Nervous to start all over and hoping that Jeff enjoys having a baby around again. Enjoying having older kids for this pregnancy. They are so much more involved and always ask me how I am doing. Bryce takes off my boots for me. I love it! I can't wait to meet our little man. 
Maternity Clothes? Oh yeah!! Just had to get some new ones because I am growing out of other ones. Awesome. :-)
