Okay, so this is me about ready to pop!  My 4th pregnancy and 37 weeks today! According to Babycenter - that is considered full term!  My actual due date is May 13th.  My three previous pregnancies I delivered at about 39 weeks.  I've been fortunate I haven't had to go past my due date.  I'm hoping this baby is about the same, if  he wants to come at 38 weeks that will be okay by me, just hope he doesn't decide to be the first to go past my due date.  I am already feeling ever so tired, swollen, achy and heavy and looking forward to feeling 'light' once again.  The pregnancy has gone by pretty fast, which I guess is normal when you have 3 other kids your looking after.  We've had two great baby shower's and I just recently finished the nursery that Alexa and this new little one will be sharing. I am also almost done packing our hospital bag.  

On another note, yesterday, April 21, was our: 

10 YEAR Wedding Anniversary! 

We cannot believe how fast time has gone by.  I remember when I was getting married I didn't comprehend how you could love the person you were marrying anymore than you did on that day {as you were obviously so in love!} but now I clearly understand it.  That is just the beginning and as time passes and you make new memories, you have children, you share in each other's lives, you see the other persons love in action, you share good times and bad times, you just fall more and more in love with that person everyday.  That is how I feel about my hubby.  I have seen him become a wonderful husband, father and even better person.  I am proud to be his wife.  He is what a true man should be.  And I am ever grateful and thankful to have him in my life, now and forever.

Okay, so after making myself cry ... sniff ...  last year we had said we would be doing something special for our ten year anniversary because we had never left our kids to go anywhere in 10 years {except hospital stays}!  In the last year, our older kids have had a couple impromptu sleep overs at cousins or grandmas house but we have always still had Alexa, hence we never did any going out.  We had agreed for our ten year anniversary and now that Alexa could communicate her needs well and doing well health wise, it was time for us to ~  GASP! ~  have a vacation by ourselves!  But as you remember in the beginning of this blog post - we are having a baby like in 2 weeks, lol!  At that time, we didn't realize this would be the case.  I can hardly walk anymore, I mostly waddle, I am so swollen I can hardly bend, I almost fell over like light post the other day and I can't even celebrate with a nice glass of wine or margarita! I sound like no fun but thankfully my hubby is still willing to take me on a 'babymooniversary'! Baby Moon's are all the rage for first time parents wanting one last hurrah before baby comes, which is what were trying to do {except with 3 kids at home} and a 10 year anniversary celebration.

So we rented ourselves a nice hotel suite!  I am so looking forward to just being in the pool {floating} so I can't feel my weight lol! and just resting by the pool, some quiet romantic dinners, uninterrupted conversation with my love, sleeping in and well ... maybe even getting this labor party started.  =)


  1. Happy 10th year weeding anniversary to both of you and congratulation to the coming baby ;-). What are you gonna name her/him?

    What a beautiful family you have and I am so proud of you guys for getting away for a night, I hope its a fabulous time of rest and connecting!

  3. Happy Anniversary! For our 10 year I wanted to be Hawaii but we didn't feel comfortable leaving the children especially with Jacob being so little. Maybe for our 15th.
    Good luck with the last couple of weeks of your pregnancy. Looking forward to seeing photos of your new addition!
