35 weeks

So, it's been a while since I last posted. Lots of stuff has happened. My baby showers are done...I was blessed with so many wonderful gifts! I'm now 35 weeks pregnant. It's so hard to believe that in just a little over a month Avery will be here! The nursery's ready, it turned out just how I imagined! I'll post pictures later. Also, I'm now officially out of work until she's here....back pain. It's been a tough pregnancy but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! The newest issue is not being able to sleep. Well, I guess considering I've always had insomnia it's really not new, but it's becoming increasingly difficult. Oh well. Louis is getting more and more's such a blessing to have such an involved husband! I'll try to start posting more often. We're also going to update our family website soon as well! Please keep praying for Avery Elizabeth!

1st baby shower

Yesterday I had my first baby shower! It was so much fun! I got a ton of really great gifts and was just surrounded by so much love from family and friends! Bringing all of the gifts home and even putting some things together was a bit surreal.....Avery is really going to be here in just 3 short months. So hard to believe and so exciting! Time is flying and my belly is growing (and Avery is continuing to practice her gymnastics floor routine)!!

26 weeks

So the weeks are just flying by! I have my first baby shower this Saturday....I can't wait! Avery is practicing her gymnastics a lot now! She is getting stronger every day. I'm still having a lot of back pain....really more spasms than pain. You take the good with the bad and the good FAR outweighs the bad. I go the the doctor Monday for my next visit and the glucose tolerance test. Should be fun. I am blessed with a wonderful husband who is always available to give me a back rub and who come to every doctor visit without complaint. I love him so much. I can't wait to meet Avery....I already love her so much!

23 Weeks

Well, here goes nothing. Louis and I are expecting a little girl in January. January 16, 2007 to be exact. Hard to believe that 23 weeks have already gone by. Time flies! I feel her move more and more every day and you can now see her kicks just by looking at my belly! It's a bit strange, though...but in a good way. I wouldn't trade it for the world! I grow to love her more every day....I can't wait to meet her! My only complaint is some back pain and unfortunately I know that's only going to get worse. But no matter what she does to my body it is all worth it. So far so good on the weight gain....although this is the only time in your life you get on the scale and it is supposed to go up...and that's just hard for your brain to comprehend so it's still a bit of a shock. My next appointment is October 16.....also have my glucose tolerance test that day so that should be fun! That's the update for now, check out for some additional ultrasound pictures.
