34 weeks- Growing a Giant... :)

34 weeks pregnant.  I cannot believe that this is really happening!  It's starting to sink in as I wash our infant carseat and put away our diapers from my shower and sterilize the dreaded breast pump.  A baby is well on the way and we are going to be a family of 4.

I worry daily that I won't be a good enough mom to two kids.  I worry that Paisley will have a rough transition.  It makes me sad that she won't remember the almost 2 years that we've had by ourselves to bond.  And I'm terrified about how I'll handle the sleep deprivation this time.

But I'm equally as excited to see this baby's face.  And to give Paisley a sibling that she will hopefully grow to adore.  And to feel that our family is complete finally.  Oh, and to be able to walk across a room without being winded or lift my child without having to heave her over the mountainous bump.

The belly is seriously growing larger EVERY single day.  I'd be a liar if I didn't admit that I'm terrified about how this child can grow 5 more weeks in there!!!

HUGE belly
I'm literally as big at 34 weeks as I was full-term with Paisley.  My maternity clothes are now down to about 3 brave shirts and 2 sundresses that are trying desperately to help me out for another month.  Yet, I've only gained 26 pounds which is exactly the same weight gain I'd had with Paisley at this point.  This time it's just traveling directly to my ginormous belly and feeding this champion eater. 

I cannot believe that I only have 5 more weeks at most until this baby will be home with us.  That's 35 days, people!  And as much as I'd like to continue this pregnancy, I have a feeling my belly would eventually just bust open from the growth inside!

  2. She might not have specific memories of just the 2 of you, but the bonding will be irreplaceable. So no, she might not remember all the mornings of cuddles in bed with just mommy and/or daddy, but her heart will know because of the bond you have established these 2 years!

    Can't WAIT to see pics of baby deuce :)
