34 Weeks

Best moment this week: Spending time with my Mom for her birthday and catching up with my friend Kendra!
Maternity Clothes: My dresses came in from Asos, very happy with them!
Gimme Gimme: Vanilla ice cream with strawberries, bananas and walnuts
Total weight gain: 12lbs
Sleep: It's alright as long as I don't lay down immediately after eating, the reflux is too much to bare
What I miss: not pregnant nose!! Don't scroll up....I see you!
My belly: I'm going to miss her being with me all the time :( 
Belly button: What other way could I possibly describe OUT?
This weeks mood: GOD is in control and he is proving it
Looking forward to: EEeekkk.....Maternity shoot on Friday, Baby Shower on Saturday!!!!
Weekly wisdom: I wasn't sure if I was going to share our recent scare/disappointment but I figured this comes along with the territory of blogging my pregnancy. Things don't always go the way you planned or hoped they would and I knew this, but did I really??!! My doctor is concerned that I have IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction) so he would like to induce me at 38 weeks :( This is the last thing I wanted to hear. If I had my way I wanted to have a birth with NO interventions and NO medications, I was pretty adamant about it. I truly trust my doctor and his judgement. But ultimately I trust God above all so if this is his way of making sure our baby girl comes into this world safely I will do whatever it takes even if it's not how I envisioned it. My faith will not waver and I will continue to trust and believe that he will answer our prayers for a healthy and happy baby, and for my safety.  I will keep you all posted!
Gender: Daddy's GIRL
Symptoms: Seeing stars, this is a new one!! The sciatica was out of control, had a really bad day at work
Movement: Not as much kicking now that she doesn't have much room but still lots of big movements
Nursery Update: So EXCITED to finish all the final details

Elle is the size of a cantaloupe (a really small one).

Love you Ken!!!

I totally understand where you're coming from! I had a huge scare during my pregnancy as well, and it caused me to realize that the plans we have for ourselves don't always align with God's plan for us! I am praying for a healthy delivery and healthy baby girl! God knows the desires of your heart! :) Hang in there girl, it's almost time to meet your little princess!
