30 weeks. 210 days. 5040 hours.

My, oh me, oh my. Boy, how time flies when you’re having fun … and having a baby.    

It still blows my mind everyday to think that there is a little person in there.   Pregnancy has truly been a crazy/cool/weird/exciting experience.  

Just a Few of the Things I have Enjoyed:

- all the little kicks/jabs letting me know this is all real

- how in love Mitchell is already with this little baby

- the way Mitchell looks, touches, and talks to my stomach

- thinking about all the possible Mitchell/Erin physical characteristic combinations

- talking to her on the way to work

Just a Few of the Things I Could do Without:

- this little baby likes to use my bladder as a punching bag

- the added poundage … I’m not stressing too much, after all I’m no rookie when it comes to weight loss.

- the fact that women feel the need to tell me their birthing horror stories

Honestly, I can’t complain at all.  This has been a huge blessing and miracle in our lives. 

Bring on the baby!

Wow, Erin, it is so fun to see you pregnant. You look super chic and cute. I love all those pictures. And I am so happy you are enjoying the experience! I always appreciate a good shout-out for pregnancy. It's not all roses, but it sure is wonderful. So excited for our new niece...a mini-Mitchell/Erin creation. Love you guys!

How cute are you in that black and white striped dress? You've definitely got style, even pregnant! I'm so glad to hear that pregnancy hasn't been too rough of a road for you! Let me tell ya, I am sure enjoying the capacity to go a couple hours without the need for a bathroom break now that there's no baby doing a headstand on my bladder! And gratefully, I have no birthing horror stories to share with you. Just awesome, peaceful, incredibly spiritual moments where you really feel the power that is in motherhood! Go birth that hippo! :)
