***SIGH***

Finally, I have been able to change the background. It was driving me a little nuts, that with other things like HORMONES. So, now I will go with the Valentines theme, I know it is a little early, but who knows how much time I will have to do things in the near future.

I continue to be uncomfortable. Sleep is getting harder and harder to come by. Seriously, how many pillows does a pregnant women need to get comfortable??? I guess it probably would help if I didn't sleep between two bed hogs (aka Nate and Kaden), but in the non-pregnant world that is the best place to be :). I don't know if my stomach can take too much more, ok, well my whole body. I am so sore, almost all of the time. I can't get up without regretting thinking it over and then regretting it. However, most of the time I do not have a choice of staying where I am. I wake up almost every hour to roll over, the whole time saying "Ow Ow Ow" and moving little by little. I know, I know, I am complaining, but right now I feel I have every right too : ). I will be in complete shock if Brody isn't close to Kaden's weight, although I don't remember feeling so awful back then, but hey, that was over 4 years ago.

I am so excited to meet this little guy. I am really excited to see Kaden with him. I think he is going to do very well with him. I am nervous about making sure that Kaden feels loved and not left out. Nate is busy with building the house right now, so I think I will be here with the boys by myself quite a bit, and I just want to make sure that Kaden has enough attention from mommy.

Today, my mom, Kaden and I went shopping for part of the day. We didn't get too much. We actually went to get my birthday present, however I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. We went to a furniture store and looked around. We ended up by the children's furniture and Kaden found a bunkbed, his size. He was able to get on it and off of it by himself. But yes, we have received the furniture you all helped him get (some of you have been asking about it), we just haven't put it up yet because we have decided to wait until we get into the new house. I did remind him that he already has a big boy bed and when we get into the house he will be sleeping in it, which I am excited for but nervous about at the same time.

Other then that, I finally started getting into the "nesting" stage. However, I am so tired and sore all of the time it is hard for me to actually get going. Oh, one day...maybe.

Just think... the end is near! It shouldn't be too much longer until Brody's here. I'm eager to hear how Kaden steps up as big brother and helps take care of the new little one. :o)

hope you get feeling and sleeping better soon! when I was pregnant with my first towards the end i was really uncomfortable so I started putting a pillow completely under my side and belly and another between my legs when i slept and it seemed to help me- but the bed was crowded with my pillows everywhere.
i bet kaden will be great with him!

I remember those days. I couldn't get enough sleep and was falling asleep all the time. Get plenty of rest. Can't wait to see pictures of Kaden with Brody.

My babies werent quite as big as Kaden was but I know how miserable you can get for sure. Never a comfortable place to lay...oh I remember those so days.
kaden will do so well with the baby..he is such a loving little guy. he will be a big help.
Did realize you were building a house...nothing like adding a little more stress on you. Building is crazy sometimes, especially if you are doing most of it.
I am thinking of you....hang in there, just a short time and you can hold your little baby (or full grown toddler at 10 pounds. :)

It's almost over. I know how exhausting it is and you really didnt have a very long time for your body to recoup from having Ava. I know the more pregnancies that a person has, the harder it is on thier body. Each one gets a little harder, a little more uncomfortable and more tiring. I barely made it through my forth pregnancy.

I cant wait for Brody to get here. You guys make the prettiest babies and I know he is going to be a little charmer just like Kaden.

I'm thinking of you often and pray that this gets over quick for you and you can meet your new litlle guy. I just know by reading about Kaden he will be the best big brother ever!

PS...I had no clue you guys were building a house. How exciting!

Caden said...

You're on the home stretch!
Just think that the more uncomfortable you are, the closer you're getting! That can only be a good thing. :)

When is your due date again? I can't find it or remember!

My Three Sons said...

I hope that you start feeling better soon. Tell Nate and Kaden to give you lots of massages and see if that helps any. Carson came a month early but I remember how uncomfortable he was during those last few weeks. Your almost there....

I have been thinking about you a lot lately and I'm glad everything is going great.

I'm so sorry. I hope you're feeling better. I ended up having to sleep in the recliner at the end of my pregancy because I was so uncomfortable.

Sorry I haven't commented for a while. I've been in total depression phase with the weather and I haven't wanted to do anything. Loves...
