34 weeks:: 6 weeks left!

This week has flown by for us here. I started the week off with a Doctors appointment on Monday morning. Everything checked out ok, we're not dilated yet which is good cause she's needs to cook in there a few more weeks till she's full term. But, I've decided I'd like her to come a week early. We start going to the doctor every week now, so I have another appointment next Monday.

Tuesday, I finished up the changing pad cover. The last project that I wanted to accomplish in her nursery. So glad the nursery is done now.

Today, Orion and I had a little date. We went to Desert Ridge [a shopping center here] grabbed some Starbucks and sat in the courtyard and talked. It was such a beautiful day, so we had to take advantage of it. It was awesome. I love spending time together like that, spending little money or none at all and making it about each other.

Orion has become increasingly helpful over the last couple weeks. I love how involved he is and how much he wants to help me during this pregnancy, I'm so great ful.

I've been feeling more and more tired these last two weeks. I feel like I can barely get out of bed sometimes since I'm having a hard time moving around freely these days!

Sunday, I'm looking forward to my baby shower here in Arizona with my church family.

Can't believe how fast this time is flying by. It's amazing, when you start this process you think 9 months is going to go by slowly or you think 9 months is a really long time. But, the Lord has a method to his madness. He knows we women need 9 months to prepare and take it all in. I've been great ful to have these 9 months for just that reason, but now I am ready and excited for her to get here.
The video below, is a quick video of her kicking. I finally was able to get her to kick on camera for us. She starts in right away moving towards the left, you have to watch closely. Enjoy!
