Two more weeks exactly until my due date.  I know it is not good to get my hopes up, but I think it will be sooner.  The primary threw a great baby shower for me and the baby yesterday, thanks everyone!  But now that that is over I really don't have anything else planned before I have the baby.  I am looking at the calender right now and all I have in between now and the 15th is two doctors appointments and one hospital appointment (our hospital wants you to come early to fill out paperwork).  Mothers day is in there somewhere too but wouldn't it be great if I could have the baby on or before mothers day.

I felt a couple contractions last night at around 11 when Bob and I were going to bed and started getting really worried/nervous.  I couldn't stop remembering what it was like to have the previous babies.  Both labors went well, but it does take a little while before you actually get the epidural and I don't like to wait while in pain.  plus there are all those needles and IVs.  I also don't want to be up all night in labor.  I'm not really scared when it comes to those sorts of things but its not something I would choose to do with my spare time.  After a few minutes Bob calmed me down and we both fell asleep.  This last part of the pregnancy is so hard because I am ready to have the baby yet at the same time scared to have the baby.    It is all so unpredictable, it can happen any time in the next three weeks and anything can happen.
These are my favorite maternity pictures we (bob and I) took.
This could be my last time being pregnant so I thought it was about time that I got some nice pictures of what I look like pregnant.

Oh and by the way, don't look up maternity photos online to get good posing ideas.  For some reason everyone thinks you should take your cloths off to take pregnancy pictures.  Even google strict search does not block everything.

Doranda, I didnt even know you were pregnant again until last week! Nor did I know you had a blog about your family! It's a nice way to keep up with whats going on way over there! I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well. Your pictures are beautiful. Question though, you said this could be your last pregnancy, meaning you might stop at 3 children depending on how well things go taking care of 3 under the age of 3? Don't want to go big like Grandma or your mom? Just curious!

I am living vicariously through you. I am so excited for you guys! And like I mentioned you are more than welcome to have your kids spend the night IF you think Baby Woestman wants to give you a late night.
