39 weeks!

39 weeks.  It's about time I share our 35 week maternity photos, isn't it? 

Part of me can't believe we're almost there, the other part is so ready for this pregnancy to be over.  It's been such a roller coaster!  

Phoebe has been pretty stubborn during ultrasounds and because of our high risk pregnancy with Ellia, our OB has kept a close eye.  We've had an abundance of ultrasounds, none of which have revealed our sweet babes face!  She's either turned away or has her hands covering most her face, little stinker!  We do know she has an oval head, unlike her brother and sister.  Babe might be a cone head just like her mama ;)

Our best ultrasound image.  Profile and she's sucking her thumb
Despite of my lack of mobility, I actually feel pretty good!  Phoebe was burrowed down in my pelvis for the majority of our pregnancy, causing severe discomfort, but as soon as we hit 37 weeks she decided to bounce on up.  Clearly she likes to do things her own way ;) 

While I'm definitely feeling better physically, hormones are giving me a run for my money.  I've been far more emotional this pregnancy than I was with either Beckett or Ellia.  Tears over e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  I cannot even listen to the end of the movie, "Storks," I immediately start bawling!  

Beckett and Ellia are both due to start school next week, coincidently, on our due date.  Ellia's starting her second year of Pre-k and Beckett's headed into Kindergarten!  The amount of change headed our way is so exciting, but also enough to send my head into a spin.  These next few weeks are going to be full of chaos, but the most wonderful kind! 

Both kids are beyond excited to meet their baby sister.  They smother my belly in hugs and kisses and absolutely LOVE feeling her movements!  For the past month, Beckett has asked every day if today is the day we get to meet Phoebe.  Being able to share these sweet moments and excitement with the kids has made this pregnancy so so special! 

It's only fitting that my birks made it into this photo haha they've been my shoe of choice all pregnancy!

  1. Hello, these photos are lovely! Could you tell me please where you got your dress from? I'm actually getting married and I'll be 35 weeks pregnant and this dress looks perfect. Thank you �� Claire
