a very happy february

Well, as you all know from my last several posts, the last few months, (well, years, but we won't go that far back) have been very difficult. I don't need to go into all the gory details of my life, but I will say february will have a very bright spot. Tomorrow is the day we get to meet our little baby!!! As I sit here on my last full day of being pregnant, EVER, (yes I am taking care of buisness after this one) I am trying to soak it all in. This pregnancy has been so difficult I haven't really been able to enjoy much of it. So as I sat here rubbing my big belly and getting kicked back, I realize I will miss that a lot. This little guy has been a mover and a shaker, and it has been fun to be the one to experience that. I also will miss my curly hair, I don't know how it happened but my very straight hair became naturally curly with this pregnancy. The other positive thing is, is that since I became pregnant, a lot of my allergies to food has gone away, I have been able to enjoy some fruit, and some foods with eggs in them, it has been wonderful! so thank you baby for helping me out a bit!  I have been so busy especially since we moved, then in the last month and a half with back labor pains, and migraines that won't go away,  that I haven't had a chance to really think about actually bringing home this baby. And the fact that there will be a baby, I did not just get fat!! sometimes it is a little overwhelming to consider the fact that tomorrow I will be holding my baby. I am so excited. I am really really looking forward to this. ( and a nice peaceful hospital stay while brian takes care of the other kids) with older kids I think in terms of school, and to think that I get the kids off to school tomorrow, then have a baby, come home the next day, but make sure I am home by 1;00 so we can pick the kids up from school, then welcome to life with 6 kids. It will be crazy from there. But I think I am ready. But ready or not here he comes!!! And for those of you who have been following my babys progress, at the amnio yesterday, then did the ultrasound, and think he is right around 6 lbs. we will see how close they are :) They figure that he hasn't grown past 34 weeks, (so yea he would have been a big baby if he kept growing) so its time. I will hopefully be able to post soon so you can all meet our little one!!! thanks for all our love and support.
(sorry if this is a little back and forth, I have a lot on my mind today)
