Thankful for 37 Weeks

(I’m sorry I haven’t wrote in a while- I’ll be better, I promise!)

I cannot believe I’m less than a month away from having my baby! I honestly just can’t believe it. It seems like just yesterday when I asked my husband, “Are you ready to have kids yet?!” 
And here we are- just weeks away from having our first baby and starting our new family together! 
I’ve had an incredibly easy pregnancy which is a huge blessing and something I’m very thankful for- but I am so done. I’m so uncomfortable. All those pregnant mama’s out there who reach this point know what I mean- it gets uncomfortable to walk, sit, sleep, tie your shoes (impossible!) bend over, ect. You get to a point where you are bigger than you’ve ever been before you and feel utterly horrible. That would be me. Huge and uncomfortable and so excited to just see my baby! 
I have been walking-  er I mean, waddling a lot, doing squats, butterfly stretches, and bouncing on the exercise ball to get this baby ready for delivery.  Is it doing anything? I have no idea, but my doctor says ” don’t give up,” so I won’t give up till delivery time!
Even though I’m uncomfortable I am also so very thankful to be pregnant. I truly am. I’m grateful that I have a healthy baby inside me, that I’m healthy myself, and that my baby is growing and doing well. I thank God for that. 
Anyways-How are all the other pregnant mom’s doing out there?
