37 weeks...

Here is the moment you have all been waiting for...

When I say I am indeed huge, I'm not joking around.

Not even a little.

I have had two comments from different male checkers at the grocery store that have said "did you want me to ring you up for that watermelon you have there?"  harhar you clever geniuses. 

Sadly, I feel fabulous. Oh, You'll notice that I'm standing in our house!! Wahoo!! It finally happened this weekend...scott and I made the move, and at this point are completely unpacked.  I've been busy getting to work on some furniture refinishing.  I am sure my neighbors get a kick out of a gal as pregnant as me outside on the driveway re-upholstering headboards and painting tables (with proper ventilation to protect Baby Delaney of course).  I will do a post later this week on some of my great garage sale makeovers...as soon as it's all finished and put together!

As I just mentioned,  I really do feel fabulous.  I have your typical aches and pains, and some crazy braxton-hicks at night, but nothing that stops me from the daily grind.  I have a list of too many projects that I need to get done before this little sweetie gets here in 20 days.

I do have one complaint though.

It's my feet...ankles...kankles.

I have NEVER had swelling like this... 

Goodness, let me see if I can get a prettier picture for you.



Oh, what's that you say...there won't BE a prettier picture?!? Ok.

At least I have a beautiful pedicure, and a superb hubby that gives me footrubs.

I miss my ankles.

**Sigh**

So cute! I can't believe I was in your shoes only a couple months ago. It's getting so close already! Seems like it goes by faster when it's not you. Congrats on the house! So happy you're all moved in.

Amber said...

Ok- you do look big, but you can rock it sister! I think you look fantastic! Maybe baby Delaney will be a 9lb baby! Aren't you glad you're having a c-section? Those ankles just look painful though. I can't wait to see your projects!

Erica said...

You look great! I defintely agree with Amber, you know how to look cute with a belly. :) Your poor feet. I remember those days..... And I can't wait you see all the projects you have in store!

You look so good. I'm glad everything went well with the house and you are finally moved in. Can't wait to see the new Springer member.

Savannah said...

You really do look darling! How do you do it?

Curtis, Kassi and Katie said...

You look great and I can tell you feel fabulous. I can't believe you have energy to do anything let alone move into the house, completely unpack, and do projects. I can't wait to see your projects I bet they cost you dollars and they look like a million bucks! I will try to patiently wait!

Noooo! Swollen ankles and feet are awful. That was my worst complaint during the last half of my first pregnancy.

But I am SO glad you still have the energy to do what you want and need to. I can't believe I'll be reading a post announcing the arrival of your third anytime in the next month. Best of luck in the home stretch!

Emili said...

Congrats on the house! Can't wait to see more pics!

On another note I totally do need to come and see you, that sounds amazing. I definitely miss you!

Kim said...

You look so dang cute. Thats how I felt with Clay. Remember that picture we took together when you were about to deliver and I still had a month left. I poked out way more than you did.

YOur beautiful

And I'm so happy that you guys are in your house and you can get things ready for that baby to come.

Emily said...

So sorry your're swollen. At least you make up for it by looking gorgeous. You really look great. Nice job on getting so much done. When I was that size, I cold barely get up to walk to the bathroom. Can't wait to see little D.

Sarah said...

Oh my goodness. Those feet. The joys of being pregnant in August. Good luck with the move and unpacking. Yikes. But congrats on finally being in your house!

Jessie said...

Jill you are freaking adorable! I get the watermelon comment when I am pregnant too!

And my feet swelled up with Crew, but not with Sloan. It's weird how that happens.....

Can't wait to see little Delaney!
