28 Weeks Pregnant Today!!!!

That means I am into my third and final trimester, YAY!!! It has gone by so fast and I am sure bubs will be here before we know it. I seriously could not have asked for a better pregnancy so far. It has really been a breeze *knocking on wood*. I have another antenatal appointment tomorrow which I am excited about. I love getting to hear our baby girls heart beat and seeing where she is lying. It is getting so exciting! Alex and I often talk about the day she will actually be here with us. We haven't done too much on the nursery side of things as we have been pretty busy with organising the wedding. I can't believe I will be a wife this Saturday!! I thought I would be a nervous wreck on the week leading up to the big day, but I am actually pretty excited about it. Everything is starting to fall into place and I think we are ready to get this wedding done, lol. I will post pics from the big day when we get back from our honeymoon.

Any who, I just wanted to share with you a couple of pics of my changing belly. The first one is from when I was 15 weeks and the last one was taken today.

Look at that tiny little belly bump

She has still got a ways to grow yet which is a scary thought.

I hope everyone has a great week and a great weekend. Please pray for a beautiful sunny day on Saturday for me ;)

There is a kicking machine in my belly!!

Yep, this baby girl in my belly is definitely getting stronger and stronger every week. She is constantly kicking and punching away at my insides, and I love it! Not loving the bladder kicking so much though, especially when it is hard for me to even take one more step because I'm afraid I will wet my pants if I do, lol.

Another big baby making milestone also happened to me this week. I was in shock the other night while lying down in bed, when I noticed my belly was pushed out at a weird angle. I couldn't believe my eyes! It was the strangest thing to see my own stomach pushed out like that. It seriously looked like I had a massive protruding lump just to the side of my belly button (which by the way has been stretched out so much, it now looks more like a canyon then my once petite little belly button). Alex and I could even feel a hard little limb pushing out when we ran our hands over it. She has done it a few more times since but only when I am lying down on my back. It is so exciting experiencing all these things for the first time.

I also wanted to share with you the name Alex and I have chosen for our precious daughter (omg we are going to have a daughter, eeep!).

~ Mikayla Rose ~

We love this name so much and have already taken to calling her by her name quite easily. Everyone else seems to really like it as well which is always good.


Before I sign off I just wanted to share with you a couple of pics that my Brother Beau took of Alex and I last weekend as practice for our wedding day photos. Beau is a great photographer and will be doing all our wedding photos on the big day. He is really nervous, but I know he will do great!
