Getting closer!

So, if you take a look above, you can see from the count down that i only have 15 more days until my due date! I've been doing all of the wierd things people say to do in order to go into labor, and let me tell you.... Hannah is already just as stubborn as Travis and I are put together... she's not going anywhere until she is good and ready! I am a little sad, because i recently just found some stretch marks and i thought i was doing so well about not getting them...but it's just part of it so i have moved on!

Life is strange being 9 months pregnant. My life, along with Travis' of course, is about to change forever. We will no longer be "Travis and Jennifer" but "Travis and Jennifer, plus one". Travis and I have been together since we were 15, and were best friends before that. We used to talk about the future and about how if we ever did get married how many kids we wanted... etc. Well now... in about or around 15 more days, we will actually have a little baby. We've come a very long ways together, and it while i am extremely excited about the new addition to our family, it's a little sad to say goodbye to just, "Travis and Jennifer".

Other than that, I'm so ready for her to be here, in our arms and enjoying life! I'm a little nervous about how big she may or may not be. Lately, because of the holidays.... i've had to see several different doctor's when i go to a doctor's appointment. So i get a different opinion about her size everytime. Two of the four doctors i have seen have told us that Hannah will be a big baby, while the other two say she shouldn't be too big at all. So i've come to the conclusion... they have no idea what they are talking about! :) lol

Travis and I are so excited about bringing Hannah into the world. I'm also a little nervous. I don't know how i'm going to protect her from all of the bad things that people do or all of the insane crazy things that happen. BUT Hannah will have God in her life so i know she will be fine!

My pregnancy journey with Hannah has been a pretty smooth one. I have been blessed with a normal and healthy prenancy with absolutely zero problems. God trully smiled down on Travis and I and blessed us with such an easy pregnancy. I am thankful for that.

However, I absolutely CAN NOT wait to be able to do the following:
1. sleep on my tummy again :)!!!!!
2.Losing all the weight i gained during my pregnancy plus a few extra!
3. Not having to waddle when i walk! :)
4. Being able to take long walks....
5. Hold my baby girl while she is sleeping
6. Make my baby laugh
7. See Travis hold his little girl with that special tenderness father's have with their babies
8. Watch my little girl grow up to be a Godly woman
9. Share my little one with the world :)

There are so many things I can't wait for! PLease little Hannah.... come out soon!! We want to play with you :).
