The Last Stretch & Our Weekly Link Up Party!

The Last Stretch!
& Our Weekly Link Up Party

Nine Months Pregnant & The Countdown Is On!!

I feel bigger than a swollen water buffalo...
Crying at a drop of a hat, for no sane reason...
Some days I can barely walk due to joint pain & ligament stretching...
Back aches day & night...

Hard to keep up with a lil tot when you're waddling around, but I do try!

So many unsettling 'symptoms' crop up at this time of
pregnancy...and it is not easy to say the least. 
My fellow Mamas know how that is.

BUT we're super excited that baby will be here

I'm praying for God's strength to get me to the end.
Encouraging myself that this will soon be a distant memory :)

Above, you'll see a pic of me taken just a few days ago.
I have to admit I don't look very flattering towards the end of pregnancy,
but I do try to put myself 'together' to get out of the 
house when I have to.

Otherwise it's pajama pants & long over sized tees.
For real people ;)

I'll be keeping you all posted when baby arrives. 
You'll see some pics on our Twitter, Instagram &
of course on the blog when I get a chance.

Thanks in advance for all the prayers/supports!
We've appreciate them more than you know.

& now onto the link up party!!!
