Downs & Ups

  • I have what I call "sausage fingers" or "man hands."
  • I also have cankles.
  • I have trouble sleeping on my side.
  • 90-degree North Carolina weather feels like the Sahara Desert.
  • I only have a few maternity shirts that will actually completely cover my gigantic belly.
  • I just started feeling carpal tunnel syndrome when I'm crocheting (which is one of the only things I can do sitting down that makes me still feel productive).
  • I feel like I could sleep for about 16 hours a night.
  • I miss real sushi ("krab" does not count) and wine.
  • Even my face looks different now that I've really started retaining water.
  • My back hurts after sitting in virtually any position for more than about 20 minutes.
  • I can't cross my legs (except at the ankles).
  • I have not worn any shoes that were not flip flops in at least 2 months (so sad).
  • I miss running and being active.
  • I'm pretty sure I weigh more than 200 lbs now.
  • It hurts to stand up for more than about 3 minutes.  (I even wake up with my feet already hurting.)
BUT I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.  I have these two tiny hearts beating inside of me and these two beautiful little people that God has entrusted me to raise.  I can't wait to meet them.  They're even worth having cankles for... and that says a lot.  =)

  1. Hi Les! Just caught up on your blog after being out of town on our youth missions trip for a week - sounds like a lot has happened! I can't believe its getting so close to the arrival of these little ones. So, so super excited for you & Jason! The nursery looks amazing and you look truly beautiful! :)
