On Thursday I'll be 32 weeks already. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going - I FEEL FANTASTIC! I don't think I've ever felt this great this far into a pregnancy. I'm pretty sure I've always been ready to have my body back at this point. Yes, it would be nice to feel a little less self conscious about my changing body. I've gained so much more weight this time than I did with my previous pregnancies, but maybe that's why I feel so good?! I'm sending out my positive energy that I'll feel this great until at least 36 weeks. I do need to start processing the ending of this journey. I can't believe it's almost over. I learned from my experience last time that I need to have another big goal to focus on so I don't have a 'what now' sort of feeling. I'm sure that I'll train for another full marathon, but I feel like there might be more. I just need to do some soul searching and see if I can find what that might be. Until then, I'll just keep on running!

Lydia joined us for the ultrasound with the neonatologist. She has totally been into this pregnancy. I don't know if it's her age or if it's because she gets to attend the birth of this baby, but she has daily snuggles with my belly and patiently waits to feel movement. She called IP-B one day to tell them that she has given the baby a name until it's born. She calls the baby "Pickle". I have no idea where or why she came up with this name. She has been delightful to have along for this journey. The boys will occasionally feel the baby move. George is more excited to feel the baby than Jack. They have all been troopers through this pregnancy, but I think they're ready to have their mom back.

We had the pleasure of babysitting Spencer a few weeks ago while his parents were hosting their best friend's baby shower. It's pretty fun that they are expecting a baby just four weeks before this baby is due. We were warned that Spencer might be a "flight risk" and they weren't joking. He's a boy on the move! It was so fun to hang out with him and take him to George's baseball game. He really is a cool kid!
