My Bump

My Bump

Officially 9 months pregnant! Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday I saw those two precious little lines appear that stated “YEP, You’re PREGNANT!”

My husband and I decided that we were ready to start our family in May of 2011. We had purchased our home, established careers, bought a 4 door car, and traveled everywhere we had wanted to go. So a baby was just the next step!

It took us a little while to see that Big Fat Positive all the way until January 2012. Miss Lucy Monroe will be making her big debut into the world sometime in September 2012! What an exciting journey pregnancy has been, it is so crazy the changes that your body will start to make so soon. I have been documenting every step of the way with photos every month and of course a pregnancy journal. We both wanted a baby so bad, I just want to remember everything!

My nesting has finally set in during these last few weeks. For a while, I felt so unprepared, but after this past weekend I think I am ready (…well as ready as I’m going to get)! Everyone has been asking me lately if I am getting nervous and…I’m not. Still not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing…I just do not see how you can completely prepare for a baby, although I should mention neither one of us have ever changed diapers, fed a baby, or even played with a baby more than just a few seconds. So, this will be an experience for the both us, experiencing a few mistakes along the way I’m sure!

I will make sure to keep you updated after her arrival, and could use a ton of thoughts and prayers as we start this next chapter in our lives.
