38 Weeks! & Soccer

Well we have officially hit the 38 week mark in my pregnancy! It is still hard to believe that this baby will be here anytime now! I've been really lucky and have had a fairly easy pregnancy, and even these last weeks I've been feeling pretty good. I get sore from getting kicked in the ribs all day, but that's just part of it I guess (this little girl is VERY active!). I haven't had any food cravings, no swelling, no crazy emotions etc. I'm still working, but am now working from home at least 2 days a week. My work has been amazing and lets me do whatever I need to, and will let me work from home after the baby is born. I've run out of things to do to get ready for the baby, so now we just wait!

In other news..... Josh plays indoor soccer with a bunch of his friends (mostly from work). They have been playing for several seasons and their team has been getting better and better. Well they just won the championship a few weeks ago so that was fun! They were tied with only 14 seconds left to play and guess who scored the game winning shot?! Yep, my Joshua did! :)

Some of July.....

Well we almost added a new doggy to our family..... (not really, but kinda). A guy that works with Josh found this puppy in a foreclosed housea couple of weeks ago. Josh brought her home for the night until one of his friends could take her the next day. I knew there was no WAY I wanted a puppy right now! I'm about to have a baby, I don't need to be cleaning up puppy poop and baby poop! It was hard to not fall for the little girl though because she was a sweety. She loved Josh and our other dogs and was extremely smart! She figured out the doggy door after watching our dogs use it ONE time! But after having her at our house for about 18 hours and having to constantly keep an eye on her I was even more sure that I didn't need that added burden right now (plus we already have 3 dogs!) So when Josh took her away the next evening I wasn't even sad, lol.

We had one final ultrasound of our baby girl a couple of weeks ago also. My belly was apparently measuring small so they wanted to check on her growth. Everything looked fine, and she was actually measuring about a week ahead. They guessed ther to be at about 6lbs 10oz a the time. They tried to get some 3D pics of her face, but she was all snuggled up into the placenta so this pic is all we got. (it's her nose and mouth)

Here are a couple of belly shots over the past several weeks as well.....

And then here is a comparison belly shot (same outfit). One taken at 27 weeks, and one at 37 weeks....
