I only have 4 weeks left. Which is crazy and awesome all at the same time. You really forget how large and uncomfortable you feel the last few weeks.

Aside from the big post explaining the issues and a few posts here and there, I have not really had a lot to say about this pregnancy. I think some of that is because it is more complicated than I would like. But I think mostly it is because it has gone by so fast. I was only sick for about 15 weeks. I have had a 2 year old to keep up with and the joys of moving into a house and settling in. I may still have boxes that are unpacked, don't judge me.

SO here is a quick update. I have 4 weeks until I give birth. I feel large and very uncomfortable. More specifically, I want to eat anything that is salty, I cant get enough coffee which is bad. I restrain myself to 1 cup a day, but I would drink 17 pots if I thought it was ok. Yes, 17 pots exactly. It hurts to walk more than a few feet. I constantly feel like Lowri is just going to fall out she is so low and even though I have only gained 16 pounds, hardly any of my maternity clothes fit me. I think it is because I am carrying Lowri so low that the shirts simply do not cover.

People say every pregnancy is different and its true. This pregnancy could not be more different than Eleri's. Even if you remove the complications, they are still night and day. It has been fun, and I do enjoy being pregnant, but I have hit that point where I want to not have a little human inside me. I cant wait to hold my new little daughter. I cant wait for Eleri to meet her little sister. And I am really looking forward to running again.

So there is the update. I have only taken a few pictures this time, completely different for the millions I took last pregnancy, so here are the 2 pictures I have.

25 weeks

32 weeks

So there it is. the first and last real pregnancy update with pictures. I should be off to clean the house, but instead I am going to take a nap.

Cleaning is overrated anyway. Napping is not. Enjoy your nap.
