Another day late bumpdate post! Mondays are rough here… or at least for me! Almost half way! I can not wait to reach that half way mark.

I know that this is my last pregnancy (the husband gets sterilized this week..  not my oops for us!) and I am sure that are many out there that will tell me to enjoy it. Once it is all over I know there will be a small part of me that will be a bit sad that I will never again have a baby in my belly… but that is a really, really small part of me. Pregnancy is just not for me.. but the baby at the end is worth it… Anyways…

The last couple of weeks were both hard, but better in some ways. My hips still hurt a lot. It is all the time and it makes  me cranky. However the braxton hicks have let up a bit and only seem to act up if I do too much walking.

Photo shoots are hard on me. I am completely exhausted afterwards and pretty much done for the day. But I keep pushing through.

Lifting my kids it getting really hard. I can barely lift my oldest, so I am working on getting her to be more independent. I am still getting of morning sickness.

However, a more happier thing, I am feeling the baby more and more. I am starting to feel movement every day. It still isn’t strong kicks, but they are getting stronger and stronger every day. The baby is most active in the evening and but I am starting to feel it at other times of the day as well.

My bump is getting bigger and bigger. I was worried about my weight gain because I feel huge, however after stepping on the scale the other day I have only gained about  6.5 pounds in total so far. So not really so much. According to most charts that is about right my my height and beginning weight. I really don’t want to gain too much, just what I half to for a healthy baby.

I have my last scan on Friday. I will be finding out the sex of the baby. My husband has said he doesn’t want to know again. If that is the case I will not be announcing it on the blog and you will all have to wait 🙂 But I am excited to find out if we are having another boy or girl.
