Ali’s Pregnancy Journal- 38 Weeks. The last week!

38 weeks pregnantfamily maternity sessionI can’t believe this is my last week of this pregnancy! Friday is the day! Unless of course baby girl decides to join us early! The last few weeks are the hardest (in my opinion) but I’m feeling pretty lucky, I know it could be a lot worse. Walking for long periods of time is starting to get uncomfortable, and at night I get a lot of contractions and pains in my belly and lower back. I’m still sleeping good and really can’t complain too much.


I’m getting REALLY excited to meet our baby girl! All of a sudden it doesn’t feel like I’ve been pregnant long enough to be having a baby on Friday…. FRIDAY!!!

 family maternity shoot

familyfamilyWe took family/maternity photos over weekend that I love so much! I guess it is a tradition for us to take maternity photos last minute. These were taken 5 days before baby #2 is scheduled to arrive and our first maternity shoot while I was pregnant with Piper was 6 days before she was born. 🙂 Our friend Jaime at  Jaime Hearts Photography does an amazing job. I cherish the memories she helps capture! She has such a good eye for photography and makes you feel 100% comfortable being photographed. It is always a great experience and the photos will last forever helping embed the memories in my mind.maternity shoot family maternity photos

Everything is coming into place. Piper got a new big girl bed, her amazing daddy hand crafted for her. (New big girl room post coming soon!) We moved Piper’s crib over to the nursery which is coming together slowly but surely. I actually think it will be close to done by Friday, as long as baby sticks to our schedule. Of course there are no promises there! All the necessities are complete.

I’m excited to introduce you to our baby girl! I can’t wait to kiss her sweet little face and cuddle her itty bitty body! She’ll be here so soon!
