ummm. pregnant much?

so...this pic makes me look REALLY REALLY preg...but then again.... I am really really preg. I am much bigger with baby logan than I was with Zoey! Zoey I could hide my pregnancy pretty easily up until that last few weeks. Not so much this time.

I am 38 weeks in this pic. Today I am 39 weeks and 2 days. After a great week off of school, I go back to teaching tomorrow. It will be hard going back to the grind after such a great relaxing week. As long as I can make it through each day without going into labor at school I will be satisfied.

This pregnancy has been much harder than my first. For 3 weeks I had really bad back pain that made it so hard to walk, sit, stand, roll over in bed, bend over and work in general! One day last week, it just went away I think due to the baby moving off the nerve causing the pain!

Logan moves so much more than Zoey. You can see my entire stomach moving. He is not afraid to stretch out that little body of his. I often can feel his feet and arms punching out on all sides of my stomach and his head smashing into my bladder ALL AT ONCE!
I haven't really felt any contractions during this pregnancy and have been feeling pretty great this last week making me think I might have to induce this lil sucker out like his sister, but in the last day I have been having more natural signs of labor that give me hope to going into labor on my own this week!

Jake's mom is coming out next Wed to help us and I am sure my mom will be on her way down as soon as we give her the "it's time" call. I have def learned to not expect much when it comes to labor and delivery. All I am hoping for is a smooth, shorter labor and smooth shorter recovery.

I can't wait to meet my little boy and put a name with a face!
