White Whale

I am almost done with this pregnancy and I can't wait for it to be over!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been my easiest pregnancy, but I still hate being pregnant. I know some people love it but i can't stand it. I have been getting so many comments lately about how I look, that I think it is time for me to hibernate until I give birth. It is if know one in Washington has ever seen any one pregnant before, or they are just all rude! I feel like a walking freak show!! I can not go any where without people staring or making comments. I feel bigger this time but I don't think I am that big. I have seen way bigger, and most non pregnant people are bigger so I don't get why I am such a spectacle(Maybe it is the 7 other kids I have following me) Another comment I am sick of. "Is it a girl?" Yes," oh you finally got another girl you can quit trying now." I was never trying for another girl. I love babies and always new I would have a big family. So here are a few of my least favorite remarks I received in the past week. I was at the temple and a lady came up and asked when I was due I told her and her response was: You are really going to be huge by then. What do you say ? Thank you that really lifted me up and made me feel better. A guy at the store came up and asked me if it was a good watermelon. Yes it was great. Another man said wow your going to pop! He had a gut bigger than mine, I wanted to say and so are you! Last week we went on vacation and we were at an amusement park and this woman looked at me and mouthed the words WOW!!!! and then asked when I was due and of course I am going to be really big by then. The funny thing is she was fatter than me,snarly teeth,horrible teeth and so on. My question is if people think they can say stuff like that to pregnant woman. Who by the way know how big they are. Can we point out all of there issues. I felt like saying WOW back to that woman. I would never go up to anybody pregnant or not and say stuff like that to them. I don't understand where these people come from. Sorry this is just a lot of rambling. After all those comments I was wearing a white T shirt so Chase decided to nick name me that White Whale. Very funny. As soon as I can figure out how to upload my pictures off of the new camera I will post a picture and you can be the judge, but just don't tell me how big I look. I already know!

Pink, Fluff, Lace, Flowers and Bows, Oh My!

I finally did the babies room. I decided to keep the blue and green stuff from Ammon, because I loved it so much and then i just added pink. I added so much pink that you really can't tell that I am using a lot of the stuff I had. I went ultra girly, because i haven't got to do that in so long. It has been a lot of fun and I am so excited to have her. I am going to be induced on August 27th. I know that is only 6 weeks away, but I don't know how I am going to make it that long. She is so high and up in my ribs that I have a hard time breathing and eating. Since I have know room to eat if I eat past three in the afternoon I can't sleep because the food comes up. I have a hard time laying down comfortable because i can't breath either. I don't see how I can get any bigger I am miserable. Don't worry I some how am still able to gain weight every time I go to the doctor. Boys for me are so much more comfortable to carry, they are so much lower and fit in my hips so I have not had to deal with these issues.So besides all of my pregnancy woes things are going good and we are excited that she will be here soon.

Independence Day

We took a quick trip to the ocean for the 4th of July. We went to Ocean City here in Washington. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive. We wanted to camp on the beach but everything was full. So we found a hotel right on the water that only ;had one room left. We always get two rooms. They asked how many kids we had and Chase said one,so they would let us have the room. It turned out fine, and we had a lot of fun. The Ocean here is FREEZING! I put my feet in for a minute and my bones hurt it was so cold. I spent most of the time wrapped in a blanket on the beach. It was not what I was imagining, I was thinking of all of our trips to Cali. and how nice and warm it was. It was nothing like that. The other weird thing is you just drive onto the beach and park on the sand, and cars can drive any where they want. You can also light fires where ever when ever and set off your own fireworks. We made a pit and cooked hamburgers, hot dogs and roasted smores, that was my favorite part. We drove home the afternoon of the 4th and I had made a bunch of treats that we didn't eat on the trip so we had a little party.It was a lot warmer back home than at the ocean. It was a good time though.
