Winter Wonderland + Bump Update: Approaching 37 Weeks!

Admiring a winter wonderland... 
Me and A decided to venture out to some local walking trails to capture a few shots after running some errands. He's never really down to get behind the camera, because he says "I'm not a photographer!" But as long as I keep asking, I know he will do it for me because he loves me! Ha!
Not to mention, today is was 42 degrees out! 
Which in Minnesota, is quite warm. 
We definitely enjoyed the beautiful day!

It's really amazing to see the beauty in this earth. All the colors and wonders of each season that our Lord has created for us to enjoy. 

And the mystery of birth, the process in which our bodies know exactly what to do and how the perfect combination creates an embryo that grows into another human, growing inside of me. 

Just like our God, its all quite amazing!

Jesus is truly showing me the magnitude of who He is, and who I am in Him. The mysteries of this world are just a glimpse of the mysteries I will discover in Him. In approaching the new year, I am excited to see what God has planned for our new family. But first, to get through this pregnancy :)

Update on the Bump!

How far along? 36 Weeks 5 Days
Total weight gain: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes? I am no longer comfy in jeans, and mostly wear leggings and oversized sweaters. That's my uniform now. But luckily this time of year, that's everyone's uniform :)
Stretch marks? Yes, a few on my belly. Don't get me started on the itchy belly!
    Sleep: Hardly, acid reflux and heartburn keep me uncomfortable and Baby L is most active when momma is trying to catch some Z's!
Miss anything? My small belly! Haha. I'm getting over lugging this thing around. 
Food cravings: For the past week or so I have wanted to eat everything in sight. I know they say the baby is supposed to double in size in the 3rd trimester, but whoa. It's like I can devour everything :) I gained most of my weight in the last month. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Thankfully no!
Gender: Girl :)
Labour signs: Still having Braxton Hicks all the time now, they are mostly uncomfortable! Also pretty bad pelvic pressure.
Symptoms: Fatigue, backaches, pelvic pain, starting to swell -_-
Belly button in or out? In or more or less flat lol 
Wedding rings on or off: Still On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody LOL - Ready to meet her!
Looking forward to: Kissing my baby girl, a few months off with her, watching her and A bond!

Have a great weekend!
