Pregnancy Update: 7 Weeks and Counting....

Posted by Jenna | Monday, October 05, 2009

I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone! With Kaelyn 40+ weeks seemed to take forever, but not with this one. I cannot believe that I'm just 7 weeks away already...and that next month we will meet the newest addition to our family!! It's such an exciting time, but also has me realizing that if time continues to go this quickly, I have a lot of things to get done between now and then.

I guess you could say I've settled into the "nesting stage" a bit early. I want to make sure I have some baking done so that meals and goodies are ready to take out of the freezer during those hectic first few weeks. There's also the baby room that we still need to get organized and so much more!

In some ways I am hoping that these next 7 weeks go by quickly. I can't wait to meet our son or daughter! On the other hand, I suppose it wouldn't be so bad if the weeks slowed down just a little so we can be sure to get everything ready and organized before his/her arrival! Either way I'm planning to enjoy every minute of the rest of this pregnancy....feeling the baby move, getting things ready for his/her arrival and even the expanding belly that gets harder and harder to fit into most shirts that I own. :)

My twin brother and his wife threw us a baby shower yesterday! We had such a great time getting to see many family and friends. We feel very blessed to have received so many wonderful gifts (it was a diaper and children's book theme...a genius idea thought up by my sister-in-law) and feel even more prepared for the baby's arrival now!

Here's a pic of she and I at the shower! As you can see, she's also expecting....we're due less than a week apart!

    Awe..you both look great! We are excepting our first baby girl Feb. 3rd. Feels like time is flying by with this pregnancy too. ;)

    I am guessing that you are having a boy!

    With my first baby, my brother's wife and I were expecting at the same time too. In fact, we were due a day apart and the cousins ended up with a 5 day difference. It was great to see them grow up together! How fun for you both!

    Oh, you both look fabulous, and about the exact same size... I hope you both have the same sex baby so they can be best friends and share everything... I say this because I had a son and my sister had a daughter 3 months apart and they couldn't share toys and clothes... They DID like meeting each other friends when they were teenagers though!! :-)

    Thank you! There's actually a similar story here to yours Xenia... when I was pregnant with Kaelyn my sister in law (in the picture) was pregnant also. We were due just 1 day apart as well. Kaelyn and her cousin Emry ended up being born 13 days apart and have so much fun together being so close in age. Then, when we found out that we were expecting our second baby, we also found out that my sister in law and brother were expecting their second with a due date just 6 days a part this time! We'll have to see how close they are born together this time. They are having a boy, but we have chosen to be surprised, so we'll have to see. :)
