30 weeks #3

After the SnowJam2014 I decided to be slightly crazy and take the kids by myself at 30 weeks pregnant to see Frozen in theaters.  I packed tissue, snacks, and beverages for all.  It was a pleasant day and there weren't any major hiccups.  I decided to go ahead and take my '30 weeks SB' pictures that day since I had an available adult to help.  I had a slight delay/distraction with a stubborn, camera hoggin' 2 year old little girl.  But after viewing these photos... I couldn't help but laugh at her.

I mean, how do you say no to that?

Here I am.
30 weeks with Spencer Brynne Cochran.

Just some comparison pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Oddly enough, I haven't gained as much as I did with either of my first two.  I'm not sure my belly pictures reflect the weight gain, since I have a giant belly!  I know this girl is growing and active.  We will get to 'plan' her birth date this week at the doctor's appointment on Thursday morning!  I am secretly hoping that my doctor is working on April 10, 2014.  I would really like that to be Spencer Brynne's birth date.  Unless she decides to come earlier than that...

After the photo session, the Frozen viewing, and a meltdown from Elizabeth in the car... I got to spend time with Hayes as he watched every single song from Frozen on my laptop while he ate dinner.  His personal favorite, Let It Go, was played at least 15 times.  

As we are nearing the end of this pregnancy, and the last pregnancy we planned on purpose, I am becoming more tired and more sad about it.  I think knowing this is my 'last time to do such & such' or my last kick/roll/punch from inside my belly makes this whole thing bittersweet.  I am thrilled to be having another baby.  I would have 10 if I thought I could manage it.  But I cannot imagine chasing 3 little people around while pregnant again!  It has been so challenging for the last month and grows more difficult with every passing week.  Large belly+active preschoolers=hard time for momma.

I'm trying to soak up every last minute of the next 10 weeks and just enjoy being pregnant.
Remind me of that when I'm complain of exhaustion....
