32 weeks, Is There REALLY More Room?!

It feels like only a week has passed since I was posing for my 28 belly picture! But here we are at 32 weeks and I'm having a hard time believing there is any more room in this abdomen of mine for four plus more pounds of baby! I mean really, I know I've carried all out front with all my babies, but it never ceases to amaze me how big I get in these last months. Only one more monthly picture at 36 weeks, then I'll try to take one each week, in case it's the last, from then on out. Please continue to pray for a healthy baby and pregnancy and for a smooth delivery in the end. I have mixed feelings about the ending of this pregnancy. I hesitate to say definitively that this is our last baby, but that's what we're both feeling at this point, so unless God changes our hearts and minds on the issue at some point, there is a bit of grieving that comes with the end of this pregnancy. The thought of never feeling life move within my womb again is just too much to bear! Every part of bringing new life into the world is so miraculous and wonderful, even amidst the aches and pains. I feel so privileged to have been able to do this three times already, it just never gets old. But more on these thoughts to come I'm sure. For now, enjoy my growing girth and if you'd like a bare belly pic for even more shock and amazement, just let me know and I'll email one to you. I'd also like to give Jenn a big "thank you" in advance for the shower she is throwing for me this coming Saturday! You are one of the most generous, selfless people I know and I am so humbled and honored that you would bless us in this way! I'll be posting some pictures from Emma's birthday party later in the week.
Blessings!
