Thought I'd give an update. Been taking it easy. It's been an epic few weeks....two trips to the hospital with high blood pressure, two weeks of bed rest, a serious case of PUPPS (which I don't wish on my worst enemy), a 8 pound weight gain in a week (you should see my feet!), and a severe chest cold.
But you know...it's all going to be worth it. I'm planning on doing it one more time, despite being in the throes of all the ickiness currently. And here's why....check out those cheeks!
Baby already outweighs big brother Hank at birth by 3 pounds. As for delivery, I have a c-section scheduled soon, but not soon enough. :) Only thing to do when your OB ignores your begging and pleading for an early delivery is to say screw it all and go out and have some fun anyway. Photo taken last night. You can tell my "give a damn" is seriously busted if I'm willing to go out in public in an overstretched bikini and a men's t-shjrt. Completely worth it.
Before everything went right in the crapper, I did get some pregnancy photos taken. Love having these...wish I had done it with Hank. And that my friends, is that. Matt promised to sit on the couch and rub my feet for me. Going to take him up on his offer:).
These pictures are so wonderful Erin :)ReplyDelete
Such adorable photos. I wish your ankles well.ReplyDelete
You look radiant!ReplyDelete
What great pictures Erin. Enjoy the foot rub!ReplyDelete
Awww....you look simply beautiful Erin!!ReplyDelete
You look absolutely adorable. Love those photos.ReplyDelete
All the best in the coming weeks.
Oh my goodness---the pregnancy pictures are so trendy these days---I wish I had done it----I LOVED being pregnant! They are beautiful! Praying God's blessings on you and that precious one inside you!ReplyDelete
You sound like me. My due date (with baby #2) is TODAY and I've already been fielding calls & txts: "how ARE you?" "Is today the day??" and I am just replying "Still here, STILL pregnant" and my give a damn is busted also! I hope you have a smooth and easy delivery & a speedy recovery enjoying your new little one!! :)ReplyDelete
OH you look so beautiful! :)I love those 3D sono's I was able to get it w/my baby girl and it was out of this world to see a sneak peek of my blessing! ((HUGS)) to you and many blessings :)ReplyDelete
Your photos are gorgeous! Hope that you stay cool and able to get some rest! I was on bed rest the last three months of my first pregnancy and I totally remember near the end feeling the same as you--I went out and had some fun!ReplyDelete
Oh Erin, what the heck is PUPPS!!? So sorry you have been feeling cruddy! Hope you are feeling some relief soon.ReplyDelete
LOVE the picture of you and Hank kissing the belly. ADORABLE!
You look fabulous! I wish I had done that (the photos-I did the HBP thing)with one of my pregnancies-too late now. LOL.ReplyDelete
Hang in there!
Erin, thank you soooooooo much for the update. You look FABULOUS by the way. And looks like you have been doing a fantastic job keeping the little bun in the oven baking so to speak. And yes, that ultra sound is ADORABLE.ReplyDelete
Hope your day is FAST APPROACHING so you can meet baby number 2 face to face!!!! Best Wishes.
Hang in there Erin, It sounds like you are nearing the end of this journey. Keep it up MAMA!
Bet little Hank is ready to be the BIG BROTHER he was ment to be!

Oh my goodness, I had no idea! Congrats! Hope delivery day comes fast! The pics are ADORABLE! You're too cute!ReplyDelete
you look adorable! hope the high bp is under control and your ankles size is decreasing... your are in my thoughts and prayers for a safe delivery by csection.ReplyDelete
Love the belly shots!! You look gorgeous!! Wish I had done that way back when - my youngest daughter (have 3) is 18 and just graduated on Sunday!! Back then we tried to hide those big bellies!! Hope all goes well. Mine were ALL C-sections!!ReplyDelete
You look beautiful, Erin! Hang in there!ReplyDelete
Oh wishing you a speedy delivery (a la Mr. McFeeley from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood...does anyone else remember him???)...You look awesome in both the professional photos, and for being put through the ringer...you sure look great in last night's photo, too! And those babies (in and out, hee)...so cute!ReplyDelete

Erin, good luck. Hope the C-section is soon! I had 3 c-sections, 1 planned, 2 unplanned but all three boys are just fine! Your photos are all beautiful. Enjoy that foot rub!!ReplyDelete
I haven't been over here for a while, so there was soo much to see! LOVE your pregnancy photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. I am sorry it seems like you have every possible condition known to man right now, hope you are feeling better soon. I love what you've done with the PTI stamps. You are sooo creative. I never would have thought to use the arrow as a rocket, but it's perfect! Best wishes to you!ReplyDelete
Wonderful pictures and memories! I too had PUPPS so I feel for you, but at least it's only temporary. The way I figure it is, it's all worth it!ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better (and deliver) soon. The pics are gorgeous. Take care of yourself.ReplyDelete
You look beautiful! Sounds like a little hypertension going on there. Better take it easy!!! Definitely need to do the bed rest and get the feet rubbed. I went through the same thing and it's brutal!!ReplyDelete
Sweet pics :O)ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry you have been feeling so crummy!! I have been thinking of you lots and yes, you looked beautiful :)ReplyDelete
you look so beautiful! You may feel yucky some now, but will miss all of soon! It's such a magical time ;)ReplyDelete
PUPPS - so it must be a boy. Hope you get through the rest of your time with no drama or any more issues. Sending you prayers.ReplyDelete
Erin, I can so relate to that video you posted of your hubs before Hank came a long. And I found it so hilarious that I MUST post it on my blog where I put all my parenting stuff. With your permission, of course. You giggling in the background along with your sweet dear husband had me dying with laughter! That SO sounds like John and I!!ReplyDelete
