Weeks 22 & 23: A growing baby!

I know I keep you all anxiously awaiting my posts some times.  It's just that I don't feel there is that much exciting stuff to write about so I hold off.  But here's a shot at it. :)

The last few weeks there have been many final preparations for school to begin.  Hannah and Brianna (the nine year old that lives with us), will start school on August 21st.  They will both be homeschooled using the same core curriculum (The Weaver Curriculum) and then will do reading and math separately, as their skills vary.  Then Benjamin will be doing a loose preschool alongside of them.  So, between preschool, kindergarten and 4th grade, there has been much preparation!  But I will say - we're excited!  The kids can't wait for school to begin and I'm excited too.  I'll post first day of school pictures and stats next time, if I remember.

Daniel is moving much more these days.  It's so much fun to feel him wiggle around.  I'll update about my most recent midwife visit in the next post as it was during week 24.  I'm really starting to feel full and pregnant.  The belly is pretty noticeable these days.  I feel quite a bit larger than in past pregnancies at this point.  I think I'll check out my old pregnancy journals and see if I'm just imagining things or not. 

I'm getting to an odd stage of the pregnancy.  Overall, I'm feeling pretty good physically, though I have the occasional back/pelvic pain if I've been on my feet too long.  It's odd because parts of me feel that I've been pregnant forever and can't believe I still have so much further to go.  Then other parts of me feel it's gone fast and can't believe I'm getting ready to have four children five and under!  I'm sure that once school begins, it'll go even faster and I'll be glad I have so much longer.

That's it for now...

Until next time,
Take care,
