Pregnancy Files {The Bump Week 35}

Western Plaid Shirt Dress from Gap: Now on sale! Found here
{I'm behind again on these posts, but trying to squeeze them all in before Aiden comes!}

Best moment this week: Getting maternity pictures taken! The talented Jax took our pictures at a local park and I could NOT be happier with how they turned out. The look and feel of the pictures are exactly what I wanted. Check out her photography Facebook page here and book her immediately if you need a photographer!

Food cravings: It is much easier to fill me up these days. My usual Chipotle order is being minimized, which is probably a good thing.

Movement: Still moving around in there and still feeling him hiccup around the same time each late afternoon. So cute.

Symptoms: Big as a coconut and it's starting to take a toll on my back. 

Nursery: Drew hung our spice racks turned book shelves and I've had fun organizing all the cute little board books to go in them. The nursery has taken a back seat this week and I have a few projects I'd still like to do before Aiden gets here, but I'm not sure that will happen at this point. We shall see...

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
Your Dad and I took a class on childbirth together this week. It did not make me nervous, but more excited for this whole process. I am getting so anxious to meet you and hold you. I had in my mind you would be making a late appearance, but now I'm feeling we might get to meet you before your due date. If you could just wait until after this weekend so your Dad can marry your Aunt Carly and Uncle Josh we would all appreciate it.
Love,
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
Being the worrier that I am I thought I would be more anxious about labor and delivery, but I'm just not. Thank you for giving me peace. Help me continue to be calm about this and not get worked up. Be with the doctors and nurses who will be helping me at the hospital whenever that day may come. We trust you completely for provision.
Amen. 

Philippians 4:6-8
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Eek! You're getting so close! It's so good that you're feeling at peace about the delivery. I'm surprisingly feeling similar- I figure this baby is going to come out regardless, so I can stress and worry and make it a harder experience than it has to be, or I can relax and have confidence in myself and my body and let nature take its course.

So excited for you! :)

You are looking gorgeous (as usual)! It's good that your class made you feel good and not too worried... we are taking a 4 week course and had week 3 last night. I feel pretty good about it too! I mean, there is a lot involved, but I am so glad to feel even the tiniest bit prepared for whatever is going to happen!

So excited about your photo session with Jacquelyn - what a great location, and you two are dressed just perfectly for it too :) We loved our maternity session with her and are about to have another one for Hendrik's 1st birthday. Crazy!

It's crunch time!! You will do great! The whole thing is a lot less scary than a lot of people make it out to be.
