31 weeks down only 9 more to go:)

So my third trimester so far has been crazy. I have been sick with a bad cold and ear infection in both ears for almost 3 weeks...I am finally hearing normally again and am almost done with my antibiotics..the second round in three weeks. (they gave me the wrong kind the first time) Thank you everyone for the dinners and help while I was so sick! I had lots of morning sickness and heartburn and other pregnancy symptoms for most of the pregnancy, and just when I thought I was feeling better and was really good for about a month, my 3rd trimester started and it all returned...lucky me:) But really, I feel so blessed to be pregnant, I shouldn't complain. This will all be over soon:) I have discovered though that potatoes and pasta and cereal are my new favorite foods, since they don't make me sick and I can hold them down..nice eh?:)

Evan was gone a couple days for work and that was a little difficult for me, since I got used to him helping me with things that I can't do anymore, like reaching into the sink and unloading the dishwasher successfully. Even turning out the lights and letting me go upstairs before him, getting in and out of the car. He really is a great husband and helps me with soooo much! I am so lucky to have him.

We are getting ready to have company this weekend, and other things coming up, so I really need to clean the house. He is great to clean with, especially since he can bend and carry things:)
I am totally going through a nesting phase, and since we are house-sitting for another year, it has been difficult knowing how to fill this nesting need. All of our stuff is still boxed up for the most part. We need to go through it again and figure out what we can do with all of our stuff. We are trying to become more organized financially, physically, emotionally, all of the "ally's". Life runs so much better when you know what you are doing. I can't wait to have my own house and use my own things, and know where they all are. We are totally blessed to be house-sitting right now, but I can't wait to not have to be in the "living out of a suitcase" mode. For now, Evan and I do what we can, and looking at the baby room is awesome. It is the cleanest part of the house, and we know exactly where everything is in the room..small victories:) Well, if anyone ever wants to have a sort through and organize Hilary's stuff party..let me know:)

I hope I can get on the ball of taking more pictures of my growing belly..because it sure grows more and more each week, if not day:) Lucy kicks all of the time and it is awesome watching her toss and turn and guess what body part is sticking out:)

For those who want to read a funny but yucky story:... I picked Evan up from his conference today, and on the way home we had to stop somewhere, and just as we were nearing our stop, Evan made me laugh for like 3 minutes straight and I couldn't control myself, I peed my pants in the car...I couldn't stop laughing, which made me laugh harder and lose even more control. Let's just say the car is clean, but Evan had to go into the store by himself..oh..the pregnancy memories I will cherish:)

You are so cute! The one thing I HATED about being pregnant was the loss of bladder control. I got bronchitis in the third trimester and every time I would cough I'd pee my pants. It was so irritating. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Use tons and tons of hand sanitizer, and Lysol wipes on everything you touch to keep healthy. With your immune system down, it's easy to get sick again. Being sick and pregnant SUCKS!

You are SOOOOO stinkin' cute! Thanks for posting the pic! You are getting so close! Don't worry, one day soon you won't be pregnant anymore! :D

Oh, and I LOVED the story about the car incident...almost made me have a little accident of my own ;)

Cute pregnant belly! Oh the joys of not being able to do things because you have a belly in the way, you won't miss that too much!

I really like being pregnant. All of those things just reinforce that I still am pregnant! :) You are cute, and I hope to see you at the shower, but like I told Amy before...if she plans it in March that is when I will have the baby so...thanks a lot!

Just for a little reminder:
July 15, 06 Lucas is born, you get married.
October 2007 I was in labor with Bridget for the Halloween thing and she ended up being born on Amy's birthday.
March 7, 08 I bet this chick will decide to ruin my Hilary plans because lets face it that is what my Witte kids tend to do.

You now have to make a time to see me, and if you dont I will eat BDs without you! LOL :)

LOVE the pictures! You are so stinking cute! And also, I laughed so hard I had to explain to my hubby what was going on. I do NOT miss being pregnant! :)

LOL! Your post is awesome. :) I think that bladder story is one for the journal!

Hey I saw Evan at his conference. I hope he endured the kids all right! I don't think he saw me but Joel was in four events for Goddard so I was at the awards ceremony. *hugs*
