Still Pregnant....





Went to docs yesterday, he said she's really low ...I could of told him that;) He thinks she will come any day.




If she doesn't come on her own this week, I will have a new baby in my arms by next week!




Please keep me in prayer for a safe delivery and healthy baby. I feel good about my doctor and have a peace about it but I can't help but have a little fear of what my last doctor said. My last c-section story. This is some pictures of when I had Finley too...Just thought I'd post those. I can't believe I'm going to have another baby...excited, nervous and wondering how I will do 6 kids. Then again I don't know how to do 5, but the Lord does...Great is He who is in me:)




He will bring me through, he always does:)






Today, I had some energy so I took the kids and the heavy bowling ball hanging between my legs myself out for some fun. Might be the last time with only 5 kids:)






Bumper boats...the kids ganged up against me and got me soaked! Maybe the thought they could bump the baby out of me....But, that wasn't the fun part, the fun part was trying to see me get out of the bumper boat...the poor man had to pull me out. The dock was up high and the boats were low so it was like getting up from a sitting position. very awkward...that's what I get. what I do for my kids I tell you! We all had a good laugh!
We finished the day off with a round of mini golf and some water slides....oh and the buffet:) I didn't gain any weight the last 3 wks so I treated myself. I got my money worth, don't you worry!




Here I am almost 40wks pregnant! by Farrah


I wish my eyelashes were that long and my legs that skinny ha!


really here I am 40wks....check out the foot or leg up by the right rib. I'm sure this is the last picture of her in my belly...bittersweet!
We did sneak in a "babymoon" to San Diego. We enjoyed a nice weekend away with no kids. It has been awhile since we have went away alone and I'm sure it will be awhile till we do it again.

I'm delivering at a really neat hospital (so I'm told)





I have never been there so I thought I'd better take a last minute tour of the place.





(on the elevator headed up to the nursery, they couldn't wait to see the babies)





Daddy was at practice with the 3 older ones so the little girls and I went to check out where Fallon will be born. (I secretly hope she is born at home, but I'm not telling anyone that.)

The girls brought their babies too....


We made a girls night out of it. Got dressed, went downtown, stopped off at hospital and then out for frozen yogurt!

















My biggest craving this pregnancy....frozen yogurt! With mango on top, sometimes I feel like granola. I usually send my husband at about 9pm at night when he's really tired..he doesn't complain only I do when he comes back with mandarin oranges instead of mango's on top! How do you get those mixed up! I guess beggars can't be choosers...I'll forgive him. So this time I got my own yogurt with granola and mango's. Fallon even felt like some kiwi.











These girls love babies and can't wait to play with a real baby! They are going to make such great big sisters!



Last week I didn't have energy, so we spent most of our days in our pj's or those that wanted to just wear their underwear did haha (don't worry I wasn't one of them)... we played games and painted. I asked them questions about Fallon, how much they think she will weigh etc and wrote them down to put in Fallon's baby book. They wanted to paint my belly but we didn't get around to that yet.


The energy just kicked in over the weekend...We headed up to Oak Glen to pick raspberries.













I enjoyed taking pictures of them....










We had many hands picking berries...except Faith. She is deathly afraid of bees. There was a ton of bees so she wouldn't go near the berries. The other kids stuck their hands right into swarms of bees....

















Oak Glen is only about 10 min from our house...for now. It's been a year since we have been here and well.....it seems that we can only stay in a house for a year. So it's that time again.......that's a whole other blog post. Let's just worry about having a baby then I'll move onto telling you about our next move.







We went home and made jam and muffins...


































I think Farrah ate most of them because she picked a ton but her basket wasn't too full:) silly girl







I love this picture below!





I let my kids eat berries without washing them and get dirty feet....



God made dirt....


and the kids yelled, " Dirt don't hurt!"



Oh, I think it's time to go...Finley is drinking water out of the dog bowl as I type. No joke. Now, that I won't allow:)


I'll keep you posted...thank you in advance for your prayers. Much love, Bridget

So, I hope you have an easy delivery however that baby comes out. Meanwhile, I'll be praying that you go into labor. ;) That little burst of energy could be a sign, but you just never know. Time has flown!! That little "body part that is way up high" is just downright scary! That's gotta hurt. With my first pregnancy there was a foot up like that under my rib and the area was numb until she came out. Amazing what our bodies can handle. Remember that GOD designed it. If you can handle that foot like that you can handle whatever you need to. Mostly, enjoy that baby!!!!

Praying for you and baby Fallon! (The rest of them will get a little mention too!! ;)

Love your berry picking pictures.

I used to send my kids out the door to play and tell them they couldn't come back in until they were dirty and smelly. I just love a dirty kid! They are now 21, 20 and 14 - all girls - so the dirty days are over.

Valerie said...

I think it would be awesome if you had her at home! But I wish you the most awesome birth experience no matte where you are :-) I am so glad you get to do so many cool things with your kiddos. I love the part where you wrote about not knowing how to do 5 kids much less 6, and then adding "great is He that is in me". So true!!! If only we would all rest in that!

Heather said...

Oh my goodness!! Another move! You finally coming to your senses and coming to Texas?? ;-) I can't wait to see little Miss Fallon. She will be as beautiful as the rest of all your kids! I can't believe it's #6. I still remember when you and I had just had Austin and Tyler. Wow! Time sure flies! I will be keeping you all in prayer! Love you and miss you all <3

That pic of you and your man looks like you superimposed yourselves. So funny!

I love that huge baby belly! I can't wait to begin feeling the kicks and rolls of baby #7. And get past this 1st trimester of yuckiness. But I count it all a blessing!

Eager to hear about the move! Hoping Fallon comes quickly!
