Less than 3 months left.!!

I cant believe how fast time is going by now. I am now starting my third trimester and have less than three months until i get to meet my little love bug and I cant wait. I have been feeling some pretty mixed emotions these last few weeks. I am so excited to finally have my little girl in my arms but i am definitely getting nervous with the whole going through labor thing. Robert and I are in middle of taking our childbirth classes and we watch a birth video every week and I sit there like Oh Wow, im going to have to do that!! There's no getting around it. By the end of the video im so emotional about the parents meeting there child and the mom always looks so happy. Please keep me in your prayers as far as labor goes, I am aiming for a natural birth no drugs or intervention unless there's an emergency. Please pray that I would be strong and that I would fully rely on the Lord and His strength to bring this child into the world in the best way possible, naturally. There are so many drugs that are given to women that hurt more than help in the labor process. I just want to be left alone to birth my child without so much chaos and confusion.

My baby shower is fast approaching. October 25th is the date. I am so excited to celebrate this little girls soon arrival with my family and friends. We have some really fun things planned for the day that i am excited about.

Phisically I am doing great, i have only gained about 13 pounds so far so not too bad. Doctor says i will probably gain another 10-15 pounds by baby time which is great. My belly is definitely growing more and more. Julia loves to move around during the day and sometimes at night which can be disturbing while im sleeping. Its cool she must know my voice because i will talk to her and say shhh mommy's here calm down and after a few times of doing that she will calm down:) Robert and I are going on our hospital tour this friday, so we are definitely looking forward to that, we have lots of questions:) Well I guess thats it for now. Please keep our little family in your prayers:)

Leslie, Robert, and Baby Julia

Seeing my baby girl again:)

Robert and I went for an ultrasound and just thought i'd share a couple pictures of our little love bug!! She was moving around so much, its was amazing to her little mouth moving and her fingers wiggling, so cute:)

She is definitely growing quickly:) Her heartrate was at 154 BPM, which is nice and strong. Hope you enjoy the pics of our little Julia Noelle!!

I love this pic, she's got her little hand under her chin:)

This is her showing her feminine side:)

6 months preggo

Just taking a little time out to write a bit. I will be 25 weeks pregnant and i cant believe it, its starting to go by so fast now. Its hard to imagine that in about 3 months i am going to welcome a little girl into my home. That Robert and I will be mommy and daddy to our little Julia Noelle:) Pregnancy thus far has been pretty good to me, no major struggles, thank God. I am learning so much about my body and how amazing it is to be able to carry this child. God is so great and the way he molded us together just amazes me more and more everyday. I love this little girl i am carrying more and more everyday with each little kick and squirm it just puts a smile on my face.

My baby shower is set for October 25th and i am so excited to see everyone and spend time with friends and family i dont see often enough. The theme for Julia's room and baby shower is ladybugs, i love the bed set we picked and all the little room organization stuff we registered for. We are in the process of trying to figure out how exactly we want to decorate her room(painting, etc.). We have starting buying things little by little. So far we have her dresser/changing table, her bassinet, car/seat stroller combo and some other odds and ends. Such cute stuff!!

Robert and I started our Bradley Birth class this last sunday and it went great. Cant wait to learn more about what will be gonig on with my body pretty soon. It definitely helps me cope and not be so intimidated with the labor process. Well i guess thats it for now just wanted to do a quick update on me and baby Julia.
