Only a few more months.

I'm 6 months pregnant... 26 weeks to be exact. Its hard to believe that in two and a half months we'll be adding another member to our family! We still don't have an exact date of when Beck will be born and I'm so anxious to find out when it will be. I think after Christmas we're going to be able to set up the date.

I'm also anxious to get this baby off of my sciatic nerve. For the last few months I've been having the hardest time walking, standing, sitting and just moving because my son has decided to rest on my nerve:) Riley rested on my nerve a bit but never to the point that I wasn't able to move! Honestly, the pain is a lot worse than my labor was and my c-section. Times like these I'm so grateful for the internet! I've been able to research ways to help relieve the pain, and avoid it all together. Praise Jesus!

Despite the morning sickness I had the first 8 weeks & the back pain, this pregnancy has been really good. I wasn't sure how I would handle being pregnant with a toddler but things have gone smoothly. I think a lot of it really has to do with Riley being such a good baby. I can't tell you how helpful it is to have my child never fight me when it comes to her naps, having her play in her play area while I clean, not having her throw tantrums or even cry once though out the day... Its really a blessing when you're tired from not sleeping enough and without very much patience:) Of course come the weekend, when Leif is home, Riley doesn't want to nap and throws plenty of tantrums, haha.

This pregnancy has been a lot different than Riley's, but I'm still enjoying it and being blessed by it constantly. God is good!

Hi Margaret, I enjoy reading your blog. You have a beautiful family and seem like a really nice person. I hope you have a healthy pregnancy. You are a positive motivator for me. By the way, we are both cancers. Tell Riley I said Happy belated birthday.

WOW! It's almost time already?! Hope baby gets off that nerve. I think my daughter was doing the same thing during my last pregnancy. I could barely walk sometimes. OUCH. hahah

You look great and I can't wait to see your newest little man!
