  1. Can you please deliver on November 2? That’s my birthday so it would be a really awesome day to deliver. Just sayin’… LOL

    Best wishes to Josh for a speedy recovery on his surgery!

  2. I get you switching up the weekly format a little bit. I did the questionnaire with Cameron’s pregnancy and it got SO boring. I won’t ever do it again. I like reading something like this anyway! 🙂

    You’re allowed to say it. I think pregnancy is one thing when you are pregnant with your fist and a whole other kettle of fish when you are chasing after a child at the same time. I loved being pregnant with Cameron. Loved it. Didn’t want it to end. I was so excited to be pregnant again but by the end of Gavin’s pregnancy I realized that I didn’t like it so much any more.

    And now? I’m kind of scared to get pregnant again. I like my non-pregnant body.

    Hopefully the next few weeks don’t crawl by, but don’t go too fast either.

    Praying for your family and for Josh!

  3. Lindsey says:

    I will definitely say prayers for a smooth surgery and speedy recovery. Especially with you being so uncomfortable, him recovering quickly is muy importante! All I can say is I absolutely feel for you with the pregnancy dragging on thing. It sucks. Babies are an absolute miracle and blessing of the greatest kind, but for some of us the pregnancy part simply sucks.

  4. Barbie says:

    You’re in the home stretch now. And I can understanding hating being pregnant at this point in time. I think that I did too. I’ll praying praying all of the other things that you want to get done get done, and for Josh as well, that his surgery goes well. Get some rest!

  5. Alexa says:

    Oh girl, do I know what you mean! My second pregnancy was miserable… when you’re chasing around a toddler and can never rest… it stinks. Then my 3rd pregnancy I had two toddlers to chase around, I was pregnant with twins, and sick as a dog. As awful as it sounds, there were times I was thankful that the babies came early – at 30weeks and 5 days. It was THAT bad! Many people can’t understand that… but, that is the truth. Here’s to hoping you can somehow find some rest and a comfortable position to relax and enjoy your little man! Good luck!

  6. Yep. Ditto. Hated it. Was miserable the last few weeks. But it will be over soon!

  7. Stacy Downing says:

    Right now my husband and I are trying to get pregnant so I’d give anything to experience being pregnant…I guess it’s all perspective. We’ve been trying for 5 years now and are now getting some medical help to hopefully achieve a healthy pregnancy.
    Best of luck to you in your last few weeks….I’m sure it will be worth all the discomfort.
    You are truly blessed!

    • Courtney says:

      I am so sorry that you guys have been struggling for so long. We tried for over a year with our second, so I can’t imagine what 5 years feels like. And I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to even carry a baby. Believe me, that’s not something that I take for granted at all.

  8. awe you look beautiful! i know how you feel hun it will be over soon – just not soon enough 😉 prayers for all of you!

  9. Kaitlin says:

    I haven’t experienced the pregnancy yet, but I wish you well. I know you will be a great mother to two. I just wanted to let you know that I will keep you and yours in my prayers this week just as you requested. I love reading your blog. I haven’t heard from any of your family recently I hope your mom, dad, and sister are all doing well. I love reading about your life since you moved to Alaska. It is always refreshing to keep in touch with people from the town we grew up in. Well hope things all go as you have planned and God bless. Just remember Isaiah 40:31–Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

    All things will work out.

  10. Alison says:

    I totally hated the last 6 weeks of pregnancy. By week 37, I was literally begging this baby to be born. But of course, he didn’t listen 🙂 He came well and ready one day before his due date, and I can tell you, aside from the quick and easy labor that made me very happy, and that I finally had my baby in my arms, I was SO THRILLED I wasn’t pregnant anymore.

    There, I’ve said it too!

    Enjoy the time with Noah. It truly is end of an era. Not necessarily in a bad way, but an end nonetheless.

    Love and light your (and Josh’s) way!
