Last Baby Shower...

We just got home from Winston where Corey's mom threw us a baby shower/housewarming party. We got so many great things for the baby, and our new apartment. It was a miserable trip though. I was nervous to be so far from home when I'm getting this close to labor, but I'm glad we went because ti was a great time, and we haven't been able to see his side of the family in a while since we're living in Asheville right now. If any of you get pregnant one day, don't take a 2 1/2 hour car ride at 11 at night. Ugh, I was ready for bed by the time we left, but of course being 9 months pregnant it is nearly impossible for me to sleep in the car. So I was on the verge of sleep the entire way, with my head bobbing up and down, but couldn't rest =( We were supposed to get more belly pictures made Saturday morning, but when I woke up I had to tell Corey to call and cancel. I'm sure nobody would want to see me with puffy red eyes from lack of sleep. It was nice to have a few days off of work though. I chose July 7th to be my last day of work. I decided instead of going from a full-time job straight into motherhood, I wanted a week or two to relax, and prepare for baby Kynlee. So now, not only am I looking forward to July 21st, I get to look forward to the 7th too!!

Daddy's Day..

Yesterday was father's day, and it's the first time I have ever had a reason to think about it. My dad has never been in my life, so its one holiday I have always overlooked. But now that me and Corey are expecting our first child, I finally have a reason to celebrate it. I can't wait to see Corey become a father, and next year I'll finally get to tell someone Happy Father's day =)

Doctor's Apt...

We had another doctors appointment today, everything is looking great. I had a little sliver of hope that I might be dilated, but no such luck. We start our weekly visits now, so hopefully that will make things seem like they are going by pretty fast. Today was a good day, I had a good dinner with a great friend that I haven't gotten to see much of, so it was great to hang out with her even for a little bit. I'm excited about tomorrow, because we're having our second baby shower, so hopefully we'll get a lot of useful things!

35 weeks, 3 days...

Today was another long hot day working at the pool. I love that I am still able to work, and make money for our family, but it's hard sitting in the heat all day, with her all squished up inside of my tummy. I am so ready for her to get here. I hope I am one of the lucky ones that go in to labor before their due date. I know Corey is ready to meet his daughter too. I am so blessed to have a husband like him. He is so caring, and always puts my needs before his, even though I never ask him to. I couldn't ask for a better man, and I can't wait to see how fatherhood changes his life. I just know he is going to have so much love for her. Yes, I am excited to give birth and finally see what she looks like, but the thing I am most excited about, is to see him hold her for the first time. I know that seems like it should be farther down my list, but I just know I am going to be overwhelmed when I see the love in his eyes as he holds our daughter, and looks into her eyes for the first time. It is truly going to be a blessing, and I can't wait to experience it.

We have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, and we start weekly visits after that. I will post how everything goes!

Angry Sun!!!

It was unbelievably hot today, I think the sun was very angry at me! This summer I am managing a town pool. In the past it has been a great job, because I make good money, and I love being outdoors and having a pool to jump into whenever I want. But this summer is a different story. Everyone keeps telling me how sorry they are that I am pregnant for most of the summer, because I must be so hot. I hate cold weather, so I keep telling them that it doesn't really bother me, because I love summer. Well, up until today I was fine. I haven't been to uncomfortable with the heat, but today was miserable. It reached at good 92 degrees outside, and the pool was too busy for me to head outside for a dip. Luckily I got to swim some laps before the we opened up this morning. I am lucky that I can swim and lay out in the sun for a little bit before I start working. I just wish it wasn't so crowded so I could take a break and jump in sometime during the day. There are always tons of moms, and babies around, and even some pregnant women at the pool. So I get excited and a little nervous seeing all of the little kids. Excited that she is almost here, but nervous that maybe I'm not cut out for it. Everyone says it comes naturally, but I have never even held a baby before so I think it's okay for me to be nervous. But I do know that no matter what, she will have all the love in the world from her father and I, and everyone else in her life.

34 weeks and 5 days!

Well this is my first attempt at keeping a blog, so we'll see how this goes! I decided to start this blog so friends could keep up with how the rest of my pregnancy is going, and hopefully offer up advice, and funny stories to everyone else when ever I start the adventure of being a first time mom.
I know the title says "Mommy Life," but seeing as how I am still pregnant, I can't really blog about being a new mom just yet! It is getting very close though! I have a little over five weeks left, and I am very ready for our little girl Kynlee Jordan Moser to get here. Before I got pregnant, I had never known anyone close to me who had been pregnant, and believe it or not, I have never even held a baby. So I had no clue what to expect, and relied heavily on the internet, books, and my doctor. Being pregnant is a different experience than I could have imagined. Most of the time on tv, you only see the glamorous side; the pregnant "glow", the perfect baby bump, the blissful nine months of compliments on how amazing you look, the dramatic "water breaking", and over-dramatized labor. I wish someone would have told me how uncomfortable it can be, and how annoying strangers can be with their comments. I can't complain too much, I have had a relatively simple pregnancy. Other than being very tired, and having to take a billion bathroom breaks in the beginning, the first trimester flew by without the hint of a bun in the oven. I never had any morning sickness, and I didn't start to gaining weight until around the middle of my second trimester. I knew I was having a girl all along, and at 19 weeks the doctor confirmed my theory. Luckily we already had a name picked out, Kynlee Jordan Moser =) Everything has flown by so far. But now at 34 weeks, I am very uncomfortable and am so ready to get this baby out of my belly! Don't get me wrong, I understand she needs to finish cooking, and I want her to be healthy. I love that we are having a child, I just don't think I am the right person for pregnancy. Some people love it, which is understandable. I love some things, like feeling her wiggle around inside of me (most of the time, sometimes it hurts!) how my husband treats me, and the overall excitement of a baby on the way. But I hate how limiting it can be. I miss laying on my back, sleeping on my belly, caffeine, wine, hot tubs, not being limited on medications, roller coasters, my "skinny" clothes, my old workout routines, and sushi! I can barely eat, because I am running out of room in my stomach to fit a good dinner, I toss and turn at night because my hips hurt from sleeping on my side so much, and I'm not such a big fan of the stretch marks (though they're not bad so I really shouldn't complain.) My least favorite thing, is when strangers offer their unwanted comments and advice. I love the people who just say congratulations, but that is very rare. I don't want people telling me I look like I am about to pop, and there is no way I will make it to my due date, because I am too big. Maybe they should talk to the people who tell me I look to small. Also, don't try to guess if I am having a girl or boy because of how I am carrying, its really annoying and people get it wrong 50% of the time. Today I was just sitting at work minding my own business when a woman informed me that she used to be an ob/gyn nurse, and offered her opinions and experiences on my pregnancy. First she said she knew I was having a girl because I gained weight everywhere, pretty much calling me fat. I didn't realize she knew what I used to look like, and how much weight I've gained. But it got worse when she went in to detail about what happens to your body the last month, infront of all of my co-workers who did not need to hear all of those details. I've decided I am going to make a shirt that says "Yes I'm pregnant, I'm due July 21st, it's a girl, and I know I look like I am about to pop but the doctor says everything is normal, thank you!"
Wow! Sorry for the little rant I just went on, but for anyone who has been pregnant you know how it is, and for those of you have are planning on having a kid one day, it was just a little warning.
Well that was just a little intro in to how pregnancy has gone so far. I'll keep the blog updated the last few weeks until our girl gets here, then I'll share how life is going as a new mother. Thank you for going on this "blogging" adventure with me, and be patient as I learn everything, and get into the habbit of sharing my days!
