Hi, everyone...

Would you believe that I'm still sick? It's tapering off into a cough now, but gee whiz. I really don't want to sound like a whiny baby, but late-pregnancy symptoms are enough to deal with...I don't like adding extra cold and sinus! Speaking of late pregnancy symptoms, sleeping is a nightmare. That's my biggie right now. I just feel like I toss and turn the whole night and get up regularly to go to the bathroom. Even Kurt is noticing, and that says something. I am still using my body pillow, but I just can't find a comfortable way to sleep. I've heard of sleeping in the recliner, but I would feel so lonely...haha! Anyway, I'll keep plugging away until Evy decides to join us. And then I REALLY won't be getting much sleep---what a lovely thing! :o/

I've found that towards the end of being pregnant, I'm really wanting to just be in my house with only Kurt and family. That sounds so rude, and I don't mean for it to...but that's just how I'm responding to these last few weeks. I'm not craving socialization, and I'm just not up to making a lot of outings. But in another sense, I know there are some visits and connections I need to make before Baby gets here. I just can't help how I feel---just keeping it real!

I never did a post about New Year's Resolutions. I am still working at my 101 in 1001. However, I am realizing that it's difficult to keep up with daily/weekly/monthly counts of each time I do something. I'm really trying, but I know it will only get more difficult once the baby gets here. I'm not sure how I'll handle this. What I might do is just give a report when it's all done about how I think I did with each goal. Would that totally disappoint people? I'm really not trying to cop out and not give an "accurate" report, but there will be bigger things going on in my life than computer time in a few weeks! Hopefully everyone understands this. But keep checking my list as I cross things off and begin new projects. One thing I'm about to cross off is finishing the nursery--yay! I know I still haven't posted pictures of so many things. We are getting our new internet package set up soon, so I promise I'm working on it.

I think I'm going to attempt getting in bed now, even though I know sleep will be elusive. I go to the doctor Thursday and this will begin my weekly visits. I'm ready for my little girl to be here and terrified all at the same time. I covet your prayers!

Have a great night (I know I will with my Kleenex and body pillow...)!

I love following your blog! Hope you feel better soon and little baby Evy decides to come soon for your sleeping sake!

I hope you are feeling better, I am so sorry you are sick! I remember not being able to sleep!! It is just one of those things about being pregnant---there is just NO comfortable position!

I miss you and hope to see you soon--love you,

Boo to still being sick. I'm so sorry to hear that my dear.

I don't think it sounds rude at all that you want to be a little bit of a hermit.

Hope your doctor's visit goes well Thursday and I totally understand if you're not up for anything on Friday.

Hang in there Ashley! I know these last few days are tough, but cherish them! I swear you will miss resting your hands on your belly and feeling Evy swim and kick inside of you! I am fervently praying for you and know you are gonna do fantastic! Can you believe you have made it this far and the end is near? I remember you announcing your pregnancy! I have TRULY enjoyed following your pregnancy and I am giddy with excitement for her arrival!
