39 weeks with Our little Tie Breaker!

Doing good....or should I say, Hanging in there!  I'm actually 39 weeks now and I would say I was trying to enjoy my last week/days being pregnant, because this is more for this womb!  However, I have a head cold that started Friday and there's not much enjoying going on :-)

On the pregnancy front...just feeling large and in charge and out of breath!
Trying to finish things up to prepare for this little person, however, all my good "nesting" was used up on getting ready and surviving Christmas and New it hasn't happened like I thought it would.  All my cabinets aren't organized, haven't decluttered enough, closets are hit or miss, wanted to do some more blog updates.....blah, blah blah!!

This was 37 weeks. Brent braided Anne Lowry's hair, she loved it and I was quite impressed with his skills!

Will the boys or girls "win?!"

Not going to lie, it is kind of starting to drive me crazy and I'm so ready to meet him/her....
The hardest part is that we haven't decided on a name and I'm stumped because I don't know if I'm naming a boy or girl.
It's also starting to affect my sleep....think Christmas Eve when you were a kid.  Not good, I need my sleep because I know what is coming!!

--In the beginning, I felt very strongly it was a boy.  However, for the last several months I've been thinking definitely a girl.

--I need to remind you guys that I am 0-2 in the guessing/motherly instincts regarding sex.  I thought Hampton was going to be a girl and I was certain Anne Lowry was another little boy!!  So according to's a girl?  See above, I think I'm trying to compensate for my history :-)

--All three of my pregnancies have been very similar in general.  The one difference between Hamp's and AL's pregnancies was acne.  With Hampton, my face was mostly clear and with Anne Lowry I had a lot more breakouts (they say girls steal your beauty :-). According to this, it's a boy.

--I'm liking both sweet and salty this pregnancy....more sweet as time has gone on....girl?

--Out of all my babies....this one has had the lowest heart rates.  Just yesterday, it was 128....boy?

--Chinese Calendar says girl.

--Anne Lowry has always been team pink and is adamant she wants a sister until recently and sometimes says boy now.  She came with me to my Dr.'s appointment the other day and while we were waiting she hugged my belly then said, "if it's a will still be cute!"   Hampton is a little more indifferent but says and wants a boy.  Although, just the other day he said that if its a girl he's going to "walk out the door."  Meaning run away, ha!  I said, "you love Anne Lowry, she's a girl."  He thought for a moment before saying he just didn't want a "baby girl."

--Random tidbit...have had way more heartburn this go round than with the other two....lots of hair?

I honest to goodness have no preference, I have pros/cons of each :-)...I just can't wait to meet and hold this sweet little baby in my arms!

Crazy to think the next post will be introducing the newest little Hardin :-)
