8½ Months and My Countdown Begins Until I'm Shuffling! :)

Wow, I never thought I'd finally get to this point.  It seems like forever and ever but my countdown has officially begun! Even though my Due Date is March 8th, I've always been a couple of weeks early so we'll see how this one goes. I really hope I make it until March but I know by the end of February I'll feel like I've already had enough! :)  
This is me at 4, 7 and now at 8 Months.
So now the waiting begins... Thank God baby girl seems healthy and I seem to be doing well too.  I've gained some weight even though doctor says I could gain some more.  At my last checkup, two weeks ago when I was 8 months, I weighed 137lbs which was a weight gain of 4lbs in two weeks.  This was a good sign as the baby is gaining baby fat getting ready to be born.  And now at 8½ months let's see how much I now weigh or have gained since my last check up.  I'm pretty sure I'm gaining now being that all I seem to think about it food and more food but that's normal, I think, on the last month. :)

So this is it for now.  Besides getting fat because I eat everything I see, waddling like a penguin when I walk, having elephant feet and having major back pains at night, everything seems normal.  I can't stress enough how much I miss my old energetic self!  I have so much to do and so much I miss doing but the one thing I miss the most is running... it's funny the small things that mean so much when your body has been taken over.  I see my treadmill just sitting there all sad and all I can think of is "one day baby, you and I will meet again."  For right now my body is going through another marathon and work out unlike anything else a body can endure and I'm blessed to say it's been hanging in there pretty good.  But like all good athletes that tough it out, I can finally see the finish line and I am loving this feeling more every single day!
One last thing I know is for sure, when I'm done with all this I'm gonna do so serious LMFAO shuffling! :)
