34 weeks

I'm 34 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 34 Weeks
Size of baby: Hollis is almost 5 lbs - about the size of a large cantaloupe.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 15 lbs (I've lost since last week)
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular. I'm down to just a few things I can still fit into. ha!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Hollis Barrett Stamps
Movement: She is VERY active - especially in the afternoon and at night
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good!
What I miss: Nothing really - maybe sleeping on my stomach? Or bending over? ha!
Cravings: I've lost my appetite lately - I think maybe my stomach has run out of room?
Symptoms: Lately I've been having a lot of pressure - mostly because she is low and it's the second pregnancy. Heartburn and reflux have gotten bad. I have a HORRIBLE cough that keeps me up all night and I went to the dr today and just like I thought - it's a reflux cough. At least I know this is all temporary!!!
Best Moment this week: Just feeling her move so much! And her nursery is basically done!

(My cardigan is from the best store in the world - T J maxx. ha!)

I've had a great couple of days this week! Harper and I got to go to church for Bible Study this morning which I was SO thankful for! I am loving "Forgotten God". It's all about the Holy Spirit and listening to Him. I was very convicted by some things Francis Chan wrote and said and these are things I've been thinking about for a while. I'm so happy with my comfortable life. I love my sweet family and my little "almost" girls and I feel like my mission field is in my town, church, family and even with this blog. And I feel pretty happy about that. BUT I think I'm scared to actually ever ask God's TRUE will for my life - because what if He asks more of me? What if He wants our family to live in a tent in Haiti or move to Africa? What if He wants me to give up everything and serve Him? Would I be willing? I don't know..........I honestly don't know. As Badly as I pray I'm obedient to God's call...................I think I may truly be scared of what that might be! I don't want to get to Heaven and find out that I missed His ultimate plan for my life.
(I've also read or am reading "Crazy Love" and "Radical" by David Platt and they are putting me in the same mindset).
