The pregnancy is going perfectly we can't believe it. God made a McMurray baby it is so incredible. I am almost 32 weeks this coming Wednesday. I am finally not throwing up anymore which is really awesome. .although I was kind of just getting used to throwing up everyday as part of the routine. I am very uncomfortable and tired but there is light at the end of the tunnel. This baby moves ALL the time. People from across the room can watch my stomach move all over the place. Our doctor thinks it is so evident because I was so big with the boys that I am super stretchy and can feel everything. Mmmmmmmm . . that might explain the "never wear a bikini again stomach" if you are a close friend you know our fond nickname for my really ugly stomach after the twins:)
We have the c-section scheduled for April 15th at 7:15 am! I was so excited because I chose her Birthday on the 15th b/c #15 is the best number in the whole world. I was number #15 every team I ever played on since I was little, and I of course was #15 when we were state champs, and June 15th is my birthday. So I was thrilled. . . .until I started telling people and this is what I heard almost every time "Oh TAX DAY!"
So now we are in a dilemma I am not excited about her birthday anymore b/c I do not want her to hear the rest of her life . . .oh tax day!! No offense but it is mostly men who have said this to me. Is she going to hear this for the rest of her life. . when I could of picked any date during that week. I was so proud of myself now I feel bad. Now I know most people don't pick the Birthday of their child you get what you get. . but their is nothing traditional about the way McMurrays add babies to their families. Help me on this issue should we change the date?
I keep getting asked if we are still overwhelmed . . . . um YES! But I know with my whole heart God has an amazing plan in all of this. Clean ears, and cut finger and toe nails are really stressing me out. 10 ears to keep clean (aaron is responsible for his own.) Okay this might seem weird but when I taught First grade it totally grossed me out when I was reading with kids and they had waxy yucky ears. 50 fingernails to keep cut and clean and 50 toenails to keep cut and clean. Long fingernails with dirt are so yuck! Oh and the milk we already go through about 4-5 gallons a week. I am also really nervous about nursing with the most active toddler on the planet trashing the house! We are going to be okay I really do know this but 4 kids. . . YIKES it still totally freaks me out.
The ultrasound said she is 4.6 pounds at this point in the 71st percentile. I think she has already passed up Lucia in the womb:) I have gotten the question where is this baby going to go in your house. . am I doing a new nursery? No Way as Lucia would say. She is going to share the nursery with Lucia. . .. another fun vintage painted crib! The only thing I am worried about is sharing the closet. . . Lucia has it jammed packed! The closet might be an issue as long as they share a room. The boys share a closet and I have never thought twice about it infact we are adding shelves to it b/c there is barley anything hanging.
Okay the really fun question NAMES. . . . ???????? We have our list but have not decided. We have decided on the middle name but it is a secret. It is a family name we love and goes really well with all of our choices. We have used family names for all the kids and Aaron and I have family names for our middle name. We will wait to meet her before we decide just like the boys and Lucia. Maybe I will post our list soon . . and maybe not.
Cute litte foot pic!
I know I did not post any belly shots. Getting my picture taken is just not my favorite thing at this point. I don't feel cute. But I will post some soon I promise. Check back in for the belly! Leave a comment and tell me what you think of the Birthday issue - Favorite number vs. Tax Day! I know the favorite number thing is silly. . . . once an athlete always an athlete although I can't run a block or jump an inch anymore.
