tick tock....

so we're almost at the 8 week mark.... only 2 months left. I'm kind of hoping that she comes early, but everyone tells me that most women are overdue with their first. That's not really what I want to hear, but I know she'll be here before we know it! We've got the nursery painted, and a new dresser put in so it's all coming together. Once everything is where we want it (maybe this weekend) I'll post pics. Having that done makes me feel more in control of things and that we'll have everything ready before our little one comes.
On another note, I have been sick more in the last 3 months than in the last 3 years! I know, I know, my immune system is pretty weak right now, but having/not having strep/viral infections isn't helping me enjoy this pregnancy! :) I do love being pregnant, though. I think I'm going to miss feeling the kicks, stretches, and expecially the hiccups at all hours of the day and night. It'll be worth it, though, to hold her in my arms and tell her how much I love her. :)
There's not much else to tell for now. Quenton has been amazing, as usual, and I know that he'll be even more so once the baby is here. I'm so grateful for him! My feet are starting to swell a little, and he is always willing to rub them whenever I need it. I had to teach Young Women's yesterday and the lesson was on procreation. One of the discussions we had was how being sealed to your "true love" and being on the same page with everything that matters is such a blessing to your family. I couldn't agree more! I know that there are SO many things that we probably aren't expecting, and I'm sure there will be moments of breaking down because I don't feel that I can handle things, but without Quenton's support there is no way that I could make it through any of this. He truly is my rock. :) He even said that he'd do a 10km run with me next summer. What a guy!
