*A post I wrote a few months ago but didn't publish.
It is hard to believe we are coming quickly to the end of this pregnancy and Lord willing meeting our new little man. This week marks 33 weeks. This has to be my fastest pregnancy yet. I am at the my body is achy, uncomfortable and tired stage. As I told a friend this morning at church, this was so much easier when I was 23 (the age I was with my first child).
This made me think of writing down some statistics mainly out of my own curiosity.
So in the past 14 years ...
*I have been pregnant for 81 months which equals 6.75 years. That is almost 7 years people...pregnant for 7 years. Holy cow! Steve and I have been married for 15 years this past August (good thing he likes it when I am pregnant.)
*I have been nursing one of our babies for a total of around 7 years as well. So in other words, I have been either been pregnant or nursing the last 14 years.
*Conservatively, we have changed around 25,000 diapers. I don't even want to calculate how much money that has cost us (but Steve did and says it's around $8,000). We should have started using cloth diapers with our first baby.
*We've celebrated 58 birthdays with our kids. All of our birthdays range between December and August. We celebrate three birthdays in one month, two birthdays in one month, and a single birthday in three separate months.
*I've given birth in two countries, but also only two cities and in only two hospitals.
*The same doctor has delivered seven of our children and a midwife delivered one.
*I have completed one sprint triathlon...while pregnant.
*We have always struggled picking boys names, and joke that this baby boy will be named "Steve Jr."
