she was due. oh-so-due.

March 12, 2010 was my due date with Jessi Girl. A date that for 9 months I counted down the days, hours and minutes to. But like all first time moms, I made the mistake of getting that date stuck in my mind. So in 13 days we will celebrate Jessi's 2nd birthday :)

I hated being pregnant with that girl. She was just as stubborn in my belly as she is now. I threw up until 32 weeks pregnant with her, and it was basically zero fun. I was also working 50-60 hours most weeks, so that likely had a lot to do with it.I gained 50lbs, that I'm still trying to lose and regretting those delicious sausage biscuits from McDonalds. Yum.

We were living in Huntington Beach, CA, and our whole family came out to stay with us while waiting for the arrival of our firstborn. With her refusing to come, everyone came...and went. Thankfully my parents and hub's mom were able to extend their trips so we had a little family in town. It was a fun weeks hanging with the fam, but I felt like everyone was staring at me the entire time wondering what was taking so stinking long!

It's crazy how it's already been 2 years since I was so pregnant with our sweet Jessi. Really looking forward to celebrating this month with her!!!
