Walk of Hope & 29 week update

This weekend my family and I along with Baby L & his fam participated in the Walk of Hope.

"The Walk of Hope is a day to for the infertility community and those that care about them to come together and raise awareness. People of all ages can participate as a walker or donor and raise awareness of how the disease of infertility impacts families nationwide. Funds raised from the Walk support local programming which includes support groups and educational events, public awareness initiatives, and advocacy efforts to ensure all family building options are available to all."

It was a great event with plenty for the kids to do, we really enjoyed it. Our favorite part was being able to visit with Baby L (who's not really a baby anymore!) and M&M. L is so smart and sweet and he was telling us all his colors, numbers, etc. I LOVE that M&M still include us in their lives, it makes the whole surrogacy process that much sweeter!
Of course we took lots of pics; here are a few of them:

Isn't he the cutest little guy??!! Can't wait to see them again! ♥

So this week marks 29 weeks...approximately 76 days until Miss B makes her appearance!! I'm so excited for my IPs! IM has been getting Miss B's room ready...she's on the hunt for the perfect paint color at the moment ☺ I can't wait to see pics, I know it's going to be beautiful.
Miss B is definitely active, she must get that from her dad (he's a cyclist). She squirms all over the place and sometimes her kicks/punches are pretty dang strong! I have to push on my belly to try to get her to move into a different spot when it gets uncomfortable.
I'm feeling pretty good these days, just the regular ol' lower back pain and getting tired a bit quicker. Speaking of getting's hell trying to clean the house these days! Who knew washing dishes could take so much out of you?? I might have to invest in getting a cleaner out once a week to do the "dirty work"...I attempted to clean the bathroom the other day and yea....not happening.

Anywho, Kevin and I also celebrated our anniversary this past weekend and we went to the spa, movies and dinner. The movie and dinner were good, but the spa was Heavenly! It was the best prenatal massage I've ever had; wish I could get that done on a regular basis!

This Friday (28th) we have a Dr appt; should just be a regular quick check-up, but I'll keep ya posted ☺ Hopefully Miss B will move around so mom & dad can see/feel.
Until next time, here's my 29 week belly! TTYL!

What a great cause for a walk. I'll have to see if there is one near me.
