"there's a whole lot of you there"

Someone said this to me the other day.

I'm not easily annoyed or offended so I just laughed and asked them to bend over and pick up the pen I had dropped because there's not sense in not getting some sympathy help from someone who can see me large and in charge.

And I love it.

My hips ache, my left foot is often swollen and my right leg twitches none stop. I have heartburn just about every day and a little boy with constant hiccups.

And I'm not waddling....

Ive got pregnancy swagger...

Would you believe me if I said that I love this beautiful opportunity? That even as I complain about a physical ailment, I am rejoicing because I am having a child. You best believe I don't take that for granted and I appreciate it.

I "swaggered" out to the front yard today to water these beautiful red tulips that Chad planted for me last fall and then roped him into taking a picture of me...waiting at 36 weeks...for my son.

Indeed there is a whole lot of me. Both girls were pretty petite and I never got this large with them, I am certain.

Four weeks to go...


  1. Hi there pretty lady! I've been thinking of you and started wondering why I hadn't seen any pics of your sweet girl or adorable belly on FB lately. Did you leave? Miss your regular posts! Praying for a safe delivery for you and little Beck. Can't wait for that little boy to meet the fabulous mom God picked for him!

  2. Internet (but also local) stranger here just wanting to say so many of us are still with you, and thinking of you all. You are beautiful, and I'm so glad to see the swagger. Looking forward to tales of Beck. He's a lucky dude to join the Needham family.

  3. Hey!
    Thinking the same thing as Jen up there. Laying here in Dacula, 1230 AM listening to the thunderstorms and the Lord brought your family to mind. Then I think, hmm... haven't seen posts lately from her on FB. Looked at my phone b/c sometimes I get a limited view on my phone. No Susanna. I understand a leave of absence is needed from time to time to focus on priorities! I just wanted to let you know that I'm sending up prayers for you & the whole family (including Beck) b/c I believe when the Lord places someone on your heart in the middle of the night, there's reason! Not necessarily bad either.. hoping to hear of a successful, happy & healthy delivery soon! Hugs & prayers from Dacula!

  4. You look so cute! We are so excited for you guys!
