Week 37

This has been another uncomfortable week, but you will be here before we know it! I had a Doctor's appointment this week and you were perfect with your heart rate in the 140's. I've been trying to put the finishing touches on your room and been hanging more clothes and preparing for you. I can't wait for you to get here!

Week 36

I love you and am so glad to be pregnant with you, but I am MISERABLE!!! I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to August 10th. I've been having what I think are Braxton Hicks contractions whenever I walk too much or do too much, so I'm trying to take it easy. Your Dad has been so helpful lately! I'm so lucky to have him to help and be such good support.

I've been working on hanging your clothes and packing our bags for the hospital. I just want everything to be perfect, right down to your outfits. I'm really looking forward to your arrival!

We got you a gift to give Audrey. We are planning for Audrey to be the first one to meet you and you are going to give her this reading system called "Tag Junior" with a dog thing that's apart of it. I know she'll love it because she's already seen the box and been "woof woof"ing and wanting me to give it to her.

Well, here's big ole us!

Week 35

You are the size of a honeydew melon, and you're now able to suck a nipple.

Okay. I'm just MISERABLE now! I am counting the days now until you arrive. Totally feeling the "honeydew melon" thing!  LOL!  You are on my gall bladder - which feels like a knife stabbing me, my belling is super tight and painful and my lower back hurts like crazy! And, I'm super tired to boot! You are MORE than worth it, though!! And, there are good things this time around like NO SWELLING! Woo!!

Had our doctor's appointment this week and you were perfect! Momma spilled a tiny amount of protein, which could mean several different things, but Momma is going to take it easy and minimize stress the next month jus incase! Blood pressure was a little higher than normal, but still below "normal". Go back to the doctor in 2 weeks for what I think is our last appointment before you arrive!

Week 34

You are the size of a cantaloupe, and your main job now is simply to continue plumping up.

I've been knocking out your sister's 2nd birthday party this week! It's my last big thing to do and the next month, I can focus on YOU and getting your clothes hung and room finished. I've got a couple of more pictures to add and a fitted sheet that looks like it will arrive after you do, but it's very close! Here I am this week - even bigger lol:

You've (we've) grown a LOT in a month:

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy

Week 33

You are as big as a pineapple, and you're starting to shed your downy hair, called lanugo.

It's SO hot outside! This is one of the hottest summers I can remember. We haven't had but one good rain in 2 months. We've gone a few weeks now with +100 degree temperatures. It's making it very uncomfortable right now for sure. I'm trying to do as much with Audrey as possible before you arrive, but this heat is making it difficult!

We finally got your room mostly finished this week!! Woo hoo! I love it! It's just like I imagined and I hope you love it too! I've got to do a few more things and then I'll take pictures. Still need to wash and hang your clothes, but will focus on that after Audrey's birthday party.

I've also frozen a couple of casseroles this week. I WILL be better prepared this time lol!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy
Energy: None
Cravings: Honeydew melon and lime sherbet smoothies. Yum!

Week 32

You are the size of a jicama, and by now all of your major organs, except for your lungs, are fully functioning.

This was a great week, but I'm still oh so tired. Had an OB appointment on Wednesday and it was great. Your heartbeat was perfect. You GREW so much in the past 3 weeks. Your fundal measurement has been 1 centimeter (1 week) under average. However, this time it was 1 over! And, I have really been feeling it. I've been having a lot of round ligament pain lately and feeling the stretch. Other than that, feeling good just tired and getting slower. My legs feel pretty tight lately too. But very grateful and still walking and exercising!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy
Energy: None
Cravings: BLT's. Followed by a Sonic slush. Yum!

Week 31

You are as long as a bunch of bok choy, and you now turn your head from side to side.

Okay, I'm now about as tired as it gets.  I just don't have the energy or motivation to do much of anything and I'm having to really MAKE myself.  I'm trying to continue walking and taking your sister to the pool, but it does make me really tired.  And, July is looking like it's going to be THE BUSIEST month ever.  We (meaning your Dad) is finishing up painting your room and Momma is finishing up the decoration.  We've also got your sister's birthday party to plan for this month and dance lessons for her twice a week all through July.  However, the nice part is that time will FLY and it won't be very long until I can hold you in my arms and kiss your sweet face!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy!
Energy: Totally GONE.  I can't remember ever being so tired.
Cravings: Anything sweet
