Bumpdate-36 weeks!

ALMOST THERE! 




How Far Along: 35 weeks, 4 weeks to go! I really can't believe that I am almost done being pregnant. It's so weird to think that I'm kind of going to miss it.

Total Weight Gain: Holding steady at 30 lbs.

Size of Baby: Baby girl is the size of a crenshaw melon, according to babycenter.com? Its says that she is about 6 pounds now. We have our next appointment on Dec. 27th and we will get to see how big she is when we have the sonogram. 

Maternity Clothes:
I've switched to all maternity clothes, they are just more comfortable at this point.
Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. The movement has become way more pronounced in the past couple of weeks. It almost tickles sometimes. I can really tell that she is getting bigger!

Sleep:
I haven't been sleeping as well as I normally do.I usually wake up around 2 or 3 AM and I'm awake for a god 1-2 hours. It's really annoying because I'm always so tired the next day.
What I miss:
I am starting to miss my body being my own. I think it's just because I'm getting uncomfortable at this point.

Cravings:
Fruit Loops and oreos! Not together of course, ha! I have also really been craving loaded baked potatoes from Dickey's BBQ. They are soooo good! 

Other crazy symptoms:
Nothing really crazy. Heartburn. All. The. Time. It kind of sucks. But I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, so I'm hanging in there! It has really been a challenge to do my normal Christmas running around being this pregnant. It has definitely been different this year!  

Best Moment this week:
I have really been trying to take it easy and listen to my body. When I feel  tired, I try to rest. It's hard to do that with Christmas in full swing. ha! I would say the best moment this week was getting the glider in the nursery. It was the last major thing that we were waiting on and now it's complete. We have everything done in her room and that feels really good.

Thanks for stopping by!

This and That

I have been really bad about posting regularly, but I'm going to try and do better. :) We have been knee deep in "getting ready for baby" mode. We have had all of our showers, I will post on those soon! The nursery is all ready to go, minus a few small details. I feel pretty prepared with baby stuff, but some days I don't really feel emotionally prepared. I know that is probably just a part of it, but it scares me. ha!


I will tell you one thing, this little girl already has had a ton of laundry! ha!

 
In other news, I got a Community Service Award at work. I thought that was pretty cool. I'm not going back into the office after Christmas, I'm still going to work from home until she comes, but the little break will be nice. I feel like I will have a breather to get a few more things done.

 
 
With all of the fun baby stuff going on at our house right now, it hasn't really felt like Christmas to me. I'm kind of bummed about that, I'm really trying to get into the spirit and focus on the "now". It has helped a little that it's not 80 degrees outside anymore, it's actually been cold!
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

Bumpdate: 34 weeks!

Disclaimer: this was taken after working in the nursery and doing TONS of baby laundry. ha! I need to do a side-view pic too, I'll try to get one and add it today.

How Far Along: 34 weeks, 6 weeks to go! Kind of scary! I had a mini panic attack the other day...but all is well now. ha!

Total Weight Gain: around 29 lbs. YIKES! haha! I have my 34 week appointment Monday, so we we will see. I actually didn't gain anything at the appointment after Thanksgiving, so that was kind of nice but I might have made up for it in the past two weeks.

Size of Baby: Baby girl is the size of a butternut squash, according to babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes:
I've switched to all maternity clothes, they are just more comfortable at this point.
Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. The movement has become way more pronounced in the past couple of weeks. It almost tickles sometimes. I can really tell that she is getting bigger!

Sleep:
I haven't been sleeping as well as I normally do. Mainly because I don't like sleeping on my side. I wake up a lot during the night, I think mostly because I'm just not comfortable.

What I miss:
I am starting to miss my body being my own.  I think it's just because I'm getting uncomfortable at this point.
Cravings:
Fruit still sounds good. Nothing really crazy, yesterday I REALLY wanted a stuffed baked potato from Dickey's Barbecue so that's what I got. ha!

Other crazy symptoms:
Just feeling kind of achy and stiff still. Really when I am sitting too long, it hurts to get up. I feel like I'm 80! My feet usually start hurting withing 2.5 seconds of standing up, so that has been fun. ha! The other night I woke up feeling sooooo sick to my stomach. I read that "morning sickness" can come back in the 3rd trimester, so I'm praying that is not the case.

Best Moment this week:
I had another WONDERFUL baby shower last weekend. My good friend and my mom threw it for me. They really went overboard. ha! It was so amazing. This baby is already so loved and showered with everything  that a baby could possibly need or want.

Thanks for stopping by!
