This post was meant to go up two weeks ago when I was actually 34 weeks pregnant…but you know life happened and then I got attacked by a death cold and then hubby got attacked by some wicked bug and well here we are two weeks later! So go ahead and cross off 2 more weeks on this adorable count down shirt! And get ready for a bumpdate!
Weight gain: Still going steady. I gain a couple pounds at each appointment which brings me to 23 pounds total right now. I got a fit bit for my birthday and can't wait to get back to working out once I get the all clear after baby! Yoga, zumba, dance, running here I come!
Symptoms: heartburn heartburn heartburn. You baby better have some hair to thank for this! Back and pelvis pain. Baby has moved even lower than normal and its definitely causing some aches and pains. My nausea has been showing up again here and there and food is less and less appetizing again but it is nothing compared to first trimester thank goodness!
Cravings: Fruit! I cannot get enough fruit. I keep wanting to crave veggies but I just do not like veggies! Other than that I just crave random things are random times.
Preparations: It is really hard to not be living in our own place right now because getting ready for baby has been kind of hard! I washed all his clothes and blankets and towels and then had to pack them away. All his nursery stuff is sitting in boxes and bags. His crib is in its box. We will be moving into our new place September 4…which is a week after his due date…which is NOT ideal! But we will make it work!! It will feel so good after we move to get everything settled! I cannot wait to get his nursery all put together! I did however get his hospital bag all packed and am working on mine and we bought his carseat! So I at least feel prepared for that!
Random: My absolute most favourite thing to do is watch baby move my stomach. It is SO real that he is in there moving around. Watching my stomach move and knowing that its his little bum, or his knees, or shoulder. Or feeling his little feet tickle my side which he stretches out! When he sticks his little feet out I like to "tickle" them or push on them and then he curls them back up.
I cannot believe we only have one month left until we meet our baby boy! He may even come sooner who knows! What I do know is I go back and forth every day from being SO ready to just wanting him to stay put for a little while longer. But alas he will come when he comes and as long as he is healthy then thats good enough for me!
Let the countdown continue! eeeek!
