34 Weeks and Getting Ready

This past weekend we had our second baby shower!! Luckily the weather didn’t linger around and we had a wonderful time and great turnout! A huge, huge thanks to Marian and Brian for hosting and Wendy and wonderful mother in law, Mena for making it such a wonderful party!! It was really great to see all of Dustin’s family and friends! Thanks for all who came!

I actually have pictures from the shower that I will put up this week!

Today marks 34 weeks and I can hardly believe it! Only 6 weeks until our baby girl’s due date!!! Now that we’ve had 2 fantastic showers, I feel comfortable in case she were to come any day!!! No more wondering where she’ll sleep, or what she’ll wear, or where she’ll be changed, or how we get her home!! Now we’re just going to have to get organized and let the final decorating begin! I already started a little last night, as you can see, I did a very, very pink load of laundry! 🙂

Right now, according to my trusty apps, our baby girl is about the size of a canteloupe or pineapple and weighing in around 4 lbs- 4.5 lbs and around 18 inches long! Also at my last week’s doctor’s appointment I learned, she’s already in a head down position and facing the correct direction. It seems she’s already ready to go, but I think she’ll hang out for a few more weeks taking it easy and plumping up a bit!

We start our very first childbirth class tonight which I am very excited for. Dustin on the other hand is not thrilled about 12.5 hours of childbirth classes over the next few weeks. But I’m sure he’ll be glad he took them on the day she arrives!!

33.5 Weeks

So we finally took another photo last night. I’ll just give up on the whole editing thing because I never seem to remember to do it or make time to do it! Then a picture never gets put up!!

So hope you enjoy! And if you see me this weekend don’t judge me if you see me wearing this dress again! LOL! 🙂

33weeks-2

 

Haven’t done this in awhile……Weekly Pregnancy Stats- 33 Weeks

How Far Along: 33 weeks and 3 days!

Size of baby: 17 inches and 3-4 lbs. About the size of a pineapple!!

Total Weight Gain: Yeah……I think I’ll just keep this one to myself from now on! 🙂 LOL.

Gender: GIRL!

Movement: Her moves have been very consistent and I feel a lot of knees and elbows! She’s head down now so every once in a while I’ll get a foot to the ribs!

Sleep: Ugh….other than the waking up at least twice a night and having to get comfortable every time I need to turn over, I can’t complain. Lol.

What I miss: I never thought I’d say it but I miss my old exercise habits. I miss being able to run and do power yoga. Now I just have to take it easier and even though I feel like I would have the stamina to do it, I can’t get my heart rate too high and I definitely can’t do the yoga poses that I used to with a pineapple attached to my midsection! Prenatal yoga just isn’t the same!

Cravings: I haven’t had any cravings lately. I’ve actually gotten back to some of my old healthy eating habits finally! Which means I actually want to eat vegetables and salads on a regular basis, thank goodness!!

Symptoms: My lower back aches if I’ve been sitting too long or standing too long. I’ve still had heartburn off and on just depending on what I eat. If I do too much cleaning or walking around, I’ll get hip pain on my left side. That gets really annoying!!!

Worst Moment this week: The worst would probably be the hope that the weatherman gave me in seeing snow last Friday. We had nothing by the time we woke up when they kept saying 2-3 inches. You think in 2013 they could at least get it right…..

Best Moment(s) this week: Let’s see….

– Our first baby shower on Saturday! It was a great shower and so good to see all our friends and family. We are so blessed to have so many people care about us and our baby!! Now we’re getting excited about our next shower this weekend!!

– I’m not ashamed to say it…..Last night my friend Mary was able to get us free tix to see Justin Bieber! We may have been the oldest people there without any kids with us but oh well! We still had fun!! As you can see from the below pic, we got some really great seats, I know you’re jealous! 😉
