How Far Along: 33-35 Weeks
Gender: A sweet baby girl!!!
Movement: Someone gets the hiccups a couple of times each day now. Her movements aren’t as often as they were just a week or so ago. I think she is running out of room in there! I certainly feel like there is literally no more room! She is officially in the “birthing position” with her head down!
Symptoms: The feet and ankle swelling is so bad every.single.day. I literally only have two pairs of shoes I can wear and well…they don’t match everything. Most mornings I can’t even fit in to my workout shoes! Along with the swelling is the lovely back pain. Ouch! It is all normal and to be expected though!
Sleep: It is getting painful to lay down for long periods of time so sleep is a little sparse. I wake up several times a night to go to the bathroom and just walk around to get my back or side to feel better.
Cravings: There isn’t really anything that I just had to have lately, but I have been indulging a lot.
Aversions: None. There have been a few meals where I literally didn’t know what I wanted to eat though because nothing sounded good. Hanger problems.
Maternity Clothes: Dresses and maternity leggings are still my jam. I basically wear the same 6 outfits over and over.
Missing:Nothing I can’t live without.
Nursery Plans: Our nursery chair came in last weekend!!! I am really happy with the material and color. Mac approves as well because every time we go in to that room, he immediately jumps in the chair like it is his throne.
Last weekend we also went to Buy Buy Baby and a few bargain hunts to pick up items we still needed. We got a mattress, crib sheets, changing pad, changing pad covers, a swing, cube shelves for her closet and a few other small things. I ordered an ottoman and a thermometer for her online and we have the dresser picked out finally and just need to order and pick it up. I haven’t hung anything on the walls because I am waiting to have all the furniture in there, so I am really excited to get this all done!!!
I spent last Friday night washing and organizing all her clothes, folding blankets, and putting together her crib mobile while listening to music. It was perfect. My favorite thing is just hanging out in that room! As soon as you open the the door, the smell of Dreft and new diapers hits you and it is my favorite scent ever. So crazy she will be in there is just a few more weeks!
My weekly appointments started this Tuesday. The doctor was happy with her heartbeat, measurements, my blood pressure and that she was in the right position. She said that she can literally come at anytime now and we discussed a little about my delivery and that I needed to have my hospital bag packed. I am getting really excited!!!
