Excuse the no filter, no makeup, just rode in a car for 5 hours with no shower bump picture 😊 Also we take my bump pictures on Fridays so this picture is from last week (even though tomorrow I’ll be 32 weeks!).
Only a few more weeks of these updates – well more than a few – since we’re almost to the home stretch! The biggest obstacle this week?! Telling everyone they have to get a flu shot if they want to see or hold the Baby! We haven’t told friends yet but we started to tell family and while most understand and have already gotten it for us – some aren’t so thrilled… Sorry but we are definitely going to be those parents in the beginning! The docs say the flu is going to be pretty bad this year so we need all the protection we can get for Baby G to stay healthy! Did any of you have to do this?!
Moving on to our bumpdate and all the info!
How Far Along? 31 weeks!
Size of Baby: A bunch of asparagus 🙂
Gender: Dying to find out!! We’re waiting and still have another 8.5 weeks but I can’t wait to see if we have a Baby Boy or Baby Girl!
Weight Gain: I’m up 25 pounds (at least at my 28 week appointment, I was!). I was hoping I’d only gain the recommended 25-30 pounds but have a feeling I’ll be a bit over since I still have a bit to go!
Maternity Clothes: I’m wearing both maternity and non-maternity still! Pant wise.. give me all the maternity leggings and jeans! But dress wise.. most are non-maternity! I have a few maternity tops (like the one I wore in the last life lately post) but thankfully I can still wear a lot of my non-maternity tops since I never wore too fitted of tops!
Nursery: The crib is up!! I repeat.. the crib is up! We had our carpets cleaned last week so we could finally start doing more in the nursery! Logan put the crib up last Sunday and now we’re just waiting to order our glider and dresser to figure out where I want things to go! I’m such a visual person so I need to see it before I decide (something Logan hates!).
Movement: Baby G is moving around like crazy! Some days more than others but almost always at night. Baby moves and more than just kicks but full ripple effects 🙂 It would be SO interesting to see what Baby looks like while he/she is doing all those movements since at our 19 week ultrasound, Baby didn’t move a whole lot! I love feeling it though – it’s like Oh hi Baby G! 🙂
Symptoms: Thankfully my heartburn has been a bit more under control thanks to the Doc prescribing me some meds to help! But I’m hoping it means Baby will have lots of hair! Logan and I were pretty much bald so it’ll be interesting to see what Baby comes out with! I’m exhausted almost always and have to pee every 10 minutes but other than that I’m doing good with no symptoms! Still feeling good so that’s been nice!
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping pretty good… weird dreams galore but otherwise pretty good! Thankfully I’ve learned to like my Snoogle pregnancy pillow – not quite at LOVE yet but I like it and it’s been more comfy for my hips when I use it! I still get up to pee all the time but Logan and I switched sides of the bed (begrudgingly but since I was so sick that one week, I agreed to get to the toilet faster!) so it’s been easier to get to the bathroom to pee! I’m happy if I only get up twice!
Cravings: I haven’t really had any cravings where I was like “I HAVE to have it!!” but I still do love sweets and pizza! Thankfully I haven’t had any weird ones either because I’m not sure I could handle that! haha!
What I Miss: Hmm I miss sleeping on my back!! OH my, does it feel good when I lay on my back for even 2 seconds before rolling back over to my side. I miss wearing a lot of my clothes that I love for fall. I miss caffeine – and a good cold sub sandwich! But I’d give up anything for this baby so I’m good! And honestly, since I passed my glucose test, I’m more than happy to give up anything else (aside from all sugar!) 🙂
Best Moment This Week: My baby shower with my in-laws was pretty great! And seeing the crib in the nursery! It still feels SO surreal but slowly it’s feeling more real! We also finished our birthing classes this week which is crazy! I know not everyone does these but they definitely made us feel more knowledgeable and I’m all about the more I know.. the better!
Looking Forward To: Getting the nursery together! And also having NO plans until Baby is here! I mean, we have a few things here and there but nothing that we’re traveling too far for or for too long! I’m excited to relax and start getting the nursery more put together little by little!
I can’t believe that I’m 32 weeks tomorrow which means after that it’ll be less than 8 weeks – haha! Thank you all for following along over all these weeks and for all your support! I truly am so thankful for this experience and definitely am not taking any of it for granted!
