Losing my energy

I don't know if it's the 5:00 a.m. walks or just the fact that I'm walking around with 20 extra lbs, but man am I tired. My new bedtime is officially before 9:00 pm. Lame huh??

At least the swelling has gone down in my feet. My wedding band continues to be tight, but I'm determined to wear it this entire pregnancy.

Side note: only 2 more weeks until my first baby shower...I'm so excited!!

33 Weeks and the last dr appt.

Last week we had our second every two week appointment with the doctor. Found out I get tested for Group B Strep at 36 weeks and the internal checks start at 38 weeks. It's finally all coming together. Well while the dr was feeling my stomach he got this concerned look on his face and ordered the nurse to bring in the ultrasound machine. Turns out he thought the head was up. Well after the ultrasound we saw the baby's head was indeed down and now know that our little boy has buns of steel.

Over the weekend my husband was in the Channel 7 Golf Tournament. So my mom came down and we walked all 18 holes with him. My feet were killing me by the end of the day. Plus it rained on and off most of the day too. However, I did get offered free french fries from the lady behind the bar.... :)

Maternity Pictures

Last week at 31 weeks pregnant I got my maternity shots taken. It was a beautiful day and our photographer Em captured so many great moments. We are so thankful that she was able to take these first pictures of our family. Check out her blog for a sneak peak at our pictures (I'm going to attach them as well)

8 Months and counting

Yay for 8 weeks or less left for the arrival of our little man. I decided to add this popular questionnaire into my blog this week.

* How far along?: 32 weeks.
* How big is baby?: On average 3.75 lbs and almost 17 inches long.
* Maternity clothes?: I'd say about 95% of the time
* Stretch marks?: None yet, thank goodness.
* Sleep?: Becoming more difficult. Sleeping on my side just isn't doing it anymore. Plus I get up for the bathroom 2-3 times a night.
* Best moment this week?: Just him kicking me letting me know he's still in there.
* Food cravings?: Still the french toast and syrup.
* Labor signs?: Some cramping
* Belly button in or out?: Beginning to poke out.
* What I miss: Being fun. Instead of being the last one to leave the party, I'm one of the first.
* What I'm looking forward to: Meeting our little guy and being able to get off the couch with ease.
* Milestone: Yay for reaching 8 months!

31 weeks and 4 days

Here is my attempt to take a picture of myself. This week has been so busy Tim and I have barely seen each other.

This and that

No pictures yet this week. I was slacking over the weekend, but hope to have a 31 week picture up tonight.

We're getting our maternity pictures taken by our good friend Em tonight. She took our engagement and wedding pictures and does a fantastic job so we have no doubt these pictures will turn out fabulous. Her eye for creativity is amazing so we're excited to see what she has in store for us.

In other news, Tim got me a pregnancy massage over the weekend. Man was that much needed. It was so fantastic to get some tummy time and just relax and for 24 hours my back actually didn't hurt.

Bathroom breaks....suck!! I bet I go to the bathroom every 40 - 50 minutes. Our little man keeps pushing on my bladder and when I have to go, I have to go NOW. There is no waiting 5 or 10 minutes.

Despite all of the negatives to be pg, I'm so excited that in less than 2 months I'll get to meet him and love him forever.

I'm right on...

....With the way I'm measuring that is. So for all of those people that are saying I must have twins in there or oh wow you still have 2 months to go........YOU'RE WRONG!! My stomach measured at 31 centimeter and by 40 weeks should be 40 centimeters. I should grow a centimeter per week from here on out.

Other news from our dr. appointment yesterday, the heartbeat was strong - 148 beats per minutes. He was feeling around on my stomach showing Tim where the head was and the butt. Head is down, but hurt quite a bit when we was pushing on it.

Yesterday Tim and I and Tim's sister went to the putting green and putted around for a bit. We had lots of mini competitions on who could get closest to the pin. It was fun.

30 weeks

Woot, 3/4 of the way done! I got a lot of sun this weekend because we were outside staining the deck. What a project, but now it's done.

I'm starting my two week appointments tomorrow. I plan on asking the dr how I'm measuring since people keep making comments to me about how big I look. I'm curious to see if I'm on track, smaller or bigger. I'll report back with his answer.
