Not too much to say over the past couple of weeks except that I'm pretty sure Caleb is growing! My tummy has definitely grown, though I was still able to wear a non-maternity dress to church today.
I had a visit to my doctor this week and she said that everything looks great. We should have one more ultrasound to check growth in 2-3 weeks. Excited about that! I actually wore the same outfit that day that I wore at 19 weeks. Um...a little different, huh?!
Emily Brandt. She was great with Kate...and, oh my goodness...we got a preview today of the pictures and I am SO excited about them. Love them and can't wait to see more! She has a great plan and was wonderful to work with. HIGHLY recommend her!
Due Date: September 25, 2014
How Far Along: 33 weeks 3 days
Fruit/Veggie: honeydew melon, pineapple, cabbage - 17-19 inches, 4-4.5 pounds
Gender: It's a BOY!
exercising almost daily. However, it's a LOT harder! I've slowed down some and can't do somethings. Tonight I was doing a Jillian Michaels' video that I've memorized...but was having trouble doing some of the things like the warm up that is twisting down to touch your toes and doing a circular "kick over the chair." Yeah...doesn't work so well anymore!
Sleep: I'm pretty consistently up at least 2-3 times a night. Thankfully, I fall asleep almost immediately upon
getting back in bed.
The only problem is if we are awakened by Kate. I think it's harder to fall back asleep because I am startled awake instead of just wake up. Hopefully she won't continue this! On the other hand, I have decided that this is God's way of preparing moms for baby. I wake up pretty much on a schedule every 2-3 hours.
Cravings: I really don't have cravings right now though I'm still ENJOYING breakfast stuff and ice cream. I'm actually having a hard time planning menus because I don't really want anything.
What I love: Feeling and watching the baby move! Our family pictures. Saw proofs on four today and I'm in LOVE with them. I can't wait to see them all...and for our newborn session! I'm also enjoying not feeling guilty about eating ice cream...though I do try to not eat TOO often!
What I miss: turning over in bed easily, moving easily, going full out at the gym
What I'm looking forward to: BUYING furniture for the
house and nursery (pretty sure we know what we want!), a couple more showers, seeing our family pictures...and Kate starting KINDERGARTEN tomorrow! BIG DAY!
What I'm thankful for: My sweet husband, always taking care of me. A healthy pregnancy. That Kate is excited about school. Finally deciding to get pictures made and doing it.
