We had te 32 week baby appt this week and E’s Heartrate dropped a bit to 135 from his/her consistent 145 and doc confirmed as of now baby is head down (hopefully they will stay that way!). I was measuring a week ahead… so we will see when this baby decides to make an appearance!
Baby hasn’t stopped moving all week. I don’t think E sleeps … ever. In the weekly updates they email me, they say that baby is supposed to be sleeping 90% of the time,but I can guarantee that is NOT the case in E’s situation.
I’m feeling bigger every day, and I know it’s the only beginning. They start to gain 1/2 a pound every week from here on out and I know I can’t imagine how much bigger my belly will get in the next few weeks!
We finally moved the nursery around and Josh took a panoramic of the room.This goes to prove that even if you live in a tiny apartment you can make room for baby! The other half of this room is our office (we both work from home) which will be interesting once baby arrives.
One of our worries is how we are going to manage to share our office with our nursery and still get all of our work done. We will see!
I’m starting to have more blah feeling days. Headaches, leg and back pain on and off, basically I’ve made it 33 weeks without feeling very pregnant and it is all starting to catch up to me this week!
Easter was this weekend, we had a wonderful brunch with Josh’s family and then followed that with a yummy dinner at my family’s house. Lots of food all day! Every holiday that goes by makes me excited to think that next time we are celebrating the holiday we will have a tiny babe with us! I ate entirely too many chocolate bunnies, but E didn’t seem to mind the added sugar. I’ll detox on sugar next week 🙂
I finally ordered a diaper bag this week (what an ordeal)! I was looking for so many different requirements in a diaper bag (looks, price, pockets, size etc) … and knowing that I’ve never carried a diaper bag I’ll probably end up needing a new one with different requirements. O well, I love this one and hope it holds up!
My good friend Sara had her baby this week! Love him already. He was a few weeks early but came out healthy and happy! Every new baby that is born in my circle of friends makes me more and more excited to have my own! All of these babes are blessed with such loving parents 🙂
Size of Baby E: Somewhere around 17 inches and 4 lbs. They say E is the size of a Durian Fruit. I’ve seen durian in SEAsia and it is a HUGE fruit… I don’t think my belly is that big 🙂
Best moment of the week: Spending Easter with our family. It has been a few years since we have been home for the holiday so it was nice to be able to be home and eat so much delicious food with everyone 🙂
Obsessions/Cravings? Sugar… thanks to all of the chocolate bunnies around!
What I’m most looking forward to this week: Still can’t wait for Amanda to have her baby – waiting patiently for that little boy to decide he is ready to meet us! Also my first family shower is this week, Josh’s aunt is throwing it and I can’t wait to get with everyone and celebrate E – I’ll share the photos once I get them uploaded of course!
What I miss the most: Feeling as if I have time… Every week that goes by I feel more excited… more anxious.. and busier. There is so much to prepare when it comes to my work, the house and my mental state before baby comes. Josh seems to handle this part better than I do – but I always have so many balls up in the air and I don’t want to let any drop. We will see!
Workouts: Ran most of the week with a few days off. Starting in a few weeks I am going to transition to longer walks and more strength training. I need to start getting my legs and abs in tip top shape to deliver this baby quickly and easily 🙂
Sleep: Sleep for a few hours a night and then wide awake the rest. Mini migraines teamed with restless legs and constant urges to pee keeps me busy. Who has time for sleep!
Movement: As always busy baby.
Symptoms: The headaches are coming back, im getting them more in the middle of the night and they stick with me until I get up in the AM. I pulled out the foam roller so I am trying to do more massage work with my hips and sore muscles to help with the pain.
