I'm still feeling good. No major complaints other than the fact that I'm carrying high and the baby feels like it's in my lungs. Example A:
Some days I can't sit on the floor with Everett or lean a specific direction because the baby is literally jamming his/her feet into one of my lungs. I carried the exact same way with Everett. I'm not sure if it's just the way my body carries a baby or if it's signs of another baby boy.
I'm up to 19 lbs gained. My goal is to keep it to 30 lbs or less. I gained 33 with Everett. All my clothes are still fitting fine, but I can tell my belly is getting bigger and my thighs for that matter. I had a few nights this week that I couldn't get comfortable and one night that I slept terribly. I blame it on anxiety over Everett's move to his big boy room and bed (he did awesome by the way! details to come).
When I was pregnant with Everett, my face and specifically my nose got bigger. That's not a joke. It started around 29 weeks. Example B:
This is me at 32 wks at my Pittsburgh baby shower. Schnoz in full effect. I've been hoping that the nose/face swelling didn't start with this baby until at least next weekend. Reason being- my brother in law is getting married and the last thing I want are a bunch of family pictures of me with a big swollen face. So far so good. Thank you Jesus.
I still think there's probably a little boy in my belly, although lately I've been accidentally referring to the baby as she. Not sure where that came from? Maybe my friend Lauren's dream: she dreamt that I had a little girl and named her Tetley because I love tea (which I do not). haha. Everett goes back and forth between thinking that he's going to have a little brother or sister. Aaron claims that "he has no idea and doesn't know why I keep telling people he thinks it's a boy" ha. So, we're all over the place on gender.
|It's getting close. Pretty soon I won't be able to see my toes|
|Everett wanted a "turn" taking mama's picture|
I started getting the nursery baby-ready. I cleaned the crib. Aaron moved the mattress back up the highest setting. I organized the nursery closet. We're starting to slowly get ready. It's hard to believe that two months from now we be a family of four. Here's to hoping I've got lots of energy these last 9 weeks to get stuff done and maybe that it won't take 9 weeks to meet our newest little love!
