It was a big week. The nursery is coming together and we are finally getting furniture assembled for it (yay!). I ordered most of our starter stuff for cloth diapering. Oh, and my favorite part of the week...I had my first shower this past Saturday. It was absolutely perfect. Lori and Janel really did an awesome job. The food was incredible and it was great to just hang out with so many people that I cared about in one room. Baby E got a TON of clothes (spoiled girl already!) plus some other cool stuff. I definitely have a weekend of organizing and washing ahead! Pete also organized a "guys shower" for Ryan. Such a cute idea, and he had a lot of fun.
Truff is not so sure about all the new stuff in the house.
How far along: 35 weeks!
How big is baby: The size of a honeydew melon. 18.2 inches and 5.5 pounds! It will be interesting to see how big she actually is on Monday.
What I've done to prep for baby: The nursery is getting there, and I'm looking forward to sorting through everything from the shower.
Best moment of the week: Two of them: First, my shower, of course. Then, getting my maternity pics back and them turning out awesome. I am so happy we did them! Oh, one more...I GRADUATED FROM MY ENDOCRINOLOGIST yesterday. He said I had great control of my numbers and he'll see me next pregnancy. Yay!
Food cravings: I could be a spokesperson for Papa Murphy's. Seriously. Their pizza is saving my sanity these days. Oh, and Ryan found a chocolate soy milk that tastes awesome, and has like 7g of protein and 5g of carbs per cup. Score!
Symptoms: My current psychosis centers around a rash I've been developing. Do not google pregnancy and rashes. No good can come of it.
Movement: You bet. Even had the doctor and nurses a little freaked out during her NST this week. They started out calling her "sweetie" but by the end of the ordeal, it was "spitfire."
What I’m looking forward to: Finishing the nursery and getting all her stuff sorted and put away. Yay!
Next appt: I have one in about an hour, and then a biophysical profile on Monday.
