How Far Along – I’m now 32 weeks preggo! How is this going by SO fast?!?
Baby Name: Kaitlyn Marie
First and Second Pregnancy, Comparison Pics:
THEN – (2014)
NOW (2017) –
I’m Craving / Disliking: The same as all along. Nothing specific, although I’m loving carbs and the occasional sweet treat. Still not a huge fan of chicken.
Exercise: Ugh, it got really cold again, and we ended up with about a foot of snow. So structured exercise hasn’t been that great, although I’m still counting life with a toddler as a daily workout.
Awkward Moment: I bent down really fast and tore a hole in my pajama pants. (I’m talking a top to bottom, right along the crotch area, type hole). Granted, I was home with just Nate and Brady at the time, so it could have been much worse. But still, it was a little awkward. There’s nothing like ripping your pants in front of your husband to get the mood going, if you know what I mean. 😉 (That’ll teach me to wear non-maternity pajama pants for this long).
A Moment I Don’t Want to Forget: This isn’t a moment that I don’t want to forget as much as it’s a moment that I won’t forget… I thought, for sure, that I was going into early labor during the snowstorm. It completely freaked me out and made for a long day. It looks as though I lost my mucus plug (TMI?), and I mistook it as my water breaking. (And on top of that, I had some pretty bad cramps and some serious nausea). Sooooo, it was a long afternoon of waiting, as getting to the hospital would have been quite the trip. In the end, I just rested for a day or two, and I ended up feeling much better. Phew!
Something I Miss: Last week I said that I couldn’t drink decaf coffee anymore, because it was giving me heartburn. Thankfully that doesn’t seem to be the case, as I’ve been able to drink it now. I do miss having the energy to be the upbeat, fun mom that I want to be! Thankfully toddlers are flexible and just learn to go with the flow.
Sleep: Insomnia has returned… I had about two hours of quality sleep last night, and I’m feeling it today.
To-Do List Completions: I deep-cleaned half of the cabinets in my kitchen and hope to finish the project over the next day or so. (To help me watch Brady while I cleaned, I ‘borrowed’ a nine year old from my church. She did a great job, and I got a ton of cleaning done). I also started my hospital bag! 🙂
Purchases: No new purchases this week. I’ve come to the determination that if needed, I can decorate the nursery over the summer (since Kaitlyn will be sleeping in me and Nate’s room for several months). I’m trying to stretch my budget as much as possible right now. Ha, ha.
Symptoms: Insomnia, occasional heartburn, back pain, shortness of breath, exhaustion… and just overall starting to feel as though I’m ready to be done with the pregnancy and to be able to hold my baby girl. Typical Third Trimester complaints. 🙂
Final thought: Only 7 weeks until my C-section!!! 🙂
