I feel like the countdown has truly begun. I’m 31 weeks now…meaning less than 9 weeks left! This weekend I washed baby clothes and blankets just in case anything happens earlier than we expect. I just need to wash the sheets, changing table cover, and if he gets anymore outfits at the shower in October.
Brad’s sweet great Aunt threw us a luncheon shower on Saturday. We got some great stuff. Finally some BOTTLES, more diapers and wipes, clothes, pacis, blankets, and the tray to go on the bumbo. He has a few pairs of socks now so that’s exciting, ha! We still need some things, but if he came today, we would be just fine. Mama does need to buy him a swaddle blanket though. Speaking of Mama…
That’s right, there is the dress I wear all the time. So comfy…can’t help it! I can’t imagine getting any bigger, but Lord knows I will. I am really trying to eat better. I haven’t been eating so well and my doctor only wants me to gain 10 more lbs—which seems like a TON to me---but at the pace I am gaining let’s just pray he comes a week or two early (only if he is healthy)!
I’m most definitely in the uncomfortable stage. I barely slept AT ALL on Friday night. I wake up multiple times a night and it feels like it takes an act of God to switch positions in the bed. I don’t think I ever just feel good anymore. Back aches, ribs ache, hurts to bend over to pick up anything. As of today, I am only wearing my engagement ring because my wedding ring is smaller and sooo tight. It will all be worth it though.
Can’t wait to see that sweet face.
