Good morning friends! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We stayed pretty busy over here between finishing up packing up the old house and doing some fun family things as well. I can say that the old house is EMPTY and all we have to do is clean it this week. The new house is almost unpacked … I can probably finish that today or tomorrow. Then it’s on to maybe doing some more painting and getting things on the walls. Since I am 34 weeks I should probably start on the nursery at some point too
Totally forgot to take a belly photo until like 8:30PM last night. Oops.
Baby is the size of a cantaloupe – or about 4 3/4 pounds and 18 inches long. Baby B measured 5lbs 2oz last Wednesday so I am assuming she is closer to 5 1/2 pounds haha. Her legs are also measuring several weeks ahead.
She’s adding on more fat layers which will help her regulate her temperature when she is born
Her nervous system and lungs are continuing to mature
Weight Gain: I am at 19 pounds weight gain. Goes to show that this pregnancy even though I have gained less so far the baby is still measuring just like Em. Crazy how that works! I really attribute the lower weight gain to having to chase her around all day
Fitness: Definitely slowing down. Not because of how I feel but because of the move. Going up and down our stairs 1000x a day is a decent workout. So is carrying boxes. I did manage to get in yoga, a run, some walking, and a CrossFit workout last week though!
Sleep: Meh. Still waking up. I was up at 4:30AM this morning to a dance party in my belly that I wasn’t invited to. I am also just really feeling the third trimester fatigue. Babies put on most of their weight in the final weeks of pregnancy which takes a lot of energy from mama.
Baby Position: As I mentioned last week baby was back to breech on Wednesday and then transverse on Friday. She is still moving all around in my belly. I know she has gone head down at various points based on her kick locations. My OB and I have a plan for all of this depending on where she is at at my 36 week appointment. Sending spinning baby vibes my way though
Aches and Pains: My lower right tailbone is starting to ache more and can effect my leg a little bit. Overall I am just becoming more and more uncomfortable and achy. The joys of later pregnancy
Emotions: I am a pretty rational person and am not overly emotional about many things … except my children. It’s hard to believe in a month or so Chris and I are going to be the parents of TWO amazing little girls. I can’t way to see who B looks like – will she get my coloring like Emmalyne did? Or will she get more of her daddy’s Asian genes?
To Do List: Umm … it’s massive. With the move and the fact that this is our second daughter we haven’t done much. Now, with 6ish weeks to go I feel a sense of urgency (nesting) to start getting things done. Luckily we own most everything we need but it needs to be cleaned, re-assembled, etc.
Another busy week is ahead of us over here. I am pretty sure I am going to be saying that for the next 6 weeks haha. Have a great Monday!
