Okay, so I promise this will be my LAST two week combined blog post. I think now that the holidays are officially over I can get back on my regular schedule of blogging. It is absolutely insane how fast the past month flew by, and here we are at 32 WEEKS already! It's safe to say that panic mode is definitely creeping in. I am realizing more and more each day that this baby girl will be here in a VERY SHORT time frame regardless of if we are ready for her or not. So, I am trying my best to breathe and get things done as much as I can each day for her arrival.
So, let's recap weeks 30 & 31!
Symptoms: Honestly, I feel like a broken record when it comes to symptoms. I don't have many but the ones that I have are definitely consistent! Acid reflux of course is hanging on strong and quite honestly one of my TOP things that I am looking forward to about not being pregnant any more is kicking that nasty thing. Other than that I am constantly out of breath! I feel extra out of shape, but I know it's just the fact that baby girl is growing bigger and bigger each day that keeps me from being able to breathe normally. I am also really starting to feel super duper tired again. It's getting hard to get out of bed in the morning and each night I feel like by 8 I could easily call it a night.
Bumpdate: I am starting to feel SO ROUND!! It's crazy! I honestly feel like I am smuggling a basketball in there! Bending over to pick things up and just every day tasks are definitely more complicated now, but she is growing nice and strong and that's all that matters to this Momma!
Cravings: Still digging on my sweets for sure! I started craving cantaloupe again which was one of my BIG cravings early on. Besides that, I have really had a crazy craving for cookies and cream ice cream...YUMMY!! What can I say, baby girl likes her sweets! :)
What I'm looking forward to: Getting to have my baby showers!! FINALLY!! I cannot wait to celebrate this precious girl with friends and family! I am so excited about it! We also are going to tour the hospital birthing center on Monday! It's all becoming so real!!
Best moment this week: Bonding more and more with this little girl! I love all her little jabs and kicks, and it's so fun to talk to her and realize that soon and very soon I get to smooch all over her. As crazy and overwhelmed as I am about not being 100% ready for her to get here, I am just as excited about meeting her!!
