31 weeks

Single digits to go!!! :D 9 more weeks!

PICS: This is me at 31 weeks. More lazy Sunday clothes!

How far along: 31 weeks!

How big is baby:
 The size of a pineapple. All 5 of her senses work now and her eyes can react to light!

Total weight gain: My guess is 18-19lbs. The scale at the vet said 192 and some change, which is about a pound more than I was at my last appt. Doing pretty well.

Sleep: I am sleeping which I am so thankful for. My back aches when I wake up and getting out of bed is getting more and more tricky. Some mornings I feel like a beached whale!

Maternity Clothes: Same stuff. Today I am wearing black leggings with a t-shirt, kinda revealing but oh so comfy! I figure I'm not going out into public, so I am good. Matt seems to appreciate them :D

Best moment of the week: We had our all-day childbirth class yesterday and I am so proud of my wonderful husband. He is going to be a great birth coach!

Exercise: nada, zip, zilch...unless you count little walks with Jenny around the neighborhood...

Symptoms: I am still the pregnant lady most other preggos hate...other than being more sore after a long day I am feeling great! 

Movement: My little wiggly girl is wiggly as usual. I am hoping inside movement doesn't equate to outside movement once they are born! If so we are in trouble!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: 1 more week until break! 2 weeks off to get her nursery finished and wash clothes and "nest" a little bit. Also lots and lots of sitting around doing a whole lotta nothing!

What I miss: Not getting winded when I walk upstairs...

Next appt: October 4th for a check-up, Tues for our hospital tour

30 weeks!

I cannot believe 30 weeks have gone by so fast! Only 10 more to go!

PICS: This is me at 30 weeks. Lazy Sunday clothes FTW!

 How far along: 30 weeks!

How big is baby:
 The size of a cucumber. Her skin is getting smoother and she is now strong enough to grasp a finger!  

Total weight gain: 17lbs as of my appointment last Tuesday. Started at 174, now at 191. Not sure if I have gained any since then. My appetite has gone crazy!

Sleep: Uncomfortable. Ugh. I AM sleeping however which is better than most women, but lots of tossing and turning.

Maternity Clothes: Same old, same old. I HAVE broken into the super comfy lounge pants, which are awesome for holding the couch down on weekends!

Best moment of the week: Got some pre-baby shower gifts from my in-laws! I am so excited about them! :D 

Exercise: 6.56 miles all on Saturday. 2 hours straight of walking followed by a long nap!

Symptoms: I am slowing down and beginning to waddle a bit more. 

Movement: Active as usual. She goes crazy after I eat and when I sit down after long periods of movement. 

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: October break in 2 weeks! So ready for a break!

What I miss: Being able to play my clarinet without getting winded.

Next appt: October 4th

Nursery Pictures

Here is a picture slideshow of Rosalee's nursery. We took before and after pictures of the walls and also of the wood Matt used to make the shelves. The lights Matt put on the shelves are LEDs that can change color with a remote! They are way cool! The only things missing are the curtains, closet covering and her name in Disney font above the crib. Almost done! Will post another slideshow when it is completely done!

29 weeks

Only 11 weeks to go! Craziness! I will do a nursery post soon as it is pretty much done!

PICS: This is me at 29 weeks. Looking much more disheveled than last week!

 How far along: 29 weeks!

How big is baby:
 The size of an acorn squash! She's growing very fast these days and is putting on more and more fat! 

Total weight gain: 17lbs as of my appointment on Tuesday. Started at 174, now at 191.

Sleep: Getting more uncomfortable each night. I am still sleeping ok, just have issues when getting up and some minor aches/pains.

Maternity Clothes: I finally sorted through all of my clothes and they are in my closet, ready to wear. Had to put non-maternity clothes in the spare bedroom closet to make room.

Best moment of the week: I got to see my mom at my soon-to-be sister in laws bridal shower and she felt Rosalee kick and my aunt Janet felt her hiccup. Love sharing these moments!

Exercise: I am yet again embarrassed to say...1.66 miles...I was lame this week. I did walk around at the air show yesterday, maybe a mile or so.

Symptoms: Starting to get lower back/hip pain. No bueno.

Movement: Wiggly wiggly wiggly! The doctor asked me to do kick counts every night and I laughed and told her that she kicks me all day, every day. She has had the hiccups a few times too, feels weird!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: Meeting with my friend Kate on Saturday to talk maternity pictures. Excited to have them done!

What I miss: walking without my lower back hurting, especially after sitting down for a while

Next appt: We have a "meet the midwives" class at kaiser on Wed night, my next usual appt is Oct 4th

28 weeks! Officially 3rd trimester!

I am officially in the 3rd trimester! Woo!

PICS: This is me at 28 weeks. Wearing a dress and some make-up...a rare occurrence!

How far along: 28 weeks!

How big is baby:
 The size of an eggplant! She's starting to develop more fat and her lungs are almost fully mature!

Total weight gain: 14lbs as of last appointment plus about 3 more based on the scale at the veterinary hospital, so about 17lbs. Will get an official number at my appt this week.

Sleep: Still pretty good. I haven't gotten too uncomfortable yet.

Maternity Clothes: Major score! A teacher friend of mine gave me 3 bags full of great stuff! I am so excited!

Best moment of the week: My uncle told me I was looking skinny other than my baby bump. Make me feel good that I am maintaining my far at least!

Exercise: I am embarrassed to say...1.5 miles. I must do better next week. 

Symptoms: A few new aches and pains in my back, but nothing too horrible. 

Movement: When does she sleep? I swear that she moves ALL day long, especially after I eat! I am afraid for how active she will be when she's born!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: My baby shower! Got my invite in the mail yesterday! It is on September 29th!

What I miss: Delicious fall beers...I want a pumpkin beer!

Next appt: Tuesday!
