I had a total panic moment the other day. I’ll attribute it to pregnancy hormones. I realized that I’m 33 weeks pregnant (almost 34 at this point), and I stop taking my medication to prevent preterm labor at 36 weeks. Which technically means…little man could be here in a matter of three weeks. THREE WEEKS YOU GUYS. Holy freaking crap. I realized I don’t have NEARLY enough clothes (no pajamas, no socks, like 3 onesies), no bath time stuff, no baby monitor….so I totally went into panic attack mode and started making a list of things I needed to get done like YESTERDAY. Which has turned into repainting almost my entire house (not sure how that happened?). Clearly, I’m nesting.
Luckily we are having someone do the painting for us, with the exception of some small areas. The baby’s room is being painted this week (WOOO!) which means I can start getting things in order. I scored a serious sale on Carter’s and bought enough onesies and key pieces (lounge pants, socks, etc) to hold the little guy over for the summer months. And we are planning on completing our registry within the next couple weeks, so I feel a SLIGHT sense of relief.
And maybe next week I’ll actually have a chalkboard post for you all.
How far along? 33 weeks, 4 days Total weight gain: 10 pounds Maternity clothes? Just the maxi dress and tank tops. Stretch marks? Nope! Sleep: Well. Body pillow is helping, but the charlie horses I’m experiencing are NO FUN. Apparently increasing potassium doesn’t do squat either, as it’s just a normal pregnant side effect. Best moment this week: One of my dearest friends from Florida surprising me at my second baby shower this past week! I cried, she cried. It was wonderful 🙂 Miss Anything? Working out. But, baby comes first. Hopefully only a couple more weeks of bed rest! Movement: Oh yes. And lemme tell you, the bladder and cervical kicks? FUN! Food cravings: None this week. This has been pretty boring. Anything making you queasy or sick: I randomly felt nauseous and actually threw up for the first time in my entire pregnancy the other day. I’m thinking it was because I went up the stairs quicker than I should’ve and stomach juices started flowing because right after I felt completely normal again and was eating just fine. Gender: BOY! Labor Signs: No. This needs to stay that way until 37 weeks. Then, I’m fine with him coming. 🙂 Symptoms: Short of breath at some points. Charlie horses. Belly Button in or out? Out for the most part. Wedding rings on or off? On. Happy or Moody most of the time: This week moody. See above as to why. Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery! And everything else in the house we’ve started. My husband deserves an award. 😉
And last, it’s Nurse’s Week! So go do something nice for nurse…we deserve it! Happy Nurses Week to all my nurse friends! 😉
