Now that it’s finally official – I’m growing another human – I’m sure you can’t wait to be inundated with all things baby (again). Should we let the nonsense and self-indulgence begin?
Main scoop: We are getting down to it…the finally stages! This is going to be a short update because there is not much new to report. My sleep is horrible; on several occasions I’ve woken up at 3.30am and couldn’t fall back asleep. I remember doing this with Amelie. I think Baby Boy wakes me initially with kicks and then anxiety sets in and my brain starts racing about everything. Or, I’m up 5-6 times to go to the bathroom. It’s exhausting and makes for a loooonng morning with Amelie.
The pose is cringe worthy but I am showered so I still consider this picture a WIN as far as bump pictures are concerned.
The Science: Baby Center recap – 36weeks. I’m a little nervous because my MIL will be out of town the week before I’m due. I know that it’s impossible to predict when this baby will arrive and she can’t be expected to sit around waiting for us. She’s got other grandbabies in her life to snuggle. We need to think of a good plan B for Amelie if I go into labor while Grandma is away.
Body morphing: I haven’t had a doctor’s appointment since the last update, so I’m unsure of my most recent weight gain. I do feel like I mostly look the same though?
Sexy stuff! Nothing juicy (pardon my word choice) to report.
Food drama: Hubs is the meal planner, grocery shopper and cook in the family. (Obviously I’m the blogger of the family, which is super important). He’s been focusing on healthier meals for all of us since we kinda of got in a rut this summer and fall. He’s been making outrageously awesome stuff – cottage cheese cucumber sandwiches on sprouted wheat bread with tomatoes, avocados and alfalfa sprouts? Yes, please!
To Dos: Good news, we have narrowed down to a few boy names! We decided on circumcision. I toured the hospital and pre-registered. I’ve started packing my hospital bag. We bought a bigger car! I cleaned out our old car. And I’m killing it on the Christmas front! I’m about 75% done with the gifts I’m in charge of which includes wrapping and packing up since I’ll be shipping most of them. Also, Christmas cards have been ordered -weeeee! I barely believe this but my track kids threw me another baby shower and surprised me with a car seat for Amelie. We are officially set if the new baby comes early!
My To Do list is now in the “would be nice to get done” category. Cleaning, organizing, finishing projects I’ve started, getting my hair cut and highlighted…
And randomly: Just for comparison sake, I thought it would be fun to include my 36 week pregnancy pic with Amelie:
