Howdy all! Not too much going on over here, just have one more week of teaching after this week and then Christmas vacation (and I´ll be done until after the baby!) Other than working, I´m just getting excited, antsy, nervous, ready, etc. for the baby. Lots of nesting going on and trying to stay busy with church!
How far along: 34 weeks, 3 days
Due date: 1/16/12
Gender: BOY! I´m pretty sure we have decided to change his name to Lucas Abelardo, so he will have the same middle name as his daddy :-)
Symptoms: Very tired, have a heavy, full belly, lots of pressure on my bladder, constantly peeing, pain in my ribs/difficult breathing, moving around is not as easy as it used to be, sleeping is difficult, but besides all this, I´m feeling good!
Total weight gain: Still on track and in the normal range with my weight gain, but don´t really feel like putting an exact number on here right now...
Food cravings: Hot chocolate
Food aversions: None, really
Movement: He has definitely run out of space, his movements are not nearly as frequent/active as they used to be, but he is definitely sill moving on a daily basis
Stretch marks: Still none yet, thank goodness!
Maternity clothes: Most definitely!
Sleep: Is becoming very difficult and I feel like I am needing more and more of it as the days go by!
Belly button–in or out: It´s officially out now!
Best thing that happened this week: Seeing my adorable little guy on Tuesday at the doctors!
Any baby-related purchases this week: Bought a few outfits for him on Sunday at the local flea market
Milestones reached: Only about a month left (give or take a few days!), Luke is still in the head down position and looking perfect and healthy, so that´s great. Loving every single day with this miracle :-)
What size is the baby: He now weighs 5.3 pounds and is about 18 inches long (more or less)
What I miss: Wine, playing soccer, dancing Zumba, eating cold deli meat sandwiches, sleeping on my stomach, not going to the bathroom every 30 minutes, walking/moving/breathing/sleeping normally
What I am looking forward to: Our second baby shower this Sunday (thrown by our wonderful church!), our 2 year Anniversary on Monday <3, last day of school on Friday Dec. 16th and then Christmas vacation and all the wonderful things that come with that! Most importantly, meeting our little boy in a few weeks!!!
