I forgot...

I forgot last week to make this post, so here it is:

What I know now at 32 weeks:
  1. I'm 7 months pregnant! It is still so surreal sometimes.
  2. "Only 8 weeks left!" is starting to hit me. Just kind of though. People ask if I'm scared of labor and I haven't really thought about it yet. Maybe I should??
  3. Ben will paint my toenails for me. How cute is he?
  4. I feel very blessed. This has been a smooth-sailing pregnancy so far, and the baby is healthy.
  5. She gets the hiccups 3-4 times daily. And they are BIG hiccups. When I had Jon (my brother-in-law) feel them for the first time, he jumped and said, "NO way! That's YOU not the baby!" Nope, that's all baby:)
  6. According to my "What to Expect" app, she weighs almost 4.5 pounds and is about 20 inches long.
  7. It's now June and I can say "I give birth next month" .... NEXT MONTH!!!!
  8. I really want her to be born on her due date July 21st and here's why (I'm sure this was concocted whilst trying to sleep) - I was born on the 7th and Ben on the 3rd: 7 x 3 = 21. I was born in the 5th month and Ben in the 2nd: 5 + 2 = 7 (7th month = July). Also, everyone in my family (except Anna) was born on a multiple of 7 (7th, 14th, 28th) So July 21st is SO COOL!
  9. I guess I really wouldn't mind if she decided to come just 2 weeks early though. Maybe she could come on the 14th and it'd still be pretty cool.
  10. Heartburn isn't too bad, I'm not really too uncomfortable, no major back pain, eating habits are pretty normal, not that tired, and no stretch marks on my belly. I count myself lucky.
  11. My wedding ring doesn't fit anymore :( My toes swell a little bit too (not ankles yet luckily).
  12. I wear crocks or my feet die. I had bright pink ones, but went out and got black ones and white ones so I can wear them everyday.
  13. I've gained 30 pounds. 6 weeks left = hopefully only 6 more pounds. We'll see.
  14. I've been needing to pop my lower back for months now. Really wish I could twist the way I need to to do it. Really looking forward to popping it.
  15. I have been getting mild contractions for about the last 3 weeks. I get one every 2 hours or so. Everything goes hard, tight, and I need to pee until it goes away in about 30 seconds.
  16. I can't wait for my 3-10pm job to be done NEXT WEEK! Then I'll have plenty of time to get ready for baby.
  17. I only have 2 more of these posts and she's here!

I agree, anyone born on July 21st is way awesome... Just look at me!? LOL it's gonna fly! Just pray you don't have back labor, that's what killed me! Let me know if you need anything since we live so close to each other! I'm here for ya :D

holy cow!! i can't believe how close you are to being done. yeah!! don't be scared for's really neat...i was more scared for recovery. :-)

Steph and Brady said...

Oh you are so close! It is going to come so quick! Personally I would say that you don't need to worry about labor. You will totally be fine and where everything has been pretty smooth so far and you both are healthy, I am sure it will go great. It seems like there are always little things that happen to everyone. You will do great.

Holy smokes, you really are a math nerd for figuring out all that stuff for when you want her to be born! :) I love it. I love all the updates on the pregnancy and you are the cutest little prego lady ever!

I love reading these! This is such a fun way to journal your pregnancy. You look so good too! You wear pregnancy well :) Good luck with everything. Labor isn't bad at all. I really enjoyed it! Can't wait to see pics!
