I feel so unprepared. We really have nothing ready for her. Since we are in the midst of buying a new house (YAY), there is not a whole lot we can do to prepare her nursery. If you remember, we painted her nursery & set up her crib & bedding back when I was 24ish weeks & we weren't even considering moving back then. But, a lot can change in a matter of weeks & well, now we are moving. So, everything for Claire's room has been put on pause. I'm freaking out a little considering we won't be moving in until probably the middle/end of next month. That should be interesting!
I would like to mention that after living in our house for 2 years, we JUST found out last night that there is a registered SEX OFFENDER that lives right next door to us!!! His conviction is Enticing of a Minor. Funny how we live RIGHT across the street from a High School...We had searched sex offenders in our area a while back & nothing came up, but sure enough; there's one living 5 feet away from us. That right there is reason enough to be moving before we have this baby! SO GROSS.
How far along?: 34 weeks!
How big is baby?: If I remember from my books, I think she's almost 5lbs! What a big girl!
Weight gain?: Um... I've gained 3 pounds in the last week. 3 POUNDS! I blame it on the fact that I have discovered I can have McDonald's & Chick-fil-a without my blood sugar going through thr roof. I have literally had McDonald's everyday this week for breakfast & Chick-fil-a for lunch...ya, that'll pack on the pounds.
Stretch marks?: I have discovered what appears to be a few little ones on my left love handle. They look like pink squiggly lines. Oh well. They aren't that obvious.
Maternity clothes?: I live in non-maternity dresses & loose tops
Sleep?: AWFUL. Between the achy hips, pelvis & peeing every hour, I don't sleep much.
Best moment this week?: How about the worst moment? I've had a few of those. This week was emotionally wearing. But I'm over it. Something positive that has come out of these negative events is that I know my husband has my back & supports me no matter what. I just love that.
Food cravings?: Turkey & provolone sammiches
Gender?: baby girl!
Movement?: Yes. Between her teeny feets in my ribs & having the hiccups multiple times a day, she's constantly up to something. The fact that her feet are all up in my ribs is a sure sign she's still pretty high up there. START DROPPING, BABY.
Belly button?: Just plain weird looking. It's not sure what it wants to be
What I miss?: At this point, too many things to name.
Labor signs?: Just BH contractions ALL. THE. TIME. They're getting more painful.
What I'm looking forward to?: Reaching full term
Milestone?: How about I have 42 days left?!?
See, she's still sitting high & mighty in that belly!
