Baby W Update – 33 Weeks

We are now just 7 weeks out from meeting our son! That’s a relatively terrifying but exciting thought. Pretty soon, Andy will be heading out for the 3 different summer camps he’s leading at this year. We’ll have a little time in between the 2nd and 3rd but I’ll be on my own for a bit. I never mind that, though, because it means Andy’s is doing what he loves to do.

Today we had another doctor’s appointment. Dr. K said everything is still looking good…no swelling or high blood pressure or anything. Still measuring about right for my due date. I did, however, lose a couple pounds which is strange. Last time I had gained the “perfect” 2 week amount. But this time not so much. In that time I even had my birthday (giant chocolate cake picture to follow), our cooking classes at the store (LOTS OF FOOD), and plenty of other excuses to eat cake, homemade ice cream, etc. In other words, I wasn’t skimping on food. So I’ve been told to “eat a little more”. I think I’ll eat a little more of the healthy stuff though…….instead of cake :).

We’re slowly but surely getting our house ready for our little guy and an increase in out of town house guests. I’ve been wanting to get some of this stuff done for a while so I’m glad for the excuse! Hopefully in the next couple weeks I’ll have some nursery pictures to post. For now, here are some other pictures:

This is me on Memorial Day (technically 32.5 weeks):

Here is my Great Wall of Chocolate from PF Changs, also known as birthday diet food:

And here’s one of my favorite pictures of Andy since the only recent one I have of him on my phone is too goofy to post:

Ok, Andy came home and said I could post this picture haha. We had fun going through all the stuff our friends Tom & Kristy sent us!:

Baby Boy W Update: 24 weeks 5 days

Just getting in a quick update before heading to girl’s night dinner (yay!). We’re now over halfway to the arrival of our little boy! I had to remind Andy today that it’s forty weeks total so really we have a little under 16 left. Seems like a lot and a little at the same time.

We had an appointment today. Just a quick one, nothing fancy thankfully. Next time I get to do the glucose test (ew) and they want to do another sonogram. This scared me REALLY BAD. Although you wouldn’t have known it, I was pretty chill. Our doctor assured me multiple times that nothing was wrong and nothing looked bad. The lady who did the sonogram the first time saw what she thought was a decent picture of the heart but the doctor who saw it wants a clearer picture. During the first sonogram, we saw all four chambers of the heart, all the inflow and outflow stuff (hey, I’m not a cardiologist) and when our doctor looked at it that day he gave us a great report. But I do remember she had a hard time getting a GOOD clear picture of it. So unfortunately, we get to do that again. Prayers that I don’t stress would be appreciated. I do feel confident that our doctor is being honest and would be open and up front if he thought there was a chance of something bad.

Besides all that, my blood pressure, weight, etc etc all looks great. I’m measuring normally. I also got a great 45 minute cardio workout in this morning and I can still touch my toes :). Andy and I have bets on when that will become impossible.

After our appointment we went out and got Noodles & Co. I’ve been wanting Mac & Cheese for ages so I was mega stoked to go there!

Truffle Mac from Noodles & Co, SO GOOD:

New picture after my workout today, front and side (just a couple days short of 25 weeks):

Here I am right now :):

Thanks to everyone for following along!
