I'm 33 weeks pregnant today! Holy Cow. Time is flying by. Just wanted to give you an update on how its been for me the last few weeks!
The beginning of the third trimester was a little rough. I thought my morning sickness was coming back (because I was really nauseous for a few days and I started to get sensitive to food smells again), and I wasn't sleeping at all! Luckily, those symptoms didn't last too long (although I still get up multiple times a night to use the restroom and get leg aches and charlie horses). I have, however, been suffering from a lot of lower back pain. It doesn't help that I am on my feet all day while at work. But my maternity support band FINALLY came in the mail yesterday... so I am going to wear that to work today and hope it helps me to be more comfortable.
The weather has made me extra uncomfortable too! Its been BEAUTIFUL out...but some days just get WAY too hot for me. I'm no longer comfortable if the weather gets above 75 degrees! Last week we had a few cooler days with a little rain and I loved every second of it. It made me look forward to the Fall. Fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, the sun, the changing leaves... etc. And September means BABY TIME this year! I cant wait to meet the little guy!
Riker moves a TON! It can actually get pretty uncomfortable. I wasn't expecting to be so uncomfortable from his movements until a little later on in the pregnancy. But an active baby is a good thing, so even though it sometimes causes me a lot of discomfort, I'll take it!
We have been working on the nursery. My husband has been doing all of the painting (what a sweet guy!). We just have to paint the stripes on one wall and we will be done with painting and can start putting Riker's room together. I will be sure to post pics, or a video of a room tour!
I also had 3 baby showers in the last two weeks! You heard that right, THREE baby showers! Work had a baby shower for the 5 pregnant ladies at work. (Yes, there are 5 of us due around the same time at my salon! And two more at the beginning of the year. That makes 7 pregnant people! CRAZY huh?! Its soooo awesome to be pregnant with some of your best friends! And for 3 of us, its our first baby! Its so fun to go through these experiences together!). Then, because I have such a large family, and so many friends, I had to have two showers to accommodate all those people! My sister hosted both of the baby showers - all the friends at my house one weekend, then all of the family at her house the next weekend. I will do a separate blog post on the baby showers soon.
Lets see... what else is going on...? Well, not too much other than realizing I should pack a hospital bag soon. And put the car seat in one of our cars.
What else do you want to know?! Comment below with your questions!
Hope you all have been having a wonderful summer!
Until next time....
