34 Weeks Pregnant - 127.2 pounds


Well, I have been mostly posting pictures so I figured I should probably give an update in words on how I am doing. Let me tell you...I am really uncomfortable!! Every time I stand up there is so much pressure downwards that I can barely walk. My ribs are still killing me from being pummeled by little feet. I only have 2 more weeks of part time work then I can finally relax. I finally got a body pillow and I think it has been a great purchase so far. I can actually lie on my back with part of me on the pillow so the pressure is not so bad on my tailbone that it goes numb. I still wake up a few times a night, mostly to go to the bathroom and not so much because I am hurting. It feels like my stomach is being stretched to its limits right now. I can't believe I still have another 6.5 weeks to grow. I have a feeling that stretch marks will be appearing soon.

32 Weeks Pregnant - 123.6 pounds


The last couple videos I posted showed a few little kicks but when you watch this you will see that she is doing more then just kicking. This is pretty much what she does all day and all night with few breaks in between. I am pretty sure that if you could see my ribs from the inside they would be quite bruised from all the jabs!

My pregnancy classes are:
Not starting until mid September

In the classes, I've learned how to:
do nothing yet

What I've bought for you so far:
is a bed, tote bag, and some pacifiers

What other people have bought for you:
Grandma sent some clothes for you.

The strangest food craving I've had during this pregnancy is:
not really any weird ones.

The strangest piece of advice I've gotten since this pregnancy started is:
I've gotten a lot of good advice but nothing really strange.

At my prenatal visit, I learned:
That I am low on iron which can cause anemia. So I am taking iron pills to fix that.

My hopes:
Are that you are born healthy and on time.

My fears:
Birth is going to hurt like crazy!!

Well I can't believe I am already 31 weeks. I read that by week 34 the baby could be born healthy with no help from the ICU. Scary! I can't believe it is only 9 more weeks till my due date!! I was told today that my iron level is still low. I started taking iron pills along with my prenatal vitamins so hopefully that will improve. The doctor said that after taking the iron for a few weeks I should see a noticeable change in my energy level since a lack of iron makes you feel extra worn down, tired, light headed, and fainty. I just assumed I felt that way because I haven't been sleeping that great at night. So maybe in the next week or two I could be feeling a lot better...fingers crossed!!

Next week I start working part time. My schedule will be to work Mon, Wed & Fri. We'll see how that works.

That is about it.

31 Weeks Pregnant - 123.6 pounds
My waist has grown 9 inches since I got pregnant. Crazy!


Things have been going well with the pregnancy. I am working 4 days next week then the week after I go to 3 days a week until either I can't do it anymore or mid September (whichever comes first). So then maybe I won't be so exhausted by the time I get home. As you can all see my belly is getting quite large and sometimes it feels like the baby is trying to bust out of by belly button. Only 9 1/2 weeks to go and I can't believe it is going by so fast. What I am afraid of is how pregnant woman look like they can't get any bigger then at the end the grow more. That is how I feel right now. I feel like my skin is about to burst but somehow I will still be getting bigger. Scary!! I have had a few balance problems. Just that I lose it a little sometimes. But I have never fallen down so that is a plus.

That is about it for now. Gotta head to work.
