This was a very productive week for Brett and I. You could say that the nesting phase has begun. It was also a great distraction from the ever growing uncomfortableness that comes with the 3rd trimester.
So what did we do that was so productive you might ask…
First, we finished buying the really important things off our registry like the car seat, bottles, breast pump, etc. I was getting nervous that we were not really prepared, but am feeling great now. The car seat should be here in the next couple days so we’ll be ready to bring her home from the hospital should she decide to come early.
Second, we registered for the cloth diaper service and bought some super cute diaper covers. I can’t wait to try this out and tell you all about it. My mom had me in cloth diapers with a service and I think it’s great that something like this is available for our little one too.
Finally, we cleaned out our “attic”/storage space and sold a few items on Craigslist. Since both of our parents have sold our childhood homes recently we have been gifted some of our items from storage and needed to make some room for those things too along with all of the things a new baby brings into your life.
If you can’t read the board, here are the stats:
Age: 35 weeks
Height: ~18.0 in.
Weight: ~5.25 lb.
Notes: At 35 weeks there are only 35 days left until my due date (picture of a clock)
How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain? 36.5 pounds
Maternity clothes? Of course! There’s no turning back now.
Sleep? Hit or miss. I am starting to get energy back at night and have a hard time falling asleep. Then I am super tired the next day because I was up a couple times in the night. Unfortunately, it does not make falling asleep any easier. Oh well. Not like sleep is something I expect much of in the near future.
Miss anything? Still missing the feeling in my hands, but I’m adjusting. Thank goodness, it does not affect my typing.
Movement? All the time.
Cravings? Not really. The coconut water and pineapple popsicles I’ve been eating this week are delicious. I might have to see about having those during labor.
Labor signs? Nothing yet. We’ll see what our doctor’s appointment is like this week.
Wedding ring on or off? Off
Looking forward to: I am actually looking forward to the doctor’s for the first time in my life. Just want to meet her and these appointments mean that we are getting closer to that date. Yippee!!!
