Thirty.one.weeks. Seriously, this pregnancy is soaring by. Christmas is in less than 3 weeks and I just cannot believe how fast this has gone. I only have 5 OB appointments left before my c-section and just 8 weeks until the big day. CRAZY!
I had to throw this together: all 3 kiddos (Patrick up top, then Rosie, then #3) all around 30ish weeks. You know I'm a sucker for comparison snaps so I just had to do this one too. And I think they all look completely different so I cannot make any educated guesses about anything with #3 other than it appears he/she has a nicely shaped head.
Patrick is SO EXCITED about his new sibling -- and teeters back and forth whether it's a little brother or sister. Lately he favors little brother, but will say sister now and again soon. I think it's safe to say he has no clue either.
As for how I'm feeling this week, that stupid nausea has been back AGAIN. On Sunday I felt very pukey for a good part of the afternoon. Lots of water seemed to help but ugh, gave me flashbacks to those early weeks of this pregnancy. Don't get me wrong, it's not NEARLY as bad as it was, but yeah, not a fan of it returning at any point. Other than that, I've really been trying to take it easy and sit and put my feet up when I can (fortunately, knock on wood, I'm not a sweller, so my ankles, hands/fingers, etc... don't really ever swell up which is nice and mean my rings fit still!) and that seems to be helping. I've had less (upper) back pain this week which is nice. But I do feel like this kid is sitting up high because I get so winded walking up and down steps or heck walking for an extended period of time. Mama gets tiredddddd. And I've definitely felt more fatigue and exhaustion this week than before (and I know that'll just get worse until delivery day...yee haw.) but overall I can't complain too much (minus having to pee all the time!). Gosh I just seem like a complainer, don't I?!
That's really about all I've got for 31 weeks with this kiddo! I have another OB appointment next week (after my 32 week post comes out, lucky you getting to wait until my 33 week one for a report on that) and I just can't believe truly how fast this pregnancy (and heck, YEAR!) has flown by and that we're in the home stretch. EEKKKK! This kid will be here before I know it! Anyways, have a good one friends!
