38 Weeks!

Alright party people!!  38 weeks!! Holy smokes, time is going by really slow at this point and I am feeling really miserable.  This is probably going to be my last post with Liam in my belly so wish me luck!!

WHOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!! 

How far along:  38 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Tooooo much!

Exercise: At this point….only prenatal yoga.  Don’t want to do much anymore.

Maternity clothes:  yep, that’s it.  Leggings are really comfortable for me.

Sleep:  Not good at all!  I am up between 3am-5am just waiting for the sun to come up.  Sometimes I fall back to sleep for a couple more hours, but it’s not comfortable.  I also get up about 3-5 times to pee.  This big baby is pushing on my bladder and it is not fun.  When I can’t fall back to sleep I watch the news and drink a cup of coffee.  Later, during the day , I take a 2 hour nap.

Best moment this week:  Our maternity photoshoot with an amazing photographer (pics coming soon!) The nursery is finally done and all of Liam’s clothes are washed!!!  Tim’s mom also surprised me with another baby shower with her close friends.  Visits to my chiropractor are always the best.

Tim’s best moment this week:  “Finally finished shooting Hell’s Kitchen.  Now I have some time off to help Corina with baby stuff- choosing a pediatrician, building furniture for the nursery, and  watching football!”  😉

Miss Anything:  My energy!  Can’t do much anymore.  and putting on my shoes without having to sit down.

Movement: Everyday!  I think he is really anxious to come out already.

Food cravings: Cold watermelon, burger and fries, chocolate, grapes, and peaches.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  This month has been MISERABLE!

Have you started to show yet:  HUGE!

Belly Button in or out? In 

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Annoyed- can’t breathe, can’t fit into any of my clothes, and swollen. 

Looking forward to: The Big Day!  Looks like Liam is coming sooner than later. At my last visit to the doc Liam was measuring 38 weeks when I was only 36 weeks.

Difficulties:  My hands/fingers hurt in the morning, Sleeping, breathing, walking for long periods of time, swollen feet-legs-arms-face.

Fact:  I am due at any moment so this may be my last post with Liam in my belly!

34 Weeks!

The size of a cantalope…just like mommy’s ankles!!!

How far along:  34 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: A whopping 33 lbs! That’s almost 35, which WAS my limit. :/

Exercise: Prenatal yoga when I am not working or right before work, which is around 6am.  I can’t sleep so might as well do something active.  I also take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Maternity clothes: Ok, #1…  Why are my MATERNITY jeans not fitting me anymore????!!!  WTF?!  They are tight and uncomfortable.  The stretchy maternity yoga pants are great though.  Those are the ones I look forward to putting on when I get home from work.  Target and Motherhood maternity clothes are more affordable.

Sleep:  Nooooope!  I am lucky if I go through a night without having to wake up 2-3 times to pee or to eat Tim’s Lucky Charm cereal at 3:30am.  :/  Sorry honey, Liam reeealllyy wanted those Lucky Charm’s!  My healthy Total cereal does not compare to the tasty marshmallows in the Charm box.  🙂

It is also difficult to turn in bed.  The body pillow has helped a bunch.  Liam also likes to do cartwheels and jumping jacks around 6:30am.  So I basically forgot what sleeping in was like.  And I know once Liam is born,  it’s not getting any better! Yay! :/

Best moment this week:  A prenatal massage and a visit to my chiropractor.  Holy crap prenatal massages feel A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!  I highly recommend them.  I get them twice a month and feel golden after each session.  Believe me,  I fell asleep on the table.  That’s how good it was.

Tim’s best moment this week:  “Getting through another work week and getting booked for another show after Liam’s arrival.  Keeping busy people!”

Miss Anything:  My normal walk for crying out loud!  When they say you are waddling like a duck, that means you are waddling like a damn duck.  I can’t help it.

Movement: This baby does not fit anymore!  He moves everyday and punches/kicks me several times in a row.  I can finally see my stomach move up and down.  It’s cute and weird all at the same time.

Food cravings: I now eat 2 watermelons a week!!  I LOVE cold watermelon.  Lucky Charm cereal, fruit juice, Menchies yogurt, and turkey avocado wraps.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Yeah, traffic on the 405 and slow drivers.   Also the extreme heat in the valley.

Have you started to show yet:  Pffff!  Please!  

Belly Button in or out? Still in. 

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Tired and out of breath.

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery done!  Painting is still in progress and furniture still needs to be ordered!  I also can’t wait for my maternity leave.  Lot’s to look forward to.

Difficulties:  Sleep, swollen feet-face-& arms, breathing, walking like a human being, keeping my hands off the pastries, and getting into Tim’s lifted 4×4 truck.  I’m going to need a step stool pretty soon.

Liam’s 3rd Ultrasound

This is it!  I finally graduated from Dr. Dohany’s  office (Liam’s doctor).  Liam is headed the right direction and let’s hope he stays that way!!  My visits will now be every 3 weeks with my OB, Dr. Kahen.  The days are flying by and I am NOW getting extremely nervous, impatient, and nervous. Did I mention nervous?  More like scared!  Haha! 1 more month of peeing every 30 minutes, waddling like a duck, and feeling like a stuffed turkey.  Oh the beauty of pregnancy.

Here is our 5 1/2 pound peanut!  Dr. Dohany tried to get a clear shot of his face, but as you can tell his foot was in the way and there was no chance of him moving it.
