Someone emailed me yesterday asking if I’d posted any recent pregnancy pictures of me. . .um. . .it might help if I’d actually remembered to have Stephen take them!
That said, he took a couple last Sunday. I didn’t think I looked that big, until I saw the pictures. Ahem. I guess I’m bigger than I thought. On the other hand, this weekend I’ll be 32 weeks. I guess that’s not too bad. Just about all of my weight gain has been out front too, so I shouldn’t be complaining in the first place.
This pregnancy has been pretty trouble-free, and for that, I am SO thankful. I’ve had some problems with my back and hip, but they’re more old injury-related, and the extra pregnancy weight is just aggravating a condition that was already there (car accident I was in 8 years ago). My OB recommended an absolutely excellent chiropractor, and those visits have been very helpful.
We’ve also gone to OB visits every two weeks – I still can’t believe we’re this far already! We’re also signed up to take labor classes in January since we missed the November set of classes. Oh well, right?
We went to Stephen’s folks’ house the other day and got our carseat and bassinet out of their storage shed where they’ve been keeping them for us. Even though we still have several weeks (Lord willing!), it still feels better just to have those things ready. I stripped the carseat yesterday and the fabric is in the dryer right now.
I’ve also been doing a bunch of research and antagonizing over which types of cloth diapers to use this time. I think I finally decided on one – it’s called Rita’s Rump Pocket one-size fitted pocket diaper. The fact that they’re one size fits most really appealed to me – I want the convenience of a fitted diaper, but didn’t want to have to make a couple dozen fitteds in each size. I also have a couple of the Mama Bird pocket all in ones cut out and ready to sew – I just haven’t gotten around to sewing them yet. With Christmas coming so quickly, I wanted to get gifts done first. Now that those are mostly done, I can get working on the diapers more.
So there you have it – everything you wanted to know (and more, lol!) about me and this pregnancy. . .for now. . .lol!
