A year ago today, after 3 failed IUIs, 2 failed IVFs, & a laparoscopy, I had a status update saying something to the effect of we believed, by the next year, we would become parents one way or another. It was a very sobering read as we took our hospital tour today. It’s still so mind-blowing to both of us that we are here &, again, reminds us of how much we have to be thankful for.
It also served as a reminder to me to do a pregnancy update since I haven’t done one in over a month 😛
How far along? 32 weeks, today exactly
Weight Gain? Around 17 pounds
Maternity Clothes? All of them! My absolute favorite brand is, hands down, Jessica Simpson!
Stretch Marks? On my sides & my girls
Belly button in or out? Still in…miraculously enough 😀
Sleep: Getting more difficult.
Best moment this week: Our hospital tour today
Symptoms: Heartburn, back & hip pain
Miss Anything? Again, I still miss sushi & wine. But, again, I’d happily give that & anything else up for life if it meant I got to have this.
Movement: Reduced a little, which is normal at this stage as baby is running out of room
Cravings? Remains the same as far as sushi, rum, & sweets go but, recently, hot dogs also got added to the mix
Food aversions? Still chicken!!
Queasy or sick? Sometimes
Looking forward to? Finishing up the nursery & breastfeeding class this week
Anything new? Breastfeeding class this week & we recently (last week) met with our doulas to discuss our birth plan-which I also need to blog about (oops).
Complications / Medications? Still taking Lovenox injections, baby Aspirin, & Methylfolate daily. Complications: None
Nursery Update: After FINALLY choosing bedding/curtains (I ended up designing my own on Carousel Designs), we have decor ready to go. We’re hoping to hang the curtains & put the final touches on everything this week!
