Yucky feeling...

I'm almost 34 weeks! 3 more weeks and I'm considered full-term. Come one 3 weeks!!!! I am so done being pregnant! Since we'll have a c-section when I'm 39 weeks, I only have 5 more weeks to go... Why does that sound so soon but feels so far away???

This morning, I woke up feeling totally nauseous and yucky. It's like as if 1st trimester is hitting me now in my 3rd trimester. I've been so lucky to not have morning sickness with this pregnancy. May be I'm going to have it now that I'm almost done?! It's probably all the pregnancy hormones going through my body or that 2nd bowl of spaghetti that I ate last night which I knew I shouldn't.

My stomach is crowded now with the growing baby that I can't eat as much as I used to. I run out of breath super fast too! Just few more weeks......

I've been too lazy to take a belly photo so here's a photo we took of me helping Avery open her gifts at Christmas. You can kind of see how big my belly is.... It actually sits on my lap when I sit down!

A baby without a name....

I am almost 32 weeks pregnant. By now, our baby weighs approximately 3.75 pounds (large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in my uterus. Unfortunately Paul and I have yet to name our little girl. We have zero ideas!!! To be fair to myself, I have thrown out a few ideas but Paul has shot them down left and right.... I say come up with some of your own ideas then, Paul!!!!

I realized this morning that I miscalculated my maternity leave. BOO HOO.... It doesn't start on the 11th but actually on the 14th.... Oh, you don't know how sad I was when I realized my working days have been extended 3 more days! It feels like 3 more weeks!! Luckily I have the holidays to make this time seem to go by faster.

Super Trooper...

I'm getting close! It's now over 30 weeks. When I sit at my desk at the office, my tummy is pressed against the desk as I type. My hip and groin joints hurt quite a bit now and uncomfortable to walk long distance. Baby #2 and I saw Dr. Bohn last week for my 30 week checkup and I gained 3 more pounds for a total of 18 pounds. Right on target! 1 pound a week will put me somewhere around 28 pounds weight gain which will be exactly the same as the first pregnancy.

I was a super trooper this weekend. Avery spent Saturday - Monday at grandparents' house so Paul and I had an adult-only weekend. Although we missed Avery like crazy, we had a fun-filled, busy 2-day weekend. Saturday night was our friend Mark's Christmas party which was a lot of fun. Surprisingly, I lasted until past midnight! Paul and I spent our Sunday Christmas shopping for over 4 hours (wow, I walked for 4 hours) then we went to dinner with the Hongs. I was very proud of myself for getting my butt off of the couch to do all these things. And today, I'm back at work.......

Starting to feel uncomfortable...

Only 10 more weeks to go! Wow, time flew with this pregnancy. Only 27 more days of work left! My brain is now filled with countdowns. Countdown till #2 comes, countdown till maternity leave, countdown till Avery turns 2... Lots of things happening in our lives!

I'm already 30 weeks but I'm not sure if my tummy has gotten any bigger since my 28 week picture. I have to take another one soon... With this pregnancy, my belly is definitely pointier and it's all in the front. With Avery, my belly was rounder and more evenly spread between my sides and front. This baby is definitely more active in my tummy too which makes falling asleep a bit of a challenge. Today, I'm feeling a very uncomfortable pressure on my pelvic bones and groin. I feel like the baby is going to just drop out! May be because I'm sitting all day at the office?? Walking is a bit painful these days with the joints loosening and everything...

I shouldn't complain. This still has been a much easier pregnancy than the first time!
