32 weeks!

wow, almost there!!!

so the baby shower was fun, had a pretty good turn out and got plenty of gifts. ended up not being able to have it in the banquet room (which kinda sucked, but they had to get the floors redone and the only day the guy could do it was that day), and it would've been better i think if we could've. and the cake was late getting there, and it definitely wasn't worth the price we paid for it. :/ but oh well, everyone said they had a fun time anyway. :)

he's definitely getting bigger, i can tell you that much. :) it's awesome. and we almost have the whole room for me and blake cleared out, so then we just need to paint, put floors down, and set everything up. :) i'm so excited!!! i wanna work on it so bad. :)

so these two weeks have been pretty uneventful. just things as usual. i still think he's in the same head down, facing right position, which is very good. :) he can stay in that position, that's how i need him to be haha.

so just a little update on how everything's been going. and for the weekly belly pic:

30 weeks!

so i went to sacred heart the day before yesterday and had another ultrasound to access his growth and his heart. everything it pretty much fine. the right vessel in his heart is on the "small side of normal," so i have another u/s at 34 weeks. this one will be at the first location though, since 1) they didn't have any appointments available at the closer one and 2) they said they have a bunch of heart specialists at that one so they can have them around "just in case." real comforting, huh? but i think everything will be okay. the doctor even said that he thinks that he's fine, just better safe than sorry. and i agree.

but good news, he's head down! :) he's been like that for a few weeks (i thought he was transverse b/c of where he kicks, but that's just his legs are), so hopefully he'll stay that way until i have him. :) and he's 2 lbs 10 oz so far. woo! he's getting so big! i guess this week average babies are about 3 lbs, maybe a little over. he's sooo cute though. i can't wait to meet him. :)

i've been going to the child birth education classes, and they're actually really informative. the other day we toured labor and delivery, and it's actually really nice where i'm delivering, so i'm excited. :D i mean, i was gunna deliver there regardless, but it's nice to have great facilities. :)

andddd i broke up with ryan (baby daddy). things just weren't working out. we had a good run i guess though lol. i just feel relieved though. don't really know if he does or not. but we're still on good terms.

now we're really working on the room too. just about there. sort of. tomorrow we're working on it hard core. i have work tomorrow night, so i'll be there for part of it, but i'm gunna help out while i'm home. :) i can't wait!

we've also been working a lot on the baby shower. that's going to be june 27th, so excited about that as well. we went to pick out the cake yesterday, and believe me, it's going to be sooo cute! i'll be sure to take a lot of pictures. :)

and now, for my 30 week belly shot!

28 weeks! :D

so the 4D ultrasound was last week, loved it!!! so worth it to get the DVD of it. it's my new favorite movie. i've watched it everyday so far. :) he is just the cutest little thing. he sucks his thumb! and we saw him yawn and rub his eye, open his eye, he's just the cutest thing ever. i can't wait until he's here! getting so close. :)

updates that have happened: i've been getting more braxton hicks contractions, but luckily they don't hurt me. :) and i've been leaking a little bit of colostrum. i can only tell b/c it's making marks on my dark bra lol. hopefully nursing will be a breeze. and i've noticed that he's dropped a little bit, but not a whole lot. i'm still carrying pretty high. and i now have a mommy car lol. i finally sold my bug and am now the proud owner of a dark gray 2009 chevy equinox. woo!

i had a doctor's appointment today. blake had the hiccups when they were listening to his heartbeat so we got to hear that too. :) how cute. i'm measuring a little small, 26 weeks, but that's kinda expected since i'm so small. i'm now 122 pounds, woohoo! so that means that i've gained a total of 19 pounds so far. and no diabetes!!! all of my levels for stuff look good and she said to keep on doing what i've been doing. :) she's hoping i deliver at 38 weeks, which is the first week in august. which i'm totally fine with haha. i got to pre-register for my admittance into the hospital today too so wow. it's getting so close!!! i just want to hold him in my arms. ♥

so, without further ado, here are my favorites from the 4D ultrasound.

his little foot!


his hand is by his face. :)
