Had my last ultrasound today and everything was perfect. She weighs 4.2 pounds, she's in the 30th percentile for her weight. I'm measuring at 33 weeks, my blood pressure was a low 100/60 and no protein in my urine and probably the best part of the appointment besides seeing her again, I only gained 2.6 pounds since the last appointment. A total of 34 pounds exactly since we found out we were pregnant. I'm hoping to not go past 45 pounds, I would have liked for less but everything else has been going perfectly that weight gain really isn't important. My husband and I watched Trans.formers after the appointment and the movie was pretty good, however, theatre seats, not so comfortable when you're 32 weeks pregnant. Needless to say, after two and a half hours of sitting in those seats, I was ready to get out of there. We have another appointment in two weeks.

32 weeks down, only 8 more to go. I feel like I am stretched to the max. Just when I think I couldn't get any bigger, I do. Pregnancy's a pretty amazing process. Unbelievable things happen to your body. Not much to post today. Have an ultrasound on Thursday that I'm really looking forward to. Haven't had one since 22 weeks I believe. It will be neat to see how much she's grown since then. Hopefully things are right on track. I only have six weeks left of work and that's hard to believe. The company I work for pays for two weeks before your due date so I am definitely going to take them up on that. Right now I can say that I wouldn't mind working up until I have her but ask me that in six weeks and I'm sure I'll change my tune and be more than ready to take off of work. Hope everyone had a great Father's day with their dads and husbands!

I'm 31 weeks today and in a bit better spirits than the last time I posted. Had a rather uneventful weekend, even though my husband and I should be getting things finished for this little one's big debut. But we all know, after working all week long, who wants to spend the weekends working at home? We are such huge procrastinators when it comes to getting things around the house done, hence why we're still working on our remodel a year later. I know we still have nine weeks left until I'm due, but I feel like we have so much yet to get done. I would like to get our hospital bags packed, the diaper bag packed, scrub my house from head to toe, and completely finish the nursery, just to name a few. I would like these things done in the next few weeks to allot for any "unforeseen" occurrences, such as early labor or bed rest. I'm sure these things probably won't happen but you never know and I like to be prepared. So, we'll see if we can kick our butts into gear in the next few weeks and get my list of to-do's finished. On the pregnancy front, I'm still so very swollen but feeling fine other than that. I'm feeling her kicks and punches much more prominent now and for as much as she moves around in there, I swear she's going to be a gymnast. I'm loving it. Every time I feel her move, it gives me reassurance that she's doing ok in there.

I am so incredibly grouchy today. These hormones are in full force today, let me tell you. I don't know what my problem is. I bit my poor husband's face off earlier for no apparent reason. Well, I guess I was gonna be this way some time during my pregnancy, haven't really been yet, but today's a good a day as any. Had my 30 week appointment on Tuesday and everything's still looking good. I only gained four pounds in two weeks instead of six like I did last time. Still more than I would have liked, but whatever. I'm swollen bigger than a balloon at the Macy's Day Parade but my blood pressure is fine so no worries there. I'm hoping I lose twenty pounds alone in just water weight. Hey, a girl can dream can't she? Our last look at this little chica will be in two weeks for a 32 week ultrasound. After that, we'll just have to wait until she comes out, the doctor doesn't plan on doing anymore. I guess after this ultrasound I will have had seven total which is way more than most women get so I shouldn't complain. Well, ladies, I hope tomorrow is a better day. Have a great weekend!
