I have multiple things to blog about such as all the wonderful showers sweet friends have thrown me and Ashley and JPs wedding weekend (which was beautiful in every way) but for now I will post a quick update on where we are at in preggo land 🙂
I realized that I am terrible at remembering to update the blog weekly on the progress of Libby-oops!-Today we are at 35 weeks exactly. I am currently waiting for my appointment today but I think it could be a while as the nurse just said my doctor went into surgery about 5 minutes ago…and it could be another 20 minutes to an hour- thankful my awesome husband bought me this trusty iPad to keep me occupied for the time being! Anyways- here at the stats
Gender: we all know this one by now but it is indeed STILL a girl- at our last sono I asked them to double check 🙂
Size: 2 weeks ago she was estimated to be at 4.5 pounds- today the app says the size of a honeydew melon! Which is about 5.25 pounds and around 18 inches long
Movement: I’m pretty sure she is practicing her karate kicks and learning dance moves (hopefully those dance moves will not be taken after me!) I did not realize my stomach would become so deformed from the outside when she is moving around- pretty crazy. I also look like a crazy person in public when it takes me off guard and I am jumping or gasping in the middle of the grocery store
not really sure right now and I’m ok with that 18pounds
Maternity Clothes: first off the really cute stuff is way too expensive and it’s just starting to get a bit annoying! So now that it’s summer I have started wearing cotton dresses almost daily and getting normal dresses that may or may not be a few sizes bigger than my normal size 🙂 way cheaper that way!
Sleep: until the past week I’ve been sleeping GREAT but almost like clock work now I am waking up once or twice to go to the bathroom or because my back is hurting from whatever position I’ve been laying in. Good thing it’s summertime and I can nap in the afternoons!
This weekend will be my last shower before Libby’s arrival and I can’t wait! We have been so blessed by everyone’s generosity and encouragement during this exciting time in our lives.
Until next time… Happy Monday and praying I’m not here for forever and a day 🙂
