*We had another dr. appointment this week and she is doing great! She is head down, her heart rate was 140 bpm and she is measuring right on! LOVE LOVE LOVE getting to hear that heart beat of hers!
*I will definitely be using a lactation consultant once I have the baby but I also started taking free email courses from Lactation Link and I’m feeling more prepared about this whole thing already!
*I definitely feel her move and kick around throughout the day but I don’t feel her doing flips anymore. Things are getting tight in there! She is around 5.25 lbs now! I either want to lie down, stand up or lean over on the counter or something… sitting down just makes me feel like everything is squished way too much inside.
*This pic is from last Friday from my run with Knox and Andrew! Knox rode his bike with us for 5 miles! My current pace is usually around 9:30-9:45!
*I have a dream about her almost every single night now which is fun and I can tell that my brain is thinking about her non-stop.
*Overall, the third trimester is my favorite so far but I also am not in those last 2-3 weeks that are probably going to be extremely uncomfortable.
*Carbs. Carbs. Carbs. It is all I want.
*The baby does feel like she is dropping a little bit! She doesn’t feel as high up in my ribs as she did before!
*Somebody’s hand is on my tummy pretty much at all times of the day to feel her move:) Knox did this for pretty much the entire time we were at church on Sunday.
*While I don’t feel nauseated at all like I used to, food aversions are still strong. Andrew has to go get a hamburger by himself if he wants one and I have a list of about 15 foods that I don’t want near me right now.
The nursery is done!! Andrew worked so incredibly hard on the nursery and I am so thankful because it is absolutely perfect in my opinion. I cannot wait to bring her home and to have a special place where I’ll be spending so much time with her!
Please note, my sister took all of the decorating genes in our family but I’m pretty darn proud of how it turned out!
After a new paint job, the crib was put together and the glider was added!
And then I changed my mind on the sheets and then we decorated! Andrew and I decided to go with a star theme for her room because star gazing together is one of our favorite things to do (and how we got engaged)!
Her little closet!
And the glider I will be spending a million hours in:) Thank you Brooke for rocking with me daily to get ready.
Here are the links to the things we bought:
Coral blanket (that is the softest thing you will ever feel)!
Wall shelves (from Ikea, I can’t find them online)
Now I need your help. I need to know what to pack in my hospital bag. What did you pack in yours? What do you wish you would have packed in yours? What was unnecessary? I need to hear it all. With Brooke, I definitely didn’t pack a bag. I got off the airplane, all of my stuff was in the POD on the way to California and I didn’t expect (neither did my doctors) her to come for a bit longer… so I didn’t have a bag packed. I think I just brought my carry on suitcase from the airplane to the hospital. It worked out great but I do want to be a little bit more prepared this time!
What should I pack in my hospital bag?! PLEASE SHARE!
