32 weeks

This is my 31 week belly with Carter: I think I'm a little bigger this time around.

I had my routine 32 week appointment this morning. Everything is going along great. Nothing has really changed other than my weight! I gained 5 pounds in the past two weeks but I hadn't gained any weight at the last visit so I guess it's more like 5 pounds over 4 weeks. :) That didn't stop me from going to Sonic for a chocolate milkshake. Yuuuuummmmmy! Dr. B said her heartrate is good and that she is head down and will most likely stay head down until she's born. So I guess it's her little feet that I feel under my ribs all the time. I'm getting bigger and bigger everyday. My belly button is not really a belly button anymore. When I poke around it, it turns into an outie belly button! I can't wait to meet her! Hopefully we will have decided on a name by the time we get to Colorado...Theo promised me that anyway :) We'll see.

31 weeks

Wow, I'm in the single digits in terms of weeks left to go! I'm ready...well, not officially because I don't want the baby to come before she's due but I am ready to meet her. I'm pretty uncomfortable these days. I don't remember having this much trouble catching my breath when I was pregnant with Carter but this time, I huff and puff constantly. Our AC is not working right now which makes it doubly more uncomfortable.

My sweet friend Katie, who is also pregnant (due a few weeks after me) came over last week. She is having another boy so she brought me a lot of girl stuff that she had bought when she was pregnant with her first baby and didn't find out the baby's gender. There is some really cute stuff! She also made baby girl an adorable burp cloth. She loves to embroider things and is incredibly talented. I will miss her and her family when we move. Carter and her little boy have been playing together a lot lately and I know he will miss his little friend when we move too.

Other than that, things are going as expected. I am now going to the doctor every two weeks. My last appointment with my doctor here will be July 14th and then I'll get to meet my new Colorado doctor. At my last visit (this past Tuesday), I've only gained 13 pounds but I don't know if that's true. I feel SOOOOO much bigger than that. I'll try and post a belly picture soon. I feel like my skin is being stretched to the max and I still have two more months to go!
