Quick update on the past few weeks...
2 top right photos: Kipling recovering also. He fell into the pool at A's parent's house and sank like a rock. It was quite traumatic for him and he's spent the past few days sleeping off his PTSD. I need to get him a life jacket. The other photo is of my nephew Tyler who is now moved back from North Carolina and it is awesome! We had a finger painting session the other day and he created some masterpieces that Michelangelo would be proud of.
2 bottom left photos: Diane Lungo, my neighbor in Orem and adoptive auntie, is Italian and makes the best spaghetti dinners so we invited ourselves over one night and ate like kings. We are still in a food coma from that one.
2 bottom right photos: my craving from last week, french crullers, and K hanging out with his best bud Jaxx, Aaron's dog.
Now that we are caught up...
In a few hours A and I are going fishing on the Green. The last time I went fishing I was about 10 years old and had a pink Barbie fishing pole. Well, besides last year when I caught this sucker...
oh yeah, just a sailfish. no biggie.
(but I tend not to count that one as much because I had a lot of help)
Any who, we're going fishin' and it'll be awesome. A taught me how to cast with his new fly rod, I'm terrible but he's too nice to say so. He really needs this little trip since he's probably not going to Alaska this year with his dad and brothers, just bc we're going to have a baby and all.
Speaking of baby, she is getting large. I didn't know my body could stretch like this!
top: 33 weeks and 3 days as of today!
bottom: the only photos I got of the baby shower Whitney and her sweet sister and mother hosted for me last week.
It was fabulous and so much fun, trust me.
You might want to overt your gaze if you have issues with pregnant bellies. I normally won't post it because I generally have issues with pregnant ladies just throwing their large bellies out into the world wide web bc, let's be honest for a moment, most maternity photos are not attractive. (If you don't believe me just go here, and another disclaimer there are a pair of ta-tas that make an appearance towards the bottom of the page on that link. Just stop scrolling when you see the woman with the black shirt and gun, what did I tell you? weird.) But this is not a "maternity photo", this is just our first family photo with the babe and I thought it was cute. If you disagree I totally understand, at least I warned you.
next thing you know I'm going to be posting photos of me breastfeeding.
Just joking, I promise never to do that to you.
How far along? 33 weeks, day 3Total weight gain: last doc appointment I had gained 17 lbs or something so probably up to 19 or so by now
Maternity clothes? yes and Andrew's basketball shorts
Stretch marks? not on my belly, yet
Sleep: between A's allergies and my heartburn? ha! help me Rhonda
Best moment this week: temple day with my sweetie, pool party, bbq and fireworks for the 4th of July, baby shower, spaghetti dinner at Diane's
Miss Anything? being cold
Movement: she had hiccups last week and it was so cute! some good kicks now and then, it's getting to be a tight squeeze for her in there.
Food cravings: this week: bananas and nutella, anything is fair game at this point
Anything making you queasy or sick: I did get really bad vertigo once this week, it was kind of scary but A was there and took care of me.
Gender: Girl, I made the doctor check again just to make sure we won't be surprised.
Labor Signs: None that I can tell yet
Symptoms: fatigue and heartburn still, will the madness ever end?!
Belly Button in or out? it's poking out a little bit more but still mostly flat
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy, but I'm so tired I can tell that's taking a toll on my emotions. This week at breakfast A and I were talking and I eventually muttered through my tears, "I'm just so tired."
Looking forward to: fishin' and floating in the river, doctor's appointment next week, sleeping tonight
