Biweekly Update: 36 Weeks

Holy moly…four weeks until due date! I’ve been trying to finalize all last minute prep items as much as possible (getting remaining baby items, freezer meals, postpartum prep) and trying not to freak out too much about how soon baby will be here. I think we are just about done prepping freezer meals which hopefully will be a huge lifesaver …

Biweekly Update: 32 Weeks

It’s getting real folks…baby will be here before we know it! I’ve started gathering all the supplies I need for my home birth (per my midwife’s instructions) and have a refresher birthing class coming up in a few weeks. Yikes! How far along: 32 weeks Size of baby: Honeydew melon Gender: Still leaning girl. Movement: Pretty uncomfortable at this point …

Biweekly Update: 28 Weeks

I’m so glad to be in Austin and settled for at least a little bit. This past weekend was the first time our little family was here all together in over a month. It was so nice! I’m also looking forward to celebrating Christmas here and having family visit instead of having to travel again. I’m not sure if I’ve …

37 weeks pregnant

Well technically I’m almost 39 weeks at this point. I can’t believe my due date is eight days away! I know it’s just an estimated date and that truly he could come up to two weeks after but it’s been fun counting down the weeks until this day arrives. We’re planning on having a “due date” date night if baby …

Biweekly Update: 36 Weeks

I’m technically at 37 weeks today as I write this but we’ll just say I’m 36 weeks for this post. I’ll take the extra time. 🙂 It’s so weird thinking that baby could really be here any day or he could take his sweet time and decide not to show for another 5 weeks. At least I know that if …

Biweekly Update: 34 Weeks

Okay 6 weeks left really? This is absolutely nuts. Honestly, Thing 3 could arrive anywhere from 2 weeks before to 2 weeks after our due date so really we are more in a range of 4-8 weeks. I’m thinking 4 is way too short so hopefully he’ll hang on til the end! Big thing this week was finding a pediatrician. …

Biweekly Update: 32 Weeks

Less than eight weeks to go until due date! Quick update on how Thing 3 and I are doing. Big thing of the week:  I think we found a daycare that will take our little boy part-time! We have been doing lots of research and it’s been hard to find a decent center that is close to our house and my …

Biweekly Update: 30 Weeks

We are officially in the homestretch! I’ve started a countdown on our chalkboard at home and it’s really surreal to see the number of weeks left slowly creep down. We have almost exactly 2 months to go as I write this and it just seems impossible! How far along: 30 weeks Maternity clothes: Either wearing maternity clothes or stretching out my regular …

Biweekly Update: 28 Weeks

Time for another update. The third trimester is in full swing and I’m feeling much of the same. I did have some sharp lower abdominal pain on my right side 3 days in a row this week. I’m pretty sure it’s round ligament pain. It only lasted maybe 5-10 minutes each time but if it keeps coming back or lasts …

Biweekly Update: 26 Weeks…2/3 of the Way!

Whoa…according to most sources I am technically in my third trimester starting next week which means Thing 3 is 2/3 of the way cooked! I will probably say this every update, but I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like Joe and I have been keeping pretty busy with friends, spending time with each other and …
