Hello everyone! I hope you've had a great week so far! I sure have. My pain has been pretty minimal, I've had so much energy and started washing blankets and burp cloths... I am just getting so excited! And now that we're in June, it feels like it's coming very quickly! I just can't wait to meet this little girl. She is SO active. And she responds to me too which I think is incredible. When there is a moment that I am concerned that I haven't felt her in a while, I'll talk to her and tell her to say hello, and then she'll kick me! Sean always tries to love on her in the morning. Sometimes she'll be super responsive to him but then there are times I'll feel her move and then as soon as he puts his hand on my belly, she'll stop. It's pretty funny. But we are so eager to meet her!
How far along: We're now into week 35 and I just can't believe how fast it's all come. There are definitely times where I feel like I've been pregnant for way longer, and I'm sure my office mates feel the same with my complaining. But now that we are down to the last 5 weeks, I'm feeling like this will fly by!
What I'm craving: Nothing at this very moment. You know I never had any crazy cravings. I so wanted to send Sean out in the middle of the night to pick up something weird, but it's just never come to that. What were your weirdest cravings??
How I'm feeling: Excited! Even though I am missing Jasmine's graduation festivities this weekend, they will be up here on Monday to help get the house ready. I'm so excited to do more laundry, put together the bassinet, and get the house prepped for baby!
What I bought this week: Oh the car seat thing was a little bit of drama... Remember when I said last week that it wouldn't ship until the end of June, well the next day it actually cancelled the order completely! Fortunately, I know the buyer and he was super helpful. We got a new ordered placed this week and doesn't look like there will be any issues, and the ship date was sooner! I plan on buying little things this weekend that will help me stay organized in my diaper bag. I was also looking into reusable nursing pads when someone mentioned those to me, so if you have any suggestions, please share!
What I'm most excited about this week: Seeing my mom and sister on Monday :) Each day that goes by is a day that's closer to meeting Mini. I washed her going home outfit and hospital receiving blanket last night, so at least if she does come early, I'll be prepared for that! Washing all of the clothes and bottles I can wait on, but I at least want to get my hospital stuff prepared in case we do have to make an early trip. I know my mommy will be amazing and get everything I need ready while I'm in the hospital, so it's just preparing for those moments right before.
Any last minute things I need to get? I feel pretty good about the number of clothes we have, blankets, etc... so if there's anything you couldn't live without or were a lifesaver for you, let me know! I would have never thought of the reusable nursing pads.. so share that info!
