32 Weeks - Baby #3

I am eight months pregnant!


This week Baby Boy weighs 3.5-4 pounds, and is 17-ish inches long.  He has still been moving, but it seems like he's been slowing down the past couple weeks (of course, it might just seem like that because I've been so busy).  

My baby shower was this last Sunday!  It was a gorgeous shower, and I felt so blessed by Ashley, and my family and friends who came.  I'm writing up a post about it with lots of pictures, so keep an eye out for that next week!  For a sneak peek you can request to follow me on Instagram.


I have clothes still from when Wyatt was a baby, but a lot of the clothes for the first six months are the wrong seasons for this baby - like the 0-3 month stuff is mostly sweaters, etc., and this baby will need more summery clothes.  I got a bunch of adorable clothes from the shower that will be seasonally appropriate!  I also got new bottles, another monitor, and things like that which we needed.

Since my shower I've been spending a lot of time trying to get the nursery cleaned up and ready to go, and it's hard to find the motivation for much else right now (hence why this post is late, again).  I worked on nursery art this week, and we went hunting for an inexpensive lamp shade one day as well (no luck, and then the kids got tired, so I'm going again after work).  I got a fabric banner and the nursery art hung, clothes washed and put away, and the crib set up.  Next on the list is finding a rocker or glider or chair - something like that.

I'm now down to two-week appointments with my doctor, which is kind of exciting!  And I'm up to 26 pounds.  Ugh.  I'm gaining more with this baby for sure - with Gwen my final number was 28 pounds.  My goal at this point is just to keep it under 35.  My doctor tells me that she's sure I'll lose it all again "like you always do", but I kind of feel like my doctor and I are friends, so I'm not sure if that's the friend talking or the doctor.  Anyway, hopefully she's right!  

So last week I looked in the mirror and did a double-take, because all of a sudden it looked like Baby Boy was sitting way lower.  I brushed it off because I figured it was too early for him to drop so it must just be my imagination.  But then two separate people told me they thought it looked like he was lower too!  So maybe it wasn't just me.  My grandma wasn't surprised because she thought it looked like I had dropped around the same time when I was pregnant with Gwen.  But now I kind of feel like he moved back up again.  Is that even possible?  I don't know, but he does feel generally lower, and I suspect he's already head down (I'll see if my doctor can tell at my next appointment).  Which might also explain the sharp pains I'm starting to get down low.

I've also been thinking I need to start thinking about my hospital bag.  I like to have it packed by 35-36 weeks ever since that adventure with Wyatt, so that gives me a couple weeks to get it ready to go.  I'm thinking I'm going to get this nightshirt from Target to wear after I have him (short enough for checks, and button front for nursing):

I also need to get some new nursing-friendly items.  And a baby book, I need a baby book.  Everything else I think I already have.  I already bought him an adorable little coming home outfit!  
Less than two months to go!

I could tell when they dropped because the pain moved away from my ribs and farther down :) I have no idea where you are hiding 26 lbs!
