I’m finally in the single-digit week countdown for baby, and I could not be more excited. I had a breeze of an early pregnancy, but this third trimester has been hitting me hard. I’ve been dealing with nausea, dizziness, and some major exhaustion, so I am beyond thankful for this upcoming three day weekend! And next week? I’m only at the office two days since my mom and sister are coming in town from California for my baby shower! I think a little R&R and quality family time is just what I need to get over the hump in these final weeks.
Little baby is estimated to be around 17 inches and 4 pounds. I can attest to her filling out because all I feel is squished. Depending on where she’s positioned can make it difficult to get a deep breath or eat much. But it is reassuring that she’s continuing to grow at a healthy pace.
My weight is creeping up too, about 21 pounds total gained, but luckily I still haven’t had any swelling.
I’m most looking forward to my family being in town and putting a little more time into the fine details of the nursery! Polka dot decals will be going up on the wall soon!
