In 2 days I will be 33 weeks along! Pregnancy Update 7 Weeks Left and I really don’t have that much time left. Every day I am getting more and more excited, as well as more and more nervous.
I have done a ton of reading on what to expect for delivery and after the baby is born, but until you experience it there is really no way to prepare yourself.
I get so nervous about the unknown so I am trying to just stay excited about the baby getting here and trying not to think about the actual delivery.
Pregnancy Update 7 Weeks Left
Now I am at the point where everything I eat takes a really long time to digest so it feels like I have a whole meal stuck in my throat for hours at a time. I am also really thirsty all the time, but the drawback is if I drink too much water I get really full and it makes indigestion worse!
2. Pregnancy Weight Gain
I have gained about 36 pounds so far. Seems like I gained 30 pounds really fast and then it has taken months just to gain the last 6 pounds. I wouldn’t be surprised if I gained a few more because they say now till the end I can gain about a pound a week but luckily so far it has not happened.
3. Maternity clothes?
Now all I wear is maternity clothes, I don’t have a lot of them so I wear the same things over and over again, but I think who cares, it’s better not to waste money on a ton of stuff I won’t wear again for a long time if ever.
4. Sleep While Pregnant
It is hard to sleep on my side. I constantly wake up and find myself on my back and quickly switch to my side since they say you are not supposed to sleep on your back.
Mysteriously around 3 am I wake up and struggle to fall back asleep before my alarm goes off for work. Let’s just say the interrupted sleep has made me extra tired during the day.
5. Baby Movement
The baby moves constantly! Kicking and rolling and punching, part of me really likes it cause I know he is in there and doing good but sometimes it catches me off guard and scares me. Also sometimes it will hurt like he will bunch up and put a lot of weight in one area, but overall I like the movement.
6. Food Cravings
I have not had any food cravings at all, weird but true.
7. Baby Gender
It’s still a boy! We have done the nursery in a nautical theme, with lots of blue and yellow, and white. It has turned out really cute!
8. Baby Buys
We have everything we need for the nursery and the baby. I have found some great deals at a second-hand baby store near my mom’s house. We were able to find a glider and tons of brand-new clothes all for under $100.
I still have to wash some of the baby clothes, but I have most of them washed and put away. Every weekend I am doing one or two things in the baby’s room so hopefully, everything will be done by the time he arrives.
9. Boy Names
This is the hardest thing in the world, picking a name.
We have about 5 names we like, but we are not really telling anyone cause everyone has an opinion and they are not always the best.
We will probably bring our list of names to the hospital and pick the baby’s name there.
52 days till my due date and only 44 days left of work.
I can’t wait!
