Just a few days late! I'm at the 32 week mark, and I'm officially 8 months pregnant. When I told Jeff he started freaking out thinking we only had 1 month left. I was like take a step back Sir. we've got two months. And then he preceded to go on a rant about how dumb it is that its common practice to say pregnancy is only 9 months when its actually 10, my friends. Which yes it's so dumb!!
This week the two names on our list we had went off the list. (crying!!) Having a name picked out before we leave the hospital is top priority for me this time around, so starting from scratch at 8 months pregnant has this very emotional lady freaking! I had a Doctors appointment yesterday and Baby is measuring right on for my October 20th due date.
Remember how I said he had slightly slowed down on movement last week? well he's picked back up, and I literally feel like he's trying to escape! he's so active and my stomach is moving/lopsided or you can see him trying to stretch out his little arms and legs.
Workouts were kind of a bust this past week. But I did get some in! I got in two resistance workouts and two long walks.
I am so tired!! Sleeping is becoming non existent, because I wake up every couple of hours to pee. The fatigue is what has made workouts so hard. I've been waking up early in the morning to do my workouts, but I cannot make myself get out of bed! But I am growing an active little guy so I'll just take the extra sleep ;)
Eating was good this week again. Though I have been craving mcdoubles from McDonalds and really i don't know who i am anymore. But I've been eating a lot of homegrown organic greens and thats been so satisfying!
Every morning I ask Sawyer if he's said hi to baby brother yet, and he lifts up my shirt pokes my belly and says "HELLO IN THERE!" the he gives my belly a kiss and says "hi baby brother" If thats not the cutest thing in the world, then I don't know what is.
Sawyer's second birthday is coming up and we have a rocket ship party planned. We've been practicing saying how old he is. It's just so bittersweet that my baby is growing up so fast!
Jeff and I talk about how its gonna be to go through all the crazy milestones again with our new little guy. We just can't wait! 32 weeks down, 8 more to go!
