I'm 34 weeks now--only 6 weeks away from the "due date." (Quotation marks--because I can't stand that term. None of my babies have been born on or before their "due dates" so I think it's just a term that sets women up for disappointment.) Last night it occurred to me how close that really is and kind of made me slightly panic. I knew we would need a new van because we will be outgrowing our 7 passenger van, but I kept pushing it to the back of my mind because "we don't need to stress about that now." Well now, we do. So now we're on the search for a used minivan that will seat 8 (because I'm not ready to commit to a big, dorky van yet.)
So exhaustion is still really my main symptom. In case you're wondering, I've been using the liquid iron for almost 4 weeks and I still don't feel a difference. I had a few days when my energy levels seemed to be improved, but not anymore. I guess the anemia is not what is making me exhausted--it's just this mom life.
Shortly after the last bumpdate, claiming that we probably wouldn't decide on her name until birth, baby girl was given a name! We have decided not to announce it until she is here but it has been fun to imagine a sweet name attached to a squishy little newborn.
Ice cream is still my major craving! But after seeing pictures of myself and how big I'm getting, I decided it was time to try to cut back a bit. We'll see how that goes!
I really am just trying to enjoy every bit of this pregnancy. And even though I look in the mirror and feel huge and swollen, I love to photograph this pregnancy as much as possible. The pictures are just so special to me!
(all these pictures were taken today--while I wasn't wearing makeup--so I had Don cut my face out of all of the shots. #reallife)
I had to finish out this post with this little photobomber who seriously kept coming up and standing between us and the camera. It was pretty hilarious but I had to banish him to the indoors so we could quickly get a few pictures.
