Week 34 update (I think)

Someone asked me the other day how I was feeling, if I was to the point where I am done being pregnant yet.  I said no, I'm feeling pretty good, no complaints, I love it.  Well immediately after making that statement I should have found a big hunk of wood somewhere and beat the heck out of it because I kid you not, less than 24 hours later, I now know what it means to be "done being pregnant", and I will be getting into that a little later I'm sure.  
I have stated my new job.  I actually have been doing it for a while now, but I'm to the point where I can start making my daily goals on a pretty consistent basis.  This is a MAJOR milestone for me.  I have never been able to get to this point this quickly on any account that I have worked on before.  It would be a good thing if there was actually enough consistent work that I could consistently make my goals, but thats a whole other ball game and yes I know, I should be working, but I'm being lazy today because who isn't lazy when you only get 2-3 hours of sleep the night before and a less than 45 minute nap in the afternoon.  Besides there's hardly any work as usual.  ;)  

Weight Gain:  I had my appointment today and I asked the nurse if I had gained any weight because when she moved the scale it looked like the same number.  She said I had gained a half pound in 2 weeks.  I think thats more from the 2 candy bars a day that I have been eating for the last 3 days, plus all the icecream and whole milk (the store was out of 2%)  So that brings me to a total of 20 pounds so far.

Symptoms: Last time I said that I couldn't breathe if I was up and about.  Well you can change that to I cant breathe if I'm up and moving, sitting still, lying down....breathing sucks these days.  I'm hoping that she drops soon so that I can have some relief in that area...although I have a feeling that will cause a whole other mess of problems for me LOL.  Sometimes though when I'm walking I would swear she has already dropped. I know I haven't ever experienced it before, but sometimes it seriously feels like she's about to fall out when I'm walking and it really kinda hurts.  Maybe that's her trying to drop lower, I don't know.   

Cravings: Water and Ice and watermelon.  Really its just the ice that I want, but we don't have a crushed ice machine here so I have to drink the water to get the ice to melt so that its chewable.  Good since I need water, but bad because I want ice all the time I'm drinking all the time, therefore running to the bathroom all the time.  (Hmm maybe that's why Richard told me the other day he wasn't going to take me to the movies because I will have to go to the bathroom LOL)
I am loving:  That her room is completely painted, AND cleaned out AND Richard shampooed the carpet tonight, AND tomorrow I'm going to do some spot scrubbing.  I asked him about putting the crib together and he said that he wants to do it tomorrow which means that we will be getting a mattress this weekend probably.  OMG this is all so cool to me.  I can't wait to see how its all going to look. 
I'm also loving that when I lay down at night I usually lay on my left side.  Well she always sticks her foot up in the air (or a knee, so maybe she sleeps like her daddy)  Anyway.  This little knub pops out on my right side of my stomach, you can seriously see it!  You can't touch it though because she will move it, but she usually puts it right back where it was.  I rub it just to bug her. (I'm going to be a horrible mom, I know LOL)  But its just so cute.  One second its there and then its gone, but wait its back LOL. 

I am looking forward to:  Getting all her stuff in her room. Her crib is going in this week.  Her dresser will probably be ready this weekend.  I'm going to be moving a bookcase in there this weekend as well.  I just have so much stuff that is getting ready to go in her room, then I can really start decorating it and putting it all together.  I can't wait.  I still have to wash and iron her bedding and paint a couple little things, but so far its just moving stuff in and putting things away.  I can't wait.  

I'm spazzing that:  3 weeks people, in 3 weeks I can have a baby!  (ok, as much as 6, but still)  Thats LESS THAN A MONTH!  I am so ready though.

Milestones:  I'm done.  I'm done being pregnant. Theoretically I still love it.  I love the idea of it, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, the stretchmarks that hurt, and the literal feeling like your stomach is about to pop and not breathing, and peeing all the time, and peeing when you sneeze (OMG! I didn't know about that!!! UGH!) and not being able to walk or do much of anything anymore.  I'm done.  

Movement:  We can add that she now moves in the middle of the day pretty much.  Between about 12 and 2.  Usually its after I eat and if I am sitting.  She's pretty active but still really mellow.  No hard "ouch" inducing kicks yet. :)   And so far only Richard has felt her and that was several months ago.  Usually she will start moving after someone who really wants to feel her (i.e. my mom, and a few of my friends) leave.  What can I say, girl's timing is a little off LOL
It's a...: GIRL!!!!!

Exercise: AH....HECK NO!    LOL.  There are times where I can't even get out of my car, I have to psych myself up for it LOL.  The most exercise I get is getting out of bed and walking around the house.  

Name:  Leigha Summer.   LOVE!!!  :)
