This past weekend we had a baby shower! Hosted by Mandy and Allie, who did a great job! We played Baby Bingo, visited with our families, and of course ate a bunch of yummy snacks! My favorite feature was the "Bath water" punch. It was blue punch, with ice creams "suds" and rubber duckies, which did not want to stay afloat, but still a cute idea! We got so much stuff! My main task this week will be organizing the baby's room. It was so much fun, and we are so thankful for such generous friends and family.
I am just starting my 34th week, can you believe it?? I can't believe how fast the past few weeks have gone, but every day we grow more excited in anticipation of our little boy. Especially now that we have all of the paraphanalia that goes along with a new addition. The only thing left now is the baby! (and a few other odds and ends!)
Here is my update from the past week:
How far along: 33 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 20 Pounds
Stretchmarks: None yet . . . but they could still make an appearance!
Sleep: Ok. If this cough would go away, it would be much better.
Best Moment This Week: A trip back to Iowa and a baby shower! We were able to see some of our family that we haven't seen for a few months, so it was good to catch up.
Movement: Good! Sometimes I can't believe how strong he is.
Belly Button: Out.
What I am Looking Forward to: We are painting the baby's room this weekend! And of course getting his room all organized and finally ready for a baby! (still waiting on our crib to arrive).
Milestones: Baby Boy should measure in at about 20 inches and around 5 1/2 pounds or so. Also, for those of you who are curious, his little testicles should be making their downward journey this week.
