November 19th, 2014

It's been about a month since my last post!! I just wrote my pregnancy post, but now I need to update on everything else. 

We are officially all moved into our new house. Almost unpacked inside - still have some work to do though. I am hoping that most of it is done by next Wednesday as we are having all of our friends over for Jesse's birthday for a nice dinner. 

I have started going to the chiropractor because of pain from pregnancy. 

We are almost done with our birthing class. Only 2 more weeks to go! We are using the Bradley method which is a 12 week series.

I have also started going to Doreen's ladies small group on Wednesday nights. Which reminds me, I need to read the chapter! :O

Jesse and I went to church 1.5 weeks ago, and will be going back. We would have made it last Sunday, but Jesse had too much to do and right before I was ready to leave I didn't feel well, so I had to lay down and missed it. I was really bummed about that, but I can't tell my body how to act especially in third trimester. I am just exhausted all the time. Even running to the store for groceries seems so draining. I can get out of breath my just driving, it's ridiculous. 

Jesse went to Ohio earlier this month for training AND his best friend Daniel will start working with him at his job the Monday after Thanksgiving. They are both very excited.

Well, I have some energy at the moment, so I am going to go work on more laundry, dishes, unpacking, etc... :)

28 Weeks

28 weeks & 5 days
How many weeks?: 28 Weeks

How big is baby?: Eggplant - 14.8 inches & 2.25 pounds

Gender: Girl

Weight Gain: I have gained 19 pounds total. 

Maternity Clothes: I am wearing my maternity tops, but still getting away with my pre-pregnancy leggings. I bought 2 thermal shirts a few weeks ago that I am totally in love with. It's been in the 30-40's here the last few weeks so I've been cold.

Nursery: It will be elephant themed (my favorite animal) with grey and white colors, with pops of color. It has been put together yet. We still need a dresser, a mattress and some other little things. We need to setup the 9 cube box thing so we can put all of her books and other things away. Once we get the dresser and some hangers I can put her clothes away. 

Symptoms: Lately I have had more hip pain. I'm starting to feel a lot more drained and exhausted by doing absolutely nothing. I am trying really hard to take my vitamins because I think if I miss them, it's just adding to my exhaustion. Oh and super emotional. I could cry at so many things.

Cravings: Hot cocoa.

Sleep: I have been using 4 pillows.

What I Miss: My energy level. I miss the days where I was all motivated and able to clean the house from top to bottom. It's a good day if I did the laundry, dishes, dinner AND actually did some unpacking.

Best Moment This Week: I got to spend some good time with my husband. The last few months have been so busy between fixing the house up, moving, working, etc... that we barely got much quality time together. We have had several quality moments together this past week and I've really enjoyed them.

What am I looking forward to?: Next week is Jesse's birthday and Thanksgiving. Lots of love - family time and of course food!

Next Appointment: December 9th. It's my 32 week appointment. After that I switch to bi-weekly. I just had an appt. last week - glucose test was good, but I have mild anemia so I am on liquid iron. So gross, but I need it.
