31 weeks down!

So here we are....31 weeks. Never thought this day would come. I was saying that to Ken last night. He said before you knows it, you'll be sitting at his high school graduation saying the same thing, lol. Oh, I hope time doesn't go that fast. Although, I am trying to rush it now, lol. I'm still feeling good for the most part, I can feel the weight on my pelvic bone and it hurts sometimes when I'm walking. I feel like I get overwhelmed even going to the tiny mall here. It's like I can't stay standing for long. So I want to paint the nursery sooooo bad. But we have comany comming for a few weeks and figure it's better to wait til they go back since the room will be occupied. I just feel so disorganized and I hate that, lol. I don't even know what I have for the baby anymore, or what I need. Flora is having a baby shower for me on Wednesday. I hate showers and stuff, especially when I'm the centre of attention, but it's nice of her to do that so I'll have to get over it. Plus, it's not for me, it's for baby.
I've been doing a lot of scrapbooking and cardmaking lately. I figure if I can stock up now, I will be too busy when baby comes, lol. I need to get my christmas cards done as well and out of the way.
So my birthday was a couple weeks ago. Ken bought me a strawberry short cake, mmm, it was yummy! That's all I wanted for my birthday. He told me to get myself something. So I went and bought a show rack for the porch because I hate boots all over the place and 3 packs of baby hangers, lol. Yes, I was quite happy :) (Then last week I did some scrapbook shopping online, hehe).
I think my times spent at the cabin are getting short. We went this week to spend some time and relax, it was very nice, even lit the fire, cooked some buffalo wings and frsh corn. It was yummy. But for some reason, I wake up in pain in the mornings, I can hardly walk my hips are so bad. I just can't wait to get back home to my comfy bed.
I;m starting to feel a little anxious about labour and delivery now. Wondering if it's gonna last forever, lol. Or where I'm gonna be when it happens. Ugh, so many things I worry about when I should just wait and see what happens.
I have to go back to the Dr. again next week. See what they have to say. See how much weight I put on. I gained back the 8lb I lost on my last appointment 3 weeks ago. I don't feel like I gained any weight and I don't look any different, but I guess baby is getting bigger. I hope all is well with him and he's healthy, that's all that matters.
Anyway, that's all for now. Just have to take it one day at a time and stop wishing time away. I will see my little man soon enough! xo -C

29 weeks!

Yes, believe it or not, we have a name. Jackson Ryan Walter Reid, we will go by JR. Walter is after Hubbys Maternal Grandfather. And to think I was sure he would be nameless, lol. I'm officially into my Third Trimester. I'll be 29 weeks as of Friday. Still feeling great, but the heat is killer! I just can't handle it! I sleep with the fan on me all the time now. I hope it doesn't stay too hot all summer. It's only 20 degrees here today but it's too much for me. I had an appointment today, bp was 122/66 so still going good, Thank God! But, I gained 8 lbs in 3 weeks! So much for losing 8lbs, lol. Oh well, at least baby is growing. I'm still eating pretty good though for the most part. I try to avoid some cravings as they're not all good, lol. Kenny went to ON for a week and brought back some baby things. We were looking at paint colors for the room today, I wanna go with a nice limey green color to match the bedding. We have another ultrasound tomorrow, I can't wait to see baby again! My stomach has finally popped somewhat. I actually look preggo now, and feel it too, lol. I get leg cramps when I'm sleeping, my back aches but other than that, I'm feeling pretty good! Except for the tiredness. Gotta love afternoon naps! Anyway, thats all for now!
