The Countdown Is On!

I know I'm late in posting this but hey, better late than never ;o) LOL! Last Tuesday, DH and I had another check up at the IWK and I got him to take another picture of me. I'm starting to look a bit tired now -

Photobucket

But guess what? That was me at 30 weeks so the countdown is on! People are still surprised that I'm that far along when they see me so that makes me feel good ;o)

The appointment went very well and my doctor is still very pleased with my progress. The second gestational diabetes test came back negative, as I predicted. That was definitely NOT a fun three hours. My leg/pelvis pain has shifted to my right leg and really packs quite a punch of pain :o( I'm still avoiding too much walking or stairs. I can hardly lift that leg now. I'm one unhappy Pumpkin! I was hoping that when Junior moved it would go away but not so. He moved position on Tuesday and is now vertical. I'm not sure where his head is yet but hopefully he's upside down ;o) LOL!

We've taken in two prenatal classes so far and I have to say it hasn't been too bad. Interesting people to say the least...

DH continues to work on the nursery and I should have pictures soon :o) The crib arrived yesterday! We haven't opened the box yet but I hope it's what we want. The cushions for the rocker would have been here today but I wasn't home. Hopefully they will arrive tomorrow. I was really surprised that they came so soon so fingers crossed they look good!

I put through TWO FULL loads of clothes in the wash for Junior. And that was only everything up to six months! This child is going to be a clothes horse but then that's not surprising if he takes after his daddy ;o)

I have finally finished and put together Junior's Noah's Crew and I will be posting pictures of it soon!!!!

Great pic. You will be needing all the clothes you can get, with how messy little ones are. Looking forward to seeing pics of his room. Sorry you are still uncomfortable.

I sometimes wish I could be pregnant again. I really did love it. Two girls is really enough. Loving every minute of it, well most minutes.
Looking great, Cathey.

Rachel S-H said...

Counting with you! We still haven't ordered the crib and things, just the bedding. And I'm afraid to wash anything clothes-wise til we know how big he or she will be, all we know is "big and tall" so have been trying to go for bigger sizes. so happy for you.

You look adorable, Cathey! I will enjoy counting down with you! I hope Junior moves soon so it will relieve some of the pain you're having. If it was only true "It's not how you feel, it's how you look" that mattered, you'd be good to go 'cause you look GREAT!

Marjorie said...

Carol said...

Your home sounds like a beehive of activity preparing for the arrival of your little one, Cathey!! I can't believe he'll be here in two months!! You look amazing--keep up the great work :)

Catherine said...

You look fabulous! I have always thought it funny, that they prep you with all the prenatal classes and once the baby is here, they send you home without a manual!

Myra said...

Just look at you and that little pumpkin! I am glad everything is going well for you. Looking forward to seeing some nursery pictures. What color/colors are you using?

Brigitte said...

You're looking so good. It's just bad that you have that pain in your leg and pelvis, but hey, it's just for a short time. I wish you all the very very best for the next weeks.

Ranae said...

Siobhán said...

You look great!! When I was pregnant with my twins, one of them was lying so low that oh my gosh, it felt like they could reach out a hand and help me pull up my pants. LOL The pain was really bad. I loved taking baths--it helped ease the pain a bit.
