Less than 8 weeks to go until our little boy arrives! I can’t believe it. My mind has been totally baby-focused. All I can think about is when he arrives. Will he be early? Late? Right on time? And because were right in the middle of house hunting –- Will we have a house before he comes? All these things are running through my head.
A couple weeks ago we went to a 3D Ultrasound to see our little Ezekiel. We haven’t seen him ever since 18 weeks, so we were very anxious. It truly was an amazing experience. It was so crazy to see him look so much like a baby. I know that sounds weird, but this ultrasound shows everything. You can see for yourself below :).
In the ultrasound they told us he was 4.1 pounds, which is about 10 days ahead of schedule. He was supposed to be almost 3 pounds at 30 weeks and he was already 1 pound over that! All I know is this boy is not going to be tiny.
Because we don’t have a house yet I haven’t been able to set up his nursery, but I have been able to help set up his room at my parents when Ezekiel comes and stays with Grandma and Grandpa. The room is so incredibly cute! I’ll show you pictures when it’s all done :). I also have been helping with some details of the baby shower. I know that people think that I shouldn’t be involved in my own baby shower, but I love planning parties so much I just can’t help myself! The shower is only a few weeks away and it’s going to be so much fun. The theme is polka dots and the colors are fun and colorful. I’m sure I’ll do a post on the whole shower, but here’s a little sneak peak at the invitations.
I’m also completely obsessed with getting stuff for little Ezekiel. We had so much fun registering at both Amazon.com and Babies R Us and I can’t wait to see what we get! Of course we’re buying things on our own, like these adorable burp cloths. I can only imagine how crazy I’ll go with buying things when he actually arrives!
As far as how I’m feeling, I truly feel great! Yes, it’s hard to be comfortable while sleeping. Yes, sometimes I have to catch my breath because my lungs can’t fully expand. Yes, my back hurts because my belly is just getting so big. Yes, I’m about to hit the point where I’ll start to waddle around instead of walk. Yes, I wake up screaming in the middle of the night because I get a horrible calf cramp. Yes, heartburn is not just a little pain while pregnant, it’s a huge stomach ache. Yes, bending over is almost impossible at this point. BUT, it really isn’t’ as bad as it sounds. Everything is completely worth and it’s only a temporary feeling. I’m not sick of being pregnant and am so blessed to have had such a great pregnancy.
Be back tomorrow with a recipe!
Oh, and I’ll post another picture of myself soon. Every time I’m actually dressed up, I forget to take a picture. I’m in pajamas now, so it wouldn’t be too cute of a pregnancy picture. But I”ll take one soon and post it asap :).
