Mommy's Favorite Things: 33 weeks!

33 weeks!

I officially (today!) have 7 weeks left of this pregnancy. Since subsequent babies usually come earlier or about the same time as the first I could potentially have 6 weeks left (I delivered Avery dead smack at 39 weeks). I'm starting to freak out.
Just about everything is ready to go, I'm just freaking about having a newborn again! It's been 4.5 years!!!

This weekend I got all clothes washed. I also washed up the Swing and Car Seat. Most diapers are prepped and washed. I have a few more to do before baby gets here.

Next weekend Grandma is taking Avery for the whole weekend and at that point we will rearrange all bedroom furniture and set up the playpen/bassinet, I will recover our glider chair, and I need to do last minute shopping for small baby things like hooded towels, nail clippers, bibs etc. Small stuff.

Other than that besides packing bags and installing the car seat everything will be ready to go! I'm thankful that I'm ready for this baby at any time now.

So far there have been 2 babies born from my December group and a set of twins being delivered today! It's surreal that I'm coming up on this delivery day!

I have been diagnosed with Pregnancy Induced Carpel Tunnel syndrome and it stinks. It's getting worse and worse by the day. The braces at night aren't helping and it stinks... I'm constantly sore and in pain. My fingers are always stiff. I can't wait to deliver so this goes away.
I have officially gained DOUBLE what I did with Avery!!!! I'm at 30 pounds gained already. I only gained 15 with Avery.
These past few weeks I haven't even been all that hungry. Typically eating 2 meals a day and a snack. I still gained 8 pounds in the past 4 weeks!!

Oh well. It's mostly in my belly so I should lose it shortly after the birth. I gained a little bit in my butt and thighs, but not a significant amount!
Here is 32 weeks. I was really big there for a while, and now have tapered off. I haven't grown at all in the past 4 weeks. I have gotten a longer belly though as opposed to out. He's using all the uterine space he can!

And I got his coming home outfit finished! This is a Romper from Urban Elk and I knit the booties and hat to match. It's not a perfect match, but I think it looks good!

Now that is competed I need to stop knitting all together until after my carpel tunnel clears up. It doesn't hurt me to knit but I notice the next day I'm significantly more sore then I was the day before.

Here's to the next 6-7 weeks!

Wow, you're good! I'm due tomorrow and I only got finished with prepping diapers and washing the car seat last week! I still haven't finished packing my bag and we have an unfinished attic renovation on our hands that still needs a week. I gave birth one day before the die date with my first, but looks like this time I'll be a couple of days later - I hope!
