I will have a shower post ready later this week/weekend. we mid-Atlantic folks had a huge storm come through Friday night, knocking out power in about 500,000 local homes. the baby shower was almost a disaster, but my awesome hosts pulled it together miraculously, and it was a great success. little Ronin is SO spoiled and loved already - Sean & I are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by such gracious people.
and thankfully, we have electricity. Friday & Saturday night were pretty brutal (we were running errands/showering it up all day Saturday). never again do I want to experience a power outage in the middle of a heat wave while 8 months pregnant. talk about misery.
|32 week Roninsaurus.|
how far along?
32 weeks/8 months!
how big is the baby?
baby now weighs approximately 3.75lbs and is measuring about 16.7 inches long. he is likely in the head down position now and is probably feeling a lot more cramped these days. Ronin will gain a third to one half of his weight in the next 8 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb.
total weight gain:
I'm going to guess 15lbs.
some nights are okay, some are terrible. it really just depends on how tired I am and how many times I have to get out of bed. getting in and out of bed is quite painful these days.
best moment of the week:
hands down, my baby shower. I feel so blessed to know that so many people love this little boy so much already. we got SO much stuff, and I am so grateful for every single gift. Kaley did an amazing job decorating and my MIL cooked the most delicious food for everyone. here's a sneak peek of Kaley's hard work (stolen from Heather @ Best of Both Worlds!):
popsicles, watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, lemonade.
anything real heavy.
everything under the sun. the third trimester really is a peach, I tell ya what.
most looking forward to:
working on the nursery tomorrow & Friday, my prenatal massage on Saturday afternoon, and my appointment with the physical therapist next week (for my pelvic pain).
what I miss right now:
being able to walk without wincing in pain.
July 6th (Friday).
