32 Weeks 5 Days



Pregnancy Highlights:
32 Weeks 5 Days!
7 Weeks 2 Days remain until her due date!
I'm 81.8% through this pregnancy.
I have 51 days remaining until my due date!
Mary Helen weighs around 4-4.5 lbs. She is around the size of a Honeydew (19 in, 4.5 lbs)

I feel pretty good. I can tell that things are getting near the end though. My energy level is dropping, I get winded walking across our campus, I am more restless at night while sleeping, my belly is making it harder to move, get still, get comfortable etc.
One thing new the last few weeks has been that baby girl seems to be laying or poking around my ribs on my right side. OUCH!
So far though I can't complain. I still have hobbit feet but that's not anything new for me.

Our letters for baby girl's wall should be in soon. I saw a preliminary photo today. They look fantastic. I can't wait to put them up. Hopefully no more than 2 weeks to get them to me!!!

Sweet Gift

Yesterday a lady from work stopped by my office to deliver this:It is a beautiful hand made blanket. The ladies mom actually made it. She told me that her mom is 80 years old and that this blanket would probably be her last one. Her mom has been having trouble seeing and these blankets haven't been easy on her eyes.
The detailing is so sweet. You can tell it took time.
I thought this was just about one of the sweetest gifts ever!

Our glider chair arrived!

Over the weekend we also picked up our glider chair! Woohoo. Remember this is what it looked like.

Here it is in the room! We did go with a slightly different chair. The arms are are a little different but for the most part everything is the same! We are really just waiting on some hand made wooden letters and then also some art work to finish up her room.

Not much longer and this room will be finished!

Shower #2







Over the weekend I had another little shower. It was given by some of my PNP friends.
These were some of the pics from the shower. I also received some toys, a few outfits, as well as a gift card. We had a great time catching up.

Showered with gifts

Today was my first shower. It was given by some of my coworkers. I got some great things. Here are a few pics.

This was the food table. Yum, some great desserts!!
Sorry this is blurry. I got $ and multiple gift cards.

I also got this!!! I can't wait to get back to running. I registered for a JEEP jogging stroller and they got it for me!! Woohoo. MH and I will be out running the streets soon in this! I hope to be back in running shape for the Soaring Wings Half in October!

This was a picture of the room we had the shower in.
I never got many pictures at the shower but I got a few pictures of my gifts. I also got a pacifier, wash cloths, diapers, wipes, etc.

It was a great first shower! Thank you CBC.

I wanted to share this....

A few weeks ago I was reading Kelly's Blog and a nice lady had sent her a cute monogrammed outfit. So I decided to check her out on facebook. Needless to say I was ordering something pretty much immediately.
It is from Lois Jean's Linen's.
I love it and will be ordering more from her. Anyhow, I haven't gotten it yet but she is mailing it today. She put a sneak peak on facebook for me!!


I love it!!! If you can't tell my colors of choice are Black, White and Red everything!!!!!

31 Weeks

Today was my Dr.'s appointment. She is doing good. Doc found a HB and measured my belly. So far so good. I am still measuring 1 week early but I'm not putting much stock in that.

Here are the latest stats from the pregnancy:
  • Baby Mary Helen is 31 weeks, 0 Days.
  • I am currently 7 and 3/4 months along.
  • I have 9 weeks/42 days remaining until my due date.
  • I am 77.5% through this pregnancy.
  • She is currently the size of a head of lettuce still, except that she is weighing closer to 4 lbs. I didn't get an ultrasound today so I'm not certain how much she weighs right now. We go back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound.

So far I am feeling great! I have my first shower tomorrow. I also need to post another belly photo.
