Coundown 6 weeks!

Looks like there is a basketball in there!

Far Along?  33 Weeks, 6 Days!  Officially 6 weeks or less until Ledoux arrives.... AHHHH!! Seriously, where has the time gone?!  I am slightly excited, slightly terrified! 

Total weight gain/loss: I don't feel like I gained a lot this week- but I wouldn't be surprised if the doctor says I gained a pound since my last visit.  Since Ledoux is starting to gain about 6oz a week from this point on, that means I am too! However, its all baby- i did my 4 days of working out this week again- not slowing down on that anytime soon!
 
Maternity clothes? Oh yes- i'm kind of excited, because a good majority of the maternity clothes I have purchased can actually be work as normal clothes too- they aren't your usual 'maternity' looking outfits.  I still have yet to wear a pair of maternity pants! Wahoo!

Stretch marks? You already know the answer to this.  No new ones have made an appearance as of this morning. Thank god.

Size of Baby (in produce)? - Pineapple- 19"-22" long, at/around 5 pounds.

Sleep:  Sleeping good still- let's hope this keeps up for as long as possible!!!

Best moment this week:  Another ridiculously busy week this week at work- which is nice, because before I know it, another week is down!  I didn't have anything crazy happen this week, pretty boring.  I have finished everything I can do in the nursery until Lee gets home, so that is a relief. I got the cutest little chalkboards that hang on baskets from pottery barn kids, so I have labeled everything.  I can honestly say that if Ledoux was to come today, we are ready. Diapers stocked, wipeys out, bassinet ready, bottles cleaned and stored, baby monitor charging... what am I forgetting?  Oh yes- Lee!  Lee needs to get here, and then we are 100% ready (atleast in terms of what we need!)  I even have my diaper bag packed (see the pic below- its the pink Juicy Couture bag on the left!)
 


Miss Anything? My husband of course, and I am starting to miss being able to eat/drink/take whatever I want... Being pregnant, I am also having to double and triple check I am making good decesions.  I guess that isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I will be happy for the day when I can have lunch meat and wine and pop an excedrin and not think twice about it.
 
Movement: Oh yes, she's moves all the time.  Its less kicking and punching, and more rolling around in there.  It feels more like little squirms.
 
Food cravings:My addiction this week- pancakes and lucky charms.  That was my dinner 4 nights in a row, the 5th night i had only lucky charms (because I ran out of pancake batter).  And I am still drinking milk non-stop.

New Additions? I bought a couple things- some different bottles, i read on the mommy blogs that every baby takes to different bottles and nipples different, so I bought a few different kinds to try out. and i got a bottle warmer- something i had never thought of, but after reading mommy blogs, it is a must have (if you can afford it!)  So Lee and I are pretty excited about this!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
 
Have you started to show yet:  no doubt.
 
Gender: Still a lady!

Pregnancy related gripes? That terrible exhaustion is back from the first trimester, I am beyond tired all the time.  and the nasty charlie horses in my legs- i get them every night.  so painful!  I hate it.  Other than that, nothing :)

Labor Signs: No

 
Belly Button in or out? Still in!
 
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody this week because I am SICK!  I started getting sick on Friday- just really tired, a cough.  I was down all day yesterday and today it is still bad.  I hardly have a voice, and my throat just hurts so bad.  I was up for a few hours in the middle of the night drinking tea and cough drops just so that I could sleep.  I finally emailed my doctor to find out what type of medicine I can take, so hopefully she gets back to me today.  I am so scared to take anything, because I read on one website a medicine is ok, and then another says it isn't... so I am totally confused.  Being pregnant and sick SUCKS!  I can't just go to the store and buy cough medicine and call it a day. so I am in bed, with tea and cough drops and water, just resting hoping to start feeling better.
 
Looking forward to: Another doctor appointment on Tuesday!

Other news?  My honey may or may not be coming home :)  I can't say much more than that, but I am counting down the days to see him!!
Patiently waiting for dad and our little sister to get here!
