what a week! Goodbye 31 weeks, hello 32!



Far Along?  31 Weeks, 6 Days!  8 weeks, 2 days to go!!

Total weight gain/loss:I dont think it has changed much since last week- working out, still eating good- so +11.  I have my doctor appointment Tuesday so we will see if anything has changed.
 
Maternity clothes? I actually wore a cute pre-Ledoux dress for my baby shower yesterday, i was pretty excited I still had one that looked cute lol!

Stretch marks?  No new ones, thank goodness!!

Size of Baby (in produce)? - Still a head of lettuce, and according to the ultrasound yesterday, she is about to break the 4 pound mark!

Sleep:  no complaints.  I can't tell you how much my belly pillow has helped and saved my life (thanks to an old friend from childhood who recommended it weeks ago! ) :)

Best moment this week:  Gosh where do I start?  3 things: I got a box from Afghanistan from Lee, 4-d ultrasound, and Babyque!!
1.) Lee send Ledoux and I a huge box this week with some things he had found for us.  He got a us matching fur blankets (and yes...they are real fur!!) and they are gorgeous.  He also got a wood camel that I put in Ledoux's nursery, and a thing of Afghan money (a little memento for her to keep!)  So cute!!  He also sent a bunch of his stuff home... which means we are getting closer to a date for him to come home!!!!!!  Olivia didn't know what to think of the box that we got though... lol!  She must have smelled the fur in it!
A box from Dad!
2.) 4-d Ultrasound!!  Yesterday morning, my parents and my friend Heidi and I went to xdi ultrasound (amazing!) and got a 4-d ultrasound done!  It was the same place I got my 12 week one... and it is a mind trip how much has changed in that somewhat short time!  I still am staring at all the pictures, somewhat dumbfounded that this little baby is in my belly.  It is so crazy to actually see her face.  she was swallowing, moving her hands, opening her eyes... and we saw it all on the screens.  I can officially say after that, I am getting pretty excited to see her in the real!!  Some highlights of the ultrasound: she has her mama's nose and HUGE lips... lee and I are still trying to figure that one out.  Her feet are also super long (from her mama!) they measure 3 inches, and her head is measuring 3 weeks ahead of schedule (35 weeks, 4 days...)  Whoa baby!  and... she has her daddy's big head (literally, not figuratively of course :) ) And... another thing she got from her mom.. HAIR!  She already has hair!  My dad started to talking to her in the ultrasound yesterday and she smiled!  For comparison, Here is what she looked like at 12 weeks:


Sleeping!
and here is what she looks like now:
A little smile!












3.) Babyque! Yesterday was also my babyque!  It was such a success- a total anti baby baby shower!  No dumb games and lame activities... it was a bbq and day drinking.. which are two of my favorite things!  Even though I couldn't drink, it was still a lot of fun!  My friend Heidi flew in from Denver and my parents drove up, and I couldn't have done it without them. Soo much work!  I am exhausted today, but it was worth it.  Ledoux is beyond spoiled, she has more clothes than she will probably be able to wear!!  Some of our favorites include the yellow crocs from her opa and gamma (or whatever my mother wants to be called!), and her onesie from gma and gpa abel that says "I love my daddy's tattoos!"  My friend Laura also hand made Ledoux a blanket that is GORGEOUS! My friend KelliAnn is a little shutterbug and took great pics, but until I get those, these will have to do!  The party started about 3 and went until 11 last night!  Everyone drank out of mason jars, and we had sangria, champagne (with a popsicle in it!), margaritas, and a beer cocktail (made with PBR of course!) We also had mini sodas and water (baby sizes) and made sliders and mini hotdogs for dinner.  SOooo much fun! 
Everyone drank out of mason jars!
I made sure Lee was there is spirit- PBR


 


Miss Anything?  Lee of course, but it was pretty awesome being able to take the ipad to the ultradound yesterday and skype him in.  He had to get up super early, but it felt so special being able to have him be a part of that.  He didn't say much.. he just stared at the screen lol!  later, we decided we make pretty cute kids!
   
Movement:  lots of moving and grooving, but she still doesn't move much in the day time.  shes a morning and night baby... great.
 
Food cravings: the milk cravings haven't subsided.  still drinking it nonstop.  

New Additions? oh gosh, where do i start?  the babyque came with lots of great gifts.  Lee and I still need some stuff, but I think we are well on our way.  We have a great pack and play for Ledoux's gma and gpa abel (thank you!) and a car seat/stroller from my parents.. as well as a million other things.  We want to get a jogger stroller, a nap nanny, and a bumbo... as well as some bottles and other necessities, but for the most part, we are pretty set!


Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
 
Have you started to show yet:  gosh yes.
 
Gender: Girl! this has been confirmed!  so much for the baby boy dreams haha!  Maybe next time honey! :)

Pregnancy related gripes? Other than getting really tired and achy really easily, i don't have much to complain about.

Labor Signs: No

 
Belly Button in or out? In
 
Wedding rings on or off? On
 
Happy or Moody most of the time: I haven't had time to even think about this!  between work being crazy busy and this weekend being non-stop, its been all good!
 
Looking forward to: getting the last necessities, putting the nursery together (I have to find spots for all of her new stuff!!) and 4th of July weekend (its a long weekend which means I get to relax!)  I also want to ask my doctor about Ledoux's big head and if that means her due date may be sooner than later.

Other news?  I don't think I can handle any more news!!! its been a jam packed week!  feeling very lucky today to have great family, an amazing husband, fabulous friends, and an overall good life :)
