Me this week-
I know the last post was a recap of weeks 31-35, but since then I caught up on some edited pics/collages for the last few weeks. So here they are from weeks 33-36, and all together so maybe someone will notice a difference or not in the last month.
And here we are at 36!! :)
36 weeks is considered the last week of pre-term, so it's a BIG milestone making it through week 36!!
We took down the wall between the living room and office immediately after moving in. It opens up the living room so much more and lets SOOO much light in. This was the in-between stage, with random furniture everywhere. It was a construction zone for a while and was pretty tricky. One of our couches is under that plastic wrap in the back of pic.
I was happy to get some of my deco back up! This is a fav of mine, that on of my TTC/Instagram friends made a few years ago. Ironically, it now matches the paint colors we picked for the first floor... totally by chance!! When it went back up, I realized it was kind of a weird coincidence! The whole first floor is a light gray except for the dining room, which is a light aqua... woaaa!
The dining room (the whole house is still cluttered, but things are getting there!). :) We've only been in exactly a month, and with me being super pregnant and having the energy of a sloth, this is pretty damn good! :)
Sunsets are gorgeous here... and it's another perk of having taken the wall down!! We can enjoy them more! :)
Bee's crib is ready!! I KNOW there shouldn't be anything in a crib with a baby, especially the bumper, Pooh bear, blanket, but since he won't be sleeping in here for a bit, I had to set it up cute because heck, I've always dreamed of setting up the nursery in a fun way!! :) I still have A LOT of decorating to do but it'll get there. This part looks so cute and I love it! :)
Filled out my hospital forms to pre-register... Now whenever we end up there, it's one less thing we have to waste time on or worry about! :)
Pool date with some friends calls for a new suit!! :) It feels GREAT being in the water because there's virtually no heavy weight felt by my belly! :)
A sweet friend sent us this onesie in the mail... AHHH!!! How cute is this?! Thank you, Dorrie!! We LOVE it! (I've secretly always wanted one and just hadn't gotten around to ordering one!) Can't wait to put it on him! There's even a cute heart on the butt!
Some belly shots... I've started to get SUPER DUPER emotional, knowing I'm going to miss this part so so much. I know I get to trade it for baby snuggles, but it'll be different. I've loved being pregnant and feeling Bee move and kick has been one of the major highlights. I love this little dude so much, therefore the belly so much. Trying so hard not to take it for granted and miss out since our time is winding down in this stage. <3
And yes, STILLLLL doing Zumba!! (When I can, anyway!!). I haven't been able to go for 3 weeks, since before school got out, because the days I go just didn't work out with my schedule and I was bummed about that. I also think it made things a little harder for me too- it definitely affects my energy and activity level on other days for sure! Marisol ended up subbing for a different class so on the last day of week 36, I made it! :) I'm DEFINITELY much slower each time, but I made it through the first half hour without a problem! I pushed through the 2nd half but at a muchhhh slower pace, since my feet were starting to hurt and give up on me. It's pretty comical to me, but I certainly am not overdoing it whatsoever. By now, I know how to modify safely and I know what I can/can't handle. Plus, the Drs are all for it. :) Each day I make it, it could possibly be my last class... you never know!
Bee this week-
Our little munchkin is almost ready to come out!!! He's getting bigger by the week and so is my belly! It's fun to imagine him in there! He's already head-down and my OB can usually tell where his feet and butt are by feeling the outside of my stomach (so crazy how they can do that!).
At my OB office, week 36 is when they start internal/cervical exams, to see how the baby is positioned and how things are progressing. My 36-week exam showed I was 1cm, and the Dr. felt his head! EEEK!! We weren't expecting anything yet, so this was kind of a "WOA!" moment for us! I know these exams are not indicators of when the baby will arrive, but it still felt strange and surreal for us to hear that. We could go into labor any day OR we could stay this way for weeks. Only time, and Bee, will tell! :)
