State of My Pregnancy

I've been talking a little bit about being pregnant since August.  I've complained a little and shared my fears of postpartum depression.  I've tried not to let pregnancy overrun the whole blog, though.  So, today I thought I'd give a quick rundown of where things stand. 

I am 33 weeks pregnant.  That means there are only 7 weeks left...maybe.  George came 3 weeks early and Kennedy was 2.5 weeks early.  This means that we could have a baby in a month...or not.  Only time will tell.
I haven't bought a single thing for the baby.  There isn't much to buy.  I did give all of my baby clothes away, so I will have to buy some pretty soon.  I think Corrina and I will probably go shopping for some things this weekend.  I will also be purchasing a ring sling sometime very soon.

The baby has no name yet.  When I was still pregnant with Kennedy, I picked a name out that I knew I wanted to give to a little girl.  Kennedy already had her name, so the name was saved for our next baby.  However, when we found out that Georgia was due on my grandpa's birthday, we decided to name her after him.  The problem is that Steve doesn't really like the name I picked out.  He can't really seem to come up with anything better, though.  Kennedy and George already call the baby by this name.  I keep telling Steve that if we change it now, it will only confuse the kids.  He's pretty sure it's something they will get over quickly.  I'm not so sure, though.  Like I said, the names he suggests are awful, but I have to keep an open mind because I wouldn't want to give the baby a name her dad hates.  or would I?  Anyway, feel free to leave some suggestions. 

We had a sonogram today to check on the baby.  Since my first appointment, I have gained a total of 0 pounds.  I have lost 1.  So, we're just had to make sure the baby is a good, healthy size.  She is just fine, weighing in at 3 pounds 12 ounces.  It turns out, I'm just a little healthier than I was 8 months ago.  I eat better and exercise.  Overweight people tend to lose weight when that happens.  So, the baby is healthy.  The weight is going where it needs to and leaving the places it shouldn't be...like my thighs.

So, that is where things stand at this point in my pregnancy.  Everything is going pretty good.  I don't feel too awful.  It's coming quickly to a close.  Man, that was fast!

(by the way, my skin did clear up with the help of a vitamin D3 supplement, taking probiotic enzymes 3 times a day and using a concoction made of witch hazel and tea tree oil!)

  1. Are you sharing the name you have chosen? When I found out I was pregnant, we agreed that if it was a boy, my husband could decide on the name. I was a little worried with what he would come up with but we eventually agreed. I think it is very important for both of you to like the name, especially if this is your last child. Good luck!

  2. First of all, beautiful picture of you! Second, so happy to hear you are healthy and that it is possible to stay in that kind of shape (not gaining weight; getting rid of fat on thighs) when pregnant. I'll need a run down of what you did when it is my time :-). Third, I finally have an excuse to research baby names! I'll get back to you on those :-)

  3. Thank you! I don't want to share the name until we absolutely decide that it's the one. I don't want to set myself up for disappointment!
    As for the weight, I've just been taking care of myself. It's amazing how many calories you can save when you cut beer and wine out for a long period of time! I haven't really succumbed to my cravings, either. Not the way I did with my other pregnancies. I always acted like it was my right to eat ice cream with every meal because I'm pregnant. I have kind of changed my thinking about that this time!
