Highlights of Week 33
Baby is still head down, but definitely moving closer to my ribs! My belly looks so much bigger all of a sudden now that it's up high rather than down low. At my appointment this week (33 +4) baby was measuring 34 weeks, so I'm glad the little turkey has decided to grow a bit!
Will's brother, his wife, and their baby Kinsley were visiting from Calgary last week, which was lots of fun. Kinsley is 4 months old, and probably the best baby ever. I didn't hear her cry the whole time they were here, she fusses a bit, but is such an easy baby. My fingers are crossed that happy babies are in Will's genes!
Lots of walks with Baxter! I attempted some beach volleyball, but quickly decided that my center of balance is waaaay off, so no more v-ball for me until baby comes out!
So much watermelon! We tried cutting our last watermelon into sticks instead of triangles, and I am in love, I highly recommend it.
Pizza- we tried this recipe for breadmaker pizza dough- holy yum!! Do it now....or once it cools off enough to use the oven! It's been so darn hot here, but I was craving pizza for a few days, so I went for it (so worth it!!).
Green smoothies- I've been really trying to have one each day since green veggies haven't been especially appealing lately (aside from cucumbers- bring on the cukes!!). The last one that I made had spinach, pineapple, frozen cherries and blackberries and unsweetened almond milk. WWill is usually a little grossed out by green smoothies, but even he had a glass of that one!

How I'm feeling
So tired. Even though I now have the freedom to nap whenever, I just cant sleep for more than 45 min- 1 hour at a time- night or day! I'm experimenting with moving into our guest bedroom for a few nights to see if the bed in there works a little better for me- the mattress is quite a bit firmer, so I'm hoping maybe that will help a little!
Still not much soreness overall- yay! My upper back is starting to get a little tight, but I have massage next week so hopefully that will get straightened out.
We finally got the crib and glider set up in the nursery! Yay! I'm heading out right now to go and get a curtain rod so I can hang the curtains that I got from Winners. The room is looking pretty good, but especially boy-ish. I guess that's because that is what I think I'm having. If we end up having a girl I'm definitely going to have to add some girly accents!
I also bought some super cute frames that semi fit with our color scheme, so now I have to decide what to put in them.
I finally started experimenting with my sewing machine- a difficult task to teach yourself. I'm hoping that with some practice I'll start to figure out what the heck I'm doing! I bought some minky material to make a blanket for my niece (who was due on Saturday, so could be here any day!) so I better get on that.
