It’s the most wonderful time of the year …

WOW I am so behind in posting an update it’s scary 🙂

So right now I am 32 weeks along and officially in the 3rd trimester Less than 2 months to go. EDD is around 1/15/13!  Updates, the chiropractor has been great, I still get lower back pain now and then but I try and have nice warm showers when that happens.

E&M came down for Halloween which was fun. We went trick or treating (it was so hot) I was lazy and ended up just staying in my Cruella Deville outfit. We then took them out for dinner. The next day was our court hearing/birth order. I got us all lost (blush) which was stressful, luckily the judge had pushed us back and was seeing other random cases first. So we ended up waiting for about an hour and a half before he saw us. He wasn’t the most friendly of judges but it went smooth enough.  We went and pre-registered at the hospital too.

We had to miss going up for the baby shower which was disappointing but I was just to tired to travel. I was told it went off beautifully. I can’t wait to see pictures from E&M.

Since then my Dr. appointments have been pretty regular. I go every 2 weeks now. I failed my 1 hour glucose test (boo) but thankfully passed the 3 hour test (my Dr. apparently wasn’t worried at all J) We’re looking at possible inducing come January if everything looks good. I’m hoping my body will follow along the same courses that it did with my 2 boys but we’ll see. She could surprise us all. For right now she needs to bake a little longer. Although I am exhausted ALL THE TIME…. Despite being an old woman and going to bed early almost every night.  And it’s not like I can even drink coffee or soda for the caffeine because 1. it make me feel so sick and 2. it’s not good for the baby.

Last weekend we went to a nearby town to have a 3d/4d scan done. The lady was nice although a little eccentric. Pictures turned out lovely, despite the baby being a stubborn little miss and holding the umbilical cord in front of her face! Lately she has been moving around like crazy (I’m talking somersaults!!) mostly in the evening.  

I can’t believe that it’s Thanksgiving next week already. I’ll be at home on Thursday and Friday (We’ll probably put the Christmas tree up on Thursday … can’t wait!) Now we just have to decide if we’re going to do a nice beef roast or chicken. I’ll wait till closer to the day and see what the grocery store has. I will be making Malva pudding (a sugary apricot sponge cake) so I have to go to World Market sometime and buy some custard.  

Anyway onto the bump pictures up to date: Weeks 27-32 …. And HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

Countdown to Halloween

I know it’s been over a month since I last updated but finding time to write is hard (or rather I’m just terribly lazy!)

Today we (meaning me, Caleb, M&E) are 26 weeks along. Less than around 100 days to go … crazy how the time is flying!

A little update on what’s been going on. I did end up going to Asheville to visit my BFF for her birthday. We had lots of fun and she was very surprised and happy to see me. The drive wasn’t too bad, a little tiring.

The weather has been cooling down nicely except for the odd HOT day. We take advantage of the cool/hot weather by going to the beach which has been fun.

I’ve also started going to see a chiropractor for my lower back (and because it’s really good to go when you’re pregnant.) I went for my second session today which was great (much better than the first which hurt, which I knew it would!)

I’ve also been so tired lately (and moody poor Caleb and the boys get the brunt of my hormones! I’m trying to be better about it though.)

I am on a Halloween and Fall high right now, it’s my favourite time of year. It’s getting cooler, Halloween is around the corner, then Thanksgiving and then Christmas! I can’t wait! I decorated at home and at work so I am in full scary mode. The boys are dressing up as Batman and Captain Hook, I will be Cruella Deville at work and then as a scary mummy when we go trick or treating.

We have our court date set for November 1st – basically the birth order making sure the hospital and the court know that this precious little baby isn’t mine and that she belongs to E&M! It’ll be fun to see them! Then a friend of E’s is throwing her a baby shower on November 10th which we get to go to as well, looking forward to that, although I have some secret planning that I have to do that I must not forget!

 We have some fun plans for this weekend. Caleb and I are taking the boys to a nearby farm stall that has hayrides, pumpkin painting and a petting farm yard which I know they’ll enjoy. Then there is a great “fancy” burger place called Fat-Patties that Caleb has been dying to try (twist my arm why don’t ya!) which we’ll go to for lunch. We might even get a trip to the beach squeezed in too (maybe the waves will be good for Caleb to surf!)

 Anyway, I’ll try not wait as long to post next time. Onto the obligatory belly pictures (weeks 22-26) plus a bonus bikini one:
