Bring on the summer dresses because I am in full on summer mode now. =)  Only a few days left before July is officially here!  Maxi dresses, hats, sandals and sunscreen, here I come!

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 32 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  Squash!  (I got ahead of myself last week and said squash but it was actually the size of a pineapple then)

Total weight gain: 17 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope…not yet.

Sleep:  Still needing my mid-day naps in order to properly function for the rest of the day.  There was one day this week where I decided to skip my nap and by the end of the day I realized I had wore my shirt backwards the entire day!!

Best moment this week:  I have two this week!  My friend at work organized a baby shower for me this week and it was absolutely amazing.  We all went out for dinner and the little one inside me got showered with tons of presents!  She’s already being spoiled by all her mama’s beautiful friends.  Lucky gal!  The second best moment this week was going to my ultrasound to check if baby is growing (because my OB said I was measuring a bit small).  She looks great and is already 4 lbs 11 ounces at the moment.  The tech said that I’m basically all baby weight so far.  It was such a relief to know she is doing okay in there.  Now I’m just hoping she turns on time as she’s still currently breech, otherwise it will be a caesarian for me.  ouch!

Worst moment of the week:  The store where we bought our change table shipped the wrong one to us!!  After a week of being on the phone with them and disassembling the parts, we are getting a full exchange for the one that we originally said we wanted.  It was super aggravating at first because they gave us the attitude like we decided to simply change our minds last minute.  Umm…no!  Their sales associate was obviously incapable of writing down the correct model number when we pointed to the change table that we wanted to purchase.  Grr…I get very worked up about bad customer service…

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Having energy to do things.  I feel like I’m always tired in the late afternoons now.  Most days, I don’t even feel like I have the energy to go to the mall (I know, right?! what?!!)

Movement:  yup!  Lots of moving around now even during the day.  I feel like it’s a matter of time before I see the shape of a hand or foot stretched out on my belly.

Food Cravings: I’ve replenished my gelato supply in my freezer so I’m definitely still craving dairy.  I’ve also been drinking two tall glasses of organic milk everyday!  The burger cravings are also still present.  At my second baby shower this week, I had a bacon cheddar burger and it was absolutely satisfying.  This girl loves her protein eh?  My friend has decided to nickname her Chuck or Angus. lol!!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  For sure!  My hubby was imitating the way that I walk now. =P

Belly Button in or out?  In, but it’s still so close to being an outie.  It kind of looks like a weirdly shaped cinnamon bun right now.  eww right?

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy

Looking forward to:  Getting more items for the nursery and more catch up time with girlfriends (I want to do as much of this before she arrives and takes over my life! haha)

Woo hoo!  It’s officially the first day of Summer!  Although I won’t be vacationing on a different continent this Summer, I am looking forward to meeting our little bundle of joy in less than two months!  Time is flying by so quickly!  I better keep up with my to do list before she arrives!  =)  Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend so far!  The sun is out! =)

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 31 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  Pineapple!

Total weight gain: 17 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope…not yet.

Sleep:  Definitely needing my mid-day naps for sure!  I basically come home from work and sleep until my hubby wakes me up for dinner.

Best moment this week:  Enjoying a well deserved date night with the hubs.  We watched a wonderful cirque du soleil show, had a delectable dinner at one of my favourite restaurants (Chambar) and finished the evening off with a foot massage at home.  I usually don’t like people touching my feet, (I’ve never enjoyed pedicures…) but ever since I entered my third trimester, I seem to love a good foot rub before bed time from my hubby.  =)

Worst moment of the week:  Not being able to sleep very well.

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Being able to walk fast.  I’ve always been a fast walker so I really feel like a granny now when I’m waddling next to my hubs at the mall or taking twice as long to take a flight of stairs.  But hey, I was still walking faster than him up until I was 6 months preggers.

Movement:  Definitely!  I’m totally cool with it though.  She can keep doing her somersaults in there as much as she wants.

Food Cravings: I’ve had gelato every night this week so I’m guessing I’m craving ice-cream.  I also had a huge craving for a sandwich this week and decided to go big and eat one of Safeway’s gigantic gourmet sandwiches.  I had the chicken bacon guacamole sandwich on ciabatta…oh em gee, my mouth is watering just thinking about it again.  I love sandwiches but have been avoiding them throughout this entire pregnancy so far to avoid any bacteria in deli meats.  Needless to say, I couldn’t resist any longer…so I caved.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  For sure!  Servers at restaurants always say congrats to me and the little one right before they take our order.  Random people on the streets ask when I’m due too.  It’s great to see my big belly putting a smile on peoples’ faces.

Belly Button in or out?  In, but ever so slightly.  My friend asked me if I have my belly button pierced the other day because it looked like it was protruding so much underneath my shirt. Nope, it just looks like that right now.  I’m still waiting for it to pop out.   Maybe one day she’ll just give it a big kick in there and voila, it’ll become an outie! 😉

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy

Looking forward to:  The baby showers my friends and family have planned for me.  I’m so excited to see everyone!! 🙂

30 Weeks!

Oh my gosh!  I’m officially in the 30’s now…not my age just yet but with my pregnancy weeks!  eeeks!!  I feel like there’s still so much to do but so little time.

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 30 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  Cucumber!

Total weight gain: 16 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep:  She has been moving around and kicking up a storm right when I’m trying to fall asleep.  Hence, sleep has not been very good.  Can’t believe she’s already taking sleep away from me and she’s not even born yet!!

Best moment this week:  Our crib finally arrived!  Super excited to have our first piece of furniture in the nursery!  Let the decorating begin!

Worst moment of the week:  Having to pack up my classroom in a very short amount of time before going on my maternity leave all because of job action happening at our schools at the moment.  Thankfully, I had two very helpful educational assistants in my class that pretty much helped me take down things off the walls and helped me organize!  Thank you ladies!!

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Being able to get up easily on my own without looking like a turtle on its back.

Movement:  Definitely!  She’s such an active one.  My friend told me that her mom said active babies tend to arrive earlier than the expected due date.  Uh oh!  I’m not ready for her yet.  I just started on the nursery!! lol!

Food Cravings:  The burger cravings are still there.  i had a white spot BC chicken burger this week and another A and W one.   I also seemed to crave dairy this week too.  Not only did I drink a ton of milk this week but my hubby and I also went to our favourite gelato store and bought 1 liter of my two favourite flavours (pistachio and hazelnut) and I swear, I’m ready to go back for more already. 😉

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  For sure!  People no longer look at my face first…just straight to my belly now. lol.

Belly Button in or out?  In, but ever so slightly.  If I wear something super thin, you’d think I already have an outie. 😉

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  It was a mix of emotions this week at work.  Tears of joy and sadness as we celebrated retirements, farewells, and the rush of finishing everything up in a short amount of time.

Looking forward to:  More nursery furniture arriving and catching up with girlfriends! =D
