Baby's size: Squash (perfect for fall!)

Next appointment: 10/5

Total weight gain: 56.2. So, up half a pound this week, which is about right.

Sleep: Averaging 6 to 7 hours, interrupted once or twice by bathroom/water breaks. So, getting ready for a newborn!

Food cravings: CARBS. Squishy, bread-y carbs.

Symptoms: Bad heartburn (Zantac time!) and starting to breathe heavier, which freaks Mr. Hope out even though I tell him it's normal.

What I'm loving: How close we are to meeting our little guy!

What I'm not loving: The need to pee every 45 minutes or so.

What I'm looking forward to: My next OB appointment. At the last one, she told me she wanted to induce at 37 weeks. I want to clarify why and also start talking dates.

Best moment this week: My coworkers threw me a surprise baby shower yesterday. And it was 100% a surprise, too! I thought I was going into a strategy meeting (and was kind of cranky about it) and there was everyone. I feel so lucky...and so loved.


  1. What a lovely surprise from your coworkers!! I had the heartburn too, and it sure did suck. And I would get out of breath from doing something like folding sheets, yet I could go upstairs with no problems!! Pregnancy is so weird. 32 weeks!! Not long to go now!!

    1. I told Mr. Hope that getting dressed is a sport worthy of Olympic medals these days. :)

  2. I know you probably don't feel like it but time is flying! Not too much longer til little man is here!!!

    1. I totally feel that way! Like he's going to be here in a blink of the eye. The only thing I'm freaking out about is that we haven't installed the car seat yet. Everything else is almost ready!
