8 X 4 = 32

Yep I am 8 months pregnant, 32 weeks. All I can say is WOW! It is weird telling people I am 8 months pregnant. Everything is and has been going well. We finally took a tour of the hospital and registered for some childbirth classes. Now all we need is a name and to do the nursery.

Here I am either before or after yoga, not the best pic especially that shadow on the wall but you get the idea on how big my belly is. Believe it or not I don't have any stretch marks. Sure hope that doesn't change these last 8 weeks. I think I am up a total of 30lbs.

We had a 3D ultrasound earlier this week and it was pretty amazing to see! She did a few measurements to see how big he is and let's just say he is not going to be a small baby. Right now he is weighing almost 5lbs, coming in at 4lbs 14 oz. I knew he was big but not that big. She did a few bone measurements too and his femur is measuring at 35 weeks and I am 31 weeks today. He is head down already, sitting right on my bladder. I literally go to the restroom every hour and get up 4 times at night. We are very grateful to be in this situation no matter what size he is. The good thing is I get to see him again next week for a growth scan at my dr. office. I need to post another belly pic so you can see the size of this thing, it's huge! 2 people have asked me if I am having twins. Makes me so happy about our decision on only putting in 1 embryo, not that I don't think about that other embryo all the time!
Let me update a little about my weight gain, well, I have gained 25lbs already and counting. My OB thinks I will gain 40lbs. I don't feel like I eat any more, in fact I know I am eating less. It so hot in AZ that we don't make meals at night, we eat pretty light. Oh well, it will be a fun challenge getting back into shape before the next FET.

30 Weeks, Only 10 To Go!

Here we are at exactly 30 weeks! Only 10 more to go! I am currently sitting in the doctor's office doing my 3 hour glucose test. Yes, I failed the first one. I knew I would. It's not too bad, I brought my computer to help pass the time.
We are both super anxious to meet this little boy. No, we still don't have any names pick out nor have we even started on his room. We will start hopefully this weekend. I'm not too worried about it. I know it will all come together. I sure hope he doesn't decide to come early though.
We were home for 9 days, it was nice to see family. We have not been home in almost 2 years because we were dealing with infertility stuff. It was finally nice to see everyone. We had our family baby shower and I had some maternity pics taken. My husband's sister is an amazing photographer so I wanted her to take the pics, it may have been a little early but we really wanted her to take them.
I only have 1 shot to share right now, it was taken in South Dakota.
