Almost 35 week update

So since I wasn’t 35 weeks at my beck up yesterday it was pretty routine-no chekcs or anything-which was ok by me except I haveto two two more before I go back and that makes me a little nervous! I will be 2 days shy of 37 weeks then and I was admitted 1 day shy of 37 weeks with Charlotte! I know the pregnancies aren’t the same but 37 weeks makes me a little wary. 
Baby sisters room is basically ready. I’m

33 week update

Here I am at 32 weeks—sorry for the closet—we are are having the bathroom tile redone and so everything is shoved in the closet. 

Nothing too new to report from my 33 week check up. My iron was a touch low so I’m working on incorporating it into my diet better—more steak please!! Baby sister has turned and is head down and has dropped (a lot more after this picture). If you haven’t guessed, that makes me pretty uncomfortable, but I’m handling it. 
I’m not swelling yet which is great but I am already at the weight I was at when I delivered Charlotte. I know I’m supposed to gain but I don’t like to see numbers in the scale go that high. I know I can get it off later so I’m trying to enjoy these last weeks of eating and not worrying. 
I did have to go to I to the doctors office at 32 weeks for a quick ultrasound because I wasn’t feeling baby sister. Turns out that was when she turned and was no longer sideways so I was just feeling her differently. We saw her practice breathing and sucking her little thumb. She was hiding her face and Charlotte was saying “move that arm!” It was adorable. She was weighing in at 4 pounds which is more than Charlotte was at that point. She actually was small at my 33 week so it was a relief that baby sister was right on track. I feel like she might not stay in for the whole term and am getting a little nervous. I didn’t have to go into labor with Charlotte and I’m afraid my water will break somewhere embarrassing!! I have an induction scheduled for March 22, which is 39 weeks, and I hope I can make it that long!! I am sort of already feeling like a ticking time bomb!!! 
The best thing lately has been my baby sprinkle! We had dinner with some of my best girlfriends and had cupcakes and presents in honor of baby sister! The girls even tried to help me name her but we still haven’t decided. We have it narrowed to two, so that is at least progress!! 

Keep praying for baby sister to grow big and strong and to stay put a little longer!! 

January 2018

There was more sickness in our house in January that took Charlotte out for around a week, but despite all that we missed we had a fun yet freezing month together. 

We spent New Year’s Day getting baby sisters room together! It felt so good to see a little progress and start getting things in order for her. 

Charlotte went back to school potty trained!! She was so proud of herself and couldn’t wait to show her teachers her panties!! 

I turned 34! Gosh that sounds and old and kind of burning! Although I know there will be nothing morning about this year! Some sweet girlfriends took me out to celebrate. 

And then forrest and the Hayes took me out on the big day as well! We have the best meal at bottega! I have just a few more weeks to pregnancy eat so I definitely have been taking advantage. 

Alabama won the national championship in stressful fashion.  Forrest kept worrying my blood pressure would get too high or I would go into labor but baby sister and I maintained. It was a crazy game, one I would rather never relive, but we are thrilled to be national champions. All seems right with the world when Bama is on top!
Later that week forrest and I flew to aspen for our babymoon. Holy cow. What an amazing trip. The scenery was breathtaking, the food delicious, the spa magnificent, forrest says the skiing was awesome, and of course the company was the best. It was so nice for the two of us to get some one on one time doing things that we love together. We missed our sweet girl like crazy though, so much so  that we picked her up at 10pm, and we will even forgive her for crying when she told her she had to leave momsie. 

The spa at the st Regis. My home for two days!

I got to Sabre a champagne bottle! Who knew I was so skilled?! 

Having fun around snowmass

Just me and my love

We also hosted supper club this month. I was definitely not feeling up to coooing or having something at my house so we decided to take our group to the new top golf in Birmingham! It was a fab time!! 

Charlotte got a weird virus the next weekend that put us out of commission for the rest of the month, but after such a busy month it was nice to stay home and relax a little!
