BUMPDATE | 32 weeks pregnant

Eight weeks. Two months. That's all that stand between me and meeting Little One face-to-face. I need a moment or twenty to really let that sink in... Nope, still not sinking in. I'm pretty sure they're going to hand me my little bundle of newborn perfection and I'm going to be like "wait, so you really are real? Because I was sure that I was imagining the whole thing.". And then that baby is going to know that they were born to a weird, spastic Mommy. Although I do try to explain that fact to him/her already. They should know what they're getting into with their weirdo parents. It's only fair.

So, let's see... what is new this week? I had my first miserable day. It wasn't pain or heat or anything else that I was expecting. Oh no. That would have been too easy. I woke up at 3:30am on Monday morning and had to seriously question whether or not I'd been out drinking the night before. The room was spinning and I hadn't even lifted my head off of the pillow yet. When I did move my head, I was so lightheaded that I wondered if I'd pass out. This lasted until roughly 10:30am. The room spinning would come and go, but the lightheaded feeling was constant and I got so dizzy that I wasn't able to hold down food.

Of course, I did everything that my doctor and the internet said to do - stayed cool. Ate (until my stomach rejected it, of course) and drank plenty of water. Laid on my side to make sure my blood was flowing properly. And I had no other symptoms. So all I could do was wait until it either got worse (in which case I would have called the doctor) or went away. Thankfully, it was the latter and I didn't have to go get checked out. It hasn't happened since and I have been feeling perfect ever since. Lord, please let that not happen again. I'll take back pain or hot flashes over that any day of the week.

Aside from that, the week has been good. Invitations for the baby shower have been sent out and it's less than two weeks away. I'm excited to fill Little One's room with gifts from the people who love him/her! And to finally go shopping for whatever else we still need.

I have my next doctor's appointment on Wednesday and I am pretty sure that I will have them every two weeks from here on out. Adam is still desperately hoping that we'll have one more ultrasound, but I'm not so sure that will happen. That would be the one downside to having a perfectly healthy pregnancy - though I'd much rather less ultrasounds and a healthy pregnancy. But I understand where he's coming from. I'd love to see Baby again, but I at least get to feel Baby all day long. I get to sit and watch kicks and play with them and feel flips and wiggles. He doesn't get that same experience. Maybe we'll get the chance for one more. If not, our wait is only eight weeks until we can see him/her every single day!

    1. Thank you so much and congratulations to you as well! We don't know what we're having. We decided (and by that, I mean I decided and my husband is begrudgingly going along with it) to let it be a surprise! :)

    2. Oh my gosh, I would love to do that, but I am so impatient, I don't think I'd be able to get through it! So exciting that you're getting so close to the end. Do you have names picked out?

    3. I have just always pictured it as being a surprise, so it's been pretty easy for me! Yes, we have names picked out. We're totally set on our girl name, but we're a little on the fence about boy names. We have two picked out & one that we're leaning towards a little more, so we'll see!

    1. Thank you! It's funny, in all of my life, this is the only time that I've ever been excited about having more doctor's appointments. I normally HATE going to the doctor. But more appointments means hearing Baby's heartbeat and it means I'm closer to my due date, so bring on all of the appointments!
