31 Weeks!

31 Weeks!

I'm 31 weeks!  Woohoo!

Less than 10 weeks until my due date (and until Christmas!)
We have a Dr appt this week (with our new Dr!) and we also have our last Hypnobabies class, which I'm sad about!  But we'll still get to see our awesome instructor, Sheridan, because she's our doula, so that's great!  Also, we'll be practicing our hypnobabies scripts, exercises, etc until our baby is born as well!

Our baby girl is moving more, though the movements have changed-now instead of quick kicks, I'm feeling much more wiggling.  And it's clear that there's less space in there because sometimes a body part (foot, arm, leg, or even her whole back) will be pressed up against the outside an pushes my stomach out!  It's really fun to watch my stomach move-you can really see it undulating from the outside!

30 Weeks!

30 Weeks!

Lots of big things happened this week!
On Saturday, October 17th, we drove up to Santa Barbara for a baby shower that my mom threw for us!  We had a lot of fun and it was great seeing everyone!  Everyone was so sweet and gave us several things from our registry, as well as lots of adorable outfits!!!

You can see more photos of our shower here:

The other big thing that happened is that I finally took the leap and switched Drs and hospitals. I just really felt like my Dr didn't believe in me and my ability to have a natural birth!  We have our first appt with the new Dr on Wednesday, so wish us luck!

Until next week!

29 Weeks

29 Weeks!!

Well, we've begun the home stretch-the 3rd trimester!  I can't believe it!  I'm looking bigger than ever-it's even more visible because I still haven't posted my photo from last week (I have to find it on Lex's computer because I forgot to download it from the camera!)
We'll have our 4th Hypnobabies class this week!  We will be talking with our instructor about having her as our doula-we've been thinking about it, but after last week's class in all the options, pros/cons of each option, etc,  I think Lex and I realized that it could really be helpful, especially since this is our first birth!
Baby girl is kicking and moving around like a champ now and I can really feel her!  If you watch my belly, you can actually see her moving around!  It's pretty cool!
Until next week!
