update on the pregnant life... 32 weeks

This past weekend a sweet group of women from Westbury COC hosted a shower for me. It was so much fun! There were all kinds of sweet treats (which I had to very carefully nibble on for my gestational diabetic self), cute nursery rhyme decorations, lots of presents, and of course- great company! The last picture is me with the hostesses.

It was so much fun to get to visit with everyone and know that I'm still loved by them even if I'm not attending church with them every week. Westbury will always be an important part of my life! 

I'm now in my 32nd week of pregnancy... and I definitely feel a lot more pregnant. Between the numerous bathroom trips during the night, the huffing and puffing that come from just trying to get adjusted on the couch, the constant hunger, the stretching I feel all over my mid-section, and the just plain exhaustion.... yes... I definitely feel more pregnant! I read from an older OB that he'd never come across a woman who reached full term and longed for another month of pregnancy. Yup. I can completely understand that now! I'm still feeling very blessed to be pregnant though, so I want to be careful that I don't forget to be grateful through these more challenging weeks ahead! In case you haven't seen me in a while, here is what I'm looking like at 32 weeks! 

I feel like I have so much to do. I want to get things done early because you just never know when a little babe is ready to enter the world! (Plus I'm praying that she will want to come out a little early so that they won't induce me... which is very common when you have GD.) Right now my priorities are finding a pediatrician and getting her nursery ready. All of the major stuff is done, but I just have some organizing and washing to do. This week Blake and I have a Infant CPR class and newborn care class. This is starting to feel more real every day!!

That's all for now! :)
