Happy Halloween. My belly still doesn’t quite look like a standard pregnant belly. Alas, it is what it is. I can definitely feel him move and that is fun.
Lately, I have been going through a stage. My boss calls this “Getting in Tune with my baby”. I have been waking up at about 4:30 am and not being able to get back to sleep to closer to 5:30 or later. This lack of sleep is effecting my work day, and training my replacement. I’m not a good teacher/talker, and have been doing that nonstop for almost two weeks now. Also in my sleep, I have been a snore talker, according to Deb, mumbling in my sleep while snoring lightly, sometimes coming out with full words which also wakes her up thinking I’m talking to her.
I am now 31 Weeks and one day (or 31 weeks on Friday per the ultrasound people, but OB sticks to a January 1 due date.) I am in the single digit countdowns and Deb is convinced little one will come early. For my sister, at least one, if not two, came late, so I’m not counting on early. I’m ok with that though. Deb is just anxious to meet the bean.
The breast pump debate in my head is still continuing. We have found one that is about $160 but it seems replacement parts aren’t readily available. So if I need bigger breast shields to accommodate larger nipples than most I don’t know if it would be a possibility. This then puts the debate on should we get the Medela. Babies R Us is having a midnight madness sale this Friday having the hands free one on sale for $380, from $450. I have a feeling we are just going to bite the bullet and get the Medela.
Not a lot of change. Very gradual I guess.
