What can I say this week? I’m tired, that’s the biggest thing. I don’t know how I drag my ass out of bed every morning to go to work, the gym, etc. I’m starting to feel like a zombie. I know, I know, it’s not going to go away any time soon. One can hope though, right?

I ordered myself a new gym bag diaper bag. Ok, so it’s from Lululemon, but I really like their bags. They’re super durable, lots of pockets and they don’t look lame. I haven’t decided if I will transfer my old gym bag to be the diaper bag, or use the new one as a diaper bag, but either way I’m pretty excited. There’s still lots of things I need before the baby comes. Like the crib, which I still don’t know where it’s coming from or if it’s going to be one I like (aka matches the rest of the furniture color). Then there’s the crib bedding and bumper pads. Why the heck is crib bedding so damn expensive?? I also need nursing things, bras, tanks, pump, bottles, etc. And I need to look for a good baby book. The Fitnessista ordered one for Oliva that I’ve been toying with getting as well, even though it’s fairly pricey. But I want a good one, with pockets for keepsakes and spots to write things, not just a baby photo album. Anyone know where to get a good one?

I’m getting anxious to be done work. It’s been super slow for me which isn’t very much fun, especially when all I want to do is nap. I also want to be done so I can spend time cleaning and organizing. I guess this means the nesting phase has officially struck?

How far along? 35 weeks.
How big is baby? A small honeydew melon
Weight gain? 32 pounds as of last week. Won’t know again until I go to the doctor next week. I really hate stepping on the scale…
Gender? After 4 ultrasounds it’s still a boy. The tech pointed out the bits, but I couldn’t really make it out.
Symptoms: I’m tired, so damn tired.
Sleep? The worst. I have a hard time getting comfortable and falling asleep. Then I wake up about once an hour. Add on top of that having to pee or getting hungry at stupid hours, sleep just isn’t happening. I really wish I could take several naps a day but work kind of gets in the way of that. Thank god I’m almost done!
Food Cravings: Pizza and chocolate. I don’t really see these cravings as unusual though.
Movement: As I said already, I’m pretty sure he’s going to be a UFC fighter or a boxer the way he punches and kicks.
Belly Button: I’m pretty sure it’s just a full on outie now.
What I’m looking forward too: Being done work soon.

    love the pic and another good thing after you have the baby, is that you will again be able to see you toes without bending over, just a little thing, but its a good feeling.

    Don’t blame you for being tired, I’M tired and I’m not carrying a child 😉 😉 Lululemon as a diaper bag sounds like a great idea. They have such cute bags!!

    I got Zoey’s babybook at chapters I think… Try there!

    I also would suggest holding off on bumper pads. There is such a small window when they can actually be used (when they are young you can’t use them because they could roll into them and suffocate; and then when they are around 8 months and older they are a choking hazard due to the strings) that I have found that they aren’t worth it. They are adorable, but after the fact I regret getting them.

    I love the picture!

    I think a Lululemon bag would work perfectly for a diaper bag. It’s meant to carry sweaty and dirty workout stuff, so poopy diapers are similar right? 😉 Can’t wait to see the rest of your pictures! 🙂
