33 Weeks Today

Approximately 7 weeks left until we meet this little guy! I can't believe it's down to sinlge digits now...where has the time gone??  I keep trying to imagine what he will look like and who he will favor.  It's entirely possible that he'll be really white and blonde like his Mamma but I'm placing my bet on him having more of his Daddy's coloring.  The other thing I keep trying to imagine is his size...small, Med or LARGE?  For some reason I think he'll be in the small to Med range and I don't think thats just wishful thinking either!

Poor Jimmy's current home is covered in little red dots but the good news is although they are miserably itchy at times, especially in the heat, I think that just maybe it may be getting better.  I'm taking the dandelion root tincture faithfully, showering twice a day with Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap, using aloe vera and last night I took a Benadryl instead of using the Benadryl gel and I was actually able to get some sleep.  Woo hoo!

32 Weeks 5 Days

Things not to do when you are 8 months pregnant and have PUPPPs:

- Get braces put on -

Yeah, thats about it I think.  Wow!  It's been so long since I've had to have the wire adjusted on my upper teeth that I really forgot about the pain or the deep ache that comes with it.  We were waiting on the oral surgery I finally had last week to put the braces on my bottom teeth, so at my orthodontist appointment yesterday I got to have that done.  Part of me is really excited that we're finally moving forward on Project Straight Teeth for Faith and the other part of me is thinking why on earth did I think this was a good idea???  Hopefully my teeth will get used to the pulling and pushing and the ache will settle down and I can focus on the joys of pregnancy again.

32 Weeks 4 Days

My first official week of the 8th month! 

This pregnancy has just flown by and I've truly loved every minute and don't even feel remotely ready for Jimmy to be here yet.  I spent some of the weekend working on his room and it still doesn't look like I did anything!  We had taken some stuff down out of the attic from when Mercedes was a baby and I did manage to get that scrubbed down and ready for him but thats about it.
