Baby Shower. 30 weeks & 3 days. πŸ’œ

24 Sep

It’s been like forever since my last post.
Hopefully I don’t forget anything!
But I’m sure I will.

First I wanna say thank you to those of you who nominated us for the “One Lovely Blog Award” I totally wrote a post for it in my phone & after I updated my phone that night it deleted. -_- So I’ll do my best to write another one soon. 😊

My wife started her blackwork sleeve/coverup.
& I must say I am IN LOVE with it.
So far she’s had a 10 hour session followed by a 6 hour session.
& there’s still a bit more to do.
She is a CRAZY person for sitting that long.
I could hardly even watch it. 😳
But it doesn’t seem to bug her.

I feel SUPER in love with her.
I am obsessive & organized and overthink everything.
It’s just getting worse the closer we get to our due date.
But she has a way of easing my nerves & making sure we get everything done so that I don’t freak out.
She’s so involved in every decision we make for our son & I love it.

Our baby shower was September 20th.
& I must say it was eveeeeerything we could ever want.
My mother & sister put so much time into it.
& it came out amazing.

Some of the highlights are:
Snow cone machine.
Blow up water slide for the kids.
Mini cheesecakes
Fruit trifle.
Whale shaped Rice Krispies.
Yummy food that our guest just seemed to LOVE. ☺️
Baby games
Domonique & I even did a surprise baby name reveal!

We were super overwhelmed by the amount of our friends & family who came to celebrate our baby boy!
There literally had to be about 100 people who showed up throughout the day. 😝
We are so blessed to have been able to share such a special day with so many of our loved ones!

The ONLY thing I am sad about it the amount of pictures taken.
It was so hectic that even Domonique & I didn’t get ONE picture together. 😒

We are going to go within the next few days and purchase everything we need for the baby that’s left on our list.
Which isn’t much with all of the things we have already purchased as well as the lovely gifts from our family & friends! ☺️

We also are going to complete the nursery.
& get our hospital bag ready.
It may be a bit early for the bag but I don’t feel right about not having EVERYTHING ready being so close to his due date.

I passed my glucose test. ☺️
I know a lot of people complain but it wasn’t too bad in my opinion.
We finally met with our midwife who is just the sweetest thing.

EVERYTHING has been absolutely amazing lately.
The baby is doing perfect. ☺️
He’s kicking and moving a ton.
My whole tummy rolls around when he’s shifting.
I have a feeling he’s a big boy being that he’s constantly hurting me when he moves around. lol.
Our next & possibly final ultrasound will be October 3rd.
They’re going to make sure he is head down.
We also have newborn & breast feeding classes soon.
As well as a hospital tour.

Some nights I wake up and my legs hurt really bad, & feel sort of tingly.
I’m still being told regularly that my bump is small for being 30 weeks.
I’ve gained 17 pounds. ☺️
& have two tiny spots on both sides of my lower belly that have what looks like the beginning of stretch marks.
I couldn’t care less.
As long as I have a healthy baby boy he can give me all the stretch marks he wants. ☺️
Also as of my 30 week mark exactly my wedding ring & I are gonna have to have a break.
My hands and feet like to swell up if I’m too active so it’s easier to just leave my ring off so I don’t have anymore panic attacks trying to get it off my swollen finger. lol.

I gave in & started using tums with the advice from our midwife.
It helped at first but it’s not doing anything for me anymore. πŸ˜”
For the past few days I can hardly eat because ANYTHING I eat gives me the WORSE indigestion ever.
It hurts sooooo bad.
I’ve had to learn to not eat at least an hour before bed.
Otherwise I spend most of the night choking and running to the bathroom trying not to throw up!

I have VERY little patience lately.
& my wife is dealing with that surprisingly well. ☺️
Thank goodness.

First session.

Second session.
