7 weeks to go!

Today marks the 32 week mark. In just 7 short weeks we will meet this little man that is growing inside my womb. He is active and strong and growing at an alarming rate. Ok, so maybe not "alarming", but boy am I starting to feel it!

31 weeks on the left and 32 weeks on the right. Grow baby, grow!!

How am I feeling?:  I'm slowing down with each day and getting tired very easily. At times, my aches and pains are getting to be very difficult to handle. I caved last week and made an appointment with my chiropractor for some relief.  I'm the type of person that waits things out to see if my body will recover on it's own before seeking relief -- whether it be a small dose of Tylenol or a trip to the doc. This time, my body knew what it wanted and it wouldn't ease up until I gave in and sought out help. And thank gawd I did! My chiropractor worked her magic on my back and I instantly felt the tension disappear. Why the heck did I wait so long?? Stubbornness I guess.

Doctor Appointments: I passed the one hour glucose test last month. Yay!! At our last OB appointment, we were able to sneak a speak at this little dude. He has the most lucious lips!! I can not wait to meet this little one. We are down to appointments every two weeks now.

Weight gain: No comment.

Sleep: It's getting increasingly harder to get comfortable. Staying comfortable is another story. I'm constantly awakened while struggling to adjust positions or rescuing my arms and hands because they've fallen asleep and have become tingly. My belly feels very heavy and no sleep position is a good one at this point. Pillows are my best friends right now.

Mood: I'm tired. I'm crabby. I'm 8 months pregnant. Need I say more?

Exciting Moment: Getting to see Scoop unexpectedly in 3D during our last ultrasound. It's was pretty awesome. And he is simply beautiful.

A special visit with Peanut and his Daddies

Back in April I had the pleasure of spending a few days with my Peanut and his Daddies up in San Francisco. My friend Amy was able to join us too! Amy is very special to us - she attended Ari's birth and captured some of the most incredible moments. (check them out here and here!) We love you, Amy!!

Amy did a quick mini-session during our visit, too. Check them out below.

Our time with my Surro-Fam was short and sweet. I really enjoyed just being there and watching Ari interact with his Dads. It was nice to catch up with A & M too! It's been almost exactly one year since we've all seen each other, and that is way too long. I've made a promise with myself to see them more often.

Ari is so smart and such a beautiful little boy. He is very active too! I am looking forward to seeing them again very soon. Ari turns TWO this November, and I'm thinking that will be a great time for another visit.
