Week 32

Marc finally felt the baby last night!! He had an extreme case of hiccups after I got home that lasted for about 30 minutes and Marc finally got to feel it! I'm glad he's finally able to experience what I have been for a few months now.

I'm in month 8, and there are only about 8 weeks left to go and so much to do. We finally found the nursery furniture that we want...what an ordeal that has been! So hopefully that will be here in a week or two and we can start putting the nursery together. I'll have to skedattle for a weekend while Marc paints, then the nursery is mine for the decorating! I can't wait. Right now everything is shoved in a closet.

As for me, nights are starting to get a bit restless. Maneuvering this belly is a little tougher than it seems and with his head resting on my bladder, the bathroom is my new best friend. We now sleep with two extra pillows that are supposed to keep me from sleeping on my back, but that doesn't always work. Marc makes sure to wake me up if he sees me sleeping on my back. I miss my ankles immensely but know that they will be back soon. I do love the nice glow that I have. I've only been out in the sun once, but I have more color this year than in previous years. All in all I would have to rate this as an excellent pregnancy. But I have to admit, I can't wait for it to be over...only because I want Ethan HERE!!!
