8th Month Mark!

Today marks my 32 week and the beginning of my 8th month. I only have 5 more weeks until I reach the full term mark. Then Mr. Liam could come at anytime and be healthy! 5 weeks seems so close to be FULL TERM! I'm ready for it though. I can honestly feel my body getting more and more uncomfortable. I can definitely tell that this extra 23 lbs is taking it's toll one me. Symptoms are still the same just more intensified. I get tired just moving around which is not fun for me because I always like to do projects and clean. The breathing is getting harder and sleeping you can forget a full nights sleep. I woke up at least 5 times last night. The indigestion and heart burn is rough and I'm starting to wonder if this will ever end :). I know it's only going to get worse too. Hopefully if I gain a lb a week I'll be right at 30 lbs. That is if he takes 8 full more weeks. I really want to meet him. He is still actively rolling and moving from one side to the other. The kicks are slowly starting to dissipate but he definitely likes to roll and move. His hiccups happen about twice a day still and I can really tell he likes music and our pastor Rob's voice. He constantly moves when he hears either.

Next week we go in for a normal OB appointment, and we are also taking the tour of the labor unit. Then our next appointment will be his final ultrasound. This is the appointment I'm anxious for. We will see how big he is, what she thinks will be the best route for delivery will be, and if I've dilated any. Richard and are just anxious to see him one last time on the ultrasound :). He'll be so big.

I finished up the nursery as much as I had hoped. My showers are in a few weeks and I'm going to wait and see what I get there before I try and finish up a few last things in his room. But I feel prepared in that sense.

That's my update. Everything seems to be going as planned. I have truly been blessed in my pregnancy. Everything has gone smoothly and hopefully it will continue to do so. I'm just praying these last 7 or so weeks will go by quickly. My body might not be able to stand much more :)! I want to meet him too!
