30 something days left

I like having information. Information makes me feel more prepared for what is to come. So - I have been reading a lot since I became pregnant. However, there are several things that I knew were coming but just wasn't prepared for.
1. Heartburn - I've never had heartburn before so I didn't know what to expect. I hate Tums, so I just drink water.
2. Lack of sleep - I know that this is just the beginning. Getting up to pee doesn't bother me - it's the fact that I had no idea my hips would hurt from sleeping on my side or that rolling over is such a chore. Thank goodness for Snoogles!
3. I did not expect to forget what my body use to look like. It seems like it was forever ago that I could look straight down at my feet.
This picture was taken of me last week at around 33 1/2 weeks. I had a doctor's appointment this week and everything looks good. In two weeks I will have my last ultrasound and will switch to injecting Heparin instead of Lovenox. It is absolutely surreal that our little munchkin could be here anytime.
People have been ridiculously generous. Friends have let me borrow maternity clothes, bouncers, swings and so much more. I have a closet full of clothes (although oddly - no pants, but that will be an easy fix), blankets galore, a car seat, cradle, a diaper bag and so much more! I am going to finish buying some things this weekend and then hopefully will be ready for this guy (still no name) to show up!
I also am inspired by all of you that are doing spring cleaning! I keep hoping for some energy so I can join you! I made myself a long list of things I would like to accomplish this weekend and hopefully will get most of them done!

I think you look fabulous too! Your little boy will be here before you know it, then the time will fly!

Oh, the days of hurting hips and heartburn. Looks and sounds like things are progressing nicely. Good luck on the name's not easy.
