BAD week...

OMG....this week has sucked big time. Not pregnancy wise- that is going fine. Just life wise.
Hubs and I had a shitty weekend, lots of bickering and nothing "fun" for just the two of us to do (family weddings out of town don't count as "fun" anymore since we have been to a zillion!). Ok, the week is looking good on Monday, we are nice to each other and have plans to go out to dinner on Tuesday together. Then, on Monday our neighbour found a bed bug (or got bit or something). Toronto is on FREAK OUT MODE over bed bugs these days....everyone is paranoid! So, we freaked that we might have bed bugs! Tore apart our whole bed room. Got contacted by our property manager that a pest control guy would be coming in on Wednesday to inspect/treat for bed bugs. I'm relieved that someone is coming but the prep is HORRIBLE! We had to wash and dry EVERYTHING in our entire condo that can be laundered. Clothes, towels, sheets, pillows, blankets....let me tell you ...that is A LOT of stuff! We had to wash and the bag and seal it all by Wednesday morning. Stuff that can't be "washed" needed to be tossed in the dryer for 20 minutes on high heat and then bagged and sealed. Anything we didn't have time to get to had to be bagged and sealed and then immediately washed after the treatment. So, we spent all night monday and tuesday doing laundry...we have 50 huge sealed garbage bags on our kitchen table, counter and bath tub now. We only washed 30 of those bags and the rest remain to be washed. We also cleaned out our bedside tables and since my husband is hyper paranoid we through them away as well. We also through away our pillows.
So, yesterday the bed bug guy came and found NO SIGN of any bugs or eggs. But just to be safe he treated anyways. This is a big relief, but I also kind of feel like we did all this for nothing!

Another huge pain in the ass is that our pup cosmo was not allowed in the house as he treated so we had to send him to a doggie day care for the day and pregnant ladies can't sleep in the pesticide house for 24 hours. So, I had to get a hotel alone last night. Hubs had to stay with the dog, and to top it all off he had to leave for Calgary for a work trip today at 5am!

Our good week...turned to the worst/busiest/ most annoying week ever! Last night I had to scavenge through a bunch of bags to try to find something to wear to work today (to bring to the hotel with me last night).Annoying! And now today after work and the gym I will head home to tackle the 30 more bags of laundry....alone. Kill me now!

Hubs comes home on Friday night really late and then we are hosting a halloween party on saturday...should be fun but busy and at this point I wish we weren't having the party at all so we could just relax!

Anyways, that's my bitching for the day. On the bright side...thank goodness this happened now and not 7 weeks from now when the baby is here!

Cheers to no bed bugs!!!!

33 Weeks

How Far Along? 33 weeks!

Maternity Clothes? Tights, boots and long shirts/sweaters. Way cooler than maternity clothes (or atleast the lame ones I find at the TWO maternity stores here...pathetic!)

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! Hoping its genetic(my mom did NOT get them with all 4 kids!)

Sleep? No heartburn at night in a week and a half....Zantac is a life saver. Plus I sleep pretty much sitting up, and don't eat at night. This all sucks, but let me tell you...the heartburn sucks more!

Best Moment of the Week? Putting together our stroller! We have the Uppababy Vista and we fully assembled it on Saturday. I got a lump in my throat when I saw it all ready for baby! This is really happening...i'm excited but soooooo scared!

Movement? A ton of hiccups. Which actually get annoying and make me feel like I have hiccups! Poor little baby. I hate hiccups! Lots of rolling and jabbing me in the ribs etc.

Food Cravings? Oh Henry!!! Thank goodness there's less than a week left until all of the halloween candy stops being for sale!

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? Nothing right now!

What I'm looking forward to? Nursery furniture delivery! We had to postpone it from last Sunday (boooo....) but it is now coming on Saturday! woo hoo! I'm also excited to find a cute halloween costume for my party this week! Any ideas?

Weekly Wisdom: Pregnancy is no reason not to dance up a storm at a wedding! I had a ton of fun dancing (in heels!!!) at the wedding we went to this weekend! I just stayed out of the "mosh pit" and had so much fun. Almost forgot I was preggo!

Milestones: Started the countdown to due date in DAYS....only 47 days to go!

Emotions: Feeling pretty good. But hubs and I have been fighting a lot...I think we are both anxious and short tempered these days (not sure what his excuse is..but i'm 33 weeks pregnant!! Ha ha!)

Here are some progress pics from the past few weeks:

31 weeks (getting ready for work)

32 weeks (hope you don't mind the undies!)

33 weeks at a wedding

Wedding again...

Me and the hubs at the wedding

So that's me at week 33!

32 weeks and 3 days

How Far Along? 32 Weeks and 3 days!!! Oh my!

Maternity Clothes? I hate most maternity clothes. I think it is clear I'm not going to even go there (aside from the few items I currently have). Loving the tights, boots and long sweaters look!

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! Hoping its genetic(my mom did NOT get them with all 4 kids!)

Sleep? Trying Zantac again to help with the heartburn at night. Slept like a rock last night. Up once a night too pee...not too bad!

Best Moment of the Week? Buying our crib and getting our bedding in the mail!!! Crib, dresser and glider are all being delivered on Sunday! Then we can set up the nursery!

Movement? A ton.

Food Cravings? Oh Henry!!!

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? sleeping without heartburn! and I'm starting to freak about not making "my own" money when I'm on mat leave. Hubs and I don't have joint accounts. We both make good money and we both contribute to our mortgage and bills, but mostly he pays for more stuff than me (as he should since he makes triple me!) so my money is mostly just my money to do what I please with. Well, when I don't have any incoming cash flow I will need to totally depend on (and be accountable to!) my husband. I'm just not comfortable with this. I like taking care of myself! So.... I miss not being worried about money!

What I'm looking forward to? Nursery furniture delivery! And my halloween party next weekend and my shower after that!

Weekly Wisdom: nada

Milestones: 32 weeks seems like a milestone in itself!

Emotions: Feeling great right now! I'm more tired and thus more cranky...sorry hubby! but when I get exercising or get moving I always feel better and more happy. So that's another reason on my list to not be lazy and keep biking and working out.

My OB appt went really well yesterday. Gained 3 pounds in the last 3 weeks, growing well, heartbeat good, blood pressure low...yeah! Back in 2 weeks.

One thing that I did notice though, when they were measuring me the nurse told the doctor I was measuring 30 weeks, but I am 32 weeks. He didnt' mention it at all or make an issue at all and said everything seemed "perfect". So, I guess I am just wondering if it is normal to be measuring a couple of weeks small? Or should I be worried?

anyways, hope you all have a lovely week! The weather here is still gorgeous and 15 degrees celcius! woo hoo for mild temps! Hopefully we don't see snow for another couple of months (or preferably not at all!)

Hello, hello bloggies! So happy that today is sad that I have to supervise a school dance from 8-12am tonight. Fun, fun, fun! But what I really want to "complain" about is that I'm getting slow. At 31 weeks and 5 days I'm fading. Not faded out, but fading. I'm finding my bike ride to work more tiring. Hard to get my breath. This week I have had to stop on part of a hill and walk it for a few minutes. Not a big deal, but I'm feeling this now. Going up the stairs, I get winded. Need a break before continuing on! It's weird though b/c I can still kick ass on a 40min cardio session at the gym...I take a lot of breaks but still getting it in! I can't believe that I'm 5 weeks and 2 days away from being full term...I guess I'm lucky that I'm only fading out now.

Another development, or more of a development is the major discharge I've been having the past couple of weeks! Lots of people have talked about discharge, I never noticed it until about 32 weeks. Now I feel like i'm gushing all of the time! I've even charged to the bathroom a few times, worried that its blood! Crazy!

And finally...colostrum. sooooo freaky weird! If I squeeze my boob (don't ask me why i'm squeezing my boobs...?) clear/yellow fluid comes out. It is sometimes crusted on there like dried snot when I take off my bra. Gross. But cool.

So, ya....that's me at 31 weeks 5 day!

Have a good weekend!

31 Weeks

How Far Along? 31 Weeks!!! Only 6 weeks to full term...WTF!!!!

Maternity Clothes? Some. Some regular stretchy stuff. Regular shirts are definitely getting too short!

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! Hoping its genetic(my mom did NOT get them with all 4 kids!)

Sleep? No eating before bed seems to help the heartburn. I screwed up and ate Tostitos before bed last night...had a TERRIBLE sleep with lots of heartburn!

Best Moment of the Week? Thanksgiving dinners with the families! My sisters feeling the baby's feet sticking out of my side!

Movement? Awesome and lots. Sometimes the kicks take my breath away or make me very uncomfortable for a few moments. I think I'm getting braxton hicks too. I suddenly get VERY tight and sore, but it goes away.

Food Cravings? nothing really.

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? sleeping without heartburn!

What I'm looking forward to? Getting our nursery furniture soon! And setting up and decorating!

Weekly Wisdom: ?.

Milestones: ?

Emotions: Feeling good right now! But I am definitely tiring quicker and feeling less enthusiastic about doing "stuff" (ie. cleaning...walking the dog...)

Totally boring post and I promise to get pics soon! I've been super lazy! Sorry friends!

Yeah for a 4 day week!!

30 weeks!!! OMG!

How Far Along? 30 weeks and 2 days!!! is the final countdown! Hopefully I will never have to count past the 30's (40 exactly is ok...but thanks! Come on out by then baby girl!)

Maternity Clothes? Some. Some regular stretchy stuff.

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! Hoping its genetic(my mom did NOT get them with all 4 kids!)

Sleep? No eating before bed seems to help the heartburn. I'm waking up with a really sore low back most days!

Best Moment of the Week? hitting 30 weeks! ordering the bedding! (now we just need the crib to put the bedding in!)

Movement? Crazy awesome movement! Had a freak out on Saturday...hubs has 2 friends who announced they were 3 months pregnant (without even "trying") and then in my random retarded jealousy and fear struck and I started panicking that I couldn't feel the baby move anymore and that they were all going to have perfect babies and i was going to have a still born. I over-reacted. She gave me a good kick session Saturday night! Phew! I hate that I am still so utterly jealous when I hear of people in real life being pregnant...I am still not confident in this pregnancy even though I'm so far along! oh...and i'm jealous of people who are pregnant with number 2...i may never get that chance. Geez...why am i'm worried about #2 when I don't even have #1 in my arms yet! I get so sad and frustrated at myself!

Food Cravings? Chocolate is soooo good, yet soooo bad (for my heartburn!!!)

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? sleeping without heartburn!

What I'm looking forward to? Thanksgiving weekend this week! Yeah! I'm excited to show my sisters some of the baby's crazy movements and to just be with my family! I'm also getting excited to buy our crib and get the nursery fully set up!

Weekly Wisdom: Not much.

Milestones: 30 weeks!

Emotions: Feeling good right now! But I can still get pretty irritated pretty quick!

Will get hubs to take some belly pics and put them up later!

Ciao for now!

I pulled the trigger! I ordered our baby bedding online! I can't wait to get it in the mail(hoping i don't have to pay a shit load of duty on it since its from a US store!). We painted the nursery (ok, i did nothing...hubs did it all!) a pale yellow this weekend and it looks awesome! So today I ordered this 9 piece bedding set (not sure what all is included or what all I will actually use):

We are obviously having a bumblebee theme and I think its so cute! I didn't want anything too girly in case we are blessed with a second child and its a boy! All about re-using!

What do you guys think?

I'll give an official pic of our nursery when we get the crib and put the bedding in it!
