We had our 2 week appointment on Friday. We go back in 2 weeks and then it will be every week. WOW! I can't believe we are that close to the end! The appointment went really and she said things were looking really good. She did tell me that I need to be drinking more water - to the tune of 5 bottles a day! That's a lot of water! I've already been drinking 2 1/2 to 3 and have to go to the bathroom just about once an hour. I can only imagine how frequently I'll need to go if I drink 5 bottles. I'm not sure I'd make it through a flight if I do that. So, I'm going to drink as much as I can while I'm on the ground and limit my intake a little before flights. I think I had about 4 to 4 1/2 bottles on Friday and I had to go all.the.time! She also told me that I should probably fit in another meal during the day, possibly even 2. I've still been eating about the same portion size for meals, but my snacks in between have gotten a little bigger. I'll have to make sure and start packing 2 lunches I guess, lol!
There's not much else to report on. We've just been doing our normal day to day stuff - work, sleep, & eat. I do have to go in the nursery and just look at it at least once a day, lol. I absolutely love the way it turned out and it is definitely my favorite room in the house!
Here's my mid-week/ 33 1/2 week photo:
We've had a busy weekend - our Sunday school class went on an overnight trip Friday evening through Saturday afternoon - so I'm going to keep this post short. I do have pictures to post from my showers and also this past weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to get those posts done in the next couple of days. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there!
