32 weeks and counting...

So today I am officially 32 weeks pregnant! YAY! That means that I only have 8 more weeks to go (at most) and probably have less than that! This week has been very busy as I have been working on furniture, doing paperwork for the business Mitch and I are starting, going to the doctors and trying to stay on top of the house work. (that last one really hasn't been accomplished at all, but I was trying) :).

Yesterday I went to the doctor's and they did another sonogram. Brooke looks great, we were able to see each of her organs and they are all the right size and place! We also got to see her lungs moving, telling us that she's practicing her breathing and her heart looked as strong as ever. Also the technician told us that her spine looked perfect, which is great to hear! She is 3 lbs and 14 ounces, which means that she's gained 1 lb and 3 ounces in 3 weeks. She's technically a little low in the weight percentiles but still within the acceptable range so they're not concerned. (Less to push out right? lol)

Then I had my follow up with Paula. She said she was very happy with the baby's progress and growth and that I can start driving if I want to, but only short distances and only as long as I don't have any pain while behind the wheel. (Apparently there are some women who driving induces labor?!?!) Anyway, overall everything is good and we are hoping to have Brooke's room done in the next few days.


  1. A) We need pictures ASAP of Brooke's room once it is finished because I am sure it is adorable....

    B) what business are you all starting?

    C) I am glad you have a little more independence and can get out of the house!

  2. A. lol. As soon as its done there will be massive amounts of pics! haha.

    B. We are thinking about opening a store to sell collegic merchandise in one of the malls. So we're working out the costs involved in that right now and that falls mostly to me because he's still at work 60 hours a week with 10 hours a week in drive time.

    C. Thanks!
