34 weeks!

We're getting so close to the end! I can't wait to meet this little baby and see who is in there. :) I'm getting so big and uncomfortable, but finally starting to feel better with my sickness. Still having low blood pressure, and low energy. But the low energy is to be expected in my third trimester.

Andy and I went to our birth class at Andaluz on Saturday. Our primary midwife, Megan, led it. It was really great and helpful for getting into birthing mode! I've been so busy that I haven't had as much time to prepare like I did especially for Ruby's birth. But I think I'm finally ready now. I'm really looking forward to the birth, it is such a cool time for Andy and I to connect, and such a cool experience as well. 

I am a little nervous about how logistics are going to work with the kids and everything, as well as laboring in the car. But I'm sure it will all be great. We have a great birth team, and we're all ready to have a big party in there like we usually do! I think there are about 10 people who will be there, counting Andy and I, Patty and the kids, my mom, Cassie for taking photos, and three midwives. So we need one of the larger birthing rooms for sure!

I also went in for my 34 week appointment on Monday. Everything is looking really good. My diastasis makes it really cool for the midwives to feel the baby, and they all wanted a turn! Haha It is so fun to feel it in there wiggling around all the time.

Changes this week: Getting bigger and more uncomfortable by the day! But otherwise feeling okay. My hips hurt most nights.

Cravings this week: I'm getting a little tired of the Whole30, and Ruby and I are both craving some kind of dessert. :) It doesn't help that we've been watching the Great British Baking Show.
