Week 31 slipped by without much incident. I have been doing a lot of research on breastfeeding, returning to work and more. It is a lot to process through; but I know that I will feel better prepared and less overwhelmed in the coming weeks if I process through everything now.
The one highlight of Week 31 was: Receiving a text from Ben telling me he just purchased clothing for Madden.
Week 32 started off with talking to my best friend. We haven't seen each other in so long; and it is weird for me to be very pregnant without her here. The entire conversation was the perfect start to my week. Especially, since Braxton Hicks contractions have begun in full swing. Listening to Ben talk to Madden. He has been doing this along, but as we get closer, his conversations start with "Hi Son, it's your Dad." and end with "Love you." These are the moments I want to remember for ever.
The past two weeks have made me so thankful. Here is an update on my pregnancy thankfulness:
Social Media: Twitter and Facebook have become incredible and highly valuable resources for me as I prepare for this baby.
My best friend Stephanie. During our conversation, she told me she felt a special connection/attachment to my baby. I loved hearing that.
Milk. It is the best thing EVER. I have seriously gone through 2 gallons in the last 2.5 weeks. This is an incredible feat; but more than that I CAN'T GET ENOUGH.
Nesting has arrived full force. It is nice to have some energy and FEEL like cleaning everything I encounter.
The countdown to this baby's arrival is now to SINGLE DIGITS. That is so crazy to both Ben and I...But we are SO ready.
