I am in the beginning of my 34th week of pregnancy and I can't believe I am already this far along. So far things have been going (relatively) okay. I have hit the very uncomfortable stage of pregnancy and at times I'm finding this is messing with my emotions. I just about lost it the other day when my mother asked me how I was feeling and poor Josh is often a victim of not my tears but my bad attitude. I hate that how I feel affects my attitude, especially to Josh. He has been nothing but patient, considerate, and very helpful the entire pregnancy. Thank you Josh for being so supportive and I'm sorry I've been such a grouchy pants lately.
We've been going to the doctor every two weeks. Our next appointment is next Tuesday (June 9 – our two year anniversary), after this appointment we will schedule a sonogram to make sure everything looks okay and to get an idea of how much the baby weighs. I'm really anxious for this appointment because Josh thinks we're going to have a big baby. I'm trying not to worry about the baby's weight; I just want the baby to be healthy. I've been concerned with how much weight I've gained. I've asked the doctors and he said I'm textbook perfect and measuring exactly where I need to be.
We haven't settled on a name yet. We have two names that we both really like but I think we're waiting for another name to miraculously pop into our heads. Naming your baby is a tough job. Lots of factors to consider: we both need to love the name, it needs to go well with Glupker, and the meaning of the name is important to us. At least it became important to us when we thought we liked the named Flynn and discovered its meaning is "heir to the redheaded man". I'm pretty sure we will not be naming the baby before he is born but we'd like to go into the delivery room with at least three names we love.
Current Cravings: I love love love anything that is cold right now. Cold fruit, crunching on ice (I know this is bad for your teeth), and especially ice cream. I'm also craving things I can't have like sweet ice tea (Josh has me on a strict no caffeine diet) and turkey deli meat. I want a turkey sub from Wegman's or a sierra turkey sandwich from Panera so bad. I have been making a lot of strombolis for Josh and I. I'm sure there are other things that I am craving. If I see it, I usually want it.
This weekend my family is coming up from Ohio to work on the nursery. We ordered the crib and dresser from a store in Ohio and they would not deliver to PA. My parents are bringing that up and we have lots to do to get the nursery and our townhouse baby ready. I'm really looking forward to this weekend.
Other than posting a belly pic (sorry Brittany) I think that's about all that is going on with my pregnancy. I'm in the home stretch now and we are getting really excited to meet our son!
