Preparing for Ant

I can't believe I will be 32 weeks tomorrow, it is amazing how fast this pregnancy has flown by. Over the winter break DH and I finally got started painting Ant's room. We still have a lot of work to do to get ready but we are officially on our way.

Over the next 2 weeks we need to finish as much as possible. My MIL has offered to come and spend the last month of my pregnancy with us and she is going to help us out during the month of March. I am so grateful that she is coming because I am already overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. We need to have his room some what ready because that is also our guest bedroom.

This week starts a marathon of classes preparing us for Ant. I have heard many people say birthing classes is a waste of time but I am of the mind set that it is better to know what is coming or at least have some idea of what is happening. We are also register to take infant care and CPR. DH lucked out that he was busy during the breastfeeding class, so he doesn't have to go with me. Also, he isn't the one that is going to be breastfeeding.

As for the pregnancy, it is going great. I think sometime between Thanksgiving and now I have really popped. People are finally noticing I am pregnant without me telling them. Most people still tell me I am small but at least I have a cute baby bump now.

This past week I headed back to work after a nice 2 week break. It was great to be back to work but at the same time the 3rd trimester exhaustion is starting to set in. I am hoping for lots of snow days and late starts between now and the time Ant comes. Lastly, heartburn has really started to kick my a$$. The funniest thing is that water seems to make it worse. Thank goodness only 8 weeks to go!!!


  1. Have you tried milk for the heartburn?

  2. Cute room...I love the colors :)

  3. UGH, heartburn was my enemy both times. Talk to your dr. about Zantac. It saved my sanity. You look great! Love the baby bump :-D
