Wednesday's Weigh In & 33 Weeks Pregnant

It's so hard to believe I only have 7 weeks left!

Weigh in this week was bad. B A D. Up another 3 pounds!! Ugh! Bringing my total to about 19 (almost 20) pound gain total.

I am trying to tell myself that 20 pounds for 33 weeks is really good {for me}. But I can't get over how I gained 6 pounds in the last 3 weeks. What if I keep gaining like this for 7 more weeks?! Yikes!

Stopping weight gain, or slowing it down while pregnant is a whole different ball game than maintaining or losing weight when not pregnant. It comes down to this...
I H A V E N O C L U E H O W T O D O I T.
I walk 7-9 miles a week. I know I could be eating better, but I am not eating as bad as I once was...
Ok well I could eat a lot better I think. Lately I have been craving lots of sweets.

I had a prenatal appointment yesterday. Went great! Baby is head down, she said he got much bigger. She read my birth plan and spoke with Davey and I and is on board with everything. She even said I can push in any position I want to: standing, sitting, on my side, squatting, whatever I want. And Davey can help catch the baby.
After my appointment we went to tour the hospital. I saw one of the two rooms where they have a big tub for women going natural. It's nice, but I gotta say I'm a little disappointed. I don't know what I was expecting, but it's still a hospital room. Ya know?
I plan to make it a very nice relaxing space with dim lighting and music and lavender sent. They said that is no problem at all.
We are DONE with the baby's room! I am just waiting for a special frame I ordered to come in, and then I will be posting pictures. :)
Funny how much time we spend preparing for baby's rooms, when they don't even care about them?
But they are oh so fun.
I did his first load of laundry as well. It's all becoming so real. Soon we will be a family of 5. Shane and Cody will have a baby brother. They are so excited. Yesterday Shane was very disappointed we left the hospital tour with no baby. He really thought we were going to get his baby brother. We saw a baby girl in the nursery and he kept saying we had to go get "him" that's baby _____ (baby's name). =) it was so sweet!
Thanks for reading, and pics of the nursery up soon!

Love, The Curvy Housewife

Hey, do me (and yourself) a favor and STOP worrying over the weight gain! You said yourself that the baby had grown quite a bit. Your body will do what it needs to do to facilitate that growth! :) As long as you're eating healthy, are active, and have a clean bill at the doc - don't worry! You know it'll come off later, especially taking care of ALL THOSE BOYS! :)

I'm also jealous of your birthing options - I would have loved to have had a bath available! Hopefully for our next one we will have some place to do more of what we want...
