*29 - 33 Week Updates*

I can't believe how long since it's been since I've updated.  It's been a really busy last month.  I've been working on the baby's room and getting my classroom ready, which has taken up a lot of time.  I've been struggling with some anxiety and trouble sleeping.  It really started after having to go to L&D for a really strange shake/shiver Oliver did.  I felt him some after, but not much in the morning.  It was such a scary experience, but I'm glad I went in and got him checked.  We also found out that Oliver is breech and the shock of having to get a C-section was a lot for me.  I know that a safe and healthy baby is the most important thing, and I can't wait to meet this little angel.  I'm so blessed to have such a loving and supportive family.  There were a lot of wonderful moments over these past few weeks as well!

How are you feeling this week?  Definitely a lot of different feelings over the past month.  The biggest feeling over the past week is fatigue, due to lack of sleep and starting school.  Having the anxiety over lots of things that have happened over the past month and the future.  All I can do is take things day by day and remind myself how blessed I am to be having a little life growing inside of me.  I'm feeling pretty good physically and Oliver is doing well.

Favorite moment this week?  I've had a few favorite moments.  I had a wonderful baby shower.  I got a 3D ultrasound and it was the most beautiful moment of my life.  Getting to see my beautiful son like that was so neat.  I have been experiencing hiccups which are always interesting.  I'm feeling stronger pushes and rolls.  I've gone swimming a few times and love feeling baby when I'm in the water.  I love seeing how excited Alex is about the baby.  I have really enjoyed putting the baby room together with him and see it come together.  He's going to be such a great dad and I'm so grateful to have him in my life.  

Any new developments?  Well, Oliver is moving from transverse to frank breech.  Looks like he will be staying that way.  He is growing right on track and according to his head measurements, is a little ahead.  They are estimating him to be about 8 lbs.  He's incredibly beautiful and has lots of hair!!  I love feeling him move all the time.  It's so comforting.
