Week 33

Well here we are in week 33- 8 MONTHS PREGNANT! Oh my goodness I can't believe it! We just got back from Georgia for Labor Day. Oh, we miss it so much. We had a great time with our families, but it was good to come home. My back has started to hurt in the last week, for the last week-I guess I am just starting to experience signs of being 8 months pregnant:) I had a doctor apppointment on Wednesday. I was very pleased and felt very good after coming out of this appointment. I had a really good doctor who brought in my chart and we went through everything. He said the baby is perfect! Everything on our ultrasound showed a perfectly healthy and well porportioned baby. There was enough amniotic fluid, my blood pressure and sugar was perfect, and my weight gain is where it should be. I have really tried hard to have a healhty pregnancy and I am proud that I gave my baby the healthiest environment I could. The doctor said my size was perfect for how far along I am, and he thought the baby would be a perfect size for a normal delivery...hopefully it will stay that way:)Our birthinf classes went well, and our tour of the hosital was great. It is a brand new L&D ward and it will be very nice when the time comes.

Still working at the preschool, although, I am starting to wonder how much longer I can do it:( With my back hurting, it makes it really hard to work with eleven 3 year olds.

I am anxiously awaiting this precious baby's arrival, but I am also feeling really sad about not being pregnant anymore. I cannot think of another more precious thing than being pregnant. I have enjoyed it sooo much! I am finishing up the nursery and starting to get everything ready. I have all the clothes cleaned, bottles and paci's cleaned, and we are going to attempt the car seat...Other than that, still doing great, and ready to enjoy the last 2 months of pregnancy!!

Food Aversions: Chinese, Mexican, and depending on the moment-many others
Food Cravings: Cereal, Subway, fruit, and Caffeine Free Coke:)
Weight Gain: 20 pounds
Swelling: Little bits in my feet after a long work day
Baby Movements: All the time

I am going to attempt recording the baby moving around soon!

Hope all is well!
Weston and Rachel

Hey Rachel, Its Rachael (Luttrell) Wright. We were in elementary school together. Sarah Moss gave me your website address and I thought I would leave you a comment.

Congratulations on the wonderful blessing of your upcoming bundle of joy. My husband and I recently had a baby of our own. I've got a blog started for his 5th month birthday. You should check it out. If you have any questions or concerns about your pregnancy feel free to ask. It sounds like you are doing juussst fine though! Congrats to you and Weston again!
