I don't know about where you are, but it has been HOT here! I mean, I'm probably way more sensitive to the heat than most PLUS I'm very pregnant... but I'm kind of miserable! haha I feel like I can hardly function - hence the lack of new blog posts! But, I do have some really fun content planned for the upcoming weeks, INCLUDING the much requested Cleaning Schedule and some cool collaborations, so definitely keep checking back!
This past weekend was a very busy one, packed with social activities for James! We went blueberry picking with friends again on Saturday, and then on Sunday we went to another of James' friend's second birthday party! It was a fun weekend!
Yesterday, I posted on Instagram (@annamcohenblog) and Facebook a picture and a whole thing about my experience with trying to breastfeed James. The feedback was so incredible. So many women shared their similar stories, feelings, experiences, and words of encouragement and love. It was so beautiful and I'm so thankful for all of you!
As far as my pregnancy goes, I'm feeling great! Thank the Lord! Still no issues, or concerns, or problems or anything at all! Aside from feeling huge, and from my lungs and organs being compressed - I'm feeling really well and I couldn't be more thankful!!
We set up the baby's bassinet this weekend (or should I say, Ben did) and it is so exciting to start getting his little area in our bedroom ready for him!
Ok, here's this week's survey:
How far along: 32 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: Up nearly 30 lbs as of my last appointment 2.5 weeks ago.
Maternity clothes? Yes!
Stretch marks? All around/above my belly button. Getting more and more every day...marks of this beautiful gift of being able to carry two sons!
Sleep: It's been ok!
Best moment this week: Blueberry picking with James and our friends, doing the "baby shark" dance that James learned at his friend's birthday party - Ben, James, and I danced around the kitchen blasting the song and it was just such a happy wonderful fun moment that I'll remember forever. I love my sweet family!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Movement: So much! :)

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks.
Belly Button in or out? Mostly out, but the top is still sticking out a bit more than the bottom!
