I am officially 32 WEEKS!!
Good grief time has flown by! Feels like yesterday when I announced what I was having!
I've had a few appointments over the last 12 weeks, my recent one being on Tuesday (same day as my sister's 12 week appointment, so fun)! So far, everything looks really good. I had my glucose test and am relieved to have had great results! That drink was seriously nasty ha ha. I thought it wouldn't be too bad, but it was a little worse than I thought. Took about an hour for my stomach to calm down.
I found out that Tayen is a MOVER. Holy crap does this kid move a lot! He is all over in there. It's all day too. He moves the most while I'm working at my computer and when I go to bed at night ha ha. But I can't help but feel sooo grateful for all that moving. It's such a wonderful feeling and can never get annoyed of it. I don't think I've even gotten over the SHOCK yet of being pregnant ha ha, and I'm almost done! So weird.
Che and I recently bought our crib and baby bedding. It was so fun ordering it together, picking it up, and putting it together. I just love it! We also got a matching valance that is soo cute. I will probably take some more pictures later of Tayen's room, but here's a sneak peak at the bedding. We've also bought some diapers here and there a different grocery trips and have gotten clothes from our mom's already. But that's quite normal! They're just super excited! Especially Che's mom. She isn't a Grandma yet, so she is thrilled. Che is an only child, so she's relying on us to give her grandkids ha ha.
We've already gotten a few stuffed animals from some family. They are already best friends as you can tell :)

I forgot to mention that over the weekend my mom and I got to spend time with Tyson, Alli, and Brycen in Ogden. It was so much fun. I love that Alli and I can talk pregnancy, it's what I've wished for forever!! We had such an amazing weekend and I discovered a few new things about Brycen, including that I think he is going to enjoy baking just like his mom :)
My Young Women and leaders threw me and another leader (Jessica) in our ward a baby shower on Tuesday. It was so much fun and so sweet of them. We played a few games and they got us a cake as well. It was a blue and pink shower since I'm having a boy and Jessica is having a girl. The girls also tied blankets for us and we got a fun little gift bag full of goodies. We have the best YW ever! I just love my calling.
Don't you just love the cake?
Everyone seriously had a blast
Can't forget the candybar diaper game!!! That actually didn't go over to well with me ha ha. The melted candybars started to look too real and I almost puked ha ha.
By the end of the shower, some of the girls decided to eat the baby food from on of the games. I love these girls, they're hilarious! Did I already mention how much I love my calling? :)
I haven't felt sick at all for the passed 10 weeks, just really tired. I'm starting to slow waaay down and beginning to waddle ha ha. Che says I've been waddling for awhile and I'm sure that's true. I guess I just didn't realize it til now. Being short doesn't help any either ha ha!
I've had crazy pregnancy dreams/nightmares and sometimes wake up swetting. I have baby on the brain 24/7. I've sat in bed sometimes wondering what a contraction feels like and if I will know when I have one. I've wondered if I will go full term or come early, if I take pain better than I think, if I will have complications, if being a mom will come too hard for me...I just think about these things so much! I do think that when the time comes though, that everything will turn out and that I will love that baby so much that the answers will all just slowly come.
My little brother leaves on his mission 6 days after my due date. I just know it will be an emotional month for everyone. It's such an exciting time for many things that it's hard to wrap my head around it all. But in the end my heart bursts with gratitude knowing how blessed I am. I'm just so grateful for my family and for this baby on the way. I'm so grateful for my little brother and the choice he's made to go on a mission. I just know he'll do great. Even though I have so many thoughts right now of everything that's going on, my heart is so full and I LOVE my life. I am so incredibly lucky. I know Che will be an amazing dad and can't wait for him to hold his son for the first time. My Heavenly Father has blessed me with the best companion in the world, the best family in the world, and a baby boy on the way. So many countless blessings!
FUTURE MISSIONARY...I just love my little bro
Here's to the last couple months of pregnancy!! Can't wait!
