Are you sure you aren't having twins?

Yep, I got that dreaded comment last night, from a guest at my hotel of all people! Its called tact people. :)

Total weight gain/loss: 25 lbs...I gained 6 lbs in 3 weeks....gulp!

Maternity clothes? always

Stretch marks? They are there, but mixed in with some old school ones

Sleep: Good nights and bad nights

Best moment this week: Hanging out with my nephew and niece. We babysat them on Saturday and it felt like I had a little family when we went out to eat and shop. I cannot wait to do this with Keyser.

Movement: hes a crazy man.

Food cravings: that possible?! Snickers bars this week! (but I have only had 1 :)

Gender: BOY! Handsome and adorable!

Labor Signs: no, but the Braxton Hicks have become more intense. I woke up a few times to feeling my belly tighten!

Belly Button: still in, I dont think it will ever pop out!

What I miss: energy! and being able to get socks on without a lot of grunting!

What I am looking forward to: Having this handsome boy in my arms!

Weekly Wisdom: This applies to my sleep...I am always looking forward to sleep the next day. So if I have a bad night, I just tell myself, "just get through today and you can sleep tonight" It helps to have goals ;)

Milestones: only 4 weeks to full term and 7 weeks to due date! Seriously?!

32 weeks, belly shot, and nursery progress!

Hello blog world! Long time no talk :)

The Thursday before my baby shower, I got the biggest surprise! My mom, who I was for sure was not going to make it to my baby shower, was coming home, and she was taking me crib shopping! I was really down about her not being able to come and all, so this was a big spirit lifter for me. I was shocked when she threw in the bit about getting the crib and bedding :) We went to the store that she has bought all the grand kiddos cribs at, and we looked around and I fell in love with the masculinity and sturdiness of the Munire Magestic crib! I ordered it in the color shown goes great with the nursery colors and the bedding I picked out. The only downside is that I ordered it at about 30 weeks, and it will take 8 to 14 (!!) weeks to come in, so I will bet ya the baby is here before his crib gets here. Its okay though because we are using a bassinet for the first month or 2 anyway.

So here is the crib (pic from internet)!

And here is the bedding! I love it and it matches our paint perfectly! I love how its not like everything else I have seen...

We also got a gate to keep the doggies out of the nursery because they are nosy butts! It has a little door that swings open so I don't have to try to swing my leg over while holding the baby :)

And here I am in all my 32 week glory...Lordy, he is getting huge!

And last but not least, here I am from my shower which was August 29th! We had so much fun and everyone was so generous! It was mostly family with a few friends thrown in and we had a great time. I would show you more pictures, but seriously, I looked like a whale :( Its okay, it had to do with the angles and me sitting down with my comfy dress, but I really don't mind if it means this little boy is growing big :)

For our shower we received out Graco Travel System (in the Little Hoot cute!), our high chair (also Little Hoot), a gazillion receiving blankets, our scrapbook and baby book, cute clothes, a diaper bag, and way too much more cute stuff to even mention! I am very grateful for the wonderful people in my life!

In un-baby related news, I started back for the fall semester 2 weeks ago and it has taken over my life with school and all. I was very hesitant to start school this semester, because frankly, I thought I was crazy for doing this with a baby due in the MIDDLE of the semester, but it turns out I have some awesome professors who understand my situation and I have made arrangements for the week or so I plan to be out of class. From every one I have talked to, it will be harder for me to leave the baby with my husband or mother in law, then it will to actually sit in class. I am worried about the whole breastfeeding thing too, but I will cross that bridge when I get to it. For now, I am focusing on keeping my grades up for the next month and however long so I am in good shape when I am out having the baby. Luckily, I only have class 2 nights and week for 2 hours or so and one class on Saturday for 4 hours, so I am not gone too much.

Well onto my boring survey :)

How far along? 32 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: 19 lbs so far

Maternity clothes? yup

Stretch marks? They are there, but mixed in with some old school ones

Sleep: The worst part of sleep is getting a good solid 5 hours in, then waking up to pee and not being able to get back to bed. It has happened to me 3x in 2 weeks.

Best moment this week: Our friends had a baby girl this week and we got to visit Miss Kathryn in the hospital...she is beautiful!

Movement: he has gotten more active recently...I saw something move all the way across my belly!

Food cravings: Spaghetti and anything with beef in it

Gender: BOY! Handsome and adorable!

Labor Signs: Some Braxton Hicks more frequently

Belly Button: still in, I dont think it will ever pop out!

What I miss: nothing! I am getting really excited! Well, I do kind of miss my energy!

What I am looking forward to: Having this handsome boy in my arms!

Weekly Wisdom: You can do it...This is my mantra lately!

Milestones: School started which means time is going to fly! Am I ready? I sure hope so!

Oh yeah, and I almost forgot... He has a NAME! We announced it to our family and friends and the baby shower and now I will announce it to the internet world! :)

Our little monkey will be Mr. Keyser Maddox Johnson :) We love it!
( and it is pronounced Kaiser, you wouldnt believe how many people have thought its Key-ser and in lock and key. Oh well, Keyser is the original spelling and we love it so thats all that matters :)
