Pregnancy Update 7 Weeks Left

In 2 days I will be 33 weeks along!  I really don't have that much time left and every day I am getting more and more excited, as well as more and more nervous.  I have done a ton of reading on what to expect for delivery and after the baby is born, but until you experience it there is really no way to prepare yourself.  I get so nervous with the unknown so I am trying to just stay excited about the baby getting here and trying not to think about the actual delivery.
 
1. Symptoms

Now I am at the point where everything I eat takes a really long time to digest so it feels like I have a whole meal stuck in my throat for hours at a time.  I am also really thirsty all the time, but the draw back is if I drink too much water I get really full and it makes the indigestion worse!
2. Weight Gain

I have gained about 36 pounds so far.  Seems like I gained 30 pounds really fast and then it has taken months just to gain the last 6 pounds.  I wouldn't be surprised if I gained a few more because they say now till the end I can gain about a pound a week but luckily so far it has not happened.

3. Maternity clothes?

Now all I wear is maternity clothes, I don't have a lot of them so I wear the same things over and over again, but I think who cares, its better not to waste money on a ton of stuff I won't wear again for a long time if ever.

4. Sleep
 
I have a hard time sleeping on my side.  I constantly wake up and find myself on my back and quickly switch to my side since they say you are not suppose to sleep on your back.  I always wake up mysteriously around 3am and struggle to fall back asleep before my alarm goes off for work.  Lets just say the interrupted sleep has made me extra tired during the day.

5. Movement

The baby moves constantly! Kicking and rolling and punching, part of me really likes it cause I know he is in there and doing good but sometimes it catches me off guard and scares me.  Also sometimes it will hurt like he will bunch up and put a lot of weight in one area, but over all I like the movement.

6. Food Cravings
 
I have not had any food cravings at all, weird but true.

7. Gender
 
Its still a boy!  We have done the nursery in a nautical theme, lots of blue and yellow and white.  It has turned out really cute!

8. Baby Buys
 
We have everything we need for the nursery and the baby. We have found some great deals at a second hand baby store near my mom's house.  We were able to find a glider and tons of brand new clothes all for under around $100.  I still have to wash some of the baby clothes, but I have most of them washed and put away.  Every weekend I am doing one or two things in the baby room so hopefully everything will be done by the time he arrives.

9. Names
 
This is the hardest thing in the world, picking a name.  We have about 5 names we like, but we are not really telling anyone cause everyone has an opinion and they are not always the best.  We will probably bring our list of names to the hospital and pick there.
 
52 days till my due date and only 44 days left of work.
 
I can't wait!

52 days sounds a lot longer than 7 weeks.

You are waking up at 3 am to get yourself ready for when the baby comes, you will be used to it :)

It's so close now, I'm constantly thinking about when you're gonna call and say you went into labor, I always hope it will be after Brandon is off work so I can get there right away lol.
