Third Trimester Pregnancy Journal: Week 32

Wow!  The third trimester really flies by.  Even being done with work, I feel like I don't have enough hours in the day.  Of course, I am resting lots, but there is also a tonne going on in this house in terms of renovation, organization and general baby preparations.

I have so much to share it is getting a little overwhelming.  I had to specifically put "Blog" on my list of things to do today in hopes that I might actually get around to it.  And here I am.

During week 31 I celebrated my 30th birthday.  It is a milestone birthday, but went by pretty quietly.  My sister came to town to visit, which was great, and Alain's family hosted a little get together for me too.  I hate getting this sort of attention (I will cry if I am singled out to be sung to at a restaurant, for example), but I tried to be a good sport and even let them sing to me.

Here are a few photos of the big event:

I got a stacking planter, which was all I really wanted.  It has already been filled with lots of yummy herbs (I got money for the herbs for my birthday too!) so I am a happy girl.

I also got 24 strawberry plants that will hopefully bring us yummy strawberries for many years to come.  That was my gift from Alain. 

There are obviously lots of baby expenses at this point, so we didn't go too crazy in the gift department this year, which is totally fine with me.

Finally, here are the belly shots:


  1. Happy Birthday! Next year you will have a baby daughter to celebrate with.

  2. Happy Birthday! You are looking brighter and more 'blooming' by the day... being off work is suiting you!
