32 Weeks!

This post is only a couple of days late...I meant to write it on Thursday when I actually hit 32 weeks, but I find of forgot...Oops!

I have to admit...31 weeks made me nervous.  I know too many people who have had their babies at 31 weeks, and even though all babies are doing wonderfully, I just didn't want to join that group!  So to be past the 31 week range, helped me breathe a little sigh of relief.

Since making it to 32 weeks, what have we gotten accomplished?  I have gotten both of the steroid shots, which were planned, just in case I do happen to have Miss Cameron earlier than the planned 37 week delivery.  Honestly, I have heard many people say how much those shots hurt...I thought they were both a piece of cake.  My weekly P17 shot hurts more on most weeks than those did. 

We hung up Cameron's letters in her room.  This is a HUGE step for us.  We have now personalized her room to the point where it.is.hers.  The nursery started out as being planned as the nursery.  When we were pregnant with Bailey, it was going to be Bailey's room, but we never got a chance to personalize it.  There were a few clothes we had bought for her, but nothing with her name on it.  Then after she died, it because "the nursery" again. 

Now, there are letters hanging on a wall in there that specifically say Cameron!  It is HER room.  My dear BLM and friend, Jessica Malloy at Crafty Creations handpainted Miss Cameron's letters for us, and they look wonderful!  She is so creative and I recommend her to anyone!

I have finished Cameron's blanket I have been knitting for her.  Adam chose the color, so it's purple of course, but I think it looks very nice!  I am very excited to have it finished, because I think it's a blanket I would like to take to the hospital to use as the backdrop for her hospital pictures.  Now I just need to choose her picture outfit!

Closer up picture and the blanket is folded in quarters

Blanket is laid out on the couch...excuse my feet at the bottom.  :)

Since finishing Cameron's blanket, I have started working on Adam's blanket that I bought the material for in 2008.  It's John Deere...and honestly, I haven't been to excited to work on it...lol

And finally, pictures from this week of the ever growing belly!
She's in there and she's growing!

My view!

We are getting closer, but we aren't out of the woods until she is here, safe and sound, alive and breathing, and being loved on by all the people who have anticipated her arrival for so long.

I am so happy for you Danae. Everything is going great, you look so beautiful with your bump! and I love the letters. Right now the kids share a room but when they have their own I'll have to get some of those made. Thinking of you my friend xoxo

It is a big step to personalize the nursery but you did a great job. Those letter are beautiful! You're getting so close. I remember when I first came into the BLM community and found your blog and you were so early along with Cameron. Now, she's almost here! Wonderful! :)

Happy 32 weeks! Not too much longer now. Cameron's letters are precious! Jessica did an awesome job on those, and I love the complimentary decorations. You also did an incredible job on Cameron's blanket. It is beautiful, and I can't wait to see the pictures of Cameron all bundled up in it and heading home from the hospital. You look great! <3 <3 <3
